Class Description: 

All of the poses in this quick but full class are on the ground; seated and lying down. Anastasia begins with a short relaxation, then moves at a nice, gentle pace through poses that target the hamstrings, hips, groin, lower back and IT band, among others. It's a great way to begin the day or complete a busy work day, especially if you are short on time.


I was caught off guard again
CristinaAurelia 3 months ago

I was caught off guard again by this video. I'm doing the 30-day challenge again, and once again I was caught without warning that this video needs a strap and block. You can see in the comments section that I suggested this four months ago. It would be most helpful if you added this to the "equipment needed" or in the intro to the video. Thank you. I hope next time that either this will be fixed or that I'll remember that it's not mentioned. :)

Thanks for reminding us and sorry it hasn't been fixed until now. We have added it to the equipment list so everyone can be prepared.

Thank you

Good for off balance days
Rnfromjmu 7 months ago

Nicely paced and good for days I don't have good balance or am feeling less comfortable with a standing routine. Agree with previous comments suggesting listing equipment in the class description or taking a pause at the beginning to gather needed items. I will likely do this class again.

Short and Sweet plus a suggestion
CristinaAurelia 7 months ago

This was short and sweet. I feel totally stretched out from head to toe, and solid. Thank you so much for your time and effort. My only suggestion for improvement is that you change the intro video to say what equipment is needed for this workout, like you do in the other videos on this site. It broke up the routine for me because I had to pause it and stop twice for the equipment - a block and a strap. Or perhaps you could edit the video description to say what equipment is needed?

Again, thank you.

A great way to spend 16 minutes. Quick, but relaxing, and it reaches the creaky parts. I certainly see myself using this on busy mornings when time is short.

Excellent Class...But Not Really 'Seated'?
Thisni Caza 10 months ago

Excellent class and I rated five stars for the overall quality, especially the instruction. I will look for other beginner classes by this instructor. Each movement was well explained, and options were offered for those who struggled with the full movement...but I couldn't do the class. My only quibble is with the title. I think the title is misleading, or maybe I had the wrong expectation? The majority of the class is laying flat on your back on the floor (so that is not 'seated')...about six minutes in the middle is sitting on the floor...which can still be difficult for those with back issues...the remainder is laying on the floor on your back. I'm not sure who the target audience is, except maybe those with balance issues? (I'm 67...so I get balance issues.) I bookmarked this video because I thought 'seated' meant sitting in a chair. If someone has lower-extremity mobility issues, he/she won't be able to do this, I don't think. I don't, I just have back issues and currently can't lay down on the floor. I hope I can return to this class someday, as the instruction is excellent and the movements really are for beginners. So if you can lay flat on your back on the floor, I would highly recommend this class.

I liked the music of the different birds in the background. Complemented the chorus of birds here.
