Hello, and thanks for joining me on Week 6 of this 10 week beginner yoga journey as we follow the yogic teachings of Ruth Bender!
I am Amy Nesbitt, RYT-200, and I am so excited to be sharing this work with you! This week I am "on location" at Day Pond State Park in Colchester, CT at the majestic Day Pond Brook Falls! I decided to film the warm-up's here!
This video was inspired by Ruth Bender's book, "Yoga Exercises for Every Body," published in Avon, CT back in 1975. Ruth was a beloved Connecticut Yoga Teacher & Author who taught many! Her clear and concise teaching make it easy for a beginner to follow along in a thorough, yet relaxed manor. See the amazon reviews for her book (below)! The work has helped many, and is more relevant today than it was 40+ years ago!
This work is amazing for warming up the entire body, to learn basic key strengthening exercises & balances for yoga postures (or asanas), as well as compartmentalized breath-work, guided relaxation, Yoga Nidra and more! :)
Each week I will upload my interpretations of her teachings through my channel. 4 more weeks of increasingly challenging work for mind, body and spirit!
My work as a teacher has been profoundly affected by her teachings, and this has inspired me to share her work with you through these weekly videos! It is my offering to the collective consciousness!
Leave any questions you may have in the comments section below and I will be sure to answer them!
Remember to use a YOGA STRAP &/or a YOGA BLOCK to assist your practice if needed. Week 3 -5's videos incorporates these PROPS to show you how to integrate them into your practice to assist in deepening postures, as well as how to "clean" up your alignment during practice. Props will help assist you throughout your yoga journey!
Don't forget to subscribe, thumbs up, and share with a friend if you would like! I find this work to be most helpful to those with limited range of motion. Consider sharing this video with someone who may benefit from this work. Namaste. Thanks again for watching and see you next time! Peace, love and light! Amy :))

Amazon Reviews of Ruth Bender's book "Yoga Exercises for Every Body" A 10 Week Exercise Course:
Do-Able Yoga, 5 Stars by Val A.
"Many, many years ago I took a series of Yoga classes with Ruth Bender. Somehow fell out of practicing it, and now many years later decided I wanted to give it a try. I remembered the classes with Ms. Bender (an amazing woman, by the way), and was delighted to find a copy of her instruction on Amazon. This is a great little "teaching tool" for the beginner practitioner. Suitable even for an old lady like me. Love it.""
Yoga Exercise for Every Body by Nan C.
"This was my first gentle yoga book. I received it from my Mom as a gift 12 years back. I used this book so often that I ruined the binding. So I am tickled to have another copy now. I have thoroughly enjoyed this book!"
Great Book by D. Ogle
"My mom had this book years ago. She used it for many years. She decided she wants to try it again as she is older and is losing the ability to stretch with age (80). Her disabilities prevent her from doing other types of exercise, but this one she can do. She insisted that it had to be this book. So I found it for her on amazon."
Beginners yoga by Amazon Customer
"I am a newbie to yoga, this book is a clear and gentle start for me. Easy to follow, I feel the muscles with the first session. This is a must for basic yoga."
The reviews speak for themselves!
