I lost about 40 lbs last year doing cardio, eating right, and also doing some exercises on TV. I found "Shimmy", which was belly dancing, and "Namaste Yoga" on one of the health channels for DirectTV. I ended up gaining some of the weight back and was looking to do what I did before. However, I can't find any of the programs on DirectTV anymore.

Does anyone know any good channels with workouts or something similar to those listed above? Or do you know what happened to the programs?

I've been reading some of the other topics and recently saw something about a website on pilates, which is great. But I really miss the other ones I used to do.

DirecTv has a program on channel 374 (I think) called like Total Body Workout, or something like that. It is on at 9:00 AM EST, and it alternates daily between an hour of yoga, and an hour of aerobics. They focus on different things daily too. I love it!

Unfortunately, shut down as of December 2011, and FitTV is a part of Discovery Fit and Health now, but they don't air the shows anymore. FitTV is where I learned about Namaste Yoga and Shimmy too. I actually bought the first season on DVD. In 2007, I used FitTV to lose over 40 lbs, just watching for good information and tips and working out throughout the day - I hate that channel is gone now.

You can go to for the Namaste Yoga series (they only have sample videos though, no full workouts for free),and you can go to to find the DVDs for that program.

Good luck to you! :)

Well at least I know why the programs just disappeared. I wish had had recorded all of them. I only have two recording of Shimmy.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will try them tonight.
