5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite yoga workout! August 14, 2000
By pmg1975
Verified Purchase
Like the other reviewers, I am also achieving the benefits of Ms. Carter's "un"workout. This is the first yoga tape I'd ever purchased (Feb. '99) and at first it took me a few times to get the feel of the postures and where exactly I was going with my focus. I'd never done yoga before or like, Ms. Carter, considered myself "athletic" in any way.
This tape always makes me sweat and I feel like I've worked every muscle and strengthened and stretched everything possible. I've received better muscle tone, less back trouble (as I sit at a desk all day), better posture, my waist has gotten smaller love those side bends), and I just feel good all over after an intense "un"workout.
I decided to build my yoga library, and Ms. Carter's followup tape was my second choice. I recently added Bryan Kest's Power Yoga 1 and Jane Fonda's Yoga tape, so I can alternate and still get a great workout from various instructors and still get the overall sweating and "sensations". I also take one day off a week to "rest", but on that day I do the P.M. portion of Ms. Carter's "Unworkout II" before bedtime for a good night's sleep.
For beginners, this is **the** tape to start with and it still remains my favorite due to Ms. Carter's encouragement, instruction, and sense of humour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely the Best September 15, 2000
Dixie Carter is very informative, funny and her voice is extremly relaxing to listen to. As a first timer at this she explained everything very well and made me feel very comfortable. This tape is well worth the money and I would recomend it to anyone and everyone. You must buy this tape!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dixie Carter's Unworkout February 6, 2000
This video is not only a workout, but it is also relaxing because of the good breathing one must do throughout the exercises. I enjoy this workout tape because Ms. Carter is an extremely good teacher, and she makes the workout rewarding. The "cool down" phase at the end is spiritual and uplifting! I highly recommend this to beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga Easy February 17, 2003
By A Customer
Doing this tape 2 - 3X a week has virtually eliminated my middle aged aches and pains; painful muscle stiffness which has plagued me most of my adult life (especially hands, neck, shoulders and back) is a thing of the past. I always feel about an inch taller after I do this workout. An added benefit: I'm less grouchy. I run, swim and do weights occasionally, but this is the tape that makes those things possible. After you've done it about 50 times, you'll want to fast forward through some of the longer explanations but I find Dixie's voice and her music pleasant and soothing. I'm forever grateful to this "designing woman".

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best! March 29, 1999
I have both of Dixie Carter's tapes, and I must say that her tapes are the best yoga tapes I have tried. She really knows it. I am 60 years old and still get many admiring comments.

I found the pace challenging and manageable. The background colors, music and Dixie's lovely voice and sense of humor, helped me stick with it. I simply envisioned myself at my personal spa with my personal trainer--a woman I admire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yoga - who knew it could be such a great workout! December 19, 1998
By Kim
Verified Purchase
Miss Carter does a wonderful job of presenting this yoga-based, non-impact workout, adaptable to a variety of fitness levels. Her soothing southern accent, as she talks you through each exercise, helps to maintain the relaxed, spiritual mood she encourages you to establish early in the video. You learn body-cleansing breathing techniques, helpful for relaxation and stress reduction. The exercises progress into graceful stretching and strengthening movements, always with the proper breathing techniques. Expect to break a sweat - this "unworkout" is a workout. As you persist with this program, the movements become easier, without compromising the benefits. A slimmer, toned and more flexible you is the outcome. There were not many muscles missed when it came to stretching and strenghtening! The video winds down with more quiet time, leaving you feeling spiritually refreshed, relaxed and with a great sense of accomplishment. Although you can select the exercises you choose to do, it is best to follow the video from start to finish. I allow one hour per session. I highly recommend this video to anyone, of any age. It has provided me an opportunity to combine the the "quiet time" I need to allow myself with the exercise I often neglect.
As a sidenote... Miss Carter says she performs her Yoga routine on a regular basis. I believe it. I saw her show this past year in NY - she wore a very form-fitting outfit and looked great!

5.0 out of 5 stars I am 52 years old and feel younger everytime I do Dixie! February 16, 1999
By A Customer
I have several yoga tapes and I love Dixie Carter's Unworkout the best. I actually enjoy the time I spend "with" Dixie. There has been a noticable drop in my blood pressure (according to my family physician) which I attribute to being able to release the tension that accumulates after a day's stress.
