Editorial Reviews

A Gentle Meditative Vinyasa Flow Yoga Practice. Visit the beauty of the Desert and create a strong body while dropping into a meditative state. Jyl takes you through a gentle Ashtanga style Vinyasa class. Perfect for all levels.

Ashtanga yoga, one of the most popular vinyasa styles practiced today, is often thought of as power yoga. This DVD is a bit different. Jyl has created a gentle, simplified adaptation of the first series from Ashtanga Yoga to help you slow down and really enjoy your yoga practice. She has added three musical tracks which are beautiful, meditative, and uplifting. Blending Ashtanga with Jyl's beautiful voice, the beauty of the desert, and your choice of three beautiful music tracks makes this DVD ideal for a meditative practice.

Jyl is an international yoga teacher, spiritual teacher, professional speaker, healer, and author. She embraces global healing.

The only way to truly affect the world is by taking resposibility for our individual health. We must first heal our own wounds before we can heal the wounds of out planet! Be kind, loving and gentle and all is coming." - Jyl Auxter

This is one of many videos at MyYogaVideo.com that have multiple sound tracks. You can choose between two instructional styles, detailed or asana timing only, and you can choose your music from several beautiful tracks (or no music).

***Practice DVD***: after you have listened to the detailed instructional sound track you switch to the asana timing sound track. This helps you get into the body through your yoga practice and out of your critical mind. This DVD also lets you choose the beautiful music that inspires you.

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

This didn't seem to happen too often, but it happened.

I also felt that some of the poses were not balanced.

I was very much looking forward to this DVD. I was expecting a gentle, flowing yoga practice that was relaxing and meditative. It really wasn't that. It was a hard yoga practice, that just moved slowly. She holds the poses a long while, a little too slow for my taste. I got bored, and found it very difficult, which made me frustrated. Others may love this though.

It was beautifully shot, and beautifully done. If you like to hold poses for quite a while, I would recommend trying this DVD. I don't know that it's really appropriate for beginners though? It was challenging to hold the poses for that long. And some of the poses were pretty hard, although she often gave a modification. I think a beginner would be frustrated. I consider myself an intermediate and I was a bit frustrated.

A couple problems I saw:

1. There were a couple times I noticed when she would hold a pose on one side MUCH longer than on the other. 2-3 times longer in some cases. This didn't seem to happen too often, but it happened.

2. Sometimes I could not hear her words over the music. I was using the detailed instruction. This was frustrating at times. Turning up the volume wouldn't help, because it would just make the music louder too. Dubbing problem I guess.

All in all, I do think this is a very nice yoga DVD. The choice of music is nice as well. The instructor's voice is soothing. The practice just was not for me.

I loved the beginning of this practice but as it moved on, I discovered that it was not for me. There was too much forward folding for my personality, I was in a pretty bad mood for most of the morning after this practice. I don't think there was enough heart opening to counteract all of the forward folding. So, I would not recommend this for someone who has a tendency towards depression or feeling low. Vinyasa normally puts me in a fantastic frame of mind and this practice did just the opposite. I also felt that some of the poses were not balanced. Like in warrior, it seemed that we were on the left side much longer than on the right and this happened with a few of the poses. I also felt that there was a lack of twisting asanas.

I did like the scenery and felt that the people in the video were inspiring. I have another DVD by Jennifer that I have not tried and am hoping for better results.

And one last thing, I would not recommend this to someone just starting out in yoga for a couple of reasons. There is heavy use of Sanskrit without much explanation and secondly, I don't feel that some of the poses are for beginners. Mainly, shoulder stand which can cause very serious injury if you don't know what you are doing or if you don't have a live human there to help you.

This is such a cleansing and inspiring practice. The pacing is just right for a sunrise practice and the tone of Jyl's voice is reassuring. The asana sequence is very well thought out and all the models were inspiring with their perfect poses.

I really like this DVD. It is not to hard at all. It is perfect when you really don't want to do a hard practice!It maybe for beginners but I think seasoned yogis will like it to! You will feel very refreshed and relaxed when done.

I shopped a long time before deciding on this video. I was very disappoited when I received this today to find that all four versions skip or momentarily stop. Imagine trying to get through the meditation portion and having to be distracted with the constant stopping or skipping of the video. I am sending this back right now for a refund.
