YOGA JOURNAL REVIEWS DEEP STRETCH YIN YOGA with Mimi Solaire A counter balance to vigorous yoga practice, Yin Yoga entails passively remaining in a pose, often supported by props, for several minutes. The three 20-minute sequences for the back, hips, legs, neck and shoulders in Deep Stretch are based on this approach. It would be easy to let your mind wander while in these long held poses, but Mimi Solaire, a yoga teacher and member of the International Association of Yoga Thereapists, engages your attention with clear instructions supported by vivid images, practical explanations of the postures benefits, and ideas on how to approach the practice. There s also a 10-minute bonus superstretch session at the end. Deep Stretch is a relatively brief but effective practice (the sequences can be done either separately or in combination for a longer practice), making it an excellent tool for keeping the mind focused, calm and alert as you breathe and stretch in juicy Yin Yoga poses.

Mimi is an excellent teacher. Her deep stretch video is great for anyone who wants to become more flexible, feel better and age gracefully. Her easy to follow instructions , insights and wisdom makes this video a great addition to your home yoga practice. --Ian Lopatin, owner/founder AT ONE YOGA and Spiritual Gangster
This workout provides three, 20 minute yoga inspired stretching sessions. It is accessible to all levels, from novices to advanced yogi's wishing for a sequence within which to really deepen their personal practice. Mimi instructs the workout alone. She chose to do the instruction in voiceover which I felt was perfect for this type of stretching. The music offered a "new age" melody which was relaxing and soothing. The set was pure white and Mimi wore an all white outfit and performed the workout on a white shaggy rug. I thought it was visually appealling and created a sense of calmness. You can choose to do any of the sequences from the Main Menu. The offerings are as follows: Full Program, Back Stretches, Hips & Legs, Neck & Shoulders and Bonus Super Stretch. My favorite part of the program is that throughout each pose Mimi holds each position for 1-2 minutes. This really opens up tight muscles and allows a deep relaxation to naturally occur. Mimi also ends each segment with a brief relaxation pose (she does encourage the participant to stay as long as they feel is necessary however). --Video Fitness Review by Denise Ruble September 2009

So, why did I buy this DVD? I have a full time job, a part time job, a mortgage, and I'm a year into a two-year executive MBA program. I feel tense most of the time, and I was looking for an outlet for all of that stress.
I felt different after just one session with Mimi. I'll tell you now that you might not feel like you're doing anything while you go through the DVD (I didn't), but you WILL see and feel results. I'm a former figure skater (15 years) and dancer, and now I run. I honesty don't know how I lived my life before Mimi.
Mimi is calm and encouraging, and while I was initially skeptical, I now completely trust her. Her program allows you to relax completely and deeply. It's a time to take inventory of both your body and mind. Many of us have very busy schedules, and the only time we stop moving is when we're asleep. I've found this DVD to be both a physical and emotional experience. If you have stress in your life, unacknowledged emotions you need to work through, or if you're just looking for some peace and self reflection, buy this DVD. You will not be sorry.
