This is a great Yoga DVD for beginners, or those seeking to build a strong foundation for a Vinyasa flow practice. Jennifer continues to cue the breath throughout the video, which is the basis of this type of yoga. The poses are energizing and challenging for the body, but not too advanced.

Deeper stretching is included along with a final relaxation (savasana). This DVD is a full and effective Vinyasa practice that will help you to increase flexibility, strength, and endurance. The captivating architecture and beautiful San Diego sunset along with the representation of the instructor's actual students make this a truly unique video.

Vinyasa - simple and sweet is right! , April 19, 2008
||Yoga Motion (San Diego, CA USA) -
They really named this one right. The flow of movement is simple and very soothing for a true mind/body experience. Jennifer explains things well and inspires us to do better each time we watch the video and listen to the pose desciptions. The poses are suitable for beginners, yet can be adapted for the more experienced pracitioner. Then, when we feel as though we have it down pat we can switch to the other sound tracks that allow us to hear the pose names along with different background music. It is like having three products in one. The scenery and camera angles are interesting to watch and a relaxing experience without even doing a workout. I recommend this video for someone looking to get started with Yoga, or for someone wanting a great practice at home.
yoga is for me!! , April 18, 2008
where do i begin! i love that this video has 3 different soundtracks to choose from. i normally have to mute my videos because the soundtrack or the repetition of the instructions start to annoy me. but with this video, you have options! you can choose between detailed instructions, or keywords for the poses.
i'm a beginner with yoga, but this video was easy to follow yet challenging, and after finishing it, i felt rejuvenated! i like the relaxing atmosphere that this video creates. it's set outside, and the sunset is amazing!!
i definitely recommend this video for everyone!
A nice beginner/immediate practice , January 10, 2009

Some of the favorable reviews here may be from friends, but I say "So what?". That does not negate the fact that this is a solid beginner/immediate yoga practice. Those looking for a purely instructional dvd may want to look elsewhere. But if you are at least familiar with some of the basics of yoga this is a great dvd to build your practice. I like that it includes some balance poses that are actually doable. Not too long, not too difficult...this dvd still covers all the bases.
