This is a fantastic class for those of us who sit in a chair all day. I am able to sneak it in during my lunch hour and feel refreshed and less stressed afterward. It really helps workout those muscles that get tight from sitting at a computer all day - shoulders and neck, especially. The only thing I didn't care for was the cue for keeping the belly tucked in (like when you don't want your belly to show for a picture - I feel there's enough negative reinforcement of body image out there already; I don't need it in my yoga class, too. Otherwise, though, I really like both the class sequences and Michelle as an instructor. :)

I was organizing yoga for my office, and chose this video for an easy, all-level class. Now I come back to it frequently. Although I'm capable of doing more advanced yoga, I think this class is a great workout. It reaches areas (e.g. the shoulders and upper arms) that classes often miss. As others have said, Michelle goes pretty fast, but you can take it at whatever pace you want. It's also easy to make it more challenging if you like..

Have done this class 7 times. It’s easy, but I feel a benefit every time. Would like to see more classes from Michelle!

This helps my body feel so much better. Unable to yoga on ground. Good instructor. Do several times a week between exercising. My favorite yoga class!!

Thank you Michelle Rubin, this class is a grace for my self care and healing! It appears to be a little long for me and my schedule, therefore, I do the top one day and the lower areas on the next day. Have you considered a 20 minute whole body yoga workout? Again, thank you so much for a beautiful job surrounded by so much beauty.
