Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
One of the perks of practicing in a yoga studio is the energy that envelops the room when we are surrounded by intention and drawn deeper in to the present moment. Flow and Yin: A Balanced Yoga Practice provides this studio-like environment as it includes students with different body types and practice levels sharing their energy with you as you practice with them.
Flow and Yin includes an energizing flow sequence to strengthen the muscular tissues and a grounding yin sequence to stimulate energy flow through the connective tissues. Flow includes sun salutation variations and yin provides deep stretching into the shoulders, hips, inner groin and spine. Flow and Yin can be completed together or separately. Combining these two styles of yoga can lead to a more peaceful mind, healthy body, and balanced life. May all beings benefit from our practice.

This is truly an AUTHENTIC yoga practice!! You will become aware of your breath. Donna reminds you to make the pose for you -- there is no perfect pose. She continually makes suggestions and seems to know just when and where to offer them. She offers variations that will suit you at any level of your practice and reminds you to practice them when you are ready. I found myself experiencing calmness throughout this challenging practice. She reminds you of your intention, and if you already forgot -- she is the kind of teacher who has already covered it for you in the beginning.
All in all, this is an enjoyable yoga practice. If you are looking for a great yoga workout -- this DVD will take you to a higher level. If you are seeking to find peace, calm, connection and teaching -- you will find it through this DVD. As Donna makes clear in her liner notes & credits, her intentions are for the benefit of all beings. Just by purchasing this DVD you are doing a great part for yourself and other beings!
I wasn't disappointed one bit. I loved the beginning, feeling as though my muscles were being strengthened, yet with the guidance of Donna to not feel as though the practice must be perfect and to come back to my breath. I have never had a yin relaxation/stretching session such as the one in this DVD; I felt so renewed and open after it! I have been having problems with certain yoga poses, maybe because I wasn't holding the poses long enough to gain enough benefit. I feel that Donna is an encouraging and inspirational yoga teacher with great wisdom. She's also very articulate and her voice is soothing, as is the music.
