~Daily Energy: Vinyasa Flow Yoga~ Review & Giveaway


I was so excited to receive Shiva Rea's Daily Energy: Vinyasa Flow Yoga from Acacia. Acacia is such a wonderful company. They have become one of the leading distributors in original and authentic yoga, fitness, and wellness DVD programming in only four years! Some of their best selling lines include Core Fusion, Shiva Rea, Hemalayaa: Bollywood Dance, Yoga to the Rescue, Step-by-Step, Weight Loss, Fit in 5, and Dance and Be Fit DVD lines and the first workout from Bethenny Frankel, Body by Bethenny. Acacia also features some amazing nature-oriented products!

I just love Shiva Rea's Daily Energy: Vinyasa Flow Yoga! I have just been doing the P90X Yoga, and that has been ok, but I don't always have the time to work it into my schedule when I would like to do yoga due to the fact that it is almost 90 minutes in length. I was so excited to be able to review this DVD by Acacia, because you can customize your yoga workouts with the Yoga Matrix! You can select from 7 different practices that are 20 minutes in length or you can choose one of the Pre-Set Practices.

One of my favorite combinations from the Yoga Matrix is:
Chakra Namaskar- 20 minutes
Forward Bends- 6 minutes
Shanti- 20 minutes
Lunar Meditation- 5 minutes
Shavasana- 5 minutes
Total minutes 56

I love to do this combination before I go to bed. It is so relaxing and really de-stresses me from a long day with the kids. Chakra Namaskar and Shanti are two of the 20 minutes practices that are a little less intense from the other practices. The other practices are a bit more intense.  Shiva also does some more difficult poses that may require a yoga strap if you are a beginner to yoga.

At first some of the poses I was not able to do, but with a little bit of time and practice I have been able to achieve some of the poses that I was not able to when I first started this DVD. I don't think that I have ever been this flexible in my entire life as I am now. My back has never felt better. When I was pregnant with my last daughter I developed severe back pain and it has taken awhile for this pain to actually go away. This has really helped me with releasing the stress that I tend to carry in my back.

This is a great combination for a great morning wake up!
Fire- 20 Minutes
Core- 7 Minutes

Fire is a fast paced calorie burning routine that really lites your fire in the morning. It is also great for an afternoon workout as well.

Overall, this is a wonderful Yoga DVD and I would totally recommend this to anyone that loves to practice yoga!

Hi,
I also commented in your Air Land Ocean about the green solar power efforts they do as a company. Love to win the dvd instead of the Double Layer Yoga Tunic (but those are *nice* too!)
