Editorial Reviews

Create a positive - and permanent - shift in your life. Filmed live at the fifth annual Yoga Journal San Francisco Conference, this unrehearsed 90-minute program captures the magnetism and wisdom of one of America's great instructors and will help you establish a strong foundation for your yoga practice. In this basic, flowing workout, you will discover how proper yoga technique and mindfulness can power your practice and empower your life. One of the leading yoga innovators in America, Baron Baptiste popularized the style of yoga known as Power Vinyasa Yoga, which is designed to create heat in the body and stimulate energy flow. He is the owner and director of two Baptiste Power Yoga Institutes in Massachusetts and is the author of three books. The DVD includes: 36 poses, including Sun Salutations A & B, standing poses, backbends, forward bends, twists, and seated poses - fundamentals of effective alignment - stand-alone chapters, allowing you to start the class at any point - in depth interview with Baron Baptiste - and valuable resource materials for teachers.

Customer Reviews

This DVD is a great introduction to power yoga.
Cobra Chick
It is a simple, slow, power yoga class with a detailed focus on alignment.
YogaGirl
The initial poses weren't bad, but he wouldn't stop talking.

"Foundations of Power Vinyasa Yoga" is part of Yoga Journal's Great Instructors series, a series of DVDs filmed at the annual Yoga Journal Conference in San Francisco. It features Baron Baptiste, a well-known yoga instructor of power yoga. Here he presents an 85-minute class which emphasizes form and foundation in each posture. Throughout the practice, Baron frequently mentions the spiritual benefits of each pose, and he focuses on the core through frequent reminders to engage uddiyana bandha.

Baron generally leads the class from the middle of the room, but he occasionaly walks around the room making adjustments along with his three assistants. The video also features a "yoga demonstrator" on a dais at the head of the class for easy reference. This DVD is well-chaptered, and the introduction suggests that each chapter can stand alone as a shorter practice if necessary. The chapters are as listed below; I have added in approximate times as well as brief descriptive information.

Warm Up (11m)--The practice begins in child's pose and then moves on to a slow, meticulous setup of down dog. After coming to a standing forward bend and taking a few sun breaths, this segment ends with three chants of OM.
Surya Namaskar A (5m)--A slow sun salutation flow with longer holds of plank and down dog.
Surya Namaskar B (28m)--Here Baron begins to move fairly quickly through the vinyasa flows. He provides detailed instruction for warrior 1 and also includes crazy dog (moving into a backbend), side plank, crescent lunge, and prayer twist.
Standing Poses (24m)--Postures here include several standing forward bend variations, standing splits, airplane, knee to side, eagle, tree, warrior 2, and reverse warrior. Very fast vinyasa flows are performed between some of the postures.

I bought this dvd as part of the 3 great instructors package. This is the first dvd that I've done from the set and I have to say that it was just what I needed. Firstly, I'm a kundalini yoga person. I gave up my vinyasa practice 5 years ago to practice ky. Anyone who has fallen in love with kundalini yoga, will know that it sort of takes over your entire life and other types of yoga are unfulfilling. However, in the last months or so I have felt the need to go back to hatha yoga and include it more into my daily practice. This Baptiste dvd is a great place to start. It is a simple, slow, power yoga class with a detailed focus on alignment. Baron as usual, talks alot about the physical and spiritual benefits of yoga. This is a great class for beginners or experienced yogis who want to slow down their practice. The poses are:
* Sun salutes A & B
* Flipping out of downward dog to 3 legged upward bow or full bow, if possible
* Side plank
* reverse warrior
* cresent twist
* forward bend twist
* standing twisted arms and legs
* tree
* modified standing hand to toe pose. (knee bent)
* bow
* half camel (loved this one!)
* hip opener, leg crossed on standing bent knee.
* one legged table top.
* half boat
* modified shoulder stand. block underneath hips.

I may have missed a pose or two, but this a class that anyone can do. I am hatha yoga rusty and I had a nice sweat going. The last pose shoulderstand was like a meditation as Krishna Das was playing in the background. The class ended with Baron telling the class to love the world, it needs it. I felt myself smile. Baron is a great teacher and even though the class was basic it was totally enjoyable.

Technically, the production was very good. Kudos to Yoga Journal!

Understand when purchasing this DVD that the emphasis is on the "Foundations" not the "Power Vinyasa". This DVD is big on explaining the positions more so than moving through them. So if you are new to yoga and need instruction on postures, then this is for you - the explanations are great. However, if you are a regular power yoga practitioner, the explanations will get in the way of a good vinyasa style workout for you.

This DVD was recommended to me by a friend who has been doing yoga longer than I have, and has even attended a conference or two. I have taken classes locally and always enjoy the atmosphere of a class versus being home alone and doing yoga. Baptiste's DVD really puts me in the class because he guides me through every position, making sure my feet, hands and fingers are where they should be, how they should feel, and reminds me to breathe as I bring my spine home... He continually talks to his audience throughout the session, and one cannot help but feel very present and in his class right there! I really needed a DVD like this one if I wanted to do yoga at home because I am the type of "yogie" who needs to be guided otherwise I tend to "daydream" about this and that - not fulfilling the meditative purpose of yoga. He keeps me on track.. Plus at the end of the DVD Baptiste talks about how he uses yoga in his life, and what it means to him. He is fascinating; everything he says makes so much sense - well, to me anyway. This DVD is like an hour and a half of not only a full body massage, but a mind clearing, posture enhancing, spiritual journey that gets better every time I use it, and it hasn't lost its appeal yet! I don't believe it ever will. Namaste...
