Editorial Reviews

1. Energize - Beginner Level
Feel the power. Be the power. Unlock the strengthening, slimming, detoxifying and reenergizing of Power Yoga. Bryant Kest leads you in vigorous workout based on the robust Ashtanga style of yoga.

"If you're doing the best you can, you're doing this class perfectly," Kest explains. After instructions on proper breathing, the session begins, taking you and an on-screen class through a variety of flowing, dynamic exercises (salutation, lungs, balancing, spinal stretches and more) augmented by Kest's demonstrations of the poses.

2. Tone - Intermediate Level
Challenge your muscular strength aerobic endurance, flexibility, balance and mental stamina with Tone.

An innovative series of lunge moves provides the primary activity in this workout that emphasizes finding your personal edge - the maximal yoga pose that still permits proper yogic breathing. Kest guides you and an in-studio class in a total-body regime that helps maintain flexibility and suppleness while building strength and well-being. Features comprising various poses are described so that you can add elements as you become more adept.

3. Sweat - Advanced Level
Looking for an advanced yoga routine? Then get ready to sweat.

"This program is definitely challenging," Kest admits about this maximal power-up session that builds upon the strength, stamina and flexibility cultivated in the first two Power Yoga programs, combining a vigorous lung series with extended standing balance and floor stretch moves, the routine flows from one pose to the next while working toward total body/mind harmony. The brisk pace provides instruction, encouragement and commentary to assist you and the on-screen class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Learn by listening and doing June 9, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a yoga novice and ever since I purchased this DVD, I have consistently used it three times per week. The first few times I was unable to maintain the poses for long, but I listened carefully to Bryan's instructions and when it got to be too intense, I sat down and watched. He's a wonderful instructor and getting this DVD and learning from it was better than some live yoga classes I'd paid for and been disappointed by.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Workout Will Test Your Limits August 18, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Many have criticized Kest but I don't care that he's a performer. A great yoga leader has to have a larger than life persona so I don't criticize him for his approach. Besides, these are great workouts, no doubt about it. I get into a huge sweat and feel great afterwards. At first I was turned off by the brassy instruction but I've grown used to it. This DVD is for people with a background in exercise, not overweight inactive people who are just starting. If you want to test your limits, Kest does a good job. One small flaw: The moves are done so quickly and the camera shots are so close-up, that it's impossible to replicate over 40% of the exercises. But after a half dozen times you can follow it.

For a beginner's level, easier-to-follow yoga workout, without check out the Yoga Zone Premiere 4 Pack Collection.

Post Script: After viewing dozens of other power yoga DVDs I have to say this is the best one. So kudos to Bryan Kest. One more positive point: Unlike some of my yoga DVDs, this one, to its credit, does not require blocks, belts, chairs, etc. All you need is a mat. I hate yoga workouts where they don't warn you that you'll need a bunch of equipment. Suddenly the instructor is sitting in front of you with blocks or a belt. Happily, Kest's workout is streamlined and doesn't surprise you with sudden equipment requirements.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beginer's advice January 9, 2003
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
This is a great video.
If, and I mean IF you're experienced with yoga. This is not a beginer's set of videos. I wanted to try some yoga that was more powerful and advanced than the Yoga journal's AM PM yoga tapes. I didn't really consider myself a slouch at it, but my goodness! I got the Bryan Kest - Power Yoga set for myself for christmas. Yoga that involves pushups! Had me panting and sweating heavily, and that's the first tape..but dispite the fact I didn't keep up with the class of Gumby like perfect people I felt like I got a good workout and it woke me up.
It's impossible to watch the tv and follow along with the tape, so you -have- to know all the asana's before you start so you can just listen and follow. It's a good work out, but let me repeat, this is NOT for anyone just starting out, or anyone that gets discouraged by the perfect people in the class. Good luck! and keep with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars bar none August 25, 2006
By Domingo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I started my Yoga practice about 1 year ago. I will soon be 57 years old and have fallen in love with this stuff. I am a avid golfer and wish that I had started doing Yoga a couple of decades ago. Its been great for my game(so-called). Like many amazon reviewers I quickly amassed numerous Yoga DVDs. Lots of variety is a good thing when your practice is home based and you are pressed for time. Thanks to Amazon and the many reviewers I have workouts to fit every time frame and every energy level on a given day. Bryans DVD has slowly and surely become my favorite, bar none. Its a tremendous bang for the buck for what Amazon sells the 3-set DVD for and the workout always leaves me feeling great. If I had to choose one Yoga DVD this would be the one. Others I like are Rainbeau Mars POWER and SWEAT, two great 30 minute workouts and Karen Voights YOGA POWER which has a nice 30 minute strength session and a 20 minute stretch session. Too many other good ones to mention but let me conclude by saying that I highly recomend Bryans DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian Kest - Power Yoga Boxed Set July 17, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
For someone who has been into running and weight training for several years, I decide to give yoga a try after I had my first baby. I thought I would be totally bored and unchallenged, boy was I wrong. Brian Kest's yoga videos, especially volume 2:Tone, has helped me create a lean and sculpted body. Brian Kest does an excellent job explaining the poses and making you feel comfortable at what ever level you are at. He is definitely not what you would picture when you think "yoga instructor",but you certainly can not judge this book by its cover. I love what his tapes have done for my body and mind. He presents the instruction in a well sequenced format and makes you feel as though you are actually in the studio taking his class. I look better now than ever! I recommend this series to only those who have yoga experience and no serious neck or back problems. Great challenging workout!

Format:VHS Tape
Bryan is the best! I purchased Kathy Smith's yoga tape but found something lacking; I felt the focus was on look at me. And in order to follow Denise Austin's routine, one has to be on speed. Suzanne Deason's tapes are great for beginners, but lacked the intensity that I needed. Patricia Walden's series are okay, more look at what I can do.
What impressed me about Bryan is his emphasis on spirituality and its application to everyday life.
I'm 53 years old, 5'8" and 125 pounds. I started Bryan's routine 7 months ago and have noticed significant changes in my body. While I have always been active, Bryan's tapes have helped me cope with the stress in my life - divorce, moving, building a new home. I work out with Bryan six days a week. Even my friend, a physican's assistant who was a personal trainer, is impressed with Bryan's workouts.
I love his down-to-earth attitude and encouraging ways. God Bless Bryan.

How does this compare to DDP Yoga?
this is the ticket. I have been doing DDP for 6 months now. Just started this last weekend and I am sore! Haven't felt sore from yoga in a while! These workouts are the real deal.
