I am so thankful for this class. Having a large chest is a (pardon the pun) huge problem that I've contended with for my many years of yoga practice. Until the recent acceptance of "bigger body" yogis, its been an issue that I've quietly found a way to work around for most poses. Its hard for people who are long and lean to understand the unique challenges those of us on shorter and wider side face during a twist or a forward bend. I'm looking forward to more from Helen!

This is what I've been looking for!

Thank you for adding this class. It's perfect, and I'm hoping you will build on this series. It was comfortable and effective while it offered modifcations for plus size people. I so appreciate it!

I'm so excited to see this

I'm so excited to see this series coming out by Helen! As a physician I struggle to find resources to share with my patients that are actually reasonable for them. If they can't do so many of the poses because of their size, they get discouraged and quit, feeling inadequate instead of empowered! Keep it up!

I absolutely loved this class

It's been too long since I made peace with my mat in the morning and was thrilled to find this video. The local terrain comforted me too as I'm a Kitsap, WA Resident. Please post for videos Helen. <3

Great Slow Practice

I really enjoyed this class! It was a nice stretch after a weekend of lots of walking hills on vacation. I am looking forward to more and maybe longer classes. It was nice to hear someone have some of the same issues with their body that I do.

We need more yoginis and yogis of all body types teaching all levels of yoga so everyone can feel that this is an inclusive practice. This is a great start!

Lovely practice, thank you!
