What a beautiful practice - I loved how you inserted the science and ancient wisdom of the poses. This is surely one of the best practices that I have seem so far on Gaia.
I would like to know the significance of lying the side that is the clearest when coming up from Savasana?
Thank you

This class offered many new postures that made it playful and I found myself more present. Breath, philosophy and guidance was also beautiful. I'm ready to shine through the day! Thank you for a wonderful class!

I enjoyed the workout but thought the crossing arms repeatedly ended up hurting my shoulders after awhile...=[

A great practice to awaken my inner happiness once again. Thanks MC, for reminding me happiness is a choice just as much as a feeling! Loved some of those deep hip stretches as well, very much so needed.

A challenging practice with Mary Clare's comforting voice and positive affirmations, encouraging our movements and offering visualizations of a happier you! There are arm/shoulder twists, downward dog and a bit of knee stress, for those that struggle in these areas, but such a wonderful release, my favorite was the "flying angel" pose, it felt amazing and I will incorporate this into my daily routine! Thank you! Mary Clare Sweet is always such a beautiful spirit, you can't help but be happy!

Excellent heat building, unwinding practice using Eagle Arms to unlock all sorts of stuck energy I didn't even know was stuck! Super Class

What a wonderful practice. I have been in a bit of a rut, physically and mentally, and I am always struggling to be more positive. This was perfect, Mary Clare Sweet you are such a beautiful soul and your words have as much impact as your moves. I cannot thank you enough :)

Thanks Mary Clare Sweet. I always enjoy your classes, and benefitted from the talk on positivity and the practice to support it. Sequences challenged my habit patterns in asana and laid some new neural networks on different ways to move. Thanks for challenging me, and reminding me to keep my eyes eagle on positivity! Namaste.

Perfect timing, effort, spiritual connection. I feel beautiful

Struggling greatly with stress and positivity. As a result my neck and shoulders were killing me. I feel totally open and ready to change my attitude! Following my breath and my vision. Many thanks!

I loved this practice. MC has such a great attitude. Not to serious and not so peppy that its annoying. There are a LOT of arm twist in this one, so it isn't a video I would do every week. But I like how it is a video that is totally doable for a beginner, but mixes things up enough to be fun for someone who has been doing yoga for a while. Also, thank you for making longer videos MC!

Absolutely love this class! Feel relaxed and liberated afterwards. I wonder why i cannot download this to purple player for offline streaming?

Really appreciated the creative use of eagle arms and using them in multiple sets throughout the practice. Great practice and just what I needed today!

Love the idea behind this practice and one of my favorite teachers, but this really tweaked my shoulders after a bit. Maybe some modifications could be offered?

Experienced some fun new motions/transitions that definitely focused me. Your verbal guidance is excellent. Feel very relaxed and centered after this practice. thank you!

maryclaresweet, posted on October 18, 2015

great to hear christiana! the benefits of yoga practice are innumerable, but in my opinion the relaxation and centering is one of the greatest!!
