This was enjoyable and exactly what I needed

I needed a very slow, very detailed video. Thank you, I will continue learning with you

Truly a beginner’s class/introduction. I was really exhausted standing in dog pose while Jeff to explains all the alternate forms of the pose, did not get much exercise with this video. Plentiful explanation and philosophy, I appreciate his use of sanskrit. A helpful orientation for beginners to get oriented to the Namaskara (mountain-plank-chataronga- downward dog etc) I would recommend Jeff’s Asana class for a more traditional flow.

An awesome addition would be quick links to related classes- maybe a side bar with the 2nd and 3rd video in the series for example. Maybe there is an option for that already that I'm missing! I just find it hard at times to find the next class. Anyway, really nice class thanks :)

That was really enjoyable, challenging in places, and a really good mix of movement with breath, and details. Looking forward very much to tomorrow's session. Thanks!

Great addition to the team. Enjoying this series. Jeff is easy to follow and understand. I’d describe his vibe as being like a great cup of coffee.

So excited to see Ashtanga classes on Do Yoga with Me!
Very much looking forward to working my way through all of Jeff and Jenni's videos! I have not been practicing for a little while, so this video was an excellent way to shake off the cobwebs. :)
