"White waves wrote a great review in 9/22/2005.
The scenery is beautiful, Susan's words are inspirational & on cue, but the pace of speaking is slow. This workout seems to be geared to absolute beginners with limited flexibility & endurance. There are a lot of short breaks between poses. There is heavy use of blocks & straps & many poses are modified. If you have decent flexibilty, just don't use these props.
The AM starts with 5 min of breathing, then child's pose, lunges, standing fwd bend, chair pose w/breathing, mountain pose, modified standing thigh stretch, standing wide legged torso side stretches, triangle, side angle, standing wide legged stretch. Then sitting torso twist, butterfly (no going down), modified boat. Laying down, a simple sustained ab crunch, knee to chest stretch, knee to side spinal twist, bridge pose. Laying on stomach, raising torso on ground with hans still on ground. Then downward dog & sitting in meditation.
PM: Begins with 5 min of scenery & mountain pose with breathing. Using towel, simple shoulder stretch, child's pose, downward dog, lunges, standing wide legged stretch, downward dog, child's pose, staff pose, modified sitting 1 legged fwd bend, sitting wide legged simple torso stretches, sitting 1 leg out to side torso side stretch. Laying down 1 straight leg to sky stretch, straight legs in air (very modified plow), knees to chest, knee to side spinal twist & ends in meditation.
The Bonus 20 min breathwork is a more normal pace, beginners' workout with out props & full poses. Twisted seated position, standing fwd bend, mountain, modified standing 1 legged pose, warrior 1, standing stretch for thighs, wide legged standing fwd bend. Then half kneeling torso side stretch, then lying down: locust, bow & bridge, 1 leg in air stretch & to the side. Then ab work while on elbows & legs raised in various degrees. Then seated twisted sage pose, sitting 1 straight leg stretch, seated wide legged sterch & ends with seated 2 min meditation.
The 5 min trailer is still at gaiam com but not sure how much longer."
Not my first choice for the morning

"This DVD gives two good structured workouts. They are propped but can be done without if you have some experience. I would say this is more intermediate than beginner as the queueing is somewhat basic and may be too quick of you are very new to yoga. I do find that I need a good warm up before I can do the AM workout as opposed to the AM section of the AM/PM yoga for beginners DVD. Still a good additional option."
Good for beginners

"I really like this product. I've had it for almost 2 years. I like it because it is easily understood, safe and the poses are good for a beginner while still being challening. I like the length of the sessions to as they are easy to fit into a busy day. I use the PM yoga routine religiously after my runs at night to stretch muscles stressed from running, to relieve stress, and maintain flexibility. In fact, I bought this product to help me manage work stress and I highly recommend it for that alone."
