thank you so much for this class Helen. I didn't feel like rolling out my mat this morning thinking of all the other things I needed to do to prepare for NY celebrations but so glad I took the time.

Thank you Helen for this wonderful class. I enjoyed all of it. The journal prompts/questions are lovely and applicable to anytime. I'll be modifying positions for my own ailments as needed.

Helpful class in that it normalized my feelings of stress and helped me think about new approaches in planning for the holidays. Good hip work also

Thank you, Helen, for your gentleness and kindness. I enjoy your practices for that reason.

I was excited when I heard you say we would journal and I did. When practicing yoga, answers may come to us, but we don't get the chance to write them down right away. We did in this practice.

One small request I have is, when it is time to journal, I need silence in order to think and write. If there is talking, I can't. If you could provide complete silence for those two minutes, except for the one-minute notice, that would be great.

Merry Christmas to you!

I agree with the other posters that Helen's class is supportive, and gentle. However, I can only give it 3 stars as don't think it's an Intermediate level but rather Beginner.

The description might mention the amount of time given to the journalling - might just be me but I felt frustration rather than calm at the end of the class, sorry!

"Let your hands be gentle and your face be calm." What a tremendous mantra to take with me through the holiday season. Thank you for your love and your spirit.

Wow! This class is a slow, beautiful dive inward. It’s 100% perfect for today, the day of the winter solstice. I felt like Helen made this just for me.

Thank you Helen for this beautiful practice - my first one with you!
What a grounding and gentle practice...and lovely the calming instruction of Helen’s voice. I definitely feel benefit from this timely flow. This was a lovely change from the stronger intermediate and advanced classes I usually gravitate to. I’m definitely going to explore more of Helen’s classes. Season’s Greetings!

Such a lovely time - every class with Helen. Thank you so much. I took the "3 savasana" option and it was dreamy.
