    Ooooo nice. I always feel lots better after these classes but today I seem to feel extra loosened up, warm, chilled and open. :) The long hip openers at the end have grounded my head and energy so much, thank you, thankyou. :)

  • grace chang     Jun 12th, 2012
    why isn't the instructor demonstrating for students who are visual learner or going around adjusting?
    • Lauren Connolly     Sep 6th, 2012
      Probably because it's a level 2/3 class. I think she does an amazing job of holding the space! :)
  • Susan Vogler     Jun 4th, 2012

  • M'Le Leach     Jun 1st, 2012
    Thank you so much for this class! I was really anxious at first because I'm stressed out about finishing up spring quarter, but this class helped me let it go. After I did the first round of camel, but body just released and relaxed. Thank you again! xoxo

  • Azziza      May 6th, 2012
    Thank You Kathryn!!

    I am able to do King Dancer on my left side but not on my right, i guess it will come with practice. Great session as usual.
  • Annette Taylor     May 6th, 2012
    I very nearly talked myself out of doing this today because I was feeling so tired and sluggish. I am so glad I did it because I sure don't feel that way anymore! Awesome class, very stimulating and enlivening. Thanks!
  • Autumn Jordan     May 5th, 2012
    Great backbends! I just thought it would have been faster, and make me sweat...Lovely though.
  • Huda Mussa     May 5th, 2012
    lovely class. Salambasana came in very handy as I have been practicing it to stabilize my SI joint.
  • Aisha Al-Khaldi     May 5th, 2012
