Great class, thanks. And the sound was fine.
Gentle but thorough, great quick full practice. Just what I needed today!
Mild and gentle for the intermediate
Too fast and confusing...
Great quick workout, complete
Agree that this felt like a level one, except the instructor gave a lot of options for advancing without explaining them very well. Also, you need a strap for this—not a block!—and the description doesn't mention it.
Really nice for your shoulders! I felt that , with the exception of some stretches near the end, it was mostly a level 1 class
Nice upper body stretch for the morning!
Wonderful class with great instruction on breath to movement. Lovely, thank you.
The pace is just I wanted thank u!
Good class but frustrated b/c the sound quality was so glitchy. Hard to do some of the poses when you aren't in a position to see the screen and can't really quite make out what she is saying.
I loved this class! Just what I need. Thank you.
I absolutely loved this! Very relaxing & helpful. Thank you for such a wonderful class!
Volume is really low. I thought that this was really more for beginners, level 1. The moves were low impact. The class was kind of boring.
I liked this session and have done many of your other sessions.
The volume was even lower on this video than the others. I think this was really good but could not hear it. Have extra speakers too! Please turn up all of your great yoga videos so that we can hear it on the mat. Namaste
I have to agree with others that this class moves a bit quickly and the volume is oddly low. But the sequence is lovely - it combines a few sun salutations with externally rotated standing postures, forward folds, plenty of shoulder openers, and side stretches. I found that connecting my laptop to my TV and using the TV's speaker system helped with the volume. I also opted to stay in some poses longer than the models, which solved for the speed issue.
Beautiful! Thank you!
I really like the flow and stretches, but I found that the pace, especially in the first 10 minutes or so is just too fast. I could hardly get a single breath in, and the pose was already starting to change. Probably should be a 35min class for this flow.
you want a strap for the first pose in addition to the recommended block!
Some really nice postures and holds!
Great deep shoulder stretch and opening, excellent instruction.
Perfect for what I wanted today. Thank you! Love your instruction and will seek you out moving forward!
Less of a flow, but great poses to target the upper back and shoulders. They feel amazing after this class.
Loved this class! It wasn't too long or too complicated. Had solid instruction and gave people easier options if needed. Appreciated how easy to follow it was.
I too had a problem hearing very well. She seems a little nervous at first, speaking quickly and softly. The pace was a little too quick. But it is still a nice practice!
Great quick session. Some of those twists had me stretching parts I didn’t even realize needed stretching. Maria’s voice was soothing and personally I didn’t have any hearing problems. Thanks Maria!
My neck and shoulders are usually so tight that I lose range of motion. This class is awesome. I feel so much better. I would love more classes from this instructor. I did not have any issues with the sound, assuming this was fixed. Thank you!
would have enjoyed it more if I could hear it better
Hard to hear this teacher. Bump the audio up and repost please
This was a great and short class for the back and shoulders. I really enjoyed the flow and would love more classes by this calm and good instructor.
I enjoyed this quick practice that did a great job stretching my upper back and shoulders. The instructor offered nice options and a strap is useful. I'll be repeating this one!
Great juicy stretching and strength-building for upper back an shoulders. However, it requires a strap, not a block. I look forward to more classes with this instructor!
i found it boring and hard to hear
I had trouble hearing as well. I think this instructor could enunciate a little better and slow her sentences down a bit. Otherwise, a very good sequence.
Was a good short stretch for shoulder and upper back, but the volume quality was very poor.
The volume in many of the videos of yogaworks are not very good.
This makes it hard to hear the instructions as you do the postures.
Had the same problem when I first started Yogaworks. Get external speakers for your computer, and it's not an issue.
I have external speakers and still can not hear it!
Did anyone have a problem with the volume level?
I did not have any trouble with the sound.
