I didn’t feel like this focused on the shoulder very much beside the opening stretch
I knew I would love this class when she told me to set up my blocks behind my shoulder blades and head. I’m so relaxed now and my shoulders are loose and relaxed.
I love this class for the morning because of the slow opening sequence followed by heat building!
The perfect full body flow! The instructions were necessary and her voice was incredibly calming. Thank you!!
My neck and shoulders feel great doing this class after another day at the computer, and I enjoyed some leg work as well. Love how the poses are held longer - giving you time to focus on and feel alignment. Thank you Erin!
I have tight shoulders so this class seemed perfect. This class was very disappointing. The instructor placed a lot of stress on the shoulders but did little to stretch them or the back from where a lot of shoulder tension originates. The sequence was monotonous (a lot of filler surya A), poses were held too long and not evenly from one side to the next, and instruction was superficial and repetitive. Not recommended if you have shoulder problems.
Slightly eccentric, but a very well-thought, challenging class. Competent, detailed, energetic instructions. Highly recommended.
Thanks Erin. Loved the class.
Wonderful class. Poses held for many breaths so you can make adjustments and work on proper alignment. Love the instructor's vibe! She gave lots of encouragement and cues to help maintain the poses. Highly recommend!
I'm confused, this is an intermediate class, but it very much felt like a beginner class where every single thing was being over-explained. This was a really good test of my patience because I found myself simply wanting the instructor to stop talking. Others may like that though. I personally find it extremely hard to focus on my breath and how my body feels in the postures when someone is constantly talking. It's like I can't get into my own head because someone is talking over my inner voice. The practice itself was great and my body feels a lot better than it did beforehand, so I'm glad I went through the flow. But I think I'd rather take another class with an instructor that doesn't over-explain every single pose.
I loved this class. I would say it's Level 2 asanas with a Level 3 mindset required. It's patient and soothing. This was my first time taking Erin and I will definitely be back. She's a smart lady.
If you have hip issues like me, I wouldn't recommend this class unless you have warmed up the hips and lower back areas. Some of the standing poses are held for several long breaths, so be aware that you may be sore in the groin areas if you're not used to that. My shoulders are definitely more open though!
Thank you for a wonderful class Erin. It was such an effective sequence to open up the shoulders - and after spinning too often, it was exactly what I needed. I didn't feel like the poses were held too long; I felt they were held at a length challenging enough mentally, but short enough to be physically feasible. Your cues were original and straight to the point without fluff. It was a great class. Namaste.
This flow did the trick in loosening the shoulders. I like the block set up in the beginning- original and effective. It’s true that there was too much talking, but it helped with maintaining proper form. Poses were held a wee bit longer than I like, again that’s personal preference. Overall, good challenging class!
Loved this class, absolutely amazing. Well done Erin, will try your other classes as well.
I have to say, i got home after a sunday at work and totally stressed...i was looking for a class and when i read some of the comments i wasn't sure i was picking the right one, still i went for it. So glad i did. This class was amazing. So challenging, but so perfect. I loved that it wasn't filled with sun salutations like some of the classes, and i loved even more that we had to hold for long in the poses...because i think most times we're just running. It's challenging but i will do it again for sure. Thank you for this class.
I really like Erin's classes in person but this class felt like way too much instruction (3-4 breaths) which followed by holding the pose for an additional 5 breaths or so. Very thorough but it was confusing for me -- was between level 1 instruction but level 3 strength and without much flow to build up heat.
Very good class - she gives intelligent cues to help you maintain proper alignment. Good use of voice. She also gives you an actual Savasana at the end.
Good sequence and flow, but holds were way too long for me. I thought it would be more flowy, but overall, it was still a good class.
My upper back, shoulders and neck were tight from traveling and this practice brought opening and release to those areas beautifully. Also gave a nice whole body work out and left me feeling grounded. Thanks!
We thought it would be a good warm up...ended up an hour practice. Great chest opening, but half way into it we were confused.
Always like Erin's commitment and focus.
The holds were too long and too much talking for my preference
I thought I would do some yoga to fix my creaky neck and shoulders that were bothering me this weekend. This did the trick! Thanks.
Well-rounded and focused practice-- definitely more sweaty and challenging than I expected based on other Level 2 classes, but that was a good thing today! As one of the previous comments said, there are points where I modified or made a pose more restful, especially toward the end. I liked Erin's enthusiasm and energy.
Thank you Erin for the great sequence. The block in the beginning really helped later in the practice to get the same feeling in the back. Also love the way you use your voice in different parts of the practice.
strong flow with solid shoulder openers. good one to pause and play around with different variations. def putting this on regular rotation.
Great class, Erin! Very challenging, balancing and energy heated practice! Thanks for all the juicy wisdom and positive reinforcement!
really good class. great adjustments, but not too many to interrupt the flow. also, great that there is no music. I can score the class with my own player if I want to.
