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!!!

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! :)
