Class Description: 

This is the first of a series of two classes that prepare you for a yin pose called snail, or karnapidasana. It's a yoga posture that requires a significant amount of flexibility in your back, particularly your lower back and neck, so it's important to progress toward it slowly and carefully. This is Satiya's special skill, and you'll find this yin yoga-like class to feel wonderfully delicious, rejuvenating and releasing for many parts of the body.

This class was a practice in patience. I typically like vinyasa classes. It was good for me to slow down and the hip stretches were excellent. Seems like there were a few poses where we only did one side for a long time and neglected the other side. I felt a little uneven. a good challenge nonetheless.

In its simplicity, it was quite a challenging class for me... It seems like my body was not used to work on these parts of my body. I feel like I need to do this class a few times again to get my body use to it. I enjoyed the challenged though. Thanks.

I just finish this class and it was wonderful. Love her and the way she speaks I can fully understand. I have some problems in my waist and thighs since I had radiotherapy . It hurts when I exercise but I try to be in the same position but in a comfortable way to work the area as she does. Love it. Namaste Sativa.

It's a Satiya class, so of course it's excellent. I'm watching both my internal and external practice grow with Satiya, which is such a wonderous thing.

That being said, I think the thumbnail on the front page is not accurate, unless we did a wide legged forward fold that I completely forgot about.

Great class
