Review

Shilpa's Yoga an introduction to "dynamic free-flow" yoga practice is high on production quality (the camerawork is excellent) and it successfully merges Shilpa Shetty's immense global appeal with one of India's most well known 'Way-of-Life' Yoga. This DVD has a far greater commercial viability than Shilpa's perfume for its market is extremely wide and encompasses both Indian as well as Western clientele. If Yoga fascinates you (or Shilpa Shetty) then go for it today! --platform47.com

To be fair to Shilpa, apart from capitalizing on the Oomph factor, she makes an extremely genuine attempt of helping you delve into the world of Yoga by giving personalized anecdotes from her own hectic life. Yoga, according to her is a lifestyle choice and proved immensely valuable during outdoor shoots when she couldn't carry weights for exercising. It's perfectly scientific, safe and each asana aims at a specific body part. After a brief introduction, it's time for the Workout. Shilpa showcases the various asanas catering to various body parts while a voiceover (in a thick British accent) explains the dos and donts. --platform47.com

The most engaging part of this bonus feature is Shilpa posing atop a boat amidst the peaceful Kerala Backwaters. In the Meet Shilpa section, Cheeni Kum child star Swini Khare gives a lowdown on Shilpa's career. It's an interesting way of presenting Shilpa's Filmgraphy for Swini vows to be a die hard Shilpa fan. Shilpa's Stills will hold attention for those who wish to perfume their desktops with the designer S2 pictures. It's time to come to two of the most amusing features of this DVD. The Behind the Scenes and the Bloopers While the Behind the Scenes finds director Manish Jha playing SRK pranks, Shilpa showing off the disco steps, the fast paced windy conditions causing problems on the outdoor, the camera grueling along on the trolley, the numerous look-downs on the monitor and the tiring painful moments of doing the same shot again-n-again. The Bloopers are an opportunity for Shilpa to laugh at her own expense. Be it the tongue twisting script or a posture gone sour, Shetty good-naturedly breaks into a hearty laughter nevertheless and you just can't help but smile unabashedly. --platform47.com

Product Description

The DVD promises Shilpa s fitness secrets for a lean, toned body while retaining all the feminine curves . She shares instructions for stress and tension release, increased energy and vitality, weight loss, improved circulation and digestion. The video, shot on location in Kerala, also has her demonstrating specific sequences on how to improve concentration, agility and flexibility.

"Everyone wants to feel and look good. I discovered something that did both, Yoga and I'm completely overwhelmed by the beauty and power of it. Yoga is a lifestyle choice. It's a management system for life and it is the most holistic approach to life that I have ever come across. It strengthens, tones and cures. It works on body, mind and soul. Yoga has had a spectacular impact on my life. I'm hoping it does the same for you" - Shilpa Shetty.

The workout incudes 35 Asanas (Postures) Back Asanas, Stomach Asanas, Standing Asanas, Sitting Asanas, Neck & Shoulder Asanas, Pranayam (Breathing).....

5.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't feel like work, but it works! October 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is my first real attempt at yoga, as I tried yoga years ago and found it too boring. Well, I have mild scoliosis and need a strength-training routine, but I hate to sweat and workout. I decided to do yoga one day and see what everyone has been raving about. (I like Pilates, but found the ability to tone and sculpt the rear limited). I looked on amazon and found this gem. I've heard of Shilpa before and decided to try it, as I trust an Indian to instruct me on yoga. This dvd is so calming, and the instruction is so thorough. Shilpa never speaks, yet I find her adorable all the same (how is that?). The narrator sounds like someone off the kids' show, "Paddington Bear", but it's charming after the second time rather than annoyingly stuffy. Best of all, working with this dvd every day (I do lying down, and stomach asanas one day, and the rest on the second), I've found this lifted and toned my rear like no other workout EVER! And I've done the step workouts, weights, you name it. It's so weird that it doesn't even seem like a workout when you're doing it. I like how the narrator also tells you how each asana benefits you holistically. The dvd gets right into the workout and there's not too much talking. Can't say enough great things about this workout. If there's anything I would not praise the dvd on, it's that it takes a bit more time to get to the menu options when you pop it in, but that's such a small price for such wonderful benefits. I feel like I'm treating myself everyday I workout now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome yoga for beginners, safe for 10 to 60 year olds! February 12, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this yoga video. I think it is probably the best ever beginner yoga video I've seen, and as advertised on the cover: it is safe for a 10 year old or a 60 year old! Nonetheless, in the spirit of giving a useful review I am going to state both pros and cons.

Cons: If you are American and used to lots of bells and whistles you may find this style kind of slow going. This is NOT a flow yoga dvd. She demonstrates each pose once (rather beautifully), pauses, and then moves on to the next. The voice over suggests that as a beginner you do each pose once, and as you get proficient you might do each pose two or three times. I completely agree with this advice. Doing each pose once took me about 40 or 50 minutes, you can shorten the workout if you want by skipping the breath exercises.

If you are used to the idea that every yoga sequence MUST have an inversion, the closest thing to an inversion is the "half plough pose" and the standing forward fold, and wheel. There's no down dog, no shoulder stand, head stand etc. Once again, as a yoga instructor myself, I agree with this choice - as this is a safe beginners tape. If you want to learn that stuff, you really ought to go to the gym and learn from a live teacher.

If you are used to doing yoga in a studio you may notice that there is no corpse pose/relaxation pose at the end of the workout. You can of course, add that in yourself if you want.

My only other complaint would be that in Warrior I, I notice Shilpa has her knee way out further than her ankle. Even the voice over is directing you to NOT do this. It is better to go no more than 90 degrees, as this is a lot of pressure to put on your knee.

The Pluses far far out weight the cons: This is a nice sequence with clear direction.

A friend of mine was kind enough to lend me her copy of Shilpa's Yoga a couple of weeks ago. I was sceptical, because I've tried other yoga programs that made me feel somehow deficient for not being a pretzel. To be honest, I've never enjoyed most physical exercise. However, from my first run through Shilpa's Yoga, I was hooked. Indeed, as you can see, I just bought my own copy! With the exception of one pose (Chakrasana) I was able to complete each exercise, in good form, and as I did it, I could feel the muscles working. Yet, at no time did it feel like "work" or something I "had to do." By the end, I experienced (for only the second time in my life) an "exercise high." I felt pleasant, rested yet energetic, and upbeat. Believe me, at the time my friend lent me the DVD, I was feeling none of those things.

As I tried it on the following days last week, I began to see how well-thought-out the program was. A muscle that is stretched in one asana is relaxed in the next. Again, with the exception of Chakrasana (which I have to "cheat on" by using a chair) all of these poses should be in the reach of most relatively healthy people.
Plus, the workout has continued to give me a pleasant happy feeling every time I've done it.

Another plus for me is the lovely surroundings, and Shilpa's lovely, coiffed, lightly made up appearance. She and I have very similar body types and it's helpful for me to see another large bosomed female execute asanas that have in the past given me problems due to the problems inherent in arm placement when one is "blessed overmuch" in that area. By looking at her, I can see roughly how the asana should look when I do them.
