Ali MacGraw - Yoga Mind & Body VHS
Yoga Mind & Body VHS with (53 Minute) Run Time.
Clean white sand and a cool predawn sky are the backdrops for this stunningly produced video, complete with an upbeat New Age soundtrack. Don't be put off by the MTV-like camera work, as this video constitutes an excellent, well-balanced workout. Ali MacGraw and a supporting cast of something-for-everyone models work through this 50-minute routine, overseen by yoga master Erich Schiffman. The first minutes focus on ujjayi breathing, then MacGraw leads us through a complete practice of shoulder stretches, sun salutations, back bends and twists, and standing poses. No equipment is required, but a sticky mat is recommended. Unlike other videos targeted for beginners, Yoga Mind & Body does not offer modifications for difficult poses and so is best suited for practitioners with some previous experience. --Jhana Bach

To tell you the truth, I've never been able to do every single pose, and my quads are very tight, but I could listen to Eric Schiffman speak all day. He
has a soothing voice, and his choice of words adds to the tranquil nature of yoga. I haven't done yoga for awhile, and there are easier, more basic yoga DVDs available, but I recommend this DVD if you have a knowledge of yoga, and you can judge for yourself if a pose is too difficult. Yoga is generally a very safe exercise if you listen to your body and only stretch as far as your body can go (and maybe just a bit further). You can hurt yourself if you consider yoga a competitive activity.
I've purchased other yoga videos that are filmed next to a waterfall or beach, but I always return to this one that was filmed in stunning white sand. The atmosphere is different from any other DVD that I've seen. I always return to this one. I am so happy that this DVD was re-released.
The Yogi's voice matched with the music is sort of 'trance-like' and that does not bother me. If you have yoga basics under your belt already, his instruction is very straight forward and the movements flow. It's just about 45 minutes and I never feel like it's that long, it's over before I know it. I know the flow very well and I don't watch the DVD as I'm doing it, but scenery is beautiful. Great DVD.
This tape is not dated after all these years !
