helpful for pain associated with tight muscles
I got the Yoga for Stress Relief DVD as part of my search for gental yoga DVDs. As there weren't many options, I figured a yoga DVD on stress relief will focus using the same approach as gental yoga. It works well since stress relief yoga and gentle yoga both help pain and strain due to tight muscles, such as neck, shoulders, hips, etc.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

With someone with chronic upper and lower back problems, the poses definitely provided relief. I also liked how the menu offers a variety of choices, with short and long sessions as well as passive and active poses. It's helpful since you can choose what you need, depending on you're feeling physcially that day. The sessions also emphasize meditative breathing to the poses, which is a fantastic reminder when you're in a pose to help relax into it further.
The only thing that could be better is the camera stays in one position the whole time and doesn't show different angles of the poses, which can be a problem if it's a new pose for you and you want to make sure you're doing it correctly. The other problem was that changes between poses don't allow for time for the viewer to make the changes. For example, they show one pose with sitting, and then they cut to the next pose with the person already standing or lying down. So you have to pause the DVD and change your pose. Something you don't want to worry about when you're trying to relax and be present with your practice.
All in all, it's one of the better DVDs I've tried.
