This is a GREAT workout. It's a little tough for beginners. It keeps your attention and really stretches all parts of your body. The sound quality is poor at times, but it isn't that big a deal compared to the quality instruction Eva Baresh gives! I HIGHLY recommend this DVD to yoga enthusiasts Beginner to intermediate.
Down to earth, energetic yoga instructor for beginners

"The fact Eva the does it in the living room is great, she's sweet, like working out with a joyous, very energetic girlfriend. She's very encouraging, she gives both the Sanskrit & English pose names, she tells you how to move your body well, she uses great analogies such as, "Like your left ribs are chasing your right" for one of the twisted poses to help keep your torso facing fwd. She has good body awareness & has a very long, detailed instruction on several poses in the library. Because of that, I think this is fine for beginner yoga practitioners or even novices.
Library: Eva Barash w/a male & female students to show how to properly do mountain, downward facing dog, learning a vinyasa (plank, chataranga, upward facing dog), full wheel, why we do relaxation. 30 min.

Seated breathing, neck stretches, neck rolls, simple shoulder stretches. 7 min.
Downward dog/plank & a couple of plank push ups, twisted lunge, plank/downdog, twist lunge other side, plank, downdog, cobra, simple hands on legs twisted lunge, plank/downdog, twisted lunge other side, plank, cobra, downward dog, side plank, downdog, side plank other side, downdog,standing fwd bend, mountain, chair pose, mountain for 8 min.

Not fast paced: Mountain, standing fwd bend, plank, updog, downdog, warrior 1, warrior 2, slow transition (Lester Horton style) to triangle, pyramid pose, revolved triangle, standing split, standing fwd bend, mountain. Repeat sequence for other side. 10 min.
Mountain, twisted chair both sides, chair, mountain. Standing fwd bend, down dog, sphinx, in sphinx pull 1 foot at a time to gluts stretch, child's pose. 3 min
Seated twist to both sides, seated fwd bend (both legs), reclined knees to chest, reclined bent leg twists back/forth & then straight leg back/forth, reclined butterfly, bridge, bridge w/1 straight leg up & other side, fish. 9 min 42 min
Savasana for 2 min w/her quiet, knees to chest, sit back up.
Though the camera angles are great as well as the lighting, when she bends fwd her voice is muffled to the point it's hard to hear or can't understand her at all. Just like her Strength & Lengthen dvd, she is a bit jittery when she speaks, but very calm when she doesn't have to. Because she is probably nervous, it isn't as calming as yoga should be. I think it would have been perfect if she did a voice over after so she can be aware of her body during filming & relaxed voice separately.
Those looking to work out with a knowledgeable, very upbeat, energetic girlfriend style instructor will love this. Those looking for a more relaxed narration who need that for body awareness should look to Rodney Yee, Rainbeau Mars, Seane Corn, Better Sex w/yoga (upbeat, but still relaxing), Yoga w/Ateeka, Elena Brower, Wai Lana (more Qi Gong which stimulates meridians), Kristen Strohecker, Kristen McGee & Kabbalah Yoga (has no instruction)."

Good program, poor sound quality

"I bought this DVD on a recommendation from a fitness magazine. I was really looking forward to it, but was disappointed with the sound quality. Everytime the instructor put her head down, what she was saying was muffled, like she was speaking out of the bottom of a barrel. I was also very confused by her reference to "Monday's" class, since there is only one class on the DVD. The instruction, what you could hear of it was good, but I would not recommend it based upon the poor sound quality."
