Focus: Full Body Yoga, Yoga Without Props


Hi everyone, thanks for joining me today! I’m excited to guide you through this 30 minute intermediate vinyasa yoga class that I’m calling DIAMOND MIND. This is all about sharpening your senses, clearing away brain fog and getting you to focus. If you have a hard time concentrating, I think you’ll find this class very beneficial.

We’ll be doing this through some balancing poses, asymmetrical poses and breathwork (pranayama). There are some challenging poses and transitions in this class so remember to keep breathing, do your best and don’t take yourself too seriously! My dog Luna joins me for some of it πŸ™‚

This is an intermediate yoga class and I’m not using any props. I really hope you enjoy this class and find it beneficial if you’re feeling slugging, unmotivated or foggy.

    • Kassandra

      Glad you pushed through!

  23. Shandie Knorr

    It was definitely difficult, but it did help me really have to focus on my body.

  24. Diane Wetzel

    Thank you, Kassandra! This was very energizing and re-centering for me. I dod feely momd sharpen as I did the practice and I felt the balancing poses – especially sugarcane to dancer- were challenging but ao helpful for focusing inward. Great practice!!

    • Kassandra

      It’s great to challenge ourselves every now and again and having something to return to to notice improvements too

  34. ken miner

    This one was quite a challenge, especially when the neighbor ran his gas powered leaf blower along the fence for the last 10 minutes until the end of savasana. Really challenging the mental focus! πŸ˜‰

      When the mental and the physical metaphorically meet!

  50. Sally-Ann Soulsby

    Wonderful πŸ’—

  51. Elke Schwalm

    So good, I am really feeling more clear and focused. The transition from Sugar cane to Dancer’s is a great challenge, I was falling out – but keeping it up and hopefully getting better next time. Soon, Thank you so much for this great class πŸ™‚

    • Kassandra

      Amazing! It’s definitely not an easy transition but a great one to work towards

  52. Elizabeth Sonstegaard

    Thank you for this practice! I woke up antsy and foggy but after doing this session I’m ready to start my day with a whole new outlook.

    • Kassandra

      Yay! Perfect

  53. Butterfly48

    I loved this practice. Couldn’t the transition to dancers pose….yet. Feel calm and clear and focused.

    • Kassandra

      I love that you added yet!!

  54. Shirley Hoy

    I am focused for the day πŸ’œ

  55. Patricia Vigil

    Wonderful practice! Challenging transitions couldnt quite get there but kept trying πŸ™‚ will be coning back to this one and looking forward to see my progress over time. Loved it πŸ’›

    • Kassandra

      It’s great to have a practice that you can turn back to to check in on progress!

  56. Michelle

    When I was little I used to go into the plow pose just for fun-knew nothing about yoga. This had some challenges but really enjoyed this practice. Thank you! ❀️

    • Kassandra

      Haha! I think a lot of us did when we were naturally so bendy

  57. Kim Drury

    That was great for focus! Really challenging.

    • Kassandra

      So glad you thought so! It’s great to challenge oneself and a testament to strength when you press on

  58. Maureen Moynihan

    I just turned 80 and have been doing yoga for 25 years, still intermediate. I loved this practice, cant manage the transition from sugar cane to dancer, but hopefully one day.

    • Karen Lucia

      You are my role model. One of the reasons I feel so committed to yoga is so that when I turn 80, only 19 years away, I maintain some flexibility and balance.

    • Kassandra

      Wow! What a beautiful goal

  59. Brianna

    Instantly fell out of the thread the needle pose, it gave me a chance to laugh and not be so serious during this flow. Loved it!

    • Kassandra

      I love that!

  60. Lisa McMullen

    Loved this one! Balancing is so challenging but fun to try and improve. Thanks again!

    • Kassandra

      It’s great to challenge ourselves every now and then

  61. Ariela Golani

    Very good and very challenging..

    • Kassandra


  62. KNM0rgan

    I regularly revisit this session as it refocuses the mind. Particularly when we need to find space, clarity and freedom of thought. Hope to see more of this πŸ™

    • Kassandra

      So glad the response this one has received

  63. Brenda Obusek

    Very nice practice gor gocusing in balance, i lined the use of the feet. But sugarcane to dancer? Whew! Didnt make it today, but something to adpire to! Thank you Kassandra!

  64. Stephanie Wallace

    Challenging and looking forward to the day i hit sugarcane!

    • Kassandra

      Something to work towards

  65. Elke Schwalm

    I just love this flow. Still working on the challenging transitions but so enjoying it. Thanks so much for this, Kassandra πŸ™‚

  66. Koleva

    OMG sooooooo good!!!!❀️❀️❀️

  67. Karen Lucia

    This was a great challenge. I definitely feel sharper after it. It was easier for me to do the left side of the balancing poses since I could anticipate the transitions. I can’t wait to repeat and look for improvement.

    • Kassandra

      Ahh yes! Sometimes knowing what’s coming is a big help

  68. Heidie Grigg

    This was great! I’ll do it again soon. Thank you!

  72. Judith Bellamy

    Really challenging, although I quite enjoyed it, must do more often. I confess I used a wall. Many thanks. Namaste

    • Kassandra

      Nothing wrong with that at all

  73. Kita Markewitz

    Such a great morning-practise, thank you KassandraπŸ™

  74. Annalisa

    Definitely one of my favorite practice! I was feeling quite sluggish before doing it, but now I feel amazing. Even though I lost my balance a couple of times I didn’t judge myself (which sometimes happens automatically) and enjoyed those parts as well. Thanks, Kassandra, for this beautiful practice πŸ™‚

  75. Martina

    I love the simlicity in the difficulty. My mind definitely woke up which is what i needed. Amazing class. It shows how much you understand Namaste.

    • Kassandra


  76. Elke Schwalm

    Always so good – and I was even able to do the hard transition from Sugar Cane to Dancer, at least sort of. I love this practise, a great challenge and really making you focus. Thanks so much, Kassandra πŸ™‚

    • Kassandra

      Amazing! That one definitely gets most people

  77. Nicole Lasas
