Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!! April 8, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. June 22, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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!! December 20, 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. December 9, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beginning Yoga for the Already Flexible I purchased this DVD as a beginner to yoga. The instructor's directions are clear and helpful. The feature that allows you to receive more instruction with the poses is a great help for this beginner. Nicki Doane uses a very monotone voice throughout the series of poses, which I find irritating instead of relaxing. Also, the sun salutation poses do require at least a moderate level of flexibility, which I do not yet have. Overall, I do like this DVD and will continue to use it several times a week. I do feel that the poses will get easier with more practice and patience! October 28, 2009

I have this DVD and am very confused about whether it covers Surynamaskar A and B, or just A. The instructor talks about the B series and its part of the demo, but I can't find it in the program. Am I missing something here?

Answer: 
It covers the same series taught in the introductory DVD it is just done at a faster pace and doesn't go in depth into how the poses should be done since they are assuming you are familiar with the poses.
