Personally, I really enjoy it.. but fair warning -- it's more of a cardio workout that incorporates basic yoga poses.

I really enjoy Jillian Michaels DVDs. They are fun, challenging, and effective with their beginner / intermediate / advanced modifications. I like her attitude, jokes, and motivational chatter to get your mind off of how much longer you're supposed to continue a challenging move / workout. My personal favorites are 30 Day Shred, 6 Week Six-Pack, No More Trouble Zones, and Banish Fat Boost Metabolism -- as well as this one. They are the ones that I always go back to. Having said all this, Yoga Meltdown is not a DVD for people who are very serious about yoga, people who have never done any yoga before, or people who have never tried other Jillian Michaels DVDs. The reason I say this is because 1) serious yogis might not like her jokes (because she doesn't take yoga seriously like some people do), and 2) if you have never done yoga before, you won't know the basic poses. She is normally very clear with instructions, but I found in this video, she wasn't as much. Going into this knowing these poses, though, I found it fun! Oh, and also worth noting -- normally her different levels in other videos have a very noticeable difference in difficulty, but I find that this one doesn't.
