Such a great class to enter back into my practice after a bit of time away...Namaste Birgitte
A lovely sequence with breathing practice. I felt calm and grounded after the practice.
This didn’t feel like a level 2 thanks to your guidance. I found this one relaxing, and could keep my eyes closed for most of it. Loved the body expansion and little stories you told; the long-spine in relationships was interesting and I used the breathing into my back body on the group ride this morning. It helps calm me when cars zoom past on narrow roads. It is hard to breath through the nose on a bike because cardio creates inflammation. In the nasal passages. So that trick is so beneficial while climbing or during jams. It was funny when you praised your students because they followed directions so well. While this is virtual I felt some pride in my own learning and following. I extended savasana because I was dynamically present. Namaste.
I just love ALL your classes. Your pace, focus, and cueing, allow me to actually get center and still feel a workout. And you still make it possible to accomplish all those things in this condensed version!! I'd love more of these to make it easier to squeeze in a 45' workout in the mornings.
I agree! I just finished this outdoors on my patio with perfect weather. The ending savasana was so good! I reached that dynamic stillness each time she returned us to our heart centers. I also loved learning about how breathing into the back is relaxing. I don’t know why that is, but I felt it before she mentioned it. Really cool.
Such a great class, led by a wonderful teacher. Solid pace that allows you to connect breath and movement. Thank you, Birgitte!
Hi Kristina, Great to hear that it worked for you. Thank you so much for your feedback. Namaste, Birgitte
The pace is rare and perfect. Thank you.
Such a great, calming slow flow class. Perfect for morning. Thank you!
I really liked this class. Even though it was only sequences through sun salutations, I find that you can sometimes challenge yourself even more within the basic sequences in regards to breathe and form. I did it after a run, and it built heat without burning me out.
While she does talk a good amount, her voice is very relaxing and her words were meaningful for the practice. I would definitely do this again.
Just the right pace to built heat and also relax....
This class is definitely a level 1 class. It was slow moving and didn't include anything that wouldn't be in a beginner level class.
I was mostly relaxing and a good way to wake up the body but Birgitte made all of these awkward side comments that completely broke the zen vibe. It was worth a try but overall, not for me.
this woman went on and on during a level 2 class that clearly she was instructing level one. annoying! do not recommend.
I love this class. I find that I can let go of the mind and connect to my body in a loving way. I would love classes for pms and menstruation if that's possible.
This was great for ending the work day. I was able to focus my energy and really pay attention to the breath and get into each pose gently. Also appreciated the comments in the end about feeling the "energy" body in Savasana. Thank you!
Gentle class with a calming effect. Despite the slower pace it seemingly flew by. I didn't feel like I generated much heat and didn't break a sweat. I would consider this class more like a Level 1.5 or 1.
I did this practice first thing in the morning. I was able to build heat in a comfortable, gentle way. Thank you!
Thank you for Birgitte for this class. I have done it a few times nows and every single time I feel energized but also calm.
This was my first session with Birgitte and what a wonderful class it was. This may become my go to morning class. I sweated a little bit, but nothing crazy and I felt no only the heat in my body, but the calmness too. I loved those side stretches. Thank you Birgitte for this very well rounded class =D
Thank you Birgitte, for providing such an authentic mind and body practice. This will definitely become one of my favorites :)
Love taking your class even when I cant get there in person...
Great basic flow for quick stretch
Birgitte is the mother of Zen workouts. Having her calm and gentle voice guiding the practice in such an informative and caring way, in my own home, is a true gift. Birgitte is a priceless gem for all yogis, not matter your stage of practice. The chance to do any yoga practice with Birgitte is a blessing.
What a treat to have Birgittes gentle and wise guidance right in my own home! I love the sense of stillness, and the sacred that she brings to the practice, as well as her care about physical and energetic alignment, and her sense of humor! This was for me as it says, a [quick 35 minute] dynamic awakening through surya namaskar A. It felt good on my body. Thank you.
I have enjoyed classes with Brigitte at Yogaworks for almost ten years and am delighted to be able to practice with her at home. Her teaching is amazing and I love how she focuses on technique. Love her!
