This class was perfect for my body, mind and spirit after a fun but intense ski trip. I felt deeply relaxed afterwards and my sore muscles were happy

Just came back from a ski trip, behind on my running but wanted to connect to my body with this great yoga routine. Not too long, not too short but activated my glutes and hamstrings. Lovely

I'm recovering from hip surgery and this was perfect for me. It was gentle pace and not too much for starting my practice again. Thank you. <3

Lovey and gentle without being overly easy. Just what I needed!

This is one of my go-to classes, especially when I need to feel centered, grounded, and de-stressed. It hits all those places that I tend to hold my tension, and there is just the right frequency of pose change that my mind doesn't have too much time to wander.

I am 75. I love the 30 day challenge beginner level. I look forward to my yoga class everyday. The best part is the progression of the classes. I always feel improvement never soreness. Thank you for your hard work.
