5.0 out of 5 stars Well done yoga dvd..... March 24, 2012
Format:DVD
I would say this dvd is "awesome", but Tara kind of turned me off of saying that when I heard her use it over and over in this dvd....that would be my only "con" on a really well put together dvd. I like yoga and I do it at least once or twice a week to keep flexible and to get that great "balanced" feeling that only yoga can provide to me. I have never done Tara Stiles, but have done Rodney Yee, Erich Schiffman, Yoga Zone, Brian Kest, Sara Ivanhoe & Shiva Rea. The thing about yoga is each teacher brings something unique and their own twist to this ancient practice, so it gives me a variety to fit my mood.

Tara's practice I would consider to be at an intermediate level and is about 50 minutes long. There are the normal, classic poses, chair, up dog, down dog, warrior one & two, twists, bridge/wheel, pigeon and many others. I thought this dvd flowed really well and I loved the twists, that really helped me relax along with, (as always) the deep breathing, which is the key in any yoga program. The dvd is beautifully shot, in a desert background and the music is calming without being too low-key or too overwhelming. Tara has three exercisers that demonstrate the poses and she points out form but she does not do the poses herself. For some people this kind of style is not what they may want, however I felt it really fit and it didn't bother me in the least. The poses were easy to follow and my hubby also joined in (he does yoga intermittently) and he loved the dvd and wanted to know if I would be purchasing it (highly likely). If you can do the routine without instruction (I personally find this difficult, as I don't know how one would know when to come out of down dog, etc), there is the option to do the dvd muted, with only the music and no instruction.

2.0 out of 5 stars Feels like someone just recorded a yoga class February 28, 2012
Format:DVD
I am really not a fan of this DVD. The instructor doesn't do the asanas herself, but assists the other people, correcting their postures. The main problems with this is that you have to constantly be looking at the tv to see whats going on. She corrects the womens postures but doesn't explain this really to the viewer in a way we can ensure we are doing it correctly. I find she also talks really fast and it just starts feeling like annoying chatter, its not relaxing. She doesnt engage with the viewer, it is just like you are watching a video of someone teaching a yoga class to their students rather than teaching you. The setting is nice and the music is quite relaxing but the way that Tara teaches on this DVD is really not for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars great yoga dvd! December 8, 2011
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this yoga DVD. I have not done the meditation so cannot speak to that yet.

Tara Stiles leads the "class" live rather than via voiceover. The class takes place outside with three participants.

It is 50 minutes long but the last 5 minutes is Savasanna.

Poses I remember are: thread the needle, warrior 2, warrior 1, low lunge, reverse warrior, chair, tree, squat, side planks, bridge, half pigeon and regular pigeon, and lots of twists. There are also a lot of chatarungas and upward facing dogs, downward facing dogs, and standing forward bends. There are a lot of variations and modifications mentioned. The music is very very mellow.

The flow is very nice but you do work up a little sweat. Some poses I noticed not included are: crow, warrior 3, pose of the dancer, boat, bow, eagle, balancing stick, shoulder stands, and plow.

I think this is much more doable than the new york sessions from Tara Stiles and I can't wait to try the other new one she came out with this past Tuesday. Thanks, Tara!

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult for anyone who really needs to lose weight. January 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
While the moves are basic and flow well, many of the poses would be difficult for anyone carrying much extra weight. It would have been helpful to have at least one bigger person demonstrating the poses. Some poses were modified, but having thin people do them doesn't help us bigger people very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars extremely comprehensive March 6, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't tell you that this yoga routine will help you lose weight, as I have only had the DVD a short while. I can tell you that the instruction is clear and the routine is well demonstrated, including revised versions for beginners. I can also say that the poses are easy enough for beginners, but can be taken to a very challenging level. Deepak Choprah is, as always, clear, concise, and miraculously calming in his explanations of the benefits of yoga and meditation. This is a very inspiring, and yet accessible program. Strongly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars When you want a yoga workout January 11, 2012
Format:DVD
I love doing yoga, especially when I am training for a marathon. I am even more in love with Power Yoga or the type of practice found in Tara's DVDs. I love that she treats the DVD as if you are in the room with her, walking you through everything making the adjustments on the helpers. It actually makes me feel like I am in class. I also love that I work up a sweat. I use these for my "strength/rest" days and its really helped me cut back on injuries. More here [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing value September 23, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't understand the less than stellar reviews on this product. I'm used to doing the yoga that Tara posts on youtube and I am certainly a beginner. I found this easy to follow, easy to hear, easy to understand. I also think the meditation section and the explanations of how yoga and meditation work and help you are wonderful! I was surprised at the length (i believe around 50 mins) and the additional features. I feel like I got a GREAT deal.
