I loved this class so so much. It was comforting and challenging, all at the same time. Anastasia has a beautiful, clear and calm way of presenting each pose, and the transition to each pose. Excellent camera work on this video, too! I appreciated the different angles to see how to align properly.

Wonderful Music

Thank you for a great class, Anastasia. The music is also wonderful, relaxing and energising at the same time. I am coming out of a migraine, and the slow pace of the poses, your clear instructions and the music have left me feeling so much happier. I will look up for the music to play during my recurring migraines.

Migraine
Gaynor Walters 2 months ago

Hi Isabel as a fellow migraine sufferer I hope you don't mind my commenting. Have you done a food diary? This was the best advice I was ever given. Being a sufferer of basalar artery migraine I know how debilitating they can be. Medication drs more medication never being able to control anything etc etc..... My food diary showed me exactly what was affecting me and I also discovered that I have an intolerance to wheat which is a cause of migraine too. I am now much happier avoiding the foods which affect and my migraines are few and far between. Good luck in finding a healthy solution!

This was very good but also very hard as I lack strength, but it helped me see what I need to work on. I'll definitely be coming back to this as a staple to help build strength. Anastasia, you have become one of my favorite teachers on this site!!

squatting

good class but i couldnt manage the twisting round my leg in a squat. I couldnt squat with my feet flat either so Im guessing that's a flexibility thing!

Just what I needed
Becky in George... 5 months ago

I always choose classes on the intermediate level; challenging myself, and working upwards. But its good to back off and realign. And this class had it's challenges in that my arms seem not to be long enough to achieve that bind and I always have balance issues that were addressed here. This was well taught and a very beautiful class.
I wonder, are there classes with a focus on balance and balancing poses?
Thank you Anastasia. I will look for more of your classes.

Balance
David Procyshyn 5 months ago

HI Becky. Yes, we have a lot of classes that focus on balance. We don't yet have a filter for that, but for now the best thing to do is to enter 'balance poses' into our search box. You'll come up with a lot of classes that you can browse through and try.

Thank you so much, Anastasia - that was the most gorgeous class with magical spine stretches that I didn't even know I needed! I feel waaay more limber now. The first DYWM class I ever did was one of yours and I always love coming back to you. :-)
