Move It at Home: Baron Baptiste — Soul of Strength

Baron Baptiste is a well-known Power Vinyasa yoga instructor with studios in Cambridge, Brookline, and Boston, MA. He made one of my favorite yoga DVDs - Soul of Strength. It was filmed LIVE at his studio during one of his yoga classes.

Taking a yoga class is an amazing experience, feeling the energy of the group, it's really motivating. Sometimes doing a video at home can be really boring, but this DVD allows you to feel like you're part of the class.

This video shows at least 30 people of all levels and ages, so you can see how poses look on many different bodies. Baron starts off slow and then builds on the flow sequence. He gives options for beginners, and also explains how to take poses further if you are a more experienced practitioner.

The emphasis isn't on doing the poses "correctly." The important thing is to breathe and feel the sensations in your body, and to calm your mind. You want to focus your energy inward to heal and expand your heart. He encourages you to challenge yourself, but to first take care of yourself.

What I love about this video is that you can watch how he walks around and adjusts people in poses. He also gives verbal instructions like "pull your left hip back," and "press your chest towards your thighs," so you can learn to self-adjust yourself in these poses.

Baron is very down-to-earth, loving, and intense, and so is this vinyasa practice. I definitely recommend this DVD to people who already love yoga and to beginners. I especially recommend this DVD to people who think that yoga is boring and easy, because Baron will definitely kick your butt.

Get this DVD through Amazon for $9.98.
