I really like this workout.

I have some basic yoga experience and while I don't know if this routine would be feasible for a real beginner, I would recommend it to anyone else.

I approached this video with a great deal of skepticism. First, I'm not a fan of the Dummies series; second, Chris Freytag, while a very reputable fitness instructor, doesn't have too many other yoga releases; and three, her training comes from YogaFit, an organization I take (some) exception to. However, I thought I'd give this a shot anyway (after it had been out on the market a few months) and was pleasantly surprised to find a well-done "real" yoga video that did indeed feel aerobic.

The workout is about 37 minutes long and starts with a "warmup". You start with Mountain, then progress into a mini-vinyasa of Cat/Cow (standing), Sunflower (first bending straight, then to each side), Sun God/Sunflower, twisting Forward Bends, and then finally Mountain/Chair/Tree. These are done at least four times, and in some cases eight. You don't stay in most postures for more than one breath (sometimes just one inhale or exhale), so the postures really do start to get your heartrate up. Then Freytag moves onto a variation of the Sun Salutation (using Cobra instead of Upward Dog), a Warrior vinyasa (Warrior 1, 2 and 3) and ends the standing portion with an Extended Angle vinyasa (beginning in Warrior 2, then moving to Extended Angle, then circling the arm). Again, these are repeated at least 4 times, sometimes for 2 "sets". Although there is some bending at the waist (bringing your head below your heart, which is contraindicated when you significantly raise your heartrate), there isn't nearly as much as in, say, the 5 Sun Salutations you might do in a traditional Ashtanga or Power Yoga release. Therefore my heart rate climbed, but I didn't feel dizziness.

I have never done any type of yoga before, and I am no gym junkie either, but I did not find this workout too hard to follow...just don't expect to completely hang with it at first - you have to get to where you know what's coming next, and some parts will always be easier than others. Challenging, yes, but just enough. I like the pace and it really does get your heart rate up. Chris is a bit of cheesy robot but I like her. Great routine!

I'm on the cusp of turning 50 and am on a crusade to regain my health through diet, exercise, and meditation. I practiced yoga in my 20s and was unsure how I would do nearly 30 years later.

I became inspired after hearing Mariel Hemingway speak at a women's luncheon. I bought both of her books and got her yoga series "Yoga Now" with Rodney Yee. I love that series but then found this DVD. I am a "Dummies" fan so was thrilled to come upon this workout.

I alternate between the 3 DVDs (Yoga Now has two DVDs - one shorter and the other nearly an hour long) - depending on how much time I have.

I must admit that I think this is my favorite of all the yoga DVDs I've viewed. One of the main things I like about this DVD is it gives you a good warm up and cool down. So many of the other DVDs I've experienced that say they're for beginners just plain aren't. They jump right in with fairly complex poses with virtually no explanation.

Chris may appear a bit robotic to some but I think she is a good instructor. I highly recommend this DVD to anyone interested in a great aerobic yoga workout!

As a person who is not experienced at doing yoga, I found the dvd hard to follow. It is fast paced and I would recommend watching it first before doing it. On the other hand, I'm sure once I learn the routine, it will be a fun and effective workout.The problem is, there is no beginners routine. Also it would have helped if she showed how to do the pose first, then had you do it. Overall, the instuctor is motivational. Just found it hard to keep up with pace first time around, and had to skip second phase because I am out of shape. I will however continue to try and write a new review after I start to see results.

I got this DVD for only $9.99 and good thing too because if I had paid anymore I'd be pretty upset. The DVD isn't as easy to follow as it claims. Perhaps it might be easy to follow for someone at a higher level of experience but not for beginners. On top of that the way Chris Freytag grins through out the entire workout is reminiscent of a robot.

I have been yoga for years ; in fact, I go to a yoga class once a week while doing this and I must say for 30 minutes you certainly get your money's worth. I dont have a lot of time nor do I care for yoga that is complex or too fast. This is just right for me in the mornings. it wakes me up and I didnt have to review it before I started. the moves are that simple. tried it once from a friend and I love it. i want my own copy. The dummies series is the best for getting quick and easy to follow information. Keep them coming ....

This is a great exercise dvd for those of us who want to work out without hurting ourselves. It may not be the one for fitness fanatics but if you are fairly fit, just not in the best shape of your life, and wanting to get back some of what you've lost, this is a good one to start with. I've been checking out workout dvd's at the library to prevent wasting money on those I'm not ready for, or am uncomfortable with. This one is a winner, it's not too easy, not too hard. The movements are fast enough to work up a sweat and challenging enough to prevent boredom. Just the fact that the trainer is not annoying is a plus.
