Laurette Willis has designed a very Scripturally sound yoga workout for Christians. Each and every posture is linked to a related Scripture verse, and the Scriptures are repeated so that you're learning the verses as you're doing the moves.

Laurette, herself, is friendly and engaging.

I didn't like that, in the introduction, the camera kept switching back and forth from front view to side view. This was very distracting, especially since Laurette didn't turn her head when the camera went to a side view.

Also, I found the music and soft-spoken instruction throughout the workout to be almost too relaxing -- it made me sleepy!

The instructions and postures were easy to follow, all of them being slow & steady. The old yoga postures are given new names with Christian symbolism, like "The Flapping Tent" (cat pose), "Little Child" (child's pose), and several others.

Included are also an Abs workout (using the more abs-focused postures), and a Power Sequence (the same overall postures in more rapid succession).

A good workout, especially if you love to learn Scripture!
