5 out of 5 stars Like a new yoga class everyday February 11, 2009

This is a great DVD. With the matrix you can personalize your routine. One day do hip openers and the next time you work out stretch and flow in another area of your body. COncentrate on all areas and do it in the time you have – you can make your workout 20 minutes or over an hour – whatever you want. This is not Top 40 Yoga – this is the real deal. Shiva Rea knows what she is doing and this is about peace within yourself and working your body. Beautiful flowing postures and the filming is gorgeous. Don’t wait – immerse yourself in the flow.

This is in my opinion, the best yoga dvd I have ever purchased. It lush with gorgeous scenery, and the music is totally cool. I spend 5-6 days a week dancing, so I use this every Sunday to balance out my training. Shiva Rea is a great instructor, although I must say some of the things are a bit challenging for beginners, but I just fast forward those parts. The other night I put on the lunar flow sequence, and felt so calm and grounded afterwards. I highly reccomend the “lunar flow” for those with insomnia or anxiety issues, both of which I have. Its funny, but I actually prefer this dvd to taking classes. I never thought I would be able to find a dvd better than a yoga class.

Anyone interested in taking their yoga practice to the next level needs to have this video. After years of yoga practice, I was in need of a challenge and a way to expand my practice. Shiva Rea offers this challenge to those looking to go beyond the standard yoga poses. The best I have found so far!

I LOVE this DVD. My husband loves it too. I take classes in a studio and this dvd is an amazing supplement to that. It could easily stand on it s own even of you don’t take classes in a studio. The instruction is great, each pose is given so that people of all levels can do it. I hope she has other ones as great as this one!!

Great vid. I like the matrix selection in creating your own workout. I also like Shiva’s soothing personality and voice. This workout creeps up on you though…it starts out soothing then you get really hot, I’ve even felt it the day after.
