Wakes Me Up, But . . .
PostedFebruary 3, 2012
This is a great idea and the price is affordable. However the light is not bright enough to wake me up on its own. I also set the mornign birdy sounds and I still needed to set my cellphone alarm.
However. . . Once my cell phone goes off I am much more likely to stay awake. I have not hit the snooze button on my cell phone once since I got this alarm. I'm going to set it to radio and see if that works as well as the light/cell glee song alarm combo.
Background. Before I started using this a few weeks ago I had 7 alarms set on my cell phone to go off between 5.45 and 6.45 and I almost always slept through them all. I have woken up at 5.45am for the last 2 weeks with no problem. And I am actually awake. I'm not blinking in the bathroom light trying to find the knob to turn on the water anymore. My eyes are adjusted to the light by the time I wake up!!!

My first Yoga DVD
PostedOctober 19, 2011
I am not in the greatest of shape so when it came to trying to find something I'd stick with I needed something I could figure out in my own living room. This DVD is easy to understand and easy to customiz between the 3 levels. When I first started out I was doing the easy level almost exclusively, but each time I could move something up to the next level was an accomplishment that kept me going. Now I can even do a few of the harder moves!

When will the updated ball chair be available?

I dont' want to buy 1 if it is going to break on me. My office buys old used office furniture incl chairs that sink and are really incomfortable. if a new version is set to come out this year, i'll wait.

How bright does this light get? Is it gradual or jerky?

When the sun alarm is at maximum brightness, how does it compare to a standard 60 or 100 watt light bulb? Does the light really fade on, or does it step up at set levels?
Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
It steos up and it isn't as bright as a regular 60w. I don't usually notice it in the mornings, but you can really see the step down when you are trying to get to sleep.

Can I use this to read by at night?

Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
Yes. I use it at it's highest setting. It's only bright enough if it's right next to you. it wouldn't be bright enough if it were on the opposite bedside table as you.

With the sun alarm, i'm unable to read the time at night. Is there a way to make the display brighter?

Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
No, it's just 1 brightness. It needs to be below your eye level to make it out because the display tilts up. If you have higher bed side tables you won't be able to see it.

With the sun alarm, your internet info says it has a 9v battery backup. I purchased a battery, but we can't figure out where it goes.

It's in the middle of the bottom. You need to pry it open.

They last for 20 minutes and stay at the volume you start them at. They do stop abruptly. I stopped using them at night.

Request for iPod version

Is there an iPod version? This is my most suggested yoga video for anyone new to yoga. It is also my most-used yoga video in my collection. I've used it for years and would love to have an iPod version (either with or without video) for practice on the road and without DVD equipment.

There are lots of programs you can download to add it to your ipod. I used one of these so I could bring it on my cruise with me last year!

Do any of the "Yoga for Beginner" tapes address disability issues?

I have limited range of motion with my right arm due to a car accident. I also have pain in my lower back and neck. My doctor says yoga and/or pilates would be great.

It doesn't address them specifically, but I was very overweight when I started and not able to do much. I think this dvd gives you enough options (3 for each move) to work around the things you can't do.

Does this DVD include a Spanish audio track option?

It would be helpful if you included alternate audio track information on your order pages.

I bought mine about a year ago and there are no language options. Not sure if they have changed since then.
