I love this class. I was looking for something to help me work my core and hips and not only is this practice perfect for that, it is quick too! I love that I can fit it in while my son is eating breakfast. Kim is a fabulous instructor and as soon as I finished this practice for the first time I looked up all of her other videos and have started doing them as well!

I do have a question though...my core is definitely not strong enough yet to do the move where one leg is up and we are supposed to be squeezing our knees together as we roll up and back down (starting around 7:50). I feel like my legs kick out to help me roll up or my back takes over. Any tips for modifying while my core gains strength?

Thanks for a wonderful practice!

Recovering from a broken arm operation and trying to get back to exercise, this class was perfect for the core and bit of stretching.
Looking forward to doing more of Kim's classes.

I joined the website a little while ago but already know Kim is my favorite instructor. When I paused the video at the end, just right after the meditation I couldn't help it but notice the shine & reflection of oneness on Kim's face. If simple but true happiness of one's self can be described that would be it.
I'm going through a hard time and besides an amazingly freeing yoga session, I gained an insight of what I am searching for...
I want what Kim has and that's a sign of hope.

I will be always thankful for this Kim.

I really enjoy Kim's classes on the Do Yoga With Me website. Her positive and compassionate teaching style and her clearly explained and well paced classes are so great! Also, the message at the end of this one was really helpful. Thank you so much!

This is a great, quick video. It's just the right balance of time & challenge for me, thanks! Added bonus- I love the dog who is just completely knocked out in the corner!

I have very tight hip flexors and I needed something that offered quick relief. This was it. After I was finished I felt great. Thanks for this wonderful session.
