5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD YOGA STRESS RELIEVER WORKOUT December 28, 2007
By SUNDARI
This workout is a great stress reliever for those times we feel anxiety, restlessness and stressed out. The format is yoga stretching style. The first section is done standing and is more active yoga stretching. The second segment is restorative meditative floor stretching. I loved the music and the instructors voice was very calming throughout the workout. The scenery is a very relaxing beautiful outdoor setting. I did the whole workout and felt very relaxed and gently thorougly stretched out at the end. I bought this workout so that I would have two 20 minute yoga stretching workouts to add-on to other high intensity workouts. But I found out that this is a great workout for just before bedtime also. This workout is a keeper with many uses. I would highly recommend this workout to all those that love good music, beautiful outdoor relaxing scenery and an instructor with a soothing voice and demeanor. Worth having in everyones workout collection

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD for Beginners January 20, 2008
Having done a Yoga class at my local YMCA and enjoying it, I decided to pick up a yoga video for home. I grabbed this one and am so glad that I did. As the other reviewers have stated this DVD is made up of 2 routines that both last 20 minutes. The DVD allows you to select either one or the other. If you choose to do the first routine (standing yoga) it will flow into the second routine (floor yoga).
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.

This is set outside with a wonderful view that have been on other Self dvds & 2 women backup, one showing modifications, all in good shape. The production values are professional. The music starts with a good beat, though a little too like other fitness music, but it changes with the workout & gets lighter with more Asian & then meditative music which was wonderful.
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.

Active Sequence: 21 min
mountain with arms moved to breath, mountain w/side bends, wide angle standing w/arms moved to breath, standing wide angle bend, warrior 2 on each side, , warrior 1 & 2, repeat on other side, warrior 2, 1, 2, repeat on other side, standing wide angle bend, warrior 2, revolved warrior, triangle, side angle, crescent w/prayer twist, 1 leg hamstring stretch, down dog, standing fwd bend, mountain, repeat on other side.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly what it says it is August 11, 2010
I enjoyed the first sequence of flow yoga. Good instructions and variations are shown but not really talked about. It was the restorative yoga portion I had problems with. They should have called it what it is; a pilates workout. Anyone who has done a restorative program knows you aren't doing crunches. So, overall, a nice workout with good instructors, just bad with the descriptions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice June 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
I've taken a beginner's yoga course previously and got this DVD to help with some substantial problems dealing with stress. I believe it has helped immensely! The work-out level is light (as is the yoga experience level) but undoubtedly counts for something and I truly believe my body is having a healthier stress reaction since I've been doing it regularly for a couple of weeks. Added bonus: My little toothpick arms are suddenly toned. I wasn't trying to tone them, but it looks nice. I only wish the whole thing were longer because I enjoy it so much. I recommend this DVD to friends. Some reviews for other yoga DVDs have complained of choppy splicing... this workout does not have this problems. It flows beautifully. There is also a tranquil background and satisfactory soundtrack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Workout and De-Stresser! September 24, 2008
I've been working out for years and years doing treadmill, swimming, elliptical, weights and decided to incorporate yoga into my newest weight loss phase. This DVD is amazing! All those years of gym-style cardio hasn't changed my body for the better as much as these 20-minute sessions 3-4 times a week has. I'm leaner, stronger, more flexible, destressed, and happier (so is my husband!). This is a great DVD for anyone. Thank you to the Young Survival Coalition!
