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

Thanks, Guy. I did the hips sequence today as a part of the challenge--lovely!

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.
