love the balance between fluidity in sequencing, periodic alignment checks, sutras, and vinyasa with qi gong for grounding. would love to see more flows with a focus on worthiness and vulnerability! I wish meghan currie had some level 2 videos. not quite there yet for her amazing sequences. :)

I love all of Clara's classes and have been slowly going through all of them. This long one was a nice treat. My hips thank you Clara!

This is my all time favorite practice on this site. The hip release is amazing. Thank you for this process.

My intention was to try everything and be patient. I tried, modified and was patient. Now, to bring that intention off the mat into the world. Thank you, Clara.

Absolutely love your style! Such a breath of fresh air. When I get bored with my studio, I plug in to your class and am inspired again. Thank you for sharing your talent with me. I'm so very grateful for you.

Holy Hip Opener!

Vasaart, posted on November 10, 2013

A completely different hip opening flow from the one I did yesterday, but equally effective. Thank you.

That was wonderful. Thank you, Clara.

Truly excellent, though I would say intermediate level.

Today was my first day joining this website. And this is the first class I took. I am brand new to yoga, but absolutely LOVED the video. Thanks so much! I feel so open and relaxed. The hips feel amazing, especially on this cold rainy day.

BerlinYogini, posted on March 25, 2013

Beautiful class. I feel so relaxed and alive. Thanks for the practice!

yay my hips feel so loose and moveable now

Una clase hermosa.... gracias Clara

Apw, posted on December 22, 2012

Such a lovely flow, thank you!

I wouldn t consider the level "moderate" though - since Clara is correcting some of her friends during the class, a couple of poses are held for quite some time which made this sequence partly more challenging to me than Claras advanced classes.

What a great practice!

energiayoga, posted on November 22, 2012

Love her classes! Really enjoyed the pranayama at the end, & the passage you read. Wonderful. My only complaint is the use of 'sparkle' your fingers....breath into your eyelashes & toenails...if it does not serve the dialogue. You hear the same words in sooooooooooo many classes, no one talks like that in real life. You're a great teacher, that's not necessary.

Thank you Clara! You inspired me.

Simply beautiful. A complete, rounded, delightful practice with an amazing teacher.

This may be the wrong attitude; but I cannotwait until my body is able to accept this practice..

kayleegamblin, posted on October 3, 2012

This was a very challenging and wonderful practice thanks for this :) Namaste!

montlake, posted on August 12, 2012

I thought this was a beautiful, challenging, interesting, moderate practice. There were a few pose variations that I haven't seen. Thanks!

kayrush, posted on August 4, 2012

Great class, Clara. I have done most of your classes, some more than once and it is always a pleasure. Your sequences are perfect and logical, the timing is spot on, and your explanations are very clear with none of the usual rhetoric. You also have a very pleasant voice. Your classes are the only ones I can do without having to look at the video. Peace and love. Kay

KevinandLara, posted on July 24, 2012

Love this class and your other amazing classes available in this space, Clara! Thank you. Namaste~

What a beautiful and generous teacher you are.
Really enjoyed how your class flows so easily, great combinations... thank you.

sarahferguson, posted on April 3, 2012

I am really loving all your classes, Clara. This one is no exception, absolutely lovely. Thank you so much!!

I saved this to my favorites so I can always revert back to this practice for hip openers. After my surgery last year I've experienced great difficulty in loosening up in the hips. Clara's class was just what I needed to get my day started. Be well and Namaste.

MayC, posted on February 25, 2012

This is a great practice with not so typical hip openers. I have done it a few times and always topple a bit when I close my eyes during tree pose. Today for some reason I was able to serenely close my eyes, be still and breathe.
I love Clara's classes. One thing that I really appreciate is she often focuses on back bends. They aren't easy for me being 52, having had an accident or two etc. But it is great if I just allow myself to do what I can without pushing my body to go where it doesn't want to be.

tarama, posted on February 14, 2012

amazing class, thank you clara, you are the best teacher, namaste

MallinaCashew, posted on February 2, 2012

Thank You, again! Such a complete and flowing sequence. I really felt like I opened some blockages I had. Namaste

laurasimone, posted on December 3, 2011

Clara, you are an amazing teacher. Enjoy this class and your words so much.

sailornezy, posted on November 21, 2011

Thank you Clara for another amazing class!

emarlownp, posted on November 2, 2011

This is one of my favorite classes! it has it all - flexibility and strength work, a really lovely and long meditation at the end. I have done it many times and still find it challenging. I am always learning something new!

ngovna, posted on October 15, 2011

I love this class! I am athletic so tend to have very tight hips and hamstrings, but Clara leads a very natural flow and by the end, I actually felt my muscles release. It's been a long time since I had that "wobbly" feeling and a few days later I'm still able to connect to that additional space and movement in my hips. Thanks Clara, I've integrated your class in with my other workouts; I can absolutely see the benefit!

weskeam, posted on September 17, 2011

I find it very encouraging to watch a video where the instructor whispers "beautiful" as she surveys the class. It isn't directed at me but it works on me anyway!

MicheleWetzelHillman, posted on September 13, 2011

Groovy hips indeed. You will feel success from this class, simple and intense movements along with genuine experienced instruction complete this practice.
Cool format and bravo on the sound as I think it would be tough to mike this presentation.

Aurelie, posted on September 7, 2011

thanks thanks!!!! One of my favorite practicing of yoga ...... really deep,relaxing....
I really enjoy look at this kind of video......

clararobertsoss, posted on August 22, 2011

Hey Camilla,
the collective inhale means exactly that, let's inhale together. :)

camillasrap, posted on August 22, 2011

Enjoyed this class....there was one sound bite however "collectively inhale"..??? everyone inhale together?

dottie80209, posted on June 27, 2011
