5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Simple Yoga Workout for Anyone January 23, 2010
By Maggie
This DVD is perfect for anyone to try, especially beginners. After practicing yoga a few years ago, I wanted to get back to it again and this DVD was a great choice. Before you get into the yoga workouts, you can watch the Learning Guide to learn all of the different poses, which is great if you never practiced yoga before. The instructors provide clear and simple directions during the workouts making it fun and easy to follow. The DVD has three different sessions you can participate in: AM Wake-Up (very energizing and a great way to start my day), PM Relax and Restore (helps me relax and unwind after a long day at work), and the Beginners' Class. The Beginners' Class is calming and relaxing, helps me clear my mind but also strengthens my core muscles. After the yoga session, you will be relaxed and full of energy. If you live miles away from one of the YogaWorks studios like me, this is the best way to learn and practice yoga by known and knowledgeable teachers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Detailed Hatha instruction for beginners w/a slow pace November 10, 2010
Many reviewers have written some great details about the content, so I'll just keep this brief.
Menu options:
AM wake-up w/Billy (10 min)
Beginner's w/Patty (45 min)
PM Relax & Restore w/Patty (10 min)
(Play All)
Learning Guide w/Patty (15 min)

You'll excuse me not knowing the full names of the instructors, they didn't give their last names, nor could I find the credits anywhere, not even at the end of any of the segments. I could not even find info on the yogaworks site.
Patty's teaching style -
She does tell you always when to inhale/exhale which is great, she tells you what areas each pose strengthens, she gives good postural instructions on how to do the poses correctly, but her teaching style & voice is the style of an aerobics or toning gym class. Her voice is not soothing, I believe she doesn't always give the Sanskrit names of the poses, nor uses terms that are more aligned with traditional teaching like Rodney Yee, etc. This style has a more watered-down, Western style which many people do like, but not myself. Adding to that that this is hatha style to the point you will be standing waiting in between each pose while she introduces them & each pose is separate from each other w/o flow except for sun salutations. The ending meditation is as another said, has her speaking about what to visualize with the same no-nonsense voice.
Billy's style -
Unfortunately he only gets 10 min. His style was more traditional in that he had you do chair & then right after go into a standing fwd bend which I always do together even if the instructor does not as it just doesn't feel right unless you do. He does grunt or sighs a few times, but the same as anyone would when feeling & enjoying the energy more better in the body when you feel the stretch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful for Beginners February 25, 2010
By Mallory
Being my first time attempting yoga, I would most definitely recommend this to anyone else beginning, but not confident enough to head into the yoga studio just yet. The instructors walk you through every step and provide modified (easier) versions of the exercises. The instructors are encouraging but not overly cheesy or obnoxious, which is gold in my book. The AM/PM exercises are only 10 minutes long, and when you are short on time, that is the perfect length to just get you going in the morning or relax you at night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yogaworks for Me! March 3, 2010
By D. Rowe
I heartily concur with the other reviews. This is an excellent video for beginners. The instructor effectively describes each posture, moves at an easy pace and offers modifications for people who are less flexible. I am a beginner and this video affirms & supports everything my instructor has been teaching in class. A great way to practice yoga at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful video for beginners March 15, 2011
By Amanda
I had never practiced any form of Yoga until purchasing this video - and now I am addicted to Yoga! I think that this is a great video for true beginners. It's been very effective for me to learn many of the basic poses used in other workouts. I enjoy Patty's direction. Her voice is very pleasant, she is encouraging without being obnoxious, and she fully explains and guides you through each pose. Even though it's slow paced and you move between a lot of poses that don't really string together, it's still great for a less intense workout. I rotate between this and the Body Slim video. Sometimes I feel like this one isn't enough for me anymore now that I am more used to Yoga, but it still leaves me feeling great and provides an amazing stretch for my entire body. I definitely recommend this video to all beginners. `

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners, but lots of talking! May 20, 2010
Verified Purchase
There are definite pros and cons to this disc. I wish I had rented it before buying it. I was looking for something that offered short morning and evening routines because I don't always have time to do a full yoga set, and ten minutes can make all the difference between a good day and/or a good night's sleep!

The problem I run into is that I'm not a yoga beginner, but I'm revisiting it after many years of being away. It is hard for me to find a disc that meets my needs because I want a short routine for workdays, and I want something that's not too challenging because I have to work back up to that, but I don't need my hand held through the whole set, either.

The tutorial is good. If you've never done any yoga at all, it is a great intro. I'd suggest watching her teach the move, then rewind and do the move with her, and repeat for each new pose she teaches.

The AM routine... ok, I like all the poses they use, and the flow is good. The instructor, Billy, I just can't take him seriously. He keeps making all these noises like the dessert scene from 'When Harry Met Sally' and instead of breathing I wind up giggling. It's hard to keep your balance in a tree pose when you're trying not to laugh your @ss off! I think a little more time could have been granted to the final meditation at the end of the routine. I know it's only ten minutes, but I could have spent a little less time in the chair pose and a little more time reflecting on my upcoming day. That might just be personal preference.

The PM routine I do like. I think the instructor is great, and the series has a great flow to it. I have two complaints. One- there's way too much talking. When you're trying to relax and get ready for sleep, your mind can be distracted by the verbal onslaught.
