    I like Bakasana (crane/crow) or maybe a variation if Srsasana (head/shoulder stand)

      Yep, from crow to chatturanga, same thing :) Scorpion is an awesome back bend -- I definitely still use the wall in that one! This class will be much milder :)

    Though some of the transitions were a bit advanced, I really enjoyed the flow of the class! It was easy to understand where she wanted us to go and I had a good time.

    My first time! Samantha is awesome and the sweat poured!

    Good as always. We spent more time in each asana so it was a different kind of workout. Both types help me.

    reverse 1/2 moon (parivrtta ardha chandrasana)

      I love half-moon and reverse half moon. Thanks for sharing! I saw you teach anusara, I would love to talk to you about it! I've taken a number of anusara classes and love them :)

    Hi Everyone,

    Excited to see you all next Monday. Question for you -- What is your favorite yoga pose? I want to put together a class that features at least one from everyone :) Do you have a favorite yoga song? Send it to me!

    Hope this week is treating you well!

    -Sam

    • Samantha C.

      Thanks, Kevin! Chanting and pranayamas are great. I was more wondering what your favorite pose is so that I can put together a sequence that includes everyone's favorite. A sort of yoga crowd sourcing :)

      1 · June 15, 2014

    • Kevin Everett F.

      I understood your request about poses, but I do not currently have a favorite.

    A friend of mine, Reza Ganjavi, is visiting in town. He suggested having a dialogue with this yoga class on the subject of “Does Ego Exist?”. Anyone interested is invited to stay after class for the discussion. This is a one time event.

    Hi Samantha, pigeon and double pigeon are my favorites. For music, I like instrumental only since it is not distracting.

    Thank you for asking for feedback, Samantha.
    Half Moon is one of my favorite poses (http://www.yogajournal.com/poses/784) but I think almost everyone needs to use a block in order to be safe and stable. Practicing it up against the wall (with a block, as well) is also a supportive way to start.
    Music-wise, I have a preference for instrumental pieces that aren't distracting. These could be of any style or genre, from classical music, to drum & bass, to more 'traditional' Eastern-influenced yoga/meditation pieces. It is not my favorite thing to be in relaxation and have to listen to a hard-rock guitar solo. (Happy to say it has never happened in these classes, but has at other places.)
    These are simply my opinions and I am open to trying new things.
    I look forward to our next class.

    Hi Sam!

    Happy to join your class next Monday for the first time. I am somewhat new to yoga but have done Pilates for 6 years and I think that has really helped me to "grasp" yoga. I love standing poses that challenge your core and work on balance. I am not familiar either with yoga mantras or songs, but did enjoy the sun salutation in Shwetha's class and found it both beautiful and soothing so I bet I will enjoy any other mantra/chant you share with us!

    See you Monday!

    2 · June 13, 2014

    • Samantha C.

      Hi Chantal, Excited you are coming! It sounds like you will do great in the class with your pilates experience. I love mantras and chanting -- my classes don't really revolve around sound in that way - though in my own teaching journey, I would love to get there one day. I do enjoy a challenge though, so I can see how we can weave it in a little more. I look forward to meeting you on Monday! Namaste! :)
