Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a non-athlete (and overweight) all my life, but came to yoga with spritual needs about five months ago. I am not a spring chicken either, so you can imagine how out-of-shape I was... I thought I should start with Dummies series. I bought them separately, but now I see them as a 2-pack and I think this should be great for somebody who really want to start from the beginning. Now I own several yoga DVD's and go to yoga classes regularly, but I still consider Sara Ivanhoe one of the greatest instructors. She has a non-judgemental, yet encouraging and thorough way to introduce you to the world of yoga. Too often in classes, instructors throw names of poses at you (sometimes in sanskrit) without giving you enough explanations. I still go back to these DVD's once in a while and understand the explanation even more each time! Overall I think the DVD's deliver what they claim."
I Love It

"I Love this DVD set. Sarah Ivanhoe is one of the best video instructors I've ever had. She goes slow enough for everybody to get it, but not too slow. She's very encouraging throughout it all. I'm not athletic at all and I am certainly not flexible, but she makes it fun and reassure me that it's ok. The Dummies tips and icons let you learn a bit about yoga and it's just a lot of fun. I would recommend this to anyone, but especially those of us that aren't very athletic or flexible."
A good introduction to yoga for beginners.

(5 out of 5 stars)

"These two DVDs comprise a good introduction to yoga for beginners. The instructor works slowly through the postures, explaining the techniques and benefits. Each DVD contains twelve postures. The first DVD includes basic postures, while the second DVD contains more advanced postures and also a 15-minute primer on meditation.

I found it quaint that the instructor finds the lunge position more challenging than the tree position (balancing on one foot with the other foot against your thigh). I am not sure if this stems from misunderstanding of the difficulty of the postures or it may be just a glitch in editing, but by and large, these DVDs are certainly worth their price. Recommended for beginners with no prior knowledge of yoga.

"At this point I've done this yoga routine 3 times, and I can I already feel the physical and mental benefits of the practice. This is a very good DVD for someone like me who'd never done it before."
