2 20 minute yoga zone tv programs. I like the one led by Lisa (on the cover) it's a good overall quick practice to stretch out. the 2nd one would be great too but one leg isn't done on one of the moves! if you know where it is(lunge) then you can pause the dvd or whatver but I found that part irritating and just don't usually do that one unless I feel like doing both practices together(I have too many other dvds to use!)
Yoga Zone Total Body Conditioning Video

"Yoga Zone Total Body Conditioning is a winning video because it challenges and stretches every muscle and the two 20 minute workouts fit perfectly into a tight schedule. The engaging instructors are knowledgeable and non-intimidating. Set against a beautiful Jamaican background, they give perfect instruction, while participants smoothly demonstrate the moves with modifications when necessary. The postures flow beautifully, allowing the viewer to feel energized and balanced. Relaxation techniques end each session and proper breathing is emphasized."
Coulda been a contender

"Good instruction. Beautiful setting. If you do yoga regularly, this is a great, gentle way to start a longer practice. If you're a total beginner, this is good for you. 2 short, sweet segments.But, there's one big flaw -- in the second practice they completely skip a series of lunge poses for one side of the body. The right leg gets a bit of a workout; the left is completely forgotten. That's poor quality control in my book and I was very disappointed. So, if you're looking for something very easy and don't mind stopping and rewinding the tape during the second segment - enjoy. Personally, the Karen Voight "Yoga Sculpt" tape has two more complete practices with superb cuing."
A little too gentel to be called Total Body Conditioning.

"I did this video for the first time yesterday. I feel that this video would be ideal for people who have NEVER done yoga before. I've only been doing it for about 3 months and it was still too gentle for me. On the bright side, I get up very early in the morning to do yoga most days, so it helped me ease into my morning. I agree with another viewer about it being a great stretch after a workout, but early in the morning works well too. There are other tapes that I will reach for before this one, but if I'm low on energy, this is the one I will reach for. On the plus side, I really liked the instructors. They were upbeat and a little comical. I liked that. If you have never done yoga and want to see what it's about, get this video. If you have been doing it for a while, I would recommed Yoga for Weight Loss over Total Body Conditioning."
Perfect for pregnancy!

"Lots of the reviews here complain that this video is too easy and doesn't provide much of a work-out. I too felt the same way, but now that I'm nearly 3 months pregnant, I've changed my mind! For no reason whatsoever, I feel tired all the time and unable to do my usual power yoga workouts, so I started turning back to this tape a few weeks ago as a substitute. It's wonderful for opening you up (the words of the instructor) and it's very calming. The poses are relatively simple so you should be able to follow along well, even if you are a true beginner. For those of you looking for a gentle exercise routine, this one will certainly put you on the path to fitness."
Great for a medium workout when sore...but...

"...there IS that problem with the male instructor skipping (forgetting?) the left leg in a standing posture/sequence in the second 20 min sxn.Otherwise, the video is a great body-loosener and leaves me feeling relaxed afterward. The scenery is lovely and the overall stretching done in the video works for me. I definitely recommend this video instead of YZ's "intro to power yoga" if you are new to yoga. "Total body conditioning" is very approachable to beginners and has a better intro series of postures than the other video, IMHO :)"
