Experts say: "When you watch Tim's videos, his laid-back 'California' vibe truly shines through. People love him because his yoga videos are geared for both beginner and intermediate practitioners, and he'll also throw an advance yoga posture into the mix, which makes his videos more dynamic than other typical online classes. He always gives very specific instructions, too. When you watch Tim, you feel like you are getting more than just an online yoga class — you feel like you are getting to know the 'real Tim.'" — Serena Tom, Yoga Teacher, Equinox

She advocates that yoga is for EVERYBODY, that people of all ages, sizes and body types can have a regular yoga practice.

Watch this video tutorial which asks you to explore the distrust you live with, and that we all live with, from living in a society that constantly offers bad support, or support that actually takes away more than it offers in the form of debt. What would it look like to reach a wall, and to know that beyond that wall we didn't have to live like this? In this set of exercises we do intense breath, visualization, and movement to connect with and imagine a world beyond financialization. *This video comes with free access to our introduction and warm-up videos.
In the first tutorial we learn to unplug our nervous systems from the global economy, to protect ourselves from social media corporations and digital technology like smartphones, and to establishing new connections with people and other things in the world. In the second, we learn about the threat of passive authoritarianism (way capitalism has implanted in each of us a desire to be ruled) and how to rebel from the inside out. In the final tutorial in the first series we break down the wall of distrust that debt of everything has built inside of (and between) us, and which it has made us pay for!
Specifically designed for pregnant ladies (like Kristoffer herself!), this sequence helps define arms and open the shoulders to counteract any hunching that might occur as a result of carrying extra weight. Similar to a regular flow class, it involves poses like lunges, downward-facing dog, and chaturanga (modified with your bump in mind). Be sure to talk to your doc first before attempting.

… However, I was immediately skeptical of the opacity of a marketing phrase “non-Amazon rubber” which usually means Indonesian and Malaysian rubber. There is a significant problem of illegal logging, slash and burn clearing of primary rainforests, besides the 'usual' associated losses of flora and fauna, it results in a hazardous seasonal haze that covers much of lower Southeast Asia. A topic that deserves more turning over.

I just got mine so cannot review on how long it lasts. I love the color. I prefer a thin mat so I feel grounded and can hold my poses but when I do restorative or other yogas that I feel I need a bit more cushion I just place this one on top of another thin one and it is perfect. I am not experiencing that my mat is slick like some other reviews stated. I like sticky mats and I think this one is perfect and I do not slide around at all. I am 5'7 and fit on this mat fine but wish they offered a longer mat as I prefer a little more length.
