Have fun with this strong Sculptworks class that works every part of the body. Recommended props: 2 blocks
Such a great class. I really enjoyed it!!! Thanks.
this is a great class and one i keep returning to when i’m looking for a real challenge. as mentioned by another commenter, there is one missing exercise. we do single-leg squats on our right leg at 8:10 as the first in a series, with bicycle crunches in between, then at around 13:35 we start the same series on the left leg, but skip the single-leg squats.
so watchers should pause at 13:35 and do the single-leg squat exercise before continuing (around 55 seconds, because the right-side goes from around 8:12 to 9:07). also, i think it would be worth editing this video to insert a 55 second period at around 13:35 (could be just a myyogaworks bumper as the visual) with audio talking through doing the exercise on the left leg.
I also was waiting for the single-leg squats on the left side, and kept thinking Maeve was going to add them in later. Thanks for providing the time-stamp so we could go back to the exact spot and switch to the left. As another yoga instructor, I'm smiling to see even a pro like Maeve sometimes forgets to do both sides:-) My students tell me right away, so that's helpful. Great class!
I love these classes!
I was expecting yoga class not aerobic
good cardio/strength balance
Maeve, I had fun doing your class, but I think you need to watch the video, see where you forgot to do the other side, and retape it. It's important to get the left-right balance.
You’re referring to the one legged squat where you also kicked towards your rear end. I noticed it was missed on the left side and added that back in at the end.
I was looking for a class that would make me sweat. This class did not disappoint!!
This class challenged me, really good cardio.A few more stretches at the end would make it perfect. I am sure I'll be sore tomorrow. I am going to make this a go to class.
Good cues so I didn't have to look at the screen and could get right into the poses. Super hard - I sweat and couldn't always do everything. I did add vinyasas when instructed to head right into down dog.
I've never taken a sculpt class before, this was great. Since TRX is not available right now this is a good alternative. Very well rounded workout that makes you SWEAT! Maeve keeps you interested and engaged. Will definitely be doing this class again.
Love love love this class. I pretty much only do yoga and I thought to broaden my horizons with this class, and so glad I did. We need more classes by Maeve and more 60 minute sessions. This class has it all and is challenging and most importantly, super fun. I love Maeve's vibe and it's just the energy I need right now. More please, MOARRRR!
What a terrific strengthening class. This will go into my regular rotation for sure. I am grateful to have classes like this available to add more strength to my yoga practice. Thank you, Maeve!
I'm a decade-long devoted yogi, but also a lifelong athlete. So this, for me, was EXQUISITE. Sometimes I really crave a more athletic experience on my mat, but I don't adore the high-impact that usually accompanies HIIT/plyo/etc. workouts. I *loved* this class. It was sequenced similarly to a yoga class, in that pistol squats are essentially the "peak pose", and everything leading up to the end prepared the body for them. I also really appreciated the timed sequences (30 second sets usually) rather than having to always count reps. Really allowed me to get into my breath, body, and the integrity of the movements. I loved this and will definitely return to it when I'm in this mood again. It's super strong but many modifications are available, highly recommend. :) Namaste!
Sara, I'm so glad this class resonated with you and you see it as a compliment to your yoga practice. Thanks for leaving your review. Namaste!
Loved the class, great body weight exercises!
As a yogi who finds some plyo and pilates classes really really difficult, this felt like a really accessible way for my specific body to get into a strengthening, sweaty place. I'd love to try more full length practices like this one!
Hi Sydni! I'm so glad you liked this and it made fitness more accessible. That's a great compliment.
Not sure why this class is offered on a yoga site, as the only poses that were yoga related very very minimal, Childs pose, down dog. It was challenging and it does get your heart pumping. There were lots of squats, and a majority of this class was great for a leg work out. Learned some new moves that I will use a lot more in my workouts. Over all a great class, but not yoga at all.
Hi Karla, this class isn't intended as a yoga practice, rather it is purposely a fitness class. I'm sorry you were disappointed it wasn't yoga, but happy you took some exercises to add to your workouts, as that IS the intention. And good news, there are so many great yoga classes on here you have alternatives! I know I'm 2 years late replying, so you've probably figured that out, but I wanted to recognize your concerns. Thanks for your feedback!
Thanks for this class! I love the challenge.
I just have one observation. I feel a negative tone when you call the girl "an overachiever" several times. It is just an interpretation, but i think there is so more positive ways to invite a student to be more humble with the practice.
Hey Sasha! Thanks for the feedback. I think my sarcasm didn't land as intended. I use overachiever as a loving way of saying GO FOR IT, while no one else has to if it doesn't work for the. Meaning zero expectation from all and also no need for anyone to be humble if it's accessible! Point taken though, words are powerful. I also see I'm two years late to responding to this. :)
This is very challenging. This is not a relaxing class. Meant to challenge even the best athletes. I work out daily and this was very difficult. If your not familiar with pistol squats maybe look them up before doing this class.
I'm glad you were challenged Lisa. I hope it was in a good way!
i thought i was in shape.. til i took this class. wow. challenging and fun.. it has it all! thanks Maeve!
I wanted to incorporate a body-weight routine into my exercise regime, and boy, this class exceeded my expectations! I was sweating like a pig! I had to hit the pause button way more than I'd care to admit. Please add more classes like this one to the list of class options.
Thank you Valereen! I hope you did it multiple times in the past 3 years and it got easier every time!
Loved this. Sweaty and invigorating. Could feel the muscles and the heart and lungs getting stronger as I moved! Thank you.
Thank you Joanna!
Maeve conducts a great workout when the weather outside doesn't allow for biking or running. It gets your heart pumping while building strength in the hips and glutes. Nice stretch at the end. Thanks, Maeve!
It's my pleasure! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Really good class, especially for the legs and glutes. Also, good cardio. I'm going to be sore tomorrow!!!
Glad you liked it. Thank you!
I've been doing this classs for over a year once a week (along with the other Maeve McCaffery classes). My body has never felt so strong! I would LOVE to see more classes like this! Such a great instructor and a challenging workout!
Thanks Stacy! Every teacher loves to hear they are responding well to a class, so thank you for sharing.
I LOVE this workout. I love doing this class about once a week to switch things up. Please PLEASE make more hour long Sculptworks videos!! Thank you!
Thank you Sara! SO glad you like it.
I'm always on the lookout for classes that provide a legitimate cardio workout, and this definitely fit the bill. And yet, it's also a really fun class! This will definitely be my go-to video for getting my heart rate up. Thank you, Maeve!!! Hope you plan to make more classes like these soon!
I needed to push myself a bit as I had been a bit lazy the last week. This is a really good push yourself workout. Unusual movements which made it challenging. I modified it ALOT, but on this cold day I still broke a sweat which shows what a good workout it is. Maeve your great. thanks,
Wow! Loved this class Maeve! cardio, strength, balance, core! What a workout.. really got my heart rate going and i worked up a good sweat!! If i can't get to you, i'll bring you to me!!!!
Good class, Maeve. Got my heart going...and I thought I had to start running again! Glad to know this is here when I need to get my sweat on. Thanks.
Hate to love you and love to hate you Maeve:) Great class. Love the challenge.
Would be nice to have more classes like this one.. Maeve is fantastic!
Great energizing flow. Awesome instructor. It's definitely my go-to video. Thanks Maeve
Great class. Would love to see some 30 minute Sculptworks classes as well. Such great variety and balance between cardio , strength and balance!
This is another energizing and empowering class by Maeve! It gets moving right away and there is a great balance between cardio and strength exercises. Please Maeve, keep the Sculptworks coming (especially the 60 minute variety)! Great way to add some variety to the Vinyasa flow practice consistent in other videos on MyYogaWorks.
Work the right and left sides of the body evenly with a different take on familiar postures in this fun and challenging flow class.
