Had zero issues following verbal cues offered and my right hip, which tends to give me problems, felt great afterwards. Thank you!

I love standing poses, and this practice opened my hips and hammies , but it wasn't what I am use to doing in my yoga practice. First using the wall and even though I got deeper into the stretches, it wasn't my cup of tea... Not bad, but defiantly different

I just watched Vladimir's Hip Openers. Good class but confusingly filmed. If watching while doing. When he said go to right the students went to their right which is the viewers left. Generally Iyengar teachers are trained to do the opposite of what they say so I am not used to myself having to do opposite of what in front of me.

Good class otherwise but not great for Iyengar students

Before you begin this class clear a space next to a wall. Wish I would have known this before starting since I had to stop and rearrange some furniture. Also be prepared to move your props around, especially the chair.
