Class Description: 
Back and core strength are vital aspects of an overall well being, from athletic performance, to avoiding pain as you get older, to doing things in your life that are physically demanding. Anastasia helps you strengthen the muscles of your core and back in a thorough way that is accessible to almost any beginner student, yet a challenge to all levels. She mixes in a few great releases for the lower back and hips so the practice feels balanced and complete. The music playlist is provided by Yogitunes.

Beginning was a little too
Mogi27 1 month ago

Beginning was a little too lengthy for me, but I loved the whole thing. It took me a while to understand what the heck she was talking about in that last twist but I think it was mostly because I was trying to do too much (I like watching her do it but I couldn't really from the position I was in). Second video of hers I've watched, so far she my favorite instructor.

twisty turny pretzel poses :)

Yep, that last pose was also pretty tricky to describe, so thanks for sticking with it!

Beautiful Beginning

This made a beautiful start to my day, and week, and my goal.
I usually challenge myself to the intermediate level classes. But, I have had a reminder, during a massage, that strong upper body and strong lower body aren't enough. So now I am challenging myself to start from the beginning strengthening my core with a goal of a healthy lower back.
Thank you for a wonderful beginning.

Hi Anastasia,

Hi Anastasia,
just to say I have had my very first yoga class( I am 71) and boy did it hurt...ouch, but as i am no longer as active I used to be and don´t get out much I thought a bit exercise in the home will do me good,eventually.
Thanks for an invigorating lesson

music?

I like Anastasia's classes. With this one, I found the music distracting, as if it were an afterthought, not in the flow of the class, especially during some of the poses like Sphinx.

Favorite!

Clear directions, pushing my capabilities but not beyond them. I am in my 60's and training for my first 5K run. Core strength is important, so I'm working hard on that. Loved the image of the glowing ball of energy. Thank you!

Thank you so much for this class. I have been unwell for awhile and as someone who used to practice yoga, I knew I had to return to practising, but was nervous as my body is just not in shape at all. But with the gentle class, although challenging after such a leg break, together with your very soothing voice has made me feel so much better today. I will definitely be joining you again. I send you many blessings. X
