This slow flow beginner class with Clara Roberts-Oss is for those who are new to the practice. We will go through sun salutations and standing poses very slowly to really understand what each pose is asking of us. Great for those looking for a very gentle flow.

I loved this video. Clara is my favorite instructor, but this was perfect for me. It allowed me to practice the basics and really concentrate on each pose while still working up a sweat. The perfect pace. Left me feeling positive and wonderful. Her quote at the end was what I needed to hear. Thanks, Clara!

Will come back to this practice again. Felt incredibly grounded through each pose. Clara gives excellent postural cues. Thanks Clara!

This practice was wonderful. Perfect pace for me. I prefer a slow juicy practice and I would say this is definitely not just for beginners. Thank you Clara

I just did this routine this AM. I'm NOT new to yoga and still got a great workout. Sometimes it's great just to slow down and take your time.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! No matter what the practice, Clara always grounds, balances & invigorates the body, mind & Spirit. Cheers ~

Thank you Clara! I have been avoiding yoga and your practice has motivated me to begin working towards a habit. I feel so good!

This class was exactly what I needed. Thank you!

Much of my yoga practice is to complement my other activities. So I seek very gentle and easy wake-up stuff. This is really nice, but definitely not for the brand new yogi.

This is such a beautiful practice. I feel as though my heart is singing after it. Definitely a frequent practice for me. Thank you Clara! Namaste <3

I am dealing with deep depression and have not been getting any exercise. You have made this a nice slow wonderful way to start. You give me hope that I can do this and even advance! Again, thank you.

Wonderful class. I was afraid it would be to "easy" for me after 30 years of practice, but to my delight it was perfect....I could challenge myself more if I wanted.... but found it not really necessary as I melted into each delicious pose.

CJoyinLife, posted on September 10, 2014

Thankyou for such a delicious practice - after working through a chronic illness I have found myself as a beginner again and this sequence keeps bringing me back to my mat - instructions are clear, pace is just right and there are enough challenges to keep me growing.

such a lovely flow, thank you xx

In truth. Every time I do this season I feel brand new.

One of my favorite video thank u so much

This practice is perfect for me. Her pace is just right, and the instruction is wonderful. For most of the poses and transitions I can follow her verbal instruction so I don't need to watch the screen all the time. I'll be using this routine often!

Beautiful, thank you! Wonderful way to end the day!

This class was a well-needed reset button on my home practice. Thank you Clara for all that you do.

Love it!!

Love this! It was the first video I tried and I've come back to it several times. I love how clearly you describe things and the sound of your voice. I just with you had more beginner videos! x

@blogue You might like Cameron Gilley or Kreg Weiss's classes, and we also have a beginner program you could check out! It's under the 'programs' tab near the top of the homepage. -Jaime and the MyYoga Team

The joy, the profound wholesome energy which was ignited through this practice, I'm finding hard to describe through words. Tears flowed as you recited the Robert Gates quote, and after a few minutes reflecting on it, I was compelled to give it another listen. Thank you so much for this practice, for helping to introduce me to poses in ways I've not before been taught. I feel renewed and awakened, to say the least. All my love. Jonathon.

blogue, posted on January 25, 2014

I just joined this site and this was the first video I did. I thought it was very good. I have done probably around 20 yoga classes in the last 2 years, none before. So basically just getting into yoga. My goal is more flexibility, especially in hips. Anyone have any suggestions for a newbie for some good stretching yoga videos?

KrissyMomo07, posted on January 14, 2014

Great class. I also thought it may be too easy but am glad now that I choose it. Thanks for taking the time to make this video and help to get me started on the road to regular yoga again :)

Rubytooshoes, posted on January 9, 2014

I enjoyed this class, at first I thought it would be too easy and we wouldn't do many asanas. But thank you Clara, this was a nice workout.

amysuehayes, posted on January 8, 2014

Thank you Clara and folks for the slow, focused pace of this class, I really enjoyed it.

Xoung, posted on January 8, 2014

This was my very first video trying out Yoga and this was really good, I feel stretched and relaxed.

Thank you for the alternative video! I am part of the challenge, and the other video seemed to intense. I'm slowly getting back into shape after my second baby.

Thanks you for this slower pace perfect fr th evening to focus on detail and accomplishing our intention in each pose no matter where we are. Namaste

B-health, posted on January 1, 2014

This is exactly the practice I needed tonight! Offered me a gentle way to be with my practice, yet honor the beauty and breath of yoga. Thank you for making this gentle class. I will do it often as it allows space to heal. Nice. Peace.

susieevans, posted on December 31, 2013

This was my first "" class and it was a great, basic, and much-needed practice. Thank you Clara for your guidance. The quote was perfect as well.

Mac75, posted on December 31, 2013

Great class. Although I had to take a break in the middle sitting in childs pose. :)

Darkness28, posted on December 21, 2013

This practice felt amazing after a long day, thank you!

caitlinquinnwebb, posted on December 2, 2013

thank you, Clara! You are a beautiful, unique teacher with contagious intention. This was a perfect video to get back to basics after beginning yoga 6 months ago. I needed a relaxing refresher - perfect!

@pierinapineda My suggestion is to dabble, play, and find what teachers resonate most with you. If you'd like to stick to beginner friendly classes you can do so easily! Otherwise, just explore :) - Luke and the My Yoga Team

pierinapineda, posted on November 24, 2013

This was incredible! loved this practice! I tried yoga before, but more for fitness purposes than anything. I can now see that there is so much more to yoga. I just joined and I'm ready to start this journey! Any suggestions aside from online practices on how to start?
