I loved the atypical sequencing. It was a great way to open the hips. Also, as a yoga teacher and practitioner I like to have lots of variety, as opposed to always Surya A, followed by Surya B, followed by more typical Western vinyasa stuff. The variety she used adds to the funasana.

I loved the instruction. Some points I'd never heard have really taken some of my poses to another level and allowed me to go deeper. Thanks, great job!

I didn't finish this class. I found the sequencing strange and disjointed and the cues were also hard to follow.
