This was so fabulous. I hope that you post more yoga videos like this, and that other teachers are inspired to follow your free, grounded and fun style!

I loved the free spirited feeling and FUN in this class. Very much looking forward to more classes from Hemalayaa!

What a breath of fresh air! Such a different class than most. I loved it! It was very freeing!! Hope Hemalayaa does more like it.

Hemalayaa rocks! I particularly loved this practice. It was challenging and fun, and I feel envigorated and open starting my day! Thank you!

I enjoyed Power Flare with Hemalayaa. The practice caused me to heat up for sure but I love her fun way and the live music. This is one that I will do again for enjoyment but also to improve.

Loved this! Got me going this morning with a smile on my face:)

I don't. Too bad, because I like the workout and the music (rare for me), but the monologue and whoops and moans are annoying. Had to bail.

This was exactly what I was looking for. I needed the energy and the pace was great! Enjoyed the variety of movement! Great enthusiasm! Thank you! Namaste.

Loved this! Just want I needed on a snowy Friday morning in upstate NY--movement, flow, beats, and great energy. Thank you!

This was too chaotic. Between the live musicians, laughing, whoo hoo's - which many people seem to like- it just wasn't for me as I like more peace and structure to my yoga.

I had so much fun! Thank you!

Refreshing and fun! To short!!

Great quick energetic practice to start a busy day.

JanetElaine, posted on January 11, 2014

Great practice esp during the week when short on time and you want oomph! Love it!

najna, posted on November 14, 2013

hahaha, this was quite funny yoga break ;) for me disturbing a little when expressing yours "hhhaaaa" and "RRRRRRRRRR", but others may have like it :D

lj2408, posted on November 2, 2013

What a nice change! Lots of fun:)

kerielow, posted on November 2, 2013

My favorite class so far! You may think you need an hour or more to get a good workout without sacrificing stretching or vice versa, but this class packs it all into one!

yogapazzo, posted on October 23, 2013

Fun fast paced class! Good to do when you're short on time!

Tbrown60, posted on October 13, 2013

This was awesome! :)

esteladuarteayala, posted on September 7, 2013

Loooove your classes! Please do more videos :). Thank you!

heidismom, posted on August 21, 2013

Perfect, just what I needed! I almost wasn't in the mood and didn't think I had the time, but went for it and I'm invigorated and feel great! Can't wait to try another of her classes!

Help guys! I looooove this teacher and I don't get audio in this video or "yogasmic journey" every other video works fine, I just finished a couple of mini practices so I guess its not my device. Help! Looove this teacher's classes :)

joannamarie, posted on July 21, 2013

I wasn't super into the sounds at first but after awhile I started making them too and it lightens up the whole experience. really great quick class!! Thank you!

dlimaye, posted on June 2, 2013

I've been living in an area where going for walks isn't a good option (only busy roads nearby) and I find most aerobic activity hard on my knees. This workout is just what I was looking for- combining some cardiovascular activity with the yoga I know is safe for my joints. Thanks!!

laurenlyn, posted on May 2, 2013

I get a kick out of you! Fun routine and great energy, thank you :)

aknovo01, posted on April 21, 2013

I LOVE this video. I love the energy she brings. She translates it to you in such a way you can't HELP but soak it up and FEEL IT!

vintagedoll01, posted on April 15, 2013

Must admit, I nearly gave up on this a couple of minutes in because of the sounds. But I persevered and ended up really enjoying it, definitely a class I'll be doing again. Thank you Heemaleya!

JuliAnneM, posted on April 4, 2013

Made me sweat! Fun class. I love Heemaleya.

perseph3, posted on March 20, 2013

This practice felt great this morning. I'm ready to face my day, whatever craziness ensues!

Use with Add On

arwen_2, posted on February 27, 2013

That was really fun. I needed the balance of stretching and aerobic this morning. Unexpected result: Upon doing that pigeon pose with the thigh stretch and mudra... I suddenly burst into tears. I don't even know whether happy or sad but I had no idea I had that stored underneath this morning until the stretch pulled it out of me.

kayminair, posted on February 17, 2013

she is absolutely fantastic!

existinsel, posted on February 4, 2013

I see a lot of complaints about this practice being too "aerobic," but thankfully, that was exactly what I was looking for--and the invigorating and well-performed music was a bonus (love the frame drum)! The poses and sequences remind me a lot of budokon, so if you're a fan of that style (and the awesome arms and abs that it bestows), this is the class for you!

That said, this is an "intermediate" class for a reason: the instructions are cursory and the changes are rapid-fire, so if you don't instinctively start squatting when someone yells "chair pose" you may want to watch the video through once before starting it. Also, you should be knowledgeable enough about yoga to know how to prevent injury to yourself in certain poses, as there are no tips on technique here (one of the reasons it can maintain such a fast pace).

I enjoyed the movements and sequences, but the sounds were too distracting.

connieSPN, posted on January 25, 2013


I agree. I tried to like it but the noises ....just could not get into this.

connieSPN, posted on January 25, 2013

Different strokes for different folks, I didn't enjoy this either- but then, I'm a more traditional person.

quixote, posted on January 22, 2013

Before you begin this practice, the very first thing you have to do is to just be open and lighthearted to Hemalayaa's style of teaching. Once you open yourself to something that's a little different, a little quirky, you'll see that this practice is actually a lot of fun. Try making some sounds! Just try it! You will see that sound has very therapeutic properties.

carolinedoesyoga, posted on January 21, 2013

So much fun.. Once again... I'll say it.. I love you Hemalayaa... wish I could grab a hold of some of your wonderful energy.... oh yea.. i just did.. thanks for the fun yoga class love it... more pleeezeee

Exhilarating!!! - to All 'let it go!!' put perception, opinions ,expectations aside and just ENJOY a great lunchtime /anytime pick me up!

sallyrud_2, posted on January 15, 2013

Love this! So liberating. Hemalayaa rocks!

tappin1, posted on January 13, 2013

This class was fun. I suggest you do a few rounds
Of surya namaskar A and B before you begin. Love the sounds
For releasing tension during practice.

marilynbg, posted on January 13, 2013

Lighthearted and energizing. Simply structured but challenging poses at the beginning, with great hip openers (that I'm always needing!) toward the end.

naturalyogini, posted on January 13, 2013

Wow, I can't believe some of the negative comments. Open mind. Open heart! Yes, the instructions were a little muddled. BUT, it's only 20 minutes and you can watch it first to see what's going on. Her classes are a combination of hatha/kundalini yoga and dance. Doesn't get any better than that. Loved the drumming and guitar. I get so bored with the run of the mill flow classes that are regularly uploaded. This was great and different. More please.

Durga57, posted on January 11, 2013

Loved this!! So much fun! Thank you!

vegandebra, posted on January 10, 2013

Great short video. This is a tantric type yoga with movement which is what to expect with Shakti yoga practice. This is not aerobics. It is not the awful fitness style Flow that I was afraid it might be. Opening up the Shakti, feminine energy.
