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.
