Moves Fast - Not for the Yoga Novice or the Cardio Light Wei

"I consider myself a moderately advanced cardio exerciser, and I do practice yoga (particularly power yoga) regularly, and I was really working to keep up with this work out! Joy moves very quickly, and although she gives some reminders on form and position, one must have familiarity with yoga poses in order to attempt to keep up. This is definitely fast-flowing yoga - no pose is held for more than a couple of seconds, and you will be working to keep your breath even. If you are looking for a relaxing, mostly stretching yoga practice, this one isn't for you! If you want to get moving and wake yourself up, then you'll love it! If you do all three sections, you will definitely get a moderate cardio workout. Although I wasn't crazy about this workout (I much prefer Bryan Kest, particularly his Power series), I will keep it. It will be terrific when I am short on time but want to get the breath flowing and the blood pumping!"
Best "short" power yoga dvd available

"I have been practicing yoga steadily for slightly over a year. Monday through Friday I have no more than 40 minutes typically available to exericse. Until I began to use this dvd I was not able to find a power yoga dvd that allowed me to go through a challenging series of sun sals, standing/twisting poses, and core work in the limited time I had available. QF power yoga is therefore a most welcome addition to my collection because it does offer in 30 minutes exactly what I needed. The instructor, Joy Kilpatrick, provides precise directions needed to flow through the range of poses in this short practice. As always, it is helpful to watch the dvd at least once before using it.When the the three cleansing breaths that finish the dvd are completed, I feel entirely relaxed in the way that is realized by vigorous flow work. Though not mentioned in the dvd, I naturally go into a five or so minute final resting pose after the dvd is completed, and, in 35-40 minutes, have done my practice for the day. My wife reports that the ten minute segments are also useful as adjuncts to other forms of exercise. For example, she uses the core segment to finish strenth training."
