Sooo very relaxing. I loved this class. In the beginning I was a bit irritated with the music but as time went on I felt that this particular music helped me relax . A perfect yoga class for me. Thank you Anastasia.

Very glad I tried this class. I generally do classes at a higher level but my back has been bothering me, so I decided to do this one. I found certain moves modestly challenging and helpful for a back that has not been happy of late. Worth it.

Excellent class. I'm a beginner and a senior. I have completed the 30 day challenge and was very happy to find that I could do all the poses in this class, with some modifications. The pace was perfect for me. Anastasia's cues are clear and informed. Her emphasis is on being gentle but still working hard in the excellent strength and flexibility poses. I felt challenged but never felt rushed and appreciated her calm teaching style. Thank you Anastasia and thank you DYWM for this outstanding resource.

This was a great class! I was really nervous about doing a spinal class because of my own lower back issues but this class was really good. I liked the fact that adaptations were offered to us and the precision of the teacher too. Thanks :-)

Absolutely love this workout. I'm doing it to recuperate my back but found that this was such a balanced class of yoga flows and holding stretches. I also love that it worked core, spine, and pretty much everything.

Which means everyone. Slumped shoulders, shortened neck, tight muscles in your lower back or hampstrings... everything has to do with the spine. Anastasia combines a complete series of asanas and movements to create a complete and very nice practice. At the end of the class (and even the day after), you feel that most tension is gone and you have a better posture. Anastasia's clear and sweet voice gudes you with precise instructions and modifications. This is one of those classes I return again and again. Thank you very much!
