5.0 out of 5 stars Baron, Great As Always! August 9, 2005
Format:DVD
I have a very extensive Yoga DVD/Video collection (over 80 and counting). Out of all of them, Baron is definitely my overall favorite teacher, hands down!

This program is a 30 minute, moderate intensity vinyasa flow. It is similar in intensity with Baron's "Unlocking Athletic Power" and "Core Power" programs in terms of length and difficulty. It's slightly more intense (mostly just by virtue of being 10 minutes longer) than his "Power Yoga Basics" program which is found on his "Transform Your Life, Yoga With Baron Baptiste" which was originally aired on PBS.

This "Journey Into Power" Level 1 program is very well rounded, has clear instruction and a nice overall feel to it. It's a class setting so you get to see lots of different ways of doing the poses.

Baron has a wonderful approach in that students should use their intuition to approach the poses at their own level of ability or energy level on any given day. You should go to your own personal "edge" without going into overwhelm.

I've been doing Yoga daily for over 7 years and found this DVD very useful for a shorter practice. My 12 year old football playing son has worked with Baron's programs and has gotten tremendous benefits from them (and did this particular DVD this morning) and my wife who is fairly new to yoga jumped right in to this program and has really enjoyed it and is making wonderful progress in strength and flexibility after only doing it for about 4 or 5 days. She also loves Baron's approach which is not intimidating even though she still finds it challenging enough to make her feel like she's getting benefits from it.

I hope this review helps those who are interested in trying a vinyasa (flow) based style of yoga, those curious about Baron as a teacher in particular or those who may be familiar with Baptise Power Vinyasa Yoga but are looking for a shorter practice to mix in with their other programs.

Namaste

3.0 out of 5 stars Too disjointed October 10, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Baron and I should preface this review by saying I have considerable Power Yoga experience, though I'm far from expert. I also have to work within some physical limitations.

That said, I found this video far too slow and disjointed and, as one reviewer said, too easy even for beginners. It had no flow like you expect in vinyasa yoga.

I would say that if you need to learn the very basic poses this would be a good video. But if you want a short practice that flows, this is not a good video for you.

I would suggest a Bryan Kest video or most any other Baron Baptiste videos. But just not this one.

I enjoy short practices and Rodney Yee, Bryan Kest and even Baron have some very good ones. I would pass on this unless you are a real novice and need to understand the basic poses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for experienced beginners. May 4, 2006
Format:DVD
I think is a great yoga dvd. It is a worthwhile substitute to attending a Baron Baptiste yoga class. While the instruction is superb I still find there are a few flaws with the DVD. The instruction assumes that you have an understanding of how to assume the poses, as well as the ability to do them correctly.

This is not a DVD for the total beginner, who has no knowledge or experience of yoga. There is no accompanying instruction or breakdown on the postures. I think someone entirely new to yoga would be lost trying to follow this program. Also there are a few minor mistakes in the instruction that might confuse the viewer.

If you have no experience or undestanding of yoga I suggest you first try the Yoga Zone DVDs which have slower instruction and repeat the steps for each pose so you can see how they are done. I also suggest for the complete beginner to attend a yoga class to get at least a foundation on yoga postures and learn the proper way to do them.

Though I don't think this DVD is easy for the total beginner, I think those with a basic knowledge of yoga would greatly enjoy it. It moves quickly and flowingly. It is not slow and sedative like some of the yoga DVDs out there. It keeps a quick pace that is easy to follow and does not bore you or let your mind wander.

It is definitely good for strength and stamina building without being too challenging. I consider this to be one of the best yoga DVDs Baron Baptiste has done.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too easy even for some beginners, IMO. May 8, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD is the first real Yoga I have ever done, and although it was relaxing, I found it far too easy and only used this DVD once. I bought it one along with the Level 2 and went straight into the Level 2 after that.

I do have a somewhat athletic background, and/but am naturally very inflexible and not the best at balance. Coming from that background, although I enjoyed this DVD I personally found it too easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Vinyasa Yoga Video April 22, 2004
By Robin
Format:DVD
This video is great for the beginners and the advanced beginners. I started taking a Vinyasa class and was unable to coordinate my schedule with class times so I looked for a video to supplement my practice at home. What a great choice. Baron Baptiste takes his time to explain the poses and provides the mood that is needed to practice yoga at home. I highly recommend this DVD.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too hard for real beginners December 22, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm sure this is a great tape for yoga enthusiasts, but it's way too hard for real beginners. I do aerobic exercise for 30-60 minutes a day, so I'm not a complete couch potato. I thought I could use some strengthening and stretching exercises, so I bought this program. The trouble is that there's no working up to the positions -- it's all or nothing, and if you're not strong or flexible enough to hold the position, down you go. I found it really, really hard. I could manage less than half the positions. Since each flows into the next, you don't get to stop and try less advanced versions. I hate to think what the advanced programs are like! I also have a small quarrel with the outside of the package, which says that the participants are of "all body types." That would be both slim and strong, and very slim and strong. There are no pudgy real beginners on this tape. For instance, if you're a woman who can't already do a number of full-body push-ups (no touching your knees to the floor!), you won't get through this tape. I think this would be a good program for people who've already done considerable yoga or strength training. But it's not for beginners.

Great intro to yoga. Baron Baptiste does a great job balancing teaching correct form while making the experience calming so you can still take away the feeling of great practice.
