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!

I like that Rodney demonstrates a variety of different poses to strengthen and stretch the back. The poses he shows you can do throughout the day. If this is your first yoga video you may need futher instructions on posture. Try the Yoga Beginner II with Patrica Walden. I use both of these together. I also like the segment that shows you how to sit correctly and do excercies while sitting at a desk.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DaJoy Easy, clear instructions, works
Rodney Yee is clear and so relaxed himself that it comes through. Beautiful backdrop is helpful! This dvd is easy to do and medium paced. After doing it twice my back was improving (as in sharp spasms stopped). And after a few more my flexibility has improved slightly. The section about how to sit in a chair is helpful but I wish they'd added suggestions for how to sit on the floor too, and possibly nursing, and rocking a baby(aka holding a weight) for us family folks.
