    This review is from: Rodney Yee’s Yoga for Beginners (DVD)

    I love Rodney Yee as well as only a handful of other instructors such as Rainbeau Mars, Seane Corn, etc. who have a real passion for yoga to help balance the body and the mind.
    This has 2 about 20 min workouts, Rodney doing the morning & Colleen doing the evening. They both use only basic beginner poses that have a relaxed, slow pace. The great thing about this dvd is the 3 different audio instruction. You can have basic overall instruction that Rodney uses in the past which gives you the pose name, basic instruction about posture, as well as some inspiration teaching such as not being hard on yourself that you aren’t doing the best you’ve ever done, etc. You can choose “pose only” which is just the music & Rodney/Colleen only saying only the name of the next pose. Or you can have the “inspirational” mode which tells you the pose & how it helps your body & other inspirational ways the yoga pose helps you through life in a more positive way, by noticing the positive in your body, etc. This is a great idea to get larger target audience who might all have different taste in instruction, or different needs depending on the day. I think all workout dvds should do this, even offer even more varied choices, especially “instruction only” in case you don’t like the music, but do want the instruction, etc.. Most dvds now only offer instruction w/music or just music which is too limiting considering the technological possibilities, dvd reviews will get much less complaints due to varied user’s tastes & much more sales. *hint hint*
    The pose 42 min guide has Rodney & Colleen taking turns being the teacher/model in a total white studio for poses like: mountain, side bend, back bend, standing fwd bend, downward dog, triangle, wide angle standing fwd bend, side angle, warrior 1, cobra, cobbler’s/butterfly, seated twist, seated cross legged fwd bend, seated fwd bend, reclined easy stretch figure 4 ankle crossed over knee then pull to chest, happy baby, reclined twist, bridge, reclined rest with knees up, total rest. They mostly focus on common thing people do wrong & quick basics on how to do it right. There could have been more instruction, but this is good for people who get bored fast.
    If you want really deep instruction that answers questions you wouldn’t even realize to ask about muscle alignment/use during a pose, I would suggest Seane Corn’s Vinyasa Flow Yoga – Uniting Movement with Breath.

    This is one case in which the title does not mislead. If you don’t have much background in yoga and need to have all the various postures explained in some detail, this is the DVD for you. Even if you do have some experience with yoga, they will take you back to the basics where you might need a little correction here and there. Also, on the disc Rodney Yee and his partner take you through the steps of two yoga workouts that will lead you in the end to a wonderful feeling of relaxation.

    This review is from: Rodney Yee’s Yoga for Beginners (DVD)

    I purchased 3 different “beginner” DVDs on Amazon to try. I am somewhat familiar with Yoga but haven’t practiced it in years, and was never that advanced to begin with. I was worried that some of the DVD’s would be too easy or too complicated for me. This was perfect. (Incidentally, the one I really didn’t like was “Yoga for Every Body” which somehow managed to be both too easy (not challenging physically) and too complicated (using Hindu terminology and a lot of props) This DVD, on the other hand, was great becasue it was simple and straightforward, while being physically challenging at the same time (easy poses to customize to your level of fitness, too) I only wish it were longer. I will purchase more of the Gaiam DVDs with Rodney Yee
