It was a good beginner

It was a good beginner routine but there is a lengthy sequence on the knees if you can't be on your knees.

Perfect for helping my back pain
cjhuynh89 1 week ago

I have been doing this class for over a year. I first started after I hurt my lower back. Although it took over 3 months, doing this video gently was the key for my back improving. Before I started doing this video I had been going to the chiropractor and was not improving as everyone was hoping.
This class has taught me a lot about slowing down my train of thought and breathing in poses to deepen it.
This is also my go to class when I want a through stretching of my entire body because of whatever ache I am feeling.

Thank you Nikki for putting together this video and sharing it with us!

I absolutely loved this class and the way Nicky teached it. Time flew by, and I feel now absolutely relaxed and focused at the same time. I am a beginner but didn't find it challenging except for one particular pose : the one 54 minutes in. I could not hinge at the hips further than 10 cm maybe, eventhough I have no problem bringing my forehead to the floor when I sit crosslegged... Do you have any tips so that I can get more flexible in this pose? Anything that I should pay special attention to?
Thank you for a great class!!

Good for recovering from an illness

This was not a physically challenging class. Nicky had lots of suggestions for making the few active poses easier. Although I usually prefer a more athletic yoga practice, this was the perfect class to ease my body into movement again after a couple of days sick in bed!

This was a lovely class, with

This was a lovely class, with slow movements and great deep stretches...perfect way to start the morning. I have very tight hips, so one thing that I would have liked to see is a modification (for pose at 53:20) or more detailed verbal cues for people who aren't able to do the fullest extent of the pose. Thank you, Nicky, for a great class.

Wonderful class

Such a nice mixed of relaxation, deep poses and Nicky's lovely commentary. Thank you!

Not a beginner class for me...

I really like the instructor... But after a too much time on the knees, in downward dog and then planks and then sun salutations... It was too much. I would rate intermediate.

Awesome practice Nicky!

I really enjoyed the overall gentle feel of the practice! Perfect balance of restorative and active poses. Great Job :)

The best video for a complete beginner.

I am a complete beginner to yoga and I think this video is the best introduction to yoga. Extremely relaxing and it will be moderately difficult if you are not very flexible or used to the basic poses. It got easier the second and the third time and even more relaxing. The second time I could feel myself getting more flexible and comfortable. I will keep doing this one a few more times and then I think I'll be ready to move up in difficulty a bit.

If you are complete beginner, like me, start here!

Oh, and she is lovely.
