"Intermediate Yoga in Fiji is the latest offering from instructor Elise Browning Miller, whose previous yoga release was Yoga for Scoliosis. As the title suggests, this is an intermediate yoga practice which was filmed on the island of Fiji; the practice sequences feature Elise alone in a beachfront setting. This well-chaptered DVD offers a variety of options as broken down in detail below.
*Yoga Practice (Full Vinyasa Sequence, Sun Salutations, Standing Poses)
*Bonus (More Challenging Poses, Children in Fiji, Interview/Bio, Credits/Contacts)
In the Introduction and Getting Started, Elise provides an overview of the practice and offers an opening meditation. The Full Vinyasa Sequence is 50 minutes long, and although there is not a chapter menu, the practice is broken into 8 separate chapters, so you can easily skip around as needed. I have provided approximate time breakdowns as well as an overview of poses included below.
FULL VINYASA SEQUENCE
Chapter 1 (4 minutes)--lunge salutations
Chapter 2 (4 minutes)--sun salutations with jumpbacks to down dog; includes lunge, seated split, and standing split
Chapter 3 (5 minutes)--sun salutation B with Iyengar jumping to chatturanga; also includes warrior 1, side plank, and 1-legged dog pose
Chapter 4 ("
Good Practice for 1 hour

"This practice flow teaches poses from Iyengar style, which means it focus a lot on details of each poses, not like Brayan's power yoga instruction with a lot of "mental teaching" along the way you might be tired of. So everytime I listened to her instruction, I paid attention and went deeper with the poses. Not too challenging, split, side plank, crow, wheel, shoulder stand are some of the difficult poses in this series. (Except one, doing shoulder stand from supported bridge).
Some items not my favorite: 1. some poses in Sunkrit only and need you to be more familiar;2. the monkey split too earlier in the sequence; 3. Some poses start w/left,others start w/right side somehow..
Overall, it is still a great yoga video."
