If you're one of those stuck-up yoga people at the gym, this DVD will be too easy for you. Spend your money on another Vinyassa Yoga class.
If you're new to Yoga and want the benefits of Yoga without the stuck-up Yoga people, get this DVD.
I think this DVD would be good to use after a workout to provide some stretching and flexibility. I also think it would be good after a long day at work to relieve stress. I like the 20 minute segments as they are easy to fit in anyplace.
The words Hemalayaa uses to describe the DVD are "fun", "joyful", "smile". I think these are good descriptions. I'm easily bored by yoga DVDs that are so serious, and seem to go on forever. She does have some mantras/chants (yum, rum) and also some funny facial expressions. I am NOT a chanting person, but in the spirit Hemalayaa does them they are simply fun. If you don't feel like doing them, then don't (or smile that she does them). The expressions - well you can do them or not, but they are also in the same fun spirit.
The poses are not difficult, but I also think the DVD is not boring. (I've been burned by "beginner" yoga DVDs that could put me to sleep.) I think she has done a good job of putting together a DVD that will appeal to a wide audience, not just very serious yoga followers (in fact, it may be the more serious yoga followers that have the most trouble with this DVD).
When I finished both practices, I felt cheerful, more flexible and relaxed. There are differences between the two practices, although they are also similar. That might be the one improvement she could have made - to distinguish between the practices a little more.
I have a bad knee and the only pose I skipped was the warrior pose in the second practice. I was able to adjust all other poses to respect my knee.
update: 06/29/2011. I've been having sore knees, and I'm 95% sure it's because of this Yoga Video. Be careful with this video because she does quite a few lunges. Which I think is the culprit!
