Flow for the Shoulders

Intermediate I

Anastasia's sweet style lends well to this gentle intermediate class. It's a seamless flow that focuses on shoulder strengtheners and stretches, while encompassing the whole body in a quick, but complete yoga class.

Happy, happy, happy is all I feel after this great practice. Nice instruction too and thanks for reminding us not to scrunch our toes.

I haven't practiced yoga for a long time, and we are now at home because of COVID19. I have been carrying my stress in my shoulders and this was a perfect - and challenging! - path back to a yoga practice, reminding me exactly why I need to do this regularly.

more specifically: I especially appreciated great instruction into Triangle Pose - it is always a challenging one for me because of old fears related to past knee weaknesses.

My shoulders thank you. Anastasia's instructions are clear and allows time for me to really get into the pose with my breathing.

Great sequence and flow. The opening mediation really set me up for the class. I will be looking for more classes by her. Thank you.

This practice could easily be named "Yoga for Shovelers"! We've already had a lot of snow this winter where I live, and this class is perfect recovery after moving around the cold stuff. Also helps that it's set on a sunny beach day :) I'm always tightest in my shoulders so I'll definitely be coming back to this one all year round. Thank you Anastasia for another sweet class!!

If it would be possible to give six stars, this class would have earned it. Especially the meditation at the beginning was great! Thank you!

Thank you Anastasia I had really tight shoulders from too much carrying and busyness. No chance for a massage today but doing this class was the perfect alternative, thank you for helping me breath light and love into those areas of tightness. On Shanti Zoe

Just love Anastasia's gentle yet very clear guidance through this well paced and grounded lengthening and shoulder opening class with a few extra 'surprises', like quad stretch in the air! Thank you! Just what I needed today - and will re-visit!

A lovely beginner/intermediate class with my favorite floor pose :) Perfect pace of flow and very soothing yet liberating.

Beautifully clear and wasteful even though very much flowing from pose to pose with some challenging ones thrown in. I felt very held and supported throughout - a real gift to myself. Thank you so much Anastasia for you lovely gentle teaching. Bless you. Namaste

A nice sequence but definitely more of a beginner class and more relaxation than strength so the description is misleading.

This class is more beginner than intermediate. Very little strengthening, mainly stretching.

I would love more classes from Anastasia, she has a wonderful style of teaching and her 30-40 minute classes are perfect for early morning, pre-work yoga. I look forward to trying her longer classes!

Awesome class! I really needed a shoulder opener after studying so much. I could definitely use more classes like this for study breaks.

I realize that I've been avoiding shoulder stretches. The Eagle is not a favorite. But, it feels great having done this and I think I will take the suggestion from Machine and add David's classes for a complete morning work out tomorrow. Anastasia is a very clear and enjoyable instructor. Thank you

I've taken this class a couple of times and love it. It's great for shoulder opening. The majority of the poses are held for a few breaths, which makes it great for an early morning practice.

I look forward to taking more of Anastasia's classes. Thank you.

A really great class for dealing with crunchy shoulders as well as leaving you feeling well stretched all over in strong flowing sequences. I liked the filming so you could see the positions from different angles which helped me correct my position.

With Anastasia's class, I suggest doing Davids hip and lower back class along with his hip flexor stretch class, they leave you feeling amazing, particularly if you are a triathlete. Thanks for this Anastasia great class.

I just tried this class as a gentle morning opener and it was perfect. The description is exactly right: nice, gentle flow with a lot of shoulder stretches. It does not have many shoulder strengtheners as far as I could tell, but it was still awesome!
