Useless DVD for Back Care
PostedApril 12, 2012
As I am suffering from Sciatic nerve pain, I expected this DVD to help me become a healthier me. The are too many props needed, to have at your disposal to use this DVD.The timing is fast and does take into account, those who must move slow due to back issues. This class would be better suited to a yoga studio.The DVD does not allow you to fast forward or rewind to specific poses as they are (linked )categorized by sections , not poses.This may be a good DVD for those who want to strengthen a healthy back,
alas for me this was a misleading purchase.

Fit is off for my body type.
PostedSeptember 12, 2011
This dress runs large in all the wrong places and small in others , for me 5'4" , big bust and smaller hips. A friend of mine who is almost 6 ' and slim looks wonderful in the same dress.Since I bought 3 dresses on sale I will have to get them altered. Construction and fabric very good quality.

I had expectations , which as we know , life is more fully and happily lived by going with the flow. I was expecting more of a class "like tone " and this is more basic and concentrates on correct posture .very slow and helpful guidance. I do wish I had a mirror close to my television to check my alignment. All and all a good DVD, and I will keep searching for my next perfect yoga DVD....
ps Gaiam,
please , dont like adds for future DVDS and products on my DVD purchases...oh well. Peace!

Good for Price.
PostedAugust 4, 2011
I just used these products yesterday.Its wonderful to practice at home , at any time.I was "wound up" and was able to relax with the poses and unwind. I actually used Patricia Waldon's DVD,(yoga for beginners) because Rodney Yee's DVD, which came with this set, was much too fast for a beginner, as other reviewers have stated.I will certainly try his DVD at a later time....

Is this DVD safe for someone with major back problems like degenerative disk disease?

I would not recommend.Best too look for a "restorative" yoga DVD.This DVD in my opinion is for those who have a healthy back and want to keep it that way.

There are three sections mentioned in the video preview. The description says one 58-minute workout. Is navigation between the sections possible?

Top 50 Contributor

Yes, you may navigate between sections though not poses. Therefore if certain poses work for you and others don't you cannot fast forward.

The essential DVD to begin your yoga practice with Patricia Walden
 

Do I have to do warm up stretches before performing the poses?

Since this Yoga DVD is supposed to help with flexibility and posture, do I have to perform warm up stretches before I do any of the poses on the DVD? Can I wake up in the morning and go right into the routine of poses?
Top 50 Contributor
Top 50 Contributor
I did not find that to be the case. This DVD has gentle guidance , that allowed me to follow and warm up as you go along. After a few poses I was already more flexible and focused.
