Thank you so much for the wonderfully challenging video. I love how you helped me prepare, warm up, and educate my body Olivia.
Enjoyed the instructor but feel that full backbend, revolved half moon and chaturanga from a lifted leg plank are more advanced poses than I would expect in a Level 2 class.
I didn't really enjoy this class. It was listed as a vinyasa class but there is no real flow. There's no warm up. It started with pilates clams! Not the yoga class I was after.
I agree this felt closer to a level 3 class, without enough targeted warm up. I felt like I got on my mat and dove right into the hard stuff. Enjoyed the last half of the class a little more.
I found this class to be quite a challenge for me but I really enjoyed it. Great instruction and focus on alignment. I feel great and will continue to do this one to work toward improvement in some of the challenging strength and balance poses!
This is an excellent class that does exactly what the description states—brings awareness to the hips, and is a very strong sequence. The instructor is both methodical and meticulous in her instruction. Doing this class regularly will definitely increase hip strength and stability!
Yes, this is definitely a strong practice and it does actually focus on strengthening the hips. Olivia seems to be very knowledgeable and her instruction is very detailed and precise. I personally missed a sense of 'yoga', meaning the attention to the breath, the mind and the state of being. I felt class was focused on the physical details, much like a physical therapy session. Not a bad thing...just a bi too much talking for my taste.
I agree with the other comments that the transition in one of the sequence was not fluid. Also, some of the poses I thought were more level 3. The instructor should have given modifications to the poses.
Great video, ladies!! Olivia, thank you for such thorough cues -- I am new to yoga and was able to transition without having to come out of position to look at the screen. Thanks for a great class!
I have to admit i didn't like it much. I thought the transitions were somewhat confusing.
This class was superb, great cues, a great sequence with long holds and amazing combined asanas. Thank you, it sure got my morning started just right.
This is definitely for more advanced but my hips feel so much stronger. I loved this class and I needed it. Thank you.
