Move it at Home: David Swenson's Ashtanga Yoga - Second and Third Series

You know how much I love David Swenson's Ashtanga Yoga First Series DVD, but I love his Second and Third Series DVD even more.

Many Ashtanga yoga teachers have made First Series videos, but it's tough to find a video that explains Second Series.

David Swenson takes you through this ancient and challenging series of yoga poses. While First Series involves tons of variations on forward bends that really work the back of your body, Second Series involves backbends that stretch and strengthen the front of your body. You'll also do hip openers and balancing poses like forearm stand. He moves slowly, explaining what each pose is called, the health benefits they offer, and modifications if you need them.

It can be tough to find a Second Series class at a yoga studio, so this DVD can give you a wonderful taste of the entire Series. You can practice along with David, and learn at your own pace. As you learn how to do each of the poses, and memorize the order, you'll be able to lead yourself.

This video also includes the complete Third Series. Most of these poses are extremely advanced, but there's no reason why you can't try them out. It's inspirational to watch David and see what a body is capable of doing through many years of practicing yoga.

Fit's Tips: The fact that Second and Third Series involve such challenging poses is what makes them so much fun. I'm a firm believer in trying every pose because you never know what your body can do unless you give it a try. Order the DVD for $24.95 and you'll be standing on your head in no time.
