Certified instructor description:
Gentle moves selected to “release tension piece by piece, breath by breath.” The moves are all genuine yoga but Sara Ivanhoe's focus is breathing, flexibility, looseness and relaxation, not achieving the perfect pose. It begins with a very gentle “warm-up” stretch and it ends with just-plain-relaxation. Don't be confused by the title; the set isn't dark — it's light and airy with brightly glowing candles. Quiet instrumental music with some soothing nature sounds (e.g. gurgling water, soft rain). DVD includes a bonus 15-minute workout. ©2002.
