As a Christian and exercise enthusiast, I'm very excited about yoga centered on scripture. I couldn't find reviews for Christian yoga specifically dealing with level. This DVD is a wonderful beginner DVD. Janine Turner recites scripture during each pose. Mary Cunningham leads and has a contageous sparkle in her eyes. The background is lovely and peaceful decorated with crosses & candles. Soft music plays in the background. I look forward to seeing more DVD's from this beautiful actress.

It's about time Christians were exposed to the wonderful benefits of yoga! I bought this DVD and have done the workout twice, and already am experiencing the positive changes. The workout itself is about 70 minutes long, beginning with centering and stretching, advancing to strengthening and action, and finishing with an exercise of balance and guided relaxation, with a peaceful backdrop of candles and crosses. The positions have been renamed to fit a Christian theme - Prodigal Son, Noah's Arch, Lazarus, and Holy Rollers, which made me laugh and was thoroughly enjoyable. Throughout we have beautiful Janine Turner (Maggie from Northern Exposure) reciting some of my favorite and most inspirational Scripture verses. The DVD is completely Christ-centered, and teaches us to worship Him not just with our minds, but bodies as well. I bought this DVD because I was worried that my prayer life was lacking. This is an excellent way to incorporate Christ's Word into your soul.

I noticed that Janine's abdomen showed at times, but didn't really find it to be offensive. She's wearing workout clothes. The workout moves at a quick pace, so it may be a good idea to view the DVD before attempting it, as is advised by the instructor. I didn't, however, and made it through just fine. One thing that could have been done differently was that occasionally, when a position is being held, the video briefly cuts completely to Janine reciting a verse. I wish they wouldn't have done that because a couple of times I looked to make sure I was doing the position right, but they weren't showing that.

All in all, I totally recommend this workout. You will not regret adding this positive workout to your busy life.

I've been doing yoga for many many years. This is bar none the best yoga video I have ever worked out to. It is very inspirational. I can't recommend it enough. I don't understand how anyone can give this a bad review. In order to do yoga properly one needs to have an open not a closed mind. This video opens the mind and the heart.

I bought this DVD because the one thing I don't like about yoga is hearing the "mantras' and "mudras," talking about my "energy being grounded to mother earth"...New Age stuff like that. But honestly, I'd rather put up with all of that than watch this silly "Christian" DVD. A woman dressed in a big, high collar robe, with candles and crosses and dim lighting, while she recites Scripture, all the while making cute, coy expressions to the camera! It was like watching someone taking the Lord's name in vain. And it wasn't just once in a while--it was constant...they show a yoga pose and then the camera switches to her--she was the star of the show more than the yoga poses. It was really creepy actually. I was embarrassed for Janine Turner. Even my kids were turned off--they wanted to exercise with me and they kept asking me, "Mommy, why is she showing off like that?" Each time the camera went back to her in her little spa area, my kids would look at me with an "isn't this creepy?" expression on their faces. I finally had to turn it off--could not get through it. The other lady with her should just make a video on her own--I liked what she did with the stretching.

Overacting, too much makeup, sleazy production trying to achieve a spiritual effect by whispering scripture in a haze was a real turnoff. The renaming of yoga positions was amateurish and results were silly rather than inspirational.

I am a mother of 2 young children. When I'm not running off to soccer practice, or a ballet recital I like to relieve some of my stress through exercise. I loved doing Yoga, but hated that I was bringing Eastern religions in to my home, and letting it infiltrate into my children. I found myself putting the videos on mute most of the time (which if you have ever done any kind of exercise tapes the fun is in the sound). When I caught wind that Janine Turner had just put out a Christoga exercise routine I had to have it. Being able to pop it into my DVD player, and do my workout with the sound on and the kids in the same room is the most rewarding time of my day. Its been like going to church, and the gym all in one!

Continuing with the 1600 year tradition of stealing from and then digesting indic traditions, this person poaches from an age old eastern practice centered around union with the divine. This is really a travesty and disgusting thievery which will be defended by evanjihadis under the guise of freedom and persecution etc (while they were committing persecution on the entire world). First they took our land and now our ideas. You are continuing in the tradition of the pilgrims who stole from the Native Americans, the missionaries who enabled the theft of native land in Latin America, stealing and appropriation of pagan traditions worldwide.
You are a pox on this world
