Great content, but boring pace & little stiff

"Check out her other DVD: Yoga for Absolute Beginners.
Her DVD contains immense information about yoga, spirituality, getting in touch with your body & spirit & proper breathing in other menu options & in the beginning of the 4 25-min workouts.
She has a great voice, very patient, she tells you in the begining of each pose the proper form, what to watch out for to avoid injury, some modifcations & when to breathe, but during the poses thre's a lot of silence & some moving postures, you don't know if she moved or not. I wish she would also tell you benefits during, but does not.
The way she teaches is like a classroom, each pose is like a new lesson, no fluidity. The music is very soft, barely hear it though it's beautiful. What bothered me pesonally is that they are the same songs from a favotire mind/body workout "Tantric Toning."
This is great for people who like precise instruction & silence during each pose.

"This is not beginner yoga by any means, but if you are in shape and have some experience with yoga, you can learn a lot more. When I look at the screen it looks easy and flowing, but it's really challenging stuff--in a good way. This gal knows what she is doing and explains it in a one on one way. It's kind of like Yogi Marlon is right there in my living room. The DVd's not flashy, but it feels like I AM getting stronger every day."

"This video has a very homemade, low budget feel to it. However, the content is very good. All of the workouts on this video are a good for beginners as well as those more advanced. Some of the more advanced moves can be hard on an inexperienced body. I had to take it easy at first to avoid injury. These workouts are some of my favorite (and I own a whole bunch), and I recommend them to anyone insterested in practicing yoga."
