Wonderful session

I'd like to say Thank You, Anastasia.
I'm a really beginner and I have serious problems in all my back, However after this session, even meanwhile I've experimented as whole my body was releasing. Just focusing in my breath, feelings and enjoying so much every movement.
Thank you very much.

What a powerful session both physically and emotionally. My back feels relaxed, my body connected from head to toe, and my heart is full from your kind and gentle words. Bless you for this, Anastasia!

So lovely!

Anastasia is a wonderful instructor... clear directions, lovely encouragement, a good sense of when to talk and not during the more restful poses. This class in particular is excellent!

This was the very first experience in many years that I tried Yoga - getting older and having health issues pop up has reminded me that I need to love myself and take care of my body. This was amazing!

Beginner vs. Intermediate Chanllenge

After working through the intermediate challenge, I decided to do the beginner. I am finding that these videos build length and flexibility as well as helping me to slow down. I am glad I made this decision.

First class I did on the site

I was so nervous about starting a class. I have a bulging disc in my lower back and a lot of things hurt it. During one of the poses I actually had to stop and take a break because my legs started tingling. I love that I don't have to look like an idiot in class stopping or asking questions. I've done yoga twice before and both times I liked what yoga stood for, but the instructors were horrible. This class was great, perfect pace, perfect instruction and very calming voice. def a 5/5 experience. My back feels better already!

I thoroughly enjoyed this class, my only limitation involved the deep squat as I couldn't get comfortable with my arms inside the legs. Hoping this will come with time as I had my hand behind me on the floor. Thank you so much!
