    Perfect for a beginner like me!

    I love this yoga video! The instructor does an excellent job of explaining exactly what to do for each pose. Yoga for Wimps creates a comfortable atmosphere for a beginner like me. I am planning to order the Pilates for Wimps video now!

    Helpful for arthritis sufferer

    A bit fast to follow at first, but after many reviews is easier to do. Is user friendly so far to my arthritic joints! Use a well padded surface for comfort!
