5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing workout..... January 16, 2011
Format:DVD
I am not new to fitness but am somewhat new to Yoga, roughly an advanced beginner. I have several other power yoga dvd's, and this by far is the best. The poses are challenging enough, but not overly so. I really like that she spends a decent amount of time specifically on the abs; she also hits the upper body - there is lots of Chaturanga in this. So much so that by the time she got to side plank my arms were shaking so bad I could barely hold it. Let alone do any more Chaturanga's! I like that she gives both Sanskrit & English names for the poses. This DVD flows very quickly - I would not recommend this to a beginner - you also need to know the poses by name or you will not be able to keep up. I knew nothing about Ashley when I bought this, so I am really pleased with my purchase. I wanted a Power Yoga that would get my heart rate up and do enough poses with enough difficulty that my heart rate would be up and my muscles would feel as tho I went to the gym, and this DVD accomplishes that very nicely. I look forward to more from this instructor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Newest addition to my rotation August 1, 2011
By mely
Format:DVD
This DVD is comprised of a single workout. It begins with about three full minutes of meditation. After that, about 55 minutes of interval yoga poses ensues, and three segments can be designated from the sequence.

The first segment involves standing pose preparation, with crescent poses, warrior one, and warrior three. It's challenging and has plenty of invigorating vinyasas, including "yoga push-ups".

The second is what I consider the "yogalates" segment of the DVD, with utkatasanas and an abdominal workout section. You can definitely feel the burn in your abs during this segment, although I find myself wishing it were shorter each time I do it because it's like doing crunches - pretty boring.

The third section contains more standing poses and yoga push-ups, definitely a heart rate booster. Warrior two and side-angle pose are featured most prominently here. It also has a vertical splits challenge that I like because none of the other DVDs in my rotation contain anything like it.

There are no twisting postures or inversions, which would be my main complaint. Also notably absent is triangle pose. There is a short segment for backbends (wheel), which I also wish were a bit longer.

Overall, I enjoy this DVD. The music is not bad as far as yoga DVDs go, and the instructor's voice does not annoy me. I find I get a good workout, which is the main purpose of power yoga.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another hit from element and Ashley Turner January 29, 2011
Format:DVD
I have all three Element yoga DVDs from Ashley Turner: Element: Yoga for Weight Loss, Element: Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility, and now Element Power Yoga. Ms. Turner never fails to develop a sucessful yoga program. What I like best is that although there are moves that I recognize from most yoga DVDs like the plank, warrior, and downward dog, she always throws in at least a few moves I've either never seen or are very rare for other yoga instructors. Some exaples are reverse warrior and cresent with your arms wrapped around each other like a pretzle. I especially like her focus on the abs in this DVD. She uses planks, but also has other yoga abs moves so that you work the upper, lower, and obliques. I also like her tone of voice, emphasis on breathing, and cuing. The 60 minute DVD seemed to fly by, yet I felt I got a decent workout. I think her Yoga for Weight Loss gives you a little more strenuous workout than Power Yoga, but I felt more in tune with my center after this one. So I felt equally good afer both, but for different reasons. I've practiced yoga long enough that the routine was ways to pick up on the first try, and I think others would have the same ease as well, no matter their level. I recommend this yoga DVD to everyone and look forward to Ms. Turner's next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ashley Turner is Life Changing May 24, 2012
By Bella
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm attaching a more thorough review that I wrote on my blog if you're interested: [...]

As for what I have to say here: I do yoga for a myriad of reasons. I love to feel strong, fit and limber. I have a racing mind, anxiety and the urge to compulsively "over think" just about everything that occurs in my life. I am enamored by the spiritual and harmonious emotions that stir within me when the soothing voice of an exceptional yoga teacher explains the beauty of life to me. I am infatuated with the strength that this practice is building within my body, mind and spirit. I have discovered, after many years of sporadic practice and a solid year of daily dedicated practice, that I truly do take the ujjayi breathing off of my mat and into the world, and it truly DOES get me through rough spots. Ashley Turner, along with Kathryn Budig, has changed my life. Her Master's in Psychology radiates through her expertise on the body and yoga. The blend is intoxicating and I literally hear the words she says on these DVDs echo in my mind throughout my days. I constantly remind myself, "The body is an instrument, not an ornament," which is a Turner quote that I sometimes want to tattoo on my forehead. It's that good.

Now, about the DVDs (I own the trio of the "frequently bought together" amazon recommended DVDs). The workouts = 100% score. They are challenging, I break a sweat, and yet there are resting poses to remember WHY we're here, WHY we've come to out mats, WHAT our intention is within our own practice. Power Yoga is challenging, I am often needing to rest by the last warrior pose sequence and I practice yoga everyday. Be patient with yourselves, I look forward to the day when I can power through this DVD and need not rest - though, as they say, everyday our practice changes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good strength workout, could do w/out the spiritualizing
This is an overall good workout. It didn't seem to contain as much variety as some of my other 60-minute yoga videos, not sure why, but she does talk a lot, maybe that is it. Read more
