If you're having issues with the player:

This is the first in a series of three classes where Tracey takes you to the wonderful arm balance flying pigeon pose (eka pada galavasana). We call this class 'Preparation', since it warms your body and prepares it for the next classes in the series, Flying Pigeon Pose: Going Deeper and Flying Pigeon Pose: The Final Step, which will lead you into the full pose. But this class is not just about getting to step 2! It is a vigorous power yoga flow that you will thoroughly enjoy, lightened with Tracey's wonderful personality and charm.

Equipment: None
Style: Vinyasa/Power Yoga

Wonderful class Tracey, thank you!! I came back to it after a few months of having sciatica and shoulder problem and it felt amazing both for my body and my mind- it was the first time in weeks that I spent a whole hour focusing on the movements rather than worrying about what's happening outside! I am really grateful!xx

I loved this class - unfortunately I was interrupted 5 x!!!! I will make sure I have set aside time next time - it was really wonderful.

This class is awesome!! I was in Victoria recently for a quick overnight trip, and almost made it to one of Tracey's classes in person, but I was short on time and opted for a hike in East Sooke Regional Park instead. Hopefully next time I'll finally be able to take a class with Tracey in real life because she is my favorite.

Careful with your knees.
Thank you. Wonderful as alway. Returning to this older practice after knee operations and investigation into yoga and knee injuries. Deep bends in the knees with movement destroys the knees over time (been practicing g for 30 years and teaching for 15) The flow into cow pose with goddess arms is not good for knees. Be careful and avoid that move. It could be it feels fine now, but over time, it grinds away the meniscus. I love you Tracey. You're fantastic.

I think that is the best class that I've done with Tracey. Good flow, not too difficult but certainly challenging.
Even managed to surprise myself and held crow pose for a good 5+ seconds.
Loved it!

This is such a wonderful and complete practice. Great mind-body emphasis. The sequence in and out of fire log is simply brilliant. I feel powerful and renewed. Thank you for all that you do, Tracy! Much love.

I adore Tracy's classes as I feel like I usually am able to get every bit of my being stretched. This class felt wonderful on the hips, quads, psoas and shoulders. It's perfectly paced and peaceful. More Tracy classes please!

I was inspired to do this class from all the other comments. It was a perfect class. I have just done it for the first time and I already can't wait to do it again! Thank you Tracy
