A yoga instructor from NY

"I am a certified Prana Yoga Instructor (based on Kripalu Yoga) and I recently discovered Gurmukh's Kundalini Yoga tape, which I think is wonderful. In my quest to learn more about Kundalini Yoga I ordered this Carol Carlson video. After no more than 10 minutes into this tape I had to turn it off. What is she thinking to do a backbend with breath of fire as her first asana, with no options for modifications for beginners or people with shoulder, wrist or back issues....and even for advanced students no warm up??? I could not go on I was so annoyed at her. I found her tone condecending and annoying. Yoga students seeking an energizing, revitalizing, life changing experience should try Gurmukh or Ravi Singh, both instructors present the practice from a place of love and healing, yet the work outs are physically challenging."
Kundalini Yoga For Grace and Strength

"I have been a hatha yoga practioner for years. This is the first video I ever did of Kundalini yoga. I loved it. I felt so relaxed in mind and body. After I had finished with the video, I desired to go right into a meditation. It felt wonderful. I have never experienced this kind of yoga before. I love hatha yoga but this yoga... is different in a lovely way. In a subtle way, I just felt energetically different. I felt happier the rest of the day. It is strenuous and physically challenging yet at the same time very spiritual. Worth every penny. I can't wait to try other Kundalini videos and learn more about what Kundalini is all about."
Don't waste your money....

"I am not a certified Kundalini yoga instructor, but I do have classes with friends and co-workers. Occasionally we do our class with Gurmukh's video... a wonderful experience -- very uplifting -- she is such a gentle soul. One day, someone brought in Carol Carlson's video and we decided to give it a try. Not only did every one of us find her hard to follow... but we also felt she was very annoying and rather condescending. It did not feel like a Kundalini yoga class at all... not one that we are used to anyway. We have not watched the video since... no one even wants it. If you are looking for a great Kundalini yoga tape, buy Gurmukh's. If you already have Gurmukh's, then try one of the Kundalini yoga websites and try someone else's. Even buying a Kundalini yoga book and going through the sets on your own is better than doing it with this. Honestly.. don't waste your money."
Energizing & Relaxing

"Carol Carlson's video is an excellent way to simultaneously energize and relax your mind and body. If you are a beginner, be prepared to do this video at 10-15 minutes intervals. It is geared more toward intermediate yoga practioners, but she still gives beginner's optional methods to do the exercises. Sometimes I do the entire tape, and sometimes I do it in intervals throughout the day if I am particularly worn-out! I often use the end of the tape (a relaxing meditation) to help me go to sleep or calm me down! In reference to the person who commented on "breath of fire" throughout every exericise, I somewhat agree. I have found that long deep breathing is much more beneficial to me, particularly when my muscles are tight. The longer breathing usually brings me in to the pose with no pain and no thought. This is what I have experienced in other Kundalini classes as well. But, if you get the video, just participate in breath of fire whenever you would like to and use the long deep breathing when you think it necessary. Carol Carlson says this herself!Excellent video!"
