    Noah,
    Thank you so much for this class as it is serving as part of my rejuvination. I am new to Yogaglo but not to Yoga having practiced for eleven years. From 2010-2012 there was a big bump in this practice but in late 2012 I turned one of the corners of life and now have re-dedicated myself and have a established a strong and dedicated personal practice. There just is no quality instruction where I currently live. With a very broad athletic and professional coaching background I truly appreciate attention to detail which you provided in this class. While it was a a level 2/3 (2) there was enough intensity to get my fire burning but not too much to scare someone away who is movin on up. I hope that this detail of instruction will continue as I have noticed some other teachers who were previously under the Anusare web stray away from this. What a pity, because it is this detail and understanding of the bodies bio-mechanics that drew me to Yoga. Without this and with weaker instruction it only says... " Run away ". Coaches and teachers are some of the best thieves around and when they see and learn good things from others they should use them no matter what, if it works for them. In this class I only wish there was less talk of time as it is something I have always tried to avoid when I coach. It can be distracting and can cause some students to lose focus. Minor detail.
    Anyway, a big thumbs up for this one. We have friends in common as I was born and raised in Bucks County, PA and they are also my teachers.
    Off to the Mat. Peace!

      Hi Chris, thank you so much for the note. I'm so glad we can connect online. Thank you for your reflections on class and yoga instruction. It is interesting to observe, in myself and in others, the direction(s) we are moving now that we are no longer under the banner of a branded style of yoga. It is, in a lot of ways, a great time of creativity. For me personally, which you speak to a bit, I am quite focused on the poses, on the alignment and actions that the poses need/ask for. In a sense, I think I may be more specific to bio-mechanical instructions than I was previously. And, I do love the timer...but welcome your feedback on that. Best to you!

    Noah, This class was a fav when I attended your Immersion and is now a fav at home to....and yes, it's a "bleepin" tough class! : )
    • Noah Maze     Mar 18th, 2013
      Thanks Barb, so great to 'see' you again! :)
  • Valerie Madison     Feb 14th, 2013
    Loved your enthusiasm Noah! I am feeling open and energized for my day. I'll definitely add this class to my favorites list!
    • Noah Maze     Mar 18th, 2013
      Thanks Valerie, so glad it worked for you, and that you can pass it forward throughout your day :)
  • Alexandra Hasselkuss     Oct 16th, 2012
    This is my weekly strength and stamina building class! xo
    • Noah Maze     Mar 18th, 2013
      Thanks Alex!
  • Alessandra Sánchez-Reyes     Aug 20th, 2012
    Loved the class. The Italian translations made me laugh so much! Hahahaha!
    Btw, what is it about backbends that alters the breath making it short and fast? Is it because we are compressing the lungs while opening the chest? Namaste Noah.
    • Noah Maze     Mar 18th, 2013
      Alessandra, thank you for taking class! How is Paris? As far as the breath, it depends on the backbends; but they stretch the abdomen and diaphram and ribs, which will open the lungs, but they are quite strenuous in the doing...
  • Katherine Wilder     Aug 18th, 2012
    Wow ~ thanks Noah for a brilliant class. It created a beautiful environment for me to stay connected to my breath and in turn my mind! Namaste'
    • Noah Maze     Mar 18th, 2013
      Great, thanks Katherine!
  • Eliesha Lovell     Jul 9th, 2012
    This class was perfect for today! I needed a challenge without overdoing it. I've been practicing on my own for a couple of weeks and I need a little nudge - thanks for the nudge Noah! Namaste :)
    • Noah Maze     Mar 18th, 2013
      Thanks Eliesha, I am always good to give a little nudge :)
  • Yael Matsliah     Jun 22nd, 2012
    I've done this class three times now and I seem to forget when starting again how challenging it is! But I've also increased in strength and stamina since the first go around:) Awesome class, Noah.
    • Noah Maze     Mar 18th, 2013
      Yay, that is so great Yael! That is the benefit of coming back to the same class on an occasional/regular basis; you get to gauge where you are from that baseline.
  • Nick Florino     May 30th, 2012
    Noah, I love you. can't wait till you come to chi town in september. blessings and love my brother to you and yours. :) jai Ma!
  • Y Pays     May 30th, 2012
    I couldn't love you more if I tried!
  • cathy burke     May 23rd, 2012
    Loved the challenge. Really enjoy Noah's enthusiasm.
  • Patricia Becker     May 20th, 2012
    Dear Noah...Love your humor & teachings.
    I am a bit knocked kneed, getting less so, with years of using the alignment principles. When I stand with my legs and feet together it feels awkward. Do you have a recommended focus or action for those of us with this "standing knee bones pressing syndrome" ? :)
    Be well blessings & Gratitude

    • Noah Maze     Mar 18th, 2013
      Patricia, separate your feet a bit; that would be a normal modification in this scenario. As far as actions; squeeze your upper inner knees and widen your knees away from the midline as you engage your outer shins in towards the midline.
  • Mónica Pablos     May 12th, 2012
    Thank you Noah...as always....your way of teaaching and sharing and your presence inspire my teachings and my life.....much love for you and your family! Mnica
  • Rhonda Prestegard     May 12th, 2012
    Noah, yes every now and again I might think you are crazy for what you expect of us. But it is EXACTLY what I need to play the edge and grow in my practice. This was an awesome, intense class. Cursed it, but LOVED it! Thank you for expecting more of me than I sometimes expect of myself.
  • Mia Mironov     May 12th, 2012
    Namaste :)
  • Melissa Boone Osburn     May 10th, 2012

  • Julie Brooks     May 8th, 2012
    Loved it! Loved it! Loved the relaxed giggles from the class. Loved the sequence and tempo and the fact that the yogis are regulars of yours--feel like I know them. Brought me back to the days in Arizona with you Noah. xoxo
  • Julia ingersoll     May 8th, 2012
    Hola Noah-san, that practice was molto bene, kind of rajasic, which I love, especially with all your humorous comments. Equal parts cursing, breathing, and laughing.
    Ciao e grazie
    • Judith Abelenda     Dec 25th, 2012
      Hi Julia! Love to meet you here. And our Immersion I buddy Ashley on the screen! It is so great to get together with you and with Noah´s tough humor! Love you all.

  • Nick Heng     May 8th, 2012
    Awesome class from home, when I'm down with flu still get to practice Yoga with you! Thank you!

    Tough Love!
  • Patti MacPherson     May 7th, 2012
    that was some serious intermediate butt-kicking, thanks!
  • Elena Lowenthal     May 7th, 2012
    Noah,

    This class felt like a workout. For one minute even standing poses were pretty hard. And by the way I don't cuss at you even if you show staff that I can not do or it is a long hold. I just do as much as I can and hopefully next time I'll do better. This class really works on your stamina, both mental and physical. Elena
  • Mojgan Buonafede     May 6th, 2012
    It was indeed the best of best class I've ever experienced.
    The sequence, timeing and instruction to each pose was remarkable.
    Thank you so much
    • Noah Maze     May 6th, 2012
      Thanks Mojgan, I'm so glad you enjoyed it.
  • Alexandra Hasselkuss     May 6th, 2012
    Great class Noah! for the record, I've never cussed at you from the privacy of my own home! Lol ;)
    • Noah Maze     May 6th, 2012
      That is funny! Great to have you in class today!
  • Kelly Bursey     May 6th, 2012
    that was delicious!
