Harder than it Looks

"I tried this DVD with the idea that as a weight lifter and gymrat, that this would be a way to get flexible and enjoy the area of New Mexico that I love...boy was it a is not just a stretch video and my abdominals really got a workout.I did like the stretches, although West seemed to move more like a dancer and that was abit too feminine for me, but the floor work, the what she called "Marine Floats",my center worked hard and it was tough...even as she spoke so gently, the movement was hard work...I told my friends about the abdominal work and we all did it together and laughed at the idea that the soft voice could be doing such hard things...
The lovely shots of Santa Fe were special to me as I used to live around there and recognized the area. There are scenes that almost steal the show from West."
Love it!

"I do the Santa Fe Stretch almost every day. This is the perfect exercise routine for somebody relatively new to yoga, who wants to get into it, and build up their strength and flexibility. The series starts with a simple warm-up and ends with deep stretches and yoga positions. At first there was no way I could do it all, but it didn't put me off. I felt encouraged and did what I could, and then built up until I could do all three series comfortably. In fact, I have introduced several friends and relatives and given copies of The Santa Fe Stretch to people from ages 17-75, and it is appropriate for all. The exercises and positions are peaceful, and beautifully paced. I feel more in harmony, both mentally and physically from doing the Santa Fe Stretch."

"This beautifully filmed exercise video is so unique. I love the fluid movements and the location shoots. The idea of being in a space so lovely as you workout is relaxing, soothing and inspiring. Good job., lets hope we see more of this type of exercise video."

"This was a very unique and beautiful exercise video. As someone that loves classical dance and yet can not take classes as I have children, this workout made me feel like I could achieve a dancers body. I also loved the quietness of the music, there was not the usual style of music that sounds like you are in a gym, but instead the music lead the workout with its tempo.
Also, I loved the abdominals...they were hard, but more stabilizing, instead of grinding. Like dance, each new exercise seems to be easy, but was not."
