There is a lot of great information about yoga in this game but the routines don't talk to you except for criticism or compliments which I don't believe have anything to do with out you are actually doing. The yogi doesn't tell you they are changing poses or vocally walk you through the pose so you have to wiggle around and strain to see what is going on instead of focusing on the pose. I've actually gotten better yoga work outs from the fit game.

This has been what I am looking for. It is worth the rental price, it is not worth the retail price though, I would pay in the 20.00 range.
I wanted Routines to follow. I didn't have to listen to a lot of feedback and explanations. I just enjoy following along and doing my routine.
What this game had to offer were routines for specific problems. If you had a headache you could choose the headache routine and it walks you through the different poses to help.
It also had Arthritis, stomach, obesity, back, etc... each routine had from 3-7 different poses and they were continuous. Very little talk, no walking you though. If you didn't know how to do a specific pose you could go to the training and have it explained and practice.
You could use this with a remote, balance board or you could turn both of those off and just follow along on your yoga mat. Which is how I preferred doing my routines.

This game was OK. If i didn't play the wii fit version of Yoga first i might have liked it better, but as stated in previous reviews the wii fit Yoga is a lot better. This version does not give you step by step of what they are doing so you have to look at the screen every couple seconds to see if they changed positions, otherwise you will not know. I rented it anyway because i figured I'm paying each month to try whatever game i want and can send it back that day if i don't want it and have the rest of my life to try all the other games out there.
