Thank you for this wonderful video.

this is a perfect practice because he gives variations for each pose challenging advanced yogis. seeing this gives beginners like me a goal of what i can also achieve if i stick to yoga while taking my slow beginners pace.

Thank you for the beautiful practice. The poses were challenging, but the pacing of the flow helped me keep the breath-body link the entire time. Namaste!

Give thanks Pedro for a great class...was a little challenging at moments, but with a beautiful flow....Loved it. Shame you didnt do meditation at end, was hoping you were about to guide one.

Pedro, This is one of my all time favorite life experiences. Your classes fit my definition of a blissful life. Natalie

I love this practice. Each time I do it, I find more strength with the challenging aspects and more softness with the breath, transitions, and sustained balances. The mudras connect purpose and movement in an artful way. I feel like peace-full warrior goddess after the practice. Thank you. (And it's fun!)

Love so much your pacing and the addition of mudras in practice

This segment is my the one I keep coming back to on this site :-) Pedro's sexiness and speed is perfect for my intermediate yoga motivations. Thank you Pedro!

My absolute favorite so far. Thank you. I have been looking for a practice inspired by capoeira and I was very pleased with this.

Love this! Very challenging for me but enjoyed it very much. Thank you.

Cas73, posted on December 30, 2013

thank you - fantastic class. No problem with the flexibility - need to work on some more upper body and core strength to follow some of those arm holds though - loved it!

flexiblecat, posted on December 2, 2013

This class is perfect when I want to challenge myself. Some movement surprisingly reminds me of aikido I was training earlier. Martial arts is one thing I would liked to see more in MYO.

For me, the perfect balance of some flow, but also holding poses. Lengthening and strengthening. I loved seeing the advanced poses, knowing where to go and what to work toward. Great pace. Namaste.
