Do you have any recommendations if someone has an obstructed air passage on one side of the nose? I broke mine in soccer a million years ago and it makes half of the alternate nostril breathing nearly impossible.

9/29–lovely. Child’s pose was tough on my hip but I worked through it and likely released some of the Faisal!

A wonderful class for the lower back. I feel that, the longer I hold a posture, the more relaxed I feel. Thank you, Anastasia.

I was looking for some love for my hips and legs... I feel like this class was more focused on the spine than the legs and hips. It was still wonderful though!

Second time around, great class. I found it hard to relax which shows me how much I need to do this.

Lovely class but would classify it as beginner I rather than II.

Lovely class, thank you. The music is not too intrusive and suits the relaxing mood.

Thank you! this class was just what I needed, the guidance and music is blissful. I usually have a very yang practice, but I’ve been struggling with a cold and my mental health too this last week. I feel so happy to be in my body and full of joy after this class. Namaste.

This class is a series of lovely stretches. When in child's pose, Anastasia's voice was quite garbled and after that the music was too loud for her soft voice.

This was a perfect practice for letting go. I have a very yang practice and needed to sink deep into my hips and back and let go of some stuck emotions that I had felt building up. In child's pose, everything flooded out - my poor yoga mat was soaked with tears but it felt so good and so necessary to just let go.
Thank you so much - your lovely healing voice and energy really helped me feel nurtured, which is what I needed in order to release.

Namaste

...at the end of a hot day !! Thanks Anastasia ! The sound could be a little better though, it's saturating when you are close to the microphone.

Great class - just wanted to point out for people with knee issues looking at this class, there is an extended child's pose, so I found it handy to have my small cushions ready for under and/or behind my knees for extra padding and reduced compression on the joints.

I have been looking for something like this. A lot of the yin videos on youtube are much too strenuous. I made the bolster out of two blankets and it worked wonderfully. Thank-you!

I was quite sick for over a week and was not able to get my yoga in ( had a sinus infection and found that even just a downward dog caused my head to want to explode). After a week and a half of no yoga I noticed I was having some pretty sever sciatic discomfort and found this practice and have been doing it once to twice a day for a few days and am just about good as new! Thank you Anastasia!

After a long day on my feet at work this class not only made my back feel wonderful but has given me a feeling of peace too. Perfect for when you want a deep relaxation after a hard days work.
