DVD Review: Shiva Rea — Flow Yoga for Beginners


If you've always wanted to experiment with Flow Yoga, you're going to love Shiva Rea's DVD, Flow Yoga for Beginners ($15). This DVD is all about creative, fluid movements, and it's full of inspired, rhythmic music with heavy beats and gorgeous scenery in the background.

I love that Shiva Rea begins this practice in a seated position, to give you a chance to slow down your body and mind, so you can prepare yourself for complete awareness. She starts with series of slow movements, called Foundation Flow, to warm up your body and get you connected to your breath, which is so important for your focused yoga practice.

The other sections include Backbend Flow, Flexibility Flow, Standing Pose Flow, and finally Savasana. Each section is about 10 to 20 minutes long, so you can do the entire 70 minutes at once or choose the ones you have time for. The sequence of poses are very slow and gentle, so you'll learn about proper alignment in each pose, which is so important for beginners. I really enjoyed this DVD and felt extremely relaxed and calm afterward. If you are ready to try and flow, you can buy it here.
