I LOVE yoga zone videos, particularly the ones with Alan Finger. However, I consider myself an intermediate and have practiced yoga for a few years, and most of Yoga Zone's videos are for beginners. I wanted a challenging workout, and also a more Vinyasa (flow) style workout. This was perfect. This workout isn't led by Alan Finger, but the instructor is great. The instructor goes fast, so it's great if you don't like to hold poses forever while they explain basic poses, maybe not the best tape to start out on. You move quickly from pose to pose, mostly warrior, right angle and chair poses. Half way through this tape, I was literally dripping with sweat. However there's rests (long down dogs or forward bends) in just the right places to recharge you so you can do more. I definitely couldn't do the whole video, especially some of the balance poses (like half moon, revolved triangle and reverse right angle that also require strength), but I'm glad I have something to work towards. Extremely invigorating and relaxing!
