Average Yoga

Daniel Scott designed Average Yoga, a beginner hatha yoga program for the Average Joe. This is a no fuss, no muss, stripped down beginners program that cuts through it all and gets to the meat of the practice quickly. In these 29 short videos, Daniel teaches how to get into all the basic poses, the groundwork of the breath and how to put it all together in a moving flow. This program is essential if you need to move your body in a new way to keep it limber and healthy or if you want to learn the basics before you take a live yoga class. If you, or someone you know, could use a little something to ease the aches & pains, the stiffness & soreness, someone who needs a little something to get them feeling better & moving again, then share this program with them. It’s free for everyone because everyone will benefit from it. This is Daniel Scott’s gift to you.
