    There is a gentleness to the pace in your sequencing that is so enjoyable. This class felt like pure luxury and it worked! My leg was behind my head on both sides. With Gratitude, Tiffany :).

    Jesus, mary, joseph and the camel! Your classes are deceptive :) There's no crazy flow or ridiculousness, but about half-way through I always stop and realize how empty my tank is. Primo!! :)

    I loved this class so much! It was exactly what my body needed after a lot of working and stress. This helped me let go of a lot. Lulu is adorable. That little fluffy tail of her is so cute. I didn't even hear her come in. <3. Much love.

  • Erica Erica     Mar 20th, 2012
    that was the best foot-behind-the-head class i have done so far. i was able to get each foot farther behind the head than ever before.
    thanks!
  • Mahala Helf     Mar 20th, 2012
    Thanks for the encouraging blurb. This really was a gentle and accessible class and suitable for anyone who knows sun salutations can be patient with a slow sequence, be aware that depending on what else they did this week they may have to ease into a range of motion that came easily some other time, and doesn't need to "stick that pose."
    Maybe consider tagging it a 1 thru 3?
  • Daisy Solano     Mar 20th, 2012
    Great class, really enjoyed the last pose with hips opened at wall.
