i just join this community over the weekend and tried out a few beginner instructions and then tried this one tonight when i got home from work. Thank you for your great instruction. I very much enjoyed this, although i could not do all the poses and found it challenging, but i hope to continue to progress and get better as i learn. Thanks so much.

@STyler @Andy1023 @Tennielle thanks for the support! Keep practicing! LOVE

I really dug this, thank you! I was a bit wary of POWER yoga, expecting it to be a more aerobic style practice, sort of yoga for people who really want to be doing zumba or some such; this was a great introduction, lots of advice and guidance, and some interesting and challenging poses thrown in. I was surprised actually at how open my hips have become. 50 minutes flew by!

Thanks again!

Breath is truly the focus and lead in this practice, gently moving the body through flow and into poses. Mental focus on breathing and the sound of it keeps the mind from wandering. It's a lesson and/or reminder, and unusual to encounter in my experience, other than in kundalini. I loved that when easing into warrior pose, at the exact moment my mind began to wander, Ryan quoted something like: "...remember it's not worrier pose, it's warrior pose." Thank you Ryan.

I really enjoyed your video Ryan , thank you . Nice way to start my day feel much more energized

@JillianL I will keep it in mind. Do Uth Pluthi everyday at the end of practice (before Savasana) and you will eventually float! @reidsurf COme and see me soon or come to Iceland this summer. OM

Hey Ryan,

I have a question about strength building. I have nothing else to do but yoga everyday but I'm still not pressin' into handstand. Would you be willing to do a vid on strength building excercises that lead into handstand and its cool relatives?

Thank you for all your awesome vids

Thanks for a great class! We met Dustin in Nicaragua so we were pretty excited when we found you on here. Hope to come to Vancouver or Saskatoon one day soon to visit your studio.

Just what I needed this morning! Ryan's pace and softness was ideal - I could feel my body energy loosen up and relax.

joanieyoga, posted on October 10, 2012

Thank you for the great teaching. I enjoyed the breathing is very helpful

camillasrap, posted on October 10, 2012

Thanks Ryan, dont normally do power yoga these days...but this morning...well there you were.....I enjoyed mucho and felt my body open up. Your soothing dulcid tones helped me along the way!

narellebitunjac, posted on October 9, 2012

This class was great for me (I can be a bit of a 'hard charger')...Ryan's instruction helped me let go and find softness in the poses and in myself. Thanks

I've been doing vinyasa power yoga for a while now, and have fallen into some bad habits. I learned a lot from this video on how to refocus my practice and get more out of it.

Jayamaa, posted on October 7, 2012

Ryan is very relaxed and so is his teaching. Excellent! And he looks like an Indian yogi from Himalaya!
