As a 64 year old newbie at Yoga, Guy's approach is so inspiring and informative and I love the imagination in it...just what I am looking for! Thanks!

4/16/21. Whoa...that was powerful! Movements felt good and after I got the rhythm of it I was able to focus on letting go of some sticky/icky feelings and to invite in a sense of freedom . Fantastic practice - bookmarking this one. Thank you Guy!

Wonderful ! I really appreciate all the different camera angles. That helped with figuring out the moves, especially since I had to modify the "down on your knees' part.

I love this practice! I've never done that type of movement heading into cobra to "let go" and found it very energizing and even put a smile on my face. Thank you.

A lovely methodical practice. Slow and steady. I could feel the energy shifting. Thank you, Guy!

I liked the concept and flow of this practice. I thought that at times, the breaths came a little too fast for me, though, especially some of the inhales. Not a problem - I will do this practice again at my own pace.

Question about forward fold: Should I keep my knees straight and let my hands dangle just below my knees, or should I squat to get my hands down to the floor?

Guy Friswell 1 year ago

In this sequence, when taking the initial forward fold, I’d suggest keeping yours legs relatively straight and only folding to an amount that’s reasonable for you ... say hands to knees or shins or just dangling. My thinking here is that since you’re coming up part way in the next breath and then getting down to the floor, getting your hands to the floor with deeply bent knees on the first fold would be a bit much. Ultimately do what feels best in your body and that allows you to flow easily from one position to the next. It should feel natural.

Very effective sequence. Helpful in the time of coping with a pandemic. Thank you.
