I feel like this DVD was truly made for beginners. I have arthritis and chronic back pain and following the easy to understand directions has alleviated both conditions. Unlike other programs, this DVD gives the user enough time to get into the next pose without being rushed. At my age I NEED that! The meditation CD that came with the DVD was so relaxing it took away my urge to eat during stressful times and really helped motivate me. I really liked her soothing voice and she's easy to look at too.

I just tried the DVD for the first time after it arrived and I am very glad that I decided to buy it. This is a gentle set of exercises that I can imagine following daily. While it is true, as the author of an earlier review noticed, that the exercises are not integrated in a seamless routine, and there are pauses, I think that is not a disadvantage. You can start at your own pace and then integrate your routine as you become more proficient with each exercise. I appreciate Ms. Andrews positive spirit and gentle tone, and the careful way that she guides us throught the exercises. After going through the set once I was not terribly tired, but I felt a difference, especially around my chest and back, and in general I had a feeling of calmness and tranquility. Before deciding to look at the tape, I had been feeling slow and slightly depressed. This disappeared after I finished the tape, so I count this as a positive result of this program. Thank you to Ms. Andrews and to all who produced this DVD. I will continue using it and I look forward to trying the relaxing CD that accompanies it.

My wife is a physical therapy practitioner and rehab director who is often asked to recommend a good yoga DVD for seniors. She recommends this DVD for seniors who want to lose weight and need a gentle program to do it. The exercises are very therapuetic and attainable, especially if you are overweight and need to start off slow. The DVD begins with standing exercises and follows with exercises where you sit down on a chair. You are encouraged to hold on to the wall for balance if you need to during the standing portion. Seniors will love this because, there is no need to get on the floor. Yoga Chi For EnergyASIN:B000EBFJR4 Beginners Dynamic Yoga for Stress Release and Weight Loss As Seen on TV]] The breathing instruction on this DVD is the best I've ever seen and a great stress reducer. The Mrs recommends this DVD so much I purchased Suzanne Andrews other DVD, Yoga Chi for Energy as that is a little more challenging and perfect for me.

As a yoga instructor myself, I am always on the lookout for quality programs that deliver! The best thing about this DVD is Suzanne's energy -- she is so sincere and encouraging. This is great for anyone who wants to feel better and have fun at the same time!

This DVD/ and meditation CD has helped me bring balance, peace and positive energy into my life on a daily basis. I love the meditation and especially the direction at the end of the DVD about honoring yourself and others! This DVD has touched me and many others, I'm sure.

Finally a video that overweight people can do! All the other yoga video's I've tried are for skinny people. With this DVD I can even sit on a chair and I'm not rushed. Suzanne Andrews gives you time in between to get into the next pose. Something us larger people can appreciate. There is no going down on the floor, unless you want to. I really like the weight loss meditation too, it's a great motivator that helps me stick to my diet. This DVD is very unique. It's about time someone thought of us larger people.

I tried this tape for weight loss and found an added benefit as it has cured my insomnia! Suzanne Andrews has the most soothing voice I have ever heard. I put the meditation CD that is included in the package and I'm asleep by the end of the CD without sleeping pills. I awoke refreshed for the first time in years.

I'm 63 and should still be in the work force, but for a falling accident. I'm doing much better but not enough to get back to work.
