Editorial Reviews

If you eat when you are stressed, this DVD is for you! After just one session, you will experience immediate stress release and be on your way to the fit mind/body you desire. The DVD is suitable for both beginners and seniors by going at a gentle pace while giving ample time to get into the next pose. Highly recommended by medical professionals, this 40 minute DVD begins with 14 minutes of modified standing yoga poses combined with energy enhancing breathing exercises that will help you tone and rejuvenate your entire mind, body and spirit. The second part incorporates 14 minutes of seated yoga poses to help alleviate all-over body aches and pains caused by muscle tension. Then an original 10 minute weight loss meditation follows, which includes an awesome guided visualization on a breathtaking beach to beautiful award-winning music that will lift your spirits to amazing heights! This unique therapeutic beginner's yoga program is created by Suzanne Andrews, a licensed rehab specialist, certified yoga instructor, and star of PBS TV's ''Functional Fitness''. Suzanne Andrews is a licensed Occupational Therapy Practitioner, and the Health and Fitness Expert on DBCC PBS TV. Her other certifications include Yoga, Personal Training, Water Exercise and she also holds a diploma in Fitness and nutrition. She specializes in helping people retain and regain function through functional exercises. Her sincere enthusiasm and passion for helping others comes from 30 years of experience. Suzanne understands that not everyone can or even wants to do pretzel poses and designed this DVD to be suitable for all ages and all levels of expertise. This DVD also includes a bonus meditation audio CD for additional stress release and weight loss motivation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start moving and start feeling better! March 21, 2012
Verified Purchase
I had been looking for a yoga DVD to practice at home. Given that I am older and overweight I have had difficulty finding one that works for me. I tried beginning and introductory yoga DVDs and even tried one intended for the plus sized. These contained poses that were too advanced or involved getting up and down off the floor.

Beginners Dynamic YOGA for STRESS RELEASE and WEIGHT LOSS provides exactly what I need. I get the benefits of yoga without the pain of attempting to contort my body into seemingly exotic poses. Called yoga therapy it modifies traditional yoga poses into moves that can be completed by those whose mobility is compromised by age, pain, or weight. The poses are simple enough to practice every day.

The 40 minute DVD is easy to follow. I suffer from back pain so I especially liked the 14 minutes of sitting exercises used to alleviate back and neck pain. With just a few days of practice I feel less pain. After being sedentary for so long this DVD has me feeling rejuvenated. I expect to be losing weight in no time. Coupled with the meditation DVD included this package delivers what it promises.

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy to do November 17, 2012
Verified Purchase
I liked this DVD. It's simple and it's easy to follow. It's not hard on the body at all. The instructor is upbeat and easy to follow.

The issues I had with the DVD is that sometimes the number of reps for a movement is not clear so you end up coming out to the pose to soon or staying in it too long. Some of the poses kept your eyes off of the TV so you didn't know if she had changed something. I found that to be irritating. Also, there is a more advanced movement for a few of the poses but they move so fast that you can't seem to keep pace unless your not new to yoga. That kind of defeated the entire purpose of the DVD doesn't it?

All in all it was a pleasant DVD. I have tried a couple of others from other fitness instructors, the popular ones and it was a nightmare to follow. If you want slow, easy, and not too challenging this one will do ya!

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing! August 1, 2012
This wonderful DVD has changed my life! I bought it years ago before this new and improved version came out. I loved the old one but the new one has an even better menu with more poses and you don't have to get down on the floor. It was a perfect fit for because I needed clear directions with yoga exercises that I could really do! I also got really good results with Suzanne Andrews Pain Free Back and Neck DVD as I have a bad back and am overweight and the other DVD's were too hard and complicated. With this special DVD I feel relaxed and sleep better at night. Suzanne Andrews is the best teacher she knows how to explain what to do and when to do it at a easy pace . I think it's special because I have tried others and nothing compares to this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Helped Me Sleep! October 17, 2012
By Albert
Length: 1:27 Mins
i purchased the original one a few years back and was pleased to see a new dvd with the option of an express workout on the new menu where you can go right to the beginning of the workout and it has a very relaxing meditation cd that helps me sleep better than I have in years! It's hard to fall asleep and stay asleep but this sure does help. Suzanne Andrews has a very soothing meditation voice on the CD. There's also more poses in this one and good for the beginner, but if you want a really tough yoga workout, this DVD is not hard, no exercises where you have to sit on the ground and no pretzel poses either. Great for stretching, getting rid of stress and motivation for losing weight. Here's a quick you tube video about the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great way to start ! February 5, 2013

I really like that she takes it slow
so you can learn how to do the poses properly .
I have followed her teaching for 2 weeks now.
A few days ago I made a chart listing all the poses she has demonstrated...
I have purchased some tranquil music from Itunes.
Now , I just flow from one pose to the other without needing to watch her CD

My sister & I are in our early 70's & have never done yoga before, but are active ranch gals. At our age, we are losing some strength, mobility & flexability. We loved this DVD as it has basic, sound moves that are well demonstrated. Ms. Andrews does a very good job & we feel great after following her yoga routines.

It feels good to actually be able to do the yoga positions shown on this video. The breathing is particularly helpful and I think I"m off to a good start.
