I always love your classes. Your instruction is among the best I've encountered, your voice is calming, while the pace of the class is perfect. All this allows us to close our eyes and truly connect and relax into the flow of the practise. This is a gift... many classes are good but just miss out on one or two of these aspects... leaving the participant grappling to see what's happening and how to execute the move leaving little time for dropping in and enjoying the practise. Thank you once again... Namaste.

That was one of the best guided practices I've done. The voice over allowed me to close my eyes for much of the practice and I feel marvelous. Thank you so much!!

Thanks graciegirl. Wonderful to hear how you enjoyed this practice. This is my preferred style for personal practice, so it is a pleasure to share.

I agree with you Gracie, I used to do classes of Kregs a few years back on MyYoga and recently started again, and this class has reminded me what a great teacher he is, peaceful, calm, attentive instruction with options to help you get the best out of it. I feel at peace and calm after that, and its added to my playslist.

Thanks Kreg!

amazing practice. loved everything about it!

mandyvarona, posted on March 25, 2013

Just lovely!

veda, posted on March 12, 2013

Another practice whereby Kreg allows for sufficient hold time, counter-poses, and reminder of breath and modifications should you need them, all in a manner that creates a wonderful awakening and attitude going forward.

energiayoga, posted on February 19, 2013

Very nurturing practice. Perfect for me since my lower back is achy & I have a hurt hip. Thanks!!!!

palerosepetal2, posted on January 30, 2013

Thank you very much for this amazing video. I just started practicing Yoga about two weeks ago and the way you explain the poses is very helpful! I will without a doubt be doing this class again!

kregweiss, posted on January 24, 2013

Hi @tarapresley - Legs Up the Wall pose is a great alternative offering the circulation benefits that come with Shoulder Stand. Namaste, Kreg

tarapresley, posted on January 24, 2013

Any suggestions on a pose to replace the shoulder stnat?

yin4ever, posted on January 14, 2013

excellent. Enjoyed the long slow holds!

hi @hunwa, very happy to hear this practice was able to warm up your day in Brussels. namaste, Kreg

hunwa, posted on December 26, 2012

That was amazing just what I needed on a grey windy day in Brussels really lifted my spirits, thank you so much definately saved to my favourites.

kregweiss, posted on November 13, 2012

hi @katett ... thank you for your kind feedback - this is a great time of year to enjoy slower, lighter practices given the recent time change and onset of cold 'season' ... namaste, Kreg

KateTT, posted on November 10, 2012

What a perfect practice for a very quiet, grey foggy day. I lit a scented candle and enveloped myself in the practice. Great cueing, great poses that I could deepen if I wanted to. Ahhh. Thank you again Kreg.

kregweiss, posted on August 14, 2012

Hi srock32, Thank you for sharing your feedback on this practice. This is a great practice for those developing their foundation or for those feeling that they need to scale back the depth of physicality (hence, taking it a bit easier). Namaste, Kreg

srock32, posted on August 12, 2012

Sweet and joyful, just what I needed today, thank you Kreg, Namaste.

Fantastic way to start the day, I'm feeling strong and positive and ready to go!
Thanks so much.

Lizmcb, posted on March 18, 2012

A lovely experience "taking the day with ease". It loosens a lot of desk-work induced tightness, smoothly and with relaxation. Many thanks.
