Can anyone give me recommendations for yoga dvds that do not contain downward facing dog poses? I really do not enjoy this position for reasons I don't want to explain here. I tried taking a yoga class at my park district, but there was so much downward dog I ended up quitting after just three classes.

I'm looking for a short-ish (20-30 min) yoga practice that I can follow along with each morning, with the goal of injury prevention in mind.

I'm a 35 yr old female, 5'6", 120lbs, in good general shape (walk loads, work out) who has never been able to achieve a single-push up. It's a key move to many of the workouts I want to do, but most strength-building programs assume that even the weakest can do at least one. What should I do? [more inside]

I've gotten conflicting answers from physicians, teachers, and Google searches so I come to you for anecdotal evidence: Is it really dangerous for menstruating women to practice inverted yoga postures? Has anyone you know ever suffered negative consequences from practicing inversions during her period?
