Uhh huh…this was soo good lol. Thank you!
fantastic class, few postures she demonstrated were really tough!! thanks
I'll have to try this one again. Some good postures but I either felt I was always ahead of or behind the cues. Much more hip flexor stretching than I expected (which I would usually like, but I guess I'm tight today b/c I couldn't hold some poses as long as the class).
Wonderful class! I feel great! Lily is a really special teacher.
I loved this class. I feel like my whole body was given a great workout, and back felt amazing after it. I thought it would be too challenging since many people said this was level 3. I am level 2 and could comfortably do it! you can adjust back bends as needed.
Great class. Challenging and very nice pace. I agree that this class could be considered advanced 2/3 level but there options and variations were offered. Very doable and will def earmark to practice again.
Just what I needed! Learned some new moves for backhanding- Lily may be the teacher with the most bendy back that I've seen. Also agree that time went quickly and it had a nice pace.
Nice pace with good instruction cues. It was a little faster than some of the other level 2 vinyasa online lessons I have recently tried, which is exactly what I have been searching for!
Time went quickly and I feel like my whole body got movement. Even though I’d consider it level 3, it’s still very doable.
I keep coming back to this class! I love it, and would love some more like this!
The sequence was nice, but as others have said this is definitely a level 3! Sometimes the students modeled in the class didn’t even take the more advanced postures. The instruction was pretty good, although there was a bit more flowery language than I’d like for my personal taste. The instructor is great though!
I really enjoyed this sequence and loved the variations Lily proposed. I'll do this again!
lovely sequence, very much enjoyed but I agree more a L3
Love this challenging and creative sequence, but I think it is mislabeled as a level 2. Poses like hanumanasana and camel are fully instructed, but there are not many modifications offered and sometimes prop use is not instructed until second side. Make sure that you have space around your mat for wild thing and warrior 3! Will definitely do this sequence again.
Def a level 3. Very challenging!
The poses in this sequence were quite different from many of the flow classes I practice with. I really enjoyed this class and the instructor.
a perfect class to start the day. Thank you, D
Creative sequencing and wonderful heart opening!
Energizing and challenging flow that works your whole body. Really enjoyed this challenging class. Great instructor, hope she can add more classes!
This is a strong, challenging flow that gets you where you need to be for your peak backbends at the end of class. Lily's instructions are very clear and her voice is lovely.
Work on three related poses that all strengthen the upper body: cobra, chaturanga, and vasistasana.
Open up your shoulders and increase mobility in your upper back and chest in this well-rounded flow. Recommended props: 2 blocks

Strengthen your outer hips so you can avoid lower back pain in this quick, strong class.
