What a fabulous DVD!! Shows the basic poses and how to do it properly. Teaches all the wherefores and whys. Is also a good workout in itself. Highly recommended.

I first bought the Yoga for Beginners Kit (mat, brick, strap & DVD) and discovered that the DVD expected you to already be familiar with the poses, which I wasn't. So, since it was on sale on Gaiam.com, I purchased this DVD. Although it doesn't have all the poses out there, I think it gives you a great start. Rodney and Colleen are very thorough in explaining most of the sun salutation poses, and reinforcing how to do them properly.
The two routines - rejuvenating practice and restorative practice - provide me with a good way to practice the poses and flow of breath together in a sequence. Since I'm such a beginner, it's been really good for me to work on my proper alignment and necessary pose modifications. I found that the practices are not too fast, not too hard, and not too simple, and the more I do them (almost every day), the more comfortable and easier it becomes, and I find that my flexibility is slowly increasing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dana804 Good but I want more
I like the varied routines for each morning, but I guess I was looking for a little more. I consider myself a beginner as far as skills go, but I like having options to make some of the moves harder. In some classes I take, the instructor gives a low and high option for certain moves. I wish this video included that because it gets slightly repetitive after a while. However, I like the speed at which the poses are explained. It's a nice, easy AM "wake me up" kind of DVD.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RedChaiLove Great!
I absolutely love this DVD. The instructions are clear and easy to follow and I cannot say enough good things about Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman. The video is the perfect pace for beginners, and as slow and low-key as it seems, I can feel it in my arms and legs. Practice guide is wonderful, and gives great tips on keeping proper form. I look forward to pursuing my yoga practice, and this is a great place to start. I do think the sections are a little too short, as one reviewer stated. It would have been nice to have a feature that lets you play both practices all the way through. But other than that, perfect!
