I go into complete chill out mode doing the exercises.I read other reviews about the way she speaks, but I don't have a problem with it. In fact, I find her voice soothing. The exercises are amazing and I noticed a difference after doing them for the first time. Several goes later, I am getting comments about how well I look,how I look like I've had a facial and how young and stress free I look. I've learned the exercises off by heart, but doing them whilst watching t.v. does not give me the same benefits as watching and listening to the CD. I always sleep well after watching the CD as well. The tips on the smoothies and home made beauty products are great too.
