Rated 3 out of 5 by cgee Very Easy and Relaxing
I bought this video because I was having some back pain even though I am still fairly young and active. I thought this video would be a little more rigorous and would help me get a stronger back. However, it's more of a relaxing video with poses that lightly stretch and comfort the back. You will need two chairs, one of those long pillows (rolled up blankets might do), and some yoga blocks. My yoga practice is done in the morning to wake me up and get me ready for the day so this video doesn't really fit into that; this video is very relaxing so it's more of a gentle evening practice. To be honest, I've done the video only once. It's not a bad video by any means, it's just not a good fit for me.
If you're looking for a light, gentle, relaxing, slow-paced video, then this is for you. Otherwise, I would recommend the Power Yoga Flexibility DVD. I've been doing that regularly and have not had any back pain lately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sumi Excellent purchase
First time I buy a Rodney Yee DVD. I'm very impressed with the instructions and I like that he portrays peace while doing the poses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by yogikurt pretty low level stuff
I was expecting a little more intensity so I was a little let down. I like that he repeats a lot of the poses, but the most difficult are some back bows. The rest is mostly relaxing postures. Plus, you need a lot of props that the blurb doesn't mention like two bricks, a bolster, and a chair.

Rated 4 out of 5 by merlady007 A great find!
My mom has problems with her back sometimes, especially when we go on trips so I got her this dvd for her birthday. She has been practicing yoga sporadically for about 10 years now and I would say that a turning point in her yoga practice has been this dvd because she feels the almost immediate benefits of the practice-thanks Rodney; you're a great teacher!!

I bought this DVD for my husband but ended up borrowing it after I hurt my back carrying little ones around. Rodney Yee is my favorite yoga guide. I appreciate the way he reminds you to go only as far as your body is comfortable, to breathe and to relax certain parts of your body that I seem to tighten when trying to get into the right position. The music is relaxing and the ocean is beautiful. After only a few days of following the routine I notice my range of motion is improved and my back is more flexible. Thank you Gaiam and Rodney Yee!
