5.0 out of 5 stars Great Selection of Workouts, Great Value March 21, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have a few Yoga VCR tapes. This is my first DVD. I am pleased that it makes good use of options DVD provides - the ability to provide menus and skip forwards and backward easily.
There are several workouts for beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Within each of these categories, there are further selections for long and short workouts that are either general practices or have specific goals (body areas, aches & pains, etc).
I have not done an advanced workout yet. I was pleased that in an intermediate workout there were 2 poses I have not seen before on a tape or in a class. The poses were clearly explained and it was easy to follow the tape. The instructor, JJ, often shows or tells you about different ways you can modify poses to suit your body's ability (or inability!).
I have a 2 year old. I absolutely love that there are so many workouts to choose from that I can always find one to fit in the free time I have while she naps, or early in the morning, or while she's playing with Dad. No more saying, 'Well, guess I have to do it tomorrow' just becuase I don't have an hour free to complete one of my tapes. Sure, I know, I could just make my own workout up, but it just doesn't happen.
Some reviews complain about the black screen between poses - that it is disruptive and not conducive to flow. I don't have a problem with it. The first time you do a workout you will notice it. The second time through, you begin to see ways to connnect the poses on your own - for example - pose one might end in downward facing dog pose, and pose 2 begins with it - so you just hold it an extra second. In general, holding the end of a pose until the next one begins seems to work OK.
It seems that on the shortest workouts this doesn't always hold true - they don't always flow well.

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice dvd to learn and grow with April 21, 2003
Format:DVD
I am a beginner in the wide world of yoga. I took a class this semester with an instructor who really views yoga as a way of life, and his gentle approach got me hooked. Up until now I've been sticking with supplementing the class with the Living Arts AM & PM yoga set which is fantastic, but when the class started I wanted to get something longer to sort of replace it. I chose this and could not have done better.
The dvd is divided by levels and times, so there is ample oportunity for plenty of variety. I love the instructor encouraging and understanding manner "Go as far as your legs want to go today" etc. They also show modifications with props if you are less flexible.
Understand that the way the variety is created is each pose or series is put on the dvd as a separate chapter and then when you chose a routine you get a preprogramed set of poses&series, so it is not a set of individually created workouts but rather different mixtures from a common bag. However there are enough poses there that it does not feel repetitive.
All in all if you were to purchase one yoga dvd, I would highly recommend this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great way to learn yoga March 27, 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Thank you JJ Gormley for a wonderful yoga product! I can't get to classes very often and have missed the details and insight that come from a true yogi. These workouts don't just take you through a series of poses, they break it all down and explain what you're doing and should be doing. Yes, it is slower then most, but I like that. I feel like I'm really learning yoga and not just doing it. I also love the variety this dvd gives you - choose your level, choose your purpose, choose the length etc. Before you choose a yoga tape, do some homework on the different types of yoga. If you're interested in Iyengar style and really want to learn to practice yoga, not just "do" yoga, you will not be disappointed with this dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nobody's perfect, but this is a high quality product November 7, 2003
Format:DVD
It is interesting to read what other people have said about this DVD. I agree with some of the comments from reviewers who have given it fewer stars but I gave it five stars because I use it a lot and because I think it deserves a five star rating for being a highest quality presentation and very useful. I do not recommend it for rank beginners. Anyone interested in yoga should try to take a class or workshop from a certified instructor and not just rely on videos. If you do teach yourself from videos though, get several. Living Arts (now known as Gaiam) has some good ones. This DVD is a good supplement to a do-at-home yoga regime.

You can use this video for short or long programs. It's easy to select a program. Some of them target specific areas of the body (for example neck, arms and abs, spine, feet, hands, legs and hips). There are a lot of different postures covered in the video, some I've never seen anywhere such as hand or eye or feet exercises and, one of my favorites, the seven easy pieces. This DVD has headstands on it which none of my other ones do. There are lots of seated, stretching postures and standing postures. Sun salute, moon salute, and heroes sequence are covered, but only gone through once on each side. You can repeat them if you're quick with the remote, though, and don't mind hearing all of the same instructions over again.

There are a couple of meditation segments that she talks you through. These are kind of nice if you don't mind being talked to during meditation. Also there are special exercise sequences for "that time of the month" which is a pleasant feature.

There aren't many instructions about breathing. If you are a beginner you probably won't miss them.

Good video - gentle and clear instructor, lots of good combinations. Not a substitute for a live class (what video is?) but close enough for times you can't get to a class.
