Thanks Clare great class. And loved your variations and options to go deeper for the more advanced. Which was not for me but gives me something to work towards.

I absolutely loved this flow and the amount of time was perfect for my work-from-home "coffee break" on my deck this morning. Beautiful gift for my body as I have a desk job and love the gift to my hips and back.

Firstly I want to say I loved this practice, however as someone who suffers with chronic lower back pain...I had to spend a short while in passive lower back release first before attempting this practice but so glad I did as I left feeling energised and vibrant! Thank you Clara for yet another excellent flow <3

Incorporates two of my favorite poses - tree and rockstar - and links them all together with a strong flow. Gorgeous way to boost my energy this morning. Thank you, Clara!

This practice was a bit strong for me early in the morning but I gave in to the moment and now I feel fiery, it's better than a cup of coffee! Thanks Clara for a beautiful practice, Namaste :D

and mid day, too.

I love this class. Please add more Clara Roberts Oss videos - that are under 35 minutes like this one. Also, the hang drum music is perfect and is so lovely.

Loved it. Great for early PM as well.

alisonb, posted on June 23, 2015

dear clara, i really like your approach in many of the videos.
this one is great, only the words and the asana are not aligned about midway through, anyway to do that would be great, i love this group of vinyasa.

It has been a while since I last watched this video and I remember now why I used to do it so often. Such a clear, beautiful flow. Although it is short Clara's voice and timing stops it from feeling rushed so that I can follow my breath. This class opens my spine in so many directions, and still has time for some really nice hip openers leaving my body deliciously awake and ready for the day. Thank you!

Hi Clara... wanted you to know that I have become your very grateful and happy yogi student over the years... you are a blessing in my life. I was a professional modern dancer for 20 years and also a yoga teacher and I have learned and continue to learn so much from you... your sequencing is gorgeous unique and anatomically pleasing! Your verbal instruction is clear and sweet.... and your presence is both playful and professional.
So my deepest thanks... your dharma sister in California.... Tanya

Soooo good!

kdbarton28, posted on May 7, 2015

I like these poses and this flow, but the pace was just a little too fast for my liking. I would have liked to be able to hold each pose for just a few more seconds to really enjoy the stretch.

Beautiful, creative, expressive ... love it!

Enjoyed tremendously , thank you Clara :)

I enjoyed this morning class and found it sufficiently challenging yet gentle for groggy muscles. Thanks Clara!

Kelissi, posted on December 23, 2014

Love Clara's classes, and this one is no exception1 It leaves me feeling open and engaged. In the winter, I do have a small space heater in the room where I practice, which I turn on low, and by about midpoint I'm sweating. I think it helps with loosening the just-woke-up muscles. As a homeschooling Mama, I find Clara's classes are just the right balance of opening my spirit and mind for my day, and I love spending the time concentrating on my intention - today's: "May I actively appreciate myself and my child." Clara is absolutely my favorite teacher on the site!

danibomb, posted on February 17, 2015

I'm not a mother yet, hopefully one day in the future! I just wanted to say that your intention is so beautiful and I hope to actively appreciate my child one day. Namaste!

It is cool in my house in the morning, my muscles are stiff and I'm not yet awake. I like a practice that eases into things so that I can warm up a bit. It doesn't feel yogic to me; it felt jarring.

KeithA@GTV, posted on November 24, 2014

@elizabeth.vanrij - Sorry you found this too quick. It is a powerful practice indeed. A little heat definitely helps get things moving. Try some of our Hatha classes that move somewhat slower. Gina Caputo and Cameron Shayne are some of my favorite teachers that build the flow with a little more ease.

A little too fast-paced for my morning...

Love this practise in the morning, a good work out, that sets my mind to calm for the rest of the day. Thank you so much,

sensualcelery, posted on September 9, 2014

This is one of my all time favorite classes. I come back to it whenever I need a good stretch, a bit of a workout, and Clara's soothing voice. By the time I'm in corpse pose, my brain is exactly where I want it to be for the rest of the day. Thank you Clara!

MrsWFG, posted on July 21, 2014

Thank you for this flow, I love it...

danibomb, posted on June 5, 2014

I've practiced this flow more times than I can count, and today it felt so natural and meditative. I love ending with supta baddha konasana, which felt more accessible and relaxing today than ever.

niccarr, posted on May 13, 2014

I come back to this class all the time, love it. Thank you. x
