HOW WONDERFUL IT WOULD BE for seekers of life improvement to be able to access their life energy in a creative, dynamic way so that they can live the life that is their full potential — and that is what Shiva Rea aims to achieve with her fantastic DVD, Shiva Rea Creative Core + Lower Body.

A strong core means more than flat abs. In her introduction she also tells you how you can to tone your body so that you play the music inside you, but with excellence. The Creative Roots section of the DVD explains how you can tone up, strengthen and increase your flexibility and endurance while calming the spirit and soothing the mind.

Demonstrating a creative way to strengthen one's core without tedious 'ab' exercises, Shiva focuses on both the core and the lower body, using graceful yoga-based movements that will help tone the body, stimulate a healthy heart and ignite your inner fire.

Flowing gracefully from one pose to another, the exercises help strengthen the belly, hips, thighs and lower back, filling you with vital energy. Grounded, while remaining quick, light-hearted and effective; this core programme should fast become everyone's favourite way to work out.

Following the success of her previous yoga DVDs, this is a brilliant workout for anyone wishing to improve their torso, abs and core while invigorating themselves and their life with the empowering spirit of yoga.

Amid the beautiful, peaceful surroundings of Limahuli Garden on Kauai, Hawaii, that is so conducive to relaxation, Shiva Rea uses yoga positions and controlled breathing to demonstrate how you can help improve not only your body but also your mind.

These movements will help you to create a powerful strengthening of the lower body and lower back — Shiva is very meticulous with her descriptions of the positions and works towards "feeling the flow". She explains how to relieve stress on the body, urging you not to progress until you have followed and mastered the first phase and feel steady. You should, Shiva says, "feel yourself grounded and flowing with vital energy" and if you need to adjust your body for comfort, you should do so.

As usual, Shiva ends her programme with Shavasana — a deep relaxation where you can feel the circulation of your life energy and allow your mind to rest in your heart. The delightful music on the DVD is from a range of music from Shaman's Dream, Carlos Torres and Daphney Tao and Matt Pazonak.

The makers of the DVD are not providing medical guidance so issue an importance notice drawing your attention to the following advice: Due to the differences in individual physical condition, you should consult a doctor before starting any fitness programme. If you experience pain or discomfort during any exercise routine, you should consult a doctor immediately. And that said, with care and consideration for your body, the benefits to your body and your well-being could be enormous.

The fantastic Shiva Rea Creative Core + Lower Body DVD will be released on 15 September (2008), courtesy of Acacia, with a RRP of £14.99.
