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 🙂
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.
Very focusing,and helped clear my head, literally and figuratively! I can breathe!!!!!
Added this class to my fav file! 💎
Wow!! This was a pleasure to do this morning. I am comimg off of a 2 week hiatus so this was a great way to get back into daily practice. I plan on doing this one a few times this week to really perfect some of those balances. 💎❤️
This was fantastic! It cleared my mind and for most of the time I was able to focus on ny
my mind. I love Breath of Joy and the balsncing poses. My Eagle Pose waa very wobbly today but I was able to move from Sigar Cane into Dancer‘s Pose on the right side😁 This class went straight to my current Top 10 playlist. Thank you Kassandra🤗❤️
O that’s wonderful! So glad to hear
So good! I dont practice balance poses near enough so I really needed this and loved the challenge for myself!
Thank you- I loved this class! Challenging, fun, and inspirational.
Yessssss! 💎 More like this! It was AMAZING. And… HAPPY BIRTHDAY (and Thanksgiving!). 🍂🎉
I loVvvve love love this class ❤️❤️❤️ Thank you!
Thoroughly enjoyed this class, thank you!
Great class after stressful workday, to remind me to focus on what’s important in my life
I loved that practice. Challenging in a good way and now I am set for the rest of the day. Thank you Kassandra 🙂
Really great flow as usual but my balance was really off today so I struggled quite a bit… 😁 I have to try it on some other day again, see if I can do better..
Fabulous! I will come back to this regularly and hopefully improve my balance and shoulder stand 🙂
Nice one. Some serious balance poses and tough transitions for me but a great practice with a slower pace
Wonderful practice. Added to favorites. Even better out on my pergola in the sunshine and bird song. Mental clarity restored. Thank you Kassandra 💜🙏.
Sounds beautiful 🐦
Balancing poses are always a great challenge – and really help to focus. Great class for a beginning of the week (I am in Canada as well and it only starts today). My word today is clarity. Thank you so much 😉
This is my first full practice since Hurricane Ian visited. So comforting and helpful. 🙏🏻❤️
I hope you were safe and didnt have too much damage!
Perfect for focus, calm and clarity- thank you! I’ll need to practice this one!
Thank you for this! I really needed some focus today. I will definitely come back to this one.
Thank you 🙂
I truly feel the changes in my body. Thank you for having us pay attention.
This was a fantastic one! I started with a headache and all this air in and thos focusing all cleared it out! Thank you, Kassandra!
Yay!!! Hope you had a great day after
Loved it! My balance has been off lately so those poses were very challenging, but I appreciated the focus that cleared my usual chatter.
Glad you pushed through!
It was definitely difficult, but it did help me really have to focus on my body.
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!!
It’s great to challenge ourselves every now and again and having something to return to to notice improvements too
* did feel my mind …. hahaha! My fingers aren’t cooperating with my mind though
Thank you for this and all the other classes, you’re the best teacher ❤
Oh thank you!
I like this class and I would love to have pretty much the same but with less tips. naw that we already know the sequence
Check out the camera work!! Thanks for the new class 😊
#goodmorning thank you so much for this class Kassandra. I have had a difficult 2 weeks and have really been stuck in my head and lost. This was an incredible class to help reset my mindset and to move forward with my current situation. Just what was needed. Namaste 🙏
I really loved this class ! Challenging but in a good way, and very effective 🙂 Merci Kassandra !
I did this class for the second time. I love it even more🤗❤️!
I liked this class. Will practice it again. Thank you.
I liked this class. Will practice it again. Thank you.
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! 😉
Kassandra, you are an endlessly creative goddess! I really felt the energy buzzing and moving throughout my system during this class. Thank you for your commitment to the practice and for sharing it so freely 💜
I loved this challenging flow. It did help me focus. Also loved seeing Luna join at the start! 💖 Thank you!
What an awesome practice! Love, love, loved it!!
Thanks Kassandra, love these types of themed classes! 🙌🙏🧡
Yay! Thank you
That was really challenging, both physically and mentally. I really enjoyed it!
I love when a comment starts with challenging and ends with enjoyed it!
Was challenging but really enjoyed it ,really cleared my tired brain fog.
Great practice! Really helped me focus after a tough start to my week. Thank you!
This is quickly becoming my most favorite practice ever! LOVE IT!!! 💕🧘🏼♀️
That’s wonderful to hear!
Great class! I did feel the difference at the end; headed and focused. Ready to take up challenges. Added to fav 🙂
Thank You so much for helping me take my mind of my worries. This class realy made a difference ❤️
Loved it x
One of the best flows! I loooooooved it!
Added to my favourites. I couldnt manage the sugarcane to dancer change but I’ll keep on practicing. Thanks, Kassandra.
It’s tricky and definitely a balance test
I love this class! It is one of my Top 10 at the moments. And it really works to clear my mind🤗⭐️
This one is lovely and just what i needed today 🙏🙏 Thank you K 💜💜🌈🌈
So glad you liked it!
Great class for a foggy afternoon 🙂
When the mental and the physical metaphorically meet!
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 🙂
Amazing! It’s definitely not an easy transition but a great one to work towards
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.
I loved this practice. Couldn’t the transition to dancers pose….yet. Feel calm and clear and focused.
I love that you added yet!!
I am focused for the day 💜
Wonderful practice! Challenging transitions couldnt quite get there but kept trying 🙂 will be coning back to this one and looking forward to see my progress over time. Loved it 💛
It’s great to have a practice that you can turn back to to check in on progress!
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! ❤️
Haha! I think a lot of us did when we were naturally so bendy
That was great for focus! Really challenging.
So glad you thought so! It’s great to challenge oneself and a testament to strength when you press on
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.
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.
Wow! What a beautiful goal
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!
I love that!
Loved this one! Balancing is so challenging but fun to try and improve. Thanks again!
It’s great to challenge ourselves every now and then
Very good and very challenging..
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 🙏
So glad the response this one has received
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!
Challenging and looking forward to the day i hit sugarcane!
Something to work towards
I just love this flow. Still working on the challenging transitions but so enjoying it. Thanks so much for this, Kassandra 🙂
OMG sooooooo good!!!!❤️❤️❤️
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.
Ahh yes! Sometimes knowing what’s coming is a big help
This was great! I’ll do it again soon. Thank you!
It’s a great one to call back to
More of the same please Kassandra! 🙏
Love the balancing poses! Thank you for this series
Great practice 😍
One of my absolute favourites! Always doing so good and my balancing poses are getting better, yay 🙂 Thanks so much, Kassandra.
Really challenging, although I quite enjoyed it, must do more often. I confess I used a wall. Many thanks. Namaste
Nothing wrong with that at all
Such a great morning-practise, thank you Kassandra🙏
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 🙂
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.
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 🙂
Amazing! That one definitely gets most people
This one i come back to about once a month. Great class.
Oh yay! So glad this has become a favourite
