Product Description

This hour is a cardio amping, fat-blasting and creatively fun flow with master instructor Sadie Nardini. Called a "rising star" by Yoga Journal, this top instructor will change the way you practice yoga. She's the founder of Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga, a style that puts the core back into all your yoga poses! You'll torch calories, reshape and tone your entire body, gain strength, flexibility, and replace any vigorous hour you could do at the gym with the healing, balancing and transformative power of yoga. If you love to move and are looking to get strong, lean and flexible in less time, all while having a blast--this DVD is for you!


A Rising Star --Yoga Journal

Nardini's method which stresses deep abdominal work is different from other vinyasa-related instruction. It s like hot yoga, except instead of heating the room you re heating from the core center, she explains. It s a sweaty, calorie-torching process. Nardini s emphasis is as much on feeling the burn as on firing up a useful worldview. She offers a contemporary spirituality that students can apply to real-life situations. And although her workouts are challenging, variations are always offered so that even first-timers won t feel left behind. --Time Out New York Magazine

You need look no further. Sadie's yoga is kick-your-booty, expand-your-heart amazing. --LiYana Silver, Student and Yoga Teacher, San Francisco

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Challenging December 8, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I just finished doing this dvd this morning. My first impression is that this a hard workout and the physical benefits are worth the effort. However since, power yoga is not my normal practice, I felt like I was missing something. Perhaps the spiritual aspect of the yoga. That aside, this a great yoga class to get you into shape. Lots of planks and up dogs AND lots, I mean lots of ab work.

Setting: Bare studio with concrete looking floors. Sadie is set up in front of a window with a heating vent beneath it. Very stark. She is on a black mat and is wearing black. When the camera pulls back, it is hard to distinguish her body from the mat.

Production quality: I read the back of the dvd cover and it said that you can pick from 2 views, one normal and one 3D where you can see the poses from different angles???? I didn't see that option on my dvd?? The camera was to the side of her throughout most of the class. Also when I first watched the dvd, I chose the beginners option. About 5 minutes into that I realized that there was absolutely no cuing, just wah wah wah commentary. I thought, oh no , another dvd to return to amazon! Something told me to go back to the menu and just press play. Aha, cuing, such as it is. Her cuing is often late and doesn't match the movement. I don't know how these dvds are made,but I am assuming the audio is added after the video while watching it. How hard is it to match up the instructions to the movement? Several times I had to crane my neck to see what was going on only to realize that she had moved on to another pose.

Wow factor: As I said physically, this was challenging. If you are a beginner as I am when it comes to vinyasa yoga, you will not be able to keep up. I wasn't able to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent vinyasa DVD October 6, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was first introduced to Sadie Nardini via her excellent youtube yoga videos. She has a phenomenal teaching style and her youtube videos were always excellent and extremely thorough. I always wondered why she didn't have a DVD out and then I found her Core Strength Vinyasa Yoga Power Hour! It was just released this year and I have to say, it is excellent!!! I think this is appropriate for beginners, intermediate or advanced yoga students. It really concentrates on and builds your core which is very important in yoga (and one of the areas where I am still a little weak). I can really feel my abs working during the DVD and definitely the next day! It moves at a nice pace, not too slow and not too fast. I am dripping in sweat after 60 minutes and I've been doing yoga for 2 years! It's a great workout!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Balance for Strength and Flexibility March 10, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'm a yoga instructor and stay at home mom-getting out of the house to practice at a studio is a luxury I'm rarely able to enjoy. I'm ecstatic that I found this practice-it challenges me and it's definitely not geared towards a "please everyone" mindset. This isn't a beginner's video-however, it should be doable for a person of moderate flexibility and some prior yoga experience.

I will definitely purchase this (after having just rented). I'm sure it will be my go to practice as I find myself with no sitter and a desire to deepen my practice in a very real way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable practice, right amount of challenge October 14, 2008
I bought this DVD after waching the free videos accessible through Sadies website. I've been practicing yoga from dvd's for just over a year. This dvd gives me everything I want from my practice- poses that are challenging but do-able (still breathing but definitely feeling like your getting a workout), narrators voice is easy to listen to (doesnt become annoying after 10 or more times watching). I used the beginners commentary the first time and found the advice useful. I'll be honest and say that I'm pretty comfortable with the first 40 minutes but I have to work up a little courage for the wall section- but I'm confident I'll get there in the end and Im happy there's something here that pushes the boundaries a bit more! I have been trying to convince my less yoga minded family to give this a go because I think they'd enjoy it without getting bored. Well worth the money- i feel fitter and stronger.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but inconsistent. January 29, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Being relatively new to yoga with my prior experience being years ago, I found this to be entirely too fast paced for my level - which is not the videos fault. Unfortunately, however, her words frequently don't line up with her movements and you're playing catch up most of the time which makes it hard to find a good rhythm. Not to mention that frequently when she's saying "Exhale" the movement she's doing on the screen is for "Inhale" and visa versa which makes it frustrating to try and follow especially if you're new like I am. It was good, but could be a lot smoother. I'm sure more advanced people will not have the same frustrations that I did from the videos inconsistencies. I will probably continue to use this video as I become more advanced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Special yoga DVD September 17, 2008
I'm a yoga audio and video junkie. I've done, watched and listened to many, many, many over the years.
About my yoga likes: My first yoga love is Ashtanga but I love a power vinyasa practice. I love to move and I love an instructor with great verbal cues, a strong but calming voice and great body control. Sadie Nardini fits the bill. I love the flow in this class. Her cues are impeccable and her use of her own body to demonstrate placement is something I've never really seen. It helps that she uses a voice-over technique because her demonstration of poses and movement is outstanding. The music is fun. Oh, and the core work is hard!
Buy this DVD - it really is different from the others and it's really enjoyable and a great workout.
