Product Description

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell teams up for a second time with yoga teacher Katy Appleton to present a yoga programme designed to help build mind, body and spirit. Includes two warm-ups, a strength section, and bliss and relaxation sections. Filmed in Los Angeles.

From Amazon.co.uk

At the risk of offending hard core yogaphiles who disapproved of Geri Halliwell's common touch, it's difficult to sneer at Geri Body Yoga--the follow-up to her first yoga offering.

Every detail, from the ace location in California to clear simple instructions by teacher Katy Appleton, makes for an exceptional quality production. Thankfully, this time round the incessant Geri-babbling is limited, though there is considerable cheeky flirting with the camera. Still, Geri's body looks far from painfully thin, and it's reassuring to see a star who isn't flaunting a surgically-enhanced cleavage.

The graceful Appleton, a former dancer, deftly combines demonstrating and correcting Geri. Beginner Nate in the background looks like the production runner who was dragged in at the last minute, but doesn't do too badly. Despite excellent camera angles and seamless editing that make the routine easy to follow, this isn't yoga for total beginners. Instead of a slow start, Appleton kicks in with a more interesting warm-up than usual. The all-round yoga session moves onto an energetic Sun and Moon section, the mentally challenging Strength, the intense Bliss, and the final Chill. Appleton takes a classic approach and adapts it to appeal to fast urban living. The added Geri factor makes this ideal yoga for the Heat magazine reader.

On the DVD: Geri Body Yoga on disc has a 14-minute location film which takes us from Geri's West Hollywood apartment to behind the scenes of the filming with producer/director Steve Kemsley. The transformation of Cloudy Malibu in California, from a simple location to a spa style makes great viewing. The DVD also enables you to customise your own yoga session if you don't have time to do the full 90-minute session. --Lorna V

I have been a yoga devotee for a year and this is the best that I have seen. Katy Appleton gives instructions that are clear and non-patronising. The excercises feel as though they are easy to do and there is no confusing technical jargon. The warm up is perfect for the excercises that follow. It helps to clear the mind which is essential for a good practice. The excercises that follow are quite demanding and leave you feeling energised and refreshed. You are given beginners and an advanced poses. This DVD is a great stress buster! The end of the practice is devoted to relaxation and I have found the relaxation far superior to any other DVD. I would recommend this to anybody

Well, I had my preconceptions about this DVD, and to be honest, about Geri too, just because it's a celeb doing yoga and Geri's known for being chatty, flirty and a bit cheeky. And the last thing you want is someone putting you off your yoga in anyway.
However, i read the reviews for this DVD and thought why not give it a go, and was pleasantly surprised.
Katy, the teacher, is great at teaching yoga and gives clear instructions for postures and breath.
The yoga is a good blend of Ashtanga, and Iyengar yoga, so it gives a good workout and relaxtion at the same time. I couldnt ask for more in a yoga video, and at approx 80 mins, its a great length too as some videos/DVDs are too short a session i find.
Geri doesnt talk too much, but as well as being a yoga video, it is definitly one for her fans to collect just because its Geri, (especially male), as it does features Geri in a very tight revealing top and skimpy shorts, and i couldnt help but wonder how on earth, they avoided filming certain parts of her exposed!!! ;-) If you find this in itself off putting, or a little bit of a niggle at your own self image, then I wouldnt go for this.
But Geri does look great though as does Katy, and the beginner, Nate.
And all that aside, if you can get past Geri's breasts, teeny shorts and cheeky camera flirting then, this is a great yoga video. I look forward though to when Katy Appleton does her own yoga video minus the celeb name.

So, you bought the first video and thought this would be more of the same? Right? Wrong!!!
This DVD is much easier to follow, so much so that anyone really can do it! Katy takes us through all the poses gradually and there is more guidance than with the first DVD. This is made possible by the substantial reduction in chit chat from Geri.
This time Katy & Geri are joined by a beginner called "Nate", who actually shows us alternatives if we can't quite make the pose, or wish to gradually move into it. This is vastly different from the first, where the beginner appeared to be constantly in "Pose of a Child", and often poses were done without showing us how they got there.
It is great to see that even Geri still has some difficulty. It offers us beginners a little hope. The DVD was filmed outdoors and the location is an added bonus. The relaxation section has improved with some shots of the scenery and a voice-over from Katy which is soothing.
The DVD also has a very handy little feature, which allows you to select the routine you want to do by selecting various chapters to run in sequence. Fantastic!
I will use this DVD again and again, along with my other yoga DVDs.

I have never done a review for anything before but it does have to be said for "GeriBody Yoga" that this is such a great dvd. The way it plays itself out is fantastic, its not 'matter of fact' and in no way is it telling you how you should do yoga, Katy gives great suggestions and her easy approach to teaching makes it so much easier to try that bit extra in each pose.
Geri does a great job with this latest work, shes not as annoying as her first yoga video but her cheekiness is what makes her great. After your first session of this yoga dvd you do feel much more energised and tighter, hard to say but its true. Its proving itself with great results.

I have used this DVD for nearly a year now and I dont know where I would be without it! I now practise yoga 6 days a week and love it! I do like to look after my health and well being but dont enjoy the gym. I thought that I'd try this as I could see the transformation of Geri and doing a stressful job with 2 children I needed something practical. Katy Appleton is an excellent instructor and really emphasizes on the breathing used in yoga. Geri does talk at times but not as much as her first yoga DVD!!! As this is broken down in sections I choose 2-4 sections depending on how I feel. I always warm up, and follow with the sections I choose. I always feel relaxed and energised after the workout. My body is now toned and flexible, I'm calmer and I never feel sluggish.

I bought this because it was cheap and I'd heard that Katy Appleton was a very good yoga teacher. It was ok. You are led through each pose and the explanation is clear enough. But...I just can't bare to watch it now, because Geri is incredibly irritating. She keeps making lots of empty, irritating comments, which can prevent you from relaxing into the poses (as you'd hope). I found myself thinking,"Oi! Geri, zip it!" If you want a lovely serene gentle approach to yoga from a very competent teacher I would suggest Howard Napper.
