What a perfect example of how prep work works! The peak pose, when it came, was effortless and graceful even though I had never attempted it before. A powerful reminder that all is possible - with the right guidance.

Enjoyed the gentle flow of this class through some deep stretches and balances. Will definitely add this to my list of favorites. This was the first class of Andrea's that I have tried and I appreciate her soft voice and gentle demeanor and look forward to discovering her other classes.

This was a well sequenced class that was perfect for my right quads and hip flexors. However, after prepping the right side, she cues the peak pose on the left. Then preps the left and does the peak pose on the right. If you want to do the side the was prepped, do the opposite of what she cues when coming to sugarcane pose.

I am chronically tight in my hip flexors and quads and find so few yoga classes really get into the quads - this was FANTASTIC! Thank you so much Andrea. Namaste
