I hate doing yoga! I have done numerous yoga classes and have six programs from the top yoga teachers, and I have to say Dean’s are the best by far. I’m in the gym five days a week training with weights and doing cardio, so yoga or any form of stretching is something I ignore or avoid to get down with my training A.S.A.P. I am the type that is on the move and active. I dislike yoga routines because they are long, hold certain poses way too long, and have the “soothing spiritual voice” to breathe and focus. I love Dean’s approach to yoga practice. His session are 30 minutes or less. I can target a body part I feel is tight/inflexible. I’m getting a workout and becoming flexible. Also, his bonus AB workout, excellent! I brought YOGA STRONG and YOGA EDGE and have gotten rid of my other yoga programs because those two are all I need. I would highly recommend these programs.
I love how the program set includes three different levels and each time you do it, it still kicks your butt and feels like a work out!
Judy Reeves –
Dean’s program videos are wonderful. I now have 5 program’s of these in my collection and move around for my classes. Dean’s instructions are easy to follow and he helps with proper form and positions. This program includes 3 program’s 1 each separated by levels ie beginner, intermediate and proficient.
Michael A. Younkins –
Definitely more workout than the Yoga Fix program but I like the ability to pick out the workout and that it progresses with multiple disks. Dean is excellent instructor.
CT Mom –
Great instruction and a wonderful workout in 30 minutes.
Excellent yoga system,
Can’t recommend enough.
Fun and enjoyable and works!!!
D. F. Jackowski –
I really like this program in addition to my strength training and cardio workouts.
Highly recommended! I have been doing these workouts for several weeks and have seen noticeable improvements to my posture and flexibility. Perhaps the most obvious change is that I can now place my palms on the floor with my legs fully straight. Prior to these workouts, I could not touch my toes. Interestingly, I don’t seem to have lost much (if any) strength despite only using weights once during this period.
I would not recommend this program. It is one of those modern non-yoga programs made for the masses, not real yoga at all. Also the setting is terrible, horrible background. Appears to be an amateur production.
Provided good instructions. Great program. I prefer yoga by a guy, just a preference. So glad I found this program.
Ricky Miles –
Great workout for a beginner. Dean takes the time to explain how to do the moves properly. I’ve been using these workouts as a warm up.
He isn’t very easy to follow and could’ve done so much better. Not very explanatory either.
This program is a guy in shorts stretching. NOT yoga. So boring and not challenging or even interesting at all. Just Dull. If you already enjoy power yoga or any level of yoga training/exercise workouts this is NOT for you or for anyone. There is no sense of inner calmness or sense of intensity when preforming the moves. You cannot call them yoga poses because they are not!!! Again you are looking at a guy in shorts stretching and discussing it at length until you are bored to tears. Beginners go any where else to get started with yoga. This is HORRIBLE.
The video quality is terrible. It’s like he filmed it by himself in his basement.
I really like this yoga program it really simple hard positions all I was missing yoga sounds recommended
Very nice and firm workouts. I would say it’s an athletic yoga, quite different.
Did run through the first lesson and think it will do the job, if I can begin doing the workouts.
All around good program. Great instructions. He offers descriptions and directions for each move that tell how to get into the position AND how to check if you’re doing it correctly and safely. It is not as intense as some workouts I’ve done, but it definitely works the muscles. I use it on off days from running.
Trip To Go –
While our Yoga studio was shut down for COVID-19, we started doing Yoga Fix with Dean at home. We LOVED and used Yoga Fix so much that I just bought Yoga Strong for more variety. We also LOVE Yoga Strong. Dean is very personable and helpful in his instructions. Yoga Fix is a bit easier and it felt like we improved our “sitting at the desk” posture on the very first day of the 5 days. Yoga Strong Level 1 was a nice challenge, but still easier than our 75 minute classes at the yoga studio. We feel that Levels 2 & 3 will be enough challenge and that these will be the only 2 yoga videos that we will use (I own many more).
Great workouts! I wish he had more program’s.
I decided to add yoga to my regular exercise routine of hiking, weightlifting and running to help with flexibility and recovery post strenuous workouts. I found Yoga Strong to be a great addition to my regular regime and now mix it in 3X/week with my other fitness routines. I have also found the Body by Yoga’s additional programs, such Yoga Edge great recovery stretching the day after a heavy workout. I highly recommend Body by Yoga’s program’s or online courses, especially for men just getting into Yoga and have limited flexibility.
K. B. Layne –
Prior to the Pandemic I went to the gym, stretched lifted weights and that was about it – thought I was in shape for a 56 year man – that is not the case. Dean quickly made me realize where I was deficient, Yoga will challenge you in ways you never thought of. I always thought is was a female workout, that is NOT the case, Dean has provided a new path for me to become stronger for not just my muscles, but ligaments, cartilage and bone structure. It is an intense and demanding workout that is incredibly well done from levels 1-3 and then the extra Abs workouts are awesome. No question this is quality and I will never stop doing Yoga, I am hooked, great job Dean!!
Just got this and started it last night . so far so good

I would call myself a strong intermediate, so when I saw this and read the reviews I was excited. I have been using the same Vinyasa videos forever and was ready for something different and more challenging. This was not it. Not only are the sessions too short (30 mins), they barely drew a sweat. Plus the dude constantly instructs and I find that so off putting. I like to hear my music, receive brief instruction, not be told what to do every second. Besides this was level two in the series. I purposely skipped level one hoping to avoid any basic instructions. Didn’t matter. He would not stop instructing. And the breathing was also off putting. Maybe not everyone will feel this way, but I was annoyed hearing him breathing so loudly through his nose. I’ve never had that reaction anywhere, with any video. I did here. The audio people should have noticed it was too loud and adjusted. It was like being next to someone in a class you can’t escape. You have no choice but to put up with it. I just wanted it all to end. But I wanted to finish it because I paid for it. I also wanted to see if I was wrong at any point. Nope. I really cannot see myself using this video again. This was poorly thought out IMO.
This is a great yoga video. if you can get through these, you’ve got a solid core, a clear mind and a strong body!
RONIN KILGANNON –
My husband and I have purchased three of the Body by Yoga programs: Yoga Boost, Yoga Fix, and now, Yoga Strong. Never disappointing, this series-done at three difficulty levels: beginner, intermediate, and expert-are very challenging but extremely rewarding as Dan helps you sculpt your body to how and where YOU want it to be. He shows you alternate techniques to doing the exercises whether you’re a neophyte of an expert. YOU WILL BE CHALLENGED, which is the point! My husband just started, but we see an immediate difference in our stamina, posture, and ability to sweat a lot and enjoy what we do and why we’re doing it! My words mean nothing until you try it our for yourselves. I promise and guarantee you will notice the difference!
BL Price –
I started with Level 1 and stuck with this level for several weeks, doing the workouts 1-2 times a week to supplement my usual fitness regimen. I did enjoy the workouts and noticed some improvement in my strength and especially my balance, not so much with flexibility. I was really looking forward to moving up to Level 2. I was SO DISAPPOINTED to see that all three Level 2 workouts are basically the same EXACT workouts as Level 1, just with 3-4 extra, more difficult poses sandwiched in about 3/4 of the way into the workout. I feel this was a very lazy approach to making this program. After weeks of doing Level 1, I was ready for a fresh NEW workout to keep me interested and motivated. I was also very disappointed that the Abs “bonus” workout is not actually part of the program but requires downloading something from the Internet.
I am a weightlifter and am in extremely good shape. This yoga series is challenging me regardless of the shape I am in! It demands a different kind of muscle engagement that complements one’s usual workouts. This series leaves me sweating!
Christopher Robshaw –
This is what I was looking for as a good workout focused on strength, conditioning and flexibility, without tearing up my joints. Well presented, relaxed in attitude but will get you sweating!
Very well tailored yoga work without complicated poses and excessive repetitions. Very easy to follow instructions. Even after hard workouts, I find this yoga very restorative.
Great ! Shipped fast and love the yoga
The moves are well explained. Nothing chatty . I like ut
Great workout. Enjoy Dean’s (BBY) other workouts as well. Recommend.
Mnr A. Jordaan –
It is the first time that I have done Yoga, Dean is a very good instructor, he tells you exactly which muscles you are working or stretching. As an athlete it has helped allot, I don’t have the stiffness and soreness the day after anymore. I can highly recommend all his program’s because I have them all, If you do the sessions you will have a happy result! Thank you Dean!
Ms. Average –
Poses, sequencing and instruction are ok if you come from an exercise background but have never done yoga. This would be too easy for someone who has a power vinyasa flow background.
Laura Altenbach –
Great yoga workout for those who are not experts!! Definitely helped me loose weight!
I had rotator cuff surgery about 6 months ago. I started with the Yoga Boost which I enjoyed so much I purchased the yoga strong. I will tell you this my flexibility, strength as well as stamina has greatly increased. I am slowly lifting more weights on weight days plus aches that I would normally have are slowly disappearing I really look forward to these workouts. There are three levels to fit your level of experience for Yoga Strong. I have tried all three Total levels. It is very challenging but the reward is so great. I look forward to continuing this series as well as his online yoga classes for a mere monthly total. Thanks for taking time and making Yoga great again for me.
Eric Cole –
Excellent work out video. Just the right length, nice variety of programs.
I finally got a chance to do yoga at home and this program was great! Will definitely be using this several times a week! Started with beginner, the instructor went at just the right pace, explaining as he went.
Love this video! I love that there are three levels and I have a choice of upper, lower, or total body. He moves at the perfect pace and the workout is fantastic. I no longer have to feel guilty not going to the gym.
W. F. Sijtsma –
The exercises themselves are good. Level two and three build on level one, basically you are getting more exercises and time per level. Not so good is the fact that you can’t turn off the music.
Ryan Prestimonico –
Excellent workout yoga. Three levels allows for healthy progression. Videos range from 20-40 minutes depending on the level and workout.
These videos are excellent – perfect for the level that I am at!
James Hubert –
Great program. I started with Yoga Boost in April 2019 after double hip replacement. It was perfect for a great beginning. I’m now doing Yoga Strong which offers the continuing challenges and progression. Dean is a straight shooter, no fancy music, scenery, humming or any of that. Just down to earth workouts with sound results. I’m waiting for the next series to come out so I can continue. P.S. I’m 65 years old and in pretty good shape now. Thanks Dean!
Karen Slavens –
It was a very good
john Kauer –
Great for men, use it every day
I have thoroughly enjoyed adding yoga to my routine with this series of workouts. I had some repetitive motion aches and pains from running and swimming and was able to remedy them with this series of videos. the slower movements and holding poses really strengthens those smaller muscles that we often ignore, the emphasis on stretching the entire body also contributed to my ability to overcome some of those persistent injuries. No nonsense, but guided, even down to the breath with constant reminders to focus on your core. I started at level 1 and now do level 3….and it never stops being challenging…you will tremble and sweat, but it is awesome.
More people would love Yoga if they started with these routines. The first one I tried was the one that comes free with Prime, which is Yoga Sweat. I was an instant fan and wanted more options so I bought the series. The instruction is great for those of us who have never taken a yoga class. He makes it easy and provides options for those of us who are not flexible.
Diva Mom –
Great video to keep your body limber for the game of golf.
I have been doing Beachbody 3 week yoga for 3 months, going slow. This is more advanced and starts with advanced moves in the first program. But it is well versed and a challenge.
I have done yoga off and on through the years. I do it mainly for the physical benefits. Most other videos I have used inevitably get heavier and heavier into the spiritual aspect. My other complaint is that form isn’t stressed as much by the instructors as it should be. In yoga, form is everything.
Dean keeps this simple. He skips the metaphysical crap and just does 25 minutes of butt-kicking yoga. He concentrates heavily on form. After all, if you don’t do the pose correctly you won’t get the full benefit.
And when I say butt-kicking, I mean exactly that. You will be sweating after 25 minutes. And you will definitely feel it.
So if you are a novice or even someone who has done yoga before, I highly recommend this video.
Our 3 1/2 year old loves listening to these stories of classical composers while riding in the car. They are very well made.
I did the first one, upper and lower body, wow excellent. It is very rare for me to give a 5 star review, this is real!!
Joe Cashin –
Love the pacing of the program. The length of the videos are tremendous. I use this in conjunction with my regular workouts and it has helped me feel stronger while learning out.
I’m warming you…, Don’t waste your money. Ya there are 3 program’s, but the same moves for each program. He just extends the time. I didn’t count the number of moves, but there aren’t that many. And the guy’s kind of a douche too.
Sunshine Girl –
Took a chance on this one based on friend’s recommendation, and am pleasantly surprised by how much I’m enjoying using this as a morning workout…a few days per week.
Since I typically do advanced yoga, advanced Pilates and really high-impact workouts, I started with and have only done the Level 3 workouts of this (my favorite being the Total Body one which is just under 40 minutes). The top selling point is the amount of time you hold each pose – there is no rushing through the poses so you actually feel as if you are challenging your body and getting a proper stretch in.
The setting is simple, the music (which is at the perfect volume) is quite pleasant and the instructor is thorough and has a nice voice. I would definitely buy another product featuring this instructor. Overall, this one is a keeper.
I really love Dean and how he teaches yoga. While doing each pose, he guides you along so you can tell whether you are doing it correctly or not. It is like he is sitting in your mind, understanding what you are into, and answering your questions right away as soon as they start to form in your head.
He always has modifications if you feel any pain or difficulties doing some postures, even encourages you if you are shaking or lose balance. I particularly like it when I hear him breathe along as if he were really there right in front of you, and this also makes you stay more focused.
His yoga is not difficult to do. I rather find it simple and very practical. Plus, it is a lot of fun and motivating. Dean made me want to do yoga everyday because his yoga makes me feel great and stronger. And because I feel so refreshed and stronger, it automatically motivates me to do more exercise at the gym.
I have suffered from pain in shoulder blades, shoulders, and neck for more than a year now. Acupuncture, physical therapy, mattress change never really helped but Dean’s yoga did! After my first try on Level 1, total body, I could feel that my whole body’s muscles worked out. My posture improved and the upper back pain is gone more than half of what I felt in the past. Before I realized it, I don’t use muscle pain cream anymore.
I am grateful I found Dean’s yoga and would recommend his programs to anyone.
Donald Post –
I can’t thank body by yoga enough. I started using their programs in August and changed my eating habits slowly changing my lifestyle so that it’s a permanent change. These workouts while challenging are so effective within the first few days I noticed my muscles returning that I haven’t seen in years. Having 2 kids and working full time doesn’t leave much time to go to the gym so being able to do it at home is great. Each workout is 30 minutes or less which is about all the time I can get in. My youngest even tries to copy me while I’m working out. This program has motivated me to change my lifestyle and I’ve been able to go from 170lbs in August to 147lbs in Feb and still going strong even with a few weeks here and there of slacking. I’ve never felt stronger and love that it’s not typical yoga because I’m not really cut out for the meditating and chanting side of yoga. I like the feeling of power I get after the workouts and Dean is an awesome instructor.
This Yoga workout works a lot more muscle than your normal yoga! Also it not super advance that even an average guy like me can do them!
K. Baker –
I really like Dean videos, each one gets better, little more intense. I haven’t made it to level three yet though. I would like to see more options for sale if I am unable to download the free videos, they are useless to me cause I cannot view them on my tv. I would request that the abs series and more difficult poses, like crow pose and other ones be incorporated into the levels. Again, I haven’t made it to three so sorry if it’s on there. I did see this on the upper body routine on YouTube. I hope to post a before and after once I am consistent in doing the programs.
PMR Doc –
I enjoy the workouts very much but the audio is sub par. The discs get quiet then loud repeatedly.
Jon Stalcup –
Just getting back into yoga after a two year hiatus. These tapes have really improved my form and helped me relax. It also doesn’t hurt that the Dean the instructor is smoking hot.
I’ve used many different yoga videos over the past 10 years from simple to complex. These have become my new favorites because I can really feel results. Other yoga programs are relaxing and offer good flexibility, but I often walked away wishing they would more effectively affect my overall health and strength. These programs do just that. I can feel a distinct difference in how I stand, sit, walk and my overall fitness level after doing these routines. Dean incorporates yoga poses into very real and practical exercises that help to increase effectiveness of the practice. Some very small modifications to traditional yoga poses are offered in these programs which have made all the difference to me. Each routine is about 20-30 minutes long, good for my busy schedule, while still having a positive impact. There are 3 programs in this set each with an increasing level of competency. I’m still working on the beginning program and am finding value. Can’t wait to comfortably work my way up the more advanced programs.
