This class is meant to be a part of a series that you can see in our program Establish Your Core Stability and Strength and on our Yoga for Beginners page. This class shows you what a full-length class feels like when you put a lot of emphasis on core stability throughout. As we said in the earlier classes, the intention is to feel light as you do yoga, maintaining a slow, deep breath, while attempting to balance effort and release in everything that you do.

Equipment: Strap, Block
Style: Hatha Yoga, Yoga for Athletes, Yoga for Runners, Yoga for Seniors, Yoga for Back Care

absolutely loved the pace of this class and what it offered me in view of yet another groin strain filtering into my lower back and top of my hip. I'm hoping to move on to a similarly paced class but one which offers more asanas progressing into the warriors, triangles, simple balances and some more floor-based asanas, so that I could get a full body work-out for about 90 minutes. Ron Stewart's classes come close, but he moves a little too quickly. Any other recommendations would be welcome. It would motivate me to become a subscriber, if I could find what i'm looking for. Namaste and in gratitude for this wonderful site and the motivation behind it.

David, I have scoliosis in my lower back and your classes, such as this one, have made such a difference in lessening my lower back pain by helping me stretch those stiff areas such as hips, quads and back muscles. And your voice and clear commands are the best! Thank you!

I was reluctant to do any of this teacher's classes - not sure why - but this was such a good long stretch - loved it. It put me into a great trance. Thanks!

I took this class as a part of the 30 day challenge. This has got to be one of the most amazing stretch sessions that I have done in my beginners practice so far! Thank you for such an amazing class.

Thank you. After having been a very regular yoga practitioner and teacher, I have fallen "off the mat" for several years. In many ways it is difficult (and quite humbling) to feel like a complete beginner again. This was a wonderfully paced and accessible way to get back into my practice. Much appreciated.

I did it on a Sunday morning. After a month leave vacation abroad, the stretching really is a big boost to start the week and be back to my regular programming. :)
