I confess! I know nothing about Yoga! In fact, when I was but a wee lad, I thought “Yoga” and “yogurt” were the same thing. However, as the years progressed and I became more aware of the world around me, I slowly started to listen for clues as to what this “Yoga” thing meant. I’d hear folks in small groups discussing the benefits of Yoga and that slow drip over the hard rock of my mind wore away the insolence of my youth.
Yoga is over 5,000 years old. Yoga serves as the glue for binding the mind, body and spirituality together as one. Pilates takes several of its exercises directly from the Yoga canon and that was a pleasant surprise since I know and enjoy Pilates.
The PBS Yoga shows of my youth came sprouting back to my mind as a modern wonderment. I decided to confront my ignorance and discover precisely what the practice of Yoga could mean in my life. I contacted a woman named Wai Lana and asked for her help. This review is the result of that connection. Born in Hong Kong, Wai Lana has been teaching Yoga for 15 years across the world. Wai Lana Yoga can also be seen on PBS stations across the country.
I will rate each Wai Lana Yoga Easy Workout video individually with our standard system of one to five Go Inside Magazine Review Lights. Five green GO lights are best while all red STOP lights are the worst. Nothing I say here should be taken as a guarantee of product or a promise of performance. Before starting any Yoga routine, please consult with your doctor first. A text tag will also be placed under the Review Lights so you’ll know the colors of the lights in case you choose to print out this review on a black and white printer.
