“Veteran yoga instructors Andrea Fournet and Bryan Fowler recognize that “one size does not fit all” in this yoga instructional for both beginners and seasoned yogis. Working on an attractive set with Asian-style furnishings and backed by calming piano music, the teachers lead viewers through a warm-up and strengthening series of poses…Both sessions conclude with a relaxation segment. Clear instructions, a comfortable studio set, good camera work, and helpful yoga adaptations make this useful for both seasoned and new yoga students.” –Candace Smith, Booklist Online
“Yoga DVD collection development is not an easy task, since many discs will not be appropriate for every audience…VariYoga is a perfect disc for any collection. It is brief yet demonstrates simple and accessible Hatha yoga poses. VariYoga is recommended for all libraries, especially in communities that have a strong interest in therapeutic exercise.”—Manya Shorr, Sacramento P.L., CA
