This dynamic flow with Christine Price Clark is especially for moms, or those with little time for themselves. Light your fire. Play deeply. Reveal your dynamic and alive self. And do it all while your little one naps. Finish ready and able to support the ones you love. This class is for students with a strong understanding of the Universal Principles of Alignment, as it moves at a vigorous pace and includes some poses from the Level 3 (advanced) Syllabus. Includes: hip openers, arm balances, inversions at the wall and deep backbends. This video is part of our Yoga for Busy Moms practice guide.

Christine's teaching is excellent--she reminded me of the deep wisdom of Anusara and also nurtured and invigorated me as a tired mama;). Thank you!

Christine, this is my all time favorite! It is so intelligently designed and suprisingly restorative. You are inspiring. Natalie

Thank you so much for this video! great for me to try and get back into some intermediate stuff, and baby did not wake up! please do more focused on moms trying to get in their practice.

I'm afraid I have a complaint about this video. Although she spends 5 precious minutes just talking at the beginning, never once does she say "we're going to do several arm balances at the wall in this practice, so be sure to create a clear space for yourself before we begin practicing." I live in a very small space and so I would have to move furniture and take down art to do this practice! She seems like a decent teacher so perhaps I'll try this practice again when I have more time to prepare.

Hi all, thank you for your feedback and thoughts. I think what would have been beneficial here is for me to have pointed out that this is not a "post-natal" practice. I will remember this in future. That is, it is not appropriate for a new mom in recovery. Its intention was for those with int/advanced practices to get a little stoking when attending a full-length class isn't an option. As a mom myself, and one who took some to time to recover from my first baby's birth ( i think I did my first full practice after 10 weeks) , I wholeheartedly recommend stepping back in with great attention and at a measured pace. Once the body feels ready, then if you are willing and desiring, amp it up- according to your level, of course.

As she says in the beginning of the video, this class is intermediate/advanced. The pace went slightly too fast for me, and the headstand sequence was too advanced for me. I would not recommend this class for new moms with sleeping infants.... That said, if you are advanced, this would be a great class.

It's a nice, short practice, rather challenging for how short it is. I have 5 kids (my youngest is now 5), and I have recovered from birth while trying to re-integrate myself into my yoga practice. I personally could not do such intense backbending or handstands for the first 6-9 months after my last birth. Maybe it's because I had 4 kids before, but, I would be afraid to recommend this practice to someone with a sleeping infant for sure!

i loved this! Keep em coming Christine please!

camillasrap, posted on September 16, 2011

Wonderful practice...tho no baby to's gonna be a favourite. With thanks

camillasrap, posted on September 5, 2011

Loved this class, tho probably too challenging right now as fairly new to Anusara but found Christine's instructions clear and easy to follow. I feel shiny and new! Thanks

DreamOcean, posted on May 5, 2011

Strong and warming sequence... really enjoyed the handstands! Like she says, it's more of an int-advanced practice and you feel it especially in your back. Excellent job Christine! I had time to pause and go into a counter balance forward bend before the shivansan after so much back stretching, which really helped me personally. This routine built up to my best back bend in months! Ahsante (thank you)

thank you!

Wow, what a practice! As always, I love Christine's specificity of direction - its so wonderful to be able to deepen into a pose knowing that my joints are safe, being told exactly how to move my muscles to support the pose. Yum. As a new mom of a beautiful 7 month-old boy, I appreciated the playfulness of "don't wake the baby". He did wake about halfway through, but just hung out with me doing his own yoga through the rest of the video, and held my hand during savasana. Yum yum yum delicious - and definitely a bit ass-kicking, but exhilaratingly so! Thank you Christine!

This practice serves a great purpose. The upper body workout is fantastic, please consider extending this practice.

So excited to take this class. This is exactly how I spend nap time.

annsmithphd, posted on February 6, 2011

LOL! Love the title. As soon as I started, my daughter woke briefly from her nap. I was able to 'check in' on her and get right back to this energizing, inspiring practice. As I leave the mat, I feel 'checked in' on a bit myself, grateful for my Friends, reminded why I practice.

wow that was so much of what I needed...the backbends and inversions really helped me feel invigorated. I have two children and am tired so much of the time..this practice really helped me with that fatigue..thank you

very fast practice-more vinyasa than Anusara. imho, but sweet!

NicoleUrdang, posted on February 2, 2011

Challenging. Definitely not a moderate practice as she says in the beginning of the video.
A great choice when you have less than 45 minutes and want to feel rejuvenated.
Thank you!
