5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for serious at home yoga students June 5, 2009
By aMused

I agree with the first 2 reviews on this DVD so I won't bother repeating what has already been written.

I've practiced yoga at home for about 10 years without benefit of personal instruction. I own over 20 DVD's on yoga and at least a dozen books on the subject because although my life does not allow me to get out and go to classes, I am a very serious student. I'm 50 years old and I need to stay fit and balanced to take care of my aging body as well as a severely disabled loved one. That said, I count on instructors who can reach out to people they've never met and try to anticipate all the questions and various levels of ability of these many students.

I first encountered Sadie Nardini through her wonderful YouTube videos. If you are sitting on the fence and want to see for yourself how this woman instructs I suggest you go to her YouTube channel [...] and watch some of her many offerings. After watching her videos I longed for a DVD with Sadie talking me through a good routine. Sadie really delivers with this DVD. You get the benefit of her explanations and unique approach to yoga with a routine that is beautifully designed. Sadie also has a preview of this DVD on her website:[...] She needs to link it here as well, hopefully she'll do that.

Sadie moves through everything slowly and carefully. If you are a beginner or restarting after taking too much time off (raising my hand) this gives you plenty of time to adjust to getting into the various poses. If you've built up some stamina and you know the routine well, this slowness really forces you to develop grace, strength and really challenges your stamina.

The routines she has outlined is quite a bit like buying several DVDs in a set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative, invigorating, intense! June 2, 2009
By Annie
Verified Purchase
I discovered Sadie through her YouTube videos, which are excellent, and a great preview for this DVD practice. Her sequences are so much fun--they always contain an unexpected element, and you'll get a sweaty and invigorating workout. The pace is brisk but not frantic. I was able to extend fully into poses before she moved on. The core focus is worked in smoothly and consistently. This is NOT Pilates with a few yoga poses in between.

The DVD is broken into mini flows, including her unique Sun Salutations, a twisting flow, a balance flow, inversions, hip openers, arm balances, an ab flow, and a few others. Some of the sections are relatively brief (7-9 minutes-ish), while others are over 15 minutes. She also includes several preset sequences, which, as the previous reviewer mentioned, are lengthy but so very worth it.

Lastly, Sadie has a great narration voice, and bless her, she avoids the goofy yoga metaphors and descriptors when she's detailing the poses. Awesome!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Power workout November 25, 2009
Verified Purchase
If you're looking for "power yoga," you'll probably love this workout. It *is* incredibly challenging, creative and varied, but despite the fact that there are yoga postures here, it doesn't feel like yoga to me. I don't mean to disparage Sadie or the practice. If a power workout is what you want, that's great and this may be it. I prefer more of a mind-body-spirit practice, so this just isn't for me. To each his or her own!

I had trouble keeping up with some of the cues. I was also a little worried about some of the moves - for example, "Shakti kicks." If you're not able to do these with complete control, it seems like you could really hurt yourself. Sadie is in fantastic condition, so even though I'm in ok shape, older (lol) me could in no way keep up with her! Again, it's up to the practitioner to be aware of limitations and adjust accordingly, but Sadie is so enthusiastic it's hard not to want to try to stick with it.

If you want a challenging workout, you might want to give this DVD a try. If you're looking for a more balanced, more than physical practice, you may want to consider looking elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Transformative and inspiring yoga DVD! June 21, 2009
They say that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear and this was true for me and coming across Sadie and her empowering style of yoga known as Core Strength Vinyasa (CSV).

Last November (2008) a friend emailed me a link to a company that makes custom yoga mats. On the front page of this company's website was a box promoting Sadie Nardini and CSV. Clicking box this led to Sadie's website and from that starting point I explored her numerous YouTube videos and various podcasts.

I was genuinely amazed ... as a relatively new yoga teacher (2.5 years at that point) I am always looking for ways to inspire my students, offering them yoga that is fun, safe yet challenging, and most of all therapeutic and transformative. And that is what Sadie teaches! The clarity of her presentation is excellent.

I have spent literally thousands of dollars on live yoga workshops and programs during my "yoga career". Some were good, some so-so, and some a waste of money. What Sadie offers is among the highest quality instruction you will find anywhere.

Even more amazing is that she takes the time to read and respond to emails she receives. If you have a question about CSV you can email her and she will reply! Wow! Even though I have never met her in person I can tell that she really cares.

This new DVD from Sadie is simply one of the very best yoga DVDs I have seen. I have looked at numerous yoga DVDs and truly the world of yoga is been blessed with some wonderful, dedicated teachers.

However, relatively few DVDs are sensitive to the journey of an evolving personal yoga practice explaining the "seed" of a pose and the steps necessary to grow into the full expression of the pose.

Trying to make sense of your post. All yoga practices will make you gain weight, as will a vegetarian diet? Sources? This is all contrary to what I have experienced/observed?
