Product Description

Yoga is a wonderful way to reduce stress, increase strength, tone muscle, cultivate flexibility, and improve overall health. Filmed on a lush, tranquil location overlooking the Pacific Ocean, these two 30-minute programs offer great variety for your practice. The Hatha session will relieve stress, increase flexibility and recharge circulation as it guides you step-by-step through a breakdown of static poses using the strap to aid in stretching. The Flow session will build strength and stamina by taking postures from Ashtanga yoga and sequencing them into a simple, natural flow that aids in weight loss, tones muscle, improves balance and calms mental focus. These two diverse programs may be practiced individually but are also perfect to complement each other in the same day. Enjoy both sessions as they create breath awareness and foster clarity between your mind, body and spirit to help you realize your optimal potential.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have yoga DVD September 24, 2011
If you are new to yoga and are looking for an at-home DVD, then you will love "Element Hatha & Flow, Yoga for Beginners" with yogi Tamal Dodge. The routines Tamal uses are geared for beginners for sure, but could be used as a nice, contemplative alternative for more seasoned yoga students as well. Tamal's calm demeanor and conscious approach enhance the flow of asanas that are both easy to grasp and also challenge you to listen to your body to find your own place to deepen each pose. As a yoga beginner, I was sometimes confused by the names of poses and found certain DVDs hard to follow. Not so with Tamal's instruction. Every movement and pose is very clear and easy to follow. This DVD is really well done. I highly recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tamal's Yoga is great for all ages...Even 50+ September 28, 2011
Verified Purchase
Aloha & Namaste! I just received my kit today and absolutely love Tamal's approach for beginners such as myself. I am "50+" in age and I find Tamal's instruction so easy, peaceful and inspiring! It is perfect for any age and makes great birthday or holiday gifts for loved ones. The yoga strap is a nice touch and gift to his viewers. I especially love how he explains in detail the importance of breathing and he explains each step in detail. Tamal's voice and gentleness projects to the audience his love for this practice. Thanks to Tamal, I can now learn in the comfort of my home with ease, simplicity and confidence and I know that through daily practice, Tamal's yoga will be added to my lifestyle of 'spiritual' practice. I love the music and the beautiful landscape. The colors are inviting! The photography is exquisite and adds a calm and serene effect with the different panning of scenes. I hope that Tamal continues to create a series of DVD instructions so that beginners can progress and grow along with Tamal. Thank you so much Tamal for this beautiful project. Mahalo!Element Hatha & Flow Yoga For Beginners With Yoga Strap Kit

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect January 6, 2013
Verified Purchase
I am an older uncoordinated absolute beginner. The instructor explains and demonstrates the moves and positions well in a genuinely calm and well modulated voice. He also explains well the physical effects and benefits of each pose in real time. At the conclusion he explains the spiritual benefits through a guided meditation. These explanations are clear and down to earth. The setting is lovely and there is compatible background music. There is also an undertone of breathing that I find helpful to sync my own breathing with the moves. I have another Yoga DVD and I far prefer this one. The use of the strap intensifies the benefit of the moves.
There are two programs - a Hatha and Flow. I have been following the Hatha program for four months now 2-3 times a week. Even though it has challenged my muscles and increased my flexibility, I have experienced no soreness or strain whatsoever. At this point, the Flow program is beyond me. It goes too fast for the likes of me. I try it after the Hatha program about once a week and each time get a little further along.
I find this DVD well tempered and considered. The only reason for 4, rather than a 5 rating, is than one cannot bypass Tamal Dodge's introductory remarks to access the programs (The intro was helpful for the first few viewings, but now is no longer needed.) The other reason is the degree of difficulty and the fast pace of the Flow program. It seemed a little intense for a beginner, but I acknowledge the problem could be me. I just upgraded to 5 as I figured out how to bypass the remarks. Elementary, really.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE GROUND UP September 16, 2011
This DVD is like water to my soul. There are lots of DVDs out there but not many that start at the ground and work their way up. It makes a beginner at yoga feel like they can conquer this already vastly growing sport and spiritual practice. The DVD gives anyone all the tools needed to not only start their own individualized yoga journey but to have the confidents to learn new elements of yoga. It is a great DVD with amazing fundamentals that even advance practitioners could benefit from. HIGH RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you need to get into yoga September 15, 2011
By Chris N
This DVD is extremely well thought out! It's perfect for beginners who want to try yoga for the first time and advanced students who are looking for a great workout.

Tamal is a wonderful teacher and learning yoga from him is something very special. This instructional video can help you bring a mindful & meditative quality to your yoga practice. The price is great and the DVD comes with a strap!

5.0 out of 5 stars kicks butt (literally) September 12, 2011
By Sesa108
I'm a yoga instructor and will definitely be recommending this to students and fellow instructors! Because this is definitely, hands down, one of the best Yoga DVD's I've ever taken. The instruction is super clear and easy to follow, you could literally do it with your eyes closed. It's perfect for beginners, mid levels, and advanced. No matter what level you are, the 30 minute sequences put most hour-hour and a half work outs to shame! So whether you're looking to deepen your practice or get a good work out in, this will give you the chance to do both, guaranteed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Yoga DVD Ever November 14, 2011
I love this DVD. Tamal Dodge is a remarkable yoga teacher. The instructions are clear and the class is easy to follow. I have been in Tamal's classes, which are great, and the DVD is almost as good as being in his class. The photography is beautiful. If you cannot go to Tamal's classes, this DVD is the next best thing. I highly recommend it.
