Product Description

Special Features

Living Arts's Yoga Conditioning for Weight Loss is a fantastic example of how DVD features can be used to enhance a workout program. The same workout is presented five different ways, and you may choose the combined (which shows all four modifications), complete, slightly modified, partially modified, or fully modified program. The four modifications each focus on a different instructor, and the audio instruction explains the specific moves for each level. At any point during the 45-minute workout, you can press the "angle" key on your remote to switch to a different modification level, enabling you to get the best workout you can without straining yourself. In addition, at times a small "personal instructor" icon will appear in the lower right corner of the screen. By pressing enter, the program switches to instructor Suzanne Deason in the yoga studio who carefully explains how to do the pose. Each of these poses are explained based on the level you are watching (for example, at the fully modified level, Deason will demonstrate the pose using bricks or straps). All in all this is an excellent use of DVD features and a great way to grow with a yoga program. --Jenny Brown

4.0 out of 5 stars You don't have to be thin to do yoga! Sept. 9 2004
This is by far the smoothest yoga routine I've ever seen, and the desert scenery is breathtaking!
Yoga in it's pure form is about breath, focus and meditation, as well as the poses, and Susanne Deason does an excellent job integrating all these aspects. In the west, all the focus is on exercise and doing the poses, but breathing and focusing is an essential part of yoga that makes it much more effective!
And much to my surprise - there are very overweight women doing yoga and doing it well! I weigh 180 lbs and exercise regularly and do a lot of yoga and it's great to see other women the same size who do it too. You don't have to be a skinny toothpick to do yoga! I've known that for 10 years, but you wouldn't know if you look at any other yoga DVD or video.
I love the way the instructor uses voiceover to talk you through the routine while the 4 people do the poses at various levels. She explains so much more than someone who's talking and doing the routine at the same time, and explains it beautifully.
Beats me why they call it weight loss yoga. The routine is slow and soothing, and I haven't lost a pound since I started doing it - but I enjoy it anyways as a great form of relaxation, toning and meditation.
I did not give it 5 stars because of the misleading title only. Otherwise, it's a great workout and would be awesome for anyone who is overweight and intimidated by the super thin, athletic and flexible bodies in all the other yoga DVD's and videos out there. In fact, the second thinnest woman does the most modified & easiest version and two heavier women do the more challenging levels.
Overall - great for overweight yoga enthusiasts and beginners and even someone like me, who likes to do moderate yoga, but is not a beginner.

5.0 out of 5 stars WRONG! about not losing weight with yoga! Jan. 14 2004
By A Customer
Anyone who says you cannot lose weight doing yoga has not done it for more than 6 weeks. I'm in my 50's, have lost only 20 lbs., but I'm easily wearing ALL the clothing that fit when I was 40 lbs. lighter. Yoga is the only way to explain this amazing result. I've gone from an 18W pant to a 14 regular - after four months of yoga. My butt is smaller than it was in college. Do Yoga! It will change your life!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Workout Jan. 10 2003
By A Customer
I have taken yoga classes and have a few tapes as well. This is my favorite taped workout. It's a nice balance of relaxation and working the muscles. If you are a true beginner, I would take a class to get the basic principles first. However, if you have had some exposure, but are still a beginner/intermediate this is a good DVD for you. I like the instructor, and like the fact that there are 3 other variations (with realistic-looking women, I might add). The combined workout is my favorite: it shows all versions at once (the instructor and 3 other modifications), and is good if you can do some of the poses fully, but have a few that still challenge you. By showing you each modification, the DVD demonstrates how you can step it down but still keep a correct position.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good all round routine. March 6 2012
By debpar
Ordered this to replace my VHS copy of it. She's awesome ... I love this DVD. It's perfect for someone who needs a gentle easy to follow yoga routine. It's certainly helped me tremendously. Lots of options for modifications and if you have health issues; that's what you need some days. However it can also be very challenging the higher your fitness level. It's a bit different than the old VHS of the same name but it's so far so good! My only complaint is I wish they'd hold the poses for a little longer for some of us oldies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Beauty of Oak Creek Canyon Jan. 28 2004
Format:VHS Tape
The stunning beauty of the red rocks and panoramas of Oak Creek Canyon in Sedona Arizona makes this video one of the most beautiful yoga workouts to date! The blue mats are just striking against the background and that makes this quite visually pleasing.
If you love exercising in the evening, this workout is perfect to promote a general feeling of well-being and relaxation. Suzanne Deason has created a calming escape.
I have recently discovered that it is my yoga and pilates
workouts that are helping me lose the weight. I was walking
forever and it wasn't until I started to take my yoga
and pilates seriously, that I saw great results. When you
do yoga, your entire life changes for the better. So, you
make better choices for your entire body, exercise, spiritual
choices, food choices. It all flows together.
I like the combination and have many DVDs and videos. So, I recommend this in addition to all the other workouts you own. Variety seems essential in keeping us all motivated!
The theory behind this workout is that yoga can be used for therapeutic applications. Being overweight has a lot to do with an imbalance in your body's physiology and an internal disconnection between the mind and body.
If you think about when you overeat it might be when you are feeling stressed. It is much easier to keep to your healthy nutrition plan when you feel calm and in control. I also have come to believe that when we are stressed, our bodies pack on the pounds.
So, this workout gives a calmness to your being and in this way you help to control the bodies healing process.
There is a 10 minute "Body and Breath" warm-up section to loosen the muscles and heat the core.
