Did you know that your body temperature typically rises a couple of degrees as part of what helps us wake up? In this vinyasa practice with Andrea Marcum she uses movement to elevate your body temperature and increase blood flow, which help to feel more alert and vibrant. In addition to sun salutations, light exposure - in particular sunlight - can help regulate your internal “alerting signal” and keep you awake and attentive as you adjust to a new set of daylight hours.

Loved this practice! There aren't any Andrea Marcum videos on here that aren't 100% spectacular. It's great to have a new one to add to the collection.

Side note - during shavasana I felt weirdly pregnant again, and like I'd been there before... after a few minutes I finally realized that the music used during shavasana in this video is the exact same music that was used in my Hypno-Birthing CD's I used repetitively when I was pregnant 5 years ago. Hilarious! That put a smile on my face :)

Thanks for a great practice as always, Andrea!

And it's the first time anyone has told me they've felt pregnant in savasana :) What a sweet, nostalgic, musical moment. I so appreciate your kind comments here and YOU practicing with me here on Gaia.. xx A

Thank you for this practice Andrea. I've said it on other videos, but you are truly my favorite instructor here on Gaia. I haven't traveled anywhere lately but I'm taking a healing journey from a back/hip injury. I so appreciated this practice as it challenged me, nourished me and showed me how I am thriving. Namaste'

So great to hear from you and thrilled that you are thriving! Thanks for practicing with me! xx A

I'm not real adventurous about trying new teachers, but I'm so glad I found you! I really enjoy your soothing voice and the slower pace of this practice, coupled with a nice balanced workout and stretches. Will be interesting to see if my legs are sore tomorrow. Thank you for this lovely flow!

I have been suffering with deep depression, and finally woke at an early time this morning. I flipped through some videos quickly as I opened the My Yoga tab, and this one popped up immediately. I saw that it is OK for beginners, and I managed to complete this with some breaks in between, as well as some variations for my size. I was absolutely pouring sweat, and it felt DELICIOUS. My younger son came upstairs towards the end and showed me his wheel pose, even though mum can't quite manage yet. Thank you for this video. I feel absolutely rejuvenated and alive for the first time in months. I am thrilled with the feeling of vitality it has lit inside of me. I will add this to my playlist and continue to practice. xx

I am currently recovering from a bad depression myself. Andrea's videos are so challenging but at the same time so nurturing and supportive. Her classes on here have gotten me through a lot of dark times this year. She's one of the reasons I have been inspired to sign up for my 200 hour in the fall. I want to do something with yoga and depression because it has saved my life. I pray for your continued recovery through this difficult journey.

andreamarcum, posted on July 25, 2016

I just love that you are doing a 200 hour and absolutely cannot WAIT to hear from you as you explore your vision for yoga and depression. I truly believe that in the darkness of our own challenges lies the light of inspiring purpose and possibility. Yoga helps us see that. I can't tell you how happy it makes me to know that's part of your journey. If my classes here had anything to do with this exciting new footing you're finding I am honored in ways I don't really know how to express. Deep thanks and much much love. xx A

andreamarcum, posted on July 23, 2016

Thank you for connecting here and for sharing your story with me! I too am thrilled to hear that you are lit up with vitality and feeling delicious. It is inspiring people like you who make what I do as a "job" never feel like work. I celebrate your bright light! xx A

I've been away from my yoga for a couple months, and I have to say as soon as I scrolled through the newest offerings here, and saw that Andrea had a new class, I unrolled my mat immediately! Fantastic class; I feel like a calm and rejuvenated, quivering bowl of Jello (and that's a good thing). Thanks you, Andrea - you are a jewel!

andreamarcum, posted on July 23, 2016

Thank you for this uber-sweet message and for unrolling your mat to Arrive & Thrive with me! xx A

I travel often for work, and while in the same time zone, I find I need a practice that will warm me up and help me focus for the day. This was an excellent answer to that need. I appreciated the challenge of poses I'm familiar with but sequenced and transitioned in a manner that kept me focused on the cues and finding new challenges within the familiar. II will definitely return this practice often. Thank you!

andreamarcum, posted on July 21, 2016

Thanks a million for practicing with me - and be on the lookout for the bookend practice to this one that will help relax you towards sleep at the end of your work travel day. Totally appreciate you reaching out and thanks for being part of the Gaia family! xx A

Hi Andrea, love this mix of strengthening /challenging and calming poses! I did some modifications in side plank as I don't want to stress my shoulder joint. The rest was perfect, also the location. So beautiful! Was it hot there? I was practicing inside and thought that I would have melted away doing this practice outside there :-D

andreamarcum, posted on July 20, 2016

It was SO hot :) I was totally melting, but you can't beat the view. Thanks so very much for practicing with me! xx A

Wow! Just gorgeous at the end of a long day. Thanks dude! I will be returning to your videos for SURE :D x x x

Thank you @ROSEMARYELEN! It's nice to imagine that we're actually arriving and thriving in Costa Careyes regardless of our long day, don't you think? I totally appreciate you practicing with me! xx A

'Marcum' for the win. Andrea you are the reason I have an almost daily yoga practice. Thank you for checking all my boxes!!! Keep doing what you do!

andreamarcum, posted on July 18, 2016

Just adore you! Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your joyful practicing and for sharing the love. xx A

There is an abundance of variety on Gaia! I have followed it daily for two years and sometimes new videos don't match what I am looking for but then I go back to old ones. I am sure that Gaia tech people can pretty much work out what is being watched and how often - without the need for the passive aggressive nature of the comment below . Andrea and Troy are both gifted in their own unique teaching style and offer so much to the community. I have gained abundant strength and happiness (for my mind and body) through their teachings I felt compelled to highlight that after the comment below. Missi_B why post a comment like this? why not just end your subscription?It adds nothing but negativity - I know nothing more about the class that you have posted it under.

andreamarcum, posted on July 18, 2016

I am copying my reply from below as I believe it may be sent to your inbox this way. Deep appreciation to you for being a dedicated part of our Gaia family! <3

I am a passionate believer that Yoga is more about the flexibility in our hearts than it is our hips or hamstrings, and I welcome all feedback. I also believe that both Yin and Yang are essential within our yoga practice and our yoga sadhana (pilgrimage)... so we agree. My I Just Need Some Space practice in particular mixes those elements, and my Close To OM series has restorative and meditative book ends with a softer flow practice between. AND there are SUCH fabulous other teachers here like my friends Gina Caputo and Ashleigh Sergeant just to name a couple. I would love to have you and @stojanovic_jels join me for the restorative practice which will soon be part of this Taming The Timezone series. Though it is part of a travel series, I believe restorative is essential as we travel about our lives, don't you? Grab your lavender oil and get ready to Relax and Renew :) I know I speak for all of us at Gaia when I say thank you for practicing with us. xx A - See more at: http://www.gaia.com/video/arrive-and-thrive#comment-626881

Sorry to say, but I really miss the diversity of teachers and styles of yoga that we used to have in MYO.
Marcum is here all the time, and she's very keen with a strong, rigid, athletic kind of yoga, when many of us (I believe) are searching for more gracefully fluid practices, sometimes unusual, surprising, playful, also more delicate ones,... meaning, the oposite of Marcum. Stressing that this doesn't mean by any way less challenging classes! I'm talking about all levels of yoga classes, but in a different "mood".
Yes, there was an improvement in bringing us a large number of new classes (since the merging), that's what made me back to Gaia's subscription, but the true is that more quantity wasn't acompanied by more quality-diversity.
So, between tons of A. Marcum classes (series of), also lots of T. Hadeed and an endless series of short practices (really?? season 2??), not to mention the esoteric talks that should obviously belong to GAIA's sections "Seeking True" or "Spiritual Growth", what happens is that I always keep coming mostly to the "old" classes of MYO teachers.

ConTodo, posted on July 20, 2016

I think there are many Vinyasa classes with a gracefully fluid, playful practice. Actually, I think that the majority of the classes here are this style. I personally think that sometimes, they are delicious, but often stress the shoulders or require a lot of flexibility which I find very difficult in the morning. That's why I prefer Hatha or Kundalini in the morning.
What I like a lot about Andrea's style is that it's building strength. In my yoga classes, I often see students that are flexible but show a lack of stability and strength. I find it important to work on both parts strength and flexibility/fluid moves.

NicoleUrdang, posted on July 19, 2016

Namaste,
As a fellow practitioner, and someone who came to the original MYO years ago, I understand your comment.
Personally, I find there are days when Andrea's classes hit the spot and other times when a Yin or Restorative class is just perfect.
I also love a practice, like David Malone's, that includes breath work; and, if the teacher throws in some yogic philosophy, as I think Andrea does, I'm even more blissed out.
I still think there are a plethora of options for all styles of teaching on Gaia, including some very deep, slower, Hatha informed ones.

andreamarcum, posted on July 19, 2016

As always so insightful! I totally value your ongoing dedication to MYO as we all evolve together. Growth and learning are part of the stretch for us all, aren't they? HUGE love to you and thank you for connecting. xx A

Replace "new time zone" with "new day" and you have a beautiful morning practice and start to your day. Adding this to my early mornings for sure.
