This beginners yoga class is great for people who are just starting out with yoga, seniors, or anyone who is looking for a gentle stretch class. It moves through a series of poses that stretch mainly the upper body - the spine, shoulders, neck and back.


This was excellent

I have fibromyalgia and arthritis. My shoulders and hips give me a lot of trouble. This was such a good release. I will definitely be doing this again. I feel like I already have released so much tension in my shoulders and have better mobility.

Hip Stretch

Wow those hip stretches were exactly what I needed today. I will be keeping this saved for after I've been walking and I'm getting some hip pain. I feel great!

Great 'Welcome Back' class

I haven't done yoga in far too long and this was a perfect ice-breaker. Love it and will be taking it again.

Great stretch for when I

Great stretch for when I haven't exercised in a while (i.e. months). Not my favourite type of yoga though; I prefer something a bit more dynamic that gets my heart pumping a little.

Excellent class for beginners
Thisni Caza 1 year ago

Excellent class for beginners, especially beginning (not especially fit) seniors, I can't lay down on the floor, but tried to replicate those stretches as best I could while seated. I've done those same stretches laying on my bed, and may consider that as an option in the future. My only negative comment, and this comment is minor and prolly personal preference, altho the principles of color psychology are generally accepted, I think...the red background doesn't really complement the whole stretching experience, as red is the color associated with energy and aggression. I did enjoy the class and found the instruction excellent, not too fast, not too slow...will likely repeat this class for my back (thoracic) and shoulders. Thank you for this gentle, beginner class!

This was my 1st ever Yoga

This was my 1st ever Yoga session. It was easy to follow & really left me feeling relaxed. I started doing bodyweight workouts last Monday & decided to do Yoga on my off days. Looking forward to learning more.

Don't Switch just keep going with it

So I have dabbled but in all honesty am a total beginner- at first I was disappointed with the beginning stretches and almost switched to a harder class, but when it got into it I like many others who commented was glad I didn't. I feel loose and relaxed and energized all at the same time. Great stretches. Super stoked about the next one.

I wouldn't necessarily

I wouldn't necessarily consider myself an absolute beginner to yoga, but this class was a great way to give my body a good morning stretch. I almost stopped the video to switch to a more challenging class because the stretches at the beginning seemed too simple, but I decided to finish it. As the class continued I discovered stretches I hadn't considered before, and I honestly felt like I benefited from the class. It's not your typical yoga class, but it's a great starting point to receive a great stretch that your body might not be used to.
