Real Yoga for real people with real bodies. “Twisting yourself into a pretzel? Is this what yoga is all about? We live in the Real World – Let’s do some Real World Yoga!”
It's the first line you hear when you pop Jackie Camborde's REAL WORLD YOGA in your DVD player, and you know it's not going to be just another workout. Jackie developed the Real World Yoga program because not all people who benefit from yoga are flexible, young and injury-free. In fact, most of the population is battling with at least one of these maladies, if not several.
REAL WORLD YOGA is a program that allows first-time yogis to work at a comfortable level – rest and modification of postures is emphasized throughout. On the flip side, experienced yogis can use the challenge modifications to go deeper in postures and add more power to the program. The workout is a vinyasa-style practice, which means that postures flow from one to the next in the rhythm of the breath. Some poses can be held for several breaths to deepen the posture or to gain flexibility. The program is a great balance of challenge and relaxation, of give and take, and of working at a comfortable level with the ability to go deeper when ready.
