You'll start slow and work your way up to a standing sequence with a few sun salutes and hip openers to cultivate both your courage and your curiosity. Stay curious about your capacities and courage will follow!

  • Nancy Cotter     Dec 1st, 2012
    Great example of cultivation of qualities in the safe, calm grounded space of the mat, preparing for both inner and outer worlds
  • Heather Beckett     Nov 30th, 2012
    Thank you for the loving soft practice!
  • Carole Steeves     Nov 21st, 2012
    I've had so many injuries over the last year to my ankle and wrist and various pulled muscles, my 14 years of yoga practice has suffered greatly. This was such a great pace and duration to get me back on track with lovely movements that didn't strain my body. Thank you Elena!

    A great class, thank you. As the sun comes up I feel refreshed and relaxed ready for the day.
  • Pam Wrigley     Oct 18th, 2012
    A lovely class but an alternative to some of the seated postures, eg putting left foot on top of right knee and vice versa would have been great for those of us that are less flexible. I cannot get anywhere near this posture and I find cow pose very challenging so a bit of lead up as to how to work towards it would have been good.
    Thank you
  • Christy Tennery     Oct 14th, 2012
    Just what my hips and heart needed. Thank you for helping me invite a little grace.

  • Debbie Smothers     Sep 19th, 2012
    Perfect class since I wasn't able to make it to my local yoga studio today. Just the right amount of time to fit in between errands & retrieving my daughter from volleyball practice.
    • Angie Campbell     Oct 12th, 2012
