Such a wonderful morning class. Thanks, Josh. I wish there would be more classes with Josh for Beginner II to Intermediate I because of his smooth way of teaching. His pace allows to get alignment in place, I really thing sometimes he is seeing me (probably a feeling other students share).

Thank you for a lovely class, Josh. After a day of caring for others at work, I find that I often need a gentle calming practice to nourish my body, clear my mind, and feel whole again. Your presence is very soothing and the pace is perfect for slowing down a churning, overloaded mind. Just what I needed today. Thank you for sharing with us.

Excellent way to get moving if you aren't one of those who likes to jump into the day. Soothing voice, nice tempo to the movements.

Great stretch before work, and for calming after bad dreams and settling in a more grounded way into the day.

Absolutely awesome little class. Stretched me out in all the right places first thing in the morning. Josh’s voice and guidance is very calming and this is a lovely chilled way to start the day. Lovely. PS you don't need two blocks for this class, one is only used to sit on if you need to.

I have to say...this is my miracle class. I have been having trouble with a knot in my back (stress) and this class makes it disappear! Hopefully, it will someday disappear and not come back. Thank you, Josh!
