Good Stuff! Many THanX!

Whitney Cooper says:

Great Beginner Video- reading through the comments I think the Instructor’s definition of “Beginner” is someone that has been to a few classes and has a foundational/ basic knowledge of the poses/ names versus someone who has never done yoga before.

Wonnin717 says:

this is great for people who have some knowledge of yoga, but it’s NOT for BEGINNERS. 

Nicandro Martínez Sotelo says:

Another day another practice. Real men do yoga!!!

Susan Sandoz says:

Wow…beginner tape too fast to watch and learn and seems hard for me at least for first time. Can’t watch and do at the same time due to quick switching of poses. Thinking he ought to stick with intermediate and advanced tapes. He is very good, but thinking he has forgotten what a true beginner might require.

Mr Alexander says:

this is extremely fast for beginners, by the time i realize one pose its already 2 poses ahead. Remember that we are not looking at the screen at some poses either…

spongebobmx says:

I struggled so much with the left twists!!! Aaaagh!!!!

zoeyangelpup says:

love,love,love. Just what my body needed. Definitely will be doing this again.

Nikki Lorraine says:

Can you please add an extra few minutes at the end for the resting pose, youtube automatically plays an advertisement when it’s over or the next video…really throws me off having to get up and pause it :/ this video be perfect if it wasn’t for that 

Aude Richards says:

absolutely it’s for people who did at least 1 year yoga class, by doing so i was able to build strengh and flexibility in my back (i used to have a problem in my back).
Really good video, it helps me finding energy and more peace.

Check out the Beginners yoga for relxation, also very good!
Otherwise i recommend Tara Stiles sun salutation / flexibility/ boost your energy a 5min booster / yoga to get you moving really simple and effective / build a calm energy

Happy New Year in advance to everyone

Mariam Hoballah says:

You are a great teacher. I have benefited a great deal from this practice and from your other sequences as well. Thank you so much.

Jonathan Vaughn says:

I looked up recommended youtube channels for yoga as this is my 4th time practicing yoga. This was extremely fast, if someone isnt familiar with all the moves, IE A BEGINNER, then maybe they need some time to look at what is going on and some time to feel the move. Misleading title

Carol Luna says:

I recommend watching through from start to finish a couple of times for technique–and transitions before actually performing the set. I see a lot of comments concerning the pace of the instructions. Notice as you are watching that the instructions come for the next pose as you are engaging in the pose before it. This helps the workout to flow. 

Gorgi Angelovski says:

You’re right. i know the bad fat is the reason that stopping 6 pack coming outside even we work out well. btw!but ye do you know about the 7 odd foods that kill belly fat if you don’t know about them you must see this. i found it here

advaita siva says:

addeyyry says:

The instructions are way too fast paced. And when I’ve gotten a grip of the thing you’re doing you’re already doing the next one

Trish McLain says:

Two years ago I lost weight just by doing this almost every morning and watching my portion sizes. That’s it. It was difficult at first, but after a week or two I just had to have the video playing in the background and almost had the whole routine memorized. Definitely going to start doing this again. On top of the weight that I didn’t even realize I was losing until EVERYBODY kept asking me what diet I was using, I also got a wonderful start to every day that I did this, and my stress levels went way down. I stopped because I thought I didn’t have time for it anymore, but if you keep at this it is well worth making time. So glad I was able to find this video again after all this time.

shanice nucci says:

Jamie Thomas says:

Wuxos31 says:

Tamika Deering says:

Way too fast! Yoga is supposed to be relaxing

Paula Chandler says:

Excellent routine with clear instruction.

Faith Chinyimba says:

Peter Harrison says:

Well, I’ve a lot to work on.

Thomas van den Heuvel says:

It’s a nice routine! The speed is fine after you’ve done this a couple of times.
The only annoying part is that there’s a random commercial at the ending. That kinda ruins the peaceful laying down :p
