Teen Yoga

Popular Hits Tuesday, 25 March 2014 03:52
From the Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, yoga teacher Kathleen Kastner leads Miss Teen USA 2005, Allie LaForce, through an energizing power yoga practice suitable for both beginner and intermediate practitioner alike. Kastner, who owns MayaYoga studio in Kansas City, Missouri, starts by teaching ujjayi breath to help calm the mind and nervous system and relax the muscles. Individual chapters (plus a booklet) feature demonstrate asanas in the 55-minute vinyasa, including Sun Salutations, standing poses, Crow, Boat, and Camel. The low-key Kastner gives basic information with practical modifications (that her new-to-yoga student deftly applies), as well as gentle alignment instructions. You can flow through the sequence with or without the music, chanted by Mantra Girl. The practice winds down with seated poses Janu Sirsasana (Head-to-Knee Pose), Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose), and Upavistha Konasana (Wide-Legged Seated Forward Bend)--and lying-down poses: Sucirandhrasana (Eye of the Needle Pose), Jathara Parivartanasana (Revolved Abdominal Pose), and, of course, Savasana (Corpse Pose). Aside from the presence of LaForce (in her cute BaliDog yoga pants) and a short pep talk from young gals and a guy to exercise and eat well, there's little about this practice that's distinctly teen and we mean that in a good way. So if you re buying this for your child, you ll probably enjoy rolling out your mat too. Lorraine Shea --FIT YOGA Magazine, Oct. 2008

About Hannover House

Hannover House is a full service media company, specializing in the production and distribution of feature films for theatres, home video and the Video-On-Demand formats for the North American retail marketplace. Formed in 1993, Hannover House concentrated it’s activities exclusively in the literary, book-publishing industries until 2003 when the company entered into the DVD marketplace.

Now, with over 200 titles in its growing film library -- over half of which are in active distribution -- Hannover House has quickly ascended to a dominant role as a leading, independent distributor in the U.S. market. The company is particularly noted for its successes in placing DVD titles within mass merchandisers and key chain stores. Retailers carrying Hannover House products include thousands of independently owned and operated retail video stores and book stores, and most mass merchants and major retailers. In addition to this "core" distribution activity, Hannover House is launching two, major new ventures in 2014.  "VODwiz" is a new video-on-demand portal for independent films, structured similarly to Netflix and Amazon's streaming services;  "Medallion International Pictures" is the company's international sales and financing operation, designed to provide Hannover House with up to five, high-profile theatrical features each year.

Parade of Hits

Hannover's early successes in book publishing were sparked by critical acclaim and commercial success with "Sacred Prey" and "Quietus" from novelist / screenwriter Vivian Schilling.  The Company achieved its first # 1 Best-Seller on Amazon.com (and it's highest position on the New York Times Best-Sellers list) with the 2003 release of  Blood, Money and Power: How L.B.J. Killed J.F.K. by Barr McClellan.  The addition of DVD products in 2003 marked a turning point for the Company, as a steady slate of releases achieved top-selling status for Walmart and other major retailers, both as new releases as well as within the popular Budget Bins.

Top selling DVD titles include (listed alphabetically):  Classic Comedies Pack, Classic TV Pack, Come Away Home, Fun Park, Future Shock, Grand Champion, Martial Arts Action Pack, Samurai Action Pack, Twelve and Zombie Warz. At present, Hannover House is releasing about 24 titles each year to the DVD / Blu-Ray and V.O.D. markets in North America, with three-to-five titles also enjoying some degree of theatrical release.  The new productions being funded through Medallion International Pictures are expected to have broad, nationwide theatrical release support.
