I am an extremely new beginner.  This is not good for a beginner.  I can't even get my body into a dogward dog position.  This video should NOT be labeled for beginner.

Very rushed for a beginner video. I wanted to relax and listen, not be stressed and have to watch and change everything I'm doing every couple seconds :/
Patty Lewis
Love this! Fast enough to keep me from getting too bored and slow enough to relax.  Short, sweet and uncomfortably comfortable.  Can't achieve every pose but Rome wasn't built in a day either.  Thanks Tara!
Kate Dubbs
This is a great routine but it's a bit quick, I'd like to follow along with the video without pausing and un-pausing it but still be able to spend a little more time in each pose. Also ... Tara sounds a bit like an auctioneer while she's explaining the poses.
Lyleen Azwan
why is she talking to fast? arent this suppose to be calming..i dont feel calm when she talk to fast..but i like the yoga tho..
Cathy Bloniarz
Dear Lord, I felt as if I were in a marathon.  Way too fast for beginner.
Aysun Sofiya
The video is too fast and the music really doesn't fit to yoga. I was't able to relax and do the poses correctly as a beginner because they weren't explained.
Alejandra Diaz
This is great, but it's a bit too fast for us beginners. But thank you for uploading and sharing your techniques:)
sxm
Nearly killed myself.
Luke Skywalker
Thank you. I like that your videos are to the point. Direct and informative, very well done. I look forward to trying more.
Anisa K
6:09 I stumbled over :/
Joyce Lee
ok this is not as easy as she makes it LOL
The1Ringoe
you talk far too fast for beginners
TK PrinPrin
It look so easy, smooth, flow like water when see you do it. But it's not when I try .. :)
Paskal S
Nice routine... But it's going way too fast!
Zachary Glade Johnson
I've been following this video all week as I wake up and before I work out and I've been enjoying it. I already think I've become more flexible and my muscles feel relaxed.
SugarSkull
i liked this video a lot but found the background music a bit distracting :/
Kelly Nguyen
Is it strange that I find this difficult?
ellen crates
240lbs and haven't worked out in years.... I didn't die.  We will chalk that up to miraculous.  yaaaay
Emille Kent
we would much appreciate if you could slow down your speech to match your lovely body movement......which will highlight your inner emotional settlement..all together a superb soothing performance, thanks.
deequu
Voice really annoyed me at the beginning but i tried to get past it and use to it, its a great video :) 
Sue Hamilton
BEST YOGA ROUTINE IN THE WORLD!!!
Sweetpotato Inthegarden
this goes a bit too fast,especially for a beginner. If you really want to open up your body more, you need to pause the video and breath more into the pose until you feel relaxed. Too fast paced for beeginners
Kelsey J.
i'm gonna do this every morning, THANKS
Quincy Cunningham
How long should I stick with the beginner video before I move forward?
Shan Shan
I enjoyed the poses and definitely felt more relaxed and stretched out, but she rushed so much we could have held the poses for atleast 14 seconds each! sheesh. That said once I get the hang of it I really did enjoy the video
Jessica Saggio
Thank you so much for this! I've never done yoga before but I followed this routine and honestly it was so easy and I feel so great. Will without a doubt be trying to do this everyday!
cemre aydın
i made it today :) amazing feeling.. make that after a hard exercise
Anne-Y-Way
For a yoga beginner, this is way too fast -So if you're doing this video as a beginner, I would strongly advise you really just get into the basic-basic-poses such as forward fold/downward dog, not to mention that before doing all that you should learn how to breathe 'yoga-style' first, and stay there for as long as you need to until you feel your body relax and soften up to the pose (don't overstretch and try to get to this point quickly!) - TAKE YOUR TIME and don't try to keep up with her as a beginner - just take up the poses and really do them slowly. :)
Raja Rb
who just stopped midway and just watched her XD
k den
DAMN this is harder then I thought?!?!?
Ineta L
the pose rotation is wonderful but is the instructor in a hurry? i got too lost and couldn't keep up at multiple parts. also the speech was very fast which made it not relaxing at all. 
swifitewiththescript
Man that was so rushed I felt more anxious afterwards
hauntingshadows x
you gotta change the music. its not relaxing at all
pseudonym of a nerd
I liked this video but I wish the music was a little more soothing...
Zenia Lüpke
The music really killed it for me - couldn't focus at all.
LilithFilth
Geez, can she speak any quicker!?
zikashika flora
i really like TARA and hows she perform it. thank you. i really like it
karpethon
thank you! this is great for me.
Agnes Dall
Thank you! It was really awesome! I enjoyed doing this!
Rasa Banel
good workout,hate music
Abby5734
I have now realized I'm a lot more non flexible than I thought...
Evelyn Carrillo
I feel as if she went way too fast for a beginner 
Doug Grinbergs
Other job is an auctioneer? (;-) (;-)
Planet Tiffany
I would've enjoyed this a lot more if the music was soothing, not frenetic.
Maria Reyes
her voice relaxes me... i don't know why xD but i really love her voice :3
Hannah Moore
I love this video I just wish it was a bit slower. I had to keep pausing so I had enough time. It'd be nice to just flow. But other than that I love doing this routine in the mornings!
Frankie Ellis Mobile Beauty
I think this video is far too fast paced for beginners. Poses aren't explained and there is not enough time to move onto the next. It all feels a bit rushed especially for a beginner as stated. It's all a bit fast! I think this would be better for beginners if it was a little slower paced inbetween poses.
Shari Murray
I do this everyday its very good
Windy Girl
I loved the constant movement in this video and as opposed to regular yoga, which I find to be too static for me. It may come from having past experience in dance.
tina sun
i love the yoga routine but pls change the background music into something relaxing and light 
Louise Alric
I can't concentrate and relax with this music in the background. Too bad...
LouLou
You do them too quick! Beginners need time to see the pose and then do it. I likes the poses but just found it went too quickly
kysnowie
She should talk slower since this is for beginners,I find it hard to concentrate on her and on myself at the same time.
ashley j
WHY IS EVERYONE COMPLAINING? It's a quick short video for you to LEARN the moves. Then, you can do it by YOURSELF at home at your own pace. 
CartmanKyle StanKenny
I really liked the excercises, but man… ur running through it… wish it was more like a real yoga class.
Tracy Mokake
This was WAY to fast.
mcars100
Begginers my arse
Nomadic Akasha
I found this AMAZING and actually did it two times in a row. I love her stretch workouts because they really help me to go deeper into my muscles. The more you do it--the more flexible you become. It takes practice...so be patient. :)
georgetaylor100
Damn, this felt like yoga on speed, i had to stop the vid a lot in order to fully do the poses justice. SLOW DOWN
Jennifer Davis
Thank you Tara, you have changed my life through yoga!
Tomieka
The pace was a little fast but it contains good gentle stretches that i found helpful. Thanks Tara!
Alej Torres-Zayas
Thank you so much. I always wanted to do yoga and the beginner videos really help me!! Really grateful
Melody Daniel Luna
Loved the routine but I wished it was at like a third of the speed.
Nahelli Ch
Can't stand the music =/
Janet Bloom
I wish she didn't speak so quickly and moved between poses more slowly.
lisa olsen
thank you much appreciated
Maegan James
I liked it! First time doing yoga and I really do feel more flexible. Thanks Tara!
David Pitton
i wanted to subscribe, then I noticed ithe channel says "livestrong WOMAN", therefore didn't ;(
TheBunBun54321
I can't be the only dude trying this out haha. Great video...my parting words are DAMN aint she fine!
GetYourGreensOn
Good video, but annoying way of talking..
angel rodriguez
I love the video but i cant follow along the way she talks normal, then fast, then slow again?? :/
Steven Senger
This type of video is wonderful for me. I don't have an hour and a half each morning for a full on yoga routine. I get a nice quick ten-minute stretch out, and feel great. I liked the direct communication; she doesn't sound like she's on tranquilizers. Granted, I have very little experience, but I still think this video is great for me, a beginner.
Lovely Fancy World
3:55 when i do this pose my upper arm starts to hurt :c
Marobobb
Honestly this video is amazing! I tried a couple before this one and they were too confusing or boring lol. But this one is truly amazing! She is so easy to follow and gives precise directions. After doing this I felt amazing and relaxed. All of the tension in my muscles was gone and I even tried having my mom do it lol didnt work very well tho. I will definitely try more yoga after this because I am in love!!
Allison Statman
This is one of my favorite routines . Whenever I'm short on time or motivation I do this and it really opens up my body . Thanks for another awesome video ,Tara.
Nim Monika
OMG...!!!! I'm the beginner and I can't make it ><
Samuel David Adams
I have used Tara's videos off and on as a daily practice it works great for my schedule and she has a great flow for any stage of yoga.
Prajwol Uprety
you make things look way too easy. Hats off! 
manel kh
I appreciate the effort you put into making this video, but the background music is really annoying and reduces concentration and I think the coach speaks too much and too fast, maybe that's her way but for a beginner I didn't fully enjoy this.
Lisa Jey Davis
i agree - i wish the music wasn't techno… wtf? it's suppose to be relaxing and soothing. not lounge-y
Justin Tyler
I really like these videos. My girlfriend and i have been doing them together.we started with the flexibility video and strength building then moved onto core. I think core would have been difficult if it was the first yoga we had tried. The reason she talks like that is because she is keeping tempo with the way you should be breathing. Keep making videos you are amazing
Zowy vO
I can't even hold my feet completely to the ground while I bend over so my hand can touch the ground
Carmen Harber
nice moves, but I found that there was not enough time on each move and towards the end I even got lost. Just a little more time for us beginners to perfect each move would be great
eFit30
I really liked your video.
only human.
the way she's talking is funny
louise rosser
Is yoga good for people who have depression and anxiety
izahia1990
really, thank you for your training!!! I just decide to start morning yoga and i see some vidéo of it for beginner... in fact you're training is the best i've seen until now. thank you very much it was very relaxing 😄😄.
Piggie Bonita
movements are too fast and the music is distracting
Maria D.
She' s a great teacher BUT: these movements  are too fast and hard for beginners; this seems more like a gymnastics or some stretching, than a yoga class; her continue voice kills me every second I listen to her and the music is not appropriate. Yoga is first of all a spiritual way of seeing and living life, not a gymnastics or a run !
Whoops
You are a pleasure to watch but your voice makes me lose interest.  Talk too fast and hard to follow.  Your sentences run together.. Yoga should be relaxing/
Kaleigh Renee
way way way too fast. no flow. no stretch. no time. rushed. awful
Dasa Hnatova
The best beginner practice
Nina Jansson
I'm sorry, but the music is horrible! Not at all relaxing. I was going to try this, but I'll have to look for something else....
drew crosland
I can say from firsthand knowledge yoga is amazing and used by Americas special operations forces to increase flexability, range of motion, and functional strength all contributing to tendon and ligament upkeep to prevent injuries or recover. 3 times a week. Stick with a routine each month and then switch. If your a beginner rewatch to slow it down or pause until ready to move on. BREATHE she doesn't imply that enough but BREATHE get that down before doing ANYTHING. Cheers:)

Lisa Luminaire
I love starting my day with this very easy body opener and warm up :)
Rachel Hickman
This was so fast! I enjoy feeling the stretch more through longer pauses with each position. I also think the tone is a little rushed and aggressive, rather than more smooth and calming.
EllosBird
I thought it was a little fast too.. so I went to slow the speed setting down and accidentally chose a faster speed. That was hilarious.
