Stephanie Culen does well telling you when to breath almost at all times when she's not giving pointers on how to do the poses right. She doesn't have time to give full explanations, only the usual reminders. Her voice was not soothing to me, not irritating, but it sounded a little stressed/stiff possibly from nervousness.

The video was well done with enough repetition so that even the most green beginner would be able to pick up the poses. The instructor was very clear and offered several different variations as to levels of poses.
The day after doing this yoga dvd (even though I typically do at least 45 minutes cardio and weight training at my gym several times a week) I had some muscle soreness.
This is a great workout for those who are looking for a low impact workout. I would highly recommend it.
Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, you will get a very soothing workout. The scenery is beautiful. I hope Ms. Culen does some more yoga DVDs soon.
