Not for beginners. Better that you know something about Yoga

"I love this DVD! Rodney Yee DVD's from Gaiam have become some of my favorite practices. You really need to know a bit about yoga (like the warrior series) before you do this practice. There are no detailed instructions, so I think it would be disappointing for a beginner.
I loved the flow of this practice. Yes, the sun salutations are a bit fast, but is okay since this warms you up for the floor stretches to follow. He holds you in downward facing dog to rest, but I think the pace is perfect to warm you up quickly. It is a short workout of only 30 min., but perfect for those days when I don't have a lot of time. You will definitely get the flexibility on the floor postures after the warm up.
I use Rodney's "Power Yoga Total Body" which I love too, but it is 1 hour. This practice is very similar, but 1/2 the time. You really can't go wrong on this one for $7 on Amazon.
It is beautifully filmed in Joshua Tree which brings back memories for me of rock climbing in the 70's...
Please see my other review on Amazon of yoga and meditation dvds."
One of my favorites

"I have several Rodney Yee DVDs and this is one of my favorites. I am 52 years old and, although I have always exercised and been active, I have never been very flexible. This one is perfect for warming up your body and challenging it just enough so that you safely increase your flexiblility. I have been doing yoga videos for over 4 years starting with Rodney's AM/PM. I have recommended Rodney's " Back Care Yoga" to my contemporaries as a good starting video and am now recommending this one as the next step. I love his calm voice, the serene locations and (with this one expecially) the relaxing meditative endings."
An excellent release for tension

"I can completely and without reservation, recommend this DVD. I suffer from chronic neck & shoulder tension and when I do not do this program two or three times a week, I am in agony. I am not the most flexible person in the world, but after consistent use, I feel "looser". I am also in love with Rodney's gentle voice and careful instruction to "breathe" in all the right places where I usually find myself holding my breath, as well as "soft eyes" which when I first heard it found myself release my eyes which had crept up my forehead! While I understand a lot of customer's concern that he assumes you know a lot of the positions, if you just watch the program once or twice, at least with this particular DVD, you should be fine."
