Redundant and exhausting!

"When I think about a yoga routine, and what that means to me, this is definitely NOT it! First, a yoga routine should be smooth and relaxing, even as it challenges you. This was a jerky, repetitive, boring and stressful workout. The trainer doesn't show the correct breathing technique, and has this annoying, nasal Valley-Girl way of talking that grated on my nerves. It was basically the same difficult moves over and over, then as soon as I began to just repeat the same thing I'd done fifty times before again--surprise!--she'd change to a different position, so then I'd have to whip my head up, back up the DVD, and watch while they did the move, then play it back again so I could do it right. Even the two girls exercising on the DVD looked bored, I know I was. She used the down-dog position as a "resting" position, one that I find very difficult, so that I was straining away and she says "like, remember, this is your relaxation position, so you should, like, ENJOY it".
You should, like, save your money and get a different yoga video."

"I actually think this was a very challenging workout and really pushes you in a good way. Even though it's titled as yoga basics - you will get a very challenging and effective workout. I think the instructor is cheery but not in an obnoxious way - she gives pretty decent guidance and does remind you to breathe. This DVD is not something I would recommend for beginners because you do need to have a certain level of good flexibility. I am familiar with yoga so it works great for me."
Worst yoga workout ive ever done
