I rate these as intermediate routines. Colleen moves quickly & does not waste any time. I like that Colleen adds some hops & jumps to the routines to get the heart rate up. This dvd contains SO many options and so much footage, it is a must have for all yoga lovers. I found all of the segments to be unique from each other so you really do have a ton of variety. Colleen is a great instructor and provides great form pointers. I received this dvd to review.
