Reviewed on 10/20/2009...
This is just my opinion and all, but it's exactly what I've been looking for. The style of yoga, the length of the poses, the instructor's cool calmness, not having to ignore spiritual references and such (I am a Christian). Just call me pleased!

Relaxing, yet fitness oriented yoga session for adv. beginne
Lena, LMT | Nassau, NY | 03/20/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Menu Options:
Warm Up, Lower Body, Upper Body, Core Conditioning, Stretch & Flexibiity, Complete 50 min makeover, Special Extras (extra 10 min Buns burner, trailers).

Alanna Zable is alone in a room w/ white wall w/painted green swoosh & tree, large vases, towels in baskets & blocks to give you something to look at. The music is played at a very low volume, but it's nice, not too boring. Alanna speaks real time (no voice over) with only fitness/anatomical terms & the focus of this dvd is fitness w/flexibility. She gives good basic tutorial info, but to keep it going, she is limited in what she can say so this should not be a first yoga dvd for that reason. Alanna has a good personality & good body awareness from what I sense. This pace/work done is hard since it does all upper at once & all lower at once so your muscles will not get a break. This is best for those who have been working out regularly or some decent muscle strength.

Only listed SOME Poses in each section:
Warm-up: 10 min
sun salutations, etc.
Lower Body: 15 min
chair, twist chair, sun salutations, warrior 1, 2, 3, reverse warrior, side angle, standing split, tree (or leg straight out fwd), (poses are held a long time
Upper Body: 11 min
some arm circles, plank, side plank, 1 armed down dog, crow, shoulder stretch, etc.
Core Conditioning: 9 min
table w/knee to nose, camel, crunches, bridge, 1 legged bridge, wheel
boat, pilates bicycle,
Stretch & Flexibility: 7 min
plow, shoulder stand, reclined straight leg to face stretch, reclined spinal twist knees to side, reclined knees to chest

Here's the breakdown of the Buns to give you an idea of how Alanna does poses/moves & then moves on:

Extra: Burns Burner 10 min:
chair on toes, 1 legged chair, standing fwd bend, plank, cobra, down dog, down dog w/lifting straight leg up/down & pulsing straight leg, warrior 1, warrior 2, wide legged fwd bend, wide legged fwd bend w1 lifted straight leg, standing frog (wide legged squats & one foot on toes only), squat w/stretching shoulder, lunge, plank, cobra, down dog, table (hands/knees) w/lifted straight leg & pulsing leg, child's, pigeon"
Very well made DVD, better if you have a yoga background

"This DVD is great. Alanna is very professional, nice to watch without being annoying, and has wonderful form and strength. She's also as flexible and limber as a piece of cooked spaghetti!

The studio is visually appealing, with stacked yoga blocks, a tree, yoga mats, some plants, etc. I was calmed just looking at it. The production quality is good. There are five 10 minute routines.

However, this is NOT for uncoordinated people or beginners to the exercise/yoga lifestyle. There is one part in particular that had my jaw dropping open. In the warrior pose (warrior 2, I think?) where you are standing on one leg and have the other behind you in the air lifted (in arabesque position for you ballet dancers) with your arms out, she bends her leg and straightens it repeatedly. I for one cannot do this. It takes a LOT of leg strength and very disciplined coordination, which I don't have yet. Also, there are several exercises that are very twisty, pretzel like. It moves at a flowing, quick pace with not much time to relax between transistions. This DVD is wonderful, but not for me. Hopefully I can work my way up to it! For those of you seasoned in yoga that are pretty flexible, I think you will really like it!"
Amazing Experience
