Healing Voices
By P.J. Moynihan (Director)
Review by Cassandra Evans on Tue, Mar 28th 2017.
Healing Voices by P.J. Moynihan (Director)As Director P.J. Moynihan clarifies, he is not categorically opposed to medication and psychiatry, but he anticipates this work will broaden the social dialogue about alternative approaches to mental health and allow for burgeoning human rights.  In this rich documentary, Moynihan invites us to join and consider the detailed journeys of three individuals who live in and out of altered conditions or "extreme states of consciousness."  As we follow Oryx Cohen, Jen Constantine and Dan Sullivan, we experience their unique discourses surviving on and off medications and in and out of hosp

Beginners Meditation & Mindful Stretching
DVD
By Nadia Narain
Review by Beth T. Cholette, Ph.D. on Mon, Feb 27th 2017.
Beginner's Mediation & Mindful Stretching is a new offering from Hong Kong-born, London-based yoga instructor Nadia Narain.  The DVD provides a variety of short, meditative-based practices--some incorporating very simple yoga moments, others more focused on stillness--as a means to foster relaxation.         Narain teaches these practices alone via voiceover in a minimalist studio.  The routines are listed on the Main Menu as follows:  Play All – Introduction – Breathing (5 mins) – Stress Release (5 mins) – Energizi

Detox Yoga
DVD
By Amy Schneider
Review by Christian Perring on Tue, Jan 31st 2017.
Detox Yoga by Amy SchneiderThis Detox Yoga DVD is well made, with 3 sessions, each about 20 minutes, that are all pretty simple, Schneider leads the sessions sitting outside on a deck. She gives instructions in a voice-over, and there is innocuous electronic music in the background. The theme is to detox the body and mind, and she takes this very literally. The idea that doing a twist is going to squeeze toxins out of one's internal organs, or will help one's digestive system seem completely unsupported by any science, so it's best to ignore those claims. The twists and flexing are probably good for the body and may hav

Born to Balance - Balance Basics
DVD
By T. Jacob Felder
Review by Beth Cholette, Ph.D. on Tue, Aug 9th 2016.
This DVD is led by Jacob Felder, a registered yoga teacher (ERT-500) with Yoga Alliance.  During his 6-minute Introduction, Felder explains that the video is designed for both yoga teachers/other health care professionals who wish to assist their students with balance as well as for yoga students who wish to improve their own balance.  He also discusses how balance involves the following three systems (in order of importance):  1) vestibular, 2) proprioception, and 3) vision, and reviews some additional factors which contribute to balance as well.   The Main Menu of the D

Experimenter
DVD
By Michael Almereyda (Director)
Review by Christian Perring on Tue, Jul 26th 2016.
Experimenter by  Michael Almereyda (Director)Experimenter tells the story of Stanley Milgram, the psychologist who did the famous shock experiments about obedience in the 1960s. It starts out as a straightforward biopic, with a rather detailed and laborious depiction of the shock experiment.  But 21 minutes in, Peter Sarsgaard, the actor playing Milgram, steps partly outside of his role and addresses the audience directly, and explains his motivation. There's also a surreal element, since there is an elephant walking behind him down the corridor. Then the movie continues as before, with frequent other similar diversions from a regul

Everyday Yoga for Stress Release
DVD
By Nadia Narain
Review by Beth T. Cholette, Ph.D. on Tue, Mar 1st 2016.
Everyday Yoga for Stress Release  by Nadia NarainThis DVD, created by United Kingdom-based instructor Nadia Narain, offers yoga practices to restore a sense of harmony and balance.  It inclues three separate "programmes," each with its own unique focus.  Programme 1 is a gentler practice for when feeling tired or low on energy; it is more calming and designed to help facilitate sleep.  The second programme is a higher energy routine meant to work off tension.  Finally, Programme 3 focuses on managing anxiety and other stressful emotions. Narain teaches these practices alone via voiceover in a large exposed brick studio.&

KUNDALINI YOGA for Your Week - TUESDAY - Core
DVD #2
By Natalie Wells (Instructor)
Review by Beth Cholette, Ph.D. on Tue, Feb 23rd 2016.
This DVD is the second in what will eventually be a five-set series by Kundalini yoga instructor Natalie Wells.  Kundalini is different than the more commonly practiced styles of hatha yoga, as it involves repetitive movements, or kriyas.  In her introduction, Wells states that Tuesday, the focus for this practice, is associated with Mars.  To build courage and self-confidence, the exercises that make up this routine are designed to stimulate the third chakra, or the solar plexus.         Wells instructs via voiceover.  She is featured al
