Are you a beginner yogi looking to start an asana practice? Or perhaps you're a more advanced student and need a refresher on the basics and foundations of yoga. Yoga that's easy for beginners to find is important. It's approachable, not overwhelming. You're in the right place if you want simple, foundational, easy yoga to work with.
Wherever you are on your yoga journey, the foundations of a solid practice are always important. That's why Gaia has partnered with yoga pioneers Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee to bring you Yoga Foundations, our newest and most comprehensive guide to yoga.

Rodney Yee offers the following advice for yoga for beginners as well as all yogis. Plus, [meet Colleen and Rodney].(#1)
Another triangle pose, another sun salutation, another day of yoga, sounds like drudgery to the outsider. So are we all changing to the next fitness fad? No way! There is never boredom in the ritual because the nuances are forever different and the exquisite flavor keeps being more refined, delicate and delightful.
So, some people say, "Rodney, another beginner's tape, why?" And I say...
Follow the subtle changes that are inherent in the modulation of the sequencing and instruction to get a little closer to the essence. Change is inevitable and by having a daily ritual we see the impermanence of our aliveness. We are always beginners and always not knowing of the present that is unfolding.
I offer up these new beginner videos as an ongoing inquiry of this wonderful subject of Yoga. If you are just beginning or you have been on this Yoga path before I believe these programs will benefit you in staying current with the wisdom that lies in the heart of your being.
Peace and Namaste, Rodney Yee
