Yoga for Beginners
for the yoga novice, Shiva
Rea Yoga for Beginners is an easy-to-
follow DVD that can help you to increase
your flexibility and to improve your
fitness as well as encouraging general
relaxation and well-being...
WITH MORE THAN TEN YEARS' TEACHING EXPERIENCE, internationally-renowned
and acclaimed instructor Shiva Rea goes back to basics for newcomers to Yoga.
A leader in the field of Prana Vinyasa Flow Yoga™ and Yoga Trance Dance™ worldwide,
Shiva Rea began exploring Yoga when she was fourteen in order that she should
understand the name given to her by her father, a surfer and an artist.
Flow is a natural state of Yoga that we've known since birth and Shiva Rea demonstrates
various positions, giving a running commentary: Foundation Flow; Beginner's
Backbend Flow; Relaxing Flexibility Flow; Beginner's Standing Pose Flow; and
Shavasana (deep relaxation).
Shiva doesn't demonstrate the full range of her flexibility because her target
audience is beginners. She cautions against pushing yourself too hard
every movement should be slow, smooth and fluid. Shiva Rea has a clear, soothing
voice and is meticulous with her explanations of how a position should be done
and why. Some of the accompanying music/chants are a bit intrusive; but others
bring a feeling of calm.
The aim is whole body integration and when you watch her demonstrating on the
forgiving sand on the beautiful island of Kauai, Hawaii, next to a tranquil
blue sea, you understand what she means.
Create the right atmosphere and use a yoga mat and end, as Shiva Rea does, with
Shavasana the deep relaxation that gives you the peace and healing of
Following in the success of her previous yoga DVDs, Shiva Rea Yoga for Beginners
is an ideal DVD for those wishing to learn the basics and alleviate the stresses
and strains of everyday life.
Shiva's DVD, Shiva Rea Yoga for Beginners,
will be released on 19 May (2008), courtesy of Acacia at an RRP of £14.99.
