Great way to customize your yoga workouts
I love this DVD. I’d put my yoga skills somewhere between novice and intermediate. I have done a few yoga practices before, so was already familiar with most vinyasa flows and poses, but I was looking to expand my basic moves into an actual practice. This DVD did the trick. There are several different programs so you can customize your workout for something different every day. The customizing matrix is super easy to use, and tells you how long each segment is so you can fit a complete yoga session into a smaller time frame. My workouts are between 35-45 minutes, but you can certainly do 20 minute sessions if you want.
Fantastic and I use it daily
I love this DVD! I’ve been doing it almost daily since I got the product and already noticed a difference in my muscle tone. She is inspirational without being annoying. For any of the difficult poses, she begins with a an easier pose, and shows the progression. So you are able to do the majority of the DVD even if you can’t fold like a pretzel. She does move fairly quickly but after doing the DVD a couple times I was able to mostly keep up with her. There is one option in the matrix called Shanti that is mostly just stretching, which is great if I need a more relaxing flow. I love the yoga matrix to customize my workout if I don’t want to use a preset. I will be buying more of her DVDs.
love being able to customize my workout!
I have several yoga dvd’s, my favorites being Brian Kest, Alan Finger (Yoga Zone), Ali McGraw with Erich Schiffman. I also enjoy working out to the old “Inhale” yoga program with Steve Ross that ran on Oxygen Network. I have one other dvd by Shiva Rea, the Beginner’s Flow Yoga. I really liked that one, the moves were different, but made me feel great and I enjoyed the beautiful scenery in her dvd. I then tried her Fluid Power, Vinyasa Flow. I liked a lot of the moves, and the idea of being able to put many combinations together was what drew me, but she was a little, um, well….a little too “outside the box” for my taste, lots of free form dancing around when I really just want to do my poses. So, instead of purchasing this item I tried it from the library first. I loved it and came back to purchase it after I had worked through the preset routines and doing my own customized routines from the yoga matrix function. Again, beautifully filmed, great flow sequences with enough poses that were familiar and that I have gotten proficient at, and a few that I still work toward to make me feel challenged. None of the strange mystical dancing around, just good yoga. I would say this dvd is more intermediate than beginner.
great variety, visual and sounds are beautiful, lots of options!!
I liked a Shiva Rea yoga dvd awhile ago, but had found the practices were each too similar in movements and asanas (not enough variety). This one however I LOVE!! “matrix” options are much easier on this one also! I make a quick description for myself on each section so I can very easily set the best practice for that moment! Also, great variety!! Some very slow, easy, opening and calm. Some great hip and heart opening focuses for additional benefit, and some very challenging ones also! Gives me more to work towards so this dvd can be utilized to forward my practice for some time to come! Great job, thank you for making this Shiva Rea!
Very well done, especially the unique matrix format
I haven’t done all of the segments yet, but so far I’m really enjoying this DVD. I love the “matrix” format that allows the user to create a different practice to match mood, time available, etc. This, along with her Core Yoga DVD, are my first Shiva Rea videos, and at first I wasn’t sure about how I felt about them. They are completely different from Rodney Yee, Jenni Rawlings, and Travis Elliott, whose videos I have used for the past 7 years. Where they are quite structured and very clear-cut, Rea’s videos are more free-flowing and have a “do what feels good to your body” mood. Her direction and cues aren’t as concise as the other instructors either, so I find myself watching the screen more than I want to. I’m sure I’ll get past this once I’ve become accustomed to her style. Another big plus is the music–the music on both is delightful. Her voice is also incredibly soothing, even though I must admit at first I wasn’t a fan.
Great for a more abstract minded beginner
I had never done yoga before and I wanted to fix my posture, there are a lot of details Shiva does not cover but I was so motivated to start and found her method to be fun and loose enough for me to figure it out on my own. It took me about a year to do the poses correctly while watching other people’s yoga in addition to this dvd. I recommend Rodney Yee’s AM yoga, it is a descriptive and straight to the point teaching style I wish I had more of when I first started. It doesn’t bug me when my yoga teacher tells me to fly like seaweed, but I would also like more input about where my feet go or where I should be feeling a stretch. There were a couple times where Shiva does not follow the pattern of the flow or the right side may have more time than the left leaving me felling unevenly stretched. Overall, now that I know how to do yoga, they are all very fun sequences and I can substitute my own poses in if I feel uneven, but haha people like my sister strongly disagree, I showed her this dvd and she was not at all willing to jump through the clouds like a water dragon, she very much prefers the Rodney Yee way. It has been 2-3 years and I still use it as one of my primary yoga dvds.
just what i was looking for
I am an experienced exerciser but not experienced with yoga. My friend has been telling me to do yoga for about one year now. I got different dvd’s on yoga. First I got a beginners yoga dvd which I did not like because it was boring and needed props, towels,chairs ect. Second dvd was power yoga and it moved too fast and was not at all relaxing. Then another yoga dvd was a bust. Finally I hit upon Shiva Rea. I started with am energy and moved on to her core dvd’s. I liked the am for the matrix it provides but since it was am I found it too stimulating sometimes in the pm. The core ones are great but very core centered, hence the name. I wanted something that offered more options. This dvd has that. I love the different options, the matrix and the fact that each segment offers something different. To me Shiva Rae does the type of yoga I associate with yoga, flowing and beautiful. She has flexibility that I dream of having one day, (I hope). What I love about this yoga and why my friend wanted me to try yoga in the first place is it puts me in touch with my body. It makes me really stay in my body and connect with it, which my other exercises never did. I was doing those more for the fact that exercise is recommended for health purposes not for any other reason. Yoga especially these dvd’s seem to have a larger purpose. At least they do for me.
Exactly why Shiva is my favorite
I absolutely love this DVD. When I purchased it as it was first released I was in Physical Therapy for my knee and hip and really about the only flow I could complete was Shanti (which I love). After I graduated from therapy I found this was a wonderful DVD to grow with. The Fire sequence has become a favorite of mine and I alternate it with her agni namaskar flows from Surf Yoga Soul and Upper Body/Core. And Shanti is such a wonderful relaxing flow.
