Rated 1 out of 5 by thenaturalnymph Disappointing Instruction
As much as I wanted to like this DVD, I was extremely disappointed in the instruction. Not only did the instructor fail to verbally distinguish between right and left on almost every occasion, the moves were such that you couldn't possibly watch the screen to see what she was doing whilst doing the workout. Additionally, the women in the background, people who should, at the very least, perform experience level based variations of the moves, were redundantly doing the same exact thing, filmed from the same exact angle and pointing in the same exact direction as the instructor.
Yes, she was upbeat. And yes, she was in slammin' shape. However, she should've spent far less time telling me to smile and more time explaining what she was doing and how she was doing it. Again, a right and/or left would've helped immensely. And, also again, if you're going to have other people participating in your video, why not give them a purpose? If nothing else, you could at least point them in another direction so we could see the moves/positions from all sides.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tromboneyogi Not for Me
I had mixed feelings about trying Cardio Yoga (formerly Yoga Dance Fusion) because I have not been a fan of traditional class-style cardio workouts in the past. While I'm sure that this video will be great for some, it's too much like an aerobics class for me. I found that the routine alternates very quickly for no instruction to lots of instruction in a short space of time, which can make the routine difficult to follow.
In short, the routine was not for me, but it is still a quality routine if you're into fusion workouts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by amora Favorite for Sure
I have had this video for years now through my off and on spurts of working out and it is always something I can complete but I am always tired at the end and challenged. I do like the 30 minute "express" workout better than the full 60 minute work out which I think is too easy but I guess they are trying to pack the same results in shorter time which makes it harder. If you like yoga, this is a really fun way to do all your favorite moves but in a fast paced manner to keep your heart rate up and burn calories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Balletlover One of My Favorites!
I absolutely love this vinyasa workout; I use it two or three times per week. It is suitable for all levels of yoga practitioners. The 55-minute segment seems to be a more effective workout for me, with more of the actual "flow" aspect of yoga. The 35-minute segment is too rushed and fragmented for my taste, and does not give me the same feeling of well-being and relaxation that I obtain from the 55-minute workout. I love the way Patricia Moreno combines classical dance with yoga. It's an overall great workout.
