I'm 35yo and have been doing yoga for years. This gentle upper body stretching felt great this morning when i was feeling sore from yesterday's workout.
This class is straight-forward (no yoga jargon used here) and accessible to everyone. As David mentions, owning a mat and strap is not necessary, since you can replace the strap with anything rope-like that's about 4 feet long.

Found it to be a gentle, yet effective class to stretch the shoulders and neck

Excellent session for osteoporosis. I continue to be amazed at how powerful seemingly simple stretches can be! I am delighted to be receiving guidance on the correct way to move my body to help it be strong, flexible, and relaxed.
