ANYONE WHO IS FAMILIAR WITH SHIVA REA DVDs will know what to expect from this amazing and world-renowned yoga guru. Following on from the success of Creative Core Abs and Creative Core + Lower Body, Shiva has added another DVD to her core yoga programme and this time she focuses on the upper body to ease you gently into a programme with which you can be confident.

Shiva Rea Creative Core + Upper Body works on total body strength, flexibility and stamina. Shiva shows you the way to harness your sacred strength and activate your full potential. It is an innovative and exciting alternative to repetitive crunching and weightlifting.

Taking care while using this programme is of primary concern. Along with the cautions that always accompany Acacia's fitness DVDs, Shiva emphasises the need to go at your own pace and not to push yourself beyond your body's capabilities — leave the challenges until you are more experienced.

Even the busiest of yoga fans can see incredible results as this flowing yoga practice tones the core back, arms and shoulders. Shiva works her way through 25 minutes of Agni Namaskar, 8 minutes for Creative Core and a relaxing wind-down with two minutes of Shavasana (deep relaxation).

Shiva offers excellent advice and her full explanations of each section make it easy to follow her programme — although novices should not expect to get all the body positions right first time! It takes practice. Using your own body rhythm, Shiva takes you through nine sets of twelve push-ups, encouraging total relaxation, controlled breathing and commitment to your inner fire. By using this programme you will achieve full core alignment both externally and internally.

Shiva Rea's expert tuition and attention to detail will help you to achieve your goal by following the practical instructions and taking care to only work within your fitness level boundaries.

As you end the programme with Shavasana (deep relaxation), your body connects with the Earth and you feel relaxed and at peace. Filmed at Limahuli Garden on location on Kauai, Hawaii, Shiva Rea Creative Core + Upper Body is a lovely, calming way to bring your body and mind into perfect balance.

The presenter and instructor for Creative Core + Upper Body is Shiva Rea; Director is James Wvinner; Producer is Paul Eckstein; Director of Photography is Sion Michel; Music is by Shaman's Dream Music (shamansdreammusic.com), Carlos Torres, Daphne Tse and Matt Pazonak.

Shiva Rea Creative Core + Upper Body is available on DVD now, priced at 9.99.
