4.0 out of 5 stars Good Yoga Video, Even if You're Not a Jillian Fan March 2, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm starting from the standpoint of years of yoga practice and having taught Pilates professionally for seven years: needless to say, the boot camp style of "Biggest Loser" isn't exactly what I would go looking for in a yoga tape.

My initial Pilates-teacher bias notwithstanding, this is actually pretty interesting. It takes standard yoga poses and adds repetitions to the movement. What's really smart about it is three things:

1.) The repetitions are movements that don't put a lot of pressure on major joints--you're not moving through the joints in such a way that there is a lot of force, so this isn't likely to cause injury. Specifically, what you're not doing, is rolling through shoulder joints repeatedly, with all your weight on your shoulders, as in most Ashtanga yoga--which does tend to cause injuries.

2.) It's interval training. What that means is that your heart rate goes up and down a lot. Your body, in response, will default to a higher level of calorie burning and oxygen use, so this is a pretty good way to increase metabolism and what we think of as "lung capacity."

3.) It's difficult enough that you don't feel like you're wasting your time. Each workout is only 30 minutes, but it's difficult enough that, if your goal that day is fitness, you're definitely getting your money's worth.

Some negatives: it's filmed on a really bright gym set, which is a little difficult to watch; Jillian doesn't actually do all the poses; sometimes it's hard to see the beginner model when you need to.

Who this is for: experienced yoga folks who want a different kind of more athletic short practice; anyone wanting to add gym-based yoga to their workouts.

5.0 out of 5 stars New part of my daily routine March 3, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm a marathon runner, and I'm used to burning through calories quickly when I exercise, so I've always found yoga frustrating for its slow pace. When I finish a yoga exercise, I feel frustrated, like I should have spent those 30 or 60 minutes running. Most of the yoga classes and videos I've tried before felt more like stretching than working out, and I felt like I wasn't being very efficient with my time.

I had a feeling Jillian's video would be a good fit for me. It seemed more aeorbic than the yoga I've been exposed to before, which I liked. I was working hard enough and my heart was getting warm enough that, by the end, the time I spent doing the video didn't seem wasteful or frustrating. I plan to incorporate this into my nightly routine to wind down, and hopefully start to increase my flexibility.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blasphemous, yes, but on the other hand... September 11, 2010
By Pix76
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am an aspiring Yogini with about a year of consistent practice under my belt. I picked Yoga Meltdown because I became a huge Jillian Michaels fan after purchasing Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones. Since I love a good workout, AND I love yoga, I thought: "I can't go wrong with this video!"

Well, it turned out to be the craziest exercise situation I've ever been in. I never dreamed I would EVER hear the words: "Who's your daddy!!?" being shouted at me during a yoga session! In fact, I never got through it the first time because I spent most of the time on the floor laughing! Still, since I already have an extensive yoga library (full of "serious" yoga), I welcome this addition and will likely use it as a warm-up before doing another yoga video.

If you are a die-hard yoga fundamentalist DO NOT BUY THIS ONE!! I promise you that if you are a hard-core purist, you will see this video as nothing less than profane. When you see how Jillian has done things like turning Upward Bow into a set of inverted push-ups you'll be scandalized and outraged. Spare yourself the coronary and just look elsewhere: Power Yoga - Total Body Workout.

If you are brand-new to yoga DO NOT BUY THIS ONE, because you WILL NOT know how to make the repetitions safe for your knees and wrists. The problem is not the type of poses (they are all basic), but in order to do reps, even with basic poses, it is IMPERATIVE that you are fully competent with proper alignment. Otherwise you are likely to hurt yourself. Try

2.0 out of 5 stars Great workout;Less than great yoga March 13, 2010
Format:DVD
This is definitely a high powered workout. I believe it will help you burn calories and increase muscle tone. But if you want to experience the full range of the benefits of yoga (along with the aforementioned), this is not a good pick and is absolutely not the best place to start.
I've been doing yoga for over 30 years and I've really come to appreciate the freshness brought to the practice by innovative teachers. I'm very open minded. But, I don't think Jillian has the experience to be an effective yoga teacher--- yet. I don't think yoga has to involve eastern thought; that's not what's missing. What this lacks is the foundations of yoga; proper use of the breath and attention to the energy that we get from it. Sure, Jillian says to move with your breath and the models purse their lips as they exhale so you can see that an effort is being made to synchronize movement with breath. But the energetic flow is just not there, so the energy gain is not there; only a loss of energy. I don't mean to seem vague and point to some imaginary, woozy thing. I'm talking about something thousands of people feel everyday at the end of their yoga practice that I think will be missed at the end of this one. Just imagine burning calories (using energy) yet gaining even more energy to use for the rest of your day. When you do a high energy yoga practice properly, you gain so much energy from the practice that in spite of burning mega calories and using body weight to build muscles you feel energized and balanced when you're done. I didn't feel that way at the end of this one. If you want a fast-paced, effective yoga practice with all of the benefits and very little hype I would recommend Shiva Rea.
