Hi everyone, thanks for joining me. I decided to bring my blocks out today and use them to help us get a bit creative on the mat and explore traditional poses in a different way. This is a fun dynamic yoga class suitable for intermediate students who want to switch things up a bit and make use of their yoga props.

Grab two blocks and meet me on the mat with an open heart and open mind! This class will help you gain strength physically and mentally while also giving you lots of great stretching breaks.

Lately I’ve been focusing a lot on the concept of choosing curiosity over judgement and expectation. When things get tough or when you step out of your comfort zone, can you be curious about the experience rather than judgmental about it? Regardless of the end result! Now THAT’S a spiritual practice! Enjoy xx


  1. Heidi

    Thank you @Kassandra for this great practice which really makes a difference 😀

    • Kassandra

      Yay! Glad you loved it

  2. Elke Schwalm

    Wow, I really live this, ai like doing things differently. What a great start into the new week. Thanks so much, Kassandra 🙏

    • Elke Schwalm


    • Kassandra

      It’s so nice to mix up your practice

  3. Noortje

    What a great practice! One to come back to regularly. I love using my blocks.

    • Kassandra

      So glad!

  4. Tania Roberts

    Liked this a lot!!! Thank you Kassandra!

    • Kassandra

      Yay! Thank you

  5. Baerbel

    Love it! Side plank on a block in tree pose was a challenging but fun one. I don‘t think I will ever be able to lift my legs (the pose after reversed table). I was happy that I could hold my butt lifted 😁 Thank you Kassandra ❤️🤗

    • Kassandra

      That’s excellent! It’s hard to get something for everyone in a class so it’s great to have poses that can be built on depending where you are at in your practice.

  6. Stacy Stapleton

    This was a fun change. Enjoyed using blocks in a new way. It cleared my head of clutter too!

    • Kassandra

      Just what I had hoped!

  7. Melinda Anderson de Regil

    Great class. Nice to do something outside of thr box. Couldnt do all of the poses but adapted them to what I could do. Only challenge I found is that I have a cork mat so the blocks started sliding in downward dog so I had to move them to the carpet.

    • Kassandra

      Are your blocks foam? I would say try to get cork blocks too if that’s an option for you and you want to do more practices like that but yes taking them just off the front of the mat works too

  8. Patricia Vigil

    Beautiful amd challenging practice. Enjoyed a different take with the bkocks ❤️

    • Kassandra

      So glad!

  9. Nicole Lasas

    It was a whoa and giggle class. Love the curiosity approach over judgment. Think that’s why i was smiling while wobbling.

    • Kassandra

      I love that!!! We need some levity sometimes in the practice

  10. Teri Gray

    🙏. Love mixing things up a bit. It was challenging but we need that.

    • Kassandra


  11. Kim Drury

    This was a very relaxing class.

    • Kassandra

      Oh really? Good for you!

  12. Courtney Stahl

    Love love this flow to get me out of a rut and feel more energetic, isnpired, and creative. Thank you so so much for your continued efforts and supportro help us stretch our comfort zones!

    • Kassandra

      Yay! Glad it could do that for you

  13. RunningGioGio

    Wow! This was an interesting practice. The side plank variety of the tree pose took me by surprise, the second side went better. Definitly will repeat this class.

    • Leslie G

      Same word came to me: interesting 😊 Thank you, Kassandra 🙏🏻🌟💖

    • Kassandra

      Sometimes it’s easier when you know what’s coming

  14. Josie Farrell

    Tough but good.Enjoyed it.

  15. Lisa McMullen

    That was SO FUN!!! (And challenging). Thank you!

  16. Leslie

    Wonderful challenge mentally and physically. Loved it!

  17. AngelaNicholas

    I did this last night and again tonight- I loved it thank you. Found it a bit easier tonight- especially the side planks

    • Kassandra

      I love that! When a repeat helps new transitions and variations click

  18. ewile@optonline.net

    Lovely class. Nice change of pace.

    • Kassandra

      So glad you enjoyed

  19. Ariela Golani

    i liked the creativity this practice brings. Thank you K.

    • Kassandra

      It’s fun to get creative

  20. Shirley Hoy

    I struggled with this a little but will keep practicing. Having dispraxia really did pose a problem with me, pardon the pun, but my determination is stronger so i will keep trying. Im pleased i tried it. Thank you Kassandra 💜

    • Kassandra

      This is certainly one of those keep trying practices. Even if the poses seem normal, the blocks add so much

  21. tanya

    This is a great flow!!! So different!

    • Kassandra


    • Kassandra


  22. Michelle

    I was hesitant on tree pose side on right side but was able to do it on the left side – so it is possible. Once you announced fish pose, I said out loud “oh yes!” I am really finding a love for supported fish pose! Thank you for curiosity over judgement. ❤️❤️❤️

    • Kassandra

      There is something about supported fish pose. So many love and hates with it, but it’s wonderful when you find the surrender in it

  23. Nicole Collins

    I always live a good flow with blocks, so this class excited before I even started. Love the challenges of the class too. Tree pose is one of my favorites, so combining it with side plank was awesome…never thought of that combo. Great class, thanks!

    • Kassandra

      Me too! I love blocks, they’re so adaptable

  24. Veronica Salsberg

    This was a fun practice, thanks for mixing it up! Im glad i tried someing different!

    • Kassandra

      I’m so glad the mix up is being well received.

  25. Diane Wetzel

    Very creative flow, Kassandra! And I found the side planks with tree pose challenging, also doing the twists with the blocks in chair pose. Surprising how different the poses feel with blocks. Definitely will do this one again!

    • Kassandra

      Thank you! I love that this one is getting such great reception

  26. Melissa

    This practice is exactly what I need. It is fun and different. Loved it.

    • Kassandra

      Perfect! It’ll be here for you to return to

  27. Martina

    This was a wonderful practice! I love using blocks in my practice.

    • Kassandra

      They truly are so wonderful for all levels

  28. Andrea

    Thank you Kassandra for this wonderful praxis. I love these sequences with blocks♡♡♡♡

  29. kuestenfuchs

    This was incredible! So engaging and challenging, I absolutely loved it. Wonderful sequencing as well!

    • Kassandra

      Thanks so much

  30. Christina Becker

    This was great! I love how the blocks bing so much more stability into the triangle pose but also so much more challenge into the chair pose or the boat pose. I would really love to see more of these classes <3

    • Kassandra

      They have so many purposes!!

  31. Sarah Garnett

    Ooof that was challenging but I loved the different “feels” that the blocks brought. I think I went into shock when I could actually get into Vrksasana in a sidey!

    • Kassandra


  32. Gurjit Atwal

    Loved this practise! Thanks for changing things up with a little curiosity 🙏🏽

    • Kassandra

      Perfect! Glad you enjoyed

  33. Christian Dahms

    Great Flow! Some challenges with intermittent breaks.

    • Kassandra

      We all need a breather every now and then

  34. Erin Greaves

    Wow, this was great! I had just taight use of blocks in down dog last week so it was so great to see it here and get a chance to play with it in my own body again. 🙏🏻🧘🏼‍♀️

  35. PaulaJane

    When you saud supported fish pose i said ‘oh yes’ i love love love that pose. A challenging class, thank you.

    • Kassandra

      Yay! Me too

  36. Karen Vaurs

    I really enjoyed this uncommon practice which helped me rediscover new sensations in basic poses. Thanks a lot Kassandra for this proposition of experimenting on the mat!

    • Kassandra

      yay! So glad you liked it

  37. Heather Belanger

    Kassandra, this is awesome! I had so much fun doing this class. I think it’s my favourite one yet. Five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ lol

  38. Maristella

    This class really helped me waking me up during the poses: curiosity, awareness and wholeness increased… TY so much! 💗

    • Kassandra

      So lovely

  39. Patrick Westcott

    Challenging! I will come back to this class several times. Thank you!

    • Kassandra


  40. Josie Farrell

    Very challenging , not able for side planks. Enjoyed it tho.

  41. angela

    Challenging those side tree planks..will come back to this class was great.

    • Kassandra

      That’s a fun one

  42. Sally-Ann Soulsby

    Love being pushed a bit more. More like this please ❤️🙏

  43. Andrea Puetz

    Loved this class! Classes with props are so nice.

  44. Melissa Hayes

    This was a fun, challenging, and out of the ordinary class! Thanks for the nudge.

    • Kassandra

      It’s been fun mixing it up

  45. Elke Schwalm

    I love the variations with blocks! Favourite for sure 🙂 Thank you , Kassandra

    • Kassandra

      Thank you

  46. Kim Sherman

    Thank you Kassandra, although I found this very challenging, I enjoyed it! My biggest issue was with my blocks. I have very small hands and grabbing the blocks was hard. Also, they seemed very slippery – do you have any recommendations on blocks?

    • Kassandra

      Do you have cork or foam? They also come in smaller widths, or you can turn them up to the thinner side.

    • Kim Sherman

      They are cork, but inexpensive ones and about 5.5 by 9 better light though 1.5 lbs. Do you have a specific brand of blocks you like?

  47. Patrick Westcott

    Second time through. Feel more fluid.

    • Kassandra

      Yay that’s wonderful

  48. Jacquie Lee

    Thank you for this practice! It had a sense of playful energy that I very much need more of in my life. I struggled to keep my weight out of my wrist in the side plank/tree pose though – any tips?

    • Kassandra

      Try to claw into the fingertips and think about lifting up the middle part of your palm like a cup so you’re focusing throughout. Also push into it and lift the hips, to make sure you’re not slumping

  49. Natallie

    That was a challenge! Thanking you 🙏🏽 love curiosity ove judgement!

    • Kassandra

      yay! So glad you loved it

  50. Shelley Gripich

    Loved it, loved the blocks🧱 A fav for sure🤩

    • Kassandra

      Blocks truly are the best

  51. Lily Chan

    I love the use of the blocks and the balance between core and stretch. This class definitely stoked my curiosity!!!

  52. Minna Virtaneva

    This was such fun! I avoided this class long thinking it might be too much in the morning – nonsense! Ot was just perfect way to start the day with a whlole new mindset and body feeling great 😊

    • Kassandra

      I’m so glad your curiosity got you!

  53. Fortune.Magsadia

    Perfect. Just what I needed physically and mentally 😌 thank you!

  54. Roan Willmore

    That was great.. Thank you 👍

  55. Anastasia Paveloff

    Such a fun, innovative flow! This is now ON REPEAT! (My fourth time doing it today, I think?!) Thank you for your extraordinary creativity! Much love, Kassandra. 💞
