This video is a must-have for anyone interested in deepening and stretching their flow practice. As the back cover says: be prepared to sweat! Jenni has a strong background in Ashtanga, and really GETS the nuts and bolts of the postures. The tutorials on the difficult poses are worth the price of the DVD by themselves.
Jenni is a genius at sequencing. I love how creative she is with the sequences, and with five routines of varying lengths (so that you can find one to fit whatever time slot you have available), this DVD never gets old. I like that Jenni is depicted doing the sequences with a voiceover in the background. Her voice is calming and steady and the explanation/leadership is clear as a bell throughout. The variations in setting are nice too: beach, forest, and a beautiful ochre-walled studio.
This one's a must-have. Did I mention that? Namaste, y'all, and THANKS, Jenni!
A couple of the workouts have longer and shorter versions of the same workout. I've only done the longer versions, but like that the shorter ones exist for people who are pressed for time. Also, when the instructor introduces a variation, the screen shows a shot of that variation in the upper corner, so you can see both possibilities at once.
If you are intermediate and up you should enjoy this one, and she does offer some options if you're not advanced. Both the pose guide and the practices allow you to progress more quickly I feel than with other routines I've tried. The transition from one legged down dog to "wild thing" seemed quite simple the way she cues it for e.g.
I can't as yet do arm balances apart from crow so it's something to work towards (side crow and that scissor thing) and I like the challenge of that, but she doesn't make you feel like you should do anything other than what your body is ready for. In fact she stresses in various places that you should see how something feels first. Some days are easier than others!
Really good cuing, and for me, a nice relaxed approach. The routines themselves are challenging but done in a relaxed manner which sounds counter-intuitive, but somehow she pulls it off.
I expected the studio practice to be a bit easier than the others with less focus, but I was quite wrong. It is the most fast-paced of the routines (and may be a little fast for some) and she packs a lot in, but she slows down after a bit and allows little rests here and there to cleverly keep you going without stopping. Really loved the sequencing of that one. Lots of vinyasas and forward bend transitions to chair which my spine benefits from.Read more ›
