Warm up and educate all of the areas of the body you need to get into the very challenging pose, king pigeon. Recommended props: 2 blocks, 1 strap

Clear , calm, to the point instructions. Working every joint and muscle needed for the final pose . Clear level 2 though.
Overall a very good practice.

Clear, calm instructions. Mia is always encouraging with excellent modifications. This class is particularly good for hip opening and when you want to take a day off from full bridge and head/hand stands.

great class! Thanks Mia.

I would have preferred less instruction and more movement and flow. I was unable to complete the class because I found the excessive instruction for cat/cow, down dog, etc. to be too distracting.

This was such a wonderful practice. The detail in the cueing was so good. Thanks for sharing your passion. I will do this class over and over. I can see how this will give me so much strength and opening.

It was very helpful to practice king pigeon. Very nice sequence. I would like to keep coming back until I get full King dancers pose!

I picked this class hoping for a lot more heat and sweat then it wound up being. However it was everything my body needed. So much delicious detail in this class. I am not disappointed.

I love this sequence its really amazing but i would love to have it with about 1/4 of the talking. The constant talking gets frustrating when you just want to settle in and breathe. Otherwwise its great

This class felt so balanced- the perfect ratio of challenging engagement and release. My favorite vinyasa class on here by far! Beautifully sequenced and Mia always brings such peace to my practice

I loved this practice, Mia, thank you. I disagree with the other comments saying there were too many chaturgangas. I very much appreciated them all, as the maintenance of heat really helps open the body into backbends. I was pleased with the long and SILENT savasana (I don't mind shorter savasanas on My YW but some instructors talk through the whole rest poseā€¦I appreciate that Mia did not). It was overall a really deep, delicious, mindful practice that I look forward to doing again :) Namaste.

Thank you, Mia. I enjoy your classes here. I hope to be able to your take classes in person one of these days :)) Keep sharing and inspiring. Thank you :))

a very beautiful class! Loved the way it flowed into the Apex asana. Classes like this is why I practice yoga. Thank You!

I love that you have a theme and the sequence flows naturally and makes sense to get you to the final postures. Also, I like that you are not too chatty or overly descriptive on the basics. This is level three. Some teachers spend 3 minutes while you are in plank, explaining proper plank posture. I just finished this video on a rainy Sat morning, here in NYC....feel accomplished (a bit sore already), but satisfied that I worked hard. If you like a lot of chatarunga's like I do with a challenging non-stop flow, Mia's classes are the best! Thanks!

Thanks for a great practice. Sun As and Bs, and lots of hip and shoulder-openers. I found more ease in king pigeon than usual!

Meaghan Q.

Such a great flow. Really enjoyed it!

Too many chaturungas for a backbend practice. I wish you included more quad and shoulder openers in the sequence and a couple more open shoulder inversions.

Romina C.

Nice, Thank you..I would like more opening in the beginning. Maybe a chant or 3 times Om. : ))
