I’m back with another highly requested minimal cues yoga practice! If you’re new to this, it just means I won’t be talking much throughout the class. I’ll simply name the yoga pose and that’s pretty much it! Of course this means this is best suited for more experienced students or even yoga teachers.

This 35 minute vinyasa yoga practice will focus primarily on your upper body through heart openers and backbends. You will need a block for this class. Rest assured I’ll still make sure to add lots of poses for your hips and hamstrings. If you have tightness, tension or stiffness in your back, shoulders and chest, this class will be very beneficial for you.
