Andrea's gentle yet bold demeanor makes me feel confident and also comfortable in all her classes. This one was a great "focus" class on what goes into one particular, complex pose. Thank you!

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! I successfully accomplished 98% of what you instructed…
The sequences, and the way you explained each move were easy to follow and produced the results that I wanted! Thank you, Andrea and be well!

I love this class as a post run practice. I'm wondering if it's ok to do without a prior flow routine or warm-up? As in the title, it is quite refined, and targets deeply. Is it ok to do cold, just after waking?

Hi! With shorter practices, I still try to make it a full experience. And in this one, I take us through each kriya slowly so we can build up to a deeper opening. Does your body tend to be quite stiff first thing in the morning, especially in the hips? If so, maybe a quick walk to get your blood flowing...but if you are not especially stiff, you might find this a nice way to wake up! Hope that helps...
