Sadie's fun, creative poses and flowing sequences keeps you engaged while you activate deep core muscle meridians inside and out for more power, weight loss, calorie burn, strength and safe flexibility! Filmed live in Sedona (no voice-overs), you'll experience a vibrant, wild setting while Sadie leads you through poses built from the ground up, so all levels can experience total body transformation in just one session. If you're looking for an exciting yoga style that helps amplify your metabolism, calorie-burning and body-sculpting while giving you the de-stressing, centering benefits of a moving meditation--this real world teacher, named one of the best in America, is for you!
This DVD is set up with a "matrix" menu, i.e. there are 8 individual segments that you can play from start to finish or pick and choose based on time and mood. The segments are:
01 - Warm-up (12 minutes)
02 - Core Salutations (14 minutes)
03 - Warrior Sequence 1 (14 minutes)
04 - Warrior Sequence 2 (12 minutes)
05 - Balancing Sequence (11 minutes)
06 - Deeper Core Strength (7 minutes)
07 - Floor Stretch (12 minutes)
08 - Inversions/Counterposes (12 minutes)
The Good: Filmed in Sedona, the scenery is gorgeous. Sadie's flows are really creative; you won't feel like you're just repeating the same set of sun salutations a million times. Sadie's cueing is very clear and I rarely had to look up at the screen to figure out what the next pose was.
The Bad: Sadie talks. Alot. I tend to like a verbose instructor, but even I felt that some of the chat kept me from sinking deeply into my practice and I didn't feel nearly as relaxed at the end as I usually do. Sadie uses a lot of lingo that (I think) she developed ("heavy metal golden egg" for example) and I sometimes found myself distracted trying to figure out what the heck she was talking about. That being said, she gave a lot of good tips on getting the most out of poses.
There is also no cool down segment and I really missed that. If you want to end your practice with Savasana (corpse pose) you'll either need to do the Inversion segment (includes headstand and wheel) or you'll need to add it on your own.
Bottom Line: This is a unique flow yoga DVD. Sadie is chatty, but has a cool perspective to share. I wouldn't recommend this for pure beginners, however if you have some yoga experience under your belt there will be something for you in this DVD. I'm hoping that if I stick with this I may just be able to figure out crow pose one of these days!
I'm writing this review from just one encounter with this DVD. I did not have the time or energy for the full 90 minutes but only omitted 2 sections for my first go round.
Warm-up (12 minutes)
Core Salutations (14 minutes)
Warrior Sequence 1 (14 minutes)
Deeper Core Strength (7 minutes)
Floor Stretch (12 minutes)
Inversions/Counterposes (12 minutes)
I am saving these sections for another yoga day
Warrior Sequence 2 (12 minutes)
Balancing Sequence (11 minutes)
I want to counter the reviewers who say that Sadie is too chatty. She's not "chatting", she's *instructing* and continually encourages you to break out of the comfort zone of familiar patterns that may not be serving you or allowing you to be more than you are and I don't think that is "chatty". The very detailed instruction, which is coming into your brain via both right brained imagery and left brained linear detail is fabulous. I find myself able to access my psoas muscles and the rest of my deep core in much more confident ways from following her instruction. This DVD, like the 37 minute Core/Belly DVD (also filmed in Sedona) feel like yoga physical therapy to me, giving me time and space to move and consider in new ways how I use my body.
I'm 50 years old and very fit, but after so many years of using muscle groups in certain ways, I do believe (as a Feldenkrais patient) that messages from the brain to the muscle groups do get corrupted and can, with re-teaching, create new neural pathways to healthier and pain-free ways of moving and living in one's body. This new Sadie Nardini yoga DVD, I believe, is a great asset to accomplish this.
And for the record: The most vigorous yoga I do burns about 300 calories in an hour and this would include very active sections from Shiva Rea Fluid Power and Shiva's Agni Fire flow which includes 108 (9 sets of 12) pushups. I burned 280 calories today in 70 minutes of Sadie Nardini yoga. I don't think that's too shabby.
At the end of my practice, as I lay in Shavasana, I felt my qi moving throughout my body, buzzing and humming. I feel well worked, peaceful and strong. And those are several of the main reasons I have a yoga practice. I highly recommend this DVD and it *will* become a part of my regular rotation.
