"I have a lot of Gaiam videos and this is the only one that I have been disappointed in. This video is not for beginners. I consider myself to be an advanced beginner and I had a hard time with this one. Most beginners could not do half of what she does. She only shows modifications at the end which doesn't do much good. She does the half moon, warrior 3 and another balancing pose that I am sorry but I do not know the name of. (Looks like a tea pot pouring tea). They aren't advanced poses, but they aren't real easy either. She also moves into them rather quickly, I couldn't keep up. I kept up better with Rodney Yees Power Yoga (not for beginners)! Even the stretches she does in the end are impossible for someone who is not extremely flexible. Better know some modifications to do this one. I was really frustated, almost gave up. The reason I gave it a two and not a one is because I think it would be great for someone more advanced(but it says for beginners). As always with Gaiam, the scenery is beautiful. I may pull it out again in a year or so."

"Though I agree with other reviewers that this DVD seemed more "advanced" or "intermediate" and also that the voiceover is off at times from the action, I really LOVE this DVD. I really feel like it works--I've noticed a big difference in the muscles in my legs after using this program regularly. Also, the program is a nice length. It also stretches my capacities just enough to be challenging, but not so much that I can't do it. I really recommend this DVD to anyone who is looking for a yoga program that pushes them a little harder and is more of a "workout" than some others. I also recommend it to people who have some practice with yoga already, not people who are just starting out."
Great Routine for when you don't have a full hour

"I've been using this tape on VHS for years and finally had to upgrade to the DVD. I'd say it's on the advanced side of the Beginner's category, which was great because it kept me challenged at first and is something I still keep in the rotation. It should be noted, however, that it's mostly flowing yoga (often referred to now as Power Yoga), so compared to other Beginner's titles, this may be more challenging and will definitely get your heart rate up.
I also like that it's only about 30 minutes, so I can almost always fit it in."

"Fantastic quick moving, flowing practice! This program got my body heat up and my heart rate up. I felt GREAT afterwards. I felt like I worked my entire body, but yet felt limber at the same time.
I would agree with other reviewers that this is probably not a program for beginners. I would recommend this program to people who:
1. like a fast moving, flowing workout
2. are looking for a more physical practice
3. have some experience with yoga (intermediate beginner, or intermediate)
4. are fairly flexible
I also would agree with other reviewers that the audio dubbing is off some, but this happens in a lot of yoga DVDs and it doesn't bother me too much. If that is something that bothers you - the dubbing not always being EXACTLY on queue with the movement - you may get annoyed by this DVD. But I find that you can either watch the screen and ignore the dubbing (and only move when she moves), OR listen to the dubbing and just not watch it."
