    Buy this for the equipment, not the workouts The value of purchasing the kit over purchasing individual pieces of equipment was about $2 when I made the purchase, and on top of that there is a bonus DVD included in the kit with 2 workouts.The equipment: 5 stars. For my level of use (fairly average — nothing too rigorous), this equipment is more than satisfactory. I haven’t experienced any problems with it. The mat has box-shaped graphics that look nice but also provide a point of reference for your feet and hands when getting into the yoga positions. I find them helpful and discrete. I don’t use the hand block or the strap much, but in my experience, they are sturdy and well made.The workouts: 3 stars. I would say that there is really only one workout on the DVD. The first workout is more like a 12-minute series of stretches. It is nice as a warmup or cooldown, but it is not what I would consider a workout. The second workout is more intense, and it certainly qualifies as a workout for beginners. I purchased this kit as a way to start working back into yoga. I’m no expert by any means, but I have in the past had an intermediate skill level. The second workout definitely feels to me like it straddles the beginner/intermediate level, but there is really nothing advanced about it. It’s good for working into yoga, but it will not interest the more advanced user. And I was disappointed that I really only got one real workout instead of the advertised two.Bottom line: 4 stars. If you’re just starting yoga and don’t have any equipment, this is a good kit to get you started. It really includes everything you might need as a beginner, and it will save you a few dollars to purchase everything together. If you already have some of the equipment, it may be worth your while to buy individual pieces you want/need and look for a different workout DVD.

    WONDERFUL KIT!!! This Living Arts Yoga Kit is great! You get everything you need to get started at a great price! If you bought all of the pieces seperately it would cost much more. The mat is very high quality, as are the yoga strap and blocks. You will get years of use from this set. The video will go through the use of props with you and help you understand their uses better. We reccomend this to everyone!
