Finally could reach my hands together as my shoulders opened! Ty
Strong deliberate flow with precision and yoga spirit. Thank you!!
One of the best classes I have taken from yogaworks. Getting back to a regular practice and my shoulders were feeling the workout, perfect break from all the shoulder work!
absolutely love these shoulder/chest opening classes. my shoulders and upper body feel so good and open. vytas is the best!
great instruction.. and great strength building.. shoulders feel brand new!
great class, enjoy the teacher
Very good instructions, but poses held too long for my liking. A bit sexist with the "girls". Overall, excellent shoulder opener class!
I was going to say the EXACT same thing with the "girls" comment. A grown man calling grown women "girls" made me actually stop midway and find another class.
Same! Just stopped it after 30min because his general attitude was not working to help me open or relax.
I liked this class. I am making my way back to normal after having a baby 9 weeks ago. My shoulders got very tight during pregnancy. This was very intense on my shoulders but good.
I am a huge fan of Vytas classes in general, but this class is a standard for me. I should learn, but I am always surprised how much better my neck, upper back, and shoulders feel after this practice. It's like magic! In addition to this, he breaks the poses down so well that I learn a lot from a teaching perspective. I especially like the challenge of the vira 3 sequence. <3 <3
I liked this video but some of his comments were snotty! "if this is confusing, there are lots of level 1 videos." Challenging class (I did it in two parts) but feels amazing.
Felt fantastic. Things I always like to know: there's no savasana. Pretty well rounded. And, like many other teachers, when he says "we're not going to do a lot of chair (or whatever) pose today", he's wrong.
I have a heavy 4 month old baby and my back and shoulders have been feeling wrecked from all the lifting, carrying and nursing. This felt GREAT!
So good after a long day in front of a computer. Great, clear instruction.
painfully good on my tight shoulders ahhhh
A very different and effective approach to shoulder opening. It's a slow burn and you almost don't realize how hard you are working until you are finished. Will be adding this to the rotation!
