I practiced the intermediate set of online sessions. (the online challenge had different "21 Day Workouts" for different levels.
I purchased the DVD because I really liked the mix of instructors and practices, and the price for a set of high quality practices was extremely reasonable.
The DVD contains a nice schedule for the 21 day practice and recommends a practice for each day. The practices range from a very soothing seated practice, suitable for a beginner with limited mobility (shoulder opening sequence), to challenging sequences leading to more difficult poses (Urdhva Dhanurasana - wheel pose, for example).
Because the practices aren't all designed for the same level student, a beginner with no background or outside instruction might very well find many of the practices hard to follow, as the instructors assume that the viewer is already familiar with performing downward facing dog, plank, child's pose, etc. and only needs cueing to know when to perform the posture.
On the other hand, this is a wonderful collection of varied practices, well designed and executed by an outstanding group of yoga instructors. You could follow the full 21 day schedule, or dip into the varied practices as your need, energy level, skill level and time availability allow. It's a good deal, either way.
I did manage to play it in my DVD player. The sequences are just ok: like with a lot of yoga journal videos, they largely skip warm up salutations and move right to the poses that require more flexibility, which makes it more difficult than it should be. Also the transitions are sort of awkward and require to you face away from the screen in some cases.
The instructions are given clearly and I found it easy to understand given that I've been going to yoga classes for 8 years now. I'm not sure how it would be for beginners who wouldn't understand what 'squaring of the hips' is and other poses.
Definitely not a cardio workout but perfect for those rest days in between high intensity days.
