Product Description

In this series Maya takes you on a journey through the first 3 Chakras, introducing a new Kundalini Yoga practice for each individual Chakra. Chakras are energy centers which absorb life force or prana from the universe and are distributed through the nadis, energy channels to the nervous system, endocrinal glands adn cicrular systems. In this 3 DVD box set, Maya will guide you through the yoga practices for the first three Chakras: Courage, Creativity and Willpower, know as the lower triangle. The lower triangular chakras focus on elimination and are balanced by the upper triangular Chakras, which accumulate, create and recline.

Are you like me, highly sensitive? If so, then this may just be the perfect workout for you. Yes, it is a workout. Make no mistake about that. I've been using these dvds 5-7 days a week for almost five months. There are still kriyas (or exercise sequences) that are extremely challenging to me. I've become far stronger and more flexible, both in mind and body. My posture is better than it's ever been, and the back pain that has always plagued me, as a scoliosis sufferer, is far more manageable. I used to see a chiropractor once a month for that reason. I haven't felt a need to do that since beginning this yoga. No other sort of yoga I've tried has worked with the spine in such a direct and gentle way. So, the DVDs have already paid for themselves.

I've tried many varieties of yoga throughout the years. There is no one style that will resonate with everyone. In Kundalini Yoga, however, I have found my personal home. I am a highly feeling and sensitive person, and Kundalini Yoga is unique in the way that it addresses the safe and positive release of emotions often deemed "negative," like fear, worry, and anger. This yoga series addresses the whole person, mind, body, heart, and spirit, in such a gentle way -- it shows how to transform those feelings or passions into acceptance and bliss. My highly skeptical husband and my nephew, who are both complete neophytes to yoga, do the yoga with me regularly, and they are coming to love it as I do. There may be people who, like my husband, find talk of chakras woo-woo. That's okay. You can understand the chakras however you want. This DVD series does an excellent job, though, of explaining the emotions and processes governed by each chakra in the chakra-specific narrative portion of each dvd.

I love this set of 3 DVDs with one for each of the first 3 chakras (she has DVDs for each of the 7 chakras). Each DVD lasts for a about 40 minutes. There is a warm up section, set (kriya)for each chakra and a meditative section with exercise/s with mantra in each DVD. The warm up for the 3rd chakra was sun salutations and the warm up for the 2nd chakra was the 5 Tibetans.

The music is beautiful and I love the pieces with violin music.

The sets include some slightly different exercises to the ones in the Ravi ana series and of course some of the same.

There is little extra talking besides giving instrutions at the start of each exercise. I like this since it allows me to concentrate inwards/ focus on my body.

Valuable addition to a kundalini yoga DVD collection.

I also enjoyed her DVDs for the 5, 6 and 7 chakras

If you liked the previous Maya's Kundalini Yoga DVD, you'll like these as well. Maya's DVDs tend to be a little bit easier than Ravi and Ana's, and provide a nice change of pace.
Really like her music background!

Maya Fiennes provides an excellent Kundalini Yoga experience that is both a workout and a spiritual experience. She incorporates mudras, mantras, and meditations and offers good explanations for each step. The exercises are good for all levels (I'm a beginner and out of shape) and the music is also very good. I do wish there was an option to just have the music and no instruction except to switch poses, as Kundalini Yoga is often done with the eyes closed and I find that I now know the moves, so I desire just the music during the exercises. My other disappointment is that this set only includes the three lower chakras and I cannot yet find a place in the U.S. to get the remaining two sets for the upper four chakras. I do recommend this DVD, especially if you enjoy Kundalini Yoga.

Kundalini Yoga with Maya!

The DVD's in this box set are among my favourite Kundalini Yoga classes! I am comfortable with Maya's teaching and I take inspiration from her. I began with Maya's detox and destress and was so impressed that I went on to get her first two box sets of the journey through the chakra's. I also have some Ana and Ravi Dvd's and Gurmukh's DVD as I have connected with Kundalini Yoga and have a regular practice.

There are three classes on separate DVD's and these work with the first 3 chakra's. As other reviewers have described already I found the Sets to be quite difficult initially and then slowly but surely, as I worked within my own limits, I have found that I can achieve more and more and the benefits are amazing! I feel energised, yet blissful...wonderful! I like how the classes are structured and the warm up section prepares my body and mind for the forthcoming sets. Maya's music is lovely. I like the fact that my eyes are closed throughout, unless I need to check a pose.

I had practiced Hatha yoga for approx one year prior to discovering Kundalini yoga. kundalini Yoga is now my main practice.

I love the one-DVD-per-chakra concept and the excellent organization and flow of the workouts, which other reviewers have described. I would have rated this a 5-star series except for a few detractions.

(1) The whited-out background, which actually hurt my eyes (when they weren't shut) and reminded me of the old adage about a polar bear eating marshmallows in a snowstorm. So wearying on a day-to-day basis!

(2) The music. Too much, too loud, too foreground, too distracting from my yoga experience. Also,I kept wishing Maya had used different music for each chakra. The repetition of certain music (usually the song I liked the least) was irritating.

(3) It would have been helpful for Kundalini Yoga beginners if Maya, like Raviana, had suggested modifications for some of the more advanced poses. I am not a beginner, but certain poses (such as the accelerated plough pose on the first disc) just didn't feel safe. (I modified that one by doing spinal rolls, Happy Baby pose, and finally a full Plough.)

I'm not at all sorry I purchased this series, but whereas I had originally planned to use it exclusively for several months, because of the detractions I'll probably use it only for one 6-week rotation per year.

NEW THOUGHTS--MAYA MODIFIED (15 March 2013):

Having hit a plateau with kundalini yoga workouts, I decided to try something heretical: creative modification, using light hand weights, bands, a stability ball, variant positions. My new approach has worked like a charm, particularly with Maya's "Detox and Destress" and "Journey Through the Chakras". Although each of her workouts is well designed, my "heretical" modified versions energize me much more than the originals ever did.
