This class was just what I needed. I am a small scale farmer and this is the toughest part of the season, prepping beds, planting etc with only hand tools and my body feels wrecked. This was excellent. I appreciate Michelle's micro adjustments to poses I thought I knew well. Helped me push them to a deeper stretch. Thank you!

I’ve done this class about 150+ times in the last 7 years. It’s fantastic for overall stretching and joint strengthening. The matching of breath and movement is well-guided. And I will offer that it can be as easy or as challenging as an individual yogi chooses to make it. It is NOT an athletic-type “workout,” but it is absolutely a great practice for athletes of all types.

Pretty good. Like a comment above somewhere, this sequence is good for dancers. Specially now during the pandemic (it's late April 2020).

I usually watch videos before practicing and don’t get the criticism. This class looks great and as an athlete I plan on practicing this class often. Maybe if I had incorporated these stretches into my routine years ago, I wouldn’t be suffering the aches and pains and plantar fasciitis I have now. Looking forward to this class tomorrow morning!

This is a nice and calm relaxing class AFTER sports with more stretching than strengthening and veeery long Savasana.
Maybe the description hast to be adapted - then my expectation would have been different :o)

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

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.
