Product Description

Product Description

International yoga teacher Shiva Rea introduces you to this free form, high-energy movement meditation. 15 guided sequences can be mixed and matched to meet time and energy levels on any given day. Includes a 12-page programme guide and mini-documentary with Shiva Rea.

From Amazon.co.uk

Released some two years after 2004's Yoga Shakti, one of the finest yoga programs on the market, Shiva Rea's Yoga Trance Dance is substantially different in content but every bit the former's equal in terms of style and presentation. Combining what she calls "two of the oldest ways (to get) back home," Rea has mixed dance and yoga to create "a contemporary exploration of conscious movement meditation," with an eye toward healing the split between body and mind that has, she says, led many of us to live primarily "from the neck up." As was the case with Yoga Shakti, several pre-set practices are offered (six in this case, ranging from 29 to 41 minutes in length); and the DVD again features the innovative "Yoga Matrix," which allows users to customize their practice by choosing and organizing various segments to suit their own needs and moods. Yet because of the dance element, most comparisons to a traditional yoga program don't apply. Whereas vinyasa yoga is essentially a series of flowing, connected poses, incorporating breath and movement and cultivating heat, strength, flexibility, and balance, here the movement is within the poses themselves, not just within the overall sequence. Thus familiar asanas such as the cobra and downward facing dog take on a new aspect, with users encouraged to constantly roll their shoulders from side to side in cobra or make undulating, wave-like spinal movements in down dog (both can be found in the terrific jala namaskar, the so-called "water salutation"); it's a style that may be somewhat more familiar to practitioners of kundalini yoga than those used to the more widespread, Iyengar-based hatha tradition. Meanwhile, the trance dance sections encourage spontaneous, free-form movement that may well lead to the kind of creative self-expression and loosening of inhibitions that Rea prescribes. Visually stunning (it was shot in high definition at New Mexico's White Sands National Monument) and augmented by a fine world music soundtrack (a music-only option is available) and Rea's soothing, authoritative presence, the DVD also includes a mini-documentary about the instructor, bonus comments by a couple of experts, and more. --Sam Graham --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

I wasn't sure about buying this DVD because of the dance part but after I saw the previews on the web I pre-ordered it right away, it just looked too good. Everything about this DVD is stunning : the music , the cinematography ,the location (white sands), Shiva's Instruction and much more.

If you like the prana yoga segment on "Yoga Shakti" then you will probably like this too because except the free form dance segments there are also prana yoga segments which are absolutely fun and creative, she makes traditional yoga poses more dancey and fluid so you never really hold a pose ,you move through it , so it's good for the days you don't feel like holding poses or do a rigid yoga practice.Even though I don't usually feel comfortable dancing in front of the TV (or at all) ,Shiva has a way of just grabbing you into it plus the amazing music gets you in the mood.The DVD has 6 preprogrammed practices ranging from 29 minutes to 41 minutes being the longest , most of the practices are mixes of free form dance, prana yoga and movement meditation but there's also a "prana yoga only" practice and a "trance dance only" practice.The "Yoga Matrix" lets you choose from 15 segments that you can play the order you want.

If you want a different way of practicing yoga , this is it!

I can't wait for her next DVD's to be released.

I own most of Shiva Rea's cd's and dvd's and have to say I love this one. Its a bit different as its very much a yoga dvd but with a difference... its freeform. You have a choice of doing prana yoga or trance dance or combine them. I never get board using this DVD and come away at the end feeling enlightened and so happy. You do have to be uninhibited... I always check to see if the hubby is around cause I would feel silly if he caught me dancing like a maniac around the living room ;-) but close your eyes throw back your head and go for it. Music is great, dvd looks amazing and if your in the mood to get more from your mat its the way to go.... Its fantastic!

If you have not experienced free form dance before, a treat awaits you. I have previously experienced Gabriel Roth's Five Rhythms and also Osho Mediations, which also involve complete free form dance, but within different themes in different sections of the dance routine. Liberating the body beyond "normal" restriction, this type of dance will take you where no other dance can, a space to learn, find and follow your own unique and natural rhythm, which allows for a free form creative release that is unsurpassed. The meditations in Trance Dance are not what you might expect from a meditation...you will not be sat cross legged and repeating mantras! This form of meditation is an active meditation, a term I first heard during the Osho Meditations. As Shiva Rea states:- "The dance is to dissolve habits and conditioning".

Yoga Trance commences with a brief introduction, followed by:-
The Yoga Matrix:-
The unique "Yoga Matrix" allows you to select components of practice, to form an custom overall practice of Trance Dance according to your available time, how you are feeling, and personal preferences:-

Beginners Level:- Movement Meditation is Body Blessing - 7 mins, Prana Yoga is Prana Yoga for the Spine - 9 mins, Kriyas & Namaskars - Twisting Kriya - 7 mins, Free-Form Dance - Damaru - Rhythmic Movement Meditation - 5 mins, Cooling Down - Prana Yoga Slow Wave - 11 mins, Closing Meditation - Shavasana - Deep Relaxation - 5 mins.

Solar:- Movement Meditation - Agni:- Fire meditation - 3 mins, Prana Yoga - Prana Yoga - Liberating Hips - 6 mins, Kriyas & Namaskars - Tandava Kriya - 5 mins, Free-Form Dance - Liberation Dance - 6 mins.

for those conventional 'yogis' or complete newcomers this dvd might seem a bit 'way out' & "not traditional yoga", but yoga should be about encouraging the body to move in a free expressive way to raise your inherent energy. it can feel a bit intimidating at first & you may feel a bit foolish, but let go of any inhibitions & free your spirit!! if you get the chance to attend any of her yoga trance dance events, go along!its like a yogic rave but everyones on a natural high!

The video is bright and colourful, exotic locations of beautiful people doing trance dance yoga. It is fun but also can be a little too heavy on the ethereal use of language.

The Dance Matrix is useful and fun to use but as a teacher of yoga I would be concerned for people with back problems in some of the spinal movements of the prana yoga section and it definitely is not for all levels as some of the asana is very strong and athletic.

Generally lively, fun and if you like dance you will enjoy this DVD - but it would be nice to see real people and not just the beautiful people dancing and practising yoga!

Acacia is not doing Shiva Rae any favours by duplicating the DVDs at low quality. On my computer screen, this DVD looks like a web size version: pixillated and unclear. It defeats the whole purpose of buying the dvd is the edges are all blurred and unclear. Shiva Rae, they are spoiling your name. Most disappointing quality. Will not be using it and have wasted my money.
