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.

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.

Incredible hip and chest opening. A true journey. Guidance provided gave a real opportunity to open and experience a slight edge. Thank you!

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

Peak poses

So excited for the new peak poses series that are coming along! :D

Will try this one tonight, Satiya is a great instructor and I've been including more and more yin into my practice lately, as I have upped my triathlon training significantly. Slowing down feels so good.

Thank you DYMW, as always, keep up the great work!

An "edge" beginner's class

This was a very challenging yet releasing class. It opened my hips more than I anticipated in addition to allowing my knees to talk to me and let me know I have some issues there.
Overall, a great class that I will do again.
