Amazing! The practice I didn't know I needed. As a bonus, my cat watched the first 5 mins of this video (a first!) absolutely enthralled with Guy, and then proceeded to relax with his voice.

I’m at the level of beginner I, I was able to do the first 30 minutes. I will come back to this session in six months to see how much I’ve improved

I loved the class and will come back to it many times. That said, I had difficulties / nearly didn't manage in the "goddess feet" part to stay upright in the back since my body wanted to lean forward at a 45° angle instead. Any ideas / tips how to avoid that would be amazing. If it is relevant to the question, I am in a larger body.

Great class! thank you! I'm doing the 14-day Slow Flow Challenge and this was a lovely progression from class #1. When I read "sun salutations", I thought: Oh no! But these were gentle. I also loved how you integrated tai chi movements into the asanas, which served to build strength in the pose. I will come back to this one frequently!

I was getting over a cold today and enjoyed the focus on breathing. Guy has a very calm approach but at times this class can get vigorous. For me it was a good evening practice. Thank you Guy!

All good except trying to come halfway up with my hands on the floor after forward fold. I need to bend my knees almost 90 degrees just to get my fingertips to the floor. To straighten my legs a little and bring my back horizontal, I need to move my hands up to my knees.

Fair point. I’ve got pretty extreme hip flexibility, so while it might look easy in my body I know that it’s not possible for lots of folks to get their hands to the floor without bending their knees. You’re doing exactly the right thing by bringing your hands higher on your legs in the 1/2 way lift pose. Keep doing what works for you!

I’ve been doing yoga for a long time, but until this class I didn’t realize I’d fallen into a habit of forgetting to link my breath with movement! And I feel so relaxed afterwards! Thanks so much, and I’m really enjoying the series.

I just wanted to say thank you Guy for this wonderful class. As someone who suffers from chronic fatigue syndrome and anxiety - this class is simply perfect for when I want something a bit more active. Your light-hearted and straightforward teaching makes for a meditative yet technically precise practice. I hope we see more of you soon!

Thank you. This was a very good class to wake up the body after a year-long absence of yoga. The core needs to build and the low back gain strength again. Holding the strong poses, I am very aware of the musculature. I'll repeat this tonight !

Bonjour,
J'adore ce cours, je le pratique régulièrement. Le rythme, la voix, les exercices, c'est tout bonnement parfait. A la fin du cours, on se sent bien.
Guy, pouvez-vous proposer un 2ème cours du même style et légèrement plus avancé ?
Merci, Namasté

Wonderful! I'm glad you enjoy the class. I'm about to film several more classes and will be including one that is more challenging. It will be a few months before you see it on this site -- but hopefully it will be what you're looking for. All the best, Guy

Helpful & appreciated! One request, which applies to others’ videos too not just yours: that you pause slightly between statements/sentences. I have some hearing loss, and need more time to grasp what’s said, so pacing and spacing of speech is a major factor in my fully comprehending. Clarity of consonants is particularly important. This seems to be true of many w hearing loss.

Hello and thank you for your feedback. I do have a bit of a tendency to mumble my words -- it's been a life-long thing -- and will do my best to accommodate your request. I think that speaking slowly, and with clarity, is certainly a valuable life skill! All the best, Guy

Guy, this is a fabulous class. The addition of QiGong type movements brings a new energy to the practice.
It is perfect for me, an advanced beginner...or beginner intermediate!
