(1 out of 5 stars)
"this is basically a package consisting of two suzanne deason dvds, Yoga Conditioning for Weight Loss and AM PM Yoga for Weight Loss, spread across three dvds. the yoga practices are very fine work, worth four or five stars individually, but i have cut this down to one star because the repackaging may cause people to think the Quick Start and Maintenance dvds are new and different than the AM/PM dvd. also, at this writing, the package costs more than the individual dvds. shame on you, gaiam!
Yoga Conditioning for Weight Loss is a popular gentle beginners' practice, about 45 minutes in length, demonstrating four different levels of practice from beginner to most advanced. It presents a balanced practice of standing poses, backbends, core work, forward bends and twists. suzanne deason's AM PM Yoga for Weight Loss is also a fine dvd, providing a similar kind of practice, in shorter, more focused versions. there is a morning and evening practice and bonus workout, each simple and short (more or less 25 min. each) and well cued, with modifications for beginners in the morning and evening segments. the morning practice focuses on standing poses and backbends. The evening practice focuses on shoulder opening and forward bends. The bonus breathwork workout is more advanced and does not present modifications. it focuses on integrating breath and movement in more challenging standing poses, backbends, and core work.
two dvds included here present the same workouts as the AM/PM dvd. Quick Start Yoga for Weight Loss is the AM portion of the original dvd, and Maintenance Yoga for Weight Loss is the PM portion of the original, plus the dvd's bonus workout on cd. if you want all of these suzanne deason practices on dvd, you can just buy Yoga Conditioning for Weight Loss and AM PM Yoga Conditioning for Weight Loss separately. you will end up with two dvds including all the practices contained here on three dvds and one cd, for less money."
