    4.0 out of 5 stars
    4 &1/2 stars! Almost perfect except, January 23, 2008
    This review is from: Element: Yoga for Beginners (DVD)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    I enjoyed this DVD. The instructors voice and presence are soothing, the background (hanging gardens overlooking the Pacific) are breathtaking and the music is serene and effective.
    The practics starts with:
    1. Breathwork and Warm-up. This includes sitting while practicing Ujjayi breathing and warming up the legs with light lunging and standing forward bend.
    2. Standing Poses and Sun Salutations. The series starts with 2 modified Sun Salutations and then a series of standing poses including, Warrior 1 & 2, Triangle, Side Angle Pose and a Side Angle Twist
    3. Hip Openers. The Hip Openers started with Pigeon Pose which I think is a bit difficult for a true beginners with no training from a teacher..
    4. Backbends. I like the Backbend series here for beginners. It starts with a light cobra, then moves on to a modified locust pose series. It ends with a counterpose to release the backbends which feels nice.
    5. Forward Bends/Stretch/Relaxation. This is all a nice calming series ending with a short meditation.
    Overall, I give this DVD 4 and 1/2 stars taking off 1/2 star because I think this is really for an advanced beginner. There is not enough mention of foot, knee, and/or hip alignment and I think it would be very easy to injure your joints without this knowledge. A tutorial in the beginning of the DVd would have been perfect. Maybe with a lined mat showing beginners where to place their feet.

    3.5 Stars.

    There are elements of this yoga video that I absolutely love; there are also elements that I do not like at all.

    The Highs:
    The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and the music is perfect for both the activity and the setting.
    The beginning of the DVD is relaxing; with the breathing and the stretching it does wonders for your tension and stress.
    The ending of the DVD is the same as the beginning. Very relaxing, both the breathing and the stretching are as relaxing as it is invigorating.

    The Lows:
    The middle of the DVD she gets into some Yoga positioning and really doesn’t take the time for the newbie to follow along. Also she switches positions and what not without telling you so if you are not watching the TV screen the whole time you miss some very vital stuff.

    I am not a beginner at Yoga, but most of my Yoga experience has been integrated with a Pilates based workout. I watched the DVD twice before actually doing the exercises as when I do Yoga there are times I like to have my eyes closed. That’s next to impossible to do on the majority of the middle of the DVD. A lot of the time you have to move fast and watch the whole time; I didn’t like that at all. I prefer to listen to the voice guide me through the exercises.

    The good definitely outweighs the bad, but I can already tell it’s not going to be one of my favorite exercise DVD’s.

    While this is not a bad DVD, it is far too strenuous and, in places, complex for real beginners. Only try this if you have at least some experience in a yoga class.

    This review is from: Yoga for Beginners (DVD)

    I am slowly learning to like yoga. It’s still not my absolute favourite workout, but this dvd is helping me even more to enjoy it better. It truly is for beginners and even I found it easy(ish) to do.
    Desi is a great instructor and she has a clear, calm way of cuing and the camera work also allows you to see the moves better and practice them yourself and follow along well. There are two workouts, Solar and Lunar, which seem to be a trend now (doing an AM and PM workout). The Solar one is energy boosting and the Lunar routine is more stretchy and slower paced to be relaxing. It is meant to also lengthen your muscles which I feel it is probably doing.
    I’ve done this three times now and I’m constantly getting a little better. I find it great to do on hectic days because it really is relaxing, and each workout is under a half hour so it’s not too hard to fit into your day. I like this a lot and would highly recommend it to almost everyone. It is very do-able.

    I just saw that Desiree had a new DVD out — it is even better than the other one that i bought. I am trying to find out if she has more coming. If anyone knows, please leave a comment because I love having a variety.

    I do yoga 4 days per week now.

    Ultimately, I think if you already have a decent understanding of basic yoga, this video would be a good work out… I hope to work up to it. But if you have really never done yoga before and do not know much about it, this video is too fast and does not spend time on basic poses and correct form. I need something slower, that spends time on getting the poses right. Eventually, I think this would be a good every day routine…
