Element: Hatha & Flow Yoga for Beginners

Hatha & Yoga Flow is another Element workout led by Tamal Dodge. It contains two approximately 30 minute yoga workouts. In the intro Tamal shares that he was a co-founder of The Yoga Collective, which I thought was very interesting since I have been subscribing to The Yoga Collective for over a year now and … Continue reading Element: Hatha & Flow Yoga for Beginners


Element: Yoga for Energy & Relaxation

I am a big fan of Ashley Turner's Element yoga workouts. A blog reader recommended Tamal Dodge's Element yoga workouts, saying they were even better than Ashley's. So I looked them over and stuck two of Tamal's Element DVDs on my Amazon wishlist. I finally got around to trying one and I am so glad … Continue reading Element: Yoga for Energy & Relaxation

Element: Cardio & Conditioning Yoga

I happened to be browsing the workout DVDs at the library and I saw they had a few brand new DVDs--workouts that had just been released in December 2015! Element's Cardio Conditioning Yoga was one of them. Since I am so enamored of most the Element workouts I've done so far, I decided to give … Continue reading Element: Cardio & Conditioning Yoga

Element: Yoga for Weight Loss

Yoga for Weight Loss is another excellent yoga workout from Ashley Turner and Element. Don't let the term "weight loss" in the title scare you away--it's an overall great yoga workout. I guess they titled it "weight loss" because it is one of her more strenuous yoga workouts. I broke a sweat during it but … Continue reading Element: Yoga for Weight Loss

Element: 5 Day Yoga

5 Day Yoga is yet another offering from Element that I sampled via the library. I liked the idea of a different yoga practice every day of the week and I like the way it is delivered even more. It has one of those menus where you can build your own yoga workout. First the … Continue reading Element: 5 Day Yoga

Element: Power Yoga

Power Yoga is another excellent yoga workout by Element and Ashley Turner. I've done quite a few Element and Ashley Turner yoga workouts over the past few weeks and this one is the most advanced and challenging of the ones I've done so far. I wouldn't say it was advanced, but maybe high-intermediate. I worked … Continue reading Element: Power Yoga

Element: Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility

Another major winner from Element and yogi Ashley Turner. Before I even get started, I have to preface this by stating that I have always tried to incorporate more yoga into my rotations. I know it is necessary and I even like and enjoy a lot of the yoga workouts I own. However, I have … Continue reading Element: Yoga for Stress Relief & Flexibility

Element: Yoga for Strength & Flexibility

I am so enamored of Element's workouts that I can't stop checking them out at the library to sample them (and then purchasing the ones I love). The workouts are beautifully produced. All of the ones I've done are set in the same location--a beautiful green, vibrant garden beside the Pacific Ocean. They play relaxing … Continue reading Element: Yoga for Strength & Flexibility

Element: Barre Conditioning

This is my Barre week. I checked out a bunch of barre workouts from the library to sample and this was my first. It will not be the first barre review to post, but that is because there are two workouts on this DVD and at the time of this writing, I have only done one … Continue reading Element: Barre Conditioning

Element: Ballet Conditioning‏

I love Element workouts—even when I don’t love the actual workout. Does that makes sense? Element creates beautiful, well produced workout DVDs, even when the actual workout doesn’t appeal to me. Element: Ballet Conditioning is one of those workouts. It is not a bad workout. Some of it actually challenged me, but overall it is … Continue reading Element: Ballet Conditioning‏
