Tara's practice I would consider to be at an intermediate level and is about 50 minutes long. There are the normal, classic poses, chair, up dog, down dog, warrior one & two, twists, bridge/wheel, pigeon and many others. I thought this dvd flowed really well and I loved the twists, that really helped me relax along with, (as always) the deep breathing, which is the key in any yoga program. The dvd is beautifully shot, in a desert background and the music is calming without being too low-key or too overwhelming. Tara has three exercisers that demonstrate the poses and she points out form but she does not do the poses herself. For some people this kind of style is not what they may want, however I felt it really fit and it didn't bother me in the least. The poses were easy to follow and my hubby also joined in (he does yoga intermittently) and he loved the dvd and wanted to know if I would be purchasing it (highly likely). If you can do the routine without instruction (I personally find this difficult, as I don't know how one would know when to come out of down dog, etc), there is the option to do the dvd muted, with only the music and no instruction.Read more ›
Tara Stiles leads the "class" live rather than via voiceover. The class takes place outside with three participants.
It is 50 minutes long but the last 5 minutes is Savasanna.
Poses I remember are: thread the needle, warrior 2, warrior 1, low lunge, reverse warrior, chair, tree, squat, side planks, bridge, half pigeon and regular pigeon, and lots of twists. There are also a lot of chatarungas and upward facing dogs, downward facing dogs, and standing forward bends. There are a lot of variations and modifications mentioned. The music is very very mellow.
The flow is very nice but you do work up a little sweat. Some poses I noticed not included are: crow, warrior 3, pose of the dancer, boat, bow, eagle, balancing stick, shoulder stands, and plow.
I think this is much more doable than the new york sessions from Tara Stiles and I can't wait to try the other new one she came out with this past Tuesday. Thanks, Tara!
