I usually watch videos before

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!

expected more strengthening

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

Perfect following foot surgery
cametrac 2 years 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.

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 4 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.
