I am in my late 40's and am finding that running and weight training are giving way to more pilates and yoga type formats. Any good recommendations for a yoga dvd that really gives a great result ? I am at an intermediate level.

Thanks for your thoughts on this.

p90x's yoga x is also quite amazing!

P90X+ has a video called Fountain of Youth Yoga which is amazing and moves very quickly through the poses. You'll find yourself working up a sweat. You get it free when you order P90X or as part of P90X+.

For the most flexibility in formatting your own workout as well as the best cinematography and grounded feeling I would put Shiva Rae's Yoga Shakti and Fluid Power at the top of the list. Her videos are beautiful to watch and her voice is very soothing but not froo froo. She offers intermediate to advanced practices.
Mark Blanchard has simple set design but a very thorough workout in his videos, usually 90 minutes. He is calm and not egotistical. Intermediate to beginning advanced.
David Swenson is an advanced Ashtanga Yoga practitioner and is very thorough with his introduction to the practice. I love his Short Forms video. It has 15 min, 30 min and 45 min practices plus 10 relaxation. The 15 minute is perfect for intermediate, the 30 minute incorporates more advanced as well as the last one. I have another of his videos but after a short time it gets a bit to advanced for me with requiring holding hand stands, etc. Recommend Short Forms for intermediate. Nice scenery and calm, steady voice as well. You Tube him.
Steve Ross, Inhale Yoga is definitely worth recording at 2am on the Oxygen channel or getting from Rapidshare. I have burned him onto DVD this way. His class is mixed levels and never gets too advanced but the workout (45 minutes) is very thorough and he keeps it fun with great soundtracks in the background of groovy music. Some I don't care for but it is always upbeat and he is a wealth of funny/wise comments when appropriate. He makes me smile.
Anna Brett and Ravi Singh round out the yoga with Kundalini Yoga videos. This style is hard to get into if you're just watching it on YouTube. You may think, there's no way in hell you're getting me to do that silly looking stuff...but it can give you quite a workout even though it doesn't appear that way (thighs sore afterward) and you really feel like there's chakra opening going on with a pleasant buzz throughout the body when you're finished. Good stuff if you're down in the dumps and need a mood lift.
That's about it for the best video production, instruction and non-annoying personalities that will actually work you out.

My favorite yoga video of all time is Bryan Kest's power yoga. I had done lots of exercise types and this one kicked my butt. I like it because it stretches you out and even doing the poses a little way (the best I could do at the time) was a great workout. I even got a wnd one to give out. Most of my friends thought it was too hard. One didn't like the weight on her wrists.

Another dvd set to try is core fusion. However, both aren't aerobic, but are great at toning & shaping.

Bryan Kest is also one of my favorites.

I have Anna Brett and Ravi Singh Kundalini DVDs and it's definitely different. I don't use it as much, but I enjoy it.

I also love Sadi Nardini's Core vinyasa. Sadi's video has made a big difference in my core strength.

Overall, I like Sadi and Bryan best.

It depends--what kind of "result" are you looking for? There are MANY great yoga DVDs out there, but they tend to have different areas of focus (eg, flexibility, strength, relaxation, etc.).

A new one just released last week, Breath-Centered Yoga with Leslie Kaminoff, and it's terrific because it has a 30-minute routine as well as three 20-minute ones that you can then decide how to combine them to fit your needs. He's a great instructor!

Jillian Michaels' Yoga Burn! I love it :-)

These are my reccommendations: I love Hemalayaa's dvds also, Rodney Yee's voice is soothing and his instruction is clear and easy to follow. Check them out on YouTube before you buy to see if it's what you are looking for. Rodney Yee Intermediate Yoga, Hemalaya Behl: Yoga for Urban Living.Power Yoga - Total Body Workout

There are several Beachbody yoga programs that are available and are priced nicely. Patience Hummingbird from the One on One with Tony Horton series is nice...as is the Fountain of Youth program. Patience is a nice easy and slow paced routine that won't wipe you out...Fountain of Youth is more challenging. There is also the P90X One on One - X2 Yoga routine which will challenge most anyone.

When I was a teenager my favourite yoga lady was Lyn Marshall who used to be on Richard Hittleman's Yoga tv programme in the seventies.

I am really saddened to read that she sadly died 20 years ago. I have her book and still occasionally practice some of the techniques and exercises.

I really like Kristin McGee power yoga. The MTV one is fun and there are different levels to chose from. It has a nice flow and the more you do it the easier it gets but still challenging.
