Like all of the Element offerings, this DVD contains two practices, both of which are set in a pretty outdoor garden setting. Dodge is featured alone, teaching via voiceover, and the only prop needed is a yoga mat. I have provided an overview of each practice below.
YOGA FOR ENERGY (32 minutes)
Dodge begins this practice standing, moving into a standing backbend. He then performs half sun salutes. Coming into downward dog, he moves through plank, dolphin, and forearm plank. This is followed by a series which includes down dog to three-legged down dog, crescent pose, twisted side angle, warrior 2, reverse warrior 2/reverse triangle, side angle, and repeat reverse warrior 2. Dodge holds each posture for several breaths, which is quite challenging; he then repeats the entire series on the second side. Sitting on the heels, he performs breath of fire (two rounds) and belly breathing. This is followed by a series of seated poses, including full seated forward bend, seated leg stretch, reverse plank, forward bend in butterfly, and crab (aka table).Read more ›
Tamal is extremely clear in his instructions, and he lets you know what each pose helps do for your body and mind. The setting is beautiful and calm-- Hawaii. The background music is light and peaceful, and he apparently helped create the music, which I think is pretty cool. Overall, he just has a very calming demeanor, which is a huge part of what makes his series so ideal. When I was looking for a yoga series, the last thing I wanted was a hyper, annoying instructor-- and he's cool as a cucumber.
I personally gravitate more toward the "Relax" video, but both are excellent. The "Energy" portion is a bit of a challenge for me, but not in a bad way. The "Relax" portion is just that-- extremely relaxing. It also includes a lot of gentle but effective flexibility poses. I always feel awesome after finishing that. I would recommend this to anyone who's even remotely interested or curious about yoga.
