Disappointing - very poor 'flow' - AND a bit of cheek saying there is a lot of original material!
on 9 January 2009
I think that this DVD is actually quite disappointing. The yoga is fine but does not flow very well. I completed the first (70 minute) practice several times, but always felt it was a bit disjointed and didn't flow very well, after each pose or two it stopped and said on a screen the name of the next pose or sequence. This stop/ start is quite irritating.
And then yesterday I realised WHY it stops and starts so much. I thought I would try the 40 minute 'restorative yoga' in the evening. It turns out just to be a cut and paste from the 70 minute practice. Same with the 'breathing' and 'relaxation' section. I thought I would have a look at the 'ailments' section - yes, just more cut and paste from the first 70 minute practice. I haven't looked but am sure that the 'preparation for labour' section is the same - just some of the same film of the 70 minute section.
I also have Shiva Rea's Prenatal Yoga DVD and the flow of that is MUCH better, it has only three sections, warm-up, standing poses and floor work, and you move in a FLOW between postures and feel much more restored and energised afterwards as opposed to Tara Lee's very disappointing stop/ start approach.
