It's hands-down my favorite yoga and fitness app. They offer some incredible at-home workouts with fantastic yoga teachers.
My two favorite yoga routines:
- Ultimate Yoga Shred with Sadie Nardini. This 14-day plan features HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) for optimal cardio, fat burning, and lean muscle building.
- Bodystrong with Ashley Galvin. This 30-day set of videos is designed to tone and strengthen the whole body using challenging asana series, multiple reps, and workouts targeting major areas like the core, legs, arms, and booty.
I have a lot of gratitude for both Sadie and Ashley for sharing these kick-ass yoga classes, and a big thanks to the team at Cody for continually offering high-quality videos. Namaste.
One suggestion I'd like to make is I'd like to see longer morning classes and I'd really like to see a before bedtime class.
You can find the videos online over at Gaiam. They're a great deal -- I recommend the $40 'Ultimate Collection' which includes 10 different yoga practices!
Lose weight, reduce wrinkles, fight cellulite; we’re constantly told to fight a battle to be someone other than who we are."
I recently learned about an inspiring yoga documentary called Why We Breathe on Hearts Expanding, a yoga blog I love and follow regularly.
The film features the question: why do you do yoga? The filmmakers interviewed a variety of well-known, experienced yogis and teachers to learn why they practice, what keeps them going, and why they love yoga.
The documentary features contributions from Dice Iida-Klein, Briohny Smyth, Kathryn Budig, Tiffany Cruikshank, John Yax, Chris Yax, and Angela Tara Hsu.
You can find out more about the project on their website or on their Facebook page.
Have you seen any other cool yoga films lately?
The small steps used to readjust alignment in Downward Dog.
Practicing in public generates so much positive energy, don't you think?
The title itself is the Sanskrit word for "the ever turning wheel of life." The filmmakers worked on the movie for five years, taking footage in 25 countries. Talk about a whirlwind adventure in producing art! :)
The premise and look and feel remind me a lot of The Fall, which I adored. So artful, thought-provoking, and poignant.
I've been very inspired by various films, writers, and photographers in recent weeks: Frida (the film and her paintings), Pablo Neruda (his love poetry takes my breath away), and Manuel Alvarez Bravo and Ansel Adams (black and white photos put me in a trance).
What are your favorite films? Have you seen any good yoga documentaries lately? I'd love to hear! Namaste.
