really enjoyed this! It has been a while since I have done yoga. This was a good starting point for me. Very soothing

instruction has a monotone quality, very very slow.

This workout is great - beautiful location, soothing instructor voice, nice music. The only issue is that it is tagged as basics when it is not. Sure, the 'only' exercise are sun salutations one and 2, so that is probably why it is classified as basic, but it does involve chaturanga and upwards facing dog, with no modified versions explained or shown. So it's very intense and potentially dangerous for a beginner. That said, I will be doing it again, just not on a day when I need something easy.

Nice clear instruction. Thorough. I'm always afraid of repetition but she kept me going with her steady voice throughout the numerous salutations. Also using the Ashtanga language was very good as it helped me remember what each position is called as if the masters were saying it.
