I leave this practice feeling very grounded. It provides a beautiful opportunity for the body to open and to release. Thank you @nicoluce. Namaste.

This practice has been in my playlist for sometime now. So glad I picked your class for today. The drums will beat again and the cycle will repeat. That made my heart smile. Thank you Nico!

nicoluce, posted on June 23, 2015

Yes, @TAPPIN1 keep moving to the beat of your drum.
To many more smiling hearts!

This was just what I needed! Even my SweetJ, My son, joined me for the last 20 minutes.. Well watched, he's 8 months. Got to start them young! Namaste!

I'm glad you enjoyed the practice, @MPOLSTER0714. Babies are natural yogis.

Thanks Nico. I am getting ready to embrace change. Namaste. Lola

nicoluce, posted on March 8, 2015

Change is the only permanent law, @LOLAYJEROME, mind as well embrace it.
Namaste, Lola!

Great flow with the right mix of twists and arm balances to keep the prana moving generously throughout the entire practice.

nicoluce, posted on March 8, 2015

I'm glad you liked it, @DBRHTURNER01.

Thank you Nico!
I started taking your classes as part of the 21 day detox and now I'm hooked. Your flows have a great pace with great instruction. I like to be challenged but can't always get into the poses. I do a variation and feel strong and at peace at the end of your practices.

nicoluce, posted on March 8, 2015

That's it, @MYANT3, modify the poses that don't work for you at this moment in time and make the practice fit where you are at.
Be well,

freya5, posted on March 5, 2015

loved this. what a wonderfully challenging but calm and fluent flow.

nicoluce, posted on March 5, 2015

Glad you liked it, @FREYA5

Amazing as always. Keep pushing us up. I enjoy the slow rhythm of the practice which however leaves you toned and stronger. Hope to make it to leukada Niko . Anna from Greece

nicoluce, posted on March 5, 2015

Thank you, @ANNA71.
Hope you make it to the retreat!

montlake, posted on March 4, 2015

I think this is Nico only Advanced level class - I would love to see him in a new class at this level. Truly nice!

nicoluce, posted on March 5, 2015

More are coming, @montlake
Which one is your favourite advanced asana?

montlake, posted on March 5, 2015

I don't know if you mean my favorite advanced class of your classes or in general. What I liked about this class was some of the more interesting advanced poses like bound triangle, bound twisting half moon, and that Camel pose with the foot up! They were really awesome! I would like to see your classes a little bit more challenging in the cardio-vascular area. Some of my overall favorite advance classes include Live Hilde's Dance of the Firefly, Janet Stone's Ananda Vinyasa, and Meghan Currie's Honey. I look forward to seeing more of your classes!

nicoluce, posted on March 5, 2015

I meant your favourite pose or even group of poses, @MANTLAKE
Let me know so I include them in the next video.

montlake, posted on March 7, 2015

Sorry I got confused there. It is really so sweet of you to ask! I am particularly into handstands these days--I especially love wide legged press handstand (though I jump up and practice near a wall). I also really love forearm stand and the scorpion variations. I love to have some kind of challenging focused core work in every practice. And binding twists that turn into balance poses are also great! Though I am not a big Ashtanga fan, I do like a couple of jump throughs (I have not mastered the jump though, but if I never do it, I never will!) And lastly challenging backbending pose variations! I guess that's a lot! I look forward to your next class! Thanks so much! Devora

Beautiful yoga flow. Powerful, yet meditative, great cueing, thank you.
Namaste, Mirela

I'm glad you liked it, @mirelan !

lisaevp, posted on March 4, 2015

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
I LOVED this practice.
I am still not able to do some of the arm balances, but I am starting to feel more and more comfortable.
And your words make it easier for me not to get frustrated when it doesn't happen.
This is a go to practice for me now.

nicoluce, posted on March 5, 2015

Thank you for your comment, @lisaevp !
Always keep in mind that yoga is not WHAT we do but rather HOW we do it.

gab, posted on March 4, 2015

hahha loved the mutant camel, mine was definitely mutated. I could have sworn you said there were three elements of arm balances but then I must have tuned out because I didn't hear what they were, so could you tell me again. Lovely words as usual thank you

nicoluce, posted on March 5, 2015

Hi @gab,
I can't remember exactly what I said on the video, but surely it has to do with this three tenets: Foundation, Integration and Expression. The foundation needs to be stable and solid, with hands outer shoulder distance apart and fingers wide spread and active. The integration from the ground up needs to include engaged arms, proper scapula placement and core recruitment. The expression must be one of balance between effort and ease (input and output)
Hope this helps!

I can usually do just fine with 'advanced' practices.... although that is not the case with Nico Luce Advanced practices. I did really enjoy what I could do and I loo forward to being able to do all these crazy poses. Until then I will stick to more Intermediate Nico classes.

nicoluce, posted on February 16, 2015

Thanks for your comment. I personally think that advanced yoga is not about WHAT we do but rather HOW we do it. There is no problem in modifying poses or even skipping them for a while until we fell ready for them. Never let the practice dim your light, keep up the "fuego"!

OneLove2002, posted on January 30, 2015

Such a beautiful practice, it feeds my body and my spirit. That is why I keep returning to it. Namaste Nico. Note to self: there is a different variation of Koundinyasana in this practice. Revisit it. It was fun and I was really able to fly on the left. In my usual approach to the pose, I can only fly on the right.

nicoluce, posted on February 2, 2015

Nice to hear that a different approach worked for you. That's usually the case, isn't it? We have to try a different way to get a different result.

MrsWFG, posted on September 17, 2014

Challenging practice for me . I loved it ! Namaste

OneLove2002, posted on September 13, 2014

Thank you Nico for that beautiful class. That was the first time I have practiced with you, and I enjoyed the meditative nature of your teaching, as well as the challenging nature of the arm balances. I will definitely try your other classes. Namaste.

Amazing! Thank you!

Thank you Nico for another beautiful practise.

What a wonderful practice, thank you Nico. Namaste

WendyMarie, posted on January 26, 2014

I love this practice! I have lower spine scoliosis - and I felt an opening in that area. So grateful ;)

nicoluce, posted on September 25, 2013

@flexiblecat @madri28 Thank you both for your feedack and kind words. I'm happy you liked it. All the best, nico

flexiblecat, posted on September 23, 2013

I love this calming, meditative practice of yours, Nico! Somehow you have the ability to guide me so that I can get in to asanas. Same time you tell that it´s not so serious if you dont´t succeed with these asanas which is also very nice thing to say. I think your practices are near yoga´s genuine roots. Namaste.

madri28, posted on September 22, 2013

So good... this is the kind of yoga I enjoy, slow pace, challenging and with a big heart

carlamenendez, posted on August 4, 2013

When I tried this practice it came up as a 4 minute sample. I can't seem to get the full practice. Help!

Wonderful. Thank you.

bornheim, posted on April 11, 2013

Great teacher and class. I enjoy the pace that Nico brings to all of his classes. Thank you.
