The instruction portions of the video are excellent.

As a plus size lady who has limited choices in yoga classes that work well for my body type, this DVD works well for helping me modify poses when necessary.

I have only used it twice and can already tell a huge difference in how my back feels!

I am a heavyweight woman who just turned 50, and I've wanted to learn yoga for years. After trying to learn on my own, then trying to take a Bihkram yoga class and failing at both, I thought I'd have to give up. Then I heard about this DVD, and thought I'd give it one more try. This DVD understands my unique needs, says yes you can, and here's how. I suggest watching all of the instructional segments first, otherwise some of the details like fan folding the blanket for starting the warmups will be missed. The verbal instructions are thorough, but I'd encourage watching the long session entirely before attempting to do it. That makes it easier when the DVD is hard to see because of the position we're in. Abby doesn't move too quickly, and although it's challenging to hold some of the poses at first she encourages us to be as kind to ourselves as she is to us. It's an awesome DVD.

I am a very inflexible woman of 55 years of age. I have degenerative disk disease w/ stenosis in my back with the added problem of arthritis through my whole body. I have been encouraged to move more. I can not walk because of my back problems. I will not join a gym to do Yoga because, as we plus sized women know, we don't quite fit in and I am embarrassed to go. So, I thought that it would be fun to see if they had any plus sized DVD's that I could do in the privacy of my own home. I can not praise this DVD and Abby enough ! I have been doing the warm up and now the Session 1 for a week now and I can already notice a change in my body. My abdominals are strengthened and I have more energy. Please order this if you are at any level of 'Plus Size'. Abby makes it easy to accommodate any size and she makes me feel so good about myself. I have NEVER done Yoga in my life before.

As a yoga teacher, I'm often asked to suggest a video students can use at home. I would highly recommend Abby's DVD for anyone interested in learning to do yoga for their individual needs. Her instructions are very clear and easy to understand. Abby's explanation of using props, and her demonstration of postures make yoga accessible to those new to a yoga practice or familiar with yoga. This DVD is a must for any collection.

The instructor is probably considered obese by medical standards, yet she provides a great example of how a heavy person can also be fit and flexible. Her instructions are clear and practical, even to the point of demonstrating how to move a large belly out of the way to get the best stretch. This video is obviously designed for overweight people, but it would be equally useful for normal weight beginners or seniors. The introduction is a little bit amatuerish, but don't get discouraged. The instruction portions of the video are excellent.

Format: DVD
First, I have to say I love this DVD. It's adaptable, gentle and if you are truly a larger person, it will even be challenging. I came into this with no yoga experience and at a large size with limited flexibility. I carry most of my weight in the midsection so many of yoga's poses are impossible for me without modification. I also have so little flexibility in the backs of my legs that just straightening my leg burns. That being said, I learned enough watching it through the first time to understand that eventually, I could learn to be at peace enough with my body to work around its limitations. So parts of it were challenging. But I felt amazing the next day. And then I couldn't wait to get home and do it again and by the third day I developed a rhythm. I expect if I stick with it this will end up improving the the impediments I thought were standing between me and yoga. So I recommend giving it a shot.
The only things I could ask improvement-wise are a better showcase for Abby's warmth and intelligence. I know the budget has to be kept in check, but the quality didn't feel as good as the content demanded. And a bit more instruction about working with a real belly. The kind of belly ladies with PCOS or "apple" shapes have. Some poses verge on pain and I wasn't really sure how to get similar effects while modifying the pose.

Format: DVD
I got my DVD's just a few days ago, and I must say a HEAVYWEIGHT thanks to Abby. I used to do yoga when I was younger and loved the way it made me feel, more balanced and lighter. I have done 3 international moves and had 2 boys, not to mention my husband deployed to Afghanistan twice, and have put on a ton of weight in the last 8 years. I still wanted to get back into yoga. I tried a few videos and classes unsuccessfully because of my weight, I thought they were physically impossible... Abby proved me wrong! With something called the belly well Abby proved there is no excuse for not doing a pose. However this is no lightweight yoga. She really kicked my but on some of the poses, and I loved it!! Doing day two was easier and so on. The other thing that I love is the format of the DVD is so that you can custom build your class based on the amount of time and energy you have. She also shows modifications for people that have a hard time getting on the floor or cannot get there at all. Some of the reviews say that she is really chatty... well she is teaching something and goes into detail explaining it... once you have the moves down you could turn the sound off and turn on some music or better yet, pass the DVD on to a friend and help them start their yoga practice. I however wouldn't call her "chatty" I find her voice calming and encouraging. Thanks so much Abby for what you do... Namaste
