Suzanne Deason presents this holistic and natural approach to weight loss through a series of yoga exercises. These exercises will help achieve and maintain an ideal weight while increasing stamina and energy.
Living Arts's Yoga Conditioning for Weight Loss is a fantastic example of how DVD features can be used to enhance a workout program. The same workout is presented five different ways, and you may choose the combined (which shows all four modifications), complete, slightly modified, partially modified, or fully modified program. The four modifications each focus on a different instructor, and the audio instruction explains the specific moves for each level. At any point during the 45-minute workout, you can press the "angle" key on your remote to switch to a different modification level, enabling you to get the best workout you can without straining yourself. In addition, at times a small "personal instructor" icon will appear in the lower right corner of the screen. By pressing enter, the program switches to instructor Suzanne Deason in the yoga studio who carefully explains how to do the pose. Each of these poses are explained based on the level you are watching (for example, at the fully modified level, Deason will demonstrate the pose using bricks or straps). All in all this is an excellent use of DVD features and a great way to grow with a yoga program. --Jenny BrownSee all Editorial Reviews

This video is also good for those who are overweight or not as flexible because the video shows 4 different people doing 4 different levels of the same moves, from inflexible to very flexible. So for each move you can follow the level that work best for you. I am 5'6 and 200 lb and am able to do everything on the video by following the level of modification that works for me.
This is my favorite workout video. I first used this video 10 years ago when I was in my 20's and really enjoyed it. Then after moving, I lost the video so I tried several others hoping to find a good, basic yoga workout. But, each time I would think back to that first one. Thanks to amazon, I found it again.
However, yoga IS the perfect exercise for both mind AND body, and practiced regularly, it WILL provide wonderful improvements in body tone, strength, balance and flexibility, not to mention increased calmness of mind. It was intended to be practiced as a smooth progression of poses, to be held for periods of time, that require concentration, strength, balance and flexibility. It was meant to strengthen both the body AND the mind and to assist connection with spiritual practices.
To me, as an experienced practitioner, this workout is absolutely perfect. The postures are sequenced perfectly and held for a reasonable amount of time. But the big plus over other videos I've tried is that there are other women (of various shapes and sizes) in the background performing each posture at a different level - beginner, intermediate and ultra advanced. They also perform them with blocks, straps or other props that a beginner or intermediate person might need for safe performance of the postures. She also CUES for the other levels so you don't have to keep looking up to see what they're doing.
I bought this when it was released years ago and wore it out - I'm buying the DVD version because the VCR tape won't play any more. It's not too long, not too short, and I love the relaxation/meditation that it ends with.
IF YOU WANT TO CHECK OUT YOGA, THIS IS THE VIDEO TO BUY.
I had an old VHS tape of the same Title from Suzanne Deason which I was trying to "replace". Although slightly different then my earlier program, this DVD was everything I was looking for in a Yoga routine.
Pros: There are several variations or modifications provided for each pose. Each of these is demonstrated by a different woman, so you can just watch and follow along with the woman doing the poses the way you need to do them. The music was soothing and appropriate. Suzanne's instructions are clear, concise, and well timed. After just a few times using the DVD, I can actually do the entire routine with my eyes closed and not even have to be watching my TV.
