I did it! Actually went through and used the exercise DVD that I borrowed from the library. I even returned the DVD on-time last night, avoiding any late charges.
Fat Free Yoga is definitely not for beginners. I didn't know anything about Kundalini yoga prior to doing this routine, and based on my experience would advise yoga and overall fitness beginners to pass this one by until you are a little more fit.
The "narrator", Ravi Singh, doesn't explain the poses well enough and does not explain how the exercises will help whatever area he's focusing on. Breathing and actions must be rapid, but you are supposed to keep your eyes closed, so you never really know what's going on.
Once I had more experience in yoga, and a little more stamina and cardiovascular ability, I might come back to this, but I'm unlikely to do so. I think I'll be sticking to more traditional aerobic workouts for now.
