Maritza Meditation for Beginners

I have a different DVD that’s for beginners from the same company (Gaiam) that I’ve been using. I highly recommend it even if you don’t use the light yoga sessions before and after the meditation. However, I prefer this one because it’s all Maritza. The meditation is quite similar but I enjoyed the “body scan” section and the interview with Maritza. It may be helpful for some to know that this is “mindfulness” meditation and doesn’t have any kind of religious component to it. You’re simply clearing your mind in order to bring a calm focus to your thoughts and actions.

Meditation for Beginners helps to ease stress and tension. Since I have been using this dvd for 20 minutes each day to meditate, I have been less tense and my stress level has went down tremendously. Meditating has helped me to clear my mind of all the negative things that have kept me tensed up and stressed out.

I’m just getting into this stuff. It’s incredibly hard for me to shut my brain off for even a second. So much so that it’s hard for me to sleep. I’ve been this way for as long as I can remember. A friend suggested mediation and this was a great, and helpful video for me. Now to expand on it!

Favorite DVD, maybe. I wanted to try yoga and meditation, but had always been overwhelmed by other yoga DVDs, or irritated by other people trying to lead me in meditation. Most people sound like they are trying too hard to be soft spoken and inspiring, or say things that annoy/distract me, but this DVD was perfect. Not only did I really take to the yoga and am now well beyond beginner, I still use this DVD when I want a QUICK relaxing yoga session or to quiet my mind with the meditation. By this point, years later, I could do without the DVD, but really like her instructions, and find I prefer to follow along. I have tried to find other products by Maritza, but alas, I cannot. I found her to be soothing and genuine and frank (not too New Age-ish- which is just not to my personal taste).

This was my first meditation dvd purchase. I’ll have to keep this for use at a later time. Some of the positions are a little difficult for me to do. I am a senior with back and hip issues so moving into and then sitting in some of the positions prove to be hard for me. The settings were amazing and the music is very soothing. I’ll just have to save this for when I am a little more flexible.

I have been using this DVD for years. It is a great intro to Yoga and Meditation, but is also great for those experienced with Yoga and Meditation. Maritza is awesome and provides a soothing and relaxing narration throughout the DVD. The tools she teaches you will definitely help you control stress in your life, and help you learn to live in the moment and clear your mind of the constant mind chatter of daily life. After a while, you will be able to instantly de-stress and clear your mind, regardless of where you are. These are tools that will take time to integrate, but over time, you will find that you are more in control of your mind and your life. Maritza is awesome!!! Breathe!!!

i do this meditation every day, twice a day. maritza is, hands-down, the best meditation guru i’ve ever experienced. no religious mumbo jumbo, just good vibes. no chanting, just mindfulness and concentrating on breath. she teaches you techniques that truly help clear the mind. plus, there’s a light yoga program and a body scan meditation–all are more beneficial than i can explain, either done separately or all together for a nice, long program. this dvd saved my life–which i know sounds a little grandiose, but i’m not kidding. if you’re searching for stress relief, get this.

Glad I bought this

Bought this for a friend for her birthday. She’s been having trouble sleeping. If she wakes up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to sleep, she plays this on her computer, then goes back to bed and sleeps the rest of the night. She reports that if she plays it before she goes to bed, she goes to sleep right away.

Liked the video. There are some light stretches that actually feel good. (you can skip if you wish) As far as the meditation it’s easy to follow and understand. This is a beginners video. That being said I did enjoy it, I will continue to use this video as I like how I feel once I complete a session. Some people use this in the morning, myself I use it after work about an hour before bed. I feel it helps me sleep. That alone is worth what I paid for it.
