Rated 5 out of 5 by sk888888 Very instructive!
I've been pretty lax in following any kind of yoga routine, but I find that Rodney Yee is so easy to understand, and the poses are very helpful. I like the different routines, too. This was a good value!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AllisonF Buying two more for christmas
I bought this DVD last year, my first attempt at yoga, and truly is the best introduction if you're going to go about it via recording. I still use this almost everyday before work, it's the perfect length to waken the body/mind and still make it out the door on time (20 min including the corpse pose/meditation). There are two separate 20 min routines anyway, and an in-depth pose instruction to make sure you're engaging the right muscles. Great stuff. I fell in love with Rodney using this DVD, bought 5 other of his works to accompany this one on my shelf. Yet to be let down. Also, If you are also using this as your gateway into yoga, definitely recommend using a decent sized mirror so you can look at your form until you get a feel for each pose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by docmeg Never Disappointed
I have several Rodney Yee videos and love them all. His style of teaching works perfect for me. It is always a pleasure to do a workout with a Rodney Yee video and each time I get a new one, I get a surge in my motivation...thanks Rodney!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlueMonday Not Just for Beginners!
I have been practicing yoga for years, but find the pose guide to be invaluable. It is so easy to get into bad habits in different asanas and stances, especially if you only have a DVD teacher. (And Rodney Yee is a terrific DVD teacher, no question!) The pose training is a nice slow workout on its own. Both Rodney and Colleen Saidman show the common mistakes and then how to correct them. I feel as if I am in a master class, not a beginning class, with this DVD

Rated 5 out of 5 by Aulica Love this DVD
I truly enjoy this DVD and sincerely hope Rodney and Colleen do more of these very basic beginners DVDs.
What is really great about Yoga for Beginners is that the teachers go through step by step on properly aligning your body for a pose. I have done home yoga for years, but have never truly understood where I was going wrong in some of the basic poses. Therefore, I have spent several classes on just doing the first part of the DVD to relearn yoga.
I also like the other programs in the DVD's. The instructors' gentle voices and happy faces really make me relax and enjoy the poses with or without instruction or with inspiration narratives.
The sections aren't too long and thus can be done in minutes, but I usually choose to do both sections for a good workout.
I might point out I have fibromyalgia and lower back disk problems. I feel great after this DVD. Thank you for this DVD. Good job!!
