Nice little series, well cued, but I can't lift both my arms straight out in front of me for superman. I can lift one at a time in that pose, but somehow not both. Are there exercises I can do to strengthen whatever muscles I need to do this?

You could either adapt by raising both arms as high as you can or raising one arm at a time and balancing between them.

I wanted to do this in the morning to wake me up, but being on the floor so much put me back to sleep.

Great instruction and context - powerful moves but didn't hurt my joints. Perfect!

This was my first yoga class ever. I liked it but was a bit concerned about the pressure on my knees while doing the circles, because I have had a couple of bad falls on my knees in the last 2 years. Any suggestions? Still, I feel energized after finishing. Thank you!

You can place padding under your knees to soften the pressure. A folded blanket would work best.

Thanks, this was a nice short length of about 10 min. It felt rigorous, strengthening and fast paced - a bit more than I wanted for a "gentle" class. Being imaged of an angry kitty repeatedly feels kind of distracting. Plus I was surprised by the ending too. Anyhow, thanks for offering this, is got my cardio going. The clear description of how to use the breath and how to distribute weight on the hands and palms was very helpful.

I love that this is quick and has a lot of stretches to get the blood flowing. Great morning routine when you are in a hurry!
