Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell teams up for a second time with yoga teacher Katy Appleton to present a yoga programme designed to help build mind, body and spirit. Includes two warm-ups, a strength section, and bliss and relaxation sections. Filmed in Los Angeles.
At the risk of offending hard core yogaphiles who disapproved of Geri Halliwell's common touch, it's difficult to sneer at Geri Body Yoga--the follow-up to her first yoga offering.
Every detail, from the ace location in California to clear simple instructions by teacher Katy Appleton, makes for an exceptional quality production. Thankfully, this time round the incessant Geri-babbling is limited, though there is considerable cheeky flirting with the camera. Still, Geri's body looks far from painfully thin, and it's reassuring to see a star who isn't flaunting a surgically-enhanced cleavage.
The graceful Appleton, a former dancer, deftly combines demonstrating and correcting Geri. Beginner Nate in the background looks like the production runner who was dragged in at the last minute, but doesn't do too badly. Despite excellent camera angles and seamless editing that make the routine easy to follow, this isn't yoga for total beginners. Instead of a slow start, Appleton kicks in with a more interesting warm-up than usual. The all-round yoga session moves onto an energetic Sun and Moon section, the mentally challenging Strength, the intense Bliss, and the final Chill. Appleton takes a classic approach and adapts it to appeal to fast urban living. The added Geri factor makes this ideal yoga for the Heat magazine reader.
On the DVD: Geri Body Yoga on disc has a 14-minute location film which takes us from Geri's West Hollywood apartment to behind the scenes of the filming with producer/director Steve Kemsley. The transformation of Cloudy Malibu in California, from a simple location to a spa style makes great viewing. The DVD also enables you to customise your own yoga session if you don't have time to do the full 90-minute session. --Lorna VSee all Product description

This DVD is much easier to follow, so much so that anyone really can do it! Katy takes us through all the poses gradually and there is more guidance than with the first DVD. This is made possible by the substantial reduction in chit chat from Geri.
This time Katy & Geri are joined by a beginner called "Nate", who actually shows us alternatives if we can't quite make the pose, or wish to gradually move into it. This is vastly different from the first, where the beginner appeared to be constantly in "Pose of a Child", and often poses were done without showing us how they got there.
It is great to see that even Geri still has some difficulty. It offers us beginners a little hope. The DVD was filmed outdoors and the location is an added bonus. The relaxation section has improved with some shots of the scenery and a voice-over from Katy which is soothing.
The DVD also has a very handy little feature, which allows you to select the routine you want to do by selecting various chapters to run in sequence. Fantastic!
I will use this DVD again and again, along with my other yoga DVDs.
This is another long (1.5 hours) offering from Katy Appleton/Geri. Again, it is divided into sections one could use separately - although one is always advised to start with a warm up and finish with the relaxation - which makes perfect yogi sense. There are once again 2 warm ups - the first is a gentle stretch sequence which includes a modified bridge pose, the second is much more vigorous with numerous sun salutations which really warm you up as they are astanga style - or power yoga style, perhaps. Then there is the Strength sequence including warrior poses, triangles and balance poses, followed by Bliss - variations on forward bends and backbends including the Wheel - those who are less advanced could do the bridge here. A shoulderstand is included, and Plow. Finally a lovely soothing relaxation which left me very very chilled.
Throughout Katy offers suggestions for modifications for those less strong/flexible.
I have a huge collection of yoga videos of all styles including many power yoga ones, many ordered from the States. I highly recommend this video, with one caveat - although the instruction is excellent, it is not for total yoga beginners. Everyone else will definitely benefit from this session.
