If you're having issues with the player:

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.

Equipment: Strap, Block
Style: Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga


Short but effective class I

Short but effective class I did post run. Nice because it’s on the floor and short enough so I’ll actually do it. Thanks Anastasia

Perfect Evening Revitalizer

This class was so wonderful for me today! I work a very physical job and am outdoors lifting, dragging, and moving all around. I don't have a lot of energy in the evening but I need to stretch, so a hatha class on the ground was just perfect. I loved it; I wish there were more like it!

Perfect for arthritic knees

Recovering from a flare-up of arthritis in my knees & it hurts just to stand. This was a perfect return to yoga stretching without having to put any weight on the knees. Thank you!

30 day challenge

I am loving tis challenge after not doing yoga for over 12 years. At the age of 64 it will hopefully help me to loosen up and feel more flexible again. However I am surprised that very few of these yoga sessions start with a warm up? I feel at my age it would be helpful and I'm sure lot's of others would to.

That was just perfect for today- a gentle wake up.
Thank you Anastasia.
