4.0 out of 5 stars Challenging Yoga Practice 6 July 2006
Format:DVD
I haven't yet tried all the sections of this DVD yet as there are hours of yoga on there, but today I followed the Lower Body and part of the Dynamic Yoga sections which took approximtely an hour an a half and I found it pretty hard work. I go to a weekly Hatha Yoga class and in comparison Howard Napper's DVD gave me a much stronger stretch through the hamstrings and hips and far more weight bearing postures for the arms. I'd recommend this DVD for anyone but an absolute novice, as I think that anyone, even a yoga teacher would find it challenging. I think that any men looking for a yoga DVD would find it particularly suitable as there is plenty of upper body strength to be used and developed here.

There are no especially difficult or flashy postures, so you won't be learning to tie yourself impressively into a pretzel, but each section seems to have the necessary forward, backward, twisting and sideways moves to make up a balanced session.

To look at, the DVD isn't the slickest production I've ever seen but the picture quality and sound are clear enough. Howard is filmed in a studio and outside on a roof terrace(?) in Greece and the shots switch from one location to another which is a little distracting at first. The background music is pleasant and appropraitely calming. Howard himself is neat and clean, has bloke-next-door good looks and is modestly dressed in knee length Lycra shorts and a T shirt - so no over-exposure of skin to put you off! He doesn't talk too much either, but nor does he offer much advice or warnings e.g. for people with high blood pressure. I'd recommend that anyone with any health concerns find additional information before following this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 10 April 2007
Format:DVD
Howard Nappers yoga is excellent, well put together, easy to follow and you feel it really working. My favourites on this dvd are the chillout yoga as it works most areas of the body and the dynamic yoga, which can be a bit of a challenge. Great value for money at over 3 hours of yoga, clear instruction and relaxing music. (...)

5.0 out of 5 stars good intermediate yoga 27 Aug 2006
By jackie
Format:DVD
i have done yoga classes for the last two years and have recently started doing the dvd's due to time constraints and children - this is an excellent dvd - none of it is showing off ie twisting your legs round your neck, but it is straightforward and you can feel it working....highly recommended and especially at this low price great value for money

4.0 out of 5 stars Napper has me bending 27 Sep 2009
Format:DVD
I would recommend this dvd to anyone interested in yoga. The workouts are enought to get you started in yoga if your at a moderate level of fittness, but intense enough to keep you coming back. I have lots of yoga dvds this is one of my favourites.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely yoga DVD 6 Mar 2007
Format:DVD
The best thing about Howard Napper is his soothing, calm voice, which really helps you to relax and feel the positive benefit that you hope to gain from yoga. I tend to use the upper and lower body yoga for the days when I don't have much motivation to do my own yoga practice and could benefit from a bit of inspiration. A great yoga DVD, but not for the purists out there!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Workout - Disappointing presentation 4 Sep 2006
Format:DVD
With about three hours of yoga this sounds good value of money. The exercises are reasonably easy to do but also quite thorough and demanding. The DVD also demonstrates some basic warm-up and warm-down routines which some yoga DVDs miss out. In this case they are more necessary than most because of the relatively high level of exercise.

The big disappointment about the DVD in my opinion is that it is very badly produced. The action jumps quickly between an indoor and outdoor location which is very irritating. I have other yoga DVDs that do similar things but much more effectively. In this case the change in location and also different camera angles are achieved using hard edit cuts (i.e. no video fades). Some of the shots are also overexposed, especially indoors where Mr. Napper's white top sometimes almost dissapears into the background. Mr Napper's commentary is workmanlike but also very monotonous and not very inspirational.

While it can be argued that style shouldn't be before substance, I'd prefer a DVD that makes the experience more enjoyable. I've given it three stars to reflect the quality of the workout though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD 18 Dec 2006
Format:DVD
Excellent DVD. Clear instructions and at a realistic pace. A good workout and a real insight into yoga asanas. The only problem is the way the shots switch from one location to another so quickly. One location, possibly the one with the beautiful blue sea in the background would have made the DVD much more professional. I would also have liked a more structured relaxation session at the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners. 9 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD rushes into positions and moves that require months of stretching to achieve. It's a cheap option and I feel that I could have injured myself attempting some of the moves. I found more help from google and youtube. I am now taking class which is what I'd hope to have avoided by it's great. Do a class. It's safer and more fun by far.
