I have terrible back problems (two herniated discs) and have tried many things to relieve my pain and get my life back. However, it is the first time I've tried yoga. This is the perfect kit for someone who needs to start off really slow and easy. I did this video for about three weeks every day which helped me gain a lot of flexibility. Now I've started doing a more advanced video (Wai Lani yoga) which I couldn't have started out with but was well prepared for after a few weeks doing this Firm Yoga video.
I do not find the mat too thin, but I do have carpeting so that undoubtedly provides extra cushion. The block and strap are incredibly helpful at supporting a beginner in some of the more difficult stretches.
I would recommend this kit to anyone who wants to start doing yoga, but especially to those who have back pain and can't just jump right into a lot of the more difficult moves. It will get you ready for the next level and is easy enough that you won't be compelled to give up quickly.
