Other than Jane Fonda, this was my first exposure to Yoga. I enjoyed it so much I've since bought a Power Yoga tape, and am looking for other similar workouts. This seems to be somewhere in between Jane Fonda and Bryan Kest's Power Yoga. The routine is an approximately 25 minute Ishtanga Yoga workout. Has some cat stretches, quite a few planks, up dog, down dog, and a variety of other poses and some flying locusts for the back. Although the workout says that it helps strengthen muscles, I love the intense stretch I get from this tape. This tape really seems to stretch out the legs and the hip and groin area. If you are looking for a stretching tape, I'd highly recommend the yoga portion of the tape. In fact I think for $9.99 at Target its worth it just to buy this tape for the yoga portion. I highly recommend the yoga portion of this tape.
