Shiva Rea has been studying yoga since the young age of 14, when she took it up in an attempt to understand her name. She has remained true to her practice of a Vinyasa (flow)-based yoga that incorporates her background in dance and bodywork, as well as her own personal experience. In her teaching she emphasizes strength, intuition, fluidity, meditation, and wisdom in action. Her travels have taken her all over the globe to India, Africa, Nepal, Bali and the Caribean, and she is currently a faculty member at UCLA's Arts and Cultures Program, where she also received her Master's degree in dance movement therapy. With this interactive release filmed in beautiful regions of India and the Maldive Islands, students can select their favorite practices from a menu to put together a sequence that is specially tailored to their needs. Viewers can select from a variety of moving poses, meditations, and relaxations, and Shiva provides a list of suggested sequences of various lengths and levels of intensity.
NOTE:The Disc contains 4 Segments(Segments are Basic Flow, Solar Flow 1, Solar Flow 2, and Lunar Flow). Each segement has to be selected individually from the main menu and played.

If you're deciding between this one and another of her DVDs, a better choice would be "Daily Energy." That one has some great workouts and overall better sequences. This still isn't a terrible choice, but better definitely exists.
But that's not all. The Yoga Matrix, consisting of the 30 individual components that make up the larger programs, allows you to create your own sequences. Thus, you can emphasize backbends, focus on standing poses, or just do forward bends if that is your preference. That is the beauty of this dvd--the variety of practice it offers. The range includes opening meditations, sun and moon salutations, dancing warrior variations, standing pose options, backbends, ha kriya, core work, supine poses, forward bends, shoulder openers, lunges, meditation, inversions, and handstands. You will find energizing sequences and relaxing ones, challenging asanas, and options for working up to them. Times for each component are listed in the accompanying booklet. There is something for everyone in this dvd.
Shiva Rea leads you through the practice on a sandy strip by the ocean, with the waves and sky behind her. Her flexibility allows her to demonstrate the full expression and beauty of each pose. Her narration is soothing and well-timed, while the music choices fit the mood of each sequence. There is a companion CD, Shakti Rhythms,if you like what you hear, or you can consult the music credits for individual pieces.
The such possibilities for your practice, this dvd a must for your home library!
