I Have to say I was pleasantly surprised by this power yoga series. I love Zuzka's poses, she doesn't make you hold them rather she moves through them in a quick secession of different yoga movements and you don't even realize you're doing yoga until half way through it and by then it's over and you start to feel aches in areas of your body you never even knew existed.
I am the type of person who workouts but rarely stretches, so I was looking for something that would force to me stretch. And this DVD delivers! Not only did I get an awesome workout I feel like every single part of my body got stretched and I did become a lot more flexible since I started to include the power yoga in my workouts last month. I own both Vol 1 & Vol 2.
I have been looking for a program like this for years. I am 33 yrs old, and I have been into fitness for the past 15+ years. I have tried most everything out there and I am always looking for something fun and different to challenge myself (Insanity, Insanity Asylum, P90X, marathons, ocean sports). I LOVE power yoga, but sometimes I don't think it is challenging enough - unless it's super advanced (with inversions and crazy pretzel like twisting that I am unable to do).
Zuzka takes yoga and makes it into a more dynamic cardio/strength yoga-themed workout. She takes some of the most challenging moves in yoga (chatarunga, crescent pose, warrior 3, chair series) and throws in some plyo moves to create a tough 6-12 minute mini "flows". They are pretty intense! Just what I have been looking for!
So why not five stars? This is quite different from traditional yoga. The video stops at each section (chapter) and there is about a 1 minute break between each section when she introduces the new section. I really wish she would "flow" from one section to the other. Also, Zuzka doesn't quite have the typical Yogi inflection. Yoga teaching is an art and although Zuzka knows how to challenge the body, I didn't quite get into the Yoga breathing or mindset with Zuzka. There is little explanation regarding breath and form (I am okay with that, but it might be a problem for those who aren't very experienced with Yoga).
With that said, I highly recommend this for anyone that is seeking a tough, challenging workout!
The first thing I noticed was the way the DVD is set up; there's an option to play the disc all the way through (as opposed to Volume 1, when you have to manually select each workout).
Similar to Volume 1, the warm up itself is a bit of a workout. Segments include:
*Balance Flow Workout
*Upper Body Burpee Workout
*Twisted Chair Workout
*Warrior Endurance Series
*100 Abs Workout
I was surprised at how hard this DVD is. There isn't one workout I can get through at my current fitness level, and I consider myself pretty fit (yoga, running, CrossFit 5 times a week). I considered giving this less than 5 stars based on the level of difficulty, but then I changed my mind. We buy workout DVDs to take us to the next level; and this one certainly will. I am modifying the workouts so I can still be challenged and get to the point I can do it right along Zuzka.
The moves are a little more difficult to understand (in my opinion) than Volume 1, so I found it helpful to watch the DVD once and learn what Zuzka was giving verbal cues to do.
I recommend buying this DVD, but purchasing and becoming familiar with Volume 1 first.
