By Reviewer Dr. Beth #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on November 9, 2012
Format: DVD
I have several DVDs in the Element series (e.g., Element: Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility, ElementL Total Body Pilates With Mini Ball, and Element: Pilates Weight Loss) and enjoy all of them, so I thought I might like this DVD. This was my first experience with instructor Tamal Dodge.

Like all of the Element offerings, this DVD contains two practices, both of which are set in a pretty outdoor garden setting. Dodge is featured alone, teaching via voiceover, and the only prop needed is a yoga mat. I have provided an overview of each practice below.

YOGA FOR ENERGY (32 minutes)
Dodge begins this practice standing, moving into a standing backbend. He then performs half sun salutes. Coming into downward dog, he moves through plank, dolphin, and forearm plank. This is followed by a series which includes down dog to three-legged down dog, crescent pose, twisted side angle, warrior 2, reverse warrior 2/reverse triangle, side angle, and repeat reverse warrior 2. Dodge holds each posture for several breaths, which is quite challenging; he then repeats the entire series on the second side. Sitting on the heels, he performs breath of fire (two rounds) and belly breathing. This is followed by a series of seated poses, including full seated forward bend, seated leg stretch, reverse plank, forward bend in butterfly, and crab (aka table).

I took 2 levels of yoga at my university, and was looking to continue it on my own. Took me a while to settle on which DVD series to go with, but I checked out a preview of his videos and read reviews. I had a feeling that this was exactly what I was looking for.

Tamal is extremely clear in his instructions, and he lets you know what each pose helps do for your body and mind. The setting is beautiful and calm-- Hawaii. The background music is light and peaceful, and he apparently helped create the music, which I think is pretty cool. Overall, he just has a very calming demeanor, which is a huge part of what makes his series so ideal. When I was looking for a yoga series, the last thing I wanted was a hyper, annoying instructor-- and he's cool as a cucumber.

I personally gravitate more toward the "Relax" video, but both are excellent. The "Energy" portion is a bit of a challenge for me, but not in a bad way. The "Relax" portion is just that-- extremely relaxing. It also includes a lot of gentle but effective flexibility poses. I always feel awesome after finishing that. I would recommend this to anyone who's even remotely interested or curious about yoga.

After watching a lot of different yoga videos, it was great finding Tamal Dodge. I'm healthy except for an arthritis autoimmune disorder that causes pain and joint aches body-wide, and can make yoga poses difficult. The thing that's great about Tamal's videos is that he encourages you to only go as far as your body tells you to go, and to adapt if you need to. The Relaxation half of this video (great to do before bed) contains a couple of poses (pigeon, & threading the needle) that can be a little hard for people with pain problems, but he strongly encourages going softer, in general, and not pushing your body too hard. A book I found on yoga for arthritis suggests moving through difficult poses rather than holding them. That's been a great adaption to use with his more challenging poses (although most of his poses are not difficult at all). I highly recommend all of his yoga videos. He just has a way of encouraging and teaching that is extremely accessible and positive. I hope he creates many more, including ones geared toward people with arthritis or other illnesses.

I've done the Relaxation practice, which is 40 minutes long, and I'm really impressed with it.

Tamal Dodge, the instructor, has a soothing voice, and his cuing is great. His sequencing is different than what I've done in yoga studio classes, and I was pleasantly surprised at how relaxing the practice was. One of the unusual asanas was a variation of eagle pose while seated. His comments on what certain poses do was really interesting. One thing I really liked is that the practice isn't rushed, and he gives you a lot of quiet breathing time, which really helps to release tension while in asanas. Also, the yoga nidra as the end is very soothing and well done - it's not all talk. I'm definitely a fan of his style of teaching as a result of this practice.

The music is relaxed, a little bit new age jazz. A horn is a little loud at minute 33, but overall, the music is very nice.

The setting, like all Element DVDs, is outdoors in a garden that seems to be on the Pacific Ocean. It's very beautiful and pleasant, and one of the reasons why I like the Element DVDs.

No props are needed, which surprised me. I did use a blanket during Sukhasana, easy pose, because it makes sitting for a while more comfortable for me. However, no need for blocks or straps.

Although I haven't tried the Energy practice yet, I have to rave about the relaxation practice. The feeling I had at the end of the practice is the closest thing I've found in a DVD that compares to a yoga studio class.
