Movie Reviews

Not a real workout - just a demonstration of poses
M. Willmes | Seattle, WA | 07/03/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"First, this DVD is really just a hurried intro to various poses. (Get it from your local library first, if you can). The poses aren't even held for the same amount of time on each side. If you want to learn some poses you can then do on your own, then this should work fine for you, but I like to practice along with a real workout sequence.

Second, Jennifer never misses a chance to plug her other DVD's throughout. She does this at least half a dozen times, and I find it extremely tacky and irritating.

Third, if you use this regularly, you will get really tired of her not only plugging her other DVD's, but also of her saying things like "....and you've been lying around like a lox, as my grandmother used to say". Then she laughs. Or "....and now I'm going to use my towel for another purpose.." and she dabs her face with it while smiling.

Maybe I'm just too picky, but I want a real workout, without a lot of pointless chatter, and without continual shameless plugs for other merchandise."
Not a total follow-along Yin Yoga practice.

"Beth Cholette wrote a great review, I agree with 100%.
Jennifer still over talks at pretty quick speed, the music is nice, but too light which doesn't help overcome Jennifer's stiff, but earnest teaching. Jennifer gives great info about meridians & how the poses help the body which I wish ALL dvds did, even as an alternate narration choice.
For all she teaches, she could have spoke more slowly and made the poses actually last the 5-10 min they should be. Even to save money, she could have only said how to do the pose while she was there, then had an alternate workout choice w/her narration spoken more calmly while only having the backup students hold the pose.
As another said, Jennifer still comes off as arrogant but I think it's more that she is an overachiever or a perfectionist. Her energy in these dvds don't induce calm or positiveness it should, especially for yoga, though I am grateful she has brought the mind/body workout with such great production quality to mainstream. If anyone is sensitive to to stiff, tight, negative energy, keep this in mind, but the knowledge found in it may compensate for that."
Combines understanding with the poses.

"I enjoyed this DVD. I was unfamiliar with the Yin Yoga philsophy and this was a clear introduction to both the philosophy and poses for me. In a calm, low-pitched voice, Jennifer Kries explains the benefits of each pose while 2 assistants demonstrate the pose. She also explains the parts of the body each pose is focused on according to Chinese medicine. I enjoyed the soothing guitar music which was never intrusive and enhanced the mood of relaxation and emotional release. Even though Jennifer continually reinforces to begin where you are, I would have liked to have one of the assistants demonstrate the use of props or beginning positions for those who are really inflexible."
