Movie Reviews

Love this Workout!
D. Sleezer | Los Angeles, CA USA | 10/15/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a mother of 2 young children. When I'm not running off to soccer practice, or a ballet recital I like to relieve some of my stress through exercise. I loved doing Yoga, but hated that I was bringing Eastern religions in to my home, and letting it infiltrate into my children. I found myself putting the videos on mute most of the time (which if you have ever done any kind of exercise tapes the fun is in the sound). When I caught wind that Janine Turner had just put out a Christoga exercise routine I had to have it. Being able to pop it into my DVD player, and do my workout with the sound on and the kids in the same room is the most rewarding time of my day. Its been like going to church, and the gym all in one!"
Great Beginner DVD with scripture.

"As a Christian and exercise enthusiast, I'm very excited about yoga centered on scripture. I couldn't find reviews for Christian yoga specifically dealing with level. This DVD is a wonderful beginner DVD. Janine Turner recites scripture during each pose. Mary Cunningham leads and has a contageous sparkle in her eyes. The background is lovely and peaceful decorated with crosses & candles. Soft music plays in the background. I look forward to seeing more DVD's from this beautiful actress."
Build spiritual and physical strength with Christoga

"It's about time Christians were exposed to the wonderful benefits of yoga! I bought this DVD and have done the workout twice, and already am experiencing the positive changes. The workout itself is about 70 minutes long, beginning with centering and stretching, advancing to strengthening and action, and finishing with an exercise of balance and guided relaxation, with a peaceful backdrop of candles and crosses. The positions have been renamed to fit a Christian theme - Prodigal Son, Noah's Arch, Lazarus, and Holy Rollers, which made me laugh and was thoroughly enjoyable. Throughout we have beautiful Janine Turner (Maggie from Northern Exposure) reciting some of my favorite and most inspirational Scripture verses. The DVD is completely Christ-centered, and teaches us to worship Him not just with our minds, but bodies as well. I bought this DVD because I was worried that my prayer life was lacking. This is an excellent way to incorporate Christ's Word into your soul.

I noticed that Janine's abdomen showed at times, but didn't really find it to be offensive. She's wearing workout clothes. The workout moves at a quick pace, so it may be a good idea to view the DVD before attempting it, as is advised by the instructor. I didn't, however, and made it through just fine. One thing that could have been done differently was that occasionally, when a position is being held, the video briefly cuts completely to Janine reciting a verse. I wish they wouldn't have done that because a couple of times I looked to make sure I was doing the position right, but they weren't showing that.

All in all, I totally recommend this workout. You will not regret adding this positive workout to your busy life.
My new favorite yoga dvd!!
