Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
It's been a long and hard road for those looking for good Yoga and Pilates programs on the Wii. Wii Fit provided some Yoga exercises which by most accounts, while a decent demonstration of the potential of the Wii balance board, were a bit rudimentary and disjointed. The first "pure Yoga" title for the Wii, Dreamcatcher Yoga, was an unmitigated disaster both from a Yoga perspective and a technical perspective. The first "pure Pilates" title, Daisy Fuentes Pilates, didn't fare much better.

NewU Fitness Yoga and Pilates is actually the second "NewU" fitness game developed by Lightning Fish games to hit the US Market. The first was a game originally released in Europe as "NewU: Fitness First Personal Trainer". However, when Ubisoft (the US publisher) brought the game to the US they inexplicably changed its name "My Fitness Coach 2" (In a boneheaded move, they apparently attempted to cash in on the huge success of the original "My Fitness Coach", but ended up alienating fans of the original My Fitness Coach and short-circuiting any possible interest in the NewU title, which was a decent workout title on its own merits). Anyway, I'm happy to see that the new publisher, Deep silver, was wise enough to keep the original name for NewU Fitness First Yoga & Pilates.

In any case, if you have My Fitness Coach 2, you'll see similarities between that game and this game, most notably the "swooshing" 3-D menus and the cheeky reaction of the trainers after you've done something well.

When you start NewU Fitness First Yoga and Pilates, you first create a profile. You'll enter your name, sex, your "build" (skinny, average, or overweight), and you'll also select your experience level with yoga and Pilates (a complete beginner, someone who's taken a few classes, or an expert).

5.0 out of 5 stars Rank Beginner Gets a Solid Workout December 22, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Don't get me wrong -- I love my Wii and its balance board, but the fitness games that come with the board can only take you so far. This is especially true of the Yoga poses. Do one pose, stop, do another pose, stop. Very little of the fluidity and grace of the yoga I know.

So I was eager to try the New U Fitness First Yoga and Pilates. And I give it a resounding Yes!

Here's my take on this "game."

PROS:

1. Even though I have practiced a little yoga, I began as a rank beginner and got a solid workout. I can see that as I improve, the yoga routines will become more challenging. Just what I wanted.

2. When you set up your profile, you can indicate your goal for your practice. For example, I want to lose weight, but someone else might practice to relieve stress.

3. You can see your weight in the profile section, and the program will track your progress.

4. It's not just exercises. There are a number of meditations, and each practice will end with the option of a meditation session.

5. The program offers a number of options for background, and the teacher has the look of a video rather than a flat cartoon. Put it all together and you have a very pleasant yoga session.

CONS:

The yoga instructor moves faster than I like. Slowing it down a bit would increase the benefits of yoga.

OVERALL:

I am pleased with this program and expect it will challenge me for months rather than weeks. I recommend you take a look if you're wanting more for your Wii.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was hesitant to purchase this as Wii exercise games have been hit or miss, and with far more misses in the Yoga / Pilates category. This last Pilates offering was terrible and the reviews on the Yoga game were so poor I did not even bother to give it a try!

This game has favorable reviews on the web and as someone who likes and practices Yoga on a regular basis, I decided to give it a try! I was pleased I did!

I have practiced Yoga on and off for 10 years, and regularly attend Yoga classes ranging from a basic Hatha 1 to a more challenging Vinyasa 3 However, I would like to practice more often but not all classes are convenient to my work schedule. I was looking for something that offered a challenge and a format that differed from a traditional workout DVD. I found it in this.

It begins in much the same way as other exercise related games - asking your height, body shape, taking your weight then asking what you are looking to achieve from your workout - there are some excellent options as you can chose to target problem areas such as a back issues or tummy toning, you can chose an all over toning, arm strength or even a workout to help alleviate stress - there are plenty of options and you can go back at any time to change your goals. Also importantly it asks what your past knowledge of yoga is to allow the game to challenge you in the right ways and allow for a workout that is appropriate to your skill level. There are also options to chose the instructor (accompanied by a brief bio) and backgrounds.

I picked experienced so my review is based on this.
