Beginner-Level Yoga Instruction for Flexibility, Strength, and Well-Being
Gentle I of The Gentle Series collection includes two 40-minute tracks. Rudy will guide you through a complete 40-minute experience if you play just one of the tracks or use them together for a delicious 80-minute yoga class experience.

• Particularly well-suited for you if you are in your mid-life or senior years

I am so happy to have your CD’s…
I just did yoga tonight with the first one.
It was heaven!
I just finished practicing with Gentle III, and it was AWESOME –absolutely wonderful! I felt very resistant to practice tonight, so I figured I could practice the first 20-minute segment without too much fatigue…Well, from there I ended up practicing the entire cd, including the meditation segment!
Experiencing your Gentle Yoga CDs is quite the ongoing adventure …. like a whole delicious universe of new yoga experiences. I am working my way through slowly and savouring them deeply. A whole fresh universe of practice and support. Thank you for your beautiful work.
As a yoga teacher myself, I love each of the CD’s in this series. Not only have they brought ease into my personal practice, each one reminds me of warm-ups and postures that my students love as well. Rudy’s yoga classes are a respite indeed!
