Wow! Others would put this in an hour long class! Very nicely guided. I feel awake and curious now. Thank you very much Fiji.

This class is amazing. I was feeling anxious for the past few days and this really helped me understand how to move past some deeply held anxieties in my body. Thank you David for your amazing yoga therapy!

I enjoyed the twists, trying Fallen Angel, and core strength exercises. I just wish that Jonni-Lyn would not rush through vinyasas, which seems to be a common pattern in her classes. It makes me feel as though she is only interested in certain poses and not focusing on the flow itself. Over the years I have focused on not getting sloppy in vinyasa and being mindful to really use the breath to move through each movement. I don't want to have to revert to sloppy movements where I could actually injure myself so I have to purposely slow down myself and not follow her pacing during these parts.
In this class she also rushed through the breathing during downward dog - She instructs us to take 5 long inhales and exhales but she rushes through this on both occasions. It would have been better if she had said to just take 3 long breathes and then not rush through them. : )

Am a Pilates newbie and really enjoyed this challenging class! The beauty of the recorded videos is that it’s easy to watch a segment first, rewind, and then try. Very grateful that Pilates classes were included in this challenge!

Even though I've been doing yoga on and off for nearly 20 years, and consider myself a solid intermediate, I found David's review of the fundamentals here to be very helpful. This class in particular pulled things together for me from the previous "Align, Stabilize and Stretch" class, and the Core Stability classes before that. Not only did this class remind me of some things that I've forgotten or gotten lazy about, but I learned a couple of subtle movements regarding alignment and body positioning in some basic poses that I really hadn't realized before!

I'm sure wonderful for sleep but a great way to bring energy back into your body if you are just plain old depleted.

I'd never tried fallen angel before! It was very fun. And through this challenge I am really enjoying Jonni-Lyn's classes and teaching approach.

There's nothing like a big cup of Jonni-Lyn juice to get the spirit soaring. This class flew by, such a fun, lively flow! Thanks so much.

I was originally intimidated because of some of the comments. This was different but a great core workout and I’m very glad I didn’t skip it. We’ll worth trying/doing!

Thanks Jonni for this class. I almost made side crow/fallen angel, I fell a few times but for the first time I wasn't afraid to try it.

I really enjoy your rest and recover practice in this challenge. Normally I only do power yoga classes and always thought that this resting doesn´t count as real practice. But now thanks to you and this challenge, I found out that I totally miss a big piece in my practice, that I didn´t even understand how important a restorative practice is. I am amazed how great I feel after afterwards and how much easier it is the next day to continue with challenging classes. Thank you, Tianne for your positive energy and for making me trying out new things.

A very inspiring class! I never tried pilates before and find it much more challenging than I thought. (I had already a hard time in the intermediate class :-)) I guess I wouldn´t have tried it without this challenge and I am thankful for new input, to try out new things.
