Great, love it. I'm starting to feel the correct positioning of my body. I notice that when I tilt my pelvis in and pull bell in, that my breath only goes to my chest and not all the way down to diaphragm. I am hoping this awareness is the first step in being able to correct my breath.

all I can say is wow. I started yoga in . June/July of 2018. Really liked it so wanted to give yoga a try for a year to see what a diff low impact exercise would have on my physical apperance. I always did in tense cardio to stay fit.

This practice helped me correct my warrior 1 an d 2 stance an d I did not know I was not getting the most from the positions till today.

I totally feel the difference in poses when done correctly!

This class helps students go beyond alignment, the pace contributes to imprinting the sense of stability and grounding in the body. Excellent class!

"Whether you know it or not, you are imprinting the sensation of stability in your body... this becomes grounded and ingrained, a part of who you are." YES! The pace of this class allows us, the student, to focus completely in sensing and feeling one's body alignment. Great class!

I'm a beginner, and this routine was just about perfect in length and intensity. I felt challenged but I wasn't stressed near the end. Thanks!
