Background

I have never really done much in the way of yoga before and just decided one day to give it ago. I was drawn to kundalini yoga for some reason and I'm about to explain why. I've been doing the first DVD of this 3 DVD set for just over a week now and I'm feeling great. Prior to starting this set I was doing Maya's detox and destress DVD every day for three weeks and decided to expand my collection as I was so impressed.

DVD 1 - Courage

Before I go any further I would like to issue a slight warning with this DVD, the second day I started the DVD which focuses on the base chakra, I experienced terrible abdoninal pains. This turned out to be trapped wind! I feel my body basically went into turbo elimination mode which I wasn't physically quite ready for. I had to take two days off after to recover but missed the yoga so much I got straight back in as soon as I could. If you are looking for a yoga DVD that will improve your digestive system and unblock you so to speak, then this is the DVD for you!

I will be starting the second DVD in the set on Saturday so will report back after a couple of weeks using that daily. So far, I feel great despite the initial hiccup on day two which I intuitively felt was just my body's reaction to releasing the old energy etc! Just to be fair Maya does talk about how the yoga will effect your system but somehow I didn't really believe it would have such an effect on me.

DVD 2 - Creativity

I have just finished doing this DVD after 2 weeks and personally I found it the toughest workout so far. I honestly felt like giving up after day one as I found it really challenging. Thankfully I didn't give in and now I have got to the point where I would almost go so far as to say I find it easy!

Format: DVD
This is a journey through the base chakras and each one is set in 3 segments - warm up, kriyas (main physical practice) and meditation/mantra. Kundalini Yoga is a good way to de-stress and leaves you feeling energised but calm at the same time. In a world of lycra clad instructors telling you to "go for the burn" and exotic locations sponsored by major conglomerates, this is a refreshing change. Indeed, these programmes are blissfully humble and lack vanity, in that Maya tells us to keep our eyes closed for the most part (to experience your inner world) and is set in a white room. Maya prompts you through the positioning intermittently. The kryias are either repetitive motions or fixed postures (and some are deceptively challenging). Breathing is also highlighted (including detoxifying breaths like the Breath of Fire) and is a good introduction to mantras and chants if you are new to these. One to try and enjoy.

Critics have, however, complained that a certain level of flexibility is required to do the kriyas and some of the fixed positions (e.g. the meditation/mantra section of the Root Chakra - the first one of the three, requires you to sit with legs spread apart throughout, which may be difficult for some). Rather than jump on the Health and Safety bandwagon, however, use common sense. Take breaks intermittently and only go as far as you can. If you cannot touch your toes in a seated position, then touch your ankles, shins or knees instead. Remember, yoga is supposed to be non-competitive. The problems sometimes faced by budding yogis is that it is difficult to get out of the Westernised competitive train of thought often applied to other types of exercise. Also remember that teachers who demonstrate, such as Maya Fiennes, have been doing yoga for many years, so DON'T BEAT YOURSELF UP and certainly avoid comparison, or you will just end up bitter. The range in yoga is endless, so you never really "get there".

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I'm really chuffed with this DVD simply because it does everything that it claims. I can't believe that I haven't stumbled upon Kundalini yoga before. I've flirted with Astanga and have been doggedly faithful to Hatha for some years but now I have to say I'm a Kundalini convert. Maya Fiennes approach to Kundalini is a down-to-earth approach and, as such, it is both accessible and credible enough to engage the more sceptical amoung us.

Firstly, the DVD is shot in a studio against a white background. No distractions: just Maya and the Kriyas to concentrate on. Those who are familiar with Hatha yoga will be used to holding a pose for a set amount of time and 'breathing into it': Kundalini differs, insofar as for a lot of the Kriyas (poses, postures, asanas)you are in a set position but the are active throughout the pose (this is the meditation aspect). In fact, some of the Kriyas are quite vigourous and require a high level of dexterity and suppleness. However, as with any yoga discipline, it is not meant to be competitive and you work at your own pace. Maya does not offer alternatives or modifications to the Kriyas, so employing common sense and working within the parameters of your own limitations are crucial.

The format for each lesson (this is a box set that contains 3 DVDS/lessons)is pretty similar: Firstly, you have a warm up/limbering period for 15-20 minutes. Then, you perform the Kriyas for 20 mins. Finally, you have the meditation section followed by a cool down/tuning out for a few minutes.

DVD 1: Courage (Root Chakra)

Similar warm-up to the 'Detox and De-stress DVD'. The Kriyas are fairly easy to perform but you have to sustain them over several minutes (therein lies the challenge).
