Movie Reviews

Very impressive!

"I don't normally recommend videos to people who are new to yoga. I've worked with several great yoga teachers over three years, and I know that it is important to have the opportunity to get feedback and advice from an experienced professional sometimes, in order to better understand the position and avoid injury. However, if you are getting started and don't currently have time to work with a teacher, I feel comfortable recommending "Yoga for Inflexible People" to you. The positions, and the movements into and out of them, are described very well on this video. Modifications with props such as blankets, blocks, and chairs are demonstrated and explained. The only thing I can think of that would make this DVD better would be a few minutes spent on the philosophy of yoga, and why it is counterproductive to "push" yourself into an uncomfortable position. When I first began yoga, I was, like most of us, inclined to push myself to the point of discomfort and a little bit beyond in a position, because I thought that that was how to "get better" at it. My teachers, however, repeatedly told me to find that place where it's uncomfortable and then ease off a little, and the exercise will actually be more productive, not to mention more pleasant. The importance of observing how your body responds when the pressure to perform is eased a bit cannot be stressed enough. Nothing can take the place of a qualified and experienced yoga instructor, but this DVD is an excellent place to begin until you have time to work with an instructor, and a great supplement to a class to have at home."
A Perfect Gem

"It is very rare that you find a product that exceeds your expectations to such an amazing degree. I read about the DVD in Yoga Journal, which gave it an unbelievable review. I figured they were the professionals and they would know, they even said teachers should buy this DVD as a great reference for how to teach beginning yoga. And boy were they right! It has fantastic detailed instruction so you are safe to explore yoga at your own pace, but it really let's you access parts of the body that I didn't know even existed. And it is so relaxing! People who are looking for some fast paced workout to really sweat to might not be as thrilled, if that is what makes you happy (I got the Yoga for Athletes from the same company and these workouts are more challenging, but equally wonderful). Its message is at points subtle, but profound: observe carefully and you will be amazed! I have tried lots of tapes and this one doesn't have much fluff, but a tremendous amount of depth and worth many times its price. I CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS DVD ENOUGH!"

"If you want to be able to clip your own toenails when you're 85, this is the DVD for you.

I cannot understand the critcism of this DVD; "bland background, boring, expressionless face lacking warmth and personality...." PEOPLE! This is YOGA. It's supposed to teach us to focus inwardly. Those of you who require a pretty background and "personality" need some perky wench(s) in spandex at the beach screaming, "STEP IT OUT, STEP IT OUT!"

In time, I hope to learn all the asanas (poses) so that I won't need to watch it at all, although her voice is so soothing that I'll probably always want to listen, and that's saying a lot. "Personality" can wear very thin when you have to listen to the same thing everyday for months.

This is a perfect DVD for that I'll actually stick to, and I'm now ready to get rid of all those aerobic/dance/yoga tapes stacked in the basement and gathering dust.

I Feel Great!

"I used to be somewhat flexible when I was younger, but not anymore. I have been having back problems lately and my doctor said it would help if I were more flexible. I have been doing this DVD for about a month and I am feeling better in so many ways. I really started to feel the results after a week or so when I began to feel a better range of motion. It's not often that something comes along that feels like it can really change your life."
