"I consider myself to be in pretty good shape, but I had never tried yoga before. On the reccomendation of a friend I ordered this DVD. I really love it.
Being new to yoga I knew nothing about any poses, how to get into them or out of them. The instructor in this dvd walks you through every single pose as you are doing it. I could close my eyes and get into every position just by following the instructor's voice. Having done a few other yoga dvd's now, I really appreciated how this one all flows together. Each pose flows into the next pose with a shift of weight and/turn of the body. You also get the beginners pose BEFORE the instructor moves into the more difficult position. This is different from every other dvd I have done where the instructor moves into the more difficult pose and then after a few seconds says something like "if this position is too challenging then try this" .. I learned modifications on this dvd that i have been able to apply to other dvds.
I am not sure what "power" yoga is supposed to be. I can tell you that this dvd is a full body work out. If you aren't feeling it then you aren't stretching yourself into the poses. I do agree with other posters though, this really a stretching yoga dvd. The poses are not difficult, they are effective. I really feel wonderful after doing this dvd and I use it at least once a week in combination with other yoga dvd's that I have. This one leaves me feeling limber, warm and refreshed.
That being said, if you are looking for a dvd with advanced poses and a high difficulty level, this is not the dvd for you. If you are a beginner, this is the perfect dvd for you."
Might Do Again in a Pinch

"This DVD was just OK. I have been attending yoga classes for the last 6 months and wanted something short to do at home and thought this might fit the bill. The biggest flaw is that they don't name the positions. If you are in "cobra" say you are in "cobra" so a beginner can associate the position with the name. A beginner going from this DVD to a class might have a hard time because they wouldn't know the names of the positions. Also they spent an awful lot of time in the "downward dog" position for my taste and the flow from one position to the next was awkward at times. You were constantly watching the TV rather than relaxing into the poses. Music wasn't very relaxing either. I think I am going have to pass on this one."
Good, but not great

"I absolutely love all of The Firm workout videos, so I ordered The Firm: Power Yoga. However, I'm not that impressed. It's not a bad video, but some of the moves were a bit awkward and I didn't really feel like I got a good workout. The instructor does not use regular yoga terms to describe the moves (like "downward dog"), so you just have to watch her to see what she is doing. Although I am not a Yoga guru, I have a couple of yoga DVDs and have gone to several classes to supplement by mostly cardio & weights workouts. My favorite yoga DVDs so far are the Rodney Yee Power Yoga series, but I am always looking for something even better."
