Gaiam Launches Beginning Yoga With Chrissy Carter - An Introductory DVD For The Yoga Novice

Stocks in this article: GAIA

NEW YORK, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gaiam, Inc., the leading distributor of lifestyle media, announced today the release of Beginning Yoga with Chrissy Carter. This new DVD introduces yoga in an accessible format that provides a basic foundation for true beginners.

In Beginning Yoga, Carter demystifies and simplifies yoga, providing detailed explanations of the poses and breaking down and reinforcing movements through continuous repetition. In addition to introducing the poses, Carter instructs viewers on how to connect their breath with the movements, one of the most important aspects of yoga.

"Many people are intimidated to go to their first class because they are unfamiliar with yoga," says Carter. "I created this DVD with Gaiam because I felt there was a real need to provide a beginner's yoga tutorial that offered a clear, basic understanding of the fundamentals that would allow them to get started and experience the many benefits of yoga for themselves."

While designed for beginners, the DVD can benefit practitioners of any level. With a strong focus on alignment principles, those of a more intermediate or advanced level can practice with Beginning Yoga in order to help refine their alignment, strengthen and prepare for harder poses, and reinforce areas that may have been originally overlooked.

In addition to the easy to follow routine, Beginning Yoga also teaches viewers traditional Sanskrit terms often used in yoga classes, along with their English translations. Carter explains these words as they are superimposed on the screen, providing a visual and audible introduction and helping them to build confidence in their pronunciation of these terms in advance of their first class.   

"We are so excited to work with Chrissy and offer a true 'beginner's guide' to yoga for all of those who are new to the practice," says Bill Sondheim, president of Gaiam. "There are levels to being a beginner, and in this practice, we provided instruction for those who have never done yoga.  We are confident that Chrissy's relatable approach to yoga will be inviting to those unfamiliar with the practice and will be an educational and enjoyable first step in making yoga a valuable part of their lives."
