I find this very difficult to watch/do. The attitude of the teacher and little judgements about the student (e.g. ‘she’s a bit camera shy’ within the first few minutes) make me feel uncomfortable. There needs to be more description of what to do and fewer comments on the student.
I don’t think this class sets the right tone for week 1 of a beginner programme. Is there an alternate that is kinder, more welcoming and less judgemental (I.e. different teacher?).

Dear Bethan. Thank you for your comment. I am sorry to hear that you felt uncomfortable during the class. I can assure you that non of the comments where made as judgement about the student. Amanda (teacher) and Harriet (students) are very good friends and they both feel that Yoga should not be taken "too seriously" and so they tried to keep things light-hearted in the filming.
Saying that, we all have teachers we don't feel comfortable with and teachers we can "connect" to much better, so I can suggest the following classes as replacement. I hope this helps and that you will enjoy the classes. Please feel free to email me directly with any questions or concerns amit@yoopod.com
Best, Amit

Hi Lynne. Thank you for your comment. Amanda's classes are indeed fast and challenging... I would suggest trying Norman's classes http://www.yoopod.com/yoga/teachers/norman-blair/ or Liz's basic level classes http://www.yoopod.com/yoga/teachers/liz-lark/. It may also be a good idea to combine some Pilates classes with the above Yoga classes to help you feel stronger and flexible with the Yoga practice. I hope this helps. Best, Amit

Sorry too fast for me. I am a sixty year old starting yoga for first time. I'm afraid I need a slower class
