It sounded almost like she

It sounded almost like she was reading off of a script. Stretches were ok---glad I gave it a chance but won't do this one again and Savasana was way too long

Loved this one! I am a tennis

Loved this one! I am a tennis player and can see how this will be beneficial!

Perfect following foot surgery
cametrac 8 months ago

I recently had foot surgery and am not allowed to weight bare for 12 weeks. Once my doctor gave me the okay to begin activity I found this class. It was perfect (I made some slight modifications as I can not place my casted foot flat on the ground or put any weight on it). I am a half marathoner who regularly practices yoga twice per week. I have been so lost doing nothing but keeping my foot elevated. I will be doing this class on a regular basis until I have permission to begin more active pursuits again.

Perfect!

Great stretching poses at a good pace. Relaxing and rejuvenating. Thanks!

A good yoga class for seniors or sedentary Individuls

Definately wasn't what I expected. I changed a LOT poses as this class does not cater to athletes.

not "yoga for athletes"
meganafallon 2 years ago

As an athlete, this was definitely not worth it. It was very slow moving, never left the floor and more of some easy stretching than anything. Would not recommend for anyone trying to get in even the littlest amount of work, maybe more appropriate for a cool down after an intense run/work out.

stop hitting yourself

My favorite part was Dez's face when she kept almost hitting herself in the face while doing elbow circles :p All in all a nice video, though.

Gentle Stretching
Lindagun1 3 years ago

This class was more of a warm-up and/or a cool-down, but there was no middle part. I too would consider this more pilates and just gentle stretching, than I would yoga. Everything was from a seated position. There was never a point of strengthening or heart rate increasing poses -- just mild stretching.

Not what I expected

While the class was a good stretch and the instructor was wonderful, I was disappointed. This is closer to pilates in feeling than yoga. I definitely recommend recategorizing it so that people aren't misled in the future.

Just a question
Kaoya 3 years ago

Thank you Michelle, great video !

I just have a little question, though... I am a runner and run four days a week. When would you advise me to do this class? Just before/after my runs, or on the days I don't run?

Thank you very much for all the great videos ! (the mogul muncher is now part of my post-run routine, as it makes post-run minor knee pain disappear for me)
