I finally did this workout with my DH. It is OK. Not
particularly a stretch for flexibility video. More of a
relaxation, massage, trust and bonding kind of process. A
bit high on the "woo woo" scale too. We both prefer the
There is about a 5 minute warm up, 40 minute partnered
stretching and 4 minute cool down/meditation. There are
several couples, including a mom and daughter pair.
The partnered stretching consists of either pulling on
your partners arms or pushing on their back to facilitate
deeper stretches. You use eachother for leverage, balance
and extra stretching.
My DH is taller, heavier, much stronger and less flexible
than I. So he was afraid of hurting me in some of the
partnered stretches. And I was not strong enough to give
him a good stretch in some of them. This might work
better if both partners are about equal in these areas.
I do have to warn anyone interested in this video:
- Scott jokes a lot and is possibly more chatty and goofy
in this one than in Millennium Stretch.
- The set is bright red.
- If you get sweaty you won't be able to hang on to your
partner's hands or wrists. Could be a slippery situation.
- The music is ok. It starts out with some Spanish guitar.
Then some birds start chattering loudly. That may bother
- The beginning warm-up consists of eye contact
mirroring exercises that are reminiscent of "Acting
101" classes. It seems to go on for a LONG time. Could be
uncomfortable if your partner is shy or repressed.
- The closing "tree meditation" is exceptionally goofy. I
recommend keeping your eyes shut the whole time. (Or
else you will end up with the "laughing meditation"
Scott is goofy. Handsome, but goofy. I think the jokes
would get really tired after more than a few viewings.
One could always use the mute button after learning the
routine. And play some nice music like the "Ateeka Yoga"
