The music was nice, too. Very soft and did not over power her. The camera work was great and Tara's instructions, as always, as clear and easy to follow - I did not find the need to keep looking at the screen to see what she was doing. Her instruction is top quality and she always reminds you to go where you can.
Finally, this is what I've been looking for.
This is one Yoga DVD I did not find useful nor enjoyable. I am glad I did not buy it for a higher price.
It has the following basic yoga poses that I can recall: warrior 1 and 2 and 3, chair, downward dog, upward dog, plank, several twists, eagle, boat, dolphin, soulder stands, lunges, bridge, plow, wheel, bound angle pose, wide legged seated forward bend, standing forward bend, mountain, pigeon, and tree. It does not have crow or camel.
As one reviewer pointed out it does have the instructor say a lot whatever you want but that did not bother me. I do like that she is actually doing the video as she talks so she is with you rather than providing instruction with a voiceover clip which is sometimes difficult to match exactly with the movements. She is doing the video with you one on one. There are no other students or participants to watch but her. The setting is very simple and non-distracting and I don't remember noticing any distracting background music.
Some of the most challenging postures I remember were one where you have a variation off pigeon and you grab your back leg with your elbow and wrap both arms around it. Also there is a sequence where you do lunges and come to stand with your leg up and then back down to lunges without using your hands which I found harder than some of the other poses.
So bottom line: good video. Pros: easy to follow, good instructor, not super new-agey or mystical, poses challenging but not ridiculous, good price. Cons: no chapter selections, not quite as much sweating or increased heart rate as some other yoga videos I have, no other instructors or participants to show modifications.
I do recommend and think you will enjoy. I hope this review helps you.

I thought it would be harder. When Jane Fonda endorses something, I expect a certain level of work to happen. And I'm not a yoga expert, by any means. A little disappointing.Published 15 months ago by PhoenixRising
