An Acacia production.
"The reigning queen of yoga" American Fitness
Shiva Rea is the Premier Yoga Goddess.If you like Flow and Circular Motions, this DVD is it!
I really love this DVD. Shiva is the best. I love the beach and the ocean. This workout is tough and works some muscles not generally reached in my yoga practice. I love the music and the scenery. Parts are very challenging and others are supremely relaxing. Felt so energized after doing this practice.
I was keen to open this DVD and played with it for a week but overall think that it has limited appeal to hardcore Shiva fans and/or surfers.Highlights: the Agni Namaskar which has excellent instructions and Mandala Namaskar, it's not what I originally learned from Shiva years ago but is fantastic and engaging and I think everyone should try it. Bummers: Only one opening movement meditation;
This is a great DVD for someone who is used to more traditional yoga practices. It provides a less 'formal' workout, in a fun and invorating way, with all the benefits of yoga. It is easy to customize to the length and intensity of the workout you would like. There is one section with very advanced arm balance poses, but it is possible to skip that section completely or wait until you are read
Yoga is my night time treat for myself, the way I relax and unwind. I love Shiva Rea and this is one of my favorite in my collection.
You can design the workout using the matrix. The workout is great; it's out of the ordinary. My muscles, body, mind feel relaxed - the rhythmic and circular strength building movements really work!
This dvd provides a very difficult workout but is taught in a way that I believe honors the heart of yoga. The yoga matrix allows me to do what I can then skip to the next section if I am not ready to keep up with Shiva.
I'm not an athelete, but I do like to run and do yoga. I didn't realize that some of the moves are for more advanced users. I did find it fun. I like the way she substitutes the mat for a surfboard. I did recommend this to a friend and co-worker.
I have never surfed, so the whole surfer thing goes right over my head, but I am enjoying this DVD anyway! I really like the matrix format. I really like that the video can be split up. Most of the segments are extremely challenging for me anyway! The spoken instructions are easy to follow.
Wonderful teacher, love this! I love that you can mix and match what you want. I use this 3 times per week. Shiva is just amazing.
