= Yoga in Jamaica
Reviewer: The Rebecca Review.com
Alan Finger is a true Yoga Master and this workout is
perhaps one of the best yoga workouts out there for flexibility
and stress release. Alan takes you from tense shoulders and
emotional stress to a state where you literally feel like you
are floating in total bliss.
The workout is outside in a beautiful natural location. Alan
acts more like an instructor, focusing on the specifics while
you really focus on what he is saying. I did eventually put a
mirror in a location so I could see the TV while I was upside
down. I laugh, but when you are looking down and your TV is way
up on the wall, it can be difficult to follow along with a
workout. Once you have done this workout a few times, you can
put the mirror away, close your eyes and just listen to the
instruction. Which is excellent and the best I’ve ever found
in a yoga workout.
Even when Alan is not actually doing the exercises, his wife
and another instructor are showing you all the variations and
advanced moves. There are two VERY advanced moves on this video
that I would not recommend even to intermediate students of
yoga. You will need a lot of strength in your arms to balance in
two of the exercises.
The first time you watch this video, you might not be able to
do the exercises to their completion. Fear not. Do the video at
least three times and you will be amazed at how fast you
progress. Moving table was difficult at first, but by the third
time, I could actually almost do this move.
If you are looking for strength, flexibility and relaxation,
this workout will completely calm your nervous system and clear
your mind. There is an interesting “chakra moment” at the
end while you are flat on your back. You visualize colors and
move relaxation from your toes to the top of your head. It was
very interesting and healing.
You really do many of the yoga postures you are already
familiar with, but with this video, the instruction is so
superior, you move into new levels of stretching and
flexibility. Even while doing downward-facing dog, I learned new
ways to do the posture more correctly. There are some
interesting sequences I’d never tried before.
The movements are well organized, fluid and move in perfect
timing from one to the other. When you want to rest, you rest,
when you feel you want to be challenged, you are challenged. The
breathing instruction is also excellent and as your body flows
with the breath, you literally feel empowered.
Upon completion of this video, you might feel freedom from
emotional turmoil, have no discernable desires you can
recognize, feel happy and want to do this video again!
This is a true Yoga escape! It does everything yoga is
supposed to do. For days afterwards I felt focused, creative and
happy for no reason. I handled emotional conflicts much more
effectively and while I let other things go in my life so I
could do this workout, it was so worth the utter feeling of
peace I felt at the end.
In my TOP TEN of Yoga workouts.
I look forward to trying the four workout set called Yoga
Zone Premiere Collection and anything by Yoga Zone or Alan
Finger. His voice is so calming and he has a cute accent. He
also has a great sense of humor and even made me laugh a few
