    This review is from: Baron Baptiste Core Power Live!: Power Vinyasa Yoga for Beginners and All Levels (DVD)

    This video is part of Baron’s Live! series: each video was filmed during a large, live class. Core Power is a shorter, more concentrated version of Baron’s more lengthy practices such as Soul of Strength. Given that it is a power yoga workout, the practice moves along at a fairly brisk pace, although Baron also builds in time for restoration throughout.

    The practice begins with several sun salutations to warm up; each downward dog is held for several breaths. Following this, Baron skips standing poses and moves directly to the floor to focus on poses which engage the entire core area, particlarly the abdominals. Baron alternates between postures to stretch and lengthen the abs–e.g., bow, camel, bridge–and those that are designed to build strength, including crunches. At times, Baron moves quickly from pose to pose, but he uses postures like boat to provide longer, isometric contractions. The practice ends with a brief svasana, but since the music continues as the credits role, you could easily hold this relaxation pose for a longer period.

    I really enjoy Baron’s teaching style, which I find to be very accessible for all levels (although absolute beginners to yoga will want to learn the poses elsewhere). At 23 minutes, this is an excellent short practice for days when you have less time and/or when you want to focus specially on core work.

    Good short routine for inbetween ;-) , January 4, 2007
    This review is from: Baron Baptiste Core Power Live!: Power Vinyasa Yoga for Beginners and All Levels (DVD)

    A few words about myself so you can judge easier if my opinion might be helpfull for you: I’m into Power Yoga since about 6 Years, I practice every day and teach Power Vinyasa Yoga at a local Hotel Spa Fitness Club.

    I personally prefer physically demanding Flow Routines challenging strength but still contributing to all the aspects of Yoga.

    Beeing german my spelling is far from perfect, sorry for that!

    About the DVD:

    This is one more of Barons good short programms for the days inbetween when you can’t practice 60 to 80 Minutes. It is 30 Minutes long and has a focus on the muscels of the Stomach and Back. It is still a complete Programm featuring Sunsalutations ( only A) and some twists and streches. The programm leaves you warm and energized but is not to hard to do. It will challange the Abs and the back but wont leave you exhausted.

    It’s a good programm for the morning. I highly recommend all of Barons short Routines since every one is somewhat different, aswell as his longer Programms. Baron is a very skilled, gentil and encouraging teacher giving his students a lot of important information in a calm and soothing manner. The Music of Krishna Das was a great pick for the Background.

    A nice flow practice (ones again tis is true for all his programms) with beautifull Yoga Chant music. What else can a Yogi ask for?

    I hope this was helpfull to you!

    Namasté

    I have been using this DVD for about 6 months. I have tried a variety of Yoga and Pilates DVDs but this is my favorite. It takes about 20 minutes in the morning or afternoon and Baron Baptiste is very easy to follow. Nothing complicated or difficult. Great DVD for a beginner or novice like myself.
