Thank you for this class! I now understand the breath of fire. I've only received real quick instruction and didn't have a grasp on it. The breath of joy was another helpful exercise. Now I understand the value of knowing these two breathing techniques.

I enjoyed this class, especially the breath of joy. I was expecting there to be more flow than there was, more poses and movement. It was a nice change though.

He gives directions and then doesn't actually follow them, "Take 3 breaths," but when you try to get focused on your count, he starts exhaling at random intervals. Side note, for a relaxation session, you should probably have at least some focus on the neck and shoulders, or else none of your female viewers will relax. This is probably one of the least enjoyable yogis I've experienced.

A a good slow-down, mostly breathing and some stretching. I could have used more detailed instruction on the quick breathing and some possible alternatives for a few of the stretches which seemed a little deep for my rusty knees. Still, a peaceful background and probably a good one to use after a stressful day.
