Publisher's Summary

Here's an easy to follow yoga class suitable for the absolute beginner. This class has been created by Sue Fuller, a leading yoga professional, to offer a practical and achievable introduction to basic Hatha Yoga techniques.

The class starts with a short guided relaxation that focuses the mind and prepares the body; it then guides you through 14 basic yoga postures, including Spinal Twist, Tree, Warrior 2 and Cat before concluding with a longer guided relaxation.

The class instructions are mixed with a relaxing background music track that sets a mood perfect for yoga. A printable PDF guide book, which highlights the easy to follow instructions and gives a series of reference photos for each yoga posture, accompanies this class.

Yoga2hear classes are practical and effective; they give you the freedom to enjoy high-quality yoga instruction whenever and wherever you choose. Having your yoga class in an audio format encourages you to focus 100% on the easy-to-follow instructions.

Yoga2hear classes can be used again and again. In order to achieve maximum benefits from the classes, they should be practiced frequently. We highly recommend that you use this class in conjunction with the other classes in the Yoga2hear Beginners Yoga Series. Using the classes alternately will provide variety and allow exposure to a broader range of postures and techniques.

    "Great choice for yoga beginners"

    I've only ever been to a handful of yoga classes and have mostly used videos at home, but in both cases I would sometimes have trouble keeping up either because the trainer wasn't describing the movements and poses (and I had to strain my neck to see what I was supposed to be doing) or because some of the asanas were too advanced.
    This program solves the first issue, as Ms Fuller provides full descriptions of each pose, moving from one asana to the next at a languorous pace - it would still be advisable to check out the accompanying guide before you start out, though.
    As for the second issue, this particular "class" is very gentle and slow-paced, and thus perfect even for absolute beginners. So, if you're considering buying this program, you need to bear in mind that this is in no way a rigorous yoga practice, but is geared more towards relaxation, feeling comfortable with a handful of poses, and learning how to link breath and movement (I'm guessing in preparation for vinyasas).
    In fact the only "difficult" pose is downward-facing dog, which brings me to the reason I've not given 5 stars to this otherwise excellent program: I am unable to perform this essential asana because it puts too much strain on my wrists, so I replace it with dolphin. There are several other poses that I've learned to adjust in order to accommodate my body. A beginner who knows nothing about yoga, may not know how to make such adjustments though. It would have been helpful if some additional suggestions were included in the booklet.
    Personally, I'm glad this audio gives me the chance to work on asanas without the pressure of following the pace set by a class or video (note that this 1-hour-long practice covers barely a dozen poses), but in the end I doubt I'll listen to it more than 4-6 times before moving on to the next level.

    "Great addition for your mindfulness practice"
    Any additional comments?

    This is an easy and easy to follow yoga practice that can be incorporated into any mindfulness meditation practice. The audio instructions are excellent, with the focus on the breath throughout. Sue Fuller gives the listener plenty of time to move from posture to posture and includes modifications for some postures where one might feel pulling, discomfort, or pain. Her voice and the background music are both very pleasing and helped me to stay present with the sensations in my body and with my breath throughout the hour long routine. The downloadable PDF is very helpful to visualize the postures prior to actually doing the routine. The only issue I had was that the highest volume was barely loud enough when played from my Kindle tablet without headphones.
