Just what I needed. Thank you!
This is exactly what I needed. Only request would be for Birgitte to talk a little less when we have legs up the wall. But she is fabulous and I will be coming back to this practice again and again.
Thank you for this, Birgitte. I have long covid and feel like I'm fighting my body to do anything... but this practice helped me just be and restore and to learn to inhabit my body again for a short time without resistance, which I needed but didn't know how to do. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to "regular" yoga again in time, but I'm grateful for finding sanctuary here in the meantime while I slowly heal.
Oh my goodness, what a lovely class. Thank you for talking about yoga in such a radically different way than I had understood before.... I loved the phrase you used about "passively receiving the benefits of the pose"..... kind of blew my mind and was such a healing image for me. Thank you <3
Dear Veronica, That is wonderful to hear. I am so glad to know that you enjoyed and benefitted from this restorative practice. Yoga can truly help us to unwind and restore. Namaste, Birgitte
Can I see session prior to comments being requested please?
Really nice sequence. Focused mostly on lower body.
Hi Whitney, Thank you for your feedback....and yes, mostly on lower body for sure. Namaste, B
I teach meditation at yoga studio. This lesson will help both meditation and the other kind of my lesson. Thank you!
Hi Ruriko, You are so welcome. Namaste, Birgitte
Way too much talking! Hard to relax when there is near-constant narration.
thank you - that was really lovely and just right.
I've been in a lot of pain this week due t travel and overwork. I love the wall modifications for these seemingly simple poses, wow - what a difference. Very great intro before meditation too.
Very nice--thank you
My favorite take-away is the meditation with the back against the wall. I find my mind wanders a lot when I am trying to meditate, and the grounding energy of having the back body against the wall was very helpful in focusing my mind. Namaste.
This class was great. Just what I needed after a busy day.
:) nice for the end of the week
Perfect class for me today. This challenge seems to read my mind.
Perfect class for today. I started out tight from an intense hike yesterday and now feel so much better.
Great restorative practise. Very calming and grounding.
Great class to wind down after a long day or take a break to prep for more day.
Thank you so much for this practice! Im feeling so much better! My favorite pose was the adductor stretch at the wall, effective yet gentle.
I really enjoyed this video, calmed me down and helped me to release some tightness from my body
This was such a wonderful treat for my body and mind. Thank you!!
Birgitte is wonderful. Very wise. This is a most helpful video. Thank you!
This is such a great respite from a busy life! Thanks Birgitte!
