There is nothing like going to a yoga class with a great teacher. Feel so good to worked out and relaxed at the same time.

In my humble opinion, I think you should try and attend real yoga can't learn proper form or technique from a video....once you have the basics sorted, DVD's can be a good support for your routine, but please don't expect to learn yoga this way...

Rodney Yee the real thing! I use his morning Yoga routines. There are 5-30 minute practices. I love him and his teaching.

Rodney Yee is absolutely beautiful to watch. He was a dancer before he was a yogi. I also like Shiva Rea. Both have many DVDs with many levels of difficulty available.

I have no experience with the DVD you're asking about, though.

Her yoga DVD is awful. There's no focus on correct form and alignment.

I often did level 1 of Yoga Meltdown (on YouTube), and I really liked it! I didn't buy the DVD though - apparently there's only level 1 and level 2, and I didn't feel like spending $12 on just one more level. But I liked what I completed.

As she's not a certified yoga instructor of any kind, I wouldn't recommend her DVDs at all. She's been criticized often for selling DVDs showing terrible form for things she has no training to teach.

Rodney Yee comes highly recommended by those I trust to know who's got the goods.

Hey! Lately I've incorporated some yoga into my routine. I've tried several different videos. Today I tried Yoga meltdown level 1 by Jillian Micheals. It was fairly difficult for me; at least some moves were. I'm not the most balanced or coordinated kid around!

Does anyone here have experience with her yoga? Do you like it? Did it work for you? Any others you would recommend?
