  • Linsey & Garren Parkins     Sep 11th, 2012

  • Sarah Hussam     Jul 26th, 2012
    loved it!
  • Natasha Rainger     Jun 24th, 2012
    it is a challenge! but one completed whew!
  • susana faria ponte     Jun 13th, 2012
    Very part because of the flow and because the instructor participated.
  • Molly Molly     Feb 24th, 2012
    Not to seem contrary to the previous poster, as this is only my opinion, but I quite enjoyed the fact that Noah practised and 'instructed' with us. I get more from seeing the authentic yogi in action and their humanness, than I do looking a pretty shapes of yogis in stills. I respect him very deeply for this challenging practise and I found it motivating. Peace and love. Namaste. :)
  • sonda Cohen     Jan 10th, 2012
    i think the concept of continuous flow of sun salutations is delicious, but i think it would be better if Noah were not demonstrating himself. It makes him sound very breathy and jerky. Since it is quite repetitive, it would be best to just give oral instructions or have someone else demonstrate. Namaste :)
  • Noah Maze     Dec 22nd, 2011
    Thanks guys, for embracing the challenge, for embracing and expanding your potential. May you have sweet and safe holidays!

  • Bridget Lyons     Jan 30th, 2011
    Thanks, N! Wouldn't have thought that the jathara/vira/supta vira sequence would be enough to set my thighs/abs/psoas up for 30 backbends, but it was! What a cool thing to be made to realize...
  • Sally Rud     Jan 27th, 2011
    Awesome! Felt a little sore in my lower back, but then my back felt amazingly flexible for days after :). Thank You, Noah!

    This was an inspiring challenge. I could not complete 30 backbends! I only got to 21 - but I learned a lot in the space between the 3-5 backbends you normally do in a class and reaching that number 21! Thank you for a great challenge
  • Ellen Kaplow     Jan 23rd, 2011
    thank you only annoyance sweaty alms and feet...but vibrating to the source!
