    This was perfect! I'm a bartender and my 'day' doesn't start until 9pm, but this was perfect to wake me up after a long nap. Thanks :D
    • Amy Ippoliti     Nov 8th, 2014
      Love it! Great to hear, Zach, thanks!

      Fantastic, Beth!! So glad to hear it. :)
  • Katrine Hald     Aug 10th, 2014
    I love the grounded teaching you do in this class. So calm, simple, respectful and strong. I often move on to do my stuff pretty quick after class. This one guided me in to meditation, which is really helpful for me. Just want to thank you for all that ;-) love to you

    Thank you Amy! What a great little practice...I DO feel grounded and energized. And even though my balance was off this morning, I got into chapasana for the first time ever--on both sides!--which felt pretty cool even though I fell out of it on the first side. Thanks as always.... Namaste.

    Amy, I love this practice and wish it were longer! Is there a longer version? If not, please consider a 45 or 60 minute one!
    • Amy Ippoliti     Jul 11th, 2013
      Thanks so much, Alexandra! I do have a number of 45 and 60 minute practices that might fit the bill. You might also enjoy "Morning Refresher - Shift Your State", "Juicy Flow", and"Thaw Out Your Shoulders & Hips". And I'll definitely be filming more so will keep this kind of flow/length in mind!
  • Heidi Cousino     Jul 7th, 2013

  • Andreia Torres     May 4th, 2013
    I'm always stiff in the morning so I tend to postpone my yoga time, but I'm glad I took that short one. Although I find it difficult to practice early I feel great now. Thanks

    I met Amy two years ago at the Telluride Yoga Festival. What struck me most about her was how effortlessly she expressed herself and how that positive energy seamlessly translated into her teaching. It's all here in this short class. An excellent stretch and start to the day. Thanks, Amy,

This was a really perfect, well rounded practice for when I`m short on time. Love your voice and encouraging manner! Thanks!
    • Amy Ippoliti     Jul 31st, 2012
      Mary, congrats on your TT accomplishment and return to yoga! So glad you enjoyed the classes and this little quicky. Thanks so much for the positive feedback and for practicing on the Glo! :)

    • Amy Ippoliti     Jul 31st, 2012
      This is great, David, thanks for the kind feedback! As I say a lot - even just 20 minutes first thing makes such a difference, so I am glad you are getting it in before work! There are more 20 minute durations on the way...
  • Farrel Levy     Jul 16th, 2012
    This class was a great way for me to start my day when I had only twenty minutes to fit in for practice. Thank you Amy. Your description is perfect.

      Noted!! See you in SC! :)
  • Cecilia Lunardini     Jul 10th, 2012
    I like this practice because it has just the right pace, starting slow and picking up as it goes. It feels a lot longer than 20 minutes because it leaves you feeling the way you would feel after a 1 hour class and covers many basics. It is a very good daily practice for me.
    • Amy Ippoliti     Jul 14th, 2012
      Great feedback - thank you Cecilia! So glad you enjoyed. :)
  • Julie Schenk     Jul 10th, 2012

      Love CO Ally! Thanks, Julie! :)
  • Meghan Morton     Jul 8th, 2012

      Excellent! Thanks, Meghan. :)
  • Rochelle Rochelle     Jul 4th, 2012
    I just finished this (even though it is actually 10pm here in the UK) and I finished the practice and said out loud, without thinking: "What a nice person". I thought I should share it with you : ) You genuinely seem like a lovely person. Thank you for the class. I haven't done one of your classes before, so I will now click on your name and see what other classes you have taught. Thank you again.
    • Amy Ippoliti     Jul 14th, 2012
      Awww, thank you Rochelle! What a sweet thing to say. Thanks so much for practicing. Hope to meet you in the UK someday and that the practice was helpful at night too. :)

      Awesome, Sonya, so glad!
  • Katie Stewart     Jul 1st, 2012
    Thank you for this beautiful practice, Amy! I have never practiced with you before, and this was wonderful. I like using the 20 minute practices when I'm short on time, but I'm always a little wary of them (If it's going to be a short practice, I want it to be a good one!). I feel completely refreshed now after practicing. Thank you again for a wonderful practice!P.S. You have such a soothing, gentle voice. :)
    • Amy Ippoliti     Jul 2nd, 2012
      Wow, thank you so much, Katie! I'm really glad that you had such a positive experience. Yay!
  • Candice Ho     Jun 29th, 2012

    Hi Amy,I had early morning HIIT workout commitment, otherwise I would've tested AC technique sooner. It worked well, (on standing leg) I fired up my hamstrings and isometrically dragged my heel back. I noticed to points: I felt more connected to the earth and my toes started to grip a little. Good info! Going forward to will proceed my practice this way- thanks so much for your insight. Greatly appreciated. Namaste, Janel

    • Amy Ippoliti     Jun 28th, 2012
      Wonderful, Deirdre! So happy you felt great afterwards and you're enjoying the classes. :)
  • Janel DuRoss     Jun 25th, 2012
    Amy, I always make a point to seek out your classes - thanks so much.Did you do additional warm up before this sequence?I felt there was not enough warm up before getting into Ardha Chandrasana (one of my favorite poses). Upon getting into the pose I felt a really strong pull on the attachments of my Semitendinosus
    • Amy Ippoliti     Jun 25th, 2012
      Thanks for practicing with my classes, Janel! There are several key warm up elements I use in this practice to get ready for Ardha Chandrasana which include 1. Downward Dog Split (big hamstring warm up), 2. Surya Namaskar (general heat builder), 3. Warrior 2/Parsvakonasana (to heat the legs) and 4. Triangle pose (to stretch the hamstrings) just before Ardha Chandrasana). Everyone is different in terms of warm up needs, however a hamstring attachment pull while stretching typically indicates a laxity in the muscle. I would make sure you are engaging your hamstrings by isometrically dragging your standing heel backward in space to fire the hamstrings. I would use a block under your hand to decrease the stretch (ie. lower the stakes) while you are getting better at firing the hamstring. Please let me know how that goes!
      • Janel DuRoss     Jun 26th, 2012
        Amy, (I hope you were able to read my whole message, as here it looks cut off)Thanks so much for this excellent tip !! I will definitely try your suggestion and get back to you, plus take this AM class again. I told Derik how happy I was that you added to Yogaglo teacher roster. Also, in the very near future I plan to take your 90 Minutes to Change the World! : )
        • Amy Ippoliti     Jun 28th, 2012
          Yes I only was able to see what is posted here...but I certainly look forward to hearing how it goes for you with the hamstring and ardha chandrasana. Thanks so much for all your enthusiasm, Janel - you rock! So psyched you can join us for so much online goodness these days. :)
  • CAROL FELLOWES     Jun 25th, 2012

      Wonderful, Carol - thank YOU!
  • Brianne Grogan     Jun 24th, 2012
    Thank you for a great, quick practice! I love the twisted pigeon pose toward the end. Amy, I have a materialistic question for you: I adore your top! Where did you find it?
    • Amy Ippoliti     Jun 24th, 2012
      Thanks so much, Brianne! Really glad you enjoyed the practice, and the top...Lulu Lemon! Not sure if it will still be available, but something like it will I'm sure. :)
