This was perfect for my 55year old body which is definitely talking to me at the moment. I would love more classes for our age group. Classes that have challenge but in a slow pace. Thank you.

Love this practice! It helped me to feel more grounded and slow down, my whole body feels more open and strong all at once, thank you!

I found this class puzzling. The balances seem quite advanced - not beginner level at all. The rest of the class is slow and beginner oriented. Then the balances - whoa, another thing entirely. It's a bit discouraging, I thought. Normally I really like Satiya's classes.

It is great to get as many tips as possible for one-leg balances and you gave me another tip to focus on - so thanks for this. I loved your little chuckle at the end of our one-leg poses. It helped me lighten up a little and chuckle as well.

I so enjoyed this quiet practice again with Satiya. I am age 71 and enjoy the adjustment she states for less flexible. Thank you.

Thank you for a wonderful practice. I haven't worked out in months. I had surgery for breast cancer and endometrial cancer back in November and I just finished my chemotherapy. Although I have always been an active person, my 51 year old body needed a slow intro back into yoga. Your class hit all the right spots, thank you!

I have tried so many different classes through the internet and different apps; but until I found your classes, I wasn’t satisfied. I am a 68 yr old female and very flexible and strong. I was looking for a slower, mindful based yoga practice, and your classes are fabulous! As we age, I agree with you about listening to our bodies!

I really enjoyed Satiya's calming presence and will seek out more of her classes. I usually do more challenging classes but I was a bit tired and sore today so I sat on a block for the introductory cross-legged sequence and used a strap for the hand-to-big-toe sequence.

Thank you Satiya; another excellent class with your loving presence, calm voice and gentle yet challenging postures. Being 71 I appreciated your acknowledgement of seniors and sharing that even you like to go slow. I missed the laugh but will watch for it next time. I noticed that you asked for requests - I'd like a new yin/restorative with gentle twists, focus on lower back and help with insomnia, and maybe a cuppa tea thrown in.

Watching this practice through first, for safety, I wondered what caused the laugh in the middle? After joining the second time: I found myself laughing too!
I was so pleased (and surprised). Wow! What a joyous class!

Satiya, you are a wonderful presence and teacher -even through the internet! Which is saying a lot, I think!
Thank you for sharing this practice and your presence!

Namaste!

Yes I wondered about the laugh too. And also really enjoyed the class. Lovely pace and beautiful scenery for these lockdown times. Thank you - my first time with Satiya but won't be the last.

Really enjoyed it! I've been trying to get back into yoga after a few years away by adding some do a calming practice at night but I didn't get too active today so I wanted to add a slight challenge. I had to only try some poses for a few seconds before going backwards (for example extending my leg to the side didn't go so well but after a few seconds I returned to the front) but I was impressed by what I was able to push my body to do by going slowly throw the progressions. Thank you so much!

These classes are really just inspiring me and helping me to feel calm and strong dealing with stress at this time.
I am just so glad that have discovered do yoga with me and am enjoying all of your classes. As a person of sixty one I appreciate your advice for people of my age, but I will also recommend to my younger fiends and family.
Thank you so much Satiya and all of the doyogawithme team...a real gift to the world at this time.

Great class!
I have been doing yoga (inconsistently) for eight years but sometimes a combination of being away from yoga for weeks at a time plus a demanding physical job mean I need a very slow practice where I can really focus on poses, alignment, and stretching. This class did exactly what I needed it to! I was able to check in with my body throughout the practice and understand the areas I should focus on in the upcoming week to get my body feeling good and normal again.

Thank you!

I really appreciated the pacing of this session; it allowed me to feel into each pose. Also, the preparatory poses before the peak poses made this class more accessible for me. Thanks!

As a ‘senior’ with tight psoas, this was challenging, yet relaxing. I loved the pacing and flow. Thank you!

Great class for me when my rheumatoid arthritis is flaring. This class allowed me to continue my practice despite painful joints and fatigue. Thank you.

I really wanted to love this one - but I had to fast forward through loads of it. This is definitely not a beginners class - with hardly any modifications offered.

I am a senior returning to yoga after several years. This was a nicely paced stretchy yoga program. However, I've never been particularly good at balance poses and I not at all good with them now. I thought there was too much emphasis on balance poses for a beginning yoga routine. There were about 10 minutes of this class that I just couldn't do.

What a fantastic class. Just a hint of challenge while staying inward and listening to my body. Thanks Satiya!

I have been nursing a shoulder injury that doesnt allow me to do downward dog or poses that put full weight onto my shoulder. This class was a perfect sequence that allowed me to stretch, release, and easily modify here and there for my injury. I loved the balance sequence. Thank you Satiya, the time flew by.

Loved this practice, will definitely do this one again. Just getting back into my practice after 3 1/2 months, wasn't sure where to start but this was a great place. Enjoyed!

I really liked this class, thank you. It was quite challenging in some poses for a beginner but not too much. I really appreciate that some thought has gone into it so that I can be challenged enough to see where I'm making progress over time. I found the Savasana to be exceptional in this class, I could tangibly feel the practice integrating. I would have liked it a bit longer but then I'm always one for a long Savasana!

Wonderful grounding, strengthening, balancing and slowly stretching practice - thankyou Satiya!
A god(dess) sent for this body at this time of having strained my lower back on one side.
Back to the basics to be sustainable.
