I have several DVDs in the Element series (e.g., Element: Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility, ElementL Total Body Pilates With Mini Ball, and Element: Pilates Weight Loss) and enjoy all of them, so I thought I might like this DVD. This was my first experience with instructor Tamal Dodge.

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). Finishing postures include a lying stomach twist and an approximately 2 minutes in relaxation pose before concluding in a seated position.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection in a yoga DVD! January 18, 2013
By Maggie
Format:DVD
I took 2 levels of yoga at my university, and was looking to continue it on my own. Took me a while to settle on which DVD series to go with, but I checked out a preview of his videos and read reviews. I had a feeling that this was exactly what I was looking for.

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.

I use this video yoga practice very frequently. I especially enjoy Tamal's PM yoga, and credit the consistent practice of this series of "surrender poses" for releasing the tension in my back and shoulder muscles that I had for years. The poses are not very advanced, however, Tamal goes through them very slowly, allowing full muscle release, but also requiring the poses to be held for a longer duration. He offers modifications for most poses for beginners. (Other reviews detail the pose sequences). I also have videos from Elena Brower and Rodney Yee, both instructors I truly appreciate and enjoy. In comparison, Tamal is a very different instructor. I appreciate his different approach and the way he informs the users technique. I get something unique and different from this video. The end result of increased flexibility and more compliant muscles have benefited my yoga practice greatly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tamal Dodge videos best on market October 13, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After watching a lot of different yoga videos, it was great finding Tamal Dodge. I'm healthy except for an arthritis autoimmune disorder that causes pain and joint aches body-wide, and can make yoga poses difficult. The thing that's great about Tamal's videos is that he encourages you to only go as far as your body tells you to go, and to adapt if you need to. The Relaxation half of this video (great to do before bed) contains a couple of poses (pigeon, & threading the needle) that can be a little hard for people with pain problems, but he strongly encourages going softer, in general, and not pushing your body too hard. A book I found on yoga for arthritis suggests moving through difficult poses rather than holding them. That's been a great adaption to use with his more challenging poses (although most of his poses are not difficult at all). I highly recommend all of his yoga videos. He just has a way of encouraging and teaching that is extremely accessible and positive. I hope he creates many more, including ones geared toward people with arthritis or other illnesses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I needed - thank you Tamal September 5, 2012
Format:DVD
Tamal Dodge is so widely regarded and loved as both a Yoga instructor and teacher that his classes in Southern California as well as his teacher training workshops and retreats he holds worldwide are always sold out. This DVD is the perfect anecdote for both re gaining your peace and focus and finding more energy and vitality. It will open up the amazing and healthy world of yoga for anyone either beginning or looking for the perfect at home class. Cheers!
