I am afraid one day my VHS will break and I wont be able to find it any more.
Wendy Schwarz
My favorite thing she says, and which is so true, is something like, "Don't worry if you can't reach all the way. If that's all you can do, that's all you need."
Bpollen
You can tell she really believed in it and had taken the time to build her knowledge.

I became an instant fan of this video at the age of eight when my mother brought it home. I spent that entire summer doing yoga poses with Raquel. The tape was later lost and in the last few years I have found myself desparate to find a copy. Out of all the yoga taped that I have tried this one is the best. It contains a wide variety of poses and plenty of tips on safety and form. Plus, the tape doesn't rush you through the workout. I have grown tired of tapes that only last for 45 minutes and force you in and out of poses too quickly. With Total Beauty and Fitness, you can work at your own pace without constantly having to hit pause. The tape is wonderful in itself, but there is also the added incentive of how wonderful Ms. Welch has aged over the years. If her exercise methods have anything to do with it, I'll have whatshe's having.

I have had this tape and the accompanying book ever since the 1980's when it first came out. Both products are 5 star and I would give them 10 if I could. Raquel did a lovely job with the book and tape, very high quality, some of her best work. You can tell she really believed in it and had taken the time to build her knowledge. My advice is to get the book on Amazon, and go at your own pace, the step by step photos and explanations are detailed, yet easy to understand.

BACK STORY:
The reason this tape will never be put into DVD format, unless you do it yourself at home for personal use, is because Bikram sued Raquel. His claim was that the particular arrangement of yoga poses was patented and copyrighted by him, and the court unfortunately agreed with him. That's how he got his fancy house in Beverly Hills, with Raquel's money. My, my, what a jealous temper tantrum, just because she did such a nice job with this.

IMHO Bikram was hypocritical because HIS teacher, by the last name of Ghosh, had actually done the work of putting this series together, and it was customized to Bikram's physical problems that he was trying to recover from. Bikram didn't start teaching this series until the year after his teacher's death, so of course he didn't have to pay his own teacher any royalties. Yoga has been around for 5,000 years and this type of behavior does not make a good impression on me, plus the fact that I am heat sensitive, so I will NEVER patronize a Bikram studio at $18 per visit. I happily do the exercises at home. Here's the list, and if you don't have the book yet and want to start right away, you can get a lot of information from the Yoga Journal website.

The video (and book) highlight benefits from Hatha Yoga and good eating and living habits that can be derived whilst living in a stress-prone world. With humbleness and wit, Ms. Welch guides the viewer/reader through an alternative way to fortify and strengthen the body, improve flexibility, and, soothe the mind. The excercises are isometric by nature and provide the fastest turnaround I've seen in any type of excercise regime (including triathlon training, aerobics teaching, weight-lifting and so forth).
Really wish publishers would re-launch this work again as it is timeless and effective as compared to other tools marketed since that promise to do the same but don't.
Ms. Welsh is inspirational in her postures and the tranquility she conveys throughout this work.

Bought this tape (& book) in the 80's when I started Ballroom Dance competitions, and loved it. It really helped me to stretch, balance, focus and concentrate. Still have both tape & book - - do tape only occasionally b/c of the 80 minute time commitment. Learned a lot from the book about nutrition and health. Raquel may be beautiful to look at, but she is strong and flexible and really pushes you to do your best throughout the tape. You won't want to whimp out by not doing your best.

I purchased this video when it first came out and loved it. It was lost so I have purchased others that simply don't compare. It is driving me bonkers that I cannot locate another copy, new or used. As there is still such a high demand, why is it not available.

This is a very well done video, Rachel Welch knows yoga and she is a good instructor. This tape deserves to be republished as a DVD

I did this video about 13 years ago when it was released in the mid-eighties, at that time aerobics and ankle weights were the rage so I didn't think much of the video's deliberate poses and holds. But, after doing the video I felt muscles used without being damaged. Now at 42, I'm desperate to find a copy....every other yoga video I've searched and done is trivial by comparison to this one. Please help me out!

Aside from being a tad bit annoying (she wears a bathing suit and constantly acts as if she's on a runway) this video is VERY good. It has quickly become my fave (I have a lot!)it's the only Bikram yoga video I've ever seen. The reason you can't find anymore is because Bikram himself pulled it from being made anymore. He had this pose sequenced copywrited, patented, or whatever so that legally nobody can make money from it. I do wish he'd make a video of it himself! But, he thinks you should take it at a Bikram studio with 104 degrees temp! His 26 poses are amazing and I have much respect for the man. IF you can handle the high temp, do try a class. If not, best of luck in locating a copy of this video. Bikram does have books out, however.
