Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by too limited in scope It is a good dvd which is beautifully shot that teaches sun salutes a and b in the ashtanga tradition. It teaches well but is very limited and will soon be outgrown. I suggest you purchase Ashtang Yoga Beginners Practice, also by Nicki Doanne and get more bang for your buck. That dvd teaches sun salutes a and b, as well as the first half of ashtanga standing poses. Namaste. August 11, 2010

I work in a hospital and would like to put the poster up but not if it looks like the pose guide that comes with Yoga for beginners with Patricia Walden. The woman posing only has on a sports bra and short shorts. This might be a little too much for some of my male patients to handle... Thank you!

Answer: 
Both are good dvds. I suggest Beginners practice: The introductory dvd teaches sun salutes a and b (the vinyassa flow) Beginners teaches both a and b, as well as a number of standing poses. So it is like two courses for the price of one.

Answer: 
Both of the these titles are great. The difference is in the beginning it focuses in depth on the poses and sequence of the vinyassas. In the Beginners DVD it goes full speed through the traditional Ashtanga vinyassas without much direction on body placement.
