Kundalini Yoga for Energy & Super Radiance( Raviana Productions )
For that person on your shopping list who's a little bored with his or her traditional hatha yoga practice and is looking for something different, this unique program might be just the ticket.
Seasoned kundalini yoga team Ana Brett and Ravi Singh guide you through a series of vigorous stretches, 18 minutes of heart rate-elevating movement and two endurance-testing salutations or exercises before slowing things down with a deep relaxation and "solar power" mantra.
Think of this as kundalini with training wheels. The traditional music has been updated with an electronic edge, some of the poses have been slightly modified and there's a design-your-own-workout option that lets you include or omit whatever you wish. That's a good thing if you're pressed for time or don't care to sing or chant.
What you'll get is a relaxed, limber body and greater energy to handle the rest of your day.
