I hadn't done yoga in years. I bought this because of issues I was having with a tight lower back and an achey hip. I've been doing this dvd every other day and I'm already noticing increased mobility in my hip and total relaxation throughout the day! The tone of this is absolutely peaceful and it is a perfect beginners yoga dvd.
I am very impressed with the ELEMENT DVD series on yoga-and this is an exhilarating sequence of poses that will de-stress as well as challenge your flexibility. There are 2 chapter options: Stress Relief for 37 minutes. Instructor Ashley Turner will demonstrate where and how to modify some poses. There are sitting poses with twists, hip stretches and foward bends. Flexibility poses for 35 minutes such as the Eagle, half splits, spinal twists. What I like best is when Ashley will begin with modifications and then onto the full positions. Her voice is slow, gentle and gives excellent, clear directions that I can follow her voice as I move into the poses. This DVD is highly recommended for all yoga levels-it's one of the most enjoyable and beneficial sequences I've experienced!
