Michelle takes you through a 75-minute class that moves gradually and intelligently into deeper and deeper poses, eventually completing the class with yoga nidrasana, or yogic sleeping pose. She has an incredible attention to detail and awareness of body alignment so each pose is done safely and effectively.

Beautiful loooong hip openers, and very clear detailed instructions - feeling regenerated and open. Thank you, Michele!

I dunno, I thought her commentary and reminders about alignment were useful. It's easy to unintentionally "cheat" in poses like these , sacrificing long-term strength, flexibility and form for what looks like short-term gain. Without clear instructions, people going from intermediate to advanced might get stuck wondering why the more challenging poses are inaccessible or why their joints bother them. I've been practicing for a decade and still have to remind myself sometimes to stay aligned properly rather than "cheat" my way into poses.

Have to agree with the constant chatter (incessant really), particularly in a long class with long holds, there was little opportunity to revel in the poses in silence.

Otherwise a great hip class.

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!
