Editorial Reviews

This instructional Yoga video is designed to help all levels of Yoga practitioners easily develop a yoga practice at home. Viewers can experience the over 70 Yoga asanas (yoga postures) that are unique to the Primary Series of Ashtanga Yoga. The video begins with two types of Sun Salutations, or energizing series of Yoga postures, which are linked by vinyasa (breath initiated movements). The practice continues with a set of standing asanas, which stretch and strengthen all of the major muscle groups. The standing asanas are followed by a sequence of seated postures, focusing then on opening the hips, knees, ankles and lower back and strengthening the arms, shoulders and abdominals. This specific sequence of seated postures is designed to purify the internal organs and eliminate disease. The seated sequence is then followed by back bends, which stretch the upper back and shoulders. A set of finishing postures strengthen and calm down the nervous system before the Yoga practice is concluded with seated Pranayama (breathing exercises) and a deep relaxation. The Sanskrit names of the asanas are presented with each posture. There are two audio tracks, an instructional track and a classical Indian instrumental music track, which features the bansuri (flute) and the tabla (drums).
This video was filmed in a serene outdoor setting in Kerala, India.
Caroline Klebl, Ph.D., teaches Yoga courses, retreats and teacher training programs within the US and internationally. She learned Yoga asana in India from renowned Yoga guru, Sri K Pattabhi Jois for over nine years. Photographs of her yoga postures have been featured in magazines all over the world and in numerous yoga calendars. She founded and directs "Source of Yoga", which offers internationally recognized 200 and 500 hour Yoga Teacher Training Programs.

I purchased this DVD over a year ago, to prepare me for my teacher training with Caroline last summer. The first time I tried it, it was incredibly difficult! That is what makes Ashtanga so amazing! You build up your strength and flexibility and eventually are able to complete all the asanas. It definitely helped prepare me for my training last summer. I am now able to do all the asanas in the DVD and it is a great resource to go back to. Caroline is amazing to watch. She definitely knows her yoga!!! I am now an Ashtanga Instructor myself and I recommend this DVD to my students so they are able to practice at home when they cannot make it to class. I would highly recommend it.

NOT FOR BEGINNERS
I am new to Ashtanga ( but I am a vinyasa yoga instructor) so I would not call myself a beginner to yoga by any means. I was hoping to start doing the primary series as something new to try. She is an amazing practitioner but I was hoping to have some modifications offered. The second time I did the video I made sure to have a strap and some blocks to help with the jump backs which made it much better.

Being an instructor myself I was able to somewhat modify when needed but it is very fast paced and during that series in the middle with the numerous jump backs/marichyasana/janu sirsasana/armbalances I had a hard time keeping up and using my props, but I made it work and I plan on continuing to do the video to better my practice and eventually go to an actual Ashtanga class.

Not recommended unless you know enough to modify the poses when needed,or have most of the poses accessible in your practice. I do not recommend this for the average yoga student or new beginners. I could see how this could be dangerous for those who don't know how to modify or get into the positions safely- there is NO instruction on how to get in to the postures.

Overall great video for the advanced practitioner.

Klebl is a talented yoga practitioner but I was hoping for more (any) modifications on her video as it is advertised for all levels. Ashtanga yoga is a set series of poses so if a person is already able to practice at an advanced skill level then they probably don't need a video. I am pretty new at it and have practiced enough to have learned the asanas. I still lack flexibility to do all of them without modifications so lacking an instructor, a video is the next best thing. David Swenson is very good at offering modifications to use as you gain flexibility but I thought another instructor might offer different options. I don't recommend this video to beginners without flexibility. That being said, she is very impressive to watch.

"Yoga" by Caroline Klebl is a fantastic Ashtanga Yoga DVD. Caroline is such a devoted yogi and her DVD inspired me and my yoga practice in many ways. I purchased this DVD because the yoga studio where I usually practice stopped offering true Ashtanga Yoga classes and I wanted to keep practicing.
Caroline Klebl has studied Yoga with Guruji in India and it instantly became very clear to me how evolved her practice is. Apart from this DVD being very inspiring, I was able to stick to a daily practice with out having to go to a Yoga studio.
"Yoga" made Ashtanga Yoga a significant part of my daily routine and I can recommend this DVD to everyone who is interested in true and pure Ashtanga Yoga and wants to learn from a professional. For my yoga practice, the DVD in combination with her book "Ashtanga Yoga: Primary and Intermediate Series" are very valuable.

This is a great video for learning the Primary Series. She has a nice voice and makes it look easy ... but it's not easy. I consider this video a valuable asset in my library of great yoga teachers.

This video is poor quality. No instruction given. Instructor is shaky in balancing postures. Sequence is correct but timing is bad. Production and sound quality is cheap and cheesy. Many better Ashtanga videos out there.
