A superb introduction to one of the most beneficial and rewarding forms of yoga.

Flow yoga, also called vinyasa yoga, combines flowing movement with rhythmic breathing for a dynamic mind-body workout. Like a moving mediation, flow yoga unites mind, body, and breath. Your mind clears, your body calms, even as your pulse quickens.

Renowned and innovative flow yoga teacher Shiva Rea leads this introductory practice, filmed amid breathtaking scenery on the Hawaiian island Kauai. She begins with a seated meditation that teaches you how to link breath with movement. Three more segments introduce her flowing approach to classic poses. Transitions from pose to pose are graceful and easy. You may not have Shiva's flexibility (yet), but you can follow her lead in ways that work for you. Feel yourself becoming stronger and more supple. Sense your new energy and find the fluidity that has always been yours.

5 of 5 Great for Beginners July 9, 2014
Reviewer: Suzanne from Arlington, VA United States  
I consider myself an advanced beginner/low intermediate yogi and I found this workout enjoyable. It's really a gem. While you will work, Shiva has created a peaceful, soothing session. Love that the DVD is well-chaptered, so you can pick and choose what you want to do, depending on your time or inclination.  This is a great addition to any yogi's collection, perhaps even those more skilled (as a restorative session).

4 of 5 Shiva light... July 2, 2014
Reviewer: Jenny  
This is lighter as far as Shiva Rea's DVDs go, but I don't agree that its for beginners. It would be for someone who "gets" her style, but wants something lighter. The sections are really nice, although I'm not sure I get the order? The scenery is gorgious!!

4 of 5 Shiva Rea Flow Yoga For Beginners DVD December 17, 2011
Reviewer: Pleasantly surprised from Western Australia  
This is my first Shiva Rea DVD. At first it seemed a bit ponderous and slow, but maybe that's the point. The pace and the focus on breath encourages the mind to become quiet and work with the body, rather than rushing through. This was an ideal routine for returning to yoga after a number of years in the gym. It has taken a couple of sessions to tune in to and fully appreciate Shiva's style and instruction but it was well worth persisting.  A challenging yet calming practice, intelligently put together with thoughtful guidance. This routine hits many spots that often need attention. While all the movements do work to strengthen the abs,  I would like to have seen included  some work that specifically targets the abs. Alltogether a very good DVD that covers a range of experience and abilities. More experienced practitioners will spot the places where they can increase the challenge of the routine. A very good buy that has gone into regular rotation with other favourites.

5 of 5 Flow Yoga For Everyone May 17, 2009
Reviewer: Yoni from Israel  
I was so glad to get another new Shiva DVD less than 5 months since her last one. This DVD was filmed in Kauai , Hawaii as well as her next DVD's to be released this year and next year. This practice is aimed for beginners but everyone can enjoy it , the whole DVD is 70 minutes and has 4 segments (and savasana) that can be done seperately:1. Foundation Flow - approx 14 min, Shiva starts with some breathing exercises on a rock near a beautiful waterfall and continues with simple poses like cat , cobra and some variations.2. Beginner's Backbend Flow -approx. 20 min, there is a change of scenery and Shiva is in a beautiful garden with a lot of trees near a lake.It is actually mainly standing poses - she prepares you for backbends in this practice with some lunge variations , chair with twists ,side bends, half splits and cobra variations and finally bow and camel. This segment might be quite challenging for true beginners but she shows easier modifications for most of the poses so it's definitely doable.3.Relaxing Flexibility Flow - approx. 10 min , Shiva does simple stretches on the back , very similar to "supine poses" segment in Yoga Shakti it ends with a forward bend (badhakonasana) , it was very relaxing.4. Beginner's Standing Pose Flow - approx 23 min . now she's at the beach , the clip from [...] is taken from this segment and it is dark here too not just in the clip , it was probably shot at dusk. This is really a seperate practice cuz there is no sense of getting up for another energizing practice after the relaxing segment. It is a more challenging vinyasa that includes warrior 2 variations and some more backbends.Too bad there is no matrix , because this segment is just stuck between the previous segments and the savasana ,it would be nice to do it before or after the second segment but since there are only a few chapters I guess it's not such a big deal to skip between them with the remote.This segment also ends with a very short savasana , barely 2 minutes, which is another minor complaint but all in all I really enjoyed this practice and felt really stretched out , I can't wait for her next DVD's to come out.
