Don't buy this one

"To all the negative comments on the VHS version of this DVD I would like to add that the presenter often makes mistakes in the description of what she is doing. At one point asking the student to move the left foot when she actually moves the right. Other times she pauses and corrects herself during the presentation.The instructions are not complete and are fed piecemeal. This would not be a problem if it was structured but she often leaves critical information till the second time you try a posture (the first time you are supposed to try it is when you are looking directly at her, the second is when they use the 'reverse view' which really should have come first).Additionally no effort is made to take advantage of the special features of a DVD. There is on way to look at only the reverse view, or the 'directly at her' view. Instead her demonstration of a posture is always shown before the reverse view so you can't practice all the postures in one go when you are learning. There is no chance for you to reset your posture between showings of the two versions, thereby ensuring that you are always behind and feeling like an idiot.There is an option to look at the whole program in one go but that is only useful to those that already know what they are doing as it has no commentary.No attempt has been made to provide the student with a structured learning program."
It is not that bad

"The other person who wrote a review saw only the negative, but it isn't that bad really. When you go to a studio, they often first show you face to face the moves (you have to do correction) and then the reverse and that is exactly what Claire Hooton is doing. So why complain? I found the DVD quite helpful, it made me feel like I am with the teacher in one room."
