And that is what someone in pain needs!

This video will work for beginners and even more advanced practitioners.
Although I am very pleased with this DVD, I would offer a few cautions.

NOTE: I received a free review copy of this DVD from the web site Metapsychology Online.

I took a yoga workshop with Desirée Rumbaugh, the instructor of this DVD, in September 2008, and it was absolutely amazing. However, I also tried Rumbaugh's previously two DVD releases, Yoga to the Rescue and Yoga to the Rescue for Back Pain, and unfortunately found them to be be disappointing. Happily, this latest release succeeds where the prior two videos failed.

One important change which Rumbaugh made for this DVD is that there are two separate 30-minute practice segments: the "Tutorial" offers more comprehensive instruction plus a detailed review of modifications for most of the postures, whereas the "Flow Sequence" is a faster-moving, more dynamic session based on the postures introduced during the tutorial. For both segments, Rumbaugh has an assistant, Andrew Riven, who displays the modified versions of the poses. Rumbaugh instructs the Tutorial segment via voiceover, although a few of the segments are preceded by brief live introductions. The chapters of the Tutorial are listed below:

*Wall Shoulder Stretch & Chair Pose
*Neck Strengthening
*Sphinx & Cobra
*Bow Pose
*Down Dog
*Locust Pose
*Side-to-Side Leg Lifts
*Lunge with Twist
*Side Plank
*Shoulder Stand
*Bridge, Plow & Shoulder Stand

As the title suggests, the Flow Sequence moves along at a significantly quicker pace. Rumbaugh again teaches via voiceover, but there are no chapter breakdowns and no pauses between segments. The entire practice continues in this vigorous manner before concluding with the short (approximately 4 minutes) relaxation.

Let me just say, I've never written a review before and after watching only 15 minutes of this DVD I felt a review was necessary.

As a Yoga Therapist and Licensed Massage Therapist, with over 25 years of specialized training in injury rehabilitation and prevention, I purchased this DVD to check it out as a possible referral source for my clients. Wow was I shocked! First of all, Desiree talks alot about how Yoga can heal this and fix that (no matter what condition). That is a lot for someone to claim without backup. And with what medical degree? Second, in the tutorial she begins with radically extended poses of the lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine along with massive overstretching of the anterior shoulder capsule. My clients, who are seeking pain relief with my help, would be shocked if I gave them any of these poses! Far too challenging and risky for anyone with a neck or shoulder injury or chronic pain. Especially beginners! The alignment she and the gentleman show in the tutorial is horrible and not proper bio-mechanically. My body hurt just watching! I would guess that this video causes more pain than it fixes. What do I recommend? Viniyoga Therapy with Gary Kraftsow DVD 2-Pack (Low Back, Sacrum & Hips plus Upper Back, Neck & Shoulders). Yes, his videos are a tad on the simple and repetitive side. And that is what someone in pain needs! Something simple, repeated with loads of variation, to effectively help problem areas. If you have pain, stay away from the "Yoga to the Rescue" series. Yoga is great, when appropriately applied for an individual, but it's not on these DVDs. Sorry I ever purchased it.

I bought this dvd because I have a terribly tight, uncomfortable neck (any time I go for a massage, the therapist says 'I hope I helped you. You have A LOT of tension in your neck'), and I was hoping that this dvd would help with my neck issues. I have been to a few yoga classes and am basically a beginner. It is great that this dvd has a tutorial, because it would otherwise be way too fast paced and advanced for me. I have started with the tutorial, and I sometimes have to pause the dvd to make sure that I am doing things right. I haven't tried the flow sequence yet because I think it will be too quick. I do think that the poses are helping my neck (it is definitely going to take time and patience), and I am pretty happy that I bought the dvd. In order to get the most of of this dvd, I think that I should probably take some more yoga classes so that I am more adept at moving fluently from pose to pose and can ask questions about certain poses (which of course you can't do to a dvd). I would defintiely not buy this dvd if you have never done yoga because I think it would be challenging and frustrating.

Practicing from this video has created huge change in my shoulders! After doing either of the 30 minute video options(there are 2 options, one tutorial and one flow sequence), my shoulders feel more relaxed and my posture looks better. I feel great immediately after doing this video, and furthermore, doing it one or twice a week has strengthened my posture, creating longer lasting relief in my upper back area all the time.
This video uses a combination of strengthening the area between the shoulder blades and stretching the fronts of the shoulders. The exercises are unique, creative, and target the shoulders from an interesting perspective (back of the heart, front of the heart, shoulders in relationship to hips and relationship to abs.) I definitely recommend this if you have stiff, tense upper shoulders! After years of just dealing with mild pain, I have found wonderful relief and strength with this video.
I agree with the other reviews that this DVD is most helpful if you are already familiar with yoga, especially Anusara yoga.
I think its important to note what type of "rescue" this DVD offers. For me, my neck and shoulders are generally stiff from a forward rounded posture, from reading, sitting at a desk, driving, and working at a computer. This DVD offers a lot of upper back arches, chest stretches, and heart opening postures to counteract the forward rounding positions. For this reason, this DVD does offer relief and general strengthening to open up my posture and reduce forward rounding. I do not have any neck or shoulder injuries, and I probably wouldn't recommend this DVD to help with injuries.
