Awesome lill practice to get me on the mat - and in the L-shape (yayyy - shall do more of those) today. Quick shift-up.
I agree with one of the comments, for me the breath was also too fast - which I find in all the Jivamukti classes (maybe part of it to breathe with this faster pace?) - besides that factor all else was great. And I love your classes, Jonni-Lyn, calm and clear and creative.
Thank you.

This was an eye-opening great start for me! I have gotten so inflexible & determined to make yoga a part of my routine! Enjoyed it & will do more classes as well as return to this 1. Thanks!

This was a good sequence of poses. I regularly do several of the very short (7-10 minute) flow classes on DYWM and always appreciate there being more short classes to choose from. This class I could see using to learn the sequence quickly in order to be able to do it without a video. I probably wouldn't practice with this video again because it felt too rushed to me, especially with the breaths being counted as they were. That said, it's great to see some Jivamukti on this site - I took a few Jivamukti classes many years ago and enjoyed them a lot.

Thank you for your thoughtful reply. In the Jivamukti tradition, and this class in particular, counting the breath is part of the teaching style. It reminds people to breath and to notice the steady count of the breath. Of course, we are all different and our lung capacity is also different. A count of five for one, is three for another. The point is to take all of the movement and breath and form it into a one pointed form of concentration,to turn it into a moving meditation. Learning the poses yourself and self practice is an absolutely wonderful way to practice! That way you can remove all outside distractions and focus inwards, which is a pretty great place to hang out.

Really nice like the Art of 9s with Traci.
I will try to use this before or after weight training.

Really enjoyed - although I thought her breaths were too fast - I took about three breaths to her five.

I am glad you enjoyed it! And yes, I should have mentioned that the breaths were on my count, but you should all breathe according to your own rhythm. It wouldn't be possible to match everyones breath count. I will make sure to explain that in the classes I film from now on.

Thank you for your feedback. This is a class that is ment to be short and sweet, getting in all the movements, in a short and sweet 10 minutes. I do realize that it may not be suited to everyone and hope to teach some more on this platform that you may enjoy more.
