"Please be aware that this set does not contain any new Yoga Zone DVD's! It consists of the previously issued Yoga Basic, Yoga Sculpting and Fat Burning. I wish Amazon had indicated this on their website. Fortunately I could cancel my order in time.
If I could give Amazon a rating on this item it would just be 1 star, although in general they are great. But this time I had to find the content information elsewhere.
The individual items I rate at 5 stars, as Yoga Zone is really a great program. I use it almost everyday to do my yoga."
A superb guided step-by-step series

"Yoga Zone Essentials is a three-DVD set for beginning to intermediate level Yoga practitioners. Filmed on location in Jamaica, Yoga Zone Essentials provides an atmosphere of tranquility as two senior instructors guide the viewer through workouts for health and fitness. One instructor performs the poses, while the other coaches proper form. Each program offers 40 minutes, which can be followed as one workout or two separate 20 minute workouts, and individual chapters can be mixed and matched. Disc 1, Yoga Basics, teaches the viewer about basic Yoga postures and body alignment, and is useful both as an introduction and a refresher course for those who have already experienced Yoga. Disc 2, Yoga Sculpting, is separated into upper-body and lower-body workouts designed for muscle tone and body sculpting. Disc 3, Fat Burning, features Yoga poses that boost one's metabolism and promote weight loss. All three are useful for improving flexibility and personal health, and are easy to follow, with a music-only option once one is familiar with the instructors' guidance. A superb guided step-by-step series and a quality supplement any Yoga practitioners DVD library.
Enjoyable, and do-able, yet challenging

"I bought this 3-DVD set for myself, and chose the set for it's range of workouts - basic, fat burning, and body sculpting. I've tried all of the workouts at least once. My favorite continues to be the second workout on the basic DVD, as this one is easy to pick up after I haven't practiced in a while (which happens far too often!). My husband also enjoys this workout and we are trying to make it a more regular part of our exercise routine. The other two DVDs are also enjoyable, but they are far more challenging and I find I rarely feel up to the challenge.
If you are very new to yoga, it may be a while before you are ready for the more challenging fat burning and body sculpting workouts. Overall the set is very good, but you might consider buying separate DVDs that better fit your individual needs and ability.
