great for beginners hoping to progress,
This review is from: Barbara Currie - Total Body Plan [DVD] (DVD)i recently got this on video and have been very impressed with it. those of you acquainted with barbara's inimitable style will already know whether it is for you or not.
suffice to say, you could do this video with your eyes closed probably since barbara explains everything so thoroughly. i had got a geri halliwell video thinking less chat would be nicer, but for a total beginner (as i am) it really helps to have someone explaining what you're doing. if you can deal with the incessant chatter then it's really helpful until you get used to the asanas.
i have now found after only about a week that i can have some music of my own choice on and turn the sound down, allowing me to follow barbara's movements without all the talk. however, if i am ever getting a bit confused about what's happening i can turn it up and get talked through.
i am really enjoying all the movements and already can see changes in my flexibility and how springy i feel when i get out of bed in the morning....
altogether, if you need to be guided through all the positions with a comprehensive description of what you should be doing, this is for you. it has only lost a star because i realise that some people like yoga to be a quiter, more contemplative activity.
and remember - "never strain!"
