Product Description

Yoga Inside Out - Go Deeper focuses on body mechanics and optimal alignment to maximize the benefits of yoga practice and expand strength and flexibility at the intermediate - advanced level.

Created by Paula Tursi, Founder and Director of NYC-based Reflections Yoga, the program focuses on awareness of the mechanics and dynamics of the spine to deepen the benefits of yoga practice by fully developing the body's potential for balanced spinal elongation, extension, and the rotations found in a wide range of yogic asanas. The program also teaches a deeper approach to hip and shoulder opening through correct alignment of the spine.

Paula's lesson in yoga body mechanics emphasizes the correlation between the neck and the lower back and teaches balancing the dynamic alignment of the spine. We tend to move from the more mobile parts of the spine - neck or lower back - leaving out the thoracic spine (middle part of the spine that connects to the rib cage) which results in loss of depth and range of motion. For example, lack of extension in the thoracic region during backbends limits range of motion and puts unnecessary stress on neck and lumbar areas. The spinal region is the container of all nerve transmission so when it is out of alignment we become vulnerable to referred nerve pain such as sciatica, headaches, or disc problems. Finding ways to maximize balanced spinal elongation and flexibility while improving integration between the spine and the joints creates flowing, deep, and safe movement, perfect for transitioning to intermediate or advanced level yoga without strain or injuries.

The spine is a series of joints, and every joint in the body is an opportunity for movement. Deeply-ingrained habits of the sedentary lifestyle limit mobility and access to the freeing and healing benefits of yoga.

Approaching the the body as finely-tuned instrument, Paula offers an 80-minute yoga practice built on developmental progressions of asanas and designed to enhance body awareness and unlock it's hidden potential. She focuses on the fact that truly effective and functional movement or asana starts first from the inner body, then radiates out, assisted by breath and balanced alignment.

Throughout the practice, Paula and two assistants demonstrate different levels within the intermediate-advanced range, and provide variations for different levels of fitness and flexibility<.i>.

A superb method for taking your yoga practice to a new level, Paula's program is great for body conditioning and weight-loss.

Paula is a very knowledgeable about body mechanics.
YogaGirl
Balancing poses follow such as tree poses, high lunges, warrior three variations and so much more.

In fact, this DVD would be suitable for a beginner who was in reasonably good physical condition.

The is the second Yoga instructional program by Paula Tursi.It is lengthy, detailed and rich in benefits. If you purchased her first program ,"Yoga, the healing way", you will be well on your way to this advanced level. To begin, there is a remarkable introduction into the program with powerful words from Paula before beginning the program:
"The deepest human drive is the drive to find connection. We spend most of our lives feeling disconnected to ourselves and our bodies or other people. We spend our time looking to others to help us regain our connection when we are looking for is already apart of us. What we fear most of all is looking into ourselves. We fear this more than the loss of connection. In yoga we are able to see realistic, so that the body does not make unrealistic demands to fill mental desires."

To begin: Understanding how the spine works; Paula and student, and "Elvis the skeleton" demonstrate anatomy and functionality of the spine. Correct body alignment during asanas to prevent injury during spinal twists, frightened cat and cow, warrior poses, learning to elongating the spine to avoid injuries. A beautiful concept on how the body operates in spirals rather than straight lines.

A breathing segment follows: "Breath of fire, pranyama , three part breath, ujjayi breathing warming the body for vinyasa practice.
All asanas are demonstrated by three different body types, very viewer friendly and allowing for realistic goals in personal practice. Poses are vividly described with Paula narrating carefully, each move and proper alignment, while two students practice along, each with variations in personal practice.

Next is a Warm up with Sun salutations, using forward bends, lunges, cobra and plank poses.

The instruction on this DVD is outstanding. I have been practicing yoga for 10 years and am often frustrated by the poor quality of the instruction on many yoga DVDs (of which I have tried quite a few). This one is refreshingly different, however, in its quality. The setting/graphics are a bit dull (I like to pretend I'm not in my living room practicing when I'm in my living room practicing!) but otherwise this is a great yoga DVD. I especially like that the sections are clearly separated so you can do whatever you're in the mood for/have time for on that particular day, or go to the instructional sections for more information. Overall an excellent choice for a guided home yoga practice.

I really enjoyed this DVD. I loved the anatomical instruction in the
beginning and the ability to follow anyone of the three people who are all
doing useful variations. I am a beginner and it gave me a good place to
start, and then the ability and encouragement to see where I could go. I
also really appreciated the use of real people in the DVD. It wasn't a super model workout, but one that is realistic and for real people. I also like how it was broken down into sections so when I don't have the time I can just work on Sun Salutes if I want to. There is also a great part for breathing and meditation that I have used by itself. I would have like the location to be more inspiring, but the teaching was so clear and multi-leveled that I didn't bother me as much.

Everyone has given very detailed reviews so I don't have much more to add other than how I felt while doing the dvd. Paula is a very knowledgeable about body mechanics. I appreciated her instructions. I also appreciated that she had students of different body types in the class. The class has every element of a typical 90 minute yoga class; pranamaya, asana, savasana, and meditation. I did have some issues that are worth mentioning:

1. She referred to Kapalabhati breathing as breath of fire. It is not. They are 2 different breaths and it is common for non kundalini yoga teachers to get this wrong. Kapalabhati (cleasning breath) focuses on the exhale with no inhale. Breath of fire has an equal inhale and exhale which is light like sipping but thru the nose only.

2. Paula's form on the dvd bothered me, a lot. Her shoulders were slouching forward on a lot of the poses. As another reviewer said, do what she says not what she does.

3. The music was too loud and quite annoying especially during the meditation. ALL yoga dvds should have a music off option.

Beyond these minor complaints, this a good dvd for everyone, including beginners. The advanced poses are crow, side crow and tripod headstand. The other poses are quite basic and very accesible. A good addition to one's yoga dvd library.

The instruction in this DVD is detailed with attention to good body dynamics. The practice flows along at a moderate pace, and the music is conducive to an inward focus. The instructor's voice is gentle and soothing. I found the elaborate approach to warrior I sort of silly - I mean, the point is to align the pelvis with the front of the mat, but once you've learned that, the long approach (starting with the front knee straight, and getting the whole torso aligned before bending it) seems like a beginner's exercise. In fact, this DVD would be suitable for a beginner who was in reasonably good physical condition. While there are a couple of advanced poses, this DVD would not be terribly challenging for an advanced practitioner. The missing star is for a few occasions where the timing of the instruction was not good, and I had to come part of the way out of an asana to look at the video.
