Good vinyasa class. I’d describe it as moderate intensity, with some power elements but not fiercely so. My only quibble is that the class description says “no equipment” but the instructor calls for a block for some poses. This should be corrected.

My second time with this practice. I love the way Andrea builds to the final pose. It’s not something I thought I could do but I found myself there thanks to the structure of the class. Love your humour as well.
