Product Description

Amazon.ca

This boxed set of flowing yoga postures for beginners includes four 35-minute yoga videos that are also sold separately: Lilias: Arms & Abs, Lilias: Cardio Challenge, Lilias: Serenity Now, and Lilias: Legs & Buns. You can alternate or combine the workouts, mixing and matching according to your goals or how you feel on a particular day.

Known simply as Lilias, Folan introduced yoga to millions of television viewers 30 years ago. Though the slim, supple body has become middle-aged and the familiar, long braid has been replaced with short curls, her gentle, patient, and clear instruction remains the same, and she is even more inspiring. Her style is inviting because she doesn't show off her flexibility or demand that you get into impossible postures. She starts where you are, explaining how to get into a posture (modified is fine), how to tell if you're doing it right, what your body should feel and look like as you do it, and what's happening in your body. Whether you first experienced yoga decades ago with Lilias or you're discovering it now, she is warm and welcoming, and her instructions are exceptionally clear and simple. --Joan Price

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga For Everyone Feb. 1 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Why is this video set so wonderful? 1. There are four tapes. One concentrates on the mind, the other two on specific parts of your body and the final on cardiovascular fitness. We all know if your mind isn't into it, sometimes you just can't push yourself to workout. It's true a run or vigorous workout does wonders for releasing stress, but you must get yourself to the workout! How many times do you decide to just sit and vegetate rather than make it to the gym or go for that run? With the "Serenity Now" video, you can calm your mind and also give your body a gentle workout that may precede the more intense three videos in the series. The "Legs and Buns" video and the "Arms and Abs" video both concentrate on specific muscle groups and parts of the body. They contain intense yet peaceful, flowing postures that really work muscles you don't even know you had! The "Cardio Challenge" video is much the same and concetrates on a series of repetitive postures, beginning slowly and quickening the pace so you're performing flowing exact movements that will definitely get that heart rate up and make the brow sweat a bit. The key here is that they're intense but they don't involve a lot of jumping around. You can obtain just as good a workout through the peacefulness and serenity of yoga than if you were to take an aerobics step class with loud pounding music and twenty or thirty others jumping around you. 2. Lilias is not concerned with fancy footwear or body baring leotards. She is a beautiful woman and not your average every day gym rat in your local workout meat market. She has a very calm presence and one that's soothing and encouraging as well. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Ready, set, go buy this one! May 30 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Lilias Folans "Flowing Postures" series is what I encourage beginners and the yoga curious to begin with. No matter how "in shape" we may look and feel without good posture we are out of shape. The posture supports our entire body. The first video has gentle movements to tone and build strength in the upper arms w ithout building large muscles. Strong toned long lean muscles is the message here.
.
"serenity now" features slow, rhythmical breathing with relaxing postures that will help you to unwind and quiet that inner chatter. Come on you know you think too much . This will help you get centered while in the background beautiful, soothing music is playing.
As you gain strength and balance move on to the last video a wonderful cardio workout. Lilias is my favorite instructor . I first discovered her in the seventies on PBS. I think if not mistaken. She had a show either really late at night or really early in the morning. Which can be one and the same I suppose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to its promises April 5 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is a great DVD series, perfect for those beginners interested in yoga, or the advanced alike. The variety allows you to work on different areas of your body. I especially enjoy the Sun Salutation cardio challenge because it is an enjoyable workout that raises your heart rate and leaves you feeling so refreshed and ready to start your day.
I wasn't interested in a yoga video which focused heavily on Middle Eastern meditational practices, which is why I chose this set. It is a great exercise video for the body as well as great stress relief for the mind.
