Don’t Be Afraid To Try It!

I love Shiva Rea and I love the dvd. I’ve watched her shows on tv, so I am familiar with her level of expertise. I would recommend that you watch her on tv first. I knew from tv that if this was titled ‘beginner’, it would be a little more challenging than others. If you can’t find her on tv, buy the dvd and watch it a few times before you try it.

I wish I had paid less attention to reviews that said it wasn’t for beginners!

I am not a big yoga fan. In fact, most yoga DVDs bore me. But something about Shiva in the video clips always intrigued me. She is really an awesome instructor. I wish I had paid less attention to the reviewers that said this DVD was not for beginners, as I wasted time and money on some really boring beginner DVDs.

Great for beginning or returning to a practice

I used to go to yoga classes 2-3 x’s/week but then life happened and my practice was the first to go. Now that things are settling down again, I’m ready to get back on this horse, but unfortunately I’ve lost some of the strength and flexibility tat comes with regular practice. So, while I am attending classes locally, they don’t always fit with my schedule and as a result I decided to order some new yoga DVDs to round things out.

I wanted to do yoga at home instead of in a class as I recovered from a yoga related injury. I reinjured an old running injury. I ordered this DVD and it came with an Amazon Instant Video which I promptly downloaded to my iPad.

A wonderful Yoga video for any level

Just received my order! 🙂 This afternoon I had my 1st 70min workout with this DVD. I have to say that this is really great! I’ve done yoga on and off for about 1yr with YogaZone’s DVD “Gentle Yoga” – it includes two basic, well explained workouts that really prepared me for Shiva Rea. Compared to “Gentle Yoga”, this DVD’s workouts actually increased my heart rate for quite a bit! Though I’m not very athletic, I know most of the poses already, so I was able to follow all her instructions. But I agree with some of the reviews here – there are poses that require a bit of familiarity and endurance, so they may be a bit too advanced for absolute beginners.

Fantastic

I was overwhelmed as a beginner so I can understand the complaints some other reviewers have with this DVD. However I would like to add that vinyasa, or flow yoga, is a quite challenging form of yoga, not usually recommended for beginners. I think that Shiva Rea does very well in introducing this form of yoga to those unfamiliar with it. I really love the DVD, music and presentation, so I went back to it after using the Giam beginner yoga DVDs for a few weeks. At that point it was not completely unreasonable to attempt the flows in this program- especially with all the variations she introduces to make it less physically challenging. I have favorite moments in the program and find it very easy to navigate to them because the DVD is broken down into 5 sections. I have Rhumatoid Arthritis and yoga practice has helped me with my pain, but some days are better than others, on bad days I just do one flow. I like that this DVD gives you the option to do that. I would recommend this to a beginner as long as you try this as maybe your second DVD, and the real “beginner” ones get old fast.

Good for beginners

I like this DVD. Before doing this workout, I had only a small amount of yoga experience and I found this DVD to be very helpful. I would definitely say that it is for beginners. Many of the poses that she does are modified to accommodate the beginner and are meant to open up the back and hips and to stretch out tight muscles and limbs. I have been doing it for a few weeks and am now ready for something more challenging. Only two of the four segments raise my heart rate, but just a little at that. But I have felt my body slowly becoming more and more stretched out and stronger. Also, she is very supportive of starting out slow with small movements and very slowly moving towards flexibility. I felt like it was a really good program to start with, because again, many of the exercises are meant to simply get the body opened up and stretched out so that you can do more advanced poses later. Overall, a good introduction to yoga for a beginner. If you are looking to simply become more flexible in order to move on to something more challenging later, I suggest starting with this DVD.
