Remember to Warm Up first!
on May 3, 2014
I like this yoga DVD. Considering it is the first yoga DVD I have ever purchased, I think it's decent. My main problem with this DVD is the fact there is no warm up included. The first time I did one of the advanced sequences, I didn't warm up and woke up incredibly sore the next morning. It's absolutely imperative that you remember to warm up on your own before starting any of the sequences on this DVD. I also really dislike the names given to some of the sequences on this DVD. I like boring names that tell me exactly what I'll be doing in a sequence before I do it. Some of the names like "Dealing with change" and "Wringing out the old" are so vague that I haven't even bothered to try them yet. Maybe that's because I'm not really concerned with the spiritual side of yoga but I find it rather annoying. I don't want to wake up in the morning and then have to spend 15 minutes fast forwarding through a sequence just to find out what poses are in it.
But, it's still a good DVD. I really like how there are multiple sequences at multiple levels that take different amounts of time. Sometimes I don't feel like doing yoga for an hour, sometimes I feel like doing something more challenging. I really appreciate having options to choose from. I don't mind the fact that there are black screens in between each pose. It's very easy, I feel, to figure out your own transitions for each pose and the black screens keep me from feeling as rushed when I'm doing the poses (as I sometimes feel in physical classes).
All in all, I'm glad I bought this DVD. I think it was a good purchase considering it's the start of a collection I hope to expand. I has a lot of sequences to choose from, which was my main reason for buying it in the first place and it has met all of my expectations. I would recommend this DVD to others despite the few flaws I have mentioned here.
