Moon Salutation Yoga Class

Available worldwide

A vinyasa yoga class taught by Clara Roberts-Oss with emphasis on backbending and lengthening hamstrings. Warming the lower back and legs through moon salutes, go deeper into a backbending practice. This sequence will explore different backbends from standing bow to variations of camel. To counter balance, lengthen the hamstrings moving towards hanuman (splits pose), and ending with some juicy lower back releases.

I wish that every video on Gaiam featured Clara. Her instruction is far and away superior to any other yogi on this site.

We appreciate your thoughts on the practice, and on the instructor!
You can find all of Clara's videos with us here:

Moon Salutation does not mean easy. Truly excellent.

I loved the more traditional style of this class, and the flowing way in which progressions were offered, it's definitely one that I will be doing again!

Thank you Clara. That was a beautiful, fluid practice. I feel so calm, so still. My spine feels long and my heart feels open. Namaste.

sabineschulte, posted on June 29, 2014

Beautiful and heart opening flow! I did what you said at the end of class: "Thank your body for this practice. Thank yourself for making time for this practice and thank your breath to be your guide!" ……and I also want to THANK YOU, Clara! Namaste!

Love this class!

This was an amazing class! Namaste.

NicoleUrdang, posted on February 3, 2014

Happy hamstrings and deep Hanumans make this an excellent practice. Lots of backbends, some twists, and an inversion really balance this out beautifully.
Thank you!

pranayama22, posted on January 28, 2014

Tortoise and Hanuman and peacock. I need to practice these. Great teacher. With gratitude.

6 months ago I injured my shoulder and developed frozen shoulder. I couldn't even do a basic down dog. The past 6 months have been so hard trying to regain strength and movement in my shoulder. I finally am able to do this class again for the first time...not perfectly but I am so appreciative of being able to move my body again and to feel how wonderful this class helps my body feel. thank you Clara. I never fully appreciated when you say"thank your body for this practice."

BlissAngel, posted on December 27, 2013

I really loved this practice- I like when Clara has a calm yet serious demeanor during the practice, it made this one very enjoyable. Thanks again!

I used this nice practice later on this evening as mood enhancer when feeling sad and it worked. so thanks

AmandaRuffini, posted on October 30, 2013

This practice is fantastic for getting into the hips, hamstrings and side waists! Just what I needed today! Namaste

acroyogamonkey, posted on August 16, 2013

good overall. seems like a short practice though. the lunges are good for opening the hips and theres a few good cobra backbends

hkaccoufa, posted on August 1, 2013

fabulous class Clara , thank you

elizabeach, posted on May 5, 2013

I enjoyed this practice. Challenging, yet with options. A few new poses (peacock and turtel). Nice long savasana . I expected more of a lunar flow due to the moon salutations, but great any time of day. Thank you.

dzytkoskee, posted on April 22, 2013

Thanks Clara! This is a great sequence..nice flow, nice language! I feel wonderfully open in heart and body!

Perfect! Your classes are wonderful! Thanks

@Shielded, I'm back in Vancouver in January 2013. Check out my site for upcoming events and class schedule.

clararobertsoss, posted on December 22, 2012

@aruffini, peacock can be very challenging for most wrists. I recommend clawing the mat with your fingertips as you begin coming into the pose. Let me know if that helps.

AmandaRuffini, posted on December 21, 2012

It sometimes happens that my wrists begin to hurt during Peacock, am I doing something wrong? Is my alignment perhaps off?

Shielded, posted on November 25, 2012

I love your classes clara! When will you be doing a workshop in vancouver?

AmandaRuffini, posted on October 30, 2012

Beautiful practice, a perfect way to begin the day. Namate!

rya_2, posted on May 23, 2012

Such a sweet practice, felt very present throughout the flow. Love your classes Clara, Namaste

mkelly04, posted on April 12, 2012

What can I say? Beautiful just beautiful. Love you Clara

montlake, posted on April 3, 2012

It's not every day that I want a lunar practice, but since I did today, I found this really perfect: satisfying and not too easy.

tracyhmcd, posted on March 25, 2012

My first class of Clara's. Thank you so much - probably my favorite on this site! I'll be back to this one as well as others by Clara!
