GURMUKH ROCKS MY WORLD
David Schnavid | California | 07/08/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"She also kicks my butt. By the end of my first session, I was gasping for air and sweating profusely. But after I settled down, I realized that I felt more awake, more present, and more centered than I have in a very long time. Don't get me wrong, I still love my Hatha Yoga, but this program is a wonderful complement. The energy released is more intense and profound.
To many westerners, Gurmukh may seem a bit odd, but I found her refreshing, funny, down-to-earth, supportive, and very genuine. At the time of filming she was 58, but looks more like 38, and her soft, airy voice sounds more like 18. Makes you want to give this Kundalini thing a try, doesn't it? I pray that I am in such incredible shape as this woman when I'm "middle-aged."
I strongly disagree with the reviewers who think that this program is too strenuous, or even "dangerous." Not once did I feel that this routine put my body in a position it couldn't handle, and I am a relative newcomer to Yoga. Of course you should respect your body's limits and realize that your flexibility and stamina will increase with practice. Any Yoga video worth watching is going to challenge you, or soon you'll be bored of it. Just go a little slower at first, make the movements a little smaller until you build strength. If you feel like you're going to pass out (like I did when I first started), just pause the DVD, catch your breath, and move on when you're ready. Soon enough you'll be able to jam through the whole program without stopping, and you'll feel an energy and awakening that you may never have known before.
If you're a beginner to Kundalini or Yoga in general, don't be intimidated. This program is challenging, but very "doable" for all fitness levels and belief systems. Gurmukh warmly welcomes people of all faiths, and gives encouragement and inspiration that everyone can relate to.
Thank you so much, Gurmukh! I'm so glad I found your Kundalini Yoga video."
Great uplifting Kundalini Yoga - should be FIVE stars

"I got the VHS version years ago & enjoyed it. Gurmukh has a very calm, sweet style to her, very encouraging & she's well-known with celebrities even (though that shouldn't be important). She's more down to earth then Ravi & Anna Brett kundalini yoga dvds which are more stylish/Hollywood, though I have to admit I love their choice of music. She's in her 50s but she looks 30s. She does the workout with you as well at least a few times especially even ones I had difficulty doing & I'm in my late 20s.
It's very hard to do with a lot of aerobic feel. There is also a lot of fast twisting that you may get a little dizzy from if you're not careful. But I always felt great after, I felt increase of energy & much more flexible.
In the meditation after, I am so tired, I sometimes do actually trance out while she plays the gong & they chant. I always feel wonderful after.
If you're into aerobics mood one day & sick of 80s style that doesn't uplift you & make you more body aware, then this is the yoga style for you.
1/2008 - I wrote this review years ago when I fatigued often from dietary issues. I took off one star because I was frustrated with my own inability. There aren't many kundalini yoga dvds out there & Gurmukh Kaur & Gurutej Kaur (names they are giving in yogi/religious training & Kaur is name all females get) are the most spiritual/uplifting to remind you you have the poewr to make your life more loving/positive.
Gaiam com makes this dvd & if you go to their site, they have a PREVIEW there that's FIVE MINUTES long so you can see for yourself. There are also some clips of her & her lectures on youtube."
Great Vigorous Workout (not for beginners)
Courtney C. | South Bend, IN | 11/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)
"My first introduction to this type of yoga was Ana Brett & Ravi Singhs Yoga Beauty Body which I ordered along with Dance the Chakras. I had never done anything like these before and LOVED them!
I immediately purchased 4 more (all excellent) as well as trying out other Kundalini Yoga instructors.
This is the best of the non-Ravi & Ana Kundalini Yoga DVDs. I would prefer to have more breath of fire, and alignment pointers, like in the Ana & Ravi ones but it is very vigorous which I like, in fact, it is so energetic it has a little bit of a dread factor for me. You will sweat and feel amazing afterwards!
Gurmuhk is said to be over 60 and looks pretty good. She is a very inspirational teacher who seems very commited to her message.
If you have never done Kundalini Yoga, this DVD may not be the best to start with - but definitely worth having in your collection."
Tai Chi to Yoga | "Down the shore." New Jersey | 08/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I am 61 years old and this is the best yoga dvd I own. I do the full program 4 times a week. At first it was hard, a real challange. You will break out in a cleansing sweat but keep at it and you will find your body becoming firmer. Your legs will be much stronger as will your shoulders. I started out weighing 185 and after 2 months still weigh 185 but have lost 2 inches off my waist and have greatly improved muscle tone."
