Reclaim Your Joy

Beginner II

Nicky delivers a sweet, heart-centered yoga class to help release your grief and reclaim your joy. If you are not experiencing grief, do not rule this class out. Nicky is at her absolute best, guiding you with such care through a flow that focuses on opening up the heart and the hips, while returning to forgiveness, self-love and acceptance. Who wouldn't love that?

Through this class I understood yoga in a new way, The power of breathing... Thanks so much Nicky!

I consider this class as a present and shared it with many friends.

I first found this class two years ago when I lost my mum and came back to it today after a week where I lost two members of my family and said goodbye to a terminally ill cousin. I’d forgotten how much tension grief stores in your body. This is such a soothing class to help release the stress and pain in your body and bring some level of comfort. Thank you Nicky 💜

I'm just so grateful for this class. I'm currently supporting my partner through cancer treatment, and it's a daily fight with impossibility and fear. This class helps me to release some trauma, regain some clarity, and find the strength I need to get back off the mat and be the best caregiver I can be. Thank you so much Nicky x

Many thanks. I sprained my ankle 3 days ago but I was able to do the entire class and it feels better; I feel better.

Once again Nicky delivers a wonderful class. I love your approach. The pace is perfect, as are the instructions. Very relaxing and releasing. Lovely music which helps with the mindful meditative feel of the class. This is on my favourite list. Can we please have more classes from Nicky.

My dog died yesterday after I nursed him for three days and I'd been crying ever since. I felt exhausted by waves of grief as I've never been separate from him since the day he was born 12 years ago. This practice brought me back to a sense of peace and stillness, I smiled for the first time in 5 days and instead of the aching loss I felt him close to me again. It makes me realise how powerful yoga is and the big role it's playing in transforming my life. This was a wonderful practice and I'm so glad I made myself do it! Thanks so much.

I loved this video. Nicky's voice was the perfect match for this routine. I went into it with a little anxiety and bundled up emotion I didn't understand. I came out of it with a peaceful, calm, grateful for the day feeling. It was also a great total body stretch.

My first time returning to my mat since giving birth last year. Sweet, balanced, and necessary. Nicky's gentle guidance and permission-giving -- and even her soft, relaxed giggles -- were a gift.

I am somehow new to yoga (let's say I am re-discovering it) and this has been my first video on doyougawithme.com. And I'm sure this is not going to be my last one. Thank you Nicky.

Letting go of grief was precisely what I needed today, but even if I didn't have that in my heart, this would still have been a blissful, peaceful whole-body meditation. I barely noticed the passage of time.

I LOVE Nicky's videos. I do them regularly and they're my home base, my go-to's. It seems like this is a different video than what used to be here. Instead of "Reclaim Your Joy" it's about grief. Is it possible to get the old video back in this place and ALSO have the grief video available separately?

I miss the old one!!! and also welcome lots of new Nicky, whatever she wants to create.

Man, I'm really disappointed about the switch.

I had stepped away from my practice for a while and I'm not entirely sure why. Today, my body just told me, you need to reconnect with your mat. I found this class and while grief healing was not my main intention for practice, this class was exactly what I needed to reconnect with my mat and my body. Thank you so much for this wonderful, healing class. I will be doing this again.

It's been about three weeks since my last yoga practice. My yoga teacher is no longer teaching during the time I can make it and she teaches a very meditative and therapeutic approach. It's so much more rewarding for me and there are no classes out there like it. I found this website determined to start a yoga practice today. Hope has arrived, hurray, in finding this amazing website. I am so grateful to Nicky for being so kind and gentle in my first practice on here, she is an amazing teacher and I totally love her approach to the gentle yoga and breathing technique she uses. I am forever grateful and blessed to be introduced to this website and excited!! Hugs!!

Being stressed, anxious and tired today, this truly soothing and calming class is exactly what I needed. I feel so much better, calm and relaxed and will continue to turn to this class again and again. Thank you sooooo much Nicky for this class and also your little “giggles” which made me smile throughout. :)))))

I just wanted to take time to thank you, Nicky, and share a little about what came up for me. First of all, a healthy dose of cynicism- which is how I knew I really needed to keep going. I'm very glad that I did... Once I moved past that resistance, I really felt myself connecting to my grief. This surprised me but it was refreshing to be surprised. I've done a fair amount of work with my negative emotions and I didn't expect to find the sadness in my body today nor did I expect to feel it so viscerally. When I did, it was in my heart, my lungs and it felt very heavy and dark... but it came with a wave of this very light feeling, a lot like gratitude. Your practice helped remind me that our grief can be our greatest gift. It can teach us about ourselves, our bodies and the shared reality we all live in. I would be curious as to your thoughts on this Nicky, or anyone's here at doyoga with me, but either way the reflection and the space you provided are a very special gift to me, so thank you.

I'd like to leave this quote here. It has been with me for a long time on my journey. I was reminded yet again of it's potency today.

“The deeper that sorrow carves into your being,the more joy you can contain.
Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?
And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?
When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” --Kahlil Gibran

I love this class. I was kind of depressed and tired and didn't want to do it....but after the hour (and during it) I felt wonderful!
Helps for my chronic back pain as well.
I love this class!

I've done three of Nicky's videos so far, and I love them. I've cried during every single one. The tension relief, guide to breathing and letting go of negative feelings and emotion is exactly what I need. I plan to do this video every morning to help center myself and release any tension before the start of the day.

I have been struggling with depression and anxiety for several months after a bad breakup and this class... holy cow. I didn't know yoga could have this effect on me, but nearly every time I do this class, I have a sobbing catharsis (which sounds terrible, but is exactly what I need), especially during some of the hip stuff. I leave it feeling cleansed and lighter. I plan to do this every day until I've left my baggage behind.

And if you're not in a terrible place, emotionally, this is just a great, gentle yoga class for unwinding. My mother is in her late 70's and has back problems, as well as a lot of stress and I am going to get her to to this with me when I visit. I think it would be easily accessible (or at least adaptable) for all levels.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

This was such an amazing practice, that when you announced you were going into final relaxation pose I found myself saying, "Already?!"
Thank you very much Ms. Jones, I will definitely revisit this video again.

This class has become the one I turn to during any stressful moment in life. A difficult move away from loved ones or losing a job, this class has helped me realign with my intentions and release the negativity that surrounds during those rough times. Thank you this cleansing experience!

Thank you so much Nicky. As Autumn beckons in the southern hemisphere, and my partner is due to go away for some time soon, this class is just perfect. So much space and allowance to grieve and heal. Your gentle voice and soul have blessed me.

Never have been into yoga, but after my mom passed a few years ago I have been searching and searching for relief. After Nicky's class I had instant results. I just wanted to say that she is incredible at what she does. Thank you!
