"I have bursitis in my hips. I also injured my back recently, so right at the moment I am not in the best shape. Right now the bursitis in the right hip is flaring and it hurts!
I was so excited when this arrived in the mail! I had high hopes for it! And I was not disappointed!
Here's the order in which it goes:
1. Rhythmic Breathing - relaxing breathing on your back
2. Bridge Rolls - On your back you raise the hips up and down. This is nice, flowing and slow.
3. Hip/Side Stretch - On your back, you roll to one side with the head facing up and hold for nice long time, stretching. Then you do the other side. This is done just once on each side. Nice and long and slow.
4. Leg Stretch - On your back, your leg goes up and down, then held up there for a while. She shows variations with a belt (can be done with a towel) and a foam brick for the head (can be done with a pillow). None of the variations are required, just variances.
5. Hip Rotations/Knee to Chest - On your back, you have your leg in the air and are rotating the leg around. After both legs are done you bring the knee to the chest.
6. Reclining Tree - On your back, you bend your leg at the knee and hold.
7. Spider - On your back, you bend both knees and hold your feet then rock. Your legs are open wide.
8. Cradle - On your back, one leg bent, the other bent and on top of one leg and you have your arms around legs.
9. Reclined Twist - Similar to Hip/Side Stretch. On your back your knees are bent and you twist from side to side.
10. Reclined Free Seat - On your back your legs are folded Indian Style on the ground and you hold.
11. Reclined Butterfly - Similar to Reclined Free seat only your legs are in a diamond shape and not folded.
12. Tranquility/Deep Relaxation - Deep relaxation
This DVD goes nice and slow. The poses will help you if you have any hip issues. I had a bout of bursitis and I definitely feel better after doing just one of the poses on this DVD tonight.
Someone mentioned the music. If you are familiar with yoga music (slow) you'll like this music, it flows with this dvd.
I'm going to probably buy more Kali Ray yoga dvds."
Not Your Traditional Yoga Workout

"I have been doing yoga for several years now and consider myself to be an intermediate yogi. This DVD does not contain traditional yoga moves like downward facing dog, cobra, forward bends, etc. I like to do this workout at least once a week because it is so good at relaxing the hips and lower back. I don't have to even think about what I'm doing during the hour long workout. I sort of get into a meditation phase. This workout has a definite place in my library, but is not for someone who is looking for a true yoga workout. A beginner will not learn any of the classic postures, but will enjoy the benefits."
I love doing this DVD before bed....

"This non-tradtional yoga DVD is more like a Kundalini style practice. It differs from the Kundalini DVD's that I've used in that it is very peaceful and stress relieving. On some DVD's the movement is so vigorous and strength-building that it doesn't often feel peaceful. Kali Ray's voice and instruction are so calming that, if I do this DVD or the Gentle Cardio DVD before bed, I sleep all night for at least 7 hours.
Some of the poses are held up longer to make sure you totally relax that muscle.
I keep talking about relaxing, but there are some strength building asanas (leg lifts, hip rotations, etc) but they are done slowly and calmly.
I throughly enjoyed this DVD as I have all of Kali Ray's DVD's so far."
