By Reviewer Dr. Beth #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on July 8, 2007
Format: DVD
In Living Room Yoga, instructor Eva Barash offers a down-to-earth yoga practice set--where else?--right in her living room (well, in someone's living room, this one being quite modern, with chrome furniture and a flat-screen TV). She describes her 45-minute yoga practice as being "not for beginners," as some of the poses are a bit more challenging, and she does not provide a lot of detailed form instruction. However, a separate section of the DVD, titled "The Library," offers almost 30 minutes of more detailed breakdowns for many individual postures. THe Main DVD menu includes the following options: Play All-Introduction-The Workout-The Library. There are also bonus materials, including "Getting the Most Out of Your Living Room" (see below), and a 6-minute interview with Eva.

As mentioned above, main yoga workout is about 45 minutes long, with Eva teaching live in a casual, laid-back manner (although surprisingly, she mostly uses Sanskrit names for the postures). The practice begins seated on the floor for some opening poses, including down dog and locust, with Eva's sequencing continuing to be non-traditional throughout. She does then move on to sun salutations, completing 10 total rounds: 4 modified, 4 full, and 2 with breathing only (no instruction). Following this, Eva performs some standing side stretches and then moves to the floor to lie briefly in relaxation pose and to perform a reclined twist. A standing series is next, starting with warrior 1 to warrior 2 to wide angle forward bend then side angle, triangle, and another standing forward bend. Next the difficulty level increases a bit with side angle and half moon postures, and then Eva finishes the standing work with dancer's pose.

This is by far the most accessible and friendly yoga DVD I have come across. While I love to practice with beautiful beaches on screen, I found this DVD very refreshing. I was immediately struck by the sense of familiarity, fun and humility of the video. She was doing it in a living room! You know Eva did not spend a lot to produce the video, but her sincerety, humility and sense of joy come through, and that makes her practice more enticing.

(1) Eva is so accessible - You can understand her and relate to her. Her explanations are simple and friendly. She tells you what to expect so you don't wonder in the middle of a pose whether you should be moving on to the next one. Even if you are a beginner, you will not be overwhelmed. She looks like an ordinary person (I don't mean this in a dismissive way but as a complement), who does not do "perfect" poses. Just watch when she transitions from upward facing dog to downward facing dog - she does it the way I and many other ordinary practitioners do.

(2) She seems to enjoy what she is doing. I rarely see yogis on DVD smile while practicing. In fact, I'm now trying to think of one who actually does smile while practicing.

(3) She gives instructions while actually doing the poses herself, so you know that her poses and sequence are doable. I also appreciate the fact that she doesn't do "perfect" poses.

(4) Her introduction to the DVD is very useful and practical (for example, she says that her sequence is not for complete beginners, and that if you are a complete beginner you should check the library for more explanation).

(5) Her short presentation on how to do poses using objects in your living room, while wearing jeans, is very practical and useful.

Dr. Beth Chollette & Caravaggio38 both wrote insightful reviews on both the personality, pace & content of this yoga dvd so I won't be redundant here.
The fact Eva does it in the living room is great, she's sweet, like working out with a girlfriend. She's very encouraging, she gives both the Sanskrit & English pose names, she tells you how to move your body well, she uses great analogies, "lift up your heart" & even reminders on how not to move or what to watch out for on some poses which most don't give. She also gives a lot of rests in between poses except for during the sun salutations. The extra library tutorial is great. Because of that, I think this is fine for beginner yoga practitioners or even novices. She shows good body awareness, she isn't afraid to add a unique extra stretch during downward dog that really helps open you up that I've always done on my own that's made me relax tight areas.
I'd give it 5 stars except for several reasons:
She really races through the sun salutations, but luckily that's the only place she races, she spends a perfect amount of time on all other poses. When she did it with just breathing, you see her be more aware of her body & go a little slower. She admits she races after she's done.
She has a sweet voice, but she seemed very jittery, overly chatty, racing through words, unable to be quiet though I could see she can be relaxed especially in savasana. It was a bit distracting & I couldn't relax or be more aware of my body because of it. She is silent here whereas most keep talking during savasana which is refreshing. I think it would have been perfect if she did a voice over after so she can be aware of her body during filming & relaxed voice separately.
