Format: DVD
I received this DVD as a present and I absolutely love it. I had never done yoga before and this DVD has been very rewarding. I love the instructors slow, thoughtful way of speaking. It really draws me in to tuning into what is going on in my body. My body is definitely feeling less stiff and more open. I have found this DVD a great resource for beginning yoga. I now feel confident to start going to a local yoga class. Higly recommended.

I had attempted to get into Yoga in the past many times, but had found all the other tapes I ordered to be too difficult for a beginner and someone over 40. This dvd is wonderful and I am now totally dedicated to doing Yoga each and every day. This dvd has so many different programs to pick from and the routines are wonderful and easy to follow.

Barbara clearly presents the material at a pace that was easy to follow. I was concerned about yoga requring more flexibility than I had and that maybe I was too old to start yoga, but it turns out it was really not something to worry about based on my experience with the DVD.

She steps you through various poses (sitting, lying down, breathing, standing, sun salutations and others) and then leads you further into routines and adds some more moves. This DVD can be done by anyone and there are enough options and choices to start you off that you can work with some things and as you gain flexibility with some of the easier things you can practice others.

Format: DVD
After trying various yoga routines on my own (patched together from free videos on YouTube), I decided to purchase this video based on the positive feedback and reviews. The production quality of this video is great, and it does have a good variety of routines, which the instructor is obviously very good at performing. That being said, I was very disappointed in this DVD, mainly because it is does not actually target genuine beginners. Many of the poses are awkward, and instead of starting easy and becoming more challenging, they begin as challenging poses and the instructor then suggests modifications if you are finding it difficult. Watching the instructor and trying to copy her movements reminded me of when I was a kid trying to keep up with the flawless cartwheels of my neighbour who was in gymnastics class. Yoga is intimidating because of the flexibility and stamina it requires. I chose a DVD aimed at beginners as a comfortable introduction, but I found myself very frustrated as I tried to bring my left hand behind my back and grab my right thigh during a spinal twist! A modification to the Tree Pose does not help me when I've already lost my balance trying to put my heel all the way up on my inner thigh.

Although it is great that she is giving us something to aim for, it is very disheartening to watch the instructor move into a pose that you can't achieve. Ironically, the instructor often says not to get discouraged, but it would be more encouraging for her to build on the routines and shape them into more challenging poses. I also found that I had to struggle to keep up with what the instructor was saying; her instructions were hard to follow at times. I actually paused and re-played parts to see what she was doing, and then attempted the pose.

Format: DVD
General feeling about yoga is that you have to be well balanced and flexible. I am 58 and started yoga 12 years ago with classes, but my instructors have moved elsewhere and I am now retired. I read about this Yoga DVD and hoped it would meet my needs. First Barbara instructs from beside the Caribbean Sea and takes you through each movement with precision. She also provides modified moves which helps when you do not feel as able to complete the entire movement. This DVD has given me the impetus to get off my butt and do something for myself that is fun yet provides relaxation. I am so pleased I purchased this DVD and have invited my neighbour to join me so she can get her shallow breathing into a stronger and deeper breath.

The instructor has a great voice and style. She's a little older, not a supermodel, but has a friendly appearance so it feels like working out with a friend. Her voice is soothing, and she focuses on the stretching and breathing without the New Age spirituality. She holds the stretches long enough for it to go deep into the muscles. I like that it's broken up into targeted sections, so that I can work on the areas where I feel I most need it on any given day. There are some exercises that are strenuous and challenging, and some that are relaxing, combining gentle stretching with deep breathing. She shows modifications for many of the stretches, so that you can progress as needed. It's a good, straightforward, simple yoga workout, without a lot of bells and whistles, but just good exercises you can do any time of the day.
