The title Simply Yoga says it all. Yolanda Pettinato demonstrates yoga poses on a carpet in a blue room. Personally, I find the videos with crashing waves in the background add to my relaxation. (In this video, the crashing waves only appear at the break between each pose.) There is no music during the workout, and there are no other people to demonstrate modifications—although you probably wouldn’t need modifications, since most of the poses are pretty basic.

One positive feature with this video is that it gives you the name of the pose and the benefit that you will get from it. It also takes you slowly through the pose, giving you the chance to get the most out of it. The explanations are so detailed that you can probably do the pose without looking at the television screen, unlike other videos where I crane my neck trying to see what they’re doing. Yolanda is also specific about when to inhale and exhale—something very important when doing yoga, but lacking in some yoga videos.

A book is also included with the set. The book demonstrates the yoga poses from the video, as well as many other poses. It also explains yoga breathing and meditation.

So if you just want a basic video to help you learn the poses, have a look at Simply Yoga. However, if you’re looking for a fast-paced video with music to keep you motivated, and modifications to take you from beginner to advanced, you should look elsewhere.
