Nice warm-up class to do before the Apparatus workout or just to find your body after a tiring day. Thanks!

Loved this workout after 2 weeks rest. Found it really centering as I get ready to return to a full schedule of teaching. Thank you!

Great to stretch...especially if you are suffering from an injury and need to free up the body. Easy to understand and instructor goes at a very good pace that is easy to follow

Thanks everyone, for the positive comments! In case you haven't seen it yet, the Reformer Workout/sequel to my Mat class, which I considered a warm up, is no up and running on PA. Here's the link:

Your class is absolutely fabulous for my hips! I am scheduled for a hip replacement this December. ( too much classical dance and running in my early life, I guess) I have put it off for a year and a half and because of traveling commitments this Fall, I had hoped to get to December. But I have been in quite a bit of pain for some months. But after doing your class two days in a row, I am pain free! I am so happy! That class, plus using a stationary bike...I can get to December now.

I am SO delighted to hear this, Maria! I am also an aging former ballerina, and my aim was to make this Mat workout a thorough prep for hopping onto the Reformer, but also that it could be a short, stand-alone, therapeutic and centering workout. I'm glad it served you well, and thanks for taking the time to give me the feedback!
