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.

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.

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!!!

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.

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.

I really like this video and Ashley is great! I am a college student about to graduate my undergrad-and begin grad school for my masters. I spend most of my time sitting, reading, studying, and typing on my computer and this has made my legs, back, shoulders, and especially my neck extremely tense. It has become very painful and I have a hard time trying to relax and loosen those tight/sore muscles. It's become so bad that I was frustrated because I didn't even know where to start....but this DVD has been a great way for me to get some much needed stress relief and it is helping me work on my flexibility. Other yoga DVDs either move too quickly for me where I get frustrated, or they move too slowly where I lose interest and feel like I should be doing something else.. but this yoga DVD is the perfect mixture where I can stay focused and easily keep up with the routine. I just got it recently, but every time I have used it, I walk away it a great mood. I feel relaxed, less uptight, and SO much calmer. I like how she does a voice-over the dvd rather than talking while she is doing the routine and her voice is calming and soothing. I usually use the Stress Relief portion, but I look forward to doing the flexibility part more. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to work on calming their minds if the are very stressed and feeling overwhelmed, and wants to work on loosening tight muscles that have been causing them pain. I'm looking forward to using this yoga DVD more to keep becoming more flexible and getting more control over my stress level. I hope it works for you as well as it has for me!
