"Karen Voight always creates amazing workouts and this DVD is no exception. This DVD has two intermediate workouts. The set is simple with wood floors and copper colored mats.
In the first "Yoga Strength" routine, she masterfully leads you through a series of flowing poses designed to test your strength and balance. You may need a yoga block but I found you could do all the exercises without one.
The exercises in the first section include: Child's Pose, Downward Facing Dog, Plank (you lower to this from downward facing dog and then go straight down to the floor - tests your upper body strength), Half Cobra, Sun Salutations, Chair Pose, Warrior I, Upward Facing Dog, Triangle Pose, Warrior II and Boat Pose. You hold the poses for just enough time to break out into a sweat without hardly moving.
In the second "Yoga Stretch" routine, Karen Voight brings a sense of calm and clarity to your day. In this section you lengthen your muscles and stretch out the spine. This workout is done on a Persian carpet and the music is especially calming. Karen takes your body through a full range of stretches that feel nurturing and healing.
I enjoyed doing both the workouts in one day but you can do them on alternating days if you wish.

Good, but a duplicate

"These are quite good yoga routines, but they are the same two that appear on the "Slim Physique" (aka "Sleek Physique") DVD. That title also has a series of aerobic and strength workouts and has been one of my favorites for over five years. If you can find it, I recommend getting that DVD - more workout for your dollar!
