Excellent yoga clearly explained from a master teacher, in easy to follow steps
Howard Napper is a quiet unassuming teacher with a great deal of knowledge and ability. He demonstrates each position calmly and accurately, without any of the complicated Sanskrit ideology or naming that often obscures what we are trying to learn. There is no sense of pressure to do more or to feel inadequate if you can barely start! it is all calm, collected, simply described and carefully demonstrated, so you can do it in easy steps. The session is broken down into logical stages, so you can find your way easily and quickly. Each starts with a gradual warm-up. Overall an excellent DVD.

Good product and value for money
I bought this dvd because I've tried one of howard napper's dvds before, and find that he goes at a moderate pace making it easier to follow what he is doing and allowing time for your body to get the most out of the postures. The upper and lower body yoga is fairly easy and seemed to me to be more like a warm up for the yoga flows (dynamic yoga) that followed. Then there is the chill out yoga which can be like a warm down, or a routine to follow when you need to de-stress. It was made quite a long time ago so some of the scenery is a bit basic. But overall all he goes slow enough to be able to follow properly and what he does is firmly rooted in classical yoga tradition.
a very good buy for yoga beginners.
very easy to follow yoga dvd for all levels.it is very clear and for the money was very good value.i would recommend this dvd to anyone starting out with yoga.
Howard Napper's Total Yoga dvd
An excellent dvd from Howard Napper demonstrating various aspects of Hatha yoga. He has a nice relaxed style which flows easily. Highly recommended.
Do-able yoga with the relaxing voice of Howard Napper
This is the best Yoga dvd I've bought. It's very easy to follow and comes in four main sections. In the first section is Upper Body Yoga which I've found brilliant for my neck and shoulders. Then Lower Body Yoga which help strengthen the back and legs. You then have Dynamic Yoga which puts it all into a sequence and works with your core strength. And finally Chillout Yoga for strength, suppleness and relaxation. In fact you've got 3 hours of yoga instruction on this DVD! And theres more... They included a DVD of Alphastate, top class music for yoga by Nigel Champion. I had a look on Amazon at Alphastate and it was about £12! You can buy Upper and Lower body Yoga individually but if you're really interested then you would want to go for this dvd as you get a whole lot more for your money. This is a lovely relaxing dvd, with a relaxing audio track running all the way through. It makes yoga do-able. Just start with the upper body section and you're shoulders with feel supple in no time! I'm sure someone on here will be selling one, but I'm not selling mine! ;-)Read full review
