What You Should Know
What is fluid yoga? According to Shiva Rea, the human body is made up of 50-percent water and that water can be a great source of happiness and energy. Fluid Yoga uses gently moving poses and transitions to tap into fluid energy in the human body. The Shiva Rea: Fluid Power workout is not for beginners as detailed instruction needed to learn each basic move is not included. However, even the most basic yoga follower will find the moves smooth and energizing, even if they have to hold a familiar pose longer than the instructor cues. The DVD includes three hours of workouts broken into 20-minute segments. The Yoga Matrix menu allows the viewer to choose which segments to follow and in which order those segments play. This allows the viewer to create a new workout every time.
List of Ingredients
Fluid yoga workout with Shiva Rea.
From the start menu on Shiva Rea: Fluid Power, the viewer can choose to create a workout or play one of the available segments or workouts. There are three preset intermediate workouts in the “long flow” category and two “short flow” workouts. Workout lengths range from 30 minutes to two hours. Longer workouts are designed for intermediate to advanced yogis, so beginners should try a shorter workout before delving into a two hour yoga session.
There are no extra pieces of equipment needed to complete the Shiva Rea: Fluid Power workout, aside from a yoga mat. The follower should have water and a towel nearby. Yoga may be a fluid exercise, but it will cause the follower to sweat, especially beginners.
Shiva Rea: Fluid Power is an every changing workout DVD, but it lacks dieting support. The workouts may be intense and fat burning, but without proper nutrition and a low calorie diet, the dieter will not lose weight. Some of the moves or poses may be difficult to strike and hold if flexibility is hampered with extra weight. Losing weight before starting a yoga workout of this level may make completion easier.
Shiva Rea: Fluid Power sells for $15.99. This is an extremely low price to pay for three hours of workouts. Consumer reviews average four stars on Amazon.com.

Fluid yoga brings together exercise and human potential. The beginner may have trouble transitioning between moves due to sheer lack of yoga knowledge. Reading about yoga positions and practicing before following the Shiva Rea: Fluid Power DVD is important. The lack of diet or weight loss advice means the dieter has to do additional research for weight loss.
