helen, thank you for your videos. Both my husband and I have many years of doing some yoga. We now have a special needs child (11 y. o.) and we've gotten her started on her practice. Your practices are some of the few on the website that are beginner, short enough (15-20 mins), and incorporating some relaxation and breath, so that she gets benefit. You are greatly appreciated!

Thank you so much for creating space for bigger bodies in yoga. I've avoided it for years because it hurts my wrists and I feel like I can't breathe but your entire beginner series provided so many options and invited me to allow myself to take the space my body needs. Thank you!!!

It's my pleasure! I'm so happy that you kept looking for a practice that would work for you and even happier that my classes are working for you! Keep modifying in any way that you need and above all, enjoy yourself! :)

My pleasure! Good for you for taking some time to yourself in what sounds like a very busy schedule. Sometimes just getting to the mat is the biggest challenge of all. So glad the practice worked for you, and thank you so much for taking the time to comment! :)

OMGosh Goodness, I have been waiting for you almost 5 years now. It's been a journey to work my body through yoga and you have given me yoga wings. This is not my first attempt at Yoga but this is definitely the most comfortable I have felt doing yoga. Thank you @doyogawithme It was time to have added a plus size version of yoga. Can I just say you have inspired me and now look forward to calling you my lunch break at work. :) Thank you for what you do.

No one has ever told me I have given them yoga wings before and this has put a huge smile on my face!! I'm so happy that this practice feels comfortable in your body and remember you can color outside the lines and continue to modify in any way that you need to. Once we get on board with the idea that our practice is there to meet us instead of us trying to shove our way in to it, the doors blow open and it's a whole new experience. Thank you so much for taking the time to comment, and I'll see you at lunch! ;)
