Colleen Saidman, Yoga Instructor:
...
Colleen Saidman, Yoga Instructor Colleen's introduction to yoga was at the urging of a roommate who convinced her to attend a class at a loft space in New York City over 20 years ago. It was not long after that first class, that her wornout running shoes, her basketball and her boxing gloves became relics of the past. And in 1994, after enduring back surgery, Colleen's commitment to her yoga practice deepened.
A graduate of Jivamukti's Teacher Training program in 1998, she has been teaching ever since. Colleen has been featured in both The New York Times and New York Magazine, the November 2003 cover of Yoga Journal and several best-selling yoga DVDs.
Her passion for working in health care started in junior high at a geriatric center. Certified in Shiatsu, Colleen has traveled throughout Europe and Asia studying complementary medicine and spiritual healing. She also lived in Calcutta, India working with Mother Theresa at the Home of the Destitute and Dying. Currently, Colleen serves as a co-chair of the Urban Zen Health and Wellness Initiative, a foundation dedicated to bringing yoga, massage and holistic therapies to hospitals around the nation.
Colleen co-owns and co-directs Yoga Shanti in Sag Harbor, N.Y. She also leads retreats and teacher trainings nationally and internationally, many with her husband Rodney Yee.

By combining muscle-toning poses, aerobic movements, breathing exercises, restorative poses, and meditation, Saidman has created a unique program that slims the body and focuses the mind for optimum health and wellness.
Saidman, who is also the co-director of the Donna Karan's Urban Zen Integrative Therapy (UZIT) Program and a model with Ford Models for 30 years, developed "Yoga for Weight Loss" to provide an intelligent, holistic approach that also teaches viewers how to apply aspects of the practice to other areas of their lives. "This DVD is designed to approach weight loss by bettering one's health rather than depriving oneself," Saidman says.
...
Colleen Saidman's "Yoga for Weight Loss" has an approximate runtime of 60 minutes and a suggested retail price of $14.98. The DVD will be available beginning December 4, 2012 in stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com.
About Colleen Saidman Colleen Saidman began practicing yoga in 1987, while using yoga as a compliment to her extreme athletic endeavors such as running, boxing, step aerobic classes, and basketball. In 1994, she suffered a back injury that led to surgery, and from that point on, yoga has been her entire regimen to which she is fully devoted, and believes it continues to heal her on so many levels. She graduated from Jivamukti's Teaching Training program in 1998 and has been teaching ever since.
...
Today, Saidman owns and directs the Yoga Shanti yoga studio in the Hamptons and conducts teacher trainings and retreats worldwide.
