Movie Reviews

Fun seminar format.
uptoolatereadingbooks | Lexington, KY United States | 01/29/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This DVD is unlike most yoga and workout DVDs in that it is really in a yoga seminar format. It's immportant to know that before you buy. I really love Rodney Yee's AM/PM Yoga DVDs also. This one is enjoyable because it is different, and because he does teach a lot about the reasons why we do yoga, the various health benefits etc. Great for beginners, and anyone who needs a boost of inspiration to start working out and getting back into a yoga routine. I saw this on PBS during the phoneathon and used my VCR to record the program, but I will probably purchase this DVD as well, so I can watch it without all the interruptions."
Understanding before doing
Christina Debarros | Florida | 01/13/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A lot of people who want to start doing yoga are not familiar with this ancient art. This video can give a rare insight to what it entails. It can clear misconceptions and wrong advice. An example is in how to correctly do a back bend, from your upper chest and not the waist. This is not a video of a yoga session but an eye opener. Its important to know what one is getting into."
Informative and entertaining

"The Yoga DVD was very helpful and easy to follow and had great information for beginners. It was great that they showed you how to do yoga even if you are sitting or laying down. Very enjoyable."
A PBS Yoga lecture/demonstration program
Lena, LMT | Nassau, NY | 10/07/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"UpTooLateReadingBook's 1/29/09, Christa Debarros 1/13/09 & Gitma's 1/12/09 reviews are great. This is a mostly lecture, but part teaching/demonstration of yoga poses. The reasons why people do it, the misconceptions, the mind/body union, the doing less is more, the giving yourself permission to relax will help everyone (it's not a sin), to do yoga to wake up instead of coffee, to prevent/heal backaches & even prostate issues & more.
There are some stories, but mostly they stick to the why's & basic teaching. It's an hour with a 20 min bonus of more poses.
They have the audience participate either using the floor/mats or sitting in a chair doing mountain, sun salutations, cobbler's, cobra, triangle, half moon, camel and relaxation or savasana and meditation.
Normally I get bored very easily, but because Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman practice being in the now with energy, I wasn't at all, and the program moved at nice fast pace, and was over before I knew it.
This is for people who never tried yoga, or beginners for the most part, but even with the hundred? of yoga dvds I've bought/rented in the past 6 years, and a couple of yoga classes I took, I did learn to put more emphasis in using the upper back in my back bends as well as making sure the legs stay straight & not allow my hips to pull forward to give a fake feeling I'm bending more which puts pressure on the lower back. Also, to always ground with the feet, even in seated poses.
I only wish they spent longer in the teaching of each pose, but that's because I'm so detailed oriented, and probably wished this was three hours long.
