Tried this for the first time and really enjoyed it. Was a great step out of the beginner beginner into a few more challenging poses. But not overwhelming.

Fantastic instructor. I love the flow, the energy, the creativity. Only negative was the music became way too surreal and distracting for me at the end.

Did it as morning yoga. Feel nice and stable.

I got a lot knocked off my yoga practice in the past two weeks with travel, a hectic work schedule and worse, a potentially serious health threat for my husband. I've been really much more stressed than I was acknowledging and I could feel my life/balance upending. My heart just hasn't been into my practice lately, so I didn't need to be hit over the head to return to Heart of a Mountain. This is one of my "go-to" classes that allows me to both exercise and find my inner calm.
I appreciate clear guidance and empowering instruction that ISN'T the "look at how perfectly I can do this pose" method some of these video instructors have (you can tell who the Yogis are). I am very grateful to you Cameron for your calm, clear and gentle teaching style. I can listen to your instruction while focusing on my breath and posture so I am able to achieve the growth and peace I am seeking in my practice. I found myself so very grounded this morning after this session. Namaste Yogi!

Cameron provided excellent instruction with continuing reminders of our intention to become grounded. I will look forwarded to more of his classes.

A beautiful practice. I feel grounded, yet energized. Namaste.

Love all of Cameron's videos, but the music at the end of this one was a little creepy, was there something wrong with the track? Didn't seem to fit. I'm glad it wasn't just my speakers from other comments I read. I hope that it gets fixed!

This is my favorite yoga class/video, ever! It’s only the 2nd class I’ve done on myyogaonline.com, but I’ve been studying/practicing yoga for about 13 years and still think that this is my favorite. I loved everything from the focus of the class - tadasana, to the scenery in Whistler (loved the boat floating by near the end), the slow movement and instructions, the series of poses, the length we held the poses, the savasana in child’s pose... I’ll be sure to seek out more of Cameron’s classes. Thank you!

I'm a new mom and wake up daily with shoulder and neck pain from nursing and co-sleeping. This class made me feel SO GOOD. I literally feel like my body just WOKE UP. Thank you! I added a few neck rolls and happy baby pose and yummm...

Hey, I really enjoyed this video - and as always your guidance. I wanted to let you know (I could be wrong?) but I think there's something wrong with the music at the end - I noticed it during child's pose. Thanks for a lovely session.

strauss5marija, posted on November 19, 2013

fantastik, thank you very much,I must work more with you, thank you, Namaste.

kachemak, posted on November 18, 2013

I am always taken in totally by your clarity, simplicity, naturalness, sense of calm, accessibility and generously shared, inspirational wisdom. I enjoy other instructors too, but coming back to you always proves to be the richest, most beneficial and delicious class, from both the perspective of a student and of a yoga instructor - always seeking new ways to present concepts. Thank you. Do you conduct YTT 500 hr. courses?

jkimpton, posted on October 29, 2013

This is a nice short practice that will leave you feeling really good. A very grounding practice.

Jazelyoga, posted on October 26, 2013

This is one of my favorite yoga videos. The only thing I don't like is the background music especially towards the end. It sounds "spooky" and I could not relaxed even if I try. Other than that this is a great session.

Murph, posted on October 14, 2013

Loved this video. Cameron you have an amazing way about you. You make me feel special and help me make my "self" feel special. Thanks

tammra, posted on October 14, 2013

This class really felt close to Home (I live in Squamish). This practice challenged me both with balance and strength! Love it! Thank you Cameron

maribethashburn, posted on October 1, 2013

Excellent session. I will mark this as a favorite and do often. Namaste

Jazelyoga, posted on August 22, 2013

My day will not be complete without Cameron. He is such a good teacher and I feel at peace and contented about myself, about who I am. Thank you. Namaste ...

nmakan, posted on May 20, 2013

thanks Cameron - love coming back to your teaching. And the music you use to accompany your classes. Do you know where do I can find 10 West tracks? I have googled them and tried Spotify but can't seem to find them.

jdabanka, posted on May 11, 2013

My first yoga session ever. Wonderful!!

Thank you! That was so awesome :)

Janices46, posted on March 2, 2013

came home from a long day grinding and trying to talk myself out of any activity. This class is slow and deep and I feel a million times better. Thank you Cameron. I will see you first thing in the morning before work.

kayleighl, posted on February 25, 2013

Amazing video! Exactly what I needed :) The only thing better would have been doing the class on that beautiful dock!

Kd3105, posted on February 24, 2013

This was fantastic! I'm very new to yoga, and the descriptions and guidance were perfect for me, I did the entire practice with my eyes closed! I will do more of Cameron's classes. Thank you.
