I love this class! I keep going back to it and every time I feel better and better! Thank you
Straightforward handstand is not within my reach, so seeing that in the description was intimidating. But the modification of walking up the wall was fantastic! The rest of the class was a good, strong practice as well, that built up beautifully to the handstand part.
Beautiful transitions. Calm, clear instructions. GREAT tonic for the spine- and ALSO the mind during these stressful times. Thank you, Patti!
I love being able to culminate in handstand as the inversion rather than headstand- injured my neck severely several times doing headstands in the 90s in class.... now just don't do them- love this inversion option
What a wonderful, strong class that left my neck and back feeling better and stronger than when I started- was able to do class in a healthy manner even though am dealing with chronic injury and pain.
creates length and strength in the torso and spine. another awesome class with Patti
Amazing, complete and spiritual practice, thank you!
I loved this class and not too challenging. Thank you Patti!

I was surprised at how challenged I was today in this class. My ego was definitely fired up when I felt tired and tight in my body. Thank you for those words near the end of the practice when you reminded us that every time we step on the mat, it is different, and that frustrations will keep us from hearing the true message of the practice. Namaste.
This practice completely unravels and de-congests my spine and leaves me feeling strong and flexible.
Delicious, fluid, buttery practice peppered with moments of subtle heat. Brilliant, Patti. Namaste.
I love these two spinal tonic classes. After recently discovering that my mild case of childhood scoliosis had become an issue, it's great to find a yoga sequence that nurtures and empowers the spine without being restorative. My only complaint is that I could have used more shoulder opening before urdhva dhanurasana. Patti's instruction strikes a nice balance of being clear and concise without overloading you with information.
Sara good job.
