"Ananda Yoga for Emotional Healing delivers on what it says it will. It is an hour-long video that combines hatha yoga poses, breathing exercises, and affirmations, and ends with a guided meditation. Overall, I really enjoyed it. The poses seemed designed for beginners, and Lisa Powers gave step-by-step instructions on how to get into them. The breathing exercises and affirmations were helpful in calming me down. Overall, I came away with a feeling of relaxation, balance, and a little bit of a stretch.A few words of caution, though. First, the postures in this tape were ideal for me, a beginner to yoga, but may not be challenging for those who are more advanced. On the other hand, for those who are simply looking for a way to relax, this video may still be useful. Second, this tape is not a good one for those looking for exercise videos. Finally, the tape stated that you need a cushion, blanket, and strap. You will need the folded blanket, and may or may not need the cushion. The strap is only necessary for one pose, and then only if you have trouble with your flexibility; I didn't use it at all.Overall, a very good video, and one that I would recommend."
