Good morning everyone! I’m so thankful to have you join me on the mat today. I’m going to take you through this 30 minute intermediate morning yoga practice for flexibility and energy. This is a morning yoga sequence to tap into the mind-body connection and set the tone for the day ahead. I want you to really go with the flow and trust yourself throughout this class! Be aware of your internal dialogue as you move through these poses.
We’ll have a nice mix of flexibility yoga poses, strengthening yoga poses and balancing poses for a well rounded full body yoga class. I’m not using any props for this morning yoga class but you can certainly have some blocks close by if needed.
Only wonderful 💖🙏
Challenging, yet amazing. I’m feeling very energized and accomplished. I’m ready to start my day with intention.
LOVED THIS ONE!! Thank you!
I love it, my new Monday Morning Favourite! Strong is the word for the week on this grey, snowy winter day. Thank you so much, Kassandra 🙂
Definitely a challenge for Monday morning. I am always surprised I can do the poses if I just try. Love that new tiger variation!
Love it! Yay!
So goooood❣️ 💪🏼
Please stay in your flow of these nice lvl 2 classes! So nice ❤️
Challenging! I would love more if these once in awhile. Keeps me in check.🙏
It’s getting great reception so will keep these playful classes going
I love this one! Just the right amount of challenge for me. I also like that there’s no background music. This one’s going in my favorites for sure.
Beautiful! So glad
Just what I needed today! I must say I do miss your classes with the music! But still love them!
Can’t please everyone all the time 🤣
But also feel free to play gentle music of your own choose alongside your practice
I’m adding this one to my favorites list- really a great class. Thanks Kassandra
Fantastic flow and loved the tiger variation, very muggy here, so got a good sweat up 🙏
I wish it was muggy here 🤣
I loved this flow! It was challenging but also slow enough to be calming, creating focus. The one legged squat to biat was beyond my ability, having advanced arthritis is my knees but i dont let these challenging transitions bother me.
Yes! Take it easy and listen to your body when you need to
This practice kicked my butt, Kassandra! 😂 One-legged pistol squat into boat? Even gorudasana was unstable today. Even the “cool down” poses like cat pulling its own tail was hard! 😳 Thank you for challenging me/us today! I’m definitely favoriting this to do another time. It was for sure a mindful “Power Yoga” class! Thank you, as well, for that crouching tiger sequence! Loved it. Big hugs. Your wave of energy and new classes this January have been inspiring! 💗 My intention today is “peaceful curiosity.” NAMASTE!
Thank you so much! So glad you enjoyed it
I have been lazy yogi for years to afraid to step outside my comfort zone, but over the last month I have been engaging in intermediate classes and enjoying them, today’s class was difficult but I made it to the end,and only fell out of eagle once 🙂
This was definitely a challenging morning yoga!! A wonderful and powerful way to start the morning. Would love to see more of these classes! Thanks for this class!
Huge bike ride yesterday made this a big challenge. It always helps me recover. Challenging would be the apt description. At least for me
Hot dang! I did not expect all that, but I’m proud and empowered by what I was able to accomplish! Couldn’t fully express that new tiger pose or sit down or transition to boat on one let, but that’s ok! I’m good with where I’m at and it felt so great to be unexpectedly challenged. Love this!
Love it! Definitely challenging but so fun amd empowering too! More like this please! It may take me a long time (if ever) to do a one leg squat into boat but that makes
It’s such a strong mobility challenge
…a great long-term goal
Great for me this morning, just recuperating from jetlag. Been doing lots of 10 to 15 min practices and this one was eeally a stretch for me. Go with the flow is going to be my intention for today! Thank you Kassandra!
Hope you’re getting over the hill of it now
A great morning practice! I love your intermediate classes their challenges lift my spirit and my body. Thank you!
This was great and indeed very challenging. Im doing a combination of beginner and intermediate classes right now and i was able to do all of the poses today except for the one legged squat. Do you have any beginner classes that teach the technique for this or build the strength and flexibility for it? Thank you.
That one legged squat is definitely challenging!
Great challenging class to bring out the warrior in me. I will never be able to do that pistol squat. I cant even transition from a regular squat ti boat pose.
Yes! 30 minute intermediate morning class! Ive been practicing with you sonce the pandemic so I need to keep chalkenging myself. Keep these classes coning! Namaste🧘🏼♀️
*since, challenging, coming… lol
✅ great flow🤩
Its great, i would love an hour long morning class
Next week is a 1 hour class
A new fav! 😍
My word today : RESILIANCE
Loved this one on a cold winter morning. All warmed up and ready for the day. Thank you, K!
WOW!!!! This is going onto my list of favorites! Love the challenges and stretches at the same time, with some new poses thrown in! Thank you for the morning challenge!
Challenging class, I was definitely getting my heart rate up. 🙂
this was my first practice after being sick for 10 days. wow it was great I feel like vitalized streched and refreshed. Thanks you Kassandra ❤️
hope you are feeling so much better
Loved this! Nice mix of strength and flow. Definitely coming back to this one again.
Challenging yes., but i made it to the end…. All be it not very elegantly 😂
Well done! Noone is judging what it looks like, yoga is simply in the doing and the pushing through and showing up
Thankyou, loved it!💜Couldn’t do the transition from one leg to boat pose, but will try to modify it next time, maybe with bent knee instead of straightened for better balance.
That is a very tough transition
Wonderful mix – loved it! Namaste ❤️
Yay! So glad
Lobed this class thank you for the challenging poses
Enjoyed this class, could feel the strength and flexibility throughout. Nice cool down to end too. 👍👍
absolutely loved this class! Thank you Kassandra.
That was super challenging. I loved crouching tiger though I did not get it on the first side 😄 second side felt amazing though. The one legged squat is not happening for me at this point in time haha. Very creative flow! I’m curious to revisit it in the future and see what might have changed.
Sometimes coming at the pose again knowing where it’s going makes all the difference
This was fun! My phrase for the day is I can. I can do this. I can modify. I can rest. I can push myself.
Oh I love that
Take things as they go; a variation of the theme of this class to go with the flow
I love that
Love this- challenging for me but works what i need worked. 🥰
I chose this for Monday morning again. Really powerful! Thanks so much for this great class 🙂
So glad you’ve already come back to it
I had a really tough time with this one emotionally. Trying to figure out why. Kind of been in a funk
Do you journal? It can be really powerful to free flow journal after the practice when it’s stirring up emotion
Definitely challenging, i wanted to stop but i made it through. Gratitude
I loved this flow! Went quick but i felt it🥰
Release tension ☺️ great flow! That crouching tiger is my new fav move 🐅
Isn’t it fun?
Such a great & flowy morning practice! I love these 30 min morning ones most👌 please more of these!
Favorite class so far! This was a wonderful energizing flow, for just the right amount of time for morning. Love it.
Ohh thank you
I absolutely loved this practice! Mentally, physically nourishing. Great flows!
Beautiful class! I feel amazing
Long covid issues. I am weak but got most of it with weightless transitioning
Take it easy whenever you can. Listen to your body
Loved with one thank you and the theme of letting go and going with th flow thank you! Loved the side planl transition – tough but great!
Challenging but great flows!
Doing this in fiji was very sweaty… my word to sink into today is “power”
Such different poses from you. Loved the new discoveries
Glad you enjoyed
One of my favoites. Takes some focus!!
Loved it. On a short worktrip and what a great start to the day. Thanks
My second time doing this one, loving it even more this time. My intention for today is steadfast, I know how that does bring me further along in my practice and as I am in the folds of really working to help someone I love navigate some challenges, I feel as if being steadfast and true to her is my focus. Thank you for this sequence today
Glad it was there for you
Definitely challenging for me but also empowering. Loved it. Thank you 🙏
It’s nice to challenge ourselves every now and then
Good morning yogi family. Challenge yoga session, but now its added to my favorites. Enjoyed it
Got me out of my comfort zone which is what I need from time to time. Made it througj everything but the one legged squat to boat. Not bad for a senior citizen😀
It was really energezing
It was really energizing! Thank you! 🙏🏻 My affirmation for the day is: I am strong.
