5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging yoga practice Aug. 26 2002
I had read a bunch of unfavorable reviews of this video. Either it wasn't challenging enough as a sculpting workout or it wasn't meditative enough. Also, I got the feeling when reading between the lines that it wasn't exactly yoga, either. I'm pretty snobby about my yoga practice, but I'm a new Karen Voight fan and I have a lot of respect for her precise approach. I took a chance on this and I'm glad I did.
The practice is about 45 minutes long and begins with a quick breathing exercise in Mountain Pose. Then she moves onto the standing series, which is about 25 minutes long. A modified Sun Salutation utilizing Awkward Chair (and no jumping), and then moving into Lunge, Warrior I, Warrior II, Right Angle and Triangle. Then to the floor for work on the abdominals and back with such yoga classics as Boat and Bridge.
Throughout the practice, I was very impressed with her precise instruction and fluid movement into and out of poses. In Boat, for instance, many students flop out of the position after two or three tries. She made sure her students moved out carefully. Also, her instructions on alignment and foot position left little room for error. That is very important, particularly for the standing poses where you need to maintain just the right angle in your back leg. Finally, I loved the classical music she used for the video; it provided just the right rhythm without being too distracting.
I broke a sweat during this practice even though it doesn't look that tough on preview. Because I am an advanced yoga practitioner, I was very surprised that people less advanced would feel this wasn't strenuous enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nordstrom of Workout DVDs Jan. 28 2004
Format:DVD
Karen's workouts will leave you refreshed and invigorated. Once I have completed this challenging video, I feel stretched, strengthened, toned and very peaceful.
If you are just starting out, be patient with yourself. Yoga will develop patience, character and strength. Think of each posture as a goal; by the third or fourth time, you may achieve what you see. This video is a combination of Pilates and Yoga.
Ordering a sticky mat is essential (information is included in pamphlets or amazon sells lots of yoga mats and even bags to carry them in...) so you don't injure your muscles by slipping on a carpeted surface.
Karen's calming voice leads you through the poses in her organized way. The music is very relaxing and almost makes this the Nordstrom of Yoga videos. I recommend walking for at least one half hour before attempting the stretching exercises. This helps to warm the muscles and allow for a deeper stretch.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different kind of yoga workout Jan. 3 2004
Karen Voight's YogaSculpt combines classic yoga poses with innovative twists to turn up the intensity and focus on sculpting. Karen begins the workout with a relaxing breathing exercise but then quickly steps up the pace with a challenging sequence which combines down dog with high push up pose. The standing series includes traditional yoga poses such as Warrior 1, Warrior 2, and Triangle pose, but Karen combines each pose with extra lengthening and stretching moves. The first half of workout last approximately 25 minutes, and then it's on to the floor for approximately 16 minutes of mat work focused on the abdominals and back. In this section, Karen combines yoga poses such as Boat and Bridge with Pilates-type movements. Both the abs and the back receive thorough attention, and then the practice ends with a brief stretch.
Karen is an excellent instructor who performs the workout fluidly and with flawless form. Her voice is gentle and encouraging, and she provides detailed instruction on how to perform each movement, including attention to breathing. There were a few times when I felt that she failed to adequately cue a change in movement, but once you've done the workout a few times, Karen is easy to follow. She instructs alone with soft piano music in the background. Overall, this is a challenging yet relaxing workout which will add some nice variety to your yoga practice for those beyond a beginner's level.

5.0 out of 5 stars If You Have Bad Wrists... Jan. 25 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This is a wonderful workout with easy to follow directions. Might I remind those who rated this low that it is Yoga "Sculpt?" If you have bad wrists, get a different kind of Yoga dvd. Would you buy a how to run book and then complain because it doesn't cater to those with bad ankles???

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite workouts April 22 2002
By Karen
This is probably my favorite exercise videos, other than the ab section with Cher. It was hard at first as I was expecting relaxing yoga. (My introduction to yoga was Lilias for beginners.) After I got going with it, though, I like the more intense yoga better. I do the yoga section two mornings a week before work, and nothing gets this sleepy, non-morning person more ready to start the day! I also really like the second ab section. It's very concentrated and very effective. Great yoga workout that I can see myself doing for many years to come! Karen is such a great instructor and gives such good cues that I would also like to try her Pilates videos. One word of warning, though, would be that all the downward facing dogs might be a little hard on someone with bad shoulders.
