List of Ingredients
Yoga workout DVD with Shiva Rea.
There are three main segments to the Shiva Rea AM Energy, plus a meditation, Shavasana and bonus workout from the Radiant Heart program. The first workout is called Body Mandala 108. For 23 minutes, the follower performs yoga positions with 12 repetitions of each pose. The repetitions isolate muscles and provide a warm-up of sorts. For the beginner, this section of the video is ideal as an alternative to classic weight training or aerobics.
The second segment is Shakti Flow, which lasts just more than 20 minutes. The music and movements in this portion of the Shiva Rea AM Energy are faster than the first segment. Free flowing moves with a structured pose once in a while increases energy and mood.
The third segment is Vira Flow. Many followers claim this 23 minute segment is the most difficult of the three. The poses focus on balance and concentration. While this portion is less cardio active, it is faster than the warm-up portion of the workout. The bonus workout, Heart Salutation, is 20 minutes.
Meditation occurs for 5 minutes before the first workout with the DVD concluding with a 6 minute Shavasana. During the Shavasana, Rea chants with the music, which is slightly annoying to some followers.
There is no diet guidelines included with Shiva Rea AM Energy. A healthy breakfast starts the metabolism, so dieters need to save enough time to eat after working out. If working out on an empty stomach is not comfortable, the Shiva Rea AM Energy can be completed any time of the day.
