And then the moment comes when you find an instructor who speaks to your soul. Wow. Liquid warmth for the body and purifying words for the soul. This practice is pure perfection. Thank you, Ryan.

Don't be put off by the "Advanced" label - I'm an intermediate student and this was very much do-able with all the modifications offered. Ryan's spirit and humor make this (and every one of his classes) a delight. Thank you, Ryan!!

I really enjoyed this practice. Thanks for posting!

acroyogamonkey, posted on November 18, 2013

excellent practice! challenging. loved the Buddha joke. great instructor. this is a good practice to get moving, strengthen and do some of the regular stretches. 100 + bicycles are tough. loved the story, really gets you thinking. ill have to do this class again!

The best part of waking filling up with yoga! Thank you brother. Ready for a midterm now, great pre-test practice.

I loved the Fire In the Belly class with Ryan Leier. Listening to him and watching him makes me go to a much more relaxed focused yoga practice. Thank you.

Such a beautiful practice! One of my favorites for sure! Definitely my favorite yoga teacher! I look forward to all of your practices! :)

Florencia, posted on October 27, 2013

Great practice, great yoga teacher, the audio is a little too low, yet really enjoyed it. Thank you!

yogalicious_2, posted on October 27, 2013

Great practice...great yoga teacher. My only wish is that Ryan spoke louder.

ReneeT06, posted on October 27, 2013

Enjoyed this class immensely! Much gratitude to you. Renee x

Hi @Larrycho
Sounds like you need to sign in with your user/pass. Then you can view the whole video.

frankielee, posted on October 25, 2013

@gretchenista yes, I found the same thing was happening to me; such an inspiring class, i was really getting into the whole philosophy of it all but the jerking and lagging behind in the instructions was constant. Still a wonderful class. Thank you for the gift of your yoga class and thankyou to future CA girl for sharing! Appreciate it!

Just did this one. I like it very much. It has everything you need for complete practice. Could not finish those bicycles and push ups jumps could not do at all

laurmorr13, posted on October 25, 2013

Oh Ryan, you crack me up.

tappin1, posted on October 25, 2013

Loved your story during the bicycle 100 , or I might not have made it. That was the most graceful handstand I have ever seen .

shajorah, posted on October 25, 2013

My belly was on fire :). I enjoyed this a lot!! Thank you,,

Sbald, posted on October 25, 2013

Simply beautiful <3 exactly what I needed today.

emmmuh, posted on October 25, 2013

Thank you for this practice, Ryan!! I've been on the hunt for something that is short and sweet with sequencing just like this. :)

gretchenista, posted on October 25, 2013

I finally finished this video after two hours of stopping and stopping over and over. I gave up on my iPad and went ahead and toggled the video on my PC even though it is more uncomfortable to do yoga in front of my PC. Even the video kept buffering and was often jerky and out of sync with the instructions. Ryan's class is inspiring as always and challenged me to do balances. I still had to do a headstand with a wall to help me balance. I tried to do my best, but I would have done better if the video didn't stop constantly. I learned that not doing my best is wasting my gift, and I should apply it in life. Once again, what a workout on my abs!

aromarose, posted on October 25, 2013

Thanks nice practice for the day.

Christinebissonnette, posted on October 25, 2013

So excited that I lasted for the full bicycle sequence. Thank you Ryan for an excellent practice!

@Larrycho Is because the full length videos is only for the premium member :(

Larrycho, posted on October 25, 2013

I´m confused; it says Duration:43 minutes; the video is only 3:05 minutes..
