I found her sequencing to be quite puzzling. Camel before standing poses, and then the standing pose sequence offers no real alignment cues and is uneven from side to side. Additionally, she uses the "yoga teacher" voice. On the plus side, she has a lovely practice and some might enjoy the flowing nature of some of the sequences, and she seems quite heartfelt and sweet.

what is the playlist for this flow? I love it

Relle.leeds, posted on September 15, 2014

Definitely more relaxing than "sweaty" but a nice class :)

At once a beautiful, transfixing, enlivening dance and a nicely balanced asana practice. Lovely!

Mara I love all that you do! Thanks again for an amazing practice!

Fantastic practice: challenging, comprehensive, perfect amount of time, and absorbing.

The best video so far! Thank you soooo much Mara...

I love the insights you bring to the practice. I feel my body from the inside out, and that to me is a beautiful gift. The arm balances are fun and challenging, but it's your instruction for alignment and that movement inward that make this for advanced practioners. Love it!

Really incredible comprehensive, challenging class.
Thank you!

"Dynamic Vinyasa for Strength and Balance" - Mara, I have never seen this video before but was wonderin if you have you ever been in my class? With the exception of a couple of things, this is EXACTLY what I've been teaching my students the past month. Hmmm.

Very pretty Vinyasa practice. More soothing than sweaty for me. Going to my FAV's.

AmandaRuffini, posted on September 12, 2012

Quite quick pased (and a little hard to follow the narration at times) but this practic was exactly what I needed today to iron out the anxiety of the day! Thank you for helping to restore my balance, namaste!

This was simply amazing. I loved LOVED every second of this class. Thank you so much and I love your voice too. :)

A very calming, relaxed practice. In many ways a classical vinyassa practice with a series of sun salutations. I really liked the flowing camel pase with gurudassana arms. Other than jumping into crow (once) and the full shoulder stand option, I didn't think there were a lot of advanced poses.

Loved it!

Wonderful, just the right combination of being challenging and soothing. Thank you.

GREAT for heart-pumping yoga, fast flow, gets blood pumping right away.

I am so relieved after this flow. My body, mind and spirit needed this release. Thank you again.

Thanks so much Mara for creating such an amazing flow. Your soothing voice and dynamic combination of poses makes this a balancing and inspiring practice. Namaste.

Sasha85, posted on June 17, 2011

Best class yet!
Mara, everything about you as amazing - your flow, your energy and your voice. Thank you!!!

kgmah, posted on June 7, 2011

Great class but the first 45 mins I didn't have an image ... Just followed along to the sound... :(

AUM, posted on March 10, 2011

Favorite Class thus far, I look forward to doing it again and again! Thank you. Namaste

sarahzsimmons, posted on February 2, 2011

Loved this class! Mara has a soothing quality in her voice and I don't even think about what my body is doing, it just does it. What music is it? i have been trying to find one of her songs for ages. If anyone knows please say it! :) looking for more of Maras intermediate/advanced vinyasas. They are my favorite, and so challenging.

Lyndsiecoon, posted on January 28, 2011

Wonderful and inspiring class. Thank you so much.

StrongSister1, posted on January 12, 2011

Mara, you move beautifully and gracefully. I love this class. It inspires me to be better, to be calmer and to love my body for the work it allows me to do.. Thank you! I feel a warm sense of accomplishment.

alisonchurch, posted on January 8, 2011

I really enjoyed this practice! It was certainly challenging, but I thought the pace was fantastic. I felt wonderful after completing it and look forward to adding it into my regular practice. Would love to see more videos from her!

david_amsterdam, posted on November 15, 2010

wow.... what a nice feeling... a good way to start the day....

LaurenCug, posted on November 9, 2010

A good class, especially for opening hamstrings and hips, but the verbal instructions weren't very clear for me. Make sure you have your computer screen in front of you to help you follow the sequences.

jmadden7171, posted on October 11, 2010

wow that was amazing..thank you

juleemoon, posted on October 6, 2010

Yoni, posted on October 4, 2010

great class. good instructor. I hope you bring more classes from her.

Talia_2, posted on October 3, 2010

Great class; quiet and peaceful yet active. I discovered flexibility in my hips that I never knew I had. The class was just what I needed after spending 10 hours /day seated in class!

Alice100, posted on October 1, 2010

I absolutely love this class! My favourite so far. Please can we have more from this teacher!!!

yogawithmark, posted on September 27, 2010

Very very well done.

TaliaYoga, posted on September 15, 2010

what music is this?

lilacwine, posted on September 5, 2010

A great, challenging workout! I couldn't finish the whole thing the first time but it will give me something to work up to. :) Thanks for continuing to add new classes and new instructors! I learn something new from each teacher, both physically and spiritually. Keep up the great work, MYO!

kalimama, posted on September 5, 2010

A challenging but fun flow! Great to see some poses that are usually seen in the other videos. And I really loved the chest tapping for release. This practice left me with a totally light (as in, buoyant) feeling to greet the day. Thank you!!

plathekl, posted on September 1, 2010

That was fantastic yoga! Fairly challenging and kept very interesting - will definitely add this to my list of regular practices. Thank you and looking forward to more!

poniline, posted on August 31, 2010

Hi tapmom
Yes, we do have more classes coming from Mara; at more moderate levels, and shorter lengths.
Glad you are enjoying!

tapmom, posted on August 30, 2010

Great workout! Is there any way that MyYogaOnline can get Mara to give us a video that is not so advanced and maybe about 40 minutes in length...working may way to completing the entire video. Thank you so much for giving us great yoga.

forbsey, posted on August 29, 2010

Thanks Kreg, I appreciate the advice and will certainly work on following it...I'll keep you posted on my progress.
