5.0 out of 5 stars Fun! March 1, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love the sequences in this DVD!

The first part includes the "Fire Sequence" along with the infamous 108 wide leg push ups. It sounds daunting but you can go at your own pace (I did 10 push ups per round to start instead of 12) and if you shoulders/wrists are too sore to do more push ups, you can hold plank pose, drop into chaturanga dandasana and hold that position, come into side plank, or just sit back in downward dog. I have enjoyed assimilating this sequence into my practice since I found myself doing alot of transitions between chaturanga to up-dog and back to down dog during my practices so much that my left shoulder began to make this clicking sound and I developed a knot in my left pectoral. The fire sequence really helped me retain my upper body strength while introducing new movements and a nice counter pose (Anahatanasana) to open up the shoulders and chest.

The second part ("Creative Core") made me realize just how weak my deep hip flexors are! Rea starts doing these supine wide leg circles she calls "mandala legs" and when I tried it the first time my legs didn't want to go any where and I just laid on my floor and laughed. But I've noticed a great improvement in my knee/hip range of motion after practicing the "Creative Core" section a few times.

I would recommend this DVD to anyone who has practiced yoga for a while and are looking for a quick routine to have fun with and become more familiar with areas of the body that may not get much use.

If you are new to yoga or if you have shoulder/wrist issues, this DVD is not for you. I can recommend that you find a qualified teacher in your area who instructs a yoga style that you are comfortable with. Rea provides little instruction with respect to proper alignment in each pose and the pace at which she goes through the sequence may seem rushed for those just learning yoga.

5.0 out of 5 stars 108 Push Ups! December 24, 2008
By Yoni
Format:DVD
When I first saw the preview where she says there are going to be 108 pushups I thought she was crazy! but then I discovered it is broken up into 9 sets of 12 within the "Agni Namaskar" (fire salutation) the first 24 minute segment which is based on the traditional B salutation structure but with different variations of hero/crescent lunge and chair pose every round (with twists or with hands clasped behind the back) and different backbends (from cobra to bow) and of course 12 pushups instead of the usual one! that was quite challenging and I couldn't finish 12 pushups in the last 3 sets because my upper body was quivering and fatigued but after every push up set you do get some rest with a counter pose stretch. The music is also great on this DVD , there's no drums this time and I recognized 2 songs from "Yoga Trance Dance" .The second segment "Creative Core" (8 min) is different than the one on the lower body DVD , it is a nice mix of yogic ab exercises like bicycle with bent and straight legs (similar to the core abs segment on Yoga Shakti) and more creative and free form exercises similar to the original creative core abs DVD. I definitely felt it my core and my upper body ,although it is not a complete upper body training , it is a fun yoga workout and another great addition to my Shiva Rea and Yoga collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for beginners, but amazing April 18, 2009
Format:DVD
Do not purchase this DVD if you are new to yoga. As a intermediate level yogi - this still kicks my butt. There is little instruction on how to move into each pose, as she assumes the audience is familiar enough with asanas to move with her verbal cues. That's not to say this isn't one of my favorite Shiva DVDs.

Hello arms! I could not do 12 reps for each segment, so I started with 6, and now I'm up to 10. I can feel myself get stronger literally every time I practice with this DVD.

The core section is simply amazing too. I have a pretty strong core and I was totally feeling it the next day after my first session. Her positions really work deep muscles that even my pilates DVDs don't touch.

So my recommendation - if you're comfortable with yoga and would like to build strength - this DVD is perfect. If you're a newbie - pass on this... for now. Come back to it later!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great challenge for the upper body October 9, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although this DVD is focused on the upper-body strength it is still very well balanced incorporating forward bends, twists and backbends that increase in intensity as the practice continues. The practice starts with a short warm-up before beginning agni namaskar. Basically there are three main rounds.

ROUND 1: consists of three sets of up to 12 push-ups totalling up to 36. In between each set of 12 push-ups in round one you incorporate cobra pose, an option upward dog, downward facing dog, warrior one holding the legs still while raising the arms overhead on the in-breath and lowering the arms with the out-breath.

ROUND 2: consists again of three sets of up to 12 push-ups totalling up to 36. In between each set of 12 push-ups in round one the intensity of the backbend is increased from round 1, substituting salabasana for cobra. You practice the backbend three times between each set of push-ups. Again in round 1 you have the optional upward dog, and then move to downward dog. This round you move to warrior one and clasp the hands behind your back. Lift your chest on the inhale, keeping warrior 1 legs bending the crown of the head to the inside of the front foot on the exhale. You move with the breath 2 or three times. This is done between each set of push-ups.

ROUND 3: consists again of three sets of up to 12 push-ups totalling up to 36. The intensity is increased this time. Before moving into the push-ups you take twisted chair pose to each side. In between each set of push-ups you move into warrior 1, then high lunge with twist. The backbend intensity is again increased as you now are doing bow pose (danurasana) instead of salabasana.

Perfect for meditation and relaxation. She has a calming voice. I'm not a yogi, so I don't look exactly like Shiva, so do a modified position if you're not flexible like me.
