Christina Pedersen offers you a unique and complete yoga practice designed to strengthen, tone and detoxify the body while reconnecting with your breath and calming your mind. Christina is a Kripalu certified yoga instructor who has been practicing yoga since 1996. She is strongly influenced by the Iyengar, Ashtanga and Kripalu traditions and has interwoven aspects of these into this Vinyasa Flow practice. Christina believes that finding and maintaining a deep, full breath is the secret in attaining a fulfilling yoga practice and a truly peaceful state of being.

This Vinyasa Flow Yoga DVD is ideal for those seeking an invigorating home yoga practice. The practice begins with deep breathing and centering, followed by warm-up stretches and the asana series. Christina concludes with a restorative, relaxing guided meditation and Savasana. The unique combination of pranyama (breathing), asana (physical postures) and relaxation will leave you feeling calm, yet energized.

"I hope that this yoga DVD will add an exciting dimension to your home yoga practice. It is an offering of yoga from my heart to yours, and may it be one small piece of your self-discovery puzzle... Namaste!" ~ Christina Pedersen, RYT., San Diego Ca., Feb, 2008

This is one of many yoga DVDs at MyYogaVideo.com that have multiple sound tracks. You can choose between two instructional styles, detailed or asana timing only, and you can choose your music from several beautiful tracks.

5.0 out of 5 starsAn Excellent Yoga Practice DVD , April 12, 2008

By  Jennifer Harris (Rhode Island) -
This video is ideal for anyone who wants to practice yoga at their own pace - - in their own space. What's really cool is that you can choose to have Chrissy's groovy soothing voice lead you into all poses each time you watch it, or you can change the background and music to just have timed-poses with no instruction. This makes a huge difference when you are watching this over and over again.

The way this video combines a gentle Kripalu approach with a flowing Vinyasa style really helps to individualize a workout, energization level and sense of being each time you watch it. Practice yoga with this and you'll find your flow!

 

5.0 out of 5 starsPeaceful yet challenging , August 7, 2008

By  M. C. Simonetti (Windsor, Ontario Canada) -
This is one of my favourite yoga DVDs because it offers enough challenges through a flow that also encourages the practitioner to turn his or her spirit inward. Pedersen's voice is firm yet soft, and this perhaps best describes her routine, which also distinguishes itself in the two following ways. First, she begins the DVD with a warmup flow that is not a sun salutation. This is a nice variation from other routines. Second, although most poses are traditional, a few stray from the beaten path and thus provide a fresh approach to one's practice. Finally, the cinematography underscores the stunning beauty of the beach backdrop.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga Beginner - Intermediate : This DVD has 7 sequences. A playful and challenging Kripalu flow yoga DVD. Kripalu yoga has wave like movements that keep things flowing while you maintain classic postures and stretches. Christina has a very pleasant style that is warm, inviting and adventurous. Set on the rocks above a beautiful secluded beach. This DVD has a menu that allows you to choose a Beginners level (4 sequences) or an Intermediate level (3 sequences) with 30 to 70 minutes of yoga per sequence. (more details and video clips soon ... we are just releasing this title)

Vinyasa Flow Yoga Intermediate : ***Practice DVD***: This DVD has a simple menu that lets you choose your sound track including the music and teaching style. After you have listened to the detailed instructional sound track you switch to the asana timing sound track. This helps you get into the body through your yoga practice and out of your critical mind. This DVD also lets you choose the beautiful music that inspires you "today" ... Here are some sound track samples.

4.0 out of 5 starsGreat intermediate practice tool , August 8, 2008

By  E. Carter (Texas)
I have been practicing yoga for a while and although I still use and enjoy my beginner to intermediate videos, I needed to add a little more challenge to my practice. This Vinyasa Flow Yoga video is just about perfect for the intermediate level.

The video is broken up into asanas, any of which you can easily skip if you don't want to/don't have time to/don't feel comfortable. All you do is push the "skip/next scene" button on your DVD remote and you are immediately taken to the next asana. I really like this feature.

Also, there are three different types of music you can pick to listen to as the background for the DVD. I think this is a great feature because the music really does build, ebb, and flow in keeping with the asanas. The music helps you stay at the right energy level.

There is also an option to turn the instructor's voice off and have a timing sort of "metronome" to remind you of when to switch poses, etc. I haven't used this yet, but I'm sure I will after a while, as I start to memorize and become tired of hearing all the instructions over and over :)

In the balancing asanas, towards the end, there are some pretty advanced poses. I am one of those people who looks at the yoga girls on screen and thinks "if they can do it then I can do it!" and therefore I have definitely been challenged to perfect (or, in one case, even PERFORM) a few of the advanced poses. But I did buy this video hoping for a challenge, so I am glad there are things on the DVD that I can't already do. It gives me something to work toward. I'd say 90% of the asanas are intermediate and I had no problem with them, and then 10% are advanced and I have varying levels of difficulty with the poses.

The only real negative thing I can think of is that the DVD only has one lesson on it. Lots of yoga videos have several different lessons you can choose from (arms focus, legs focus, full body flow, etc). This DVD has ONE LESSON, and that's it. So if you're looking for a more diverse practice tool, this is probably not your best pick.

All said, I enjoy this DVD quite a bit, and am very happy that I have added it to my collection. From being able to skip through asanas and make the practice length fit with my schedule, to picking my own music, to having challenging poses to work towards, it has been a good fit all around.
