3.0 out of 5 stars power yoga workout September 14, 2010
Format:DVD
I bought this as part of the 4 box set from Bob's website. This is a power yoga workout which is an athletic yoga workout based on Ashtanga. This is not a bad workout, its just that there are so many power yoga workouts that are so very similar to this and many have better instruction (for example, Bryan Kest's 3 workout DVD series is a better bargain and has better instructions and a better price). If you already some good power yoga workouts, this workout will not really add anything new to your collection.

The level of this workout is pitched towards the intermediate/advanced exerciser. The demonstration of proper form is pretty minimal so this is best for someone who knows how to properly execute the moves. The workout also has some fairly advanced moves such as binds (moves in which one part of the body holds onto another part of the body or when two parts of the body are intertwined. These are great but you can injure yourself if you do not have good form).

There are three people going through this workout. Like the other workouts in this series, there is a timer counting down how much of the workout is left. The workout starts with basic stretching and then works into the sun salutation series (flat back stretch with palms to ground, downward dog, plank, chatkuranga, upward dog).

The workout coves all the basic power yoga poses: tree, triangle, reversed triangle, warrior 1,2, and 3, half moon, triangle, reversed triangle, chair pose, lunges, wheel, seated twists, bridge.
The first portion of the workout is standing poses, the last workout is seated work.

All in all, this is a solid power yoga workout that will work the entire body. However, there is nothing in this workout that really differentiates it from other power yoga workouts. If you already have a good power yoga dvd (Bryan Kest, Baron Baptiste, Beryl Bender Birch, Kristen McGee, etc) then this workout will not offer anything substantially different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed January 6, 2011
Format:DVD
I was first introduced to doing yoga while I was doing the P90X program. I really enjoyed the yoga workout in P90X, but the biggest problem was that it was a 2 hour long workout. Its hard enough to find 1 hour most of the time to commit to a workout like this for me. So I decided to look for something with the same intensity, but not as long. I researched on a lot of different videos and didnt really find one I thought would be similar. Then I came across this one. I have a lot of respect for bob, but I didnt want a Biggest Loser workout. This is not that. I lucked out , because this was the 1st one I actually purchased. And it was exactly what I was looking for. Just as intense as P90X but in half the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let negative reviews scare you off February 16, 2011
Format:DVD
People, please stick to assessing the merits and quality of the actual yoga instruction itself, rather than subtracting stars merely because "it is similar to others out there." If it's good on its own merits and offers value, i don't give a hoot what else it's similar to. (I am only concerned whether I am getting good value for the DVD in question.) The DVD features a good mix of challenging poses, with reasonable modifications so folks can work their way up, and it is great for those who want a technically-sound yoga workout that will work up a great sweat, without all the weird new age-y leanings present in some other yoga DVDs. I do yoga for fitness, flexibility and stress release, not to embrace new age concepts. And if that's your thing, great, you know where to go to get that type of yoga DVD, but you shouldn't be subtracting stars here because you are a yoga purist who walks into McDonald's (of your own free will) and then expresses outrage at the absence of organic, vegan and gluten-free meal selections. Get real. People who love Bob, appreciate his training philosophy and penchant for getting results - and making yoga accessible to the everyman - get exactly what they want and need from this DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yoga for Yoda November 6, 2010
Format:DVD
If you are new to yoga, this is not a good DVD to start with. You may end up only hurting yourself more than anything else.

This DVD has a run time of 75 minutes, broken down as follows:

- 15 minute workout (more of an Abs workout than a yoga workout)
- 60 minute workout

These are intense workouts, and you may end up cheating a bit unless you are really flexible. Most of the traditional poses are included as well as some more exotic ones. Once you are familiar with yoga terminology you will find Bob's instructions to be adequate. However he does not personally do all of the poses in the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost drowned... March 11, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've never done Yoga before so I went into this with a pretty open mind and a lack of knowledge about what yoga entails. All I can say is this is one of my most enjoyable workouts throughout the week. I only do this DVD once a week, usually on the 6th day of the week (I workout six days a week) and it is a beautiful end to a week of torture on my body. It's no sissy yoga (like I thought yoga was which is why I never tried it). I almost drowned in a pool of my own sweat. Whenever something like that happens, I know it's good...

By KC2012
Format:DVD
So glad I bought this DVD! As a former gym yoga girl, who no longer has a gym membership, this DVD gave me a perfect yoga practice. I love the upbeat music and tempo of the practice. It isn't the typical slow, meditative yoga. Rather you will work up a sweat!

I work out 5-7 days a week (running 5ks and practicing Core Performance Women: Burn Fat and Build Lean Muscle) and this dvd was still able to push me to my limits. There were moments when I thought my legs/arms would collapse because they just couldn't do it anymore. However, I trusted Bob and the one thing I've learned throughout my health journey and that is that my body is stronger and more capable than I realize! I love yoga and I love that someone has finally created a DVD workout that so strongly mirrors the fast-paced yoga classes I used to take at RDV Sportsplex.

Oh, and I'm not sure what all those people are talking about when they say it isn't yoga. He does legit yoga poses throughout- downward/upward facing dog, warrior 1 & 2, triangle, etc. A big plus was also that the timing and pace combined with the intensity of the poses themselves provided a meditative benefit on their own as I was so focused in the present moment the stress of everyday life melted away. :)

ENJOY!
