Open up your shoulders and hip flexors as you work up to urdhva dhanurasana, a giant backbend that will leave you feeling confident and energized. Recommended props: 2 blocks, 2 blankets

This class was very relaxing and enjoyed the backbends. Wish there had been some poses dedicated specifically to the hips though.

There was a slow easy pace to this class that I enjoyed with nice sequences. But, after all the back bending I added some twists of my own. And although the pranayama was nice, I also had to add my own chavasana.

I'm often guilty of queuing up classes of teachers I practiced with when I lived in Santa Monica. Glad I tried someone new to me today though. This was a lovely class Lakshmi and I'm happy you are now on my radar! <3

This was a very gentle class - nice for days when you are low on energy. I really enjoyed the pranyama practice at the end...I wished all of the classes included it!!!

Excellent practice. I love the even tone of Lakshmi's and guidance and the pacing. Challenging yet with enough space to breathe and develop awareness.

Big fan of this one. Ill come back to it for sure! A great practice for when you need some extra energy AND need to work on opening up!

I enjoyed this practice a lot. It does not have a centering moment in beginning of practice, so if you wish to have that, you should do so on your own. I loved the pranayama at end of practice.
