I really wanted to love this class. Unique sequencing. I was looking for something slower today and hoping for certain postures from this class. Personally, for a 43 minute class, I didn't expect 11 minutes of intro before om and movement and the same length cool down. Definitely builds some heat during the 20ish minute slow flow, but this structure would be better suited for 60 minutes in my opinion. Didn't love the standing splits with reverse prayer or the early eagle pose. Overall a nice sequence (Sarah's always are) but not one I will repeat.
Great class. My shoulders and back feel immediately better!
Really helpful for releasing tension in my neck and shoulders. Thank you!
Great for upper back. Very relaxing practice.
Nice combination of standing poses and stretches.
I had a lot of trouble hearing the instructor over my ujai breathing.
Good for an early morning practice. Thanks!
Wonderful class! Greatly enjoyed it.
Very well paced. Very relaxing. Thank you Sarah
Thank you for the mental guidance Throughout the class.
Perfect for when you Are stressed and want to move and want the full meditative experience. Thank you!
Great flow to close out my Friday. Definitely a little bit easier than most level 2s but I worked up a sweat and feel so open. Thank you!
There were some comments saying that this class was miscategorized as level 2 and should be level 1. I always do level 2 classes and I found this class challenging, so I think it is correctly level 2.
Great class to start the day with. Lots of gentle heart opening and focus on expansion. Still broke a light sweat. Feeling peaceful.
Sarah is always so wonderful. Her instructions are clear and powerful yet have a sense of gentleness and safety. Really sweet slower moving flow, great for opening the upper back. Felt very grounded afterwards.
Excellent, “lighter” practice that opened up my shoulders and upper back. Sarah is a pleasure to listen to; calming and supporting instruction.
Thank you, Sarah. I miss seeing you in SF.
HOPE YOU ARE WELL.
Hi! Miss you!!!!!!!
So glad I came back to this class. Definitely helped to unload stress and get better in touch with myself underneath the heavy emotions. Thank you 🙏🏻
This is my first online yoga practice. I was looking for something calming, especially for evening, pre-rest practice, and this was just perfect. Sarah's voice is lovely and calming, and her teaching style is soothing. Thank you!
This was a wonderful experience. And I disagree with those who think it should be rated as level 1 because it has nothing to do with the difficulty of the poses but rather the comprehensiveness of the experience that the instructor is leading one to get to. Thank you Sarah.
I feel much lighter after a heavy day with this gentle class. Thank you!
My favourite so far well balanced and let me unwind
I would say that this class can be rated as level 1 due to: 1. Poses 2. Flow. The class seemed like an easy flow with nothing much challenging. The warm up and closing sequence is longer than needed with a lot of talking. Its a great class for somebody who is new to yoga and wants to get into a regular practice.
Very thorough class. Well balanced with soothing instruction. I felt like the instructor of this class eloquently and gracefully said exactly what needed to be said and nothing more; certainly left me feeling inspired and with "less stones" in my "backpack". Thank you!
Lovely short class to destress, open the heart, and unwind. This could also be rated as level 1, as there weren't any particularly challenging poses or sequences. Second the mention of needing a blanket or bolster for the opening.
Absolutely keeps its promise and 'hits the spot'.
Great class! Very thoughtfully taught with a lovely message. I absolutely feel less stressed and indeed a bit lighter than before this practice. Thanks Sarah!
One thing to mention: you also need a blanket or towel (in addition to blocks and a strap) for the opening portion of class.
Good practice working many parts of the body (shoulders, hips, core, hamstrings). The beginning and ending were much longer than I wanted as I don't need a 5 minute savasana when the practice is not very long.
Practice intelligently, safely and strongly in this class that aims to bring out the mental and physical aspects of your practice.
Work towards compass pose, which is a big IT band, hip and hamstring opener.
