Not for beginners

"As an intermediate student of yoga, I found the workouts on this DVD were extremely fast. A good workout for someone pressed for time. The lower body workout was mostly a standard yoga set that most beginning students learn, sun salutations etc. The other two sets had movements and positions that I've never seen before. I wouldn't recommend this to a beginner. The DVD only explains the basic positions with still pictures. The instructors don't really explain the poses well enough for a beginner. For an intermediate yoga student pressed for time, this makes an adequate DVD to have in your collection."
Excellent Workout - but not for Beginners

"My wife and I bought this to round out our normal impact aerobic activities and found this workout to be effective and challenging. The problem with the workout was the movements went by to fast and it took a few weeks of "memorization" to be able to conduct the moves as they appeared on the television.This workout is more then just stretching. As you are practicing yoga - you can feel your muscles work and you actually begin to sweat! I would recommend incorporating a yoga workout into a normal impact aerobic/Tae Bo workout.Gone are the days when we think of yoga as only something so mystical. Yoga is a healthy alternative to relaxation exercises and to impact exercises."
Not for beginners!

"I've been doing yoga for a few months now and have really enjoyed it. This series did not seem like it was for beginners at all. It moved way too fast for me and did not give me enough time to fully stretch into the parts I needed work on the most! The abs section is ok (you feel the burn) but not long enough.. I say rent it from Blockbuster 1st and see if you like it! I've really enjoyed Crunch's yoga video and Kathy Smith too.. they're easy to follow and a great workout!"
Good even for beginners

"I've read the reviews for this DVD, and while it's true that some of the moves are difficult for beginners, I think it challenges begginning students of yoga with lots of interesting and quick moves. Quick moves is all Rodney Yee style, as evidence by some of this other DVD/videos. While it may take the beginner a while to be able to keep up and do ALL the workouts, it tends to have a lifespan that is longer than most very basic yoga workouts that get boring after two or three viewings."
