Super class - really creative and I loved the fluidity it encourages both in movement and as a consequence fluidity in thought. Thank you Andrea!

This is a really effective class and for me, very approachable. It's a wonderful series of hip opening poses and wonderfully paced. Thank you, Andrea!

I love the organic flowing movement in this class where my body goes where it can and wants to go. So nice after several days of long hikes. Thank you Andrea!

Ya wow. Beautifully crafted. Different. Flowing. I love all your classes here so much and this one really sets the bar for creative inspiration. The added playlist gives for a really great experience. I'm partial to a couple teachers and because of this particular class I'm happy to add Andrea as another regular go to. Please...more of these. :)

I love this class! Fluid practice with great hip stretches and a bit of shoulder opening too. Yum!
I would love to see a full length class of this style from Andrea with even more hip and heart opening :D

I'd been missing a good stretch in my hips and shoulders and this class definitely delivered, especially with that shoulder stretch in goddess. Quick but really complete and dynamic. Probably will be coming back to it.

Unique hip openers in this one. Helps loosen tight shoulders too. I have to agree with an earlier post (Sonia) - some spots in the first 5 minutes felt rushed to me, but
the rest was great. Thank you.

This one is suuuuch a great class for hip openers, stretching, and even a couple of fun standing poses. Got a nice sweat in under 30 minutes too. This is maybe the fifth class of Andrea's I've taken thus far, and each time I am surprised by the sensations of pleasure I feel in my muscles, even in asanas I usually find hard to access or even painful. Andrea, your gentle guidance is incredible!

Absolutely adore this class! I’ve had a bit of a sore lower back lately from gardening and this class with all its undulations and waves was just delicious! Great hip openers too and a fantastic unique flow. Felt amazing after this, another incredible class from this incredible teacher. Namaste Andrea

First time with this instructor. Best hip opening stretches I have done. Her flow is very different which makes it more fun, added to my bookmark for sure. Thank you!

I love that Andrea introduces movements in her classes that I have never done elsewhere. I found the transitions in this class a little, "jagged" (for lack of a better word), even though the movements themselves were nice and flowy.

I absolutely loved the flowy jumpyness of the flow. It felt light hearted but concentrated.
Beautiful stretch post run.

Absolutely wonderful and uniqe practice! I am 59 years old (a yoga practitioner since 17 years) and find this set extremely beneficial for releasing my neck, shoulders and hips. I wish there where more flowing sets like this since on DYWM since I am less and less drawn to static movements with long holds. Thanks Andrea!!

I haven't tried out a new teacher in a while, and I'm glad I did! This was a fun, energizing class that I used as a break from working at the computer. I feel great!

I saw the word ‘backbend’ in the description and almost didn’t do this class because I envisioned a full wheel pose - which I cannot do because of my wrists. I decided to try it anyway and so happy I did. I have never done a class with Andrea but now I will certainly be looking for more! Thank you for a lovely morning practice!!

1/23/21. This felt really good - the fluid, intuitive motions really helped me to drop some anxiety and bring ease to my body. Will definitely come back to this one for a short, effective tension release. Thanks, Andrea!

My hips thank you Andrea. Fun class with undulations to loosen my spine and hips. Andrea shines from the inside out. Good class, I will seek more Andrea classes.

Really liked this class and all the undulations and rippling! It ended a bit abruptly for my liking, child's pose to savasana to hero's all in the space of what felt like only a minute, so I just stayed in savasana and it was all good. Love all of Andrea's classes :-)

Such a lovely way to start my day. I didn't listen to the music that went with the class, and I was treated to the sound of the waves ebbing and flowing -- the perfect accompaniment to this practice. Thank you, Andrea, for sharing this.

This short practice felt so, so good. It imparts a great sense of fluidity in a short period of time. The music really helps with that, too. This is one I will come back to next time I find myself with a sticky feeling.
