  • Dear Katrina, I just completed this for the first time. I’m so stiff and inflexible. I watched clips of several channels until I chose yours. Thank you so much, Justin from The U.K

  • That’s to hard for me. Don’t you have something more beginning.. I have sciatica and artritis on the center and too ofy back. Any video you can recommend

  • Just did this with my friend who has issues with his joints and has a form of arthritis. He loved it. Thank you for the flow so much! Lots of love.

  • Usually much of a cardio, strength and muscle trainer so I forget to stretch a lot. Thank you so much for this ❤ your use of language is stunning it helped me visualise the stretches even when I was looking away from the screen ��

  • Have done for whole quarantine tom merrick his mobility/flexibility routines for like 3 5 times a week. I can say my flexibility improved lots! And my hips don’t hurt anymore and aren’t stiff anymore! I’m happy

  • Damn! This workout kicked my arse! I’ve been doing Yoga since I turned 40 (3 months ago) and discovered your channel via a YouTube search for Yoga for Beginners. Keep up the good work and keep kicking my arse! ��

  • Thank you greatly for your guidance and encouragement. I’ve been working daily on my flexibility using your follow-along’s and it has made a difference. I appreciate the ambiance, music, and variations in your routines. Big ups!

  • Difficulty level: beginners can do this! Very beginner friendly and I love how the instructor let’s us know of the modifications for advanced intermediate and beginner level and so gently reminds it’s okay whichever works for us.

    Impact: very very helpful. My body has been stiff and sore and this stretched it all out and relieved the constant pain I’ve had. This is also very relaxing for you mind.
    Also the whole sequence of movements is perfectly placed one after the other to stretch and then relax the parts you worked on.

    100% would recommend this for relaxation! It’s perfect. One of the best relaxation yoga tutorials I’ve found so far.

    Overall great experience.
    Thank you for sharing!

  • Been doing Katrina’s yoga regularly during pandemic lockdown. She is wonderful. Seen a lot of yoga videos but Katrina is the best.

  • Hi guys! Thanks a lot for the video. Would you be so kind making a morning routine that would pe “lighter”, like for warming and stretching your body for the day? Thank you in advance!

  • My dog hung out with me doing this lol. I loved this soooo much I’m so sore today and these stretches are really making a difference

  • You are such a treasure! I’ve been following your channel for about a month and a half and when I first tried squatting my right hip would burn in agony. I was amazed that I was able to squat in this stretch with you!

    I’ve recommend you to all my friends and family. I’m so appreciative for all your hard work and dedication. I’m truly thankful.

  • So I thought I was hot stuff since I thought your beginner workout felt too easy/gentle and tried this one. I got 3.5 plank-cobra-shoulder-dog’s done and literally couldn’t do it any more. I’d better get a few weeks of daily exercise under my belt before I attempt this one again.:P

  • Great way to start the day. Doing this one before going running. Will you do a yoga session that focuses on before and after running? I’d love that. Loving doing your yoga sessions. Gives me such good energy. hugs

  • This was amazing! It was a bit challenging on my hips but it helped release/lighten my pms cramps and headache. Thank you so much! I’m going to use this video every morning for my stretching routine now. And I couldn’t believe how fast that 20 minutes went by! ��

  • Can anyone explain the sensation/what to do for that chest stretch at 4:10 or so? I can’t seem to feel anything close to stretching the pec, just a bit confused

  • I have an achy body because of my jobs. I am doing this routine a couple of times every week and instantly feel so much better. It made a huge difference. Thank you so much for this ������

  • I really liked this workout but it was challenging for me I must say but that is a good thing! I liked that the workout had stretching in the beginning and end, thanks! I’m having trouble with my hands and my left shoulder, so it was hard for me but I just did what I could. ��

  • I LOVE that you go so quick, i follow other youtubers who give little online yoga classes and it takes around an hour!! Love just doing a pose and going straight to the next <3

  • I’m so glad I found this video!! 20 minutes felt like time never existed as my body relieves all the pain through the steps you taught:)

  • Sarah, I LOVE your yoga videos! I especially like videos like this that push me for part of the time & finish with a good deep stretch. Thank you!!

  • Got back into yoga, love that your voice is soothing and easy to follow. These workouts leave me feeling sweaty and help my neck, shoulders and back so so much. Thank you Sarah b❤️❤️

  • Loving sarahbeth yoga. Great tutorials with explanations but not constantly talking away about anything and everything as other yoga tutorials do on here.

  • omg… felt the fire… this was a great session… love your encouragement… especially when it was a bit more challenging… also loved the optional and new poses to try… thank you… feeling proud… feeling great.:)

  • I was in bed playing cooking fever then i thought stuff it I’ll do this new vid. Now I’m relaxed and ready for sleep..if not a bit warm and breathing heavy. Loved it!

  • Love your follow along videos I have been sharing with my family during the COVID period and they have really enjoyed gaining so much knowledge and improving their mobility with your help in these great videos…so thanks for sharing!

  • This is such a good one! Thank you! Any tips on keeping the core engaged the whole time? What does it mean to keep your ribs stitched together? Despite lots of core practice over the last year, I still haven’t lost my little tummy and it’s difficult to stay firm.

    Can I just say, I really appreciate how modest you are in these videos. I live with a bunch of little to teen boys and it’s so nice not to have to worry if they decide to walk by while I’m yoga-ing. (We’re a pretty conservative family:))

  • Ok. Been working this routine 4x/wk for a month. I am a lot stronger and my hip are way more flexible. My hamstrings are better but still stiff. I’m going to keep this up until I can do all routines with strength.

  • Finally, someone that understands relaxing stretch. Perfect, exactly what I was looking for. Didn’t need to break a sweat and kill myself.

  • I love your no-distractions background, your clear directions that enable me follow along without having to watch, and your great catch phrases (“Strengthen, don’t strain.” “Growth begins just past your comfort zone.” “You got this.” “Smile.” “Your best practice is your daily practice.”) Your videos are the best!

  • Damn this video was f*cking awesome and the narration wasn’t distracting like some other videos out there. Loved it and will watch again

  • Wow now that is plank work. I thought ahh only 20 mins won’t be that hard lol �� never underestimate you ❤️�� feel better for it. And I do love when you finish the video with shavasina and proper namaste ��

  • Brilliant, love your follow-along videos. Doing it every day and getting more and more flexible and stronger. Keep up the great work!

  • I’ve recently come across your yoga classes and enjoy your calm energy and core building poses. Six years ago I experienced a neurological illness and have had to rebuild balance and strength (in past years I was athletic and very flexible). I am also recovering from severe carpal tunnel syndrome (I chose no surgery, multiple daily exercises), began doing yoga again daily 1 May 2020 (attempted several occasions, post illness, but discontinued due to wrist pain), my upper body is weak; do you have a video/ could you recommend/ would you consider making a class that would be gentle on the wrists yet allowing for the strength and flexibility I prefer in the classes you offer?

  • that was amazing! I really enjoyed this practice. Your comments are clear and i knew what to do. Feel energized now! I love when after yoga morning practice my breath is so much deeper. Thank you for this:))

  • Been doing this routine for 7 weeks 3-4 times a week. The stretching is amazing can now grab my heels and almost do a flat pancake at the end like you.

  • I know this video is old now but did anyone else notice when she stopped doing one of the core exercises for a few reps? I was like what why isn’t she doing it with me?! ��
