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, belt or towel 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.

I have many yoga dvds. For almost two years I have been exploring different types of yoga disciplines, such as Iyengar and Anusara. I previously tried two other Hatha yoga dvds, but they lacked modifications and moved too quickly. About one month ago, I purchased the Hatha & Flow YOGA for beginners by Tamal Dodge. I love this yoga practice! With the Hatha flow, Tamal uses a strap with many of the poses and guides you how to approach each pose at your own pace and ability level. The practice is challenging and I always finish feeling very relaxed. Tamal also has a soothing, calm voice and gives clear instruction so that I am able to focus on the pose and not on the screen. He also describes the benefits of each pose as you are doing it. I also like the Flow practice. Tamal doesn't go too quickly, but creates a repetitive flow. It is a great cardio workout. I have already experience results and challenge myself to go farther into each pose each time I practice. This is by far the best yoga instructional DVD that I have. His positive words and guided meditation always leaves me feeling more at peace.

Husband, teenage daughter and myself started practicing yoga at a studio. We found that we can accommodate all our schedules by doing it at home with dvd guidance. I have purchased a STACK of yoga dvds and Tamal Dodge's dvd is the only one we collectively enjoy. His voice is very relaxing and it brings your focus completely to the mat. There is the slight sound of his breathing that reminds you to breathe. Very important point - He uses descriptive terms of poses along with the Sanskrit name. Some dvds and even the studio we went to only use the Sanskrit terms...not very helpful for beginners. I found after numerous times practicing with his dvd that the Sanskrit terms came easily to me. The dvd has two sections. The first section is a great stretching routine that uses a strap. Big difference using a strap! The second section is more of a vinyasa routine -transitions between poses are smooth.It is a very well thought out dvd - scenery is nice, music is perfectly balanced with the flow. Love this dvd!!

I notice now that most of the great reviews on this video are from people who are already into yoga. I am very flexible and rather strong, but the pace and expectations here are not at a true beginner level...maybe an experienced beginner. After 15 minutes of the flow, I just gave up. The poses weren't hard, but there wasn't even time to get yourself into position and check if you were doing it right before he was on to the next.

Also, so much leaning on the hands so early on, my palms are still red and sore. He says to go at your own pace, but if you slow down to check your posture, you have just missed the next pose.

It's a shame...I really wanted to like this video, and the instructor is calm and pleasant. I want to be his friend. But he's focused on his own workout, not helping me figure out mine. I bet he's the best instructor in person, but this video is not an introduction to yoga.

My main issue with this DVD is that the difficulty level of the two workouts is really quite extreme and some people might not be prepared for that.

The Hatha session is wonderful, soothing, and relaxing. It will definitely relax you at the end of a long day and help work on flexibility. I encourage everyone, beginners and advanced yogis alike, to use the strap as the instructor demonstrates. I didn't because I never use straps or blocks in my yoga practice but one day for the hell of it I did and it really adds a lot to this session. You feel and stretch your muscles in new ways.

The flow session is quite a power packed little workout that those new to yoga, overweight, or new to fitness in general will find very challenging. It is miles away from the ease of the Hatha session. There are some great strength building sequences, very good core and balance focus, and you will get a decent full body workout in 30 minutes. I would hesitate to call this a beginner workout though. You will need a beginning understanding of basic yoga poses and knowledge of proper form.

If you approach the flow session by going easy on yourself, taking breaks when you need to, and focusing on doing the best you can at that moment I think you may like this video and will be encouraged by your progress the more you do it. Use the Hatha session as your reward for putting in a good effort.

The instructor is encouraging and manages to strike a good balance between being motivating and babbling on and on to the point of distraction. His focus and guidance on breath, the essence of Yoga, is excellent.

For those brand spankin new to Yoga I recommend the beginner Yoga Zone dvds.

I have had different Yoga tapes, things I like about this one:
1. I have very tight hamstrigs and like yoga that is more slow and controlled. This does slow deep stretches. To me this is very effective in loosening tightness. I think it is more beneficial than having a tape that you can't do the move and you feel like you are wasting time waitng for it to move to something you can do. It also makes it safer. I feel the muscles sore the next day in my back and I notice the discomfort in hip lessening significantly. I think people are not always aware of how much tight hamstrings cause misalignment and rotate hips externally.
