I've been practicing yoga for years, and this was my very first time getting into compass pose. I laughed out loud in pure delight. What a great class and a fantastic teacher. I've also really enjoyed the other classes I've done with Andrea on here so far, and I would absolutely love to see more added from her!

I'm continuously so impressed with Andrea's teachings. Fantastic guidance to compass pose, and a real opener for the opposite shoulder when building into compass pose, which I didn't know I needed but feels amazing. Thank you.

It was nice doing this class after being extremely tense in my hips. The compass pose is a bit challenging, but the class is constructed well leading up to the pose and makes it less intimidating to try it out! Great class! Thank you!

Parivratta (revolved) Surya (sun) Yantra (instrument- dial in this case)= Parivratta Surya Yantra = Revolved Sun dial.
Thank you, Andrea, for very thorough and deliberate walk thru to Parivratta Surya Yantra.
