Quick Morning Flow

Intermediate I

Join Jonni-Lyn for this short but full practice to start your day off right! It includes the pranayama’s of kapalabhati and nadi shodhana, a warm up, sun salutations, a few asanas to energize you, followed by savasana and seated meditation. Note: This practice is intermediate/advanced as the pranayamas are not taught in detail but lead.

This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 9 of the Daily Dose 30-Day Intermediate Yoga Challenge.

This class moved to fast for me, I didn't feel I could take the time to feel my body in each pose.

This was fun! I tried this as a miday pick-me-up, and I'm so glad I did. I feel energized and grounded, and ready to go on with my day.

Such a delightful class! I'm loving this 30-Day Daily Dose Challenge as it is exposing me to classes I maybe may never have selected on my own. This is a complete, thorough, little class that I'm sure I'll turn to often. (Especially as I want to practice pranayama more often, but never do.) I feel so good now & ready for my day. [Note: As far as the level of this class, I consider myself Beg/Intermediate I & this class was totally fine for me except I did modify shoulder stand and plough to "waterfall" and happy baby.]

Amazingly efficient class! This is for me a perfectly portable class for wake up while traveling and on the go!

I just felt rushed through the movement part of this class. It wasn't that I couldn't keep up and I appreciate that it's a short practice, but more time to absorb the
salutations and twists would have helped me loosen up.

Feeling overwhelmed by what was facing me today, I decided to start my day with this practice and it was nourishing, grounding and better than a cup of coffee to help me feel centered. The pranayamas made me feel clear, open and calm. Thank you, Jonni-Lyn.

Thank you very much, Jonny, for this beautiful and refreshing class. I spend many hours before a computer, and this class helps me to open the upper part of the body. The pranayama work is both energizing and calming. Namaste!

This class felt more foundational than intermediate. A nice flow of breath-work, sun salutations, and mediation, but no real variations or challenge.

this is a beautiful way to start the day! I love the flow from the breath work to the asanas, ending in meditation. A short practice that never feels rushed but manages to pack a lot in. Thanks!

Thank you the breathing segments are strangely difficult and warming. I like the pace of this class.

Pardon the question, but I just have to ask: your arms look really strong; is that just from yoga or do you exercise with weights?

Great class - packed with stuff - energizing and grounding in equal measure! Love the balletic style of Jonni-Lyn's movements. Only the second class of Jonni-Lyn's I've done - but she's becoming a go to favourite.

Really love this class- such a well rounded practise and it is so great to start with Pranayama and end with the meditation. The asana sequence really stretches out the body and mind and takes away any morning aches and pains. It has left me feeling really energised and full of positivity for the rest of the day. Thank you!

I loved this practice and each element within it. Each of the breathing techniques in one spot brought awareness of the benefits in a way I have not experienced before. I feel more centered, grounded and stretched and all in 30 minutes. Thank you!

Excellent class for my equestrian body! Hit every joint and muscle that is TIGHT from my lifestyle. I must be honest though, I scrolled past the breath work. I know I need to incorporate things like that into my practice and journey but I’m here for the stretching and mobility more than anything.

Lovely way to start the day. I was a bit uncertain that I was limber enough being fresh out of bed but felt great at the end. Thanks for such a peaceful session.

I'm a beginner and decided to give this class a go, since I'm familiar with pranayamas and thought I would be able to follow it, but in my case it wasn't a good idea. I think this class is rightly ranked as intermediate/advanced, not only because the pranayamas are not taught, but also because of the asanas, which are'nt taught either (at least not the way a beginner would need it.) And please don't get me wrong, I'n not saying this is not a good class, just warning others beginners who, like me, still feel more at ease with other kinds of class, more encouraging, and more pedagogical, if I may put it this way. I know I have to progress, and I'm trying to, but prefer doing it through a "lesson" on more complicated asanas than trying to work my way through a lead flow that leaves me feeling clumsy and inadequate. Luckily, this site has classes to suit every need, so no complaining at all, just making my point since someone suggested all levels could do or work on this otherwise beautiful flow. Just looking forward to progress enought to be able to enjoy it one day!

A nice practice for the morning as stated. I like the breath work in the beginning and the short meditation at the end too.
It is a nice way to start the day. And, while intermediate, I believe all levels can do this / work on doing this practice.
