A couple poses that were done on the left side were not repeated on the right. It's personally a pet peeve when instructors do this, it makes me feel unbalanced...

Came right to this after one of those days

This was the first time I had done one of Mara's classes and I really enjoyed it. Mara's instructions were clear and her message was great. I will certainly try more of her classes. Thank you Mara for a quick but enjoyable class. Namaste.

Bhagavad Ghita says that we need to identify all the negative aspects of our lives, quiet the mind, he/she who is temperate in his habits of eating, sleeping, working, and recreation, can mitigate all material pains by practicing the yoga system. thank you for your class.

Thank you! This is what I needed... I don't have much time with 4 month old baby, and this sequence was just perfect.

Really nice, quick practice. I really enjoyed it except for the volume constantly going in and out.

Lovely flow. Loved the extended eagle arms and twists. Feeling the prana across my chest which does not usually happen. Thank you for the energy boost.

This really does pack in a lot in 16 minutes! Feels like a much longer practice. Perfect for hurried mornings. Thanks Mara.

Thank you, this was a release as well as a connection, the flow was perfect, I did not feel rushed or limited, great for morning where time can be short or any time yoga inspiration is needed to boost the energy of the day!

cmcintosh, posted on October 23, 2012

What an inspiring way to start the day - thankyou for your inspiration Mara.

Sarah8_2, posted on October 14, 2012

Excellent practice for those days when your time is crunched! Thank you!!! The sweet sounds of the dog and "life" in the background made me smile; The movement of life was very fitting with the movement and "dance" that you incorporated with the poses! Will enjoy doing this one again and again!!! Namaste!

BlissFULLHeart, posted on October 12, 2012

What a wonderful and energizing flow! Perfect for my schedule today :) Thank you.

Excellent before heading out to the airport for a 7am flight:) Needed this.

courtrhapsody, posted on October 5, 2012

I enjoyed seeing a video where the instructor is speaking without a voice over. As a teacher, that is more like what I actually do!

AmandaRuffini, posted on October 5, 2012

Very efficient morning practice, I enjoyed the eagle arms with the folding and unfolding. Namaste
