As someone who has been doing yoga for some time on occassion, I still look for the word "beginners" and this is a an excellent DVD, perfect for my level. Not for the basic beginner (as I recommend formal training so you can have form correction). Other excellent things about this DVD: there are 2 practices: SOLAR and LUNAR. All do-able in a short time frame. Your instructor's voice over is clear, positive, and helpful. I am very glad I discovered this DVD alongside other titles from the Acacia series, For Beginners, it's a wonderful addition to my regular rotation of Yoga DVDs.
