Wow! This woman is no joke.

"I tried this workout because it got some great ratings. I can now see why. This work out is not for the faint of heart. In fact, I would say that the overall workout is on par or maybe a step below a primary series (ashtanga) workout. The poses themselves are not beyond the experienced beginner level. However, it is what she does with them that makes the workout intermediate to advanced. She will perform a given pose repeatedly in regular speed, and then in super slow motion. It is this super slow motion that really builds strength and endurance, because you just can't know how to perform the pose, but you have to be able to hold the pose for a while. In addition, the abs section of this work was very challenging for me. Just so that I don't scare off anyone new to yoga who wants to try this DVD, Tari does offer you the option of watching the pose performed first, then you can follow along with either the full or modified version of the pose. This DVD was 60+ minutes of sweat and work. If you are ready for a fairly intense workout then give this a try."
Great Yoga DVD

"I bought this video not knowing much about yoga (although I once did a yoga class and I've done quite a bit of pilates). Anyhow, my lack of yoga experience really was not an issue. I was able to go through the entire routine and learn all the moves.
I have done many cardio videos, but this video offered something new for me. I actually found it challenging! It really stretches you out and my arms were definitely shaking by the end!!!! This will tone and stretch your entire body!! I really enjoyed this and I actually had to do some of the modifications for the exercises. All exercises were great, but I felt the abs section was not that effective for me... then again I have very strong abs. For each exercise she will do them 2-3 times fast and then they will be done for a slow count of ten. This really works you!
A solid DVD, easy to follow, works your body, I am hooked! I recommend this for ALL levels of fitness. Modifications of the exercises are shown for begineers. (I am at an advanced exercise level and still found this video to be worthwhile)."
You'll definetly feel your muscles with this one

"I also bought this dvd based on recommendations (especially on Collage.com) this is definetley not a regular yoga workout and no, it's not power yoga either! It's strength training based on basic yoga poses but don't get me wrong, this workout is not basic , it's very challenging , I think all my muscles were sore a day after I did this. The workout consist of segments which starts with sun salutaions and than a few segments of lower body and than upper body for a few times and in the end there's an abs section which to me was more for the legs than the abs, and than final stretch. Every exercise is done 4 times x 3 sets with every 4th time is performed really slow so your muscles will work very hard. It was a very "sweaty" workout
and I think it's good when you get bored from your regular yoga workouts or just want a diffeent kind of strength training.66 minutes."

"I bought this video for the name, "Hard-Body" and it is no joke. It was one of the cheaper videos so I was weary of it. I have very limited time to exercise so anything that I do needs to be worth my time. I had bought Quick Fix Power Yoga and this workout is much better. It really works your muscles and you feel great. It is a long video, but you can skip to different scenes if you don't feel like doing that exercise since it is broken down into many different segments. I don't normally do yoga, but this does seem like it is more strenuous than a typical yoga workout. I am a physical therapist as well as a mom of 2, and I feel that this video is safe, yet physically challenging, and well worth your time. This is not an aerobic workout but as far as strength training, it does the trick."
