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.
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.
Helping me recover from a yoga injury

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.

I like this video on days when I don’t feel overly energetic, or just when i want a longer, slower workout. Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s not a great workout, though. I always feel super when I’ve finished, both relaxed and energized. It’s easy enough for beginners, but good for more experienced practitioners as well.

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.
An excellent beginners guide to Vinyasa Flow
5 helpful votes
I think it is important to note that this is a beginners guide to Vinyasa Flow Yoga, not your average beginners guide to yoga. I think that is the misconception here when reviewers note that this is not for beginners, it actually is. Shiva Rea is a world famous Vinyasa Flow or Flow Yoga instructor, she is one if not the best. Vinyasa Flow basically means “one breath, one movement.” It is one of the many different types of yoga. I receommend before purchasing any yoga DVD, know what type of yoga you are interested in, educate yourself so you won’t be disappointed or overwhelmed. Vinyasa Flow is not your basic yoga stretching. It is creative movement and yes, you are constantly moving it seems, it is considered part of the Astanga family. If that is what you are interested in, then this is the DVD for you, look no more. As stated above Shiva is one of the best, she is very precise in her teaching, after you finish this DVD, you will feel relaxed and renewed and your prana will be flowing.
A beautiful exercise DVD

I read the other reviews that said they didn’t like this video because it was more like a movie than an instructional video. Personally, I LOVED the high production values and the beautiful scenery. If I’m going to have to sit and stare at something for an hour, I’d at least like to to look beautiful. This is.
Good Intro to Flow Yoga

I figured this would be a good DVD to start with before I immersed myself into Yoga Shakti. I’m glad I did! I think this is not only a nice introduction to Flow Yoga, but to the instructor herself. I had heard many great reviews about Shiva Rea so I couldn’t wait to get my first DVD from her.
