    1. yes, you can start with this one and when the following day 2 and day 3 videos come out, this one will have prepared you. : ) thanks +TruthHasSpoken 

    2. +TruthHasSpoken
      Here is part 2. We just posted it today. let us know what you think.

      Yoga For Weight Loss & Fat Burning Workout – 30 Minute Beginners Flexibility Class – Day 2

  1. I stopped half way through. She talks entirely too much which made it difficult for me to clear my mind and recieve the benifits of yoga. It didnt feel like a smooth flow. I’m sure the routine may have done what it was intended for but there was too much time waiting while she was talking.

    1. bpjog25 I actually prefer the talking through the video I’ve watched other trainers that don’t talk or provide instruction throughout and as a beginner it makes it difficult for me having to have my eyes glued the television set through the entire workout rather than allowing the instructor to talk me through it which allows me to focus better on my own posture and form. but that’s just my own personal preference. not saying that it’s right or wrong either way.
      now if I could only commit to doing this every day then I probably wouldn’t need the talking through the video all of the time LOL.

    2. Blah Blah I respect your opinion. This comment was left two years ago so I honestly didn’t even remember watching the video at first lol. 2 years ago I’d just started doing yoga as well and it just helped me clear my mind when I could see the pose and then be in the pose quietly for a moment to better focus on how my body was feeling. Neither is the wrong way. I hope you reach your goal to doing this everyday. It’s great for the mind and body!

  2. I recently caught the flu so I thought about doing yoga at home instead of going to the gym. I feel AMAZING after doing this!!! 🙂

  3. Are you sure that it is for beginners? 🙁 I am dying now..it was very hard for me to do this poses..i am not flexible person thats why it was so hard..but anyway, I did it!

    1. Congrats! Yes, this is for beginners. Keep in mind that people come to yoga from many different states of health, so Beginners is a general term and everyone will relate to the practice in their own way. Your resistance to flexibility is part of the process in the beginning and over time you will advance into states of feeling more energized through the coordination of your strength WITH flexibility. Keep practicing my friend!  

    2. Ok, I am trying my best!:) now it is quite ok for me. I am practicing every day. So, every day is more better than others :)

    3. +Courtney Bell Hi Courtney, I’ve done yoga before but have been out of it for quite awhile overseas. Trying to return. I’ve bot some tendinitis in my right arm and supraspinatus now and just about everything from my wrist to my throat and around the back hurts with this. I noticed that I got really nauseous at the end on the roll onto your side and sit up part (? tells me how weak that whole side of my body and muscles are (not to mention out of alignment) Helps?

    4. I feel the same way, just from observing, it seems like, regardless of body type, some of these poses seem a bit trying for some one just starting out. I have very dad lower back pain, and keeping my lower back “grounded” is not something even fathomable for me right now, but some of this stuff seems so complicated, I’m not sure I want to even try it.

    5. +Stygean Hugh I thought it was really complicated at first too, but it’s because Courtney does a good job of explaining what your muscles need to be doing.  If somebody just does the exercises based on what it looks like then you aren’t working the specific muscles. The first day I just watched the video.  Days 2 and 3 I did the exercises, focusing on technique.  Day 4 I could really focus on relaxing and working the core and not worry about technique so much.  BTW – My husband has bad lower back pain (compressed discs) so he tried this workout with me.  He has trouble with some poses and when his back starts tightening up he stretches it.

  4. I watched this vid first, before trying any of it and there are some real issues I have here as far as this being a “beginners” thing. First of all, I don’t know that very many people can draw their knees into their chest to hug them comfortably that are just starting out. For me this about the most tense position of the work out, because I cannot breath in a position where my lungs are so compressed, and relax. My arms are not even long enough to wrap them around my shins like that, and that position alone seems like something I would have to build up to, as opposed to just jumping in to. I did get 13 min in to the work out, much farther than I thought I would, though I would still encourage rethinking the title as a beginners thing. This is def not for some one just starting out.

    1. +Stygean Hugh It really doesn’t get much easier than that. Honestly, yoga, just like any other type of exercise is something you have to work up to. Doing it often will help you become more flexible and be able to get into the positions more easily. At least you tried and if you keep trying you will see that you will gradually get better. Keep it up and you’ll be surprised at what positions you can do that you couldn’t before! Trust me! But everyone is different, of course. What may take someone only days or weeks to do, may take others months. But the key is to keep it up! Good luck!

    2. +Stygean Hugh I agree. She should show the techniques by guiding someone who is truly beginning and is truly overweight.

    3. +Stygean Hugh I completely agree! I found as a beginner the Body Positive Yoga channel was a lot more helpful as the modifications for larger women made it a lot more easier for a beginner like me and I have been able to slowly work my way up to ‘beginner” videos like this one.

  5. I remember buying a “Beginners” dvd before the days of YT. She was racing through moves..We’re going from the Downward-Facing-Dog pose to the Dolphin-Plank pose!! Why is it these women can’t quite grasp the meaning of the word “BEGINNER”? I cant get my legs anywhere near 90 degree vertical whilst locked completely straight! The backs of my knees & Hamstrings feel like they’re about to snap at 60 degrees! Hows about some tips for us ” Beginners” on how to get there? Or…dont worry boy & girls if you cant quite manage this position, just go as far as you can with it…Beginners my arse!

  6. To all the people complaining and claiming this is not for actual beginners: What were you expecting? A nap? This is fairly easy, you are suppoused to feel the stretches, this is yoga. Is not Courtney’s fault you are not used to it.

    1. Nani TG with any exercise it’s always difficult the first two weeks. I agree with you. It doesn’t really matter what you’re doing either cardio kickboxing, spin class, aerobics, Pilates, you have to keep trying and work through the first two weeks to get used to any exercise. It takes time to learn new types of workouts. I’m going to try this starting tomorrow I’ll come back and comment each day letting you know how I feel about it for the next 2 weeks. If I get through the two weeks of this video I’ll go to the 2ond one in the series and then switch again to the third in two more weeks.

  7. This is for Beginners ! I could barely keep up as a beginner and some of poses seem intermediate or advanced. Went so fast I had no idea if my positions were correct and if breathing was correct and just gave up early.

    1. +PsycheTruth that’s confusing. Beginner should be beginner, not different levels of beginner. This is not really a beginners video.

    2. I realize this was posted 2 years ago, but I am a beginner just doung yoga for the first time and I didn’t find this very difficult. There were a few times when I paused the video while I moved to the position so I wouldn’t miss what she was saying, but the stretches all felt really good and since I was just taking my time and getting used to each pose, I know tomorrow I’ll be able to do it faster and focus more on what my muscles are doing

  8. I’m trying hard to shed 30 pounds by spring of next year. I’m completely new to yoga, and I could seriously feel the burn. Here’s to hoping this and some long overdue cardio helps me reach my goal.
    If anyone wants to share any success stories, they’d be greatly appreciated. 🙂

    1. +JulesLovesYouTube I’m a self-conscious 13 year old trying to lose weight. Also try getting a pedometer app, they’re free I use Google Fit, I walked 2.4 miles today and done around 8,500 steps and that’s just doing my normal daily routine (School).

    2. +Fetus Lara Wow, wish I had your resolve when I was a self-conscious 13 your old. Still trying to motivate myself now pfft.

    1. lol I can’t for the life of me stick my legs up straight in the air like her. Or do the downward dog 😔

  9. If I could all of this then why would i need yoga in first place.. this is so difficult for a beginner..

    1. Keep practicing! I”m 63 and I’m doin’ it! If you can’t do it as long as she does, do as long as you can. Sometimes I’m 10 seconds short on that downward dog or on the plank one. Sometimes I do beginners yoga for back pain, instead! Lots of good beginners yoga…switch it Up! Love, light, and laughter! Keep up the good work!

  10. I’m a 265 pound male, with some spinal issues and absolutely no flexibility, this was my first ever attempt at yoga, and I’m proud of what I was able to do. I always put yoga off because I figure you needed to already be flexible, but now that I’ve done it, i realize I was lossening up through the the poses, thank you for starting me on this journey 🙂

    1. I know you said this a yeat ago but hopefully you’ll still see this. Thank you so much for not whining about it! I’m not heavy, but I’m Very unfit and as far from flexible as you could be and I found each pose to be challenging but not ‘completely unbearable to the point where I had to give up’ like so many people are saying. And in only 2 days I noticed a very obvious difference in how long I could hold each pose and how far I could bend/stretch. The whole point is that there should be a challenge in it so that your body is using energy and developing muscle! It’s truly sad to see so many people shame the video or the teacher herself because they think it’s too hard 🙁

  11. I’m going to try and do this every day, it surprised me how in couldn’t get my legs to be straight when I lifted them. That’ll be my goal

    1. Kelsey Kramer same, I want to go into figure skating so I’m trying to get fit and flexible now so I can one day do what I dream.

    2. I know you said this a year ago but I’m brand new to yoga (started yesterday) and I can already tell an obvious difference doing it today compared to the first time. I hope you had the same experience!

    1. I agree. At the very least she could offer some alternative poses for those of us who do not yet have the strength to hold each pose. For me the part where she lifts her hips up with her legs up in the air was difficult as I have back problems and thus weak muscles there. It would be nice to see what alternate or modified pose I could do instead, but I had to just sit there as I could not do the pose.

    2. Yoga can lean you up if you’d stop complaining and just do it!!! It works but you’d only know that if you stick to it.
