    My first time on yoga selection. I enjoyed this class a lot. Am curious, would you recommend height under the seat for titthibhasana or Eka Hasta Bhujapidasana? I have a short spine and very long limbs for my height. The height helps in taking off. But wondering if I just need lower abdominal strength. Maybe I’ve been cheating myself by using the blocks? Your input is valuable. Thanks, Rod. See you in another class.

    Loved this class. Your instructions were clear and detailed. It was the first time for me to straighten my legs in Tittibhasana. Thank you.
