Default yoga and pilates recommendations

Soccerchick and I are wanting some recommendations on yoga and pilates tapes. I've done one yoga class in my life and have zero experience in pilates. SC has Crunch Yoga and Windsor Pilates already and is looking for something new.

Any suggestions?

Pilates for Dummies - trust me...this one works..don't let the dummy part fool you. It has a basic and intermediate routines on it. The instructor is very clear on the techniques, explains basic, intermediate and advanced versions of the exercises as well as breathing, posture and execution of the exercises.

I have heard good things about the following yoga tapes:

Yoga Conditioning for Athletes by Rodney Yee.

Yoga Zone - they got DVD's for $10 at
http://www.yogazone.com/catalog.aspx?catid=24
I like them because they use pilates, the balance ball and the mat so the routines are more varied.

You can also check on Ivillage on the boards. They have fitness boards and a fitness video exchange board:

This DVD looks interesting: Yoga, Pilates and the Balance Ball in one workout together:

Well, hope this helps!

I've always taken classes lead by an instructor. I've never done it by tape.
Having someone teach you..even if it's only once is fantastic because they can correct your form and then push you do more. If something is too easy, they can immediately make that same move more difficult.

BUT sorority sisters are not useless. Many sessions after chapter have been held using Pilates Method and Karen Voight.

the stuff by Baron Baptiste looks good, but i dunno what one to get. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] i kinda like the idea of Baron Baptiste's Unlocking Athletic Power, but i also am curious about power yoga.

Bryan Kest is pretty nice looking, it may be motivating to watch him... [img]/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I have this one:

I'll do my video tonight and give you a review. It didn't get very good reviews at Amazon.com (they said he was irritating). I'll see what I think about it. (I'm not easily annoyed though.)

I have the Crunch's Fat Burning Yoga and Pick Your Spot Pilates and like both of those. I DID NOT like Denise Austin's Yoga tape. It was awful!

I have heard good things about Rodney Yee but have never tried his stuff.

How is possible??

I think I'd like to try power yoga. I think I took a Bikram yoga class several years ago.

I wonder how big a difference there is between Power Yoga and Pilates??
