I picked this little gem up based on a recommendation from an online fitness friend. I wasn't disappointed.
The 3rd yoga session (about 19 minutes) on this DVD is THE reason to pick this one up! Excellent side and back stretches...my lower back feels soooo relaxed after doing this "post-surf" session! Peggy's voice is very positive and soothing during the relaxation pose. I didn't want to get up....ever!
Session 1 (pre-surf) is a nice 9-minute vinyasa series. I like to use it after running...it's quick and it gets the job done. However, I have to occasionally look up at my TV screen during certain poses because the instruction in this session is not quite detailed enough to follow by Peggy's voice alone.
Session 2 (water) was a big waste of time for me. Tt's a 6 minute session while the surfers are in the water waiting for waves (I don't surf). The stretches are pretty much all upper body. However, I would imagine that surfers could get something out of this session...just not me!
...
If you have a bit of money to burn, though. This is a great little yoga DVD!

"Yoga is accessible to anyone, regardless of age or physical condition. Yoga isn't just about flexibility - it's about awareness, about being fully alive in each moment." -Peggy Hall

Top professional surfers swear by yoga and now see the infinite sea of possibilities in taking up yoga in addition to their favorite sport: surfing. They rely on the advice of instructors like Peggy Hall who writes articles for "Surf Life for Women."

In the Fall 2002 issue, she introduces some of the poses she has incorporated into her new workout video. She is an avid surfer and certified yoga instructor.

Peggy created the "Yoga for Surfers" video series and teaches yoga clinics and private classes. This is a unique workout because it is especially designed for surfers and their specific needs. Expert yoga instruction is interspersed with surf footage.

"Every surfer should discover Yoga." -Rochelle Ballard ("Blue Crush" stunt surfer)

"Yoga changed my surfing - and my life." -Taylor Knox (a noted big-wave charger admired for his powerful, fluid surfing style)

The Setting: Filmed at Ballard and Knox's favorite surf breaks on the North Shore in Carlsbad, California.

The Level: Beginner to Intermediate

The Poses: Classic yoga with a few very creative twists I hadn't seen before. Intriguing. I really loved the poses and the pace.

The Results: Injury prevention, increased strength, flexibility and focus. Helps you to avoid chronic pain and has specific moves that will sharpen your mental focus.

I loved the soundtrack, which is pleasant and calming.

Volume I has three sections:

Pre-Surf Session: Flexibility and Focus

You can use this routine to warm-up before surfing.

The music alone is worth the money on the DVD. Very upbeat. The practice is a flowing easy to follow Hatha Yoga. Peggy Hall has a very postive attitude and doesn't talk too much. Easy to follow, quick work out. Peggy has a lot of interesting variations. The practice is broken into 3 segments: Pre-surf Session of flexibility and focus, Water Session Energy and Confidence, and Post-Surf Session Stretching and Rejuvenation. You can do each session separate for a short session or together for a longer session. You can even do the water session and pretend you're on your board!
I'm not a board surfer, but I love the ocean and the surf. This is a beautiful, well made DVD. I practice yoga everyday and I love mixing this practice into my week. I have the "Special Edition" and I think this means the music quality is a lot better.
Please check my other reviews on Amazon for Yoga DVDs. I'm a Yoga Video Enthusiast ;o). This is a good one and well worth the $ whether you're just starting to learn yoga or have some experience already.

I'm actually her husband reviewing this.

I think I have bought about 4 copies of Vol. I since this came out. I keep giving them away. I have been recommending this to friends, neighbors, strangers, and anyone else who will listen. This is the best thing that has happened to my back.

I have injured my back over the years of surfing, skateboarding, other sports and aggravated by bad posture and computers. I have been to massage therapy, physical therapy, chiroprators, accupunturists, medical doctors - I was headed for surgery. My wife finally dragged me to yoga classes and after 6 - 90 minute sessions in 2 weeks, my back started to noticeably improve. I have a pinched nerve in my upper back that causes discomfort/pain near my right shoulder blade.

Then I heard about this not too long afterwards and bought the DVD. This was when it first came out. The 10 minute warm up and the 20 minute post sessions were exactly what I needed. It was quick, it focused on the back and shoulder - surfer problem areas. They are easy to do and do not take up much time. I would (and do all the time) highly recommend this to anyone having any back problems. Try this before you try surgery, drugs, accupuncture, etc. Now as long as I do these 30 minute sessions 2-3 times a week, I am pain free! Thank you Peggy Hall!
