The BEST yoga DVD out there

I usually don’t bother leaving reviews but this DVD really warranted it. I’ve never been a fan of Shiva Rea’s DVDs because thye seemed more like a movie to me rather than an instructional practice. This DVD contains 7 main workouts that when done on their own give you a great workout. She also pairs them into 7 practices between 40 and 60 minutes. This really is the total package. I personally cannot do an hour of yoga daily or every other day. I am usually pressed for time and after a while my body starts to break down. Like it says on the package that it’s better to do a little bit of yoga daily than a full routine every now and again. Don’t lt the short time of the workouts fool you, they really ARE effective. I do a different one each day, every day and my body is reallly toning, getting muscular, and this really gives me the peace and grounding that yoga is known to induce. I am statign to face the day with a serene gaze like Shiva dones in this workout, and all of her DVDs.
Highly recommended…using the DVD for 4 years now

I am using this for 4 years now for about 3-5 days a week. I can tell my core body has strengthened since. I recommended this to my sister and my mom too. Very well organized moves and through explanations. I love it and recommend it to everyone.
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.

This is my favorite yoga video. The seven, 20-minute programs are easy to squeeze into a busy day. If you have more time, you can choose to do one of the five preset combinations. Four are about 40 minutes each and one is 50 minutes. These longer programs include opening meditations, a short core workout or forward bend sequence, and shavasana.
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.
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 beginners!

This was the first Yoga video I’ve ever purchased, I’ve never taken any other Yoga classes, and I find this to be a great introduction to Shiva Rea Yoga. I was looking for something relaxing and not too strenuous, to help build some strength and flexibility and give me more energy, and this video has done exactly that. I’ve been doing it 5 days a week, for several months now and it has helped to improve my flexibility and balance and I feel stronger than before, even though I’ve always worked out. I used to use weights and machines but now I know that you can get a much better workout just by using your own body. The Earth and Water practices are much more calm and relaxing, while the Fire and Air practices are more challenging and energizing. I like how they are broken down into 20 minute routines that you can mix and match depending on your own personal preference. The 7 minute ab workout is also a great alternative to doing regular sit-ups or crunches and is very effective. I also find the music very invigorating and I think it fits well with the routines. The instructor clearly demonstrates and explains the different positions and I find it very easy to follow. I would highly recommend this video for anyone just starting Yoga!
Great DVD, but certainly not for beginners with no knowledge of yoga
I have played off and on with yoga for over a decade. I am a fitness instructor who had been teaching way too many classes of late and recently decided I needed to get back into yoga. My personal practice has always been at home with videos/DVDs. I find I do best with DVDs that offer short routines – for me, doing yoga for 15-20 minutes a day seems to make a bigger impact on my body than hour routines here or there. I was having trouble finding anything short that wasn’t also a beginner routine. As I said, I have dabbled for years, so I do not consider myself a beginner yogi. However, I will be the first to admit that I am extremely tight from teaching fitness classes and ignoring yoga (you have to stretch people!) and I am by no means an expert. I would consider myself a beginner intermediate. I am very familiar with basic asanas, but I am not flexible or strong enough to get into a lot of the intermediate or advanced poses. All that said, I thought this DVD would be a great solution and I knew Shiva Rea was highly respected.
Not for beginners, but a great DVD

I like this DVD. I have only tried two of the 20-minute workouts so far, but they are just right for me. I really like the “Yoga Matrix,” which allows you to mix and match different 20 minute workouts, along with savasana, meditation, and a couple of other 6 minute options that I have not tried yet (one is “core” work). I have practiced using the “Earth” workout (20 minute vinyassa), which was quite a challenge for me at first because she sometimes fails to give verbal cues as to what is going on on the screen, not to mention that it is somewhat fast paced for an “experienced” beginner like myself. I call myself an experienced beginner because I have been practicing yoga off and on for 15+ years, but because of my age, my bodily limitations, and my lack of consistent practice, I have never advanced beyond doing beginner work. At first, I found myself “resting” in down dog for about half of the workout, but after about 6 weeks, I can pretty much keep up with it. Don’t let the 20-minute length fool you. I also purchased a DVD by Zyrka Landwijt (Yoga: Gentle Vinyasa Flow) at the same time, which I have been alternating with Shiva Rea’s Daily Energy. Zyrka’s 38-minute workout is much easier for me to complete at the end of a long workday than the 20-minute “Earth” workout, mainly because Zyrka’s DVD proceeds at a slower pace, which is easier to keep up with and which is not as exhausting. I highly recommend it for beginners.
