YOGAmazing - with Chad RoughDo you find it hard to get to your yoga class regularly? Looking for an alternative to the gym? Well the incredibly popular YOGAmazing podcast might just be is the answer for you. Download the videos for free and join the class in the comfort of your own home whenever you want. 

Having just surpassed a total of 1 million downloads this has got to be one of the most popular podcasts currently on the internet. It's not surprising as the professional quality casts with varied and valuable lesson content meet a huge variety of needs.

Now I was initially put off by the introductions to these podcasts (you'll see what I mean when you download them - especially when the host Chaz Rough hugs the camera to tell us he's missed us) but having just followed one of the classes myself I have to say that I'm really impressed. Chaz is a good instructor who clearly explains the poses giving enough encouragement without being over enthusiastic, and the balance between focussing on the body and mind was just right.

In many of the casts the host wanders around the room with the camera as he takes the class through its series of asanas. This really gives the impression that you are part of the class but with the added advantage of seeing it from the teachers' perspective. Throughout the class Chaz also points out the key aspects of the poses and corrects the positions of the participants where necessary (I kept on finding that I needed to make exactly the same adjustments myself so I found this particularly useful!).

YOGAmazing has now released over 50 different podcasts. Many of the later casts are in response to emails Chaz has received requesting routines for specific needs, these include; Yoga for Pregnancy, Yoga for Anger, Yoga on an Airplane and Yoga for Rock Climbers to name just a few. This doesn't mean you have to planning to head out to the nearest towering rock face this weekend, I think we can all benefit from the content of the classes. Generally the casts are between 20-30 minutes in length.

At this point I'd like to just say that I've only managed to get through a few yoga classes in my time so I'm very much looking at this as a novice new to the practise. If you're in the same boat then I'd say this is a good place for you to start, I'm sure however that it wouldn't beat actually going to class in person.
