Great class. Could not attend live. Great quality video. Well organized and easy to follow. As a yoga teacher, it brought to mind why I sequence in a "blueprint" method. Wonderful review of the primary movement patterns with examples of regression and progressions to cultivate an inclusive practice. This can be challenging, and I love her concepts of labeling the movement and not people. Great use of a "demo person" for visual learners. So well done. Jessica, please do a series of these classes. Thank you.

It was pertinent to my certification, as well as knowledge in the field for which I work.

I appreciated the refresher of the 5 primary movements, stability/mobility, adding in contact points, and not labeling students or postures beginners or advanced. The course lacked creativity and awareness on how we can actually make yoga classes accessible or inclusive. A block was the only example given for props and there wasn't much shared on variations of postures such as using a chair for your sun salutations, using a wall for stability/another contact point, or variations with blocks in downward dog.

Very thoughtful and well put together class; I am already applying what I learned in my fitness and yoga classes. I highly recommend this video as a learning experience. I wish the teacher had had more time to slow the series down and go into more detail as she has so much to offer, but she was rushed to fit class into given time frame. I hope ACE uses this effective teacher in more series and gives her time to teach a longer course worth more CEC's. Nonetheless, the class was really integrated to the needs of the fitness and yoga teacher, and a wonderful and engaging learning experience. Thank you all.
