"The future is an illusion." Wonderful practice to remind us to stay in the present moment. Lovely class Mia. Thank you!
Great practice, too much talking for me…again, for me.
Thanks for sharing
Great practice. Mia is a phenomenal teacher. Just the right amount of instruction, reminders of breath and listening, and challenge.
Feel sweaty, grounded and peaceful. Lovely!
Mia, you really do have the ability to re-ground me and remind me that life's stressors are simply illusions. Thank you for sharing yourself and your wisdom with us. I appreciate you immensely. Namaste.
I am new to Yogaworks and luckily found Mia's on demand classes immediately. It is as if she can see me as her timely reminders correct my position and make all the difference #nohidingplace : )
I love Mia's classes and her instuctions which combines all aspects of yoga and prepares our mind and body for meditative practise. Thank you Mia!
DITTO!!! Such a great class! Thank you Mia!
I really appreciated Mia"s instruction on the Sutras, as well as her spot-on guidance through the asanas. I feel that I will carry these 3 sutras throughout my day-be more present, quiet the committee in my head, and roll with changes-with more humility and self-compassion. I will also be more able to bring these teachings into other yoga classes and any other physical exercise that I do, as well my emotional/spiritual "exercise." I feel stronger physically and emotionally. Thank you, Mia!
My daughter and I specifically seek out Mia Togo's classes because of her motivational speaking, the psychological and emotional aspect, the meditative element she brings to the physical practice of yoga, In addition to being excellent exercise, it's that intangible combination of mental and physical movement, her expertise and kindness which help to distinguish Mia from other instructors. Wonderful teacher!
While I love Mia's gentle, kind energy, I feel like I had NO time or space to actually go inside with the incessant talking, which I found ironic, because this is where yoga is guiding us. I would have loved her class and these valuable teachings with half the talking, which I think is possible. I tried to get through it, but I couldn't because I needed a more even balance of talking with space to actually experience the teaching internally.
Yeah, I'm starting to think there should be a designated subset of videos for those of us who like some silence built into the practice.
I like listening to Mia's knowledge. It keeps me focused on the pose and her cues help me build strength
I thought this session was informative and motivational. She breaks down each the forms nicely. Even my husband who on a sideline said she is good!
I CAN NOT STAND how much this woman talks. It ruined my practice and I was so disappointed. Meditation and inner peace is not constant chatter, I ended up muting the video completely. I will not be using this instructur again
I love her talking. The other classes the teachers are boring with no personality and I lose motivation.
I greatly appreciate Mia’s informed and well meaning explanation of the sutras. It bolsters an important element in yoga practice and reminds us that it is not just a physical practice.
I have taken classes at Yogaworks since it opened. I keep coming back to Mia. She really is the best.
Wonderful to do a 415 class. This was informative, inspirational, great series of asanas. Thank you, Mia.
I couldn’t finish this class because of the non-stop talking. I didn’t feel the instructor provided much of a message despite all of those words. Made me anxious.
Same here — stopped at 30’. What a shame, the sequence flow is actually pretty good and grounding.
Interesting. I LOVE hearing talk when I’m practicing at home. It keeps me motivated. Almost every teacher is normally the same boring thins with no talking. She is so refreshing!
The class had nice sequences, but the constant commentary was distracting. I find it helpful when instructors provide guidance in the positive direction, rather than frequent reminders of the things I should not be thinking about (e.g., relationships, money, ego, lunch).
I’m completely wrung our. That was awesome. I could listen to Mia speak all day, she has such a peaceful tone.
This class was just what I needed to let go of anxiety over a stressful upcoming event. The talking was very helpful to me, because my mind kept slipping, and differently things Mia would say would really resonate and then bring me back to center and mindfulness. thank you very much for being one of the few instructors who will offer such a well-rounded class that provides physical challenge/flow + mindfulness and food for thought
This practice was so perfect! I feel so strong and open. Thank you!
I feel so calm, open-hearted, strengthened and lengthened after this class. You have a nice, soothing voice to listen to. Really appreciate a fuller yoga experience with spirit in the center. Thank you.
Mia's classes always hit all the parts my body needs most: Shoulders, twists, hips. She takes you out of savasana, and she creates a great place for meditation at the end, so maybe have one ready!
I loved this class Mia! All of your classes are so mindful and grounding. I always finish feeling grounded and like a million bucks.
loved it and feel great after
Definitely had a bit to do with my environment, but my whole body was slippery by the end of this! Great practice, and I loved the commentary.
I love the sutra classes and have benefitted from them tremendously! Please make more of them :)))
I cannot seem to use the videos because they are encoded in some special way. I can download yogaworks videos from You Tube. If you could tell me why this is and/or fix it, I would much appreciate.
I love this class and have taken it several times...I am wondering if this same class could be recreated with less discussion as it becomes distracting after a while? Just a thought. Thank you Mia!
I feel we should have more of this kind of class, my experience is that I gain so much more from the class, and can do so much more, when there is an integrated approach like this. Thank you Mia!
Thank you for an enlightening and challenging class. And thank you for reminding us what yoga really is all about--it is a physical, mental, and, most of all, spiritual practice that is meant to bring us inner peace and unity with all that is. I can't wait to try the other sutras!
Thank you Mia for this amazing class :)
I'm a YW Teacher and this is very useful for my teaching here in Paris.
(Forgot the left side of low lunge at the beginning :)) Just to let you know I'm very focus during your classes haha
Looking forward to meet you one day. Maybe come for a TT in Paris at my Studio?
I for one am pro-Mia talking. IMHO it isn't too much, and I like that I'm learning about the spiritual aspects of the practice, not just exercise.
really liked the class but could take a bit less talking. Hard to find the quiet space between the breath with all the comments.
Nothing but incredible things from this class. Thank you, Mia! Keep them coming. <3
So much talking. I felt mentally tired after the class.
I could not quiet my mind, too much talking. I know all she said was great....but I could not focus.
I appreciate that Mia teaches beyond the postures in this series, and she must because she is instructing many who are at home, and who knows what level of understanding they have. I believe that comes with taking online classes. Thank you Mia...always a good class.
Mia your classes are great but please less talking!! I agree with the others here😉
I like the pace of movement - not breakneck speed like many other classes out there. And as someone who cannot drive to a YogaWorks class, I sincerely appreciate the theme offered - although few pauses in the talking would give more time to digest the message. Thanks for a great class, Mia!
I liked the sequence of the class, but there was too much talking.
I loved the movement and emphasis and clearing the mind. I started to get annoyed however at the constant talking by the teacher. If we are to clear our mind, give us moments of silence to do that.
Good, slow and basic (as Mia says at the beginning) strength-building class with lots of sun salutations. However, I found it tough on the wrists.
Allow yourself to be nourished with pleasure in this class that works to focus your attention so you can let go and find your strawberry.
Have some fun and work hard in this playful flow. Recommended props: 2 blocks, 1 strap
Work up to flying pigeon with special attention on the transition into it's full expression.
