Movie Reviews

Be great if there were no caterwalling in the background
Juincy | MD. | 03/24/2005
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I would have loved this except the music --caterwalling I'd call it--in the background kept me from concentrating. It made it very hard to meditate--I'm just a beginner. Everytime I started to get into it, the wailing in the bacground would get louder and knock me back to earth. Ended up feeling annoyed and frustrated instead of calm and good.."
Mediocre meditation DVD
Sunny Dee | The Country Club Farm | 06/30/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Thankfully, I decided to borrow this from the library first instead of purchasing it. The idea of an AM/PM Meditation DVD is great, but the execution of it in this production left a lot to be desired.

I found the mini-stretching exercises led by Rodney Yee to be too brief with abrupt transitions from one movement to the next. I also found his movements (as well as his sitting posture and hand mudras) too exacting and stiff for my taste. It made sense when I found out that he has a background in ballet - explains a lot I think. I also found his meditation narrative to be very distracting and a bit too "leading" - almost like he is trying to tell you what to think about at that exact moment etc, even though, as far as I understood, this was not supposed to be a guided imagery type of meditation. There is value to having moments of just silence in the morning. And there was very little of that.

I liked the PM meditation portion a bit better. But again, the yoga transition into the meditation was very brief. Not much else to say about the PM part, except that she leads you through a very basic session of mindfulness meditation. It's an okay start for beginners, but doesn't go much deeper than that. There are many other outstanding sources of guided mindfulness meditation CDs, like those by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn (father of mindfulness meditation himself).

All in all, I would say that I am able to get more of the calming/stress-relieving effect that I was looking for from my AM/PM Stretch DVD than I was from this video... Definitely check out the AM/PM Stretch video if you are interested in incorporating more yoga into your morning/evening routines as well. (The many positive reviews for the stretch video speaks for itself).

Good luck!
