Get your blood flowing with this practice aimed at keeping your moving through the poses. Recommended props: 1 blanket
This is a perfect example of a moving meditation, i.e. yoga.
just started working out again. This was a great first workout.
great class, great movement. and without any chaturangas
Take the title at face value and be open to the experience. Reminded me of an iyengar flow class so I didn't mind the repetition. VERY important to come back to the breath. Reminding yourself, as the instructor states, to move on your OWN breath which sometimes means skipping one of the reps and taking few additional rounds of breathing. Overall it reminded me that sometimes in life you just have to move and not think about the outcome just what you're doing at the moment.
I liked that there weren't any vinyasas, but this class was too repetitive for me with too many arm circles overhead. The warm up especially was so repetitive and long that I thought it was going to be the whole class. I wish the poses were held longer twice rather than being repeated quickly 4 times.
very clear instructions. Yes repetition but I think thats what makes this so good.
Wow Calvin...I got all the feeling with this practice. Felt it somewhere else than in my body...I got a peace of mind and at same time it was tiring but deeply tiring...felt inner body working more than outer muscles. Thanks...enjoyed it.
Not cardio. Too simple. Will not do again.
May I recommend a class in kindness perhaps.
This class is great for what it is but I had searched for a class that would get my heart rate up and make me sweat, and that, it definitely did not do - at least for me. Just a heads up for people looking for something that will raise your heart-rate and really make you move, this may not be the best class.
I loved this class! Perfect flow with no chaturangas (welcome for my shoulders) and every part of me was worked and stretched. I even broke a sweat! Thank you, Calvin.
I smiled, grinned actually, mid class. It felt happy, the movement wasnt sternous, but it required strength. Great mixture. Thank you!
Love this class! Definitely wakes you up and builds a sweat. Love Calvin's simplistic approach to this flow sequence
just right after a long day, not boring at all! The movements are so good for your body! Thank you C!
For beginners like myself building strength this was a helpful course and the repetition helped me build a sweat going between poses. Feels like a 1.5 but not complaining at all.
Nice class, especially if you want to avoid sun salutations or are looking for a less strenuous practice..
I needed something not too strenuous and this flow was just right for the morning. I've taken Calvin's other classes and they are usually more instructive and dynamic. But because this is a repetitive flow it didn't bother me that it was low-key and it still got me going for the day. I recommend it.
Perfect class for early morning creaky bodies. Lots of heat and strength building.
also great for a moving meditation because you're focusing on the movement and your breath
great class for the morning and getting your body ready for the day. surprisingly accumulated a lot of heat and strength throughout all the movement. also great if you have any shoulder issues because there's no chaturanga's
Good flow for those days when you need to stretch and not overdo any muscle groups. While some have suggested it's boring, I found the low key presentation quite peaceful, getting straight to the point.
Based on the comments, I was afraid this would be boring. It is repetitive but it felt great - I really enjoyed it. I'd say give it a try!!
Would highly recommend changing the level to beginner for this one. Boring... Kinda feel like I wasted my time with this one as it wasn't what i was looking for
This is fine for a beginner, but not challenging enough for intermediate. Also, very, very boring.
They aren't exaggerating when they say that it's repetitive. Also a lot less rigorous than I expected from a Level 2 class. It sounds like it gets more energizing further in, but my body so felt bored and listless five minutes in that I just couldn't take it anymore. Might be perfect for some, but just not my style.
Just what I needed this travel day.
Very Very Very repetitive. I broke a sweat and it was a good workout but boring.
Loved every minute.
totally excellent! i love the repetitions - i added my own chaturangas during the plank time. i'm sweaty & my muscles are shaky! love it
Really like the versatility of this instructor. This class kept me moving which keeps the cold out of my bones here in a New England winter.
If you are either crunched for time or only feeling like practicing for 30 minutes, then this is perfect. Gets a sweat going about half way through and great movement synced with breathing. Thumb's up!
This was a really nice flow that didn't focus on chatarunga. I liked the repetitions and particularly the focus on breath. I added a few floor stretches and shavasana at the end and it was perfect.
This was my first workout after being sick and it was the perfect remedy. The focus on full body movement was just what I was looking for.
Due to the fast pace of the class there's a lot of repetition. No chaturangas. Not much of a cool down.
Will definitely repeat this practice!!! So great! Went by in a heart beat! Namaste!
Had to stop halfway through.Maybe in a few weeks...
This is the perfect flow to get your blood pumping and body warm on mornings that you don't want to do a long, more challenging one!
This is a great waking up and getting your day started practice. I have very tight hamstrings in the morning it's hard for me to do deep poses, but this practice had enough hamstring stretches that I could loosen/warm up my hamstrings and build a nice sweat. The flow is different then a normal practice, but that is why I loved doing this in the morning. Its constantly moving so no boredom
Work on kicking up to handstand and balancing in the middle of the room. Also check out Alex's other class on this for a different take.
