There are no guarantees, but for those who work the program with consistency and dedication, The Biggest Loser: The Workout--Weight Loss Yoga's promise that "pound-shedding results" can be achieved in six to eight weeks is no idle claim. Led by instructor Bob Harper, this 55-minute regimen offers three separate yoga workouts, sandwiched between 5-minute warm-up and cool-down sections; a menu option gives users the opportunity to practice the workouts in any order or quantity. The first and longest of the trio is a vinyasa series (a vinyasa is a connected sequence of yoga asanas) focusing on core strength via a variety of lunges, stretches, downward- and upward-facing dog, standing poses (triangle, warrior one and two, extended right angle), plank, and more; the second focuses on abs work and backbends; and the third is a more standard gym-type workout that can be done with or without hand weights. Make no mistake about it: much of this work is quite rigorous, and even experienced yogis and yoginis can expect to be challenged. But Harper's instruction is friendly and encouraging, with frequent reminders about the importance of the breath ("as long as you're breathing, you're perfect"), variations provided for those not yet up to speed, and opportunities to rest. Perhaps best of all, instead of gorgeous bodies in designer outfits doing perfect poses, we're watching mortals who are not all buff, flexible, and strong (some can't even touch their toes) and whose form is at times less than perfect. These folks don't make yoga look easy, because it's not. But anyone with a serious yoga practice--and this is a good place to start--knows that its benefits are both profound and, if you stick with it, permanent. --Sam Graham

Product Description

You've witnessed extraordinary weight loss on NBC's hit show. Now you can get with the program and achieve pound-shedding results in just 6-8 weeks with the transforming power of yoga!

Great Yoga DVD, especially for those new to yoga. I've had a good handful of yoga classes and my husband's had a few. We both really benefit from Bob's instruction, particularly on form. It's one thing to say, "keep your back straight," or "make sure you watch your form," but Bob instructs as if you've never had a yoga class in your life, which is good--both for newbies and those of us who aren't experts yet. He actually shows you what good knee alignment looks like. Or tells you how it should feel. I agree with one of the reviewers that it's a little awkward (okay, a lot awkward) to be in a yoga pose and have to look up at the TV, but that's really the same as being in class--I would have to look at an instructor to see what's going on sometimes--but after a week or two of doing this, you get the hang of it and know what to do.

The BEST part of the Biggest Loser videos are the interactive menus so you can select what kind of workout you want to do. What an AWESOME idea! Finally! Someone helps me cut out the stuff I don't need or let's me build a longer workout and it plays exactly how I selected it.

And hey, if you're a dude, you'll like this because Bob leads the session. It's not just for girls. (And not just for skinny girls either.) Besides, there's none of that swirly yoga-ish, indian flute music with perfectly carved bodies flawlessly moving from pose to pose. It's basic instruction (with light background music), and you see the other participants (past BL contestants) make mistakes along the way just like most of us do when we're taking a yoga class. So what if you put your right leg in the air when everyone else puts up their left. That's what I love about this DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It !!!! September 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I hesitated buying this DVD because as a yoga teacher, good routines are hard to find. This is the way I was trained back in the 1960's; holding the poses to build strength and stamina.
I am pleasantly surprised and have put it in my workout rotation. You learn yoga better when you hold the poses; if you learn from a moving flow you tend not to watch your form as
well. If your thinking of trying yoga, this would be a good place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult but totally worth it January 10, 2012
By Megan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I did this workout for the first time last night. The DVD has 5 options to customize:
Warm Up- 5 min.
Yoga Level 1- 20 min.
Yoga Level 2- 15 min.
Yoga Level 3- 10 min.
Cool-down- 5 min.

You select what you want to do from a menu and then proceed. I did the warm-up, level 1 and cool-down. It was extremely difficult (I have done quite a bit of yoga but I'm currently not in great shape), but difficult in a good way. I felt as if Bob, the instructor, was really pushing me, but also giving me options to modify if needed.

I liked that there were people of all different sizes and levels working-out. It made me feel like I was in an actual class.

It was traditional yoga, but my heart-rate was up and I felt I got a good work-out. You also have the option to turn off Bob so that you are just working out visually and with music in the background. The great thing is, unlike other DVDs, I didn't find this cheesy or annoying at all.

I think this is great for the yoga beginner to the advanced learner. Do be prepared to get a great workout, though!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard, but effective...Overweight people welcome. June 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I ordered this DVD not knowing if it would work for me or not. It has and does. I am very overweight, though I've lost 50 lbs, I still have a ways to go. I started this DVD not having any sort of exercise experience (hence the being overweight part). I have since started going to a gym, but alot of people who have a weight issue, are nervous or possibly embarrassed to enter any sort of public gym or classes. This was me. It starts off slowly,meaning stretching, but builds up quickly. Some of the moves I couldn't do for a long while. Don't beat yourself up. The fact that you're trying is awesome! You will get there soon enough. I was sore for the first few times afterwards. Soak in a hot bath with epsom salts and apply peppermint oil in some sort of carrier oil(olive oil, almond oil, etc)on your sore spots and you'll slowly get used to it. I like Bob Harper's enthusiasm.He's clear in speech and helpful. He's not annoying like most exercise hosts can be. Don't get me wrong, I hated his face at the end of each session, but he pushes you without you wanting to shoot out the TV just to stop seeing his face. I had no idea what I was doing at first, gave up, walked back into the room and kept going. If I can do it, you can as well. Good luck and I hope this helped someone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Want to lose inches? May 7, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This customizeable workout will make you sweat. The DVD is good for beginners and experts alike. There are enough Big Losers on the DVD so beginner modifications and expert modifications are depicted with each exercise. I have been using this DVD for about 2 months now and have lost 3" around the waist, 2" on biceps, and 4" on my thighs.

5.0 out of 5 stars I did it. March 18, 2009
Format:DVD
I started Biggest Loser boot camp and the Biggest Loser Weight Loss Yoga. I alternated days with Friday's off. Instead of spending 2 weeks on each level I spent 4 weeks on each level. I also designed my eating plan %100 out of the Biggest Loser Family Cookbook. After 12 weeks of this I went from 261lbs to 226lbs. It works, that's all I have to say.

This is tough! But it's not too hard. There are some modifications in case you cannot do something. You sweat and you build muscle, plus there is room to move up. Read more

Weight Loss Yoga levels
Yes you do level one first. You add them on, so in the end you will be doing all three levels. 45minutes plus the 10 minute cool down and warm up.

Combine w/ 30 Day Shred?
my two cents is to alternate the DVD's like the Biggest Loser Workout and Fat Free Yoga with the 30 day shred. If you want a lifestyle change then Fat Free Yoga will help you start your inner journey which is the most important aspect of changing your life. The meditative aspect along with the... Read More

calories burnt with biggest loser yoga dvd
I am not sure the total calories - but if you are looking to lose inches and weight - I would recommend P90X. Its a great program that mixes cardio, strength training and flexibility. It also has a nutrition plan.
