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.

I have a few of her dvds already and they are all good for different reasons. She tends to have a section on the dvd called yoga matrix, where can you choose sequences yourself instead of following a preset one - which they also have on the dvds. Which is nice to have so you are not going on automatic so to speak. I will have to check out this one. She has has ones for expecting women and after having the baby(ies) too.

Yoga is actually great for expectant moms. My friend Elyse has been doing yoga and teaching for 8 years. She continued to teach and practice through her first pregnancy and then took her little girl to yoga for kids. It's amazing what it does for her figure and her patience! Another good tip for pregnant moms and babies is amber teething. It's definitely destressing and the only natural rememdy for relieving teething pain. Check it out...love your feedback as this was a whole new concept to me but I'm into everyting holistic these days!
