"I do not have any of the MTV releases, but there was such great buzz about the quality of McGee's instruction that I purchased this DVD without much of a preview ahead of time- a rarity for me. She certainly lives up to her reputation- in 47 minutes she delivers a sweaty, balancing, stretchy and finally relaxing sequence of postures.
The longest part is the standing sequence at the beginning. She has a nice leg stretch where you hook your big toe and "pointer" toe around your opposite ankle when you're in a one-legged dog (which she uses a few of). Hard to describe, but it feels great on the feet and legs. She does her share of Sun Salutations, but they start off more slowly than usual. She also has some great balancing and twising postures in addition to the usual Warriors. Some of the balancing postures are very challenging- Reverse Half Moon and Crow, for example- but she inspires you to give you her best shot.
The next segment focuses on some classic "stretchy" postures, including a nice Pigeon flow. On preview, some of what she's doing may look a little out of reach, but by the time you get to the floor, you've been so thoroughly warmed up that you'll probably surprise yourself with what you're able to do.
McGee designed a great sequence. In addition, she is pleasant, non-judgmental, humorous and matter-of-fact. She's here to give you a good workout and maybe find a little bit of serenity, but not necessarily help you to achieve nirvana. Overall, a fantastic practice."
It'll have you sweating from the start!

"While I enjoy power yoga very much and I enjoy this DVD as one of several such in my collection, I would prefer a little more warm-up before going into the more strenuous poses. I like doing yoga first thing in the morning, and I have to take some time waking up my body before doing this DVD, as opposed to Rodney Yee's power yoga DVD, which begins more slowly. Still, except for that one complaint, I highly recommend this workout. McGee's voice is calm, never overwhelming, and her cues are right on time, well enough that after a couple of sessions, I can essentially do the whole thing without having to look up at the TV screen. It's a challenging program, but a good one, too."
Simply the best!

"I love Kristin McGee's style of yoga and this is Kristin at her very best.
I have only had this DVD for a couple of months but it is already my most used DVD. I own many yoga DVDs yet I keep coming back to this one. Why? Because it gives me a great workout, a good stretch and also makes me feel very relaxed afterwards. Because it's fun and I never check the time (like I do with many other DVDs). Because Kristin's instruction and form are superb. Because it's challenging but doable. Because the class starts as soon as you put the DVD in. Because the music's gorgeous. Because I can see and feel the results to all parts of my body, especially my arms and legs. Because I am now fit.
Thank you Kristin for the perfect power yoga workout."
Kristin Does it again!! A steal for the price!!

"Her MTV Yoga and Power Yoga videos were great!!! This is better (and cheaper)!!!! The video takes you through a great variety of positions. Her instruction is clear and concise. She encourages you throughout, it literally feels like she is really in the room with you talking you through the poses. She has a beautiful voice and a nurturing presence, this makes this challenging workout so much more fun."
