Extremely Disapointing for those wishing to actually practice Yoga in its True form!
on 2 September 2015
This is NOT Yoga. This DVD will very briefly show you how to achieve a wide range of asanas.
Yoga is not just about achieveing the flexibilty of a contortionist, Yoga is comprised of '8 Limbs' only one of which (the asanas) focuses on the physical aspect of achieving poses. For Tara Stiles to entitle this DVD 'This is Yoga' is extremely misleading, as it only deals with the physical aspect of yoga, and this is instructed in a very 'fitness class' way.
I think this DVD is attempting to be just a guide to help practitioners attain certain postures, but it even fails to manage that well. It moves far too quickly from one asana to the next, and only shows you how to do them on one side of your body, both of which facilitate the need of the pause button an immesurable ammount of times.
I practice Yoga for all of its amazing physical, mental and spiritual benefits - to me that is what Yoga really is, this DVD doesn't even come close.
