Shiva Rea Yoga Trance - Dance (Acacia/Acorn)


Picture: C+ Sound: C+ Extras: C+ Main Program: C+



Our occasional look at exercise and self-help titles continues with star Shiva Rea and her new title Yoga Trance Dance. She talks about how she has combined the three for over a decade and what a success it is. I was not as impressed as I have been by other such programs, but she is enthusiastic, competent, serious, positive and professional enough to pull together a decent show here. It is not shot with the best form for such a program, with the camera choosing some odd angles, but it has its moments and is recommended if you are convinced it sounds like the combination you really want.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is not bad, taped in HD and is nothing exceptional, but is sufficient for an exercise program. The Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo has no real surrounds, but is here with and without instructions, as was the case with previous Acacia DVDs. Extras include a 12-page program guide inside the DVD case, mini-documentary on Rea, a Yoga Matrix menu, video remix, expert comments and meditation section.
