Dear Emily Your exercises are fantastic but I would love to know something: what is the right sequence of your class "too tight to stretch". I'm a REAL beginner and I find a bit difficult understand what to do.A lesson a day? From the first video to the last and then again?I have huge benefits but I don't have enough knowledge to choose by myself the right path.I'm afraid to forget something. Have a nice day. Ciao
Hi Pietro! I am so sorry I missed your last comment!
I appreciate your thoughtfulness in starting your yoga practice.
Although the practices I taught are released in a certain order, you do not need to practice them in any specific order. They are quite gentle and should have a good amount of explanation of the poses. Therefore, you can choose to practice them in any order you would like.
However, your idea of going through from start to finish then beginning again is a good one because I think you may have more variety that way and variety is good for the body and mind.
Also, when you are ready to try other things, if you haven't already, you may enjoy Alana's Too Tight to Stretch seasons, as well as Arturo Peal's classes. They also are gentle and offer a lot of explanation.
I hope this helps and please do not hesitate to ask me anything else.
Great question! I paused in answering to see if Emily had a response. Most likely she will have her own opinion on this age old question.
It seems like you feel a connection with Emily (isn't she great!?) and these practices, so yes, by all means there is so much benefit in repeating the lessons to allow for a sense of "progress" and refinement.

Wow.. Two Teachers at the same time. A successful start !!! Thank you, Kira, answer..while I was writing to Emily I didn't notice answer. Well, yes..I have a problem, and I hope it is not going to be serious but honestly I'm a bit afraid of it: I have some issue with my elbow and my pinky finger..It's the ulnar nerve, and I have to do something quite fast.Someone is talking about SURGERY:(. LEt's find a better way and where I live now there is no support for an alternative way, so I choose you.I don't believe in magic but maybe with some gentle exercise and breathing. Happy New Year Emily and Kira and to all the family of yoganytime.com
