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


Tracy brings joy and encouragement to this practice. I use yoga to balance out running and circuit training. Her class makes my hip flexors and low back feel so good.

I love the balance between movement and stillness in the
Is practice. The poses were held just to the point of release but not too long.

Totally love this class! I've a way to go yet but it's great to have this to aspire to! Thanks Tracy!

Hurray on so many levels...
I really loved this class. It felt wonderfully thorough. I am looking forward to doing the other two classes.
Secondly, I was so excited to not experience the dreaded pause that comes from buffering! The entire class played smoothly without a hitch!

Great class with unique sequencing, gentle encouragement, and a plentitude of juicy stretches. Thanks!

Loved the creative sequences and clear instructions and deep motivations - thank you Tracey!
However, had recurring buffering issues between 30 and 35 min, reloaded about 4 times - suggestions?

Yes, that's a good suggestion. Also, let us know what device and browser you're using, Melanie. We are aware of an issue with iPads that our video host is working hard on resolving. If that's not the case for you, we can contact vimeo with your specific issue.

I have this same problem on many of your videos. I have changed the buffering speed which helped once, but not consistently. I am on a Mac laptop and use the Chrome browser. I have actually been finding my yoga in other places recently because of the consistent buffering issues I've found here. :(

Hi there.
It's great to hear that it's working for you now. In the future, you can change the resolution to 360 by clicking on the settings icon at the bottom right of the video to help it stream better.
Take care,
