Basically, I was looking to try yoga for some time but never really had a chance. One day I was flipping through the channels, and saw this on FitTV, watched an episode, and have been hooked ever since. There are two seasons of this show (each with 13 episodes) and a special other DVD. There is a lot to like here. These are the best Yoga DVD's I've ever seen, I love them dearly, and I plan to explain why. Granted, I still prefer real class, but these dvd's are the best I've found for a home practice. I honestly, cannot praise this show enough.

First, the visuals in this show are really appealing. Unlike a lot of other yoga and fitness DVD's I've tried, these aren't set in a studio with people poorly trying to guide you. The women in these DVD's practice in a few different locations (visually stunning ones at that), and the voice over does a good job guiding you through the poses and also instructing you on the poses. The locations as well as the voice over are very soothing, and help to keep you focused without you even really noticing.

Second, the time of each sequence is about 23 minutes, which is what the half-hour show is cut down to without commercials. It doesn't seem like that long, but you really feel it. It breaks down to a short warm up, the proper sequence, which is always 12 minutes, then a cool down and a brief savasana. I love this time frame for when I want to get something in, but don't have the energy for a really lengthy routine.

Third, the poses are again some of the best I've seen on a DVD. There are the easy, and staple, poses such as Warrior 1, but there are also more advanced poses such as Crane. The poses vary for each sequence, and if you buy all three sets, you have about a month's rotation if you do one a day.

I've got more yoga DVDs than sense...I always have high hopes and am frequently disappointed by bad editing & choppy sequences. A friend recommended these and I am in her debt! The photography is magnificent...not only the exteriors but the body shots of poses are perfect. You get complete flow throughout the sequences even if the locale has changed. These are the only yoga DVDs I own where I get a true sense of a practice, from beginning to end.

I've read elsewhere criticism of how young and beautiful the women are. They are lovely but they are 100% committed to the discipline. I like that the DVDs show multiple practitioners and allow you to see variance in form.

There are poses that I never understood (even in class) until I saw them on this DVD set. The camera serves as no human eye could, delivering every view possible. Kate Potter's narration is flawless.

I now use these DVDs for my home practice. I could not be more happy with them and recommend them highly.

If you are new to yoga, this is how you should learn. If you are a seasoned yogi, this is how you should practice.

I, like so many others, came across Namaste on FitTv and it was absolutely life altering for me. 5 years ago, after the birth of my 2nd daughter, something in my body had changed. I had acquired an annoying pain that started in my back. First I did what most people do and tried to ignore it, but after months of chronic pain that only seemed to get worse (I could only sleep in a chair), I finally saw a physician. This led to 5 years of Dr.'s, testing, medications, multiple diagnoses (osteoarthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia)...all of which seemed to say that I would have to find a way to "live with the pain." At its worst, I was barely able to get out of bed, rarely could stand up straight without excruciating pain and spasms. Not only was I practically unable to care for my two young children, I couldn't enjoy them. I couldn't be the "fun mom" that I was and longed to be. This coupled with the pain I felt everyday spiraled me into a depression.

I became pregnant again and surprisingly all of my symptoms seemed to disappear during the pregnancy. This was a great relief to both my husband and myself. However, a few months after her birth, the symptoms started to reappear...slowly. In search of a less medicated and more holistic approach, I came across Namaste. I watched, and I knew that it was exactly what I needed. The sessions are fluid, they are meditative and they are challenging. I absolutely LOVE everything about them: the music, the instruction, the location, the ambiance, EVERYTHING. I am not new to yoga or meditation but am far from a seasoned yogi.

The good: As a red-blooded man, I appreciate the swirling close-ups of the barely-clothed toned bodies of the attractive young women. Also, the background scenery is very pretty.

The bad: Due to the swirling camera, it's actually somewhat difficult to see what's going on. I've looked up to understand the pose, only to see an extreme close-up of some woman's belly - not real helpful. I find myself hitting rewind multiple times, just so I can understand what she's trying to say.

Although I've been practicing yoga for 14 years from a wide variety of teachers and videos, I frequently have no idea of what the narrator is saying. She whispers everything, and apparently makes up her own names for established yoga poses. (It's Cat and Cow, not Cat and Cat Lift! There is no such thing as Cat Lift, or Cat Bow! It's Standing Splits, not Needle!)

Also, the essence of yoga is breathing. This style requires constant movement, and so guided breathing is even more important than it usually is, but the postures here are done with very little comments relating to breathing. It should be "Inhale as you do this, annnnddd... exhale as you do this", but that's not the way it happens.

Very disappointing. I have lots of yoga DVDs, and this one is near the bottom of the barrel.
