Movie Reviews

Challenging yoga
Yoni | Israel | 02/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This workout is an athletic approach to yoga, but it's still straight up yoga poses. Every part of the workout is focused on a different area , you start with 15 minutes of sun salutations A & B, then you focus on your legs with some lunges and chair variations then you work your upper body with a series of push up , cobra , and down dog variations and then you work your abs , Adrienne , the instructor makes you work real good & you'll definitely feel your muscles burning and work up sweat.At the end there's some stretches and relaxation. Also there's a seperate savasana segment which is 10 minute approx. and you can do it if the relaxation of the workout wasn't enough.The workout is 60 minutes + the savasana = 70 min.The production and video quality are really good and there's a nice background music. The only thing that disappointed me is that there were no advanced yoga poses like she demonsrates on the cover, but never mind , it was challenging enough."
Really love this yoga tape.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I picked this up on the reccomendation of a fitness board that I frequent. I love power yoga and this one does not disappoint. The moves are not complicated,(don't let the cover picture put you off) but are held for a fair amount of time to give you a good stretch.

I like the instructor's style. Right to the point while being encouraging, without a lot of chatter. The best part of this tape is that the warm up and cool down are separately chaptered, so you can go right into the actual workout without doing endless sun salutations if you dont' want to. I'd highly recommend this tape."
Talk about intense!

"This DVD is not for the timid. I must admit that I was skeptical before I bought it; I thought that people only practiced yoga to meditate and gain flexibility. Wow, was I wrong! This DVD provided me with a workout I will not soon forget. It is a complete body workout and will definitely leave you feeling great. I highly recommend this DVD to any active individual that is looking for a new way to work out!"
Excellent strength oriented yoga session
gorillagorillagorilla | Durham, NC United States | 10/24/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The virtues of this tape are also its limitations - the session focuses on developing individual muscle groups by grouping poses together to generate a lot of heat and lactic acid in those specific areas. This differs from a more traditional yoga philosophy, which tries to even out body work without pumping too much blood and energy into any particular body part. The pace is also fairly fast, with not a lot time to settle into or work the poses. Because this is a strength-oriented session, moreover, the emphasis is on muscle work more than flexibility (not a lot of seated poses). Overall, this is an excellent, strength-oriented athletic yoga session, which should be of great help to athletes at all levels. For experienced yogis, this session can be great if you remember to focus on breathing, your locks and keeping a long, supple spine. The pace and the focus on muscle-building might turn some people off, however."
