informative for beginners
PostedMarch 12, 2012
I bought this DVD expecting a 70 minute routine--I was looking for a practice lasting roughly an hour. Rather, it is a PBS informational program relating about yoga and how to perform the poses, along with the philosophy behind yoga. I did pick up a few tidbits of information I did not know, but because I've already been doing yoga for a few years, I felt this was not the DVD I was looking for. I LOVE Rodney Yee & Colleen Saidman, but again, this DVD is more like a beginner's seminar. Will exchange.

Good for Body, Mind & Spirit
PostedNovember 21, 2011
I was vaguely familiar with Kundalini yoga before purchasing this DVD. Gurmukh says Kundalini yoga is the original form of yoga. I feel the breathing aspect of Kundalini yoga is very important to overall well-being, as it is very restorative--it's somewhat different than traditional yoga, and I feel it's easier (for me) to maintain proper breath. The strength building segment is very challenging, but she is so encouraging throughout the DVD that you are spurred on. I feel rejuvenated after doing this practice, and that my energy field has been cleared. The hour long DVD goes quickly, and ends with a wonderful relaxing segment (very similar to Savasana).

Excellent for stretching & strength builing
PostedNovember 21, 2011
I feel that my body gets a challenging, stretching workout from Rodney's flexibility practice in only 25 minutes, without being too difficult. Perfect for the days when I want to get in substantial yoga in less time. I feel like I've actually worked my body after this practice. Love Rodney Yee's DVD's!

I'm looking for a Kundalini yoga video that doesn't have any of the religious aspects in it, just the workout or poses. Can you help?

Gurmukh says that you can perform this DVD irrespective of your religious beliefs, and I agree. It is spiritual, but not religious. Kundalini yoga is inherently restorative to one's being--however, I don't think the poses can be separated from it's philosophy. It's different than any other yoga I've ever done, and I find it to be very beneficial.

Warm up stretches.

Since Yoga is supposed to help with flexibility and posture, do I have to perform warm up stretches before I do the poses on the DVD? Can I wake up in the morning and go right into the routine of poses?

I don't personally warm up before doing this DVD, although my hamstrings feel a little tight at the outset. I loosen up as I go along, but if you find warm-ups beneficial, I am sure it wouldn't hurt.
