"Although I am sure Kimberly is a fantastic teacher in person, this CD is simply awful! I gave it two good trys and put it in the junk drawer.
I am a yoga CD junkie, so I am comparing to a fairly wide range. Rather than spending time on proper alignment or saftey, several-minute blocks are wasted on uninspired "inhale, exhale" instructions. The instructor's patronizing "teacher voice" lacks humor and I started to wonder if she knew what she was teaching.
So, better options: Lauren Peterson's Yogi's companion is a great all around, and the one that I come back to with excitement. Cindi Lee and Natasha Rizopolous (sp?) are both good for straightforward, detailed instruction. Shiva Reah and Brian Kest are sometimes silly, but laughter helps with the really powerful poses. Ana Forest and Baron Baptiste give incredible core workouts in a gentle style. Am I forgeting anyone? Probably, but you get my point, there are lots of good CDs out there. Unfortunatly, this isn't one of them."
A Little Too Fast, Strange Music, & No chart of poses?

"This yoga CD is an okay workout worthy of 3 stars. However, I personally found that she moves too quickly from pose to pose. I have do yoga practices by Eion Finn (DVD), Brian Kest (CD), and Baron Baptiste (DVD) all of which are challenging workouts yet they don't move as fast as this one. I was trying to do one breath with each pose but I couldn't because she moved so darn fast. I would also warn others that the music used in the Sun Salutations is very stressful! It is this strange electronic sound that was very unpleasant & distracting. The other segments had music that was very nice though. Like I said, I've done yoga for awhile so I didn't think I'd miss having a chart with the poses. I was wrong. It is hard to follow some of her instructions and a reference guide would have helped. I imagine this CD would be frustrating and difficult for a beginner. You might consider this buying this CD but I wouldn't recommend it as your first choice."
Not the best...

"I agree with other reviews that find the music or the pace of this CD distracting. I enjoy much of the CD, especially the hip openers, but even experienced yoga practictioners might have trouble following some of the CD without something written - even a Sanskrit list of names - to describe the poses. I found "Yoga with Ateeka", with its excellent companion booklet, much more well-paced, and her voice and music more tranquil as well."
