"Okay so I know stretching is an important part of fitness, but it's what I tend to skip the most. With this DVD, I actually look forward to stretching.
What I love about this DVD:
**the clean white set. Ravi and Ana's 2009/2010 workouts are filmed with a very fake looking outdoors set that's distracting, so the clean white set of their earlier workouts is a plus.
**Ravi's soothing voice.
**the combination of breath work and stretching. I know that breathing into a stretch helps you stretch further, but it wasn't until I started doing this DVD that I really made the connection.
**the emphasis on stretching. My hamstrings are very tight because of all the cardio I do and doing this workout really makes them feel good.
**the short, but effective mediations. I like that Ravi explains the meaning of the final "wahay guru" meditation so I don't feel like I'm just saying words that have no meaning. It also helps to have the words appear on the screen so you can remember what to say.
One very minor point is that Ravi doesn't mirror cue, so it could be confusing for some folks.
Maybe I'm more flexible than I give myself credit because I think this DVD is suitable for all fitness levels. I know some of the other reviewers thought it too advanced for beginners.
I highly recommend this workout to anyone wanting a nice yoga and stretching workout.
Quite hooked on this workout!

"I agree with everyone else that this is an awesome workout.I have plenty of yoga DVDs and this one continues to call out to me (as well a their Fat Free Yoga) so I don't get to do many others too often! Remember that this is Kundalini Yoga so in Ultimate Stretch you will be doing active stretching - not many passive poses so you will get your workout in too!
This DVD actually cured my insomnia as well! Not sure how it works but afterwards, I not only feel stretched and nicely worked out but I sleep like a baby at night! I like that with Kundalini Yoga there are no props necessary. Just bring your body and breath and pop in the dvd.
If you want a great stretch and lots more this workout is fo

"I have been trying different types of yoga and not really getting much in the way of results, or feeling any better. Then I came across Ana & Ravi's DVDs and got a few and fell in LOVE! I now own a dozen of them and it's the only yoga I care to do!
If you want a great stretch thats what you will get in this program! Ana leads the way and I love her energy and grace!
Other things I love:
*Ravis soothing voice.
*The way this workout has active poses so you are moving and stretching - so effective!
*The way Ana & Ravi keep it real - I don't feel the holier then though snobbiness I have felt from other yoga instructors.
*The way they tell you what the different exercises do for you.
*The cardio benefits from the breath.
*The way I feel super energized afterwards.
*The way I feel a foot taller. My posture has really improved 100%
*The way my moods have balanced and I don't get thrown off center so much by life.
I very very highly recommend this as well as any of their DVDs you can get your hands on! The way I keep finding myself getting benefits I didn't even know I was looking for!"
