Editorial Reviews

Asanas are an ancient blend of movement, meditation and mindful breathing that will help stretch and massage the organs of the body to keep them fit and increase the flexibility of the joints. The degree of good health is judged by the flexibility of the body and its capacity to prevent irrevocable damage to the functioning of various bodily systems. Yoga asanas when practiced on a regular basis will help in maintaining this level of fitness. Yoga asanas can be practiced by all age groups and can help in keeping the body and mind alert well into old age. These asanas were developed thousands of years ago and have evolved over centuries. This program covers over thirty-seven asanas including: Padmasana, Tadasana, Trikonasana, Ardha Chakrasana, Supta Vajrasana, Sarpasana, Vipareeta Karani, Meditation and Savasana.

When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

I'd recommend you watch this for yourself, before giving any credence to the two sarcastic one-star reviews posted here.

This is a GREAT introduction to Yoga for beginners. Which is ME. If you're an expert Yogi Master, I can't speak to how much this will mean to YOU. But if you're interested in learning how to properly strike Yoga poses, this is terrific.

Speaking for myself, I find this an indispensable guide. No, it doesn't have "Hollywood" written all over it. But if you're interested in Yoga instruction, I doubt you could do any better than this. Why?

1. Instructions are clear and demonstrated very well, giving you time to strike a proper pose, without dragging on for an eternity. Need more time? Hit the pause button.
2. Best yet, after each pose and its instruction, you'll learn precisely what health benefits that particular pose offers. So if, for example, you're wanting to increase blood flow to internal organs OR improve spinal elasticity, it will be very clear just which pose is most advantageous to your area of need. It truly and clearly helps you understand which poses will help you the most (and which to avoid, if you suffer from any health conditions like high blood pressure, hyperthyrodisim, etc.). VERY helpful info!
3. Poses are named in Hindi AND English. Personally, I like this explanation of the meaning of the name of each pose.

Give it a try before you judge it! I give it an A+ for clarity and utility!

I have something (from 2005) from netflix that sounds a lot like this dvd. (Now that I read the review, it IS this dvd).
Actually, it is GREAT for those of us who really
want to see a pose - THE ASANAS- demonstrated and perhaps follow along. I did not find this "condescending " or "snobbish" at all.- as the "two star reviewer" alleges.

So many yoga classes - in studios- good studios- as well as very good private fitness centers go with the same old same old - warm ups, some vinyasa , a few standing poses, a balance pose, a couple twists, and then into savasana- it is REFRESHING to see the actual variety of poses here , along with their Sanskrit names, SLOWLY DEMONSTRATED AND NARRATED. Pretty much NOBODY is
going to measure up to this little elite and cliqueish band of yoga celebrities- Yee, Rae, Corn- who I find so tiresome anyway-
yet this DVD shows ACTUAL NORMAL PEOPLE , in modest clothing (!) who are nevertheless incredibly able , posture perfect, and
flexible- they actually have normal fit bodies instead of something that looks like extreme bodybuilding was involved.

Hatha yoga was meant to come to us primarily through the poses, and this dvd does a fine job of doing just that. This is also an excellent resource for teachers who sincerely wish to help their students and clients learn poses without having to swan about in front of a room all the time.

These asanas are perfect for me, challenging but not impossible. Yoga originated in India, so I guess I kind of like being instructed by people from India. lol I also like the information on how certain poses help relieve different ailments.

I don't understand why the genre is labeled as horror, its almost insulting. I like the video because I like learning what all the poses do for me, as I was not educated in Yoga by a Yogi anywhere, ever. It is a practice my friends encouraged me to try because of my physical ailments. Yes, it is most different but that doesn't mean its horrible. I enjoy documentaries of some very boring materiel so maybe that is why this isn't the worst film ever made. It is definitely can be a challenge to "watch" so I close my eyes, but I get posture in the pose and its purpose for my body and how long I should hold it which I am glad the poses are not held for upwards of 10-15 mins for some of them.

Play:
First is the credits, then the menu. Menu is split into Manu A - c each contain 12-13 asanas/yoga poses. You cannot play it all, you must play each one separately which means going back to the menu after each pose is demonstrated. Each one is 2-4 min long. Only the Sanskrit name is given on the menu & pronounced during the demonstration, never the English name.
All poses are ones on most beginner yoga workouts such as mountain, fish, warrior 1, 2 sitting spinal twists, locust, sitting fwd bends, standing back bend, pyramid, modified boat, bow, triangle, side angle, twisted triangle, hero, child's, camel, shoulder stand, wide angle standing fwd bend, single sitting wide angle fwd bend, etc..
The camera/lighting/sound are find, not high money, but better then average set inside a room. The voice over by I assume Dr. Sujatha reminds me of old 1970s/1980s PBS lecture programs. Slow, perfect, over pronunciation of all words to a boring degree that sounds condescending as if read at a snobbish high class lecture/gathering. It's set at a small room/stage inside taht is very basic. One Indian man & woman in regular cotton shirt/pants demonstrate the poses 1 at a time most times. This is not set to look beautiful as some yoga workouts do but basic. They do the poses well, but not inspiring like Shiva Rae, Rodney Yee, Rainbeau Mars, Sean Corn, etc. They demonstrate the pose in/out of it quickly, then you are told how to do it with the video paused in certain spots sometimes. They show it quickly on both sides. After it is demonstrated, the benefits are told as well as the words are on the screen are displayed to inform how it helps the physical body such as how it helps to lose weight, tone which muscles, tone which organs or glands & how helps to energize or relax the mind/spirit.
