Clara is getting to be my favorite!

I love, love, love this class. This is my go-to practice after a stressful day, to slow down, open up and breathe.

Just wondering though, does anyone else experience audio issues with this video, or is it just me? Clara's wonderful cueing has been somehow chopped up here and there - like someone cut up pieces of some of the phrases, sometimes even mid word, and moved them apart.

Won't stop me from doing this one though - permanently on my playlist.

Thank you Clara! This is a perfect sequence for recovery from mastectomy surgery. You are helping me to heal. :)

Being Valentine's Day I thought I'd share the love. I love how Clara just gets right to it. Without preface, she dives in guiding us through the thoughtfulness of the practice as we go. I always feel strong and peaceful after practicing with Clara. Clara, I thank you.

A great pace, warm up, intensity, and cool down. Agree- great mix of relaxing and active.

carpioadele, posted on November 11, 2014

I have been doing Clara's classes for a while and am really thankful to have found such a graceful teacher - in movement and voice. Boa is a great class for anyone looking to open up their flow in vinyasa. Powerful and moderately difficult class, yet remaining fluid and easy to move through the positions.
Thanks Clara :)

hildajarvis, posted on November 11, 2014

Thank you Clara! Very nice routine, love the breath moves, praying hands open fingers was new to me... i use open fingers in Qi-gong,

Very gracious and yet powerful moves.

Love your style!

KeithA@GTV, posted on November 18, 2014

@ hildajarvis - Power and grace indeed. Hope you are able to enjoy more of our videos from Clara.

A day does not go by when I do not practice with one of your routines. I had added this one to my list but was hesitant as it was labeled Eastern Arts and I foolishly thought I would need more knowledge. I am very glad I tried this fantastic practice, I feel wonderful and spacious and relaxed. I adore all of your practices and while I cannot pick a favourite, this practice is now high up on my list. Thank you Clara for your well thought out practices, your soothing voice, and expert instructions.

Thank you clara ! So special practice !

OneLove2002, posted on November 7, 2014

Thank you Clara, a beautiful way to start my day. I appreciated the slow, liquid nature of this practice. To move at this pace helps me to learn to be patient and mindful, and to surrender to the moment. Namaste .

jocelynandkristijan, posted on November 3, 2014

I love it. As I do all of Clara's. I felt so light and calm after, and very concentrated on the breath. Thank you.

EliseWach, posted on August 21, 2014

This is one of my favorite classes from you, Clara! Thank you for such a beautiful and deep practice.
The video is a little glitchy at the end, especially the last 10 minutes, but it hasn't kept me from doing this class several times. x

MichalL@Gaia, posted on November 2, 2014

Hi, we fixed the last part of the video ,thank you for letting us know!

mhjones, posted on April 28, 2014

I don't understand how my body feels so open and breath is so soft...but it really is. Boa breath and flow are so lovely. Thank you.

amberbachgorman, posted on July 10, 2013

Fantastic video - really made me stretch nicely. I feel so relaxed now that I've finished. I've done to of your videos Clara and I love your instructional style.

thank you, just divine:)

caycilia, posted on April 12, 2013

Thanks for another fabulous class, Clara :) I really liked the boa form bit at the beginning! As someone with good friends who practice and teach Chinese martial arts, I liked feeling like I got to experience a piece of that.

yogini73, posted on February 24, 2013

One simple word to describe this practice - "delicious".

ekochanska34, posted on February 21, 2013

Love this class, always come back to it. If you're like me and like high energy for morning, and soothing practice for evening, this is definitely an evening class. Very slow, relaxing and it down right puts me to sleep at the end. I can never do this is in the AM without at least a nap right after, and I always sleep so well after it. Thank you Clara, as always, you are my guide through yoga, I'm always looking for more classes from you.

DreamOcean, posted on February 18, 2013

Just what I needed after a very strong & long Sunday practice... I'm restored, soothed and more connected to myself. A beautiful and deliberate flow. Thank you Clara!
