Rated 5 out of 5 by JenMay One of my favorites!
After reading some of the reviews I almost didn't buy this one but I am so very glad I did!! I love it! For the most part you will do the moves with your eyes closed and the instructor is very good about describing the moves as you go so you don't have to open your eyes too often. The meditation at the end is wonderful also! This DVD will push you beyond your limits but that's the point of working out right? ;)
This one is most definitely one of my favorites!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DragonGolu A comprehensive body-mind exercise
Its a must buy-and-try for fitness freaks and mediation freaks alike.
For the fitness, it contains a balanced 2 stages of rigorous awaken and strengthen cycle. Exercises focus on key parts of our body - like the lower back or abdominal muscles which seem to be the base of whole body. Quite surprisingly, doing the first two stages helped me realize my level of stamina. I bike everyday and have an active lifestyle. But still, after almost a month or so, I struggle to make it through the first two stages. The idea is to challenge that limit, get over it, and ride along. This is so true for life too, we face insurmountable problems, build our strength and get over them.
The meditation at last, brings a different touch. I never realized that meditation at the end of vigorous exercise can be so pleasant. I specially like the part where it asks to let go of life. We so injustifiably cling to life that wont last anyways, and in doing so lose focus of what is.
Overall, a great product. Definitely worth that 10-20 bucks we would otherwise spend in some useless activity.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Muneca115 This product does not have any introduction.
I bought this dvd thinking that it was going to have introduction & instructions. All I see is Gurmukh doing the movements & I get to see statutes in meditation position. T'here is no flow in between movements. It was a waste of money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bebs Almost has a cult-like feeling
Kundalini yoga is ok if I am in the mood. If you are looking for a nice flow, then this DVD is not for you. But it's not the Kundalini that haunts me about this DVD, it's the tone of it. I almost feel like I'm watching cult members following a cult leader. The DVD is shot outside (I think) in some weird setting and the only thing that is missing is the participants saying, "Yes, Gurmukh, anything you say, Gurmukh...." I own about 100 yoga DVDs and this one kind of freaks me out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by al3sha Wonderful practice
I find this workout very satisfying. There's a lot of room for making it strenuous or relaxed. I enjoy the mindful cultivation of energy to oneself - "bring it in, come on, go for it." The only thing that bothers me about the video is that the "students" don't give variations to the activities, or provide freer expression. There are a number of times when she says, "form does not matter here," but they are all the same and seem restricted. In other cases they don't demonstrate key aspects to a pose such as keeping the eyes closed, or when to open them, or staying on the toes. That said, it is really trivial except for those very new to Kundalini Yoga. And if you are new, just be more mindful of what Gurmukh is saying vs. looking to the class for demonstration. And mooove that body! Enjoy.
