I'm as stiff as a board and wouldn't ever go to a yoga class, but even I managed to do the first of the three 20min sessions of this dvd. It's simple but effective for getting you started, and you get better the more you practice. I haven't done the second session yet, but I suspect that after doing the first one for a few days, I may be able to. Hah, I shall be a svelt and supple goddess yet (...in my dreams anyway)!

I first saw extracts from this DVD on the Fitness TV channel - they were showing one of the 3 main practices as a programme. I watched it and thought to myself that it looked really good. I've been looking for something to add to my fitness routine that was about strength, and as I already do pilates I went for yoga.

It's a really great DVD - Tara Lee is brilliant throughout, as the voice over and as the demonstrator of the poses/sequences.

There are, as other reviews have said, 3 main practice sequences which are roughly 20 minutes long and you can work through individually, or play the entire sequence for a full-on 60 minute work out. First time I tried it I did the first section, felt really good and so went back and did the other 2 sections later in the day.

I haven't yet tried the bonus feature sequences, but if they're anywhere near as good as the main ones, then I will be very happy indeed.

All in all, a great buy. I am a complete yoga beginner, although I have been doing pilates for a while (although they're not the same, I have found there are some elements that are similar - focus on breath, focus on core muscles, etc.) I can see myself progressing well with this DVD and even when I am more experienced in yoga practice I will keep coming back to this DVD. I would love to attend one of Tara's classes!!

As a beginner to yoga I wanted a DVD that would give me good clear instruction and this DVD does exactly what I hoped for. A great DVD to start getting into yoga.

5*, been playing this video for sometime now and it has made me love yoga. I did it for a while before advancing to the next statge and this helped me grow in my Yoga sessions. I love the way it explains and follows through. Now I could do most moves withough watching becasue the explanation is adequate.

This made be feel like I know Tara Lee and I dont mind missing Yoga classes due to work schedules anymore. My Elements on Yoga is my living room partner. Good for those fit people looking to add Yoga to theri regime.

Would def recommend.

Tara Lee is a goddess! I am a total beginner at yoga but have in the past gone to lots of fitness classes - aerobics, step, bodypump etc. I am now in my late 40's and not as fit as I used to be, also I am aware that I'm starting to seize up! Could barely touch my toes and am quite stiff in the mornings. This DVD is absolutely fantastic! It is soothing, addictive, gentle yet effective. After just 4 sessions I am noticing a real improvement and can now sit cross-legged without being in agony! Great for the mind, body and soul. It is a real treat to spend an hour totally to ones self and end up feeling brilliant. Would highly recommend.

I took up yoga when I discovered I was pregnant with my second baby. I had SPD with my first child so was keen to try and allay that happening again and turned to Tara Lee Pregnancy Yoga to help me do that. I loved it, and not only did it hold off my SPD, it gave me a sense of calm and peace that I loved. I followed this with Tara's post natal dvd which again, I loved but a few months down the line I was looking for something a little more challenging. I was sad that there didn't seem to be another Tara Lee dvd that wasn't pregnancy or postnatal based... and then I found this and it went straight into my basket. I had previously loved Tara's style and simplicity, she isn't in the least bit patronising and has a very easy to listen to voice that lends itself to the practice of yoga well and this is certainly true of this dvd also. The yoga itself is more challenging than the pregnancy and postnatal yoga I have been doing, as you would expect and indeed hope, but is not so challenging as to be off putting. I've tried a few other dvd's along the way but always come back to Tara and LOVE the way this dvd makes me feel. I really hope there will be more in the series!

There are many things that are good about this DVD that are mentioned in the other reviews. My main issue with it is that it is marketed as beginners Yoga but I don't really think it has been produced with beginners in mind. I have been to 5 or 6 Yoga classes over that last couple of years, so I have a rough idea of what I am doing but I am not confident on the details of the poses. Although the sequences included are at a level that is suitable for someone who is fairly new to Yoga, there are many places where the instructions are woefully inadequate.

When Tara is describing simple poses she gets it just right but when she starts linking more complex poses together she reverts to little more than naming the poses and doesn't give enough information on position (heels on floor? knees bent or straight? head up, down or looking forward?) or what the key aspects of a pose are for people who may not be flexible enough yet to do "forward bends" and "downward dogs" competently. This means that I have to keep stopping and looking at the TV and it also worries me that I might be stretching in a way that could cause injury and this puts me off from using the DVD. I am also not convinced that the third practice is really stand alone and I would probably precede this with one of the other 2 practices.

This is a nice selection of simple routines that would be a good supplement to a regular Yoga class but is not suitable for a complete beginner. I also think the music will get boring after a while.
