Really enjoyed this. It was helpful to have a calming practice that was shorter for busy days. I loved the eye movements. Really helpful for me as I am on screen all day long focusing centrally for such a large portion of the day.

Great class. I’m curious as to why we turn our eyes to the side when doing the neck stretches. Does this give an extra twist?

I loved the 3 claps down for the heart centre! I do somatic experiencing and thought this very useful Ron. Id like a longer class please! Your yoga classes I do orientate as you so wonderfully focus on those aspects, so this was great! Thanks so much! Im in my mid 50's and have had stress, for too long, so your classes really orientate me, I have a lot to thank you for! Especially not being able to go to yoga classes due to the lock down. From now on -yoga at home with a cup of tea!
