Really Nice

(5 out of 5 stars)

"One thing I can say about this DVD is that it is very relaxing! The setting, the background music, is just great. The first reviewer is sorta right saying that it's "almost amateurish"- it is in the respect that it does not seem like a typical commercialized exercise/yoga dvd. And at first viewing I was a little put off by that, wondering if it would be any good. But I got into it after part of the way through anf actually loved it! And that is just what makes it feel more real and relaxing to me- many of the typical commercialized ones have instructors that have this fakeness, or just a big ego, about them, and often I don't even like the background music. But this one makes you feel like you're in a real yoga class. There are about 5 people doing the yoga including the instructor. I want to mention also that the instructor has a euro accent- which I happen to find a plus because for some reason it's a really relaxing sounding one- but if you don't like accents at all, then maybe this isn't for you. But I can still understand her perfectly fine, and the background music is not too loud or too low, just the right volume.

I don't know why the first reviwer is complaining about the editing- it's fine and the instructor explains the moves perfectly, no confusion for me.

So overall this is a great yoga dvd. The setting and instructor is what can make or break for a good yoga experience. Here is a short summary:

-the intructor spoke in a perfect soothing yoga voice
-moves were clearly explained/demonstrated
-the choice of background music was perfect, including the volume of it
-the ambience in the room was very nice and relaxing
-doesn't get weird or "out there" like some yoga instruction can be

And I'm not one who is easily relaxed, so this is alot coming from me. I so recommend this!

BTW- I havent used this enough yet to see if it actually helps my headaches/migraines. But I'm sure it does somewhat (at least tension headaches) because of how relaxing it is. I'll update this when I do this enough times to have seen if there is any effect on my headaches."
Like a home video

"The almost amateurish production of the DVD initially did not bother me (although it may bother some!). What I found to be most disappointing about this DVD is that the two parts ('basics' and 'headaches') are almost identical. Why bother calling one 'basics' and the other 'headaches' if there ie almost no difference (if there is. it should be explained to us)? The order of the moves are changed ever so slightly and one is 3-4 minutes longer than the other. The producers did not even bother with two takes, just edited one take and placed under two different headings.
The editing overall is not good, the instructor starts explaining one move and then the editor cuts to another move. The sound is also bad, it is difficult to hear the instructor.
Overall, if this was a home-made video a friend of mine had passed on to me, I would have probably appreciated it. But not as a DVD for which I had to pay this amount of money!
