Also, the guidance in these routines sounds a lot like I did at age 16 trying to talk to a toddler. Suddenly, rather than using all the simplest words I could think of to communicate, I became excessively technical, using words like "dexterity." In these routines we get references to obscure muscle groups or postures without any explanation at all, and sometimes they're quite important to the instruction in the routine.
Perhaps because I didn't have a chair, the routines I tried were also quite demanding. Not impossible to do and even embarrassingly simplistic at times, but challenging in the sense of their strength and endurance demands. I was discouraged quickly by how inept I felt at these "beginner" and "inflexible" poses. I needed a better lead-in and build-up to the little-muscle-stamina required for the poses, not just the flexibility. I think I would've been much better off with a standard yoga DVD, where at least you don't have the psychological pressure of the claim that this is for people who can't do anything...so why are you breathing so hard?
In short: Not relaxing. Not effective. Discouraging. Unpleasant. Bad flow.
Overall, I felt this was a failed purchase, and would not recommend it.
You can really choose longer or shorter practices with the AM/PM and Stress Relief DVDs. The short relaxations are great for unwinding when I've had a very long day and just want to take a pause but don't have the time and energy for a longer practice. The morning routines can also be just a quick 15 minutes to get moving or else an extended routine, 35 to 45 minutes.
I find that Barbara Benagh explains the movements and their benefits clearly, demonstrates the poses well, and gives me plenty of time to move from one pose to the next. I've been practicing for about a year and a half (but I kinda took some breaks in there, so it was not straight on through) and she and Rodney Yee are among the best for beginners and the less flexible. She shows you options and your final goal.
What was good: the instructor has a soothing voice, there are forty routines to choose from in varying lengths, and the ocean background is beautiful (but distracting for myself lol).

Much of it oriented towards relaxation, with lots of sitting and lying down poses, but I suppose that may be the "beginner" part of it.
Suggested uses of pillows, blankets and blocks make it easy enough for my inflexible husband to join in!
Great that it's divided into sessions of 10, 25, 30 mins, etc... because they you can pick and choose what you feel you have time for that day. Makes it easy for me to do yoga every day, even if it's only for 10 mins.
Find the Inflexible people DVD less useful, the routines are too short to give any real yoga effect. However, there are so many routines to choose from on these 3 DVDs, that there is bound to be something for everyone.
I've stopped going to the class I was going to with the male teacher with his over-complicated moves that he did just to show-off, and am having a brilliant time with these DVDs in my own home.
Only downside, they will not run in my DVD player, but do play on my Laptop.
Wish there was an "intermediate" version of these with the same teacher!
Have also started using the am and pm yoga dvd, very pleased with my purchase and the yoga exercises.
i do particularly like the yoga for nighttime of bed time section its very calm
