I discovered Tara Stiles's work only recently via her YouTube channel, when looking for gentle (but still effective!) exercise routines that would help me get back in shape after delivering my first baby.
I was immediately captivated by Tara's fluid sense of movement, making all the poses and transitions between them look so elegant and easy.
I decided to get this DVD series to dive more into her yoga style (called Strala yoga) and I haven't regretted it! Two months after giving birth, one could hardly tell I was still heavily pregnant 9 weeks ago, and I started my daily practice only 6 weeks after delivering my baby.
Practicing Strala helps me relax in my body, and is happily contributing to tone my muscles head to toe.
Plus, the yoga encyclopedia (4th DVD) provides a nice reference manual if you are looking to improve any of your poses.
As other reviewers have already mentioned, the daily routine on DVD 3 is not 15 min (as stated on the back cover), but 30 min. Although this is the case, there is a point mid-routine where Tara brings you down sitting on your knees for a mindful breather. It's easy to stop your practice at this point if you're short in time.
All in all, great for both beginners and advanced yogis/yoginis looking to get back in shape after an injury, pregnancy or extended vacation from their yoga practice. Highly recommend it!
