Very straightforward yet very intense opening stretches. I felt a bit achey this morning. Feel all stretched out open now.

This class didn't feel like an hour at all, probably because it was so calming and yet so much fun. You're a great teacher, Anastasia. I felt really comfortable in this practice, not too strenuous but not too easy either. Also, I never realized how tight my hamstrings are :o I loved the focus on breathing and the constant reminders to breath (sometimes I forget hehe) which is really important. Thanks again, amazing work!!
edit: I will master this sequence if it's the last thing I do so help me god jeez

What a wonderful relaxing class. It made me realize where all my tight points are. I'll be doing this one again and again.

I love how this class is so relaxing, yet gently challenges you with various strengthening poses and boat pose! The instruction was so clear and flowing I barely had to look at the screen. This class really got me into the zone. I feel so relaxed now. Thank you Anastasia!

I'm new to yoga and have been doing a few videos on this website, and this is the best one I've found so far! The class is challenging, but still easy to do and follow. What I appreciated the most was how easy the instructions were to follow without looking at the screen! As a newbie, this is super great!

That was really great Anastasia. Just what I needed this morning, a mix of challenge, stretch and soothingness :)

I was looking for a little more difficult class. This was good stretching...very beginner class. Not sure how it got its intermediate rating. I wish the ratings were more 1 to the class. By the time I realized this wasn't more of a gentle stretching class I was too far into it to start another class.
