Never in a million years would I think I could attempt this pose with my super tight hips--Andrea showed me it is possible with proper prep! My hips feel amazing and I have a new (attainable!) challenge - bookmarking this class right now.

Absolutely fantastic class and what a brilliant teacher Andrea is! She very carefully and clearly takes you through the poses leading up to the compass, warming you up gently and stretching into all those delicious places that need opening up in order to get into the pose. More classes from Andrea please! She is wonderful! xx

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.

I'm not a pretzel-y person, but I liked this class! Great hip opening along with clear instructions made even the most challenging parts doable. Andrea has joined my list of favorite instructors! Thank you and thanks to David for continuing to add excellent teachers and great content!

Wow. I had never gotten in to some of the prep poses before this let alone the peak pose. Fun!

Amazing pose with great instruction to get me there. I feel so open and fluid at the moment that I could bounce like a trampoline --without a trampoline. :)

That was just what my body was asking for and so satisfying! My hips are now vibrating with loosened energy. Thank you.

Great class! She is very clear and helps you to understand where in the body you're feeling the pose. Will search out more classes by her.

Love this class - Andrea's instructions are so concise and easy to follow, I was able to go deeper into familiar poses than ever before. My hips thank you immensely, Andrea!

While I was not "warmed up" before, I really did not need to be. Andrea took me through a sequence twice before compass and boy, did it feel amazing. I got farther along in compass than I have to date! And, the warm up / sequences leading up to compass are poses and sequences that can be used for other peak poses. One drawback.... No corpse/savasana so if you want / need that, you will want to have another video just for that or just do it on your own, free standing.

Thank you!!!!!!!

Loved it! Andrea's instructions are very clear and make it easy to move into the poses. "This is about as pretzely as you can get in yoga".

I loved this flow! It really opened up hips and loosened up a runner's tight calves and feet - thanks!
