Good work. I really liked the chin breathing exercise. I was sweating a bit by the end.

Nice class, but the music at the end is too loud and drowns out the teacher. The music is too edgy and does not promote relaxation at the end.

This is the Yoga Download I have stayed with. I want to lose weight and it is simply melting away with this class.
I started with the 45 min class and had to give up as I was exhausted but I persevered and am now doing the 60 min class with relative ease. That s an improvement over only a couple of days.
Dawnelle is wonderful and I feel challenged and capable as I keep up with her. I am only an intermediate /beginner but can manage this. Usually I do not like flow yoga as I find it hard to keep up but this is fine for me.
Am getting ready to move on soon to Yoga for Weight Loss 2.

I must give this class a 5. Honestly, she s great the flow was nice intensity excellent. I wanted to throw in the towel halfway through and I ve done some of the classes rated advanced so don t let the beginner class title fool you. Keep pressing on through you ll make it. WONDERFUL CLASS,!!!

This is a great class - don t let the "1" or "advanced beginner" level fool you - it IS a great workout! Out of the many yogadownload.com classes I have done, this ranks up near the top for me.

Dawnelle is awesome. Yes, this is a fast-paced class, but that s why it says intermediate.... it s GREAT!

Your body will definitely warm up and you will certainly feel it the day of and the next day. With that said, I don t LOVE this class because of the quick pace and maybe it is further than an "advanced beginner" class as it is promised. But with practice it becomes easier. Just don t be surprised if it moves along too quickly at first.

I liked this class for the following reasons. 1. Dawnelle gave good descriptions of her poses and even cued us to the next move. 2. This one included a video, which is better for beginners and visual learners 3. The poses flowed very naturally and felt good-no awkward transitions and balanced each other out. 4. I did this weight loss 1 as a warm up to the weight loss 2, which was a very good idea-even though they repeated each other, the weight loss 2 was more intense and faster paced.

There s a skip toward the end of the 30 minute class that drives me nuts -- but I love this. My body heat stays up for hours & I can just feel the excess weight melting off.

I liked how long we held the poses and the level of sweat generated (some but not ridiculous). I am in between intermediate and advanced levels of yoga--take note if you are actually a beginner.
My only complaints--I didn t like how rehearsed she sounded, but then again I am new to online classes. I was expecting more of a yoga-teacher-in-a-class-who-happened-to-be-taped thing. The other thing was the music. At the end, it sounded like something from a horror movie. It made me really uncomfortable.

An excellent workout, particularly loved the fish pose at the end which stretched my back out nicely to finish. Plenty of sweat, nice flow, not too complex, simple repetition helped with keeping one breath, one movement because you knew what was coming next. Poses held for the right amount of time - not too long.

Phew! Hot work - glad I was at home and could take my t-shirt off!! Really enjoyed it though and would certainly recommend. Thank you for leaving the music on for a few minutes of savasana - I m usually very bad for just jumping straight up, but the music made me lie for a while.

I love this class. It s simple poses, but the flow is fast enough to really get you sweating. I wouldn t call the 60 minute class beginner, but maybe the shorter versions are less intense.

Dawnelle is amazing! This is a vigorous and challenging class that had me sweating like the vinyasa classes at Sunstone. Nice Savasanah music as well. Can we get some of these classes with more upbeat yoga music as is played in the hot yoga studios?

Loved it! Great class with nice flow. Will definitely do again!

This is a great workout and i feel so much better after working through the poses. I find myself feeling so much better about life and my joints feel lubricated and it eases the pain of my arthritus.
By Leslie Keener | Thursday, January 21, 2010
This is a hard class! I m not sure if this is ideal for beginners in that it s very challenging; however, it makes sense and the poses aren t hard to understand. So, it s easy to understand, but hard to do. I really do like it, though. Once I do it, I feel like I can conquer anything. It is a good challenge and my favorite yogadownload that I m doing these days.

I really enjoyed this class - it was fun and challenging, however beware if you have any neck problems - the neck/chin compressions would most likely aggravate any existing problems pretty bad.

This is a great class! Your heart really gets pumping and you feel great after. I am an intermediate student and felt challenged by the intensity of the class. The cuing was great and I never felt lost during the class. Simply awesome!
