Feel relaxed and limber with these two gentle yoga practices
January 8, 2019
Both of the two practices on this DVD are gentle and really work on stretching out the body. They would make great rest day routines or provide one with a great stretch after a regular workout. Each 30 minute session includes both standing and floor postures. Session 1 Flexibility and Relaxation provides plenty of stretches that hit pretty much every part of the body at least a couple of times--even an often overlooked part the feet. There are plenty of unique stretches (ex. Half Frog Pose that really opens up the hips in a wonderfully relaxing way) as well as familiar poses combined in a unique way or with a bit of a different twist. Session 2 Stability and Mobility gently warms the body, building a little heat (but not sweat), so one can really maximize the benefits gained from each pose. Many unique moves (ex. half Happy Baby while stretching the inner thigh) and very different, flowing combinations (Crane, moving into forward leaning with leg behind, moving into Crescent, then Warrior 2--and back again, all while working the balance). This routine has more balance work than the first session, but also works every part of the body, again to include the feet. I really appreciate during Savasana in both routines she quietly lets the session fade, rather than saying Namaste which tends to disrupt my relaxation. Highly recommend this DVD if you are looking for a great stretch for your entire body that will leaving you feel calm and limber.
