Allow your twists to feel so good you’ll shout with glee! Mia shows you how to avoid forcing your body into twists, and rather to allow your breath to guide your muscles, bones and organs into the poses. Recommended props: 1 block
I felt great after this class. The twisting sequences are easy to follow. A good practice to integrate on a weekly routine.
Effective and challenging class that makes you feel stronger as
you move through the sequencing, The instructions were clear and concise allowing smooth movement through the flow. I will definitely put this video in my weekly practices. It was a
sweaty yet feel good flow.
I loved this class. Challenging while at the same time the pace was slow enough to encourage you to really focus on alignment. Great teaching from Mia - familiar poses felt completely different thanks to great instructions. I'll be checking out all of Mia's classes now!
Holy smokes! Another amazing twist sequence from Mia. That was challenging and sweat inducing. I will be adding this to my regular rotation.
I really enjoyed this class as it was challenging and really got into the twists quickly. I think it should have been an extra 5 minutes longer to allow for a longer warmup and stretching at the end.
The most twisty practice I have taken so far! Required lots of muscular contraction and stabilization in hips/legs and core areas approaching each twist safely and effectively. Nicely guided through the practice suggesting to use breath and muscular engagement rather than force. I enjoyed the sequence and the Mia,s instructions (fan of yours :), but I guess I could use a momentum to rest and digest the information.
I enjoyed being able to do a lot of twisting sequences in a short time. I wish we had more of a cool down with some seated and reclining twists as well to balance out the leg effort. Also, I love Mia and have a lot of her classes in My Favorites. In this particular case I wish there had been a little less talking and bit more space in between the thoughts/ideas and suggestions to assimilate and integrate all the information. Just a thought :)
If you want nothing but twists, you've come to the right class! Includes just a couple sun salutations. Surprised that we ended in child's pose instead of savasana -- especially after all the heat we built up -- but Mia makes this class fly by. I've taken other twist-focused classes outside of YogaWorks and felt drained to the point of developing a headache. Pleased to report no such feeling after this one; in fact, I feel pretty good! I did feel like I needed to stretch out my neck, shoulders, and quads on my own, though.
Great twist flow when you don't have a lot of time. Feel energized for my day.
I think I need to do twists more often. I found this practice to be really intense, but in a good way. Definitely woke me up and warmed me up for my day
very nice - energizing and totally do-able. I'll do this one again.
... and a great workout when one doesn't have a lot of time...
Great class! I really enjoyed all the twists after a long day of sitting in an office.
Even though its only a half an hr, I felt I got a full twist work out
great 30 min class. goes right into it with just a little warm up and little cool down.
Rough weekend? Get a clean slate with this detoxifying twisting sequence.
