A teacher with more than 25 years of experience, and a regular on the yoga festival circuit in Australia, John Ogilvie is well known for his challenging classes infused with light humour. In his new DVD, the fourth in a series, he offers two yoga classes filmed with real-life students. The 20-minute intermediate practice is designed for daily use and includes a short 5-minute Savasana. The 90-minute advanced class is what you can expect when visiting Ogilvie’s Byron Yoga Centre in northern NSW—a diverse range of poses and variations instructed with clear guidance. Filmed on location at the studio, it’s refreshing to watch a yoga DVD featuring real people making the poses their own, respecting their body’s needs, and inspiring the viewer to do the same. Daily Practice Class & A Class with John Ogilvie can be used to supplement your regular yoga classes or to kickstart a home practice.
