This is a really awesome yoga dvd, I would highly recommend it. The relaxing flow is especially effective, but the energizing flow wasn't exactly what I expected. It will definitely help me, though. The dvd isn't totally user friendly for naive people like me; it took awhile to figure out that to make it play, you have to click not on the word, but the little line that pops up underneath it when you hover over it. Overall, great stretch routine for about any level of ability- Jessica gives you a lot of options as to how far to take it (in difficulty), so almost anyone can benefit. I have only tried the AM and PM flows once each, but I already feel like they could be very helpful in improving posture and decreasing some of my neck and back muscle pain (I have mild scoliosis). P.S. It is totally true... no creepy chanting or spiritual component, just a good stretch. The music in the PM flow has an extremely relaxing effect.
I started doing yoga with a beach body retreat dvd set. After a while i decided I needed a change up of the routine. I enjoy low impact yoga and this looked like it fit the bill. Its a great workout.. not to hard but makes me sweat. I would recommend it.
There are two basic work-outs: Energizing, and Relaxing. I like the relaxing, as the Energizing goes too fast for me (even the relaxing routine a little quick for me). I like the way she sticks to mostly a beginner routine rather than inserting too many intermediate and advanced options into the work-out. Other "beginner" DVD's were too confusing due to trying to cram too many options into the routine. Now if I can just get my lazy butt off the couch to do it lol!
Very easy for beginners and she offers challenges as you progress. I am an older person and completely new to Yoga and it was nice to have some options for lower levels and when I advance I hope I can hold the poses like she does. Great workout for seniors!
I am enjoying this yoga program very much (well, as much as I can enjoy exercise!). The stretches are fairly gentle but there are suggestions on how to make them more challenging, Jessica is sweet and the scenery is tranquil.
Love these workouts! I have tried a lot of yoga DVDs and have done none of them a second time. I will be doing these routines regularly. Jessica's down to earth style can't be beat. She is upbeat and encouraging, but calm too! And the poses are just right. Highly recommended!
