This video is great for beginners. The instructor, Alan Finger, provides good guidance, introduces each posture gently, uses humor effectively, and encourages students. I find the combination of his soothing voice and the instructions he give out before and during each posture very effective. While most of the asanas shown are at an introductory level, there are some that are challenging as well, so that even those who have been practicing yoga for a considerable amount of time already will find this a good alternative for the more intensive sessions. The sequence of postures ensure that the whole body is exercised. The postures are demonstrated by two senior yoga instructors, one of whom does the modified forms, and two students (Alan Finger's wife and his friend). Overall, the video is excellent for beginners, but if there's one thing to complain about, it's the length of time of the savasana with Alan Finger guiding you through the final posture.
