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: Hatha Yoga, Gentle Yoga

Thanks for your comment, Nadomom. As a result of it, this video popped up when searching DYWM and concussion. I will give it a go! I’m so anxious to move my body again.

I was caught off guard again

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

I did this on my lunch break and it was just the right thing!

Good for off balance days

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 1 year 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.
