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!

Thank you for this! I am so glad that you are directing your patients towards something that meets them where they are. I have encountered more than one doctor who has offered nothing other than the suggestion I lose weight (it's frustrating to say the least!). We need more people like you who are moving people towards a space of empowerment. You keep it up too! :)

I absolutely loved this class

I absolutely loved this class! I am just getting back into yoga and this was just right. I look forward to seeing more classes from you. I felt so refreshed afterwards.

Welcome back to yoga!

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

Thank you for this! I totally understand the challenge of making peace with your mat. It is still a challenge for me, even though I love this practice so much. Sometimes the big win is simply landing on the mat, regardless of what happens afterwards. I'm so glad that you enjoyed this video and since you posted (pardon my slow response, btw!), there are more videos from me on the site. Enjoy!

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.

Thank you!

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the class and could relate to the body issues. Whenever you take a class (mine or somebody else's), remember that the practice is there to meet you where you are, not the other way around. So you can always feel empowered to modify in any way that you need. Thank you for your comment and I hope you enjoy more of my classes on this site!

Beautiful Morning Practice

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!

Thank you for your comment and keep supporting diverse yogis! It truly does help more people find their way to this practice. More videos from me are on the way. Enjoy!
