Rated 4 out of 5 by digby Medium quality starter kit for newbie yogis!
Everything in the kit was decent quality. Likes: Rodney Yee is a good instructor with solid technique; his voice cues help you to focus on what you should be focusing on without being repetitive, intrusive, or annoying. Cons: the strap is a little low budget--cotton, though I like the metal buckle over plastic (greener choice). The mat has that "new mat" smell, so you may want to purchase/use mat wash before your first session if you're sensitive. I'd love to see a DVD with more than just one each of the AM, daily, PM workouts on it. Give the newbies a full 5 days and intro to more poses, please!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Haiku Great tool for beginners
I purchased this kit 2 weeks ago. The DVD instruction is helpful. I've been doing yoga daily since my purchase. Wonderful tool for people beginning and not able to attend a class regularly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Socialist OK, but the picture on the website is inaccurate.
The product is fine, but I bought it as a present to someone, and it came without the box. So I will have to give each item individually; the products are not packaged as they are in the picture. All four items came in a plain brown box.

Rated 2 out of 5 by yogagrasshopper Wrong Mat
This starter's kit seems like a good deal because it includes props but unfortunately, I was sent the wrong mat without the guide "lines" printed on it. I'm a beginner so making sure I do the yoga poses correctly is really the reason I bought this kit, again because of the specialized mat. I wrote GAIAM customer service and really hope they send the correct mat to me as soon as possible so that I can begin my yoga practice!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kait193 perfect for a beginner
I got this kit because I wanted to take yoga classes this summer, but the studio was too expensive. I ordered this kit and now I'm taking classes at my college (for free). You really get your moneys worth here. The mat smells a little odd at first, but it goes away.
One question though, my mat doesn't match the one in the video or on the box. Is that normal? Did I get the right mat? It doesn't say Gaiam on it anywhere is it supposed to?
