This workout is 55 minutes long, and unlike many DVDs, it includes all the basic yoga poses. Lots of down dogs, planks, and forward folds. Also twists, lunges, boat moves, pigeon, tree, and more. The pace is more of a flow yoga with fairly limited holds of poses. The instructor gives very clear instructions and the moves are well captured on film. Jane Fonda (age 73) recently endorsed this and her other new workout videos based on having different needs as your body ages. Direct quote from print: ""I'm on this crusade to get older people out of the chairs, off their couches, moving in a way that's safe, easy and very doable even if they've never done it a day in their lives. It's never too late." This workout is WAY more challenging than this quote would suggest. I'm age 55, in good health, a yoga practioner for 3 years, and lifelong exerciser and I needed child pose 35 minutes in to this video! Having said that, I look forward to many more tries and working up to the full length challenge.

Tara provides the viewer with a very balanced yoga routine. The DVD has a much more extensive workout than can be found in her YouTube Video routines, which are much more abbreviated. In comparison, with a 55 minute runtime, Daily Yoga with Tara Stiles provides a much more vigorous workout. Although, throughout the flow of the exercise, Tara provides the viewer with alternative poses depending on your experience and capability. I wouldn't call this a beginner yoga video. Still, the level of difficulty is enough of a challenge to keep you from getting bored. I'm a little rusty, and haven't been challenging myself physically lately, so the routine kicked my butt. Nevertheless, the routine is reasonable enough that you don't have to worry about being tied up into a pretzel. Furthermore, Tara's demeanor and enthusiasm is encouraging, approachable and non-exclusive. This DVD is for everyone.

I was so pleased when I scanned this DVD last night to see the poses Tara uses. I did the DVD this morning and it was fantastic. The routine is not as strenuous as her other DVD, which I find to be very difficult. This one is much more my style. The DVD is about 57 minutes long. It is a perfect balance between stretching, relaxation, balance, and strength. Tara uses a few more traditional poses such as triangle and child's pose. I'm pleased that there were more times to refresh and rejuvenate throughout the routine though child's pose, standing and stretching arms over head, upward dog, etc. I think this DVD is the best yoga routine I've done in a very very long time. I will be doing this more often.
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.

Ms.Stiles is good at Yoga but not as a yoga teacher.This DVD is not for beginners or anyone needing modfications or demonstrations of modifications. I am 61 yr old and take three Hatha yoga classes per week: I am not new to yoga. I found her instructions often hard to hear (mumbling, eating her words) with little attention to modifications. Aside from her suggesting that you take a deep breath, there was little attention to the role of the breath in relation to the movement. I felt she was too relaxed/casual in her manner: assuming that the audience was actually using proper alignment with few cues regarding possible tricks to prevent common position errors. Savasana was very brief. I gave this DVD to my daughter who is a Certified Yoga Instructor. She hasn't given me her opinion yet but it would be interesting to hear what she thinks.
This is one Yoga DVD I did not find useful nor enjoyable. I am glad I did not buy it for a higher price.

This is about 55 minutes of actual yoga practices. I own about 200 exercise videos and did not find it super hard but parts of it were challenging. I did it for the first time yesterday and wanted to write the review while fresh on my mind.

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.
