Movie Reviews

Too Much Information
Ninja_C | 08/30/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Though I did yoga briefly years ago, I've forgotten most of what I learned then from Richard Hittleman. Today, I exercise regularly, but find myself physically inflexible and uncoordinated. I thought yoga would help, and I've been working with DVDs for a while. While I think the instructional material in this DVD is very complete, the routine it teaches is way too hard for me. The flowing workout is hard to keep up with, and some of the combinations are extremely challenging. It's often tough to perform the combinations and watch the screen to see what's next. The pace of the instruction is very brisk. I often find myself rewinding review sections of the presentation. In addition, Natasha Rizopoulos uses the Sanscrit and English names for poses interchangeably, and I have trouble knowing what she's talking about. In general, this video presents more information than a beginner can reasonably absorb quickly, and I don't think it is a good first choice for a beginner."
Depends on how you define "beginner."

"Since this program is marketed as yoga for beginners, I thought it would help me develop a practice of my own. Unfortunately, it didn't work that way: Even though variations are shown, most of the poses here are very challenging if you're starting from Square One (i.e., being completely out of shape and out of practice). Also, the program's WAY to fast-paced to follow if you're out of shape. That said, if you're IN shape, you could get a lot out of this program."
Great Instruction

"If you've never done "power" yoga before this will definetly give you in depth instruction on breathing and posture.
They show decent modifications for beginners with yoga blocks, although I couldn't tell if the blocks were used when you went from downward dog to cobra.
I wish it had been labeled more clearly about the Ashtanga vinyasa style of yoga taught because I was looking for something that also had meditation too.
It is definetly a good buy if you're mostly fit and want a beginners yoga DVD."
