I love teaching people yoga for the first time as that experience often determines whether they’ll come back again or not.  Like a first date, your first encounter with yoga  sets the stage for whether you’ll sign up  for a second round.

I had the privilege of introducing one of my colleagues to yoga last year.  Since then she’s hired a private yoga teacher who comes to her home twice a week for an hour of gentle yoga. Soon after beginning her new routine she reported:

“I’m just a beginner but I already feel more at peace about my body.”

I recently met  Joanne Spence – an amazing yoga teacher who developed a DVD for beginners: Absolute Beginner Yoga. It’s a great resource.  I’m recommending it to my yoga classes and my health coaching groups.

Joanne’s style is warm, friendly and accessible.  She’s the perfect DVD teacher for anyone who needs to have a positive first date with yoga.

Please check out her website and see for yourself!


And if you order the DVD, please let her know that I recommended her as I want her to know how much I appreciate her work.
