  • Catherine Holmes     Jan 25th, 2013
    nice class but even as a solid intermediate practitioner I was too put off by some of the more difficult twists, I would call this class a 2-3.
    • YogaGlo     Jan 29th, 2013
      Catherine – thank you for your feedback. After further consideration we changed this to a 2/3.

    Elena - I took my first class with you at Yoga Journal SF this year and LOVED your style. What you taught us about being soft with our feet I've carried with me into so many of my own classes as I pass on that gift to my students. ...this was my second class with you and I'll certainly keep adding them to the list. Gracias!
