Rated 5 out of 5 by fire4eye This tape is from the teachings of BKS Iyengar.
Patricia Walden's understanding of the underlying principles of Iyengar yoga is demonstrated in this tape. It is a wonderful introduction into the foundation of this style of yoga and has beautiful demonstrations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samaya Excellent Basic Yoga DVD
This DVD is amazing in it's ability to reach beginner's and teach experts a ting or two about basic yoga poses. I am a yoga teacher and I consult this video for reminders on basics all the time. Patricia rocks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Goodis Open mind
I had expectations , which as we know , life is more fully and happily lived by going with the flow. I was expecting more of a class "like tone " and this is more basic and concentrates on correct posture .very slow and helpful guidance. I do wish I had a mirror close to my television to check my alignment. All and all a good DVD, and I will keep searching for my next perfect yoga DVD....
please , dont like adds for future DVDS and products on my DVD purchases...oh well. Peace!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beloved Awesome dvd for beginner!
This is such an awesome dvd for those who would like to learn yoga for the first time. Ms. Walden explained it step by step patiently. Most importantly, she pointed out about what is the right posture for each position/stage. I'm satisfied with my first purchased at GAIAM!

Rated 4 out of 5 Good intro, but it is an intro
Being active and starting Yoga with my wife we were looking for a DVD to get us started. Bought this one and Rodney's beginner DVD. This DVD is great to get started with the poses but if you practice Tie Chi or Martial Arts you will already know most of the stretches/movements. This tape only has one short workout and it is not difficult (for us, being active and all). This is a good DVD to practice the poses if you have no idea what you are doing or are not active and somewhat in shape. Rodney’s Beginner DVD has 2 good workouts as well as the pose guide (also included in this video). I would recommend both as there are a few poses in each that are not in the other. I would also recommend if you are like us getting an intermediate DVD to mix thing up. We thought there would be a little more meat to get us going thru a workout and glad we have options. Amitofu
