Having tried over the years to start a yoga practice at home, I never thought that I would "get into" another yoga video. But, this one is a surprise. I greatly enjoyed the "real world" introductory session in which Ira challenges listeners to question their individual states of being; he seems genuinely interested in helping folks find a change in perspective, which, in my view, truly begins any journey towards healing. The choice of a waterside nature setting, both before and after the actual teaching, was especially calming to my spirit. The studio setting was a pleasant space, except for the unnecessary placement of some background equipment which distracted me at times from the student's MOST graceful and perfected, uh, form (I am sure that some appropriate Sanskrit word would apply). What an inspiration I found her to be! Her precision in practice was easily matched by Ira's masterful command of the instruction. After the first viewing, I had the sense that his teaching style was so far above any typical yoga class endured "at the gym." Ira's delivery evidences the committed effort of a devoted and studied practitioner of an ancient tradition. And, other than wanting the camera to move at times toward the steady voice of the teacher, I was pleased with the editing between and among the various spaces presented. Overall, I feel that this is a very personal offering by a serious professional intending to benefit any potential viewers.
