Anastasia challenges your core stability even more, with a more challenging pose sequence where she mixes quite a few core strength poses with great releases for the lower back and hips. Even though this class will push you, it will be deeply satisfying your whole body over.

very gentle and relaxing session. The long relaxation would be good at the end of a stressful day. I had to watch the last hip stretch again to get it as my inclination was to drop the legs opposite to what was said, although her instructions were very clear. I just needed to listen more carefully and follow them. I'll definitely be doing this class again. Thank you!

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.

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,
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

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.
