5 Stars Wow- Welcome to a New You!
This DVD rocks! It is an excellent yoga workout- you can do the whole 70 minute session or choose a chapter for what feels fun for you on any given day. I DO have to agree with the people here who say it is not “per se” for beginners….I mean it IS excellent for beginners who have some yoga knowledge….but if you don’t it can get a bit confusing with the terminology, etc. Not to mention Shiva is beyond flexible so even though she still tries to not “bend too much” for the beginners she still is way more flexible and that can make a newbie feel bad. I for one LOVE LOVE LOVE this dvd and I think Shiva is a wonderful instructor, very relaxing and soothing….and the scenery where she is practicing is absolutely gorgeous! I highly recommend this DVD!!!
5 Stars Great Beginning-Advanced Yoga tape.
Very Nice workout for beginner to advanced Yoga. I’m a little more advanced but this is still a great tape to get streched-out and just Enjoy!
5 Stars Shiva Rea – Flow Yoga for Beginners
I love the DVD. It is easy to follow and the instruction is very good.
4 Stars A good beginner’s guide to yoga
I have enjoyed doing the flow yoga on this DVD. I think the trick is to not emulate everything Shiva Rea does, but to work at one’s own pace and gently learn the movements without over-doing them. I have had a lot of success with this routine and find it very helpful for the breathing techniques it develops also.
4 Stars not so simple to follow
Ok, I really need to get this out and try it again. I guess I just figured I could take it out and be able to flow with it the first time…which was not the case for me. I found it a little hard to follow. I attempted to do it once, got frustrated and on the shelf it went…(been doing on and off yoga practice for 20+ years)
The set is awesome, Shiva Rea is awesome, but for a true beginner I think this would be a little frustrating unless they were really motivated…so if you are a beginner, hang in there, be patient with yourself, and this DVD…the rewards are there for the taking.
