The first segment involves standing pose preparation, with crescent poses, warrior one, and warrior three. It's challenging and has plenty of invigorating vinyasas, including "yoga push-ups".
The second is what I consider the "yogalates" segment of the DVD, with utkatasanas and an abdominal workout section. You can definitely feel the burn in your abs during this segment, although I find myself wishing it were shorter each time I do it because it's like doing crunches - pretty boring.
The third section contains more standing poses and yoga push-ups, definitely a heart rate booster. Warrior two and side-angle pose are featured most prominently here. It also has a vertical splits challenge that I like because none of the other DVDs in my rotation contain anything like it.
There are no twisting postures or inversions, which would be my main complaint. Also notably absent is triangle pose. There is a short segment for backbends (wheel), which I also wish were a bit longer.
Overall, I enjoy this DVD. The music is not bad as far as yoga DVDs go, and the instructor's voice does not annoy me. I find I get a good workout, which is the main purpose of power yoga.
As for what I have to say here: I do yoga for a myriad of reasons. I love to feel strong, fit and limber. I have a racing mind, anxiety and the urge to compulsively "over think" just about everything that occurs in my life. I am enamored by the spiritual and harmonious emotions that stir within me when the soothing voice of an exceptional yoga teacher explains the beauty of life to me. I am infatuated with the strength that this practice is building within my body, mind and spirit. I have discovered, after many years of sporadic practice and a solid year of daily dedicated practice, that I truly do take the ujjayi breathing off of my mat and into the world, and it truly DOES get me through rough spots. Ashley Turner, along with Kathryn Budig, has changed my life. Her Master's in Psychology radiates through her expertise on the body and yoga. The blend is intoxicating and I literally hear the words she says on these DVDs echo in my mind throughout my days. I constantly remind myself, "The body is an instrument, not an ornament," which is a Turner quote that I sometimes want to tattoo on my forehead. It's that good.
Now, about the DVDs (I own the trio of the "frequently bought together" amazon recommended DVDs). The workouts = 100% score. They are challenging, I break a sweat, and yet there are resting poses to remember WHY we're here, WHY we've come to out mats, WHAT our intention is within our own practice. Power Yoga is challenging, I am often needing to rest by the last warrior pose sequence and I practice yoga everyday. Be patient with yourselves, I look forward to the day when I can power through this DVD and need not rest - though, as they say, everyday our practice changes.Read more ›

It really opened up my hips. She is great about verbally explaining her alignment so you don't get the pose wrong and hurt yourself. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Amazon Customer

Like the video, but a little to intense for a beginner but will try not to quit. I have taken a break and looking into a class/video that is a little simpler. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Amazon Customer
