Take some yoga, remove all the best parts, add reps, and you're left with this garbage. Yogis are lean because they possess mindfulness that lessens the desire to overeat. This may burn more calories than yoga, but its still less effective.

I am in pretty shape. I do a lot of stretching, resistance training and cardio. I thought I might try yoga in 2015. Why not start with some basic yoga on youtube right? This video was the first one that came up from the search. I saw how many thumbs down it had so i decided to read some comments before watching the video. The comments from the yoga community were a real turn off. Very judgemental and condescending. I am not sure how far into yoga I will get but I am sure I will resist getting sucked into the yoga cult in fear of becoming like these people commenting on this video.
Im sorry, but Im not really comfortable with using the name yoga for this..I mean, she has great body and everything but in my eyes this is just an american workout for nice body inspired by yoga positions. The purpose of yoga is something different..but its still amazing what she can do :)
After reading some of the negative comments about this not being "true yoga" I feel obligated to comment. As a yogi who has practiced for 8 years, I can truly say this is yoga and I love this DVD! Yoga is the union of the mind, body and soul. Yoga does not stay with you only on the mat - your breath, spirit and mindfulness are taken with you throughout your day. Jillian does a great job of connecting you to your body and creating positive energy. DO NOT listen to the negative reviews, instead find the openness in your heart to try something different and radiate peace from within. Thank you Jillian~ :)
Lol. People are so funny. If you don't think this is yoga, I'm sure there are thousands of other "true yoga" videos floating on youtube. People complain about everything. "Cultural appropriation". Ha! when millions are starving to death and being sold as sex slaves. Please use your energy wisely, 21st century virtual protesters.
Wow! What a great workout! I'm definitely feeling the burn and I couldn't even finish the entire thing! Who knew such a calm exercise and using your own body weight could be such an intense workout! Thanks +Jillian Michaels!
Call it what you like, I can still only get 10 minutes through before collapsing in a heap! I'll keep at it and no doubt I'll improve each session. Whatever people want to say about this, it does work, I can feel a difference and I enjoy it in the privacy of my own home without judgemental gym goers having a laugh and my moaning and groaning :)
