I have tried all three of these DVDs separately; providing the three of these DVDs together in a set offers an amazing value. I particularly like the two Barbara Benagh DVDs, but there is a wealth of material included here, all of which might be applicable, depending on your level. I have provided brief impressions of each individual DVD below, but for more information, follow the link to the individual product for my full review.

Yoga for Stress Relief
This DVD is my favorite of the three, and one I still use quite often. The practices are broken down into four different areas of concern: 1) Beginning and Ending Your Day, 2) Neck, Shoulder, and Back Issues, 3) Easing Your Mind, and 4) Stomach and Digestion Issues. All of the routines are quite relaxing and largely restorative. They range in length from 15 to 60 minutes and should be doable to most levels of practitioners. Some props are necessary, including at least one blanket on hand (preferably 2-3), a strap, and a bolster/firm pillow.

AM/PM Yoga for Beginners
This is another wonderful DVD from instructor Barbara Benagh. Here the focus is on routines intended for either the a.m. or the p.m., but I've been known to mix-n-match the practices at any time of the day. Again, the length of the practices varies (from 15-45 minutes), and the same props as described above would be helpful here. A few of the routines, such as "Gentle Wake Up" and "Good Nights Sleep," are performed entirely on the floor; one of my favorites is "Get Up and Go," which is a short practice (15 minutes) that offers a wonderful series of upper back openers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVDs February 7, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This set of DVDs covers everything you need - if you are starting out and need extra work, to targeting issues to having workouts to wake up and go to sleep to.

I borrowed one of the DVDs for a couple of weeks from a friend who has been practicing a few years and who started out with the one to increase flexibility. (She also has the other DVDs and uses them all the time) This DVD is very good to get you started if you have not done yoga or are early in your yoga practice, really helped me get a basis with assistance and then move along.

Stress Relief is usuable by pretty much anyone with routines designed to help stress issues, digestion, hips, neck and so on. The relaxtion routines are easy to do and very effective. Though Stress relief has some routines for morning and evening, AM/PM has a wide variety of routines for the morning and evening.

I was able to mix and match as I worked through things and there is a ton of variety. Will be able to use this for a long, long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great All In One Purchase August 18, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After four months of using this Box Set, I am extremely pleased with the purchase as someone new to yoga.

The Box Set consists of 3 DVDs - Essential Youga For Inflexible People, Yoga For Stress Relief and AM PM Yoga. Needless to say there is a lot of variety between the videos and plenty to work with.

The Inflexible title has routines that range from 5 to 10 minutes to up to around an hour or so (for use as you get better/stronger) and includes ways of making things earlier as you learn.

The Stress Relief has a TON of poses and workouts to help you target problem areas, such as headaches, and is very good and effective.

The AM PM focuses more on things to help you energize and relax. The teachers provide enough verbal cues and reminders on positioning and breathing so that I feel that I am really learning how to do things properly at a good pace.

Just love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars INFLEXIBLE, BEGINNER AND OUT OF SHAPE August 14, 2011
By M
I wanted this 3 disc beginner yoga as one of my birthday gifts. So, I received this one and Jillian Michaels No more trouble zones, to get me started on a "NEW" me. I am out of shape and inflexible, so doing the beginner yoga is still too advanced for me. I prefer doing the sun salute and the yoga for neck and back pain. I do this 7 days a week, so far this is my 2nd week in doing the sun salute (inflexible people dvd) and neck, shoulders and back pain (yoga for stress relief dvd). I feel great and my body yearns for more. I am excited to do these everyday (7 days a week, 1 hour each day). I am 38 y/o female, 214 lbs, 5'1", I have large breasts which tends to add to any pain or stress I feel. I do whatever my body can do and I do a little more each day. Not pushing my body but gradually do a little more each day.

I do modify a few poses because I am just not that flexible yet nor do I have upper body strength. Take the poses at your own pace. Just keep working at it. I feel a lot better mentally and physically and it's only been 2 weeks. That's enough motivation for me to keep going. I do my yoga dvd 1st and then I do 1 to 2 circuits from Jillian Michael's dvd "No more trouble zones". I feel really gooooood right now. If you thinking about, do it, even if it's just for 1 minute, just do it.
At this point any exercises I can't do, I modify it, in the way that's easier for me, then within 2 to 3 days I am actually doing it gradually. Did I tell you, I feel really good!!
