Editorial Reviews

A regular yoga practice is ideal for achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. Filmed in a lush garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this dynamic yoga practice focuses on both the physical and mental factors that can affect weight. Physically it combines active vinyasa flow sequences with strengthening poses for optimal body conditioning. The vinyasa flows elevate the heart rate and burn calories while the strengthening poses build muscle and create a more toned, streamlined physique. Mentally this program will help develop the inner strength of self-acceptance, focus and gratitude thereby reducing stress and creating happiness from the inside out.

About the Instructor:
Ashley Turner is one of the premiere yoga teachers in Los Angeles. She holds a Master’s in Counseling Psychology and is known for her unique approach to yoga: a combination of physical instruction and mental application to help her students channel energy, release stress and improve fitness. Recently named “Who’s Who of Power Yoga” by Yoga Journal, Ashley has been featured in other prestigious publications such as Health, Women’s Health and Outside Magazine. With a list of clientele that includes models, Hollywood creatives, distinguished business leaders and renowned musicians, Ashley has taught yoga in group classes, international retreats, and private sessions for over ten years.

“Element’s Yoga For Weight Loss feels like a private class with a master teacher – in this case, Ashley Turner, yoga teacher to the stars. Her gentle patter invites you to set your own intention and directs attention to yoga’s power to heal and transform from the inside out…The net effect is an inward-focused practice that creates a sacred space for you to calmly assess all that you need to change to support your weight-loss goals.” – Hillari Dowdle, Yoga Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Workout October 18, 2009
By Laura J
Verified Purchase
I recently started practicing yoga again after stopping a few years ago and have been looking for something new to replace my old DVDs. I bought one of another well-known yoga instructor's DVD and found it to be very challenging and not for beginners/intermediates as it was advertised.

Ashley Turner's "Yoga for Weight Loss" was just what I was looking for. The poses and pace make for an excellent cardio and core strength workout, and afterwards, I feel relaxed and accomplished. Ashley's voice is calm and encouraging and her instruction is clear and concise. I find her to be very motivational and look forward to more DVD releases from her.

As for the reviewer who's sour about the intro: I personally find it comforting to know that I'm taking instruction from someone who is qualified and think it should be mandatory for all instructors to give their credentials on their products. *smile*

5.0 out of 5 stars A great yoga workout. March 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
I've been practicing yoga off and on for over ten years and this is a very solid workout. The moves are to a level where anyone can do them or modify them if they find a move too difficult. Don't get me wrong, this is a challenging workout, but with time you will be amazed at your progress.

I've found that the new style of yoga dvd's have a jerky, rapid movement style that I find dangerous (certainly for people new to yoga), but this DVD used fluid movements.

I have been doing this DVD for about a month and my body has toned up a lot, and I have been working out 5 days a week for over 10 months, so someone who hasn't worked out at all will really feel more toned. I am amazed at what this one DVD has done for my body.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! May 20, 2012
By Winger
Verified Purchase
I looked at a lot of reviews, both good and bad, concerning this video. Now that I have it and have used it, I want to disregard all the negative reviews. Some hated the beginning, I thought that's great, fast forward and don't listen to it then! Some hated the style, that's okay, I might like it. Some were embarrassed to use it around their spouse, I have a habit of memorizing the movements and then going somewhere else when my husband is home to exercise.

I guess what I'm saying is: I was a little apprehensive because of the negative reviews but decided to get it based on my thought process listed above. Now that I have it, I think the intro is short and to the point. It tells me she's experienced and trusted in this area. I find her narrative really good. She doesn't have what I think of as a dreamy voice that makes me feel bored. Her voice is matter-of-fact and even. She gets you into the spirit of it and allows for those of us that are not yet into a more experienced level.

I find my limmbs have that tingley, shakey feeling you get after a good workout after only a half hour. And that makes me feel good!

Overall, I think this is a good video for someone who's looking for weightloss and toning and who is new to yoga.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad December 3, 2011
Verified Purchase
I will start with the workout itself, which is not bad. Not too challenging but not a walk in the park, her flows themselves are pretty standard. Then comes the talking. I understand what she is trying to do with the motivating and her pep-talking and her masters in psychology and all of that but good gracious! I am embarassed to put this dvd in if my husband is at home because I don't want him to laugh at me listening to "sometimes when we think we are hungry all we are really needing is a hug or a smile". So I can only do this one on my day off.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Absolute Wonderful Experience! August 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, I cannot review this program from the perspective of a true yoga expert...honestly, when I bought this DVD, I was just interested in adding some new life to my old workout routine. I was also interested in learning about yoga, rather than the "yoga-based" workouts that I'd done in the past, but that still came second on the priority list. Anyway, I am absolutely blown away by Element: Yoga for Weight Loss! This program has now taken the place of all other DVDs that were once in my rotation (although I still do a separate cardio routine). The instructor is fantastically knowledgeable and encouraging and gives prompts right on time. The workout is challenging and SO rewarding; it is truly a full-body blast. Also, there are enough modifications presented that I feel as though I have plenty of room to grow with this routine. Yoga for Weight Loss is something that I actually look forward to doing everyday--I seriously can't wait to do it!
Now, I am a mom of four little boys, so I really have to MAKE THE TIME to work out (no snacks for 45 minutes, people, don't even ask--that's the rule!), but my kids really love this routine, too. They are always trying to keep up, which makes for great comedy--but more importantly, it makes me feel good to see them taking an interest in such a wonderful practice. As for results, after one month of performing this workout for an average of 4 times a week, I can see some positive changes in my body; I've noticed some increased muscle definition and I am slowly seeing an increase in my flexibility, but--and I never thought I'd say this due to my inclination to work out for vanity's sake--what is more impressive to me is how I FEEL now. I am so much more relaxed in my daily life.
