Rated 5 out of 5 by BuddhaBaby Great for Knowledgable Beginners
As someone familiar with the basics of yoga but lacking the time for a regular practice this DVD is wonderfully effective!! I feel as if I am actually able to keep up and get a solid workout, considering I do not have much time to develop my skills. I am a licensed personal trainer and have utilized many fitness modalities, but in only a matter of 2 weeks I feel a significant amount of change in my physique. Very happy with this DVD!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Catstar12 Basic Traditional Sun Salutation Sequence
This video may be great for someone who has NOT already learned the sun salutations, but I was looking for something different. The entire workout is the traditional sun salutation sequence, with no variations. The chants are incorporated, however, and the traditional names for the poses are offered. But this emphasis on the spiritual roots of the poses is not what I was expecting. If you are new to yoga, have the time to learn and do a long workout , and if you want to explore the spiritual roots of Yoga, you will truly appreciate this video.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kentuckyogi Recommended for knowledgeable beginners
I purchased and enjoy this video, which constitutes a very good introduction to the basics of Ashtanga yoga. However, the purchaser (or recipient, if a gift) should have a pretty solid foundation of yoga knowledge before beginning. Some of the poses are a bit advanced, and modifications for the less flexible are not offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yogalvr Love this DVD!!!!
I look forward to practicing this DVD daily! I haven't tried the Advanced part of it yet, but the beginners level leaves me feeling like a noodle and looking forward to practicing again. Nicki's voice is very monotone, which is very relaxing. Her instruction is clear and she goes at a pace that is comfortable for someone just learning this practice, but also for someone who has practiced longer. The scenery is beautiful and the background music is very calming. I would definitely recommend this DVD to my friends and family!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Momoftwo Good for beginners
I bought this DVD being fairly new to yoga. It does require some flexibility but overall is the pace is perfect for beginners. Also the instruction is clear and easy to understand.
