Amazing ! Just what I needed. Most of us are familiar with the breath and movement co-ordination, so that did not bother me, I loved the pace. Got my heart rate up. I just hope I killed some

It was to fast and I could not enjoy the sequence. I could not come in contact with my breath, with my body and could not get in the present moment...

I enjoy the change of pace from Coleen's other video I've done. Good to mix it up with the slower meditative sequences. Even though it is faster than usual I think Coleen's calm being makes it easy to follow.

Does anyone actually breathe that fast?? Wont be doing it again.

I usually don't write negative comments but I really didn't enjoy this sequence.

I actually like the speed of the movement. This series makes me feel strong as well as relaxed. It is perfect for my 5AM workout - wakes me up and gets me energized for the day!

Getting frustrated. This is not the first time that I have been unable to view a video from a series.

This workout is as beautiful as Ms. Saidman. I absolutely love the flow and the energy. Excellent cueing and transitions. The ending relaxation and meditation is restorative and a great balance to the pace of the workout. If you are short on time, but still want to enjoy a well executed yoga session, this series delivers.

This was going to be a great practice, but there is no way to go that fast with my breathing. Really wanted to like it, but this is the worst video I've tried. It's like I was playing it on fast forward.

This was great. Brisk pace with smooth transitions and good direction. Thank you!

Very nice workout.

this was nice after a long day at work..not too invigorating but enough to keep me awake for awhile

I just did Constant Cardio and really enjoyed it. It is very active and invigorating, so it gets your heart rate up a little bit, and you feel some muscles working, but you still get a lot of stretching and feel relaxed by the end. It's a bit fast paced, but the poses are not too advanced. There is a little bit of balance work, but I thought that was a nice challenge. Colleen's instruction is very clear, so it is easy to follow her even if you look away for a second.

Yay! Just tried the first segment and it was just what I needed. Not too challenging technically, but got my pulse rate up and felt good. The length was perfect for me—not too long or too short....just right.

Great workout with some new poses for me. The only issue I found with the class was that there was a bit of work on the knee. So if your knee is sensitive like mine, you will either have to double up your mat several times dues the class or have some cushioning handy. Enjoy!

I wouldn't consider this beginner but I mostly enjoyed the video. A brisk pace.

sofiav, posted on April 22, 2014

can't see video!!!

TARAD, posted on April 19, 2014

This was a very interesting practice. The combination & execution of the poses was very unique & kept the heart rate elevated. I would say it was intermediate and I really enjoyed it. I did this class immediately following her first video. Feels good!

TARAD, posted on April 19, 2014

Sometimes I am looking for a more active yoga session & this meets the need. There is still good focus on the poses but with a little more fire added to the flow. Only 23 minutes allows you to fit it into your schedule easily. Colleen Saidman is a consummate instructor.
