On a trip to Maui with my sister in early December of 2014, I took one of her classes. I have take the occasional yoga class, and always enjoyed them, but I have never stuck to it. I tend to not be very athletic and pretty lazy.
I enjoyed her class immensely. I cannot claim to remember right now what Jennifer said during class that touched me so deeply, only that it did. I remember trying to tell her as much that day, and also taking her postcard. Two years later, I am still trying to get fit and healthy. (I will turn 40 in June and I am currently at my most unhealthy weight ever - at least sixty pound overweight, and finally starting to feel the effects on my knees and joints).
I looked Jennifer up and saw that she had this DVD. I bought it right away! Of course, that was over six months ago, and I didn't bother to do anything until three weeks ago.
I am finally starting to built a good practice by using the Wisdom Flow Yoga DVD. I had started with doing about 20 minutes in the morning and then 30... what ever my scheduled and strength allowed. But, now I am finally doing the whole Beginner Routine.
I Love that this DVD is broken up into a few parts. There is a wonderful 45 minutes Beginner workout. A longer Intermediate/Advanced workout. And introduction by Jennifer which explains a few principles of Wisdom Flow, and a section that walks you through adjustments.
I know that I have only just begun to follow this path, and that it is going to take a lot of hard work and practice to see results. But I am more confident than I have ever been before that I can succeed.
I hope that I can visit Maui again some day in the future and take a few more classes with Jennifer!
Also, I want to say thank you to Jennifer. Thank you so much for your class that day, a little over two years ago. Thank you for your DVD, Videos, and classes in general. Thank you for everything that you're accomplishing through your Yoga practice.
And remember, If you're on of those people who thinks "Yoga doesn't work for me".
Yesterday I had the following thought after I finished the video... "Yoga doesn't work FOR you, you WORK for Yoga."
In the Intro section Jennifer begins with an inspiring message (this is usually the section of a DVD I usually skip but for some reason it flipped to it and I listened for a change and it was a delight). She reminds us that living is a life of balance between purposeful, balanced, responsible living in union with joyful, passionate, exuberant living. Even though she doesn't mention God, it still reminded me that that's exactly the life God intends and wants for all of us.
I loved her 75 minute Intermediate/Advanced flow! The setting is both inside a studio and outside in a grassy park with scenes switching gently back and forth. It's shot in a very professional way with great camera work. She leads with a number of students with an amazing voiceover and great music in the background. It is a challenging power flow with an almost dancelike flowing feel to it especially in the beginning (her transitions move in and out of poses fluidly and beautifully). There will also be a good enough amount of vinyasa's (chatarunga, updog, downdog) to get the blood pumping and the body warm. Her incredible voice over has amazing cueing and is calming, with great direction while also inpiring, for example, "welcome challenge as you reach up, surrender to grace bowing in, inhale readiness look forward, exhale poise step back or float back"(yet funny enough without coming off as cheesy or sappy). None of her awesome voiceover slows down the flow in any way. She also likes to throw in some great handbalancing and inverted poses throughout, which I love (Quarter section 1: side crow, crow; Quarter section 2: one-legged crow or crane; Quarter section 3: sage 2 pose, side plank to wheel, dolphin to forarm stand, headstand; Quarter section 4: one-legged sage 1 to tripod headstand).
Overall this is an amazing practice and worth every 5 stars!! She's up there with the best of them: Eoin Finn, Bryan Kest (1st dvd's), Shiva Rae, Inhale yoga (Oxygen TV, funky music Steve Ross), Mark Blanchard, Baron Baptiste, Donna Helm-Yost (Flow and Yin), Yoga Radiance, Yogatopia, MTV Power Yoga, Power Yoga for Strength & Endurance, XFlowsion, etc.
