If you're having issues with the player:

Moon salutations are a fun alternative to the popular sun salutations. They are very different - bringing in goddess, pyramid, standing side bends and no downward facing dog. Anastasia introduces the class for the first 6 minutes, so if you would prefer to go right into the flow, skip to 6:45. This is designed so that you can continue on your own once you remember the flow for yourself.

Equipment: None
Style: Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga


No deep bends...and still a nice stretch

I was recently told to avoid bending in half or downward dog. I thought it meant the end of yoga for me. However, this class did the trick. I feel stretched out while avoiding folds. I like Anastasia's calm voice and gentle pace. Thank you.

Thank you for providing guidance for the moon salutation - as we are about to enjoy a full moon (March 2018).

Thank you for this lovely relaxing sequence, Anastasia. Thought I would do it in the energy of the new moon just now. I always enjoy the audience that's in the water behind you, too. :-) What kind of critters are they??

This was an excellent flow to

This was an excellent flow to end my busy day! Thank you!!

Ninja pose!

So glad everyone is enjoying the Ninja Pose/flow. It's for sure harder than it looks, and there is something to satisfying about making it from one end of the mat to the other so down low :)

Love this Moon Salutation flow!

I have injured shoulders from HIIT workouts so I am slowing down but still working out with yoga and various cardio. This is a great flow that doesn't impact the shoulders but does help stretch them. Thank you! It's been difficult finding standing yoga flows and this one has a great pace and utilizes a lot of muscles.

Loved the initial walk-through, and new (to me) variation of Moon Salutations - yay, on a yummy Taurus Moon today!
Ninja dancer stretches were so welcomed - balance and hip opening. Will do more of these.
Muchas gracias, Anastasia!
