Yoga: Gentle Practice


By Richard Rosen  |  

Yoga: Gentle Practice, with Zyrka Landwijt. Real Bodywork; realbodywork.com

Zyrka Landwijt was trained by Parvathi Nanda Nath Saraswati of the Bhairavi Maha Yoga tradition. Landwijt is the perfect model for these sequences; her movements are economical and never hurried, her voice clear and soothing. This DVD consists of two general series, each beginning with a foundational 30-minute routine. A second and third sequence add a few more passive poses to the first.

Most of the poses are done sitting, kneeling, or reclining, prone, or supine. There’s also a pose guide that supplies hints on how to better perform 23 of the poses found in these six gentle sequences.
