Yoga For Weight Loss DVDs
Yoga is a really great way to lose weight. By doing yoga on a regular basis you are burning calories, gaining flexibility as well as building strength. As you get stronger, your body requires more calories. So the better you get at yoga the more calories you will burn at rest too. Many people prefer to practise yoga than going to the gym or going out for a run. Time goes quickly when you are enjoying yourself and these classes are both enjoyable and effective at helping you lose weight. Visit our Yoga For Weight Loss DVDs page to see our recommendations.

Yoga For Kids DVDs
Yoga is a great way to keep kids active and help them improve their co-ordination, balance and overall health. You really need to be careful when doing yoga with a child.

They should be allowed to explore their movements and not have to have perfect pose posture or hold poses for any length of time. The yoga videos in this section are an excellent way to introduce yoga to your children or classroom. Visit the Yoga For Kids DVDs to see what we recommend.
