4.0 out of 5 stars Full body yoga routine March 11 2008
By Vynne
This DVD is a good overall introduction to yoga for beginners. The segments are sorted into either AM routines or PM routines. The shorter routines are basically focussing on breath, with the addition of a couple of relaxing poses, while the longer sequences are a combination of backbends, twists, leg stretches, and inversions that provide a good full body stretch.

Most of my focus has been on the PM routines, since that is when I have time to do yoga. My favourite is the Energizing Evening, and I find I am always surprised it goes by so fast, so I can say it does keep my attention throughout. (For morning people, the Wake up the Spine routine from the AM section is fairly similar). In this segment, even as a beginner, I can do most poses without modifications, except Lord of the Fishes, which I modify into a crosslegged twist because I find my plus-sized body gets in the way of the actual pose.

Benagh's style is to hold the poses for quite a while, which is good for newbies or those who are less coordinated, as it gives plenty of time to get into the pose. While her voiceover is not perfectly synchronized with what she is doing on the screen, I find that it is sufficient just to take the verbal direction, and check the screen once in a while to see if I'm doing it right.

The setting is beside a beach, with waves rolling in, and gentle elevator music in the background. Benagh does make some limited use of props, such as a strap, block, and blankets, but these are not essential to the practice if you don't have them, or are like me and find placing and removing props to be too much of an interuption.

I gave the DVD 4 stars rather than 5 because the routines were not filmed in one sitting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lots of selection for different routines... Sept. 14 2008
This video is good because it has several programs for both morning and evening that do not require a lot of time. Even if you only feel like a quick stretch there is a 10 minute session!

The music and setting are nice. The instructor does not talk too much and offers modifications which are nice.

I would not use this video to learn yoga. The beginner label is true, but it is not very educational. Definitely NOT an introductory video. She does not describe all aspects of the poses, and it is very easy to do a pose incorrectly in yoga. I use this video to supplement with my classes and it does well for that.

The only real complaint for this video is that sometimes her cues for poses do not match up with what she is doing. Being a good listener helps that if you have already seen what she will do next it is quite easy to get over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Selection Of Exercises May 17 2010
I have been using Barbara's DVDs for about a year now and this is one of them. It is very good with a selection of many workouts for both the morning and evening. The routines range from 15 minutes to an hour and are generally as follows (there is alot, but it is a general overview)

AM Routines

Exercises to get you going for the day, with a couple of nice shorter ones which you can fit into before work.

Get Up and Go 15 Minutes. - Includes upper back openers, including down dog, quarter dog, and cobra

Sun Salutation Centering 15 Minutes. Salutation and seated forward bends

Breath Work 30 Minutes. This is done lying down and seated and one that anyone can easily do with a combination of various items including twists and supported poses. Also has some meditation to help center you.

Gentle Wake Up 35 Minutes. Reclined postures and some twists.

Extended Morning 35 Minutes. nice more active practice that includes a side stretch, and tree, triangle, side angle, and warrior.

Wake Up the Spine 35 Minutes. Salutation and standing poses, works way to some seated poses.

PM Routines

The PM are different exercises than the AM, and in fact there is a different outfit than the AM, which is a nice touch. These are generally meant to relax you after the day.

Short Rest 10 Minutes, A nice short practice that is really effective just to relax which includes twists and breathing.

Breath Work 20 Minutes. Shoulder stretches and seated twist and then has seated meditation, breath work, and savasana. Another very relaxing thing to do.

Unwinding Muscle Tension 20 Minutes. Really nice way to do what it says, with various types of gentle twists to loosen up and relax.

3.0 out of 5 stars Yoga for Beginners Oct. 22 2009
Did a good intro to Yoga. Rather repetitive and quickly changes positions while not always explaining them. I found some of it too hard for a beginner.

3.0 out of 5 stars More variety would be good Dec 17 2009
I just bought this video a week ago and so far I have only tired one session in the video.However, I have been practicing yoga for several years both in class and at home following a tape.

I feel this video is quite repetitive. There were many similar moves. Moreover, the transition between each move is not smooth. One move would be standing, for example, while the next one would be sitting.

Pros: Many sessions of different time length and purposes (such as energizing workout and relaxing workout)are available

Very positive instructor.She is very good at encouraging the audience.

Cons: Quite repetitive
Transition is not smooth
