"I was not sure how I would like this DVD because I thought it would infuse hip hop and distract me from the connection that I receive from practicing yoga. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised. I was able to push my practice to a higher level, which is to incorporate it in all aspects of my life. I recommend it for beginners and the experienced."

"My girlfriend but this for us and it's been fun to do something like this together. I was thinking it might have been too feminine until I tried it but it sure helped me get the knots out of my shoulders. Very easy"

"My son just bought me this and I'm having a good time of it so far. I used to think to do yoga meant you had to chant now I know that it's a great way to excercise and stay relaxed. It's not too hard on my joints either. I like it."
Hatha Yoga with Contemporary Style

"Robin Downe demystifies yoga for beginners and presents a warm comforting relaxation practice with caring instruction and beautiful music. Robin practices with two actresses, a magazine editor and a student of three years.
The initial breathing session is slightly extended so you can relax fully into the routine. Then Robin's pleasant voice leads you through a series of postures that are held for enough time to make them effective. I love the slower pacing and the detailed cueing she gives to make sure you are doing the postures perfectly. I have rarely felt so taken care of while doing yoga. It was truly comforting.
Breathing, balancing, focusing and toning are the themes within a very emotionally satisfying guided practice. The relaxation session at the end is perfect as is the mini-meditation section.
Toe stretches and lots of arm and neck stretches are also included. Downward dog, mountain pose and a few other basic poses are taught.
A beyond excellent start for beginners and a relaxing escape for intermediate students. After doing this workout I truly look forward to continuing the Yoga Flava series. This may be one of the most relaxing yoga DVDs on the market.
Robin's beautiful spirit makes the practice very healing and I love her teaching style.
