Stress relief and flexibility programs are natural compliments in yoga. When you release mental pressure, you simultaneously relieve tightness in your muscles and joints. Similarly, when you focus on reducing stiffness in the body, you automatically release tension held in the mind. These two rejuvenating yoga programs, filmed in a tranquil garden overlooking the Pacific Ocean, can help undo the physical and mental effects of tension. The Stress Relief sequence uses the breath, longer holds, and forward bends to encourage the body's relaxation response. This calming sequence will dissolve anxiety, improve quality of sleep, reveal clarity of thought, and activate the anti-aging benefits that restorative yoga provides. The Flexibility sequence uses simple but effective flowing vinyasas to enhance agility, alleviate pain, cultivate a greater free range of movement, and reduce risk of future injury.

As the others Element DVDs, it was filmed in a nice garden overseeing the Pacific Ocean (which I find very pleasing and relaxing). Ashley's voice is soothing and her instructions are very clear and precise - it allows me to close my eyes and tune in my breath in several poses, especially during the "Stress Relief" sequence.
The DVD has 2 sequences: Stress Relief (~35 min) and Flexibility (~30 min). You can play each of them separately or the complete program. The "Flexibility" sequence consists in vinyasa techniques with hip openers, hamstring stretches, shoulder openers to increase not only flexibility in the muscles, but also in the connective tissues. The "Stress Relief" sequence focuses in breathing techniques, forward bends, and longer holds. I find this sequence lives up to its name - after practice, I'm calmer, more relaxed, and refreshed and I prefer to do it before I go to bed.
Overall, it is a great addition to my Yoga practice at home and a great balance to my p90x/asylum workouts.
Keep in mind that this is not a "workout" DVD per se. If you are looking for a DVD that will provide challenging poses for strength and toning, I suggest you look elsewhere. I use this DVD as a complement to my regular workout schedule, and as a cool down after a work out. Overall, I would highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to reduce stress in their life (who isn't?!).
It is an amazing DVD. I deal with chronic pain, depression and anxiety so i thought it would make sense to get the DVD with stress relief in it and I am glad I did. The stress relief portion of the DVD is incredibly relaxing. I know yoga is all stretching but the stress relief portion of the DVD is very easy and gentle stretches. There is no downward dog or pigeon pose anywhere. Just calm and simple stretches and I did like that. I felt like it worked as well because i have an overactive bladder due to anxiety and i feel like it calms down whenever I do the stress relief portion of the DVD!
The yoga for flexibility is a bit more strenuous and more of what you would find in a routine yoga session.
Got this on sale for $7 which is amazing as well. I would highly recommend this DVD to people who are very stressed out. The music if great as well.
