As a lifelong yogini, and having studied a number of various schools of thought / as well teacher training, I can only say Rodney Yee is one the finest and most dedicated yoga teachers in the industry today; his practice is based in the B.K.S Iyengar method. While many people complain about the use of props in this video, the props are a mainstay of Iyengar yoga in many poses. They are only there to get you to position yourself the right way so that the poses can work. But make no mistake, Rodney is quite able to execute these poses perfectly without props, and that should be every yogi's goal at some point in their practice. Also, sitting on a chair allows the beginner to focus more on how the pose should feel in the body, rather than the fear of "am I doing this right?" or "I'm falling!", both of which can interfere with your concentration and the goal at hand. I would say that this video is not necessarily for a rank beginner, but could be with the help of a...
I was excited to order this video as I have back pain, and being new to yoga I thought Rodney Yee is considered the grandfather of yoga so it must be great right, but I'm very disappointed with this video, 1st of all it has no step by step narration, he is performing yoga on the beach, each scene cuts from one pose to another without allowing you to follow along smoothly. It does has soothing music however I was equally disturbed that there is an offer to joina his yoga club to get step by step instructions for a 10 day tree trial! I feel like I just gave him money without delivery, there is also a disturbing template with the Back Care Yoga title on it so it is distracting and you cannot see the full pose, WTW????
After a back problem that I had, I did the routine of massage, chiropractic treatments, Ice/Heat...you name it. Nothing worked. I had taken pride in the fact that I was always healthy. I did Ballet, Ballet conditioning, and Barre work, and felt proud I was so in shape. It was after my back problem that I realized that my lower back was weak. This DVD has been very helpful...........of course I'm feeling my back because of the work I'm doing with Yoga, but I don't have the awful spasms in my low back anymore. With that said, I do the (asanas) poses to my bodies limit, not Rodney Yee! I'm listening to my body's inner voice and only doing the poses to the point in which I can. It is the baby steps that are the hardest for me, because I'm so competitive. Slowing down, being mindful, and breathing have been very helpful for me. I wish you success in your journey to becoming whole, and healthy. My hope is that this review is helpful to you.
