On the other hand, though, she really does speed through this routine. Her instructions are so brief and moves are so quick that I frequently have to look up to see what she's doing, and by the time I figure it out, she's on to the next move. So the guidance is definitely lacking, as some people have already pointed out. Of course, you can learn a routine by playing the video again and again. But I personally think a teacher should guide her/his students more--and I think that teachers that do this are always respected more by their students.
I also sympathize with the people who feel that this is too focused on working out and not so much so on yoga basics. When I do vinyasa yoga, I do like to feel like I've gotten some workout benefit from it. So I'm okay with that part. But I also like the teacher to warm me up well with lots of sun salutations and, by the same token, to use gradual, traditional yoga cool-down techniques to wind things down. You don't really get that sense with Kathryn's workout. It's just go, go, go...done.
So my verdict is that if you're looking for a quick, intense vinyasa routine, then you'll probably like this. But if you're a bit more of a traditionalist in terms of your yoga, you're probably not going to enjoy this video so much. Look instead to programs from Shiva Rea, Janet Stone or Sadie Nardini (who in my opinion blend the two worlds of yoga fundamentals and intense vinyasa workout much better).
-Multiple different workouts- putting the beginner and authentic flow together is sure to challenge even the advanced intermediate student
-Unique flow- There are the staple sun salutations peppered in, but there were many poses or variations on poses that were fresh and fun
-Arm balances- I've been looking to expand my arm balances beyond Crow Pose and King Pose; KB is an obvious fan of them and thus challenges you to do some difficult foundation work such as Dolphin Pose
-Time- this is great for me- I can do 25, 45, 70 or 75 minutes of yoga
-Swerves dangerously close to faux-mysticism but then basically laughs at herself and brings it back down to earth
-Archer sequence; I am an archer who shoots both compound and long bow so I could mightily appreciate her archer's flow (in her interview she says her favorite goddess is Artemis of the hunt and moon, who also is close to my heart)
-If you are without ANY yoga experience, I do not recommend this...even with the pose breakdown section. There are not enough breathing and alignment cues in the sequence. I recommend Sarah Ivanhoe's beginner DVDs and her Crunch Candlelight DVD to get a more gentle exposure to poses, alignment and breathwork...after getting comfortable with that, I recommend Kristin McGee's Power Yoga (not the MTV one though) to go further into the practice
-Feels very rushed at times...I was left in Chaturanga wondering how the heck she'd gotten to Reverse Warrior so quickly.. however, when she slows down and DOES take her time, her cues are very good
-Arm balances....yeah, I'm not hopping straight into a handstand. You do you KB, but I'll just stay here in Downward Dog Split.
-Too much babble at times when she could be giving breathing and alignment cues
Recommend?: Yes, with caution to advanced beginners through advanced intermediates with a solid sense of personal limits looking for a fun, challenging and aerobic vinyasa practice
