Happy hips and great cues
Helenita 4 months ago

Such an amazing practice to open the hips and low back. Michelle guides in a very detailed and thorough manner, always making sure we take care of our joints. Loved it and will repeat for sure!

Woah.

Hello hips. If they need some love- do this class. Lots of talking, but much of her instruction felt helpful. I’m not sure how this classs popped up at the top of my home screen, but I am so glad it did. This peak pose feels like it might take me one million millimeter miracles to obtain, but nevertheless she persisted.

Really deep hip openers and excellent alignment tips...

I LOVED this focused class. There is a wealth of alignment tips (so essential when you practice on your own) and deep openings. It's definitely advanced. Listening to multiple alignment cues when you are less than advanced can be frustrating and distracting; I found it extremely helpful. This is a great "day off" practice and focuses on specific areas. I was able to do everything, including Yogi Nidra on the right side, but my left side said "NO!" I am going to bookmark this page and come back to measure my progress in the future. I would really love to see more lengthy, focused classes like this one. Namaste from Ireland.

This class is a challenge as

This class is a challenge as I have very tight hips, but I feel incredible relief with the poses and gain deeper stretches due to the on-point anatomic instruction/cues. I love the total focus on the hips and holding the poses longer. Wonderful class!

Ready for Sleep

Beyond the constant chatter, which may or may not have caused me to yell at the video when we got to corpse pose, I really, really enjoyed this sequence of poses. It left my body feeling very open and ready for a good sleep. Thank you Michelle and team.

A bit too much talking

I am seconding this comment about the chatter. I would have like more silence. The series was very nice, but difficult to really get into and let my mind clear.

Amazing instruction

What a fantastic class - a complete change of pace from the fast flows I normally do, but it's far from easy - the long holds are challenging, but the perfectly clear instructions helped me move deeper into poses than I ever have before. My hips and legs feel wonderfully stretched. Many thanks!

Was able to get into a few poses I had not been able to do yet, thanks so much for explaining how to get into them so adequately!
