I am a true beginner, 100% new to yoga, wanting to give it a try to see if it’s for me. I read several reviews for several video’s and wish I would have tried this one first. Although, it’s only my 2nd video, and 2nd day of doing yoga, it’s EXACTLY what I was looking for.
Ms. Barrios moves at a beginners pace, allowing you to set up for each pose correctly, explaining every move, and allowing you to feel the true effects of each pose. I only did the first 35 min’s (warm-up and 1st routine), because I am wanting to take it slow. I’m not completely out of shape, but I am physically weak and not that flexible (yet!). I feel this is challenging enough for a beginner to feel like you won’t just rush thru it and be scrambling to find the next video. I find that I will be coming back to this for weeks if not months ~ possibly being the only video I need. I am adding it to my exercise routine ~ I do cardio 3 times a week, and was hoping to add a yoga routine 2-3 times a week.
As previous reviewers have stated, the setting is real and the instructor is real. She’s not a size zero with make up and hair perfectly done. The setting is peaceful and simple. After trying the first routine, I feel truely relaxed and did not find myself comparing myself negatively to her, instead I found she inspired me and allowed me to view myself positively because I was looking at a real person enjoying yoga for what it is.
If you’re like me, trying yoga for the 1st time, this video is truely the one to try first!
(If you’re looking for a quick workout, this is not for you.)
