Shanti Generation – Yoga Skills for Youth Peacemakers – Review

Not only is this an excellent yoga dvd for teen yoga students, this is excellent for anyone new to yoga, who wants great demonstration of the poses, excellent verbal cuing of the “getting into the poses”, and good information on protecting your body, keep it from harm when doing poses (which is essential, and missing from a LOT of yoga dvds these days).

Some of the features of this DVD, I found to be very unique.

  1. In the section labeled Library of Poses, you can choose three different sets of poses to do.  A Focus, Energy & Calm section.  Poses to enhance those different types of yoga energy.  I like how the poses in the Focus section had a yellow green background, and in the Energy section a beautiful sun like orange-yellow background, and in the Calm section a cool blue background.  Very appropriate for each set of poses that you go through.
  2. Choose your Path section of the DVD, are 5 vinyettes of yoga poses, approximately 30 minutes in length.  The different paths are: Creating Happiness, Energy Amplified, Choosing Peace, Being Sound and Voice Choice Possibilities.  As is says on the DVD cover, 5 unique half-hour practice sequences integrating breathing exercises, poses for strength, flexibility and balance, relaxation poses and meditation.
  3. Breathing Room section of the DVD, has 5 different breathing exercises that one can practice.
  4. The Self Connection room  has two wonderful mindful relaxation and awareness practices also!

Abby Wills, does a wonderful job introducing each section, and there is a fun section where there are little mini interviews with the teens who are doing the yoga demonstrations.

Excellent all around!
