Return to Yoga (part 2)

So as you gathered from my last post, I'm not all that good at staying focussed on yoga while I'm doing it. And I'm not that great at it. However, that doesn't mean that I'm not able to enjoy it. Or at least I enjoy most of it. So much, in fact, that I've done it twice a day (AM & PM) several times already. Shocking, isn't it?

With that being said, I have also verified that two of the DVDs in my collection just aren't doing it for me. One of them is too hard, and the other seems too weird. While I like my other DVDs quite a bit, I have no desire to do these particular ones ever again.

I thought about donating them to the local library, but then I decided to "pay-it-forward" and do a give-away. So...up for grabs to one of my readers are the following two Yoga DVDs in gently used condition from my personal collection:

Maybe you're an avid yoga follower and want to try something new. Maybe you've never tried yoga and want to give it a go. Maybe you love other workouts in their collection and want to try these specific ones. Whatever the situation, my loss is your gain. If the winner enjoys these in a way that I haven't been able to, that's great. If the winner learns that these aren't really their thing either, that's fine too.

Entering my give-away is simple. All you need to do is find something out about these or other Ana & Ravi workouts (perhaps check reviews on amazon) and leave a comment on this post telling me why you are interested in checking them out. It's that easy!

Fine Print:
  • One entry per person.
  • If you are a regular reader/commenter (aka, someone I will recognize) feel free to enter no matter where you live. However, if you are a lurker/infrequent commenter (aka, someone I will not recognize) please refrain from entering unless you live within the USA.
  • I'll choose someone randomly on Thursday. I'd love to be able to get these off in the mail on Friday if I can get the winner's address quickly.


  1. One girl's trash is another girl's treasure ... right? I just rediscovered Yoga again, too, and fully understand the AM/PM addiction. But, hell girl, how did you get into the possession of these? I've never done Kundalini Yoga but heard a lot about it. Would love to find out more and give it a try. And you do know who I am and where I live, right? LOL

  2. Just a suggestion, have you tried the Baron Baptiste DVDs? I have tried different yoga DVDs and didn't like them. But Baptiste's pretty good!
    Not weird at all and it really suits people of all fitness levels.

  3. Good for you for doing so much yoga lately! Don't put me in for the videos. I can't seem to concentrate unless I drag my butt to a class.
    Happy New Year!

  4. HA, Lisa, I've started back to yoga as part of my "move every day" program and today as Ana & Ravi say, I've discovered muscles I didn't even know I had!!!

    Oh, what the heck, throw me into the mix...LOL...Thanks for the pay it forward (I think my muscles will love you!)

  5. Great idea Lisa. I will step out of the give away, but I think you have inspired me to do the same with my DVDs and books I have collected.

  6. Great idea! I think I qualify as someone you would recognize. :) Please count me in - I've been wanting to try a yoga DVD for at home since I can't seem to motivate myself to stretch on my own.

  7. I only have one yoga DVD and it's not that great...so I'd love to add another to the mix to spice things up.

  8. I don't do Yoga. But awesome thoughtfulness on your part!
