Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Stress relief and flexibility programs are natural compliments in yoga. When you release mental pressure, you simultaneously relieve tightness in your muscles and joints. Similarly, when you focus on reducing stiffness in the body, you automatically release tension held in the mind. These two rejuvenating yoga programs, filmed in a tranquil garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean, can help undo the physical and mental effects of tension. The Stress Relief sequence uses the breath, longer holds, and forward bends to encourage the body's relaxation response. This calming sequence will dissolve anxiety, improve quality of sleep, reveal clarity of thought, and activate the anti-aging benefits that restorative yoga provides. The Flexibility sequence uses simple but effective flowing vinyasas to enhance agility, alleviate pain, cultivate a greater free range of movement, and reduce risk of future injury.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beneficial Yoga Practice December 7, 2010
Format:DVD
I love all the Element DVDs. I either own or regularly check all of them out from the library. I own Ashley Turner's previous yoga video Element: Yoga for Weight Loss. One of my fitness goals is to improve my flexibility, so I was excited to discover Element was releasing this video with her as an instructor. I find her to be a very supportive instructor and her Yoga for Weight Loss DVD to be beneficial. You can select play yoga for stress relief (about 36 min), play yoga for flexibility (32 Min), or play complete program. (66 Min),

Yoga for Stress Relief

The Stress Relief sequence uses breath, longer holds, and forward bends to "encourage the body's relaxation response." You start with several minutes of breathing, centering, and relaxing neck. Stretch arms overhead and lean to one side for a few breaths, and then switch to the other side for a few breaths. Reach arms overhead and slowly twist to one side and hold a few breaths. Switch to other side. Then, move on to a series of seated twists. Next, while remaining seated, bring your knees close to chest and slowly alternate between rounding and flexing your back. Re-center for a few breaths. Allow both knees to fall to side and flex feet. You do a series of twists with legs in that position on one side. Re-center for a few breaths. Do same series on opposite side. Re-center for a few breaths. Stretch one leg straight out and bend other knee so that the foot is flush against straight leg. Flex foot and do forward bend. Change position of bent knee so that foot is on ground. Wrap arm around bent knee. Twist far as you are comfortable and bring that arm as far as you can across the knee. Sit with both legs crossed. Fold forward for a few minutes.

Format:DVD
Yoga instructor Ashley Turner hosts Element: Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility, an inexpensive DVD offering two yoga programs to improve one's physical and mental health. The "Stress Relief" program emphasizes controlling one's breath, longer holds, and forward bends in order to heighten mental acuity and foster higher quality sleep. The "Flexibility" program lives up to its title with vinyasa techniques have enhanced agility, dampened pain, and promoted greater freedom of movement for countless generations. An excellent, low-impact workout for viewers of all ages and backgrounds, Element: Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility is an excellent addition to any fitness DVD library. 73 min.

I love, love, love this DVD!!! I suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder, depression, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder....you get the idea....I'm a nervous wreck! LOL.. I find relaxing incredibly difficult even with therapy and pharmaceutical help. This DVD really succeeds in helping me relax. It is a Godsend to me....especially the section on stress relief...the flexibility section is awesome too! I HIGHLY recommend this product!!!

NOTE: I received a free copy of this DVD to review for Metapsychology Online Reviews; you can read a more detailed copy of my review on that site.

This is the first DVD I have tried from the Element series. It features Ashley Turner, who also appeared in Element: Yoga for Weight Loss. Here Turner offers two yoga routines which can be used either together or separately to enhance relaxation, stimulate circulation, and increase agility. Turner teaches via voiceover and offers mirrored cuing, sometimes using only Sanskrit names for the postures, sometimes adding in the English translations as well. Other than her yoga mat, Turner does not utilize any props, although she occasionally makes suggestions for how props (e.g., blocks) could be used to modify some of the postures.

The Main Menu of this DVD offers the following options:

*Play Yoga for Stress Relief
*Play Yoga for Flexibility
*Play Complete Program

I have broken down each of the practices in greater detail below.

YOGA FOR STRESS RELIEF

This is the longer of the two practices at just under 36 minutes; virtually the entire routine is performed seated on the floor. Turner begins with instruction on ujjayi breathing, taking time to cultivate this breath. After a few head rolls, she performs a single "ohm" and suggests setting an intention (sankalpa) for the practice. This is followed by a seated side bend, simple seated twist, and a unique seated twist with an emphasis on stretching the upper back/shoulders.

5.0 out of 5 stars yoga for stress relief.. January 21, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
i love element dvds but the Stress relief section workout became a favorite in the short half hour i did it. its a simple accesable to all fitness types but enjoyable workout to help us deal with the effects of outside stress on our bodies AND spirit.. i havent done the other, i just got it yesterday.. but Stress relif truly helped me untense head to toe the muscles in my neck and shoulders that daily take a beating, and i truly didnt realize how much tense breath can affect your body! it teaches you to take a few minutes to unwind and breathe slower, and on my "day off" i want to do it just because it left me feeling refreshed and calm. i couldnt recommend this segment more for anybody who thinks they are stressed!

I enjoy yoga that is relaxing and meditative and focuses more on stretching and breathing than "working out' so to speak. So that's why I purchased this. Read more
