As usual, your classes are so well cued and feel extremely safe (I also finished your anatomy course, so I felt I was still in it ;-) ) Never tried the chin stand before and I was afraid, to be honest, but getting close to the wall I managed to push both legs (yayyy!!) and had a huge smile on my face (totally unexpected). Immensely grateful for not only pushing us out of the comfort zone and challenging us, but mostly doing it from a compassionate and safe place. Thank you, Mychal!! Namaste!
I love the challenge of not a typical Vinyasa. I am 9 weeks out from total hip replacement and, while I am not supposed to break 90 degrees for another 3 weeks, I find I am healing quickly. I had to modify a bit but I missed this channel so much that I needed to try it today. Thanks as always for your kind encouragement and amazing cues!
A compassionate practice !

Thanks Mychal ! Beautiful flow. Loved those warming up sequences for the shoulder girdle - could really feel warming up those muscles. Important in cold germany :-) couldn´t lift up both legs....ended up practicing pincha mayurasana Namaste !

great sequence towards the peak pose, loved it, even I cannot lift the 2nd leg - this time mitigated into pincha mayurasana. Thanks Mychal!
WOW what a nice practice Mychal, you explain so well and give tips to enter the poses ..I can't leave my second leg upward ... but that's a beginning .. Better on the second size ( left ..) .. Have to come back. Thank you for this nice one ... Namaste
