The waters part and the energy flows slowly throughout the sand. The earth is open to those who come to pay
homage to the land. Rejoice! Come alive, live and discover all the universe is offering. Breath in the air as
it fills your lungs and helps oneness be discovered.
Yoga is the state of being where the body finds unification. There are many forms of yoga that are practiced.
Each one holds its own special blend of culture elegance. The Sun Salutation is a tribute to this age-old
practice. It involves a series of refined movements and mediations that allows the body to absorb the cosmic
energy into its system.
Sun Salutations: Awakening the Flow is one of the most breathtaking DVDs I have yet to discover. From
the beginning, the introductory music set the tempo in a slow and steady rhythm. I could almost feel my breath
begin to match the pace as it guided to me to the various sections the DVD featured.
The type of yoga shown on this DVD is Vinyasa Flow Yoga. It is defined as an evolving form of traditional
hatha yoga which focuses on integrating breath and movement, awareness and alignment. Shiva Rea is the guide who
will travel with you throughout this entire series. Having discovered yoga at the age of fourteen she has devoted
years to mastering the craft.
Sun Salutations: Awakening the Flow is broken out into five different sections. The first concentrates
on the classic sun salutation that all can easily enjoy. The second features Surya Namaskar, which revolves around
building flexibility and strength. For the sections devoted to Dance Warrior 1-4, it provides the ultimate experience
to help open the hips and spine. The lunar flow section is geared towards rejuvenating the body and soul. The
perfect ending is provided by a soothing Shavasana session which places the body in a state of total relaxation
where peace and serenity will be present.
Those who practice yoga should definitely add anything Shiva Rea creates to your collection. She is the radiant
light that shines as a source of inspiration to all who view her work. With each move that she introduces, you
will feel your spiritual oneness take shape and soar to new heights.
Namaste - May peace, love, and happiness feel your grace.
