Get ready for a challenge in this power flow close that targets the hips and hamstrings. Recommended props: 2 blocks
What a sincere pleasure to practice with you, Jocelyn! I have been practicing alongside you in level 3 sequences since day one of "myyogaworks" (mostly as a Jesse Schein loyalist!). I have done my favorite classes so many times in the last decade I can mouth the words along with the instructor :) so lately I've been hunting down some new flows, and peeking into the level 2 videos to mix things up. SO glad I took your class today, what a lovely sequence and lovely change to be taught by you! Honestly, as a teacher myself, I have to say what might be unpopular amongst other commenters...any sequence can be made into a level 3 sequence, in my mind. It's the approach to the postures rather than the difficulty of the postures themselves (there are modifications to make asanas more challenging or more accessible, always, and I am really enjoying tailoring level 2s to a level 3 mindset). This was a perfect balance of challenging and YUMMY. Highly recommend to anyone of any level! Thanks Jocelyn, more from you please!
Great class!! Thank you!
Fabulous instruction! Fabulous class! Thank you!
great engagement and flow
Beautiful class. Simple yet profound. Namaste.
Way too much talking.
Good flow and instruction but I prefer some room for s experiencing silence
too advanced for me
Hurts so good.
Excellent class 👍🏼
loved this one!
Wonderful class, thank you!
Great hip opener!!!
Love it, perfect hip opener!
great class, i am practice every week, great for me. thanks a lot
perfect for today! thanks, jocelyn
great practice. Thanks Jocelyn
Great balance of stretching and strength!
Just what I needed! I will practice with this sequence again! Thank you, Jocelyn!🙏🏼
Great pacing and cues. Definitely keeping this in my list of “I just want to do yoga and not spend too much time thinking about finding the right class” list.
I love Jocelyn's classes. BUT the video keeps freezing, which I keep finding happens with the yogaworks home page. The live classes work, so I don't know why the recorded classes are so problematic. So frustrating.
Soooooooo frustrating!!!! I imagine they will work out the kinks quickly. Maybe you can come to a live class soon???!!! I’d love to meet you!!! I’m forwarding this info to the folks in charge of fixing this. 💜💜💜
This was my very first level 2 class, and I loved it! Jocelyn helped me to hold half moon for the first time!
Jocelyn's cues for each movement are helpful and important.
Please make some more videos, Jocelyn.
This would be a really good sequence if there was half the talking, its very distracting. If you dont mind constant talking its a well structured class.
Loved Jocelyn's instruction on getting into each pose, and the pace/flow of the entire sequence was great. My hamstrings especially are very nice and open. Not such a "power flow" class in my opinion, but awesome either way!
This practice moves along, but also has some nice places of holding poses for a little while. It's great for both stretching and strengthening. You should be warned that there's almost no silence. Also, she doesn't stay until the end of the sabasana, so you have to wake yourself up.
I have taken this class several times- I love it! It's the mark of a great sequence and instructor that I finish the class feeling stronger and calmer than before. Beautiful work Jocelyn
I very much appreciate her emphasis on the breath, using props, and going at your own pace and not having to always do the full version of every pose. I had my preconceived notions about this “power flow” but this was actually one of my favorite classes on this platform so far. I’m going to check out her other classes :)
This flow is well paced, offering a little bit of heat and great focus on the breath. My hips and hammies love it 😊 This class has become my go-to! Thank you! 💖
What a great class! I feel strong and energized. Definitely my new favorite.
How i felt after: strong, especially in the arms. Sufficiently inverted (lots of down dog time). A little sweaty but not a ton. Very open in the hips and hamstrings. Lots of pressure on shoulders.
Another great class from Jocelyn. I hope to see more of her on this site! Strong and steady pace, but relaxing at the same time.
she had the perfect balsnce between ease and effort with a genuine teaching style ( shes authentic) and lots of non preachy tips that we can all benefit from hearing advanced student or not
Jocelyn always a great class
What a slow, strong flow! Great pace, hips feel wonderful!
I'm pretty flexible, but working at a desk every day gets my legs pretty crampy. This flow was clear, strengthening and gave me the stretch I needed! Thank you!
I have perpetually tight hips & hamstrings, and this class was amazing at stretching the both out! I loved Jocelyn’s pace, instructions & cadence - thank you!💛
Calming yet perfect push to reach full potential.
Josephine's instructions were clear and her style of teaching is relaxed with no pressure to do more than what your body needs at the moment.
Lovely class - awesome instruction - definitely in my playlist.
@yogaworks, please add more classes with Jocelyn ❤️
I can't get enough of this class. I have very tight hips and pain in my lower back from bad posture and sitting at a desk all day and this has done so much to help with my pain and flexibility. I do this class at least once a week.
I was insanely tight across my hamstrings and hips before this class, but feeling amazing now. This is a strong class, but not advanced and with tons of really delicious stretching. The teacher does talk basically non-stop, but she gives good cues. If you could use some help staying focused, you'll probably enjoy it. If you are easily distracted by too much talking, this might not be the class for you.
Its on the rotation!!!
The sequence is nice, but Jocelyn spends almost the entire class talking, repeating herself. It's too much and gets annoying.
thank you for a great class, perfect to start the day
Find myself circling back to it often. Thank you, Jocelyn!
This class is perfect for me. I have a hip problem, it doesn’t like to stay in place. I do exercises from my Physical therapist to put my hip back in place, and ab work to hold it there. This flow is so perfect for my needs. I do it almost everyday.
Another amazing way to start my day!
This is an outstanding flow to help recenter during a long day on the computer. Great instructor and great flow. Hips get so tight after hours on Zoom! Thanks for keeping us sane!
A good practice to check-in with your alignment, Jocelyn has good guidance. Holding the poses builds strength for both the mind and the body. I enjoy slowing down the power flows once in awhile, as it can be more difficult to stay and breath within a pose.
Thank you! great Class!
After an ACL tear 2 years ago, I've been searching for the perfect class to strengthen and stretch hips, hamstrings and glutes without hurting my knees. I've done this class 4 times in 2 weeks and for the first time in a long time, I'm walking around without pain and stiffness. Thank you!!!!
I do not like her style, too slow too easy
She's the first teacher on this subscription that is a bit more of a flow that makes you sweat. Please reply with any suggestions for other teachers. I'm ready to end my subscription so any thoughts are appreciated.
Check out Vytas
I love this class! It has a nice combination of flow/strength and lots of opportunities for opening hips and hamstrings. Jocelyn is an excellent teacher - love her calm and positive voice and her detailed and very helpful instruction. Will be taking this class frequently and look for more by Jocelyn!
After a lot of cycling, strength training, and sitting the last few weeks, this felt A-MAZ-ING. Jocelyn is a gift--such a wise and gentle instructor. Though I wish I could take her classes in person, I am loving that I can practice from Colorado. More, please!
I agree this class offers a great opening of hips and hammies. I appreciated Jocelyn's pointers about alignment but felt, in contrast to others here that there was more talk than necessary for an intermediate class about being sensitive to one's energy level, body differences, steady breathing, etc.
Great class. Challenging but so beneficial to hips and hamstrings.
Great teaching and beautiful reminders thank you for such a juicy class ; )
that was wonderful. love the words of wisdom too. thank you.
I have been doing a lot of sitting (quilting), feels great to release the hips.
A great class to really open up and stretch the hips. I felt it was more holds than flow.
How fun it is to have the opportunity to take your class all the way from Bighorn! Love you Jocelyn! 😘
Really enjoyed this sequence. Great class. Thanks a lot.
Thank you very much for this great class!
Feel really relaxed and stretched in all the right places, instructor was very soothing and right on point!
All my favorite opening poses intelligently sequenced and well-paced. Lots of options/modifications offered. Just the right amount of talking. I will definitely keep coming back to this video and instructor.
I'm really enjoying Jocelyn's classes! I find her flows to be challenging but paced in a way that still allows for some "marination" so to speak in strong postures. I feel like I'm working, but not rushed. I'd love to see more classes from her!
I agree with the other comment or about the focus on intentional movement. The class was definitely a Level 2- for the holds more than the difficulty of the poses. I really appreciated the instruction on the varying level of each pose, the encouragement to listen to your body in making your pose selection, and the alignment cues. The instructor has a wonderful voice- not too chatty, peaceful, nice cadence. Will do again.
So glad you enjoyed your practice!!! 💜 jocelyn
This class encourages moving intentionally and balancing challenge with checking in. The way that the teacher gives the "students" in the video so much freedom to modify keeps me from identifying too much with either of them and pushing into particular variations of a pose. Thank you, Jocelyn.
So glad you enjoyed it!!! I think the more we practice, the more we tune in and listen to what we need in the present moment. Less identifying with how “deep” a variation we take, more breathing into exactly what we need right then! Namaste!!! 💜jocelyn
Work towards compass pose, which is a big IT band, hip and hamstring opener.
