I agree. I am tired of seeing'beginner' fitness videos with people who are already in good shape, I am not. I am 35 pounds overweight and although I don't consider myself a beginner, my weight prevents me from doing more advanced moves. I love the video but it is definitely not for the beginner.
Would love to try but can not be on knees hurts way to much.

problem....they only show the beginning pose half the time....it went okay since I watched the video before attempting....but if I hadn't would have missed some moves as their was no vocalization only video
I love that beginner, intermediate and advanced are all shown. I'm 245 lbs. now (and was 368 when I had started )and have found that yoga & Th- Chi has helped with my balance to the point that I am getting away from using my cane. I haven't had to use it for 3 weeks now. I'd been using one for over 7 yrs. I also have 2 long rods in my back. Don't be afraid to try something new and don't be surprised if one of these days you are doing intermediate or advanced positions. I am now walking proof that it helps in many ways....Also we all have limitations. Don't let it make you give up on yourself. You're worth the effort.
The only people I see doing these "beginner" videos are neither even slightly heavy nor are they anywhere near beginner. I would love to see a video where the extras are not body beautiful--muscular, toned, very slim.
I would love to see somebody obese like me trying to do this in the video. It was too hard. I could barely lift my body out of the floor to do the part with the weight (i decided to leave the weights for another occasion). I think I'll stick with something more beginner oriented and after a few months give this routine another try. :/

As a beginner, watching the person using the blocks and doing the modified movement was very helpful and encouraging.
What is it with these videos that never play? So frustrating!

Ok I tried again. Just before the point where it blipped (just as she is introducing the hip stretches) i fast-forwarded it a little with the curser on the timer and the rest of the video worked fine. This might work for others too....
Side plank push-ups holding a dumbell? Bahahahahahahah They make it look SO easy!

Looks really good, but stopped working several minutes in.....dissapointing.
