It's a beautiful practice, and like other videos, it is better the second and subsequent times you practice. It's different and unpredictable, and I'm not that familiar with Shannon's style so it took a couple of times to get in sync with her. Second time through was divine. Thank you.

Im not new in yoga.I do not prefere Shanon way of yoga, but I found this practise very good as the latest 5 episodes that are more real hatha yoga.Shanon is doing more fast and for me dificult way to follow and to relax practise that I feel more frustrated then exellent.But I will follow every practise of Shanon that she will make like those episodes in moving meditation,Shakti etc. Thank you for this one Shanon.About the head for other people you should not look up until you feel safe and good, so look down people when doing dificult asanas and in the way of your heart and no problem for your neck.Neck is very sensible and you do not have to follow always what teacher demand, you should always make modification for your best of that day and adopt your body to your feeling of that day practise and your sensations,never push up, over your limits.Thank you Shanon Namaste Sun and Light I love to have more practise in future with you that I can realy enjoy hatha yoga.:)

For me your cues where fine I could follow them and enjoyed your flow. As it is winter in the UK right now I feel it might have been a good idea to explain the duration of the rest period as I had to pull out due to being cold and not having blankets near me to cover up. I too loved the poem :-) and actually really enjoyed the words you shared though out the whole process, thank you I will join you again just with a few more blankets :-)

confusing cues

jkimpton, posted on November 24, 2015

I enjoyed this practice though not as much as I usually do from you because I kept having to look up to see what you were doing so some of the cueing must have been off. I loved the poem during the restorative part. I have a question though. I notice that you often use the exhalation with extension and inhalation with flexion. This is counter to most yoga I am familiar with and goes against the natural rhythm of the body. I am curious if there is a specific purpose for this?

I did not find this flow to be opening, calming or restorative. Her voice and style of teaching were just not right for me.

Shannon is speaking too fast for a beginner to follow. By the time I have looked at the screen to figure out what she is talking about, she's moved on to the next pose. Not the best session for beginners...

For me this was just perfect...looking forward to do this many times again!

Loved the thoughtful flow, but really too much talking for me during restorative poses.

Yes, I found myself wishing for moments of silence during the restorative portion of the class.

Maybe a little too descript at times esp the last part of meditation and relaxation. Clear demos and best for beginners or people not having good flexibility. Definitely take some of it into the next class I teach. Thanks

Although I can understand the connection you were trying to make Shannon, I constantly found myself disconnected through your choice words of communicating the next poses. I just couldn't relax into the poses and became so frustrated, I just turned it off. Perhaps try to cue using words we all understand, as it is clear you love what you do but you just didn't hit the mark for me in this Yoga Video.....better luck next time!

The cuing was difficult to follow and all the extraneous words made it harder.

you got your lefts and rights mixed up once! it happens I know for all us teachers, but I assumed you'd go through it to check before it went online.... nice flow though! :)

I was eager to do this video but the prompts for the poses were phrased in a way where I wasn't sure what pose we were still in and I had to disrupt any type of flow to keep looking up (while reminding myself not to kink my neck) in order to see what was going on. I think it would be helpful to deliver the name of the next pose before starting with the point by point anatomical positioning. I am not sure what type of yoga that is that is so cerebral (anusara? iyengar?) but now I know that it gives me too much of a monkey mind when I just want to flow in my body and not think too much.

Even though it was a nice slow flow, I found myself having to look up at the monitor to see what she was doing. Disappointed as I could not finish and was looking forward to a nice restorative practice.

Sorry, but I found this very hard to follow :(

I love your classes Shannon, this was wonderful . The poem I would love to hear again, I know you have done others but I can't remember who your favorite was. I also prefer the spoken to the voice over videos , you are awesome !

mamayogini, posted on November 5, 2015

I'd hoped for more of an asana flow before the restorative postures... I didn't feel my body had really been given the chance to move and open before coming into stillness... the restorative work in itself was lovely, but the balance of the whole wasn't quite right for me (I wasn't prepared to lie down for so long so also hadn't got enough layers of clothing available... it would be good to give a heads up about this before starting; I really needed my one blanket over me but didn't know it was going to have to serve a different purpose)... others - take note!
Shannon, I prefer your led practices rather than the voice overs.
