Bryan is a great instructor, and has a great, calming presence. He provides constant tips (pull your belly to your spine, tighten up your back leg, etc.) which I find very helpful. He also gives basic instruction as to what you should be thinking of in each pose (front leg at a 90 degree angle, back leg straight, belly pulled in, etc.) -- again, very helpful. It also shows him doing each pose so you know what it should look like. It's not a beginners DVD but if you have some background in yoga you'll be able to keep up. The only real criticism I have is he doesn't use the Sanskrit names for the poses. I like to know the true names of the poses as I'm doing them (I can't remember all of them off the top of my head), so I wish he did that. Otherwise, I'm very pleased.
The issue is the DVD structure. These are three 50-minute segments. There are no breaks or scene markers. There's no easy way to repeat if you need to re-view a pose. There's no way to skip over the 5 minute lecture-commentary at the very beginning of each workout. All of those could and should have been fixed.
Secondarily, as noted, the instructor can be annoying, especially the hundredth time you hear "You have to be where you're at, because that's where you are!" But I've never found a DVD whose instructor isn't annoying.
When I first bought this video it was my first time doing Yoga so I struggled for a while trying to figure out what was going on with the poses. Initially I found it a bit annoying but after a while I came to appreciate it. I was on the beginner level for a long time and if it didn't flow like it did, if had constant teaching moment stops, I probably would have become annoyed with that too and never continued the pursuit. If you buy this and it's your first time, don't get annoyed that you're spending so much time trying to figure out a pose instead of being in it because it will probably take a few times until you can actually stay in the pose anyway.
After 8 years with this DVD and a trial of a plethora of other random products, I definitely recommend this one.
