Thank you, Helen! That class was just lovely, you hit on so many tight areas in such a short amount of time.

Lovely class! It's so refreshing to have a yoga instructor acknowledge and make suggestions for working with a bigger, rounder body. The pose sequence is great for working out the kinks caused by my bad posture.

Thanks for the lovely class with some sweet stretches- it was perfect for me today, as I'm trying to give a lower body injury some rest but I'm addicted to practising every day! P.S. I was mesmerised by your graceful arms the whole time.

Good for you for keeping up your practice and allowing yourself to modify for healing. This can be such a challenge for people, especially when they are used to a certain type of practice each day. My graceful arms and I appreciate the comment and wish you a speedy recovery! :)

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!
