Movie Reviews

A Shorter Intro to the Ashtanga First Series
James E. White | 06/24/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This disc presents a 45 minute routine which introduces the Ashtanga Yoga first series. (The full first series, which usually runs 90 minutes, is not presented on this tape.) Unlike Baron's other video presentations, Baron cues and instructs in this disc on more advanced and traditional elements such as where to focus your eyes, the techniques of breathing, and the internal "locks" or muscular alignments which form the basis of more advanced yoga practice.
This routine is not as physically demanding as level 2 in Baron's power yoga series or the "Soul of Strength" session, but it does present a nice balance of detailed pose instruction and vigorous vinyasa or flowing linkage of poses. It is active and challenging all the way through, unlike some routines which start vigorously and wind down toward the end (this doesn't mean it's better or worse, just different).
It is a power yoga session, which means that the more arcane poses found in Ashtanga are not included in the interest of continuing the flow of the practice - if you are interested in a more traditional presentation of Ashtanga in a 45-minute session, the obvious choice is David Swenson's Short Forms. Some people feel, however, that the traditional poses may place more torque on the joints than is appropriate in a 45-minute session, since you don't have as much time to get warm and loose before working on these poses.
I like this tape quite well, and it is my wife's favorite because of its detail, moderate length and excellent backbending and inversion series."
Great No Frills Workout
Caliyogi | California, USA | 11/08/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I liked the workout. The DVD is not packed with special features or an aesthetically pleasing set (if you want that, check out Power Yoga with Rodney Yee), but I got a great workout that left me centered but also made me sweat. More importantly, even though I've used several yoga dvds before (Rodney Yee, Crunch Yoga (one of my all-time favorites), Bender Birch (difficult, I've only tried it once)), I actually felt like I was learning a new approach to the practice. The moves, taken by themselves, are not new. But his cueing and instruction flow and make me think about emphasizing different techniques as I go through the standard sun salutation poses. Worth a try!"
Best Yoga Video!
A. Vegan | Ontario Canada | 01/14/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Except for the cheesy music and picture quality, this is by far, the best yoga video I have ever done. Not recommend at all for beginners. Baron takes you through a very fast paced routine starting with Sun Salutations, both A and B series. After that you move into a lot of various stretching poses. Unlike other yoga videos I've done, there are no modified poses for different levels. If you want a challenging workout.. buy this video!"
Ashtanga Made Simpler
Roda Distributors | new york, New york United States | 02/02/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The good thing about this tape is that it does make you sweat and it also gives you a renewed and energetic feeling afterwards..Baron had condensed the Ashtanga series into a 40 minute practice,which is ideal for those who dont have an hour and a half to invest..I like the fact that Baron seems very sincere,and I would recommend it to those new or fairly new to yoga practice and also for those pressed for time..A good tape.."
