As with another older woman reviewer, I find Ana's demonstrations of advanced yogic practice inspirational. I, too, will never attain the level of mastery that Ana has, but I find watching her truly inspirational. As I do yoga flow on my own at home, I find that I've pushed myself a bit further after doing the class (or watching the demonstration) on this DVD.

This DVD is a good change from the proliferation of fast paced vinyasa flow DVDs out there. I only gave it 4 stars because I wish there was more material on it.

I like Ana's attention to detail and the longer time that is spent in poses, which allows one to attend to these details.

It is interesting that some say that Ana's style feels outdated. I suppose it's because she doesn't use East Asian music in the background nor wear fashionable yoga wear? Also, I would agree with those who find her demeanor a bit off putting. Quite frankly, she doesn't look like a happy person. It's too bad, 'cause as much as I like Shiva Rea and her absolutely gorgeous DVDs, I have learnt more from Ana Forest's short DVD.

I love this video! I have many yoga videos and practice at home mostly, after taking classes for many years. This is one of my favorites. I like Ana's teaching style, and especially like the poses she includes, which are wonderful for loosening up tight shoulders and neck. The Native American style music is unobtrusive, and Ana is encouraging and warm. The video is not a vinyasa flow, but includes a good set of poses: dolphin and down dog, neck stretches, several prone backbends, a good abs section, warriors with extra shoulder stretches, twists, and lunges. In the lovely guided shavasana, Ana includes visualizations of the elements and their connections to the body.

I did not get this DVD in order to 'do it'. At 61, I doubt I will ever be able to do yoga as Ana Forrest does it. I purchased this DVD because I wanted to see what a crippled child had been able to accomplish. Ana's strength...especially upper body strength...is phenomenal. Most women would never achieve her level of upper body strength. Whenever I grow discouraged at my 'yoga' strength progress, I watch this DVD and remind myself that persistence and determination can overcome even the seemingly most impossible obstacles. I use Ana's DVD as a reminder that I can achieve what now seems impossible if I just persist ....taking as much time as needed to accomplish my goal.

I especially love the way Ana encourages the members in her class. Each time I watch this DVD and listen to her corrections, I learn. If all I ever do is WATCH this DVD, it will have served its purpose. Who knows...maybe someday, I will actually be able to yoga with Ana.

What is better than a yoga instructional DVD from the woman that invented that style?! Ana is amazing, Forrest yoga is so natural, and if you can't find a class near you, this is the next best thing.

I did this program a few years ago in a classroom setting and as a result, my body felt great, flexible and toned. The class was discontinued and I haven't done yoga regularly since. I was thrilled to find this DVD on Amazon. Starting up again, I find the poses challenging now compared to "then" and realize the benefits from regular practice are significant. Anna encourage students to work at their own level and all levels can benefit from her postures. I think some prior yoga experience is needed, e.g. this might be too much for a first timer. I look forward to regaining the physical benefits I enjoyed when I did this series in the past. Her teaching is clear and precise. I love her work, great postures, excellent total body workout.
