Just what I needed!

Thank you for this, it was truly what I needed. Didn't feel like 60 minutes, and afterwards I felt open/calm/aware of my breath. Again, many thanks.

Thanks.

Amazing. So relaxing and yes, restorative. Thank you for sharing this practice.

Gentle and Relaxing

Thank you so much for a terrific class. The poses were easy, relaxing, and restorative but had just enough stretch in them to make my overexercised muscles feel warm and tingly. I've recently started a new strength training routine and this class was just what I needed to recuperate.

I did have a little trouble getting up on the wall with a bolster under my bottom. I ended up giving up and just removing the bolster. I'm not sure what I was doing wrong, or if maybe I wasn't supposed to be as close up to the wall as I'm used to for wall poses ... ?

Thank you!!!!!

WOW! This practice was fantastic. I did this today because I'm recovering from DOMS after trying kickboxing for the first time, but I now have a new favorite to add to my Saturday night restorative yoga times. Thank you!
