For any yoga instructor, teaching beginners is a challenge not unlike yoga itself: it's a question of balancing matters both practical (the breath and the poses) and spiritual (such as cultivating the appropriate attitude toward one's practice). That's especially hard to do in the course of a one-hour video--and frankly, most of them don't. But Introduction to Yoga is an exception. Patricia Walden's instructions are clear and complete. While dealing with such abstractions as using yoga to achieve "the union of body, heart, and mind" and find "the path inwards," she also provides thorough, specific details about when and how to breathe as well as properly positioning and aligning the body and finding the logical connections between the asanas. There are plenty of them, too, including basic twists, stretches and bends, standing poses such as triangle, warrior, mountain, and others, and a few unusual movements like the "reclining bound angle" and the "supported bridge." In the long run, actually attending classes with a qualified instructor is the best way for any newcomer to become comfortable with yoga. But for those who can't, Introduction to Yoga is the next best thing. One caveat: along with the standard yoga mat, props such as a strap, a bolster, a blanket, and blocks are used in many of the poses demonstrated. These tools will enhance your experience, but you can use your own substitutes
