Beautiful meditative flow - an excellent start or end to a yoga session. Very nice!

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?

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.

Thank you for this class! Great opportunity to stand up from my desk and I'm grateful to be able to release tension and focus on forgiveness before diving back into things.

After doing a Vinyasa flow class, I still felt unsettled and resentful so searched for a shorter class to try to add on to my morning wake-up and this was was amazing. Pushing the anger out physically helped clear me out mentally and I felt calmer and more focused after this flow. Thank you, Guy!

Hmmmm.....I dunno. "Yoga for Seniors"? This was a lot of very quick up and downs. I have a wonky knee right now and achy wrists. This sequence was a real challenge, and not necessarily in the best way :(

Just didn't do it for me, though I kinda made it through with lots of adaptation. I suppose for people with good wrists and good knees and lots of flexibility, this would be an effective practise. Perhaps I'll try it again in a few months when I'm healed. I'm doing the 14 day Beginner challenge and this was part of the 'package'; I've appreciated all the previous sessions. Guess it's to be expected that they don't all suit me.

Hi Bev -- Fair comment. I can see how wonky knees would make this one less accessible. Mea culpa. I'm also glad to hear that the other sessions have worked for you -- thanks for your perseverance and patience! All the best and happy practicing, Guy

I think you have to feel the fullness of your anger or sadness or resentment before you can truly release it. The first time I did this I definitely felt my anger stir up inside, but I also felt a relief to be able to release some of it, to open myself up to love and forgiveness. I'm grateful for this short, simple forgiveness movement. Thank you, Guy. I think I'll return again and again.
