This is a 2 CD home practice yoga. It is approximately 90 minutes. I have lots of yoga CD's and videos, but this is the one that I reach for most often and I have been doing it for about 4 months. The style of yoga is vinyasa flow. The poses are as follows:
shoulder openers; 4 sun salutation A; standing balance poses; 4 sun salutations B; standing pose flow, right with simple backbends; standing pose flow left with wheel, bridge and upward bow; crow pose. 2nd CD - headstand, seated forward bends, plow, shoulderstand, abs and savasana.
The CD's move at a good pace. I am drenched in sweat by the time I get to the forward bends. There is no music on the CD which is great. I also have The Yogi's Companion CD and found the music to be instrusive. This CD is appropriate for advanced beginners to advanced students. There is no chart so you must know what the asanas look like. When I am in New York, I am going to make a point of going to Elena's yoga studio. That's how much I like this CD. You can get it at virayoga.com Thanks Elena!!!
Wonderful instructor who actually makes you feel like you are in a class. She knows when to be silent and when to speak. She doesn't have to fill every space with the sound of her voice.
