4.0 out of 5 stars Fun but could be improved, 16 Jun 2013
This review is from: Yogalosophy with Mandy Ingber [DVD] (DVD)
I do Pilates and I have tried yoga in the past. What attracted me to this DVD is the toning side of it and the Jennifer Aniston endorsement (JA looks toned and healthy without being stick thin). The DVD blurb says that it contains 2 workouts of 30 mins each: I though they were 2 different routines but it is the same one - the first one with brief explanation of the exercises and the second one without Mandy talking. I would have preferred two separate routines of 30 mins each.

The DVD starts with an intro by Mandy and another one by Jennifer Aniston. Then you get the first workout with an explanation of the exercises (not the best if you are not familiar with yoga). The music is pleasant and Mandy is very upbeat and funny - she does not take herself too seriously. This routine lasts about 35 minutes.
There is the possibility to add 4 sections and reach a 55 minutes routine. I have the MP4 version of this DVD and it is not clear how to put these exercises together. What I usually do is to create a second 20 mins routine out of these 4 sections (sun salutes, strength, balance and stretching)
If I use the main workout with music only and Mandy not talking I just switch off the sound and put my own Spotify yoga playlist.

It would be better if the exercises were explained in more detail with a 360 degrees view. Overall I enjoy this more modern version of yoga (if you like traditional yoga this DVD may not be for you). I do the workout at least once a week (I alternate it with Pilates). This workout is very effective (especially for your backside and arms) and if you do it consistently good results are achievable. The recommended "dose" of the routine is three times per week - totally feasible!
