"I feel I can review this because I've done this workout on Fit TV several times. When I saw it available for sale on DVD I had to pre-order it. Now I've previewed the clip on Fit TV and aparently this DVD has several workouts included are.
Yoga Fitness Plus Elise Gulan
Lower Body Yoga Tom Morley
Bonus 15 minutes worth of extra workouts with other instructors
Now I've only done the Yoga Fitness Plus workout (my review will focus on that portion of this DVD) and I have to say that I truly enjoyed it. I normaly don't like yoga DVD's but I truly love Elise's cueing. It is amazing. I feel great everytime I do this workout, like all my worries have been stretched and blown away with every deep and relaxing breath. What I also love about this workout are the variations that she gives you with levels. You will feel your body working, your core, your legs, you really have to challenge yourself with this workout. This is by no means an easy workout if you do all the level 2 moves. I wouldn't even consider it a walk in the park at level 1 but that is what I love about this workout I can feel my muscles lengthening, and strengthening at the same time while the deep and slow breathing really helps keep me focused and relaxed. I REALLY hope that Elise comes out with other DVD's. I'd love to see an Intermediate and Advanced Yoga and Ballet. I also highly reccomend her Ballet Conditioning workout. It is a great overal body workout."

"Yoga...I've tried several different DVDs and always felt like I didn't "fit in". I'm a little high strung, and not up on the vocab., chants - well, I just felt akward.
I ordered Yoga Fitness after seeing Elise in the new Shape:20 min. makeover (some moves from this are also in the Shape DVD), then I ordered her ballet DVD...I just think she's the best! Very calming, right on with the cues, and all with a smile =)
On the DVD, there are 3 sections: Yoga Fitness Plus, Lower Body Yoga, Bonus Workouts. I did the Yoga Fitness Plus with Elise as the trainer. It is one challenging workout! Elise shows modifications for Level 1, 2 and for advanced Yogis. She describes the movements while demonstrating in an easy to understand way, throws in vocab for the non-yogi's to pick up on, and gives notice prior to movements in which you may fall...which I did, several times =)BALANCE is a big deal, and not so easy while holding the poses Elise puts you in. You will stretch your muscles in ways never felt before.
I love the bonus workouts! There are 5 "mini workouts" - really only the third & fourth I would consider mini workouts. Side twist, standing bend, back strengthening, sun salutations, tension stretch-neck. The sun salutation segment is impressive, and the standing bend feels awesome!
This is wonderful for those who aren't big yoga fans, however, are intermediate through advanced exercisers. I highly recommend this DVD, the level of intensity this workout reaches will amaze you. It's a total body challenge and I look forward to being able to do the entire work out without falling =) ENJOY!!"
Best Yoga video out there!!

"I have had the pleasure of taking Elise's classes in Santa Monica, and she is my favorite Yogi! She has the greatest spirit and energy, and she really pushes you to do and be your best. I was amazed that she was able to translate that into a DVD format! My job takes me away from Santa Monica for 2 weeks out of the month. I just found this Yoga video by Elise and have been using it daily since it arrived! I'm so sore!! She's such a great instructor and offers the BEST Yoga DVD out there. I have tried 5 different yoga DVDs, and this is the only one that truly gives me the workout I need and crave. Elise is amazing!! If you can't make it out to LA for one of her classes (which are totally YO-GAsmic!), this is the next best thing. It will give you the true feeling of being in a studio. You can get a real sense of her spirit. Her 20-minute circuit video is GREAT, too! I've been using that in addition to this Yoga DVD on days when I have a little extra time. ELISE IS THE BEST!!"
