Always good - a great place to start when I ve had a hiatus in my yoga practice. Thank you!
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this yoga session!! Both got in a nice sweat, stretch and release!
Harder than you think. It should be three drops of sweat. Good flow for the morning but be careful if you have knee issues
Wow! This was really hard for me. Even though she kept saying to go at your own pace, I just couldn t keep up and follow the poses. I ended up stuck on table top or down dog. I guess I m really out of shape!
So far my favorite class and teacher
Perfect start to the day!
This is a great class to get you going! It starts slow but then builds to a vinyasa flow. Don t be intimidated by the "intermediate" rating of this class, there are no truly difficult postures, but there is a flow that will get your heart beating. Jackie provides modifications and gives frequent reminders to take things at your pace, so if the flow is a little too fast, you can slow it down for yourself.
Such a wonderful way to wake up in the morning! Looking forward to practicing the whole series. Thank you so much Jackie!
Perfect! Good even for those days you don t want to do yoga but know you should - I felt better by the end! I did break a sweat
Beautiful morning class! So great for awakening my body and stilling my mind. And I especially love the birds in the background!
Excellent flow for the morning. Great teacher.
Excellent! I have been doing this series in the mornings and it is such a great way to start my day! It makes me better, and that in turn makes my world better. Thank you!
great 30 min wake up class. I always love Jackie s teaching- she says enough but not too much. Her tone is soothing, encouraging and calm. Her cues are excellent. Thanks as always
Great way to start the day! Thanks!
Great morning flow! I love this series with Jackie! The right mix of stretching and work first thing in the morning and I love the positive intentions set forth. I look forward to starting my day with Jackie!
Great class - just what I needed today! Thank you, Jackie!
Thank you Jackie for this class! I enjoyed it a lot - it was rather past-paced for me and there were moments when I had to pause to catch up with you; however, as someone else mentioned in the comments, the class was very consistent and grounding. I also enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and sounds, as well as the opportunity to check if my thoughts are aligned with my intentions. Thank you!This was the first time that I got to practice with you, but I am sure I will check out your other classes :)
Jackie - I ve been practicing with you since about 2017 now. This class is one of the best - you are so grounding and your classes are paced just right - consistently. In this class, I particularly was moved by noticing my thoughts and the things I whisper to myself - the power they have if I allow it.
On this Thanksgiving Day in 2020 - I am even more grateful to you and the gifts you give. Thank you.

Janet & Shon,
Thank you so much for your review and heartfelt message. It means so very much to me! I am honored to be your online teacher, and I am so happy you enjoyed this class. Namaste and happy holidays.
Very relaxing and smooth practice. Highly recommended.
Glad you enjoyed this one. Namaste!
This was the perfect "wake up flow"! It got my breath and blood flowing, my center feels strong and I even broke a little sweat. A nice balance of length of time and difficulty.
This wake is perfect for me.
Great way to wake up!! Nice flow to get the body moving and warm. Thanks, Jackie!
Wonderful. I randomly selected this class (as I often do)...and chose to practice outside on my deck in the mountains. The bird sounds were fabulous...I wasn t sure if the chirps and tweets were recorded, or right here. Thank you Jackie, the pace and your rhythm is "just right". Also inspired by the quote re: whispers and their power. Thank you! Breathe deeply.
I love that you got to practice this outside. Those birds really were singing to us! I am so happy you enjoyed. Namaste to you.
Perfect way to start to day !
short but very good class!!!
I have been following Jackie for almost 10 years; she is one of my favourites in YogaDownload. One of the things I love about her classes is the creative way she finds to add on to flows so you are repeating several postures but always doing something different. I was disappointed to repeat the exact same sequence four times in this class, particularly because it is such a short class. I do love the fact that the background music is not intrusive and distracting as it is in so many YogaDownload classes.
Thanks for the review and feedback Jo. I love that you have been on YogaDownload for 10 years. How awesome! Namaste to you :)
Perfect way to wake up and start my day. I loved the heart opening and twists to awaken my spine.
Such a lovely style - so glad I found these classes.
This ^wake up^ was amazing! At some point a bit hard to follow coz Im still a beginner, but not too bad that I couldn t push myself a bit and enjoy every moment of it. The body starts stretching and waking up in a soft manner and reacts wonderfully. Jackie explains and follows you in every moment with her voice, remarks and instructions to breath, as if she was next to you knowing exactly what you need to hear. I definitely feel energised and relaxed at the same time...balanced somehow and ready to start my day. Thank you Jackie! This will definitely be my routine every morning from now on.
Wonderful! Keep practicing and it will all come together. Namaste :)
I ve loved Jackie s classes since I began listening to free Yoga Download podcast (episode 31) about 10 years ago. I finally subscribed when COVID came around, and now I may never go back to in-person classes by preference. I love Jackie s flow sequences, calming voice, moderate pace. This episode is a nice addition to my collection! And I like that the background sound is low enough that I can play my own music. Thanks Jackie for so many years of great yoga!
Hi Ann! This is just awesome. I love that we have been practicing together for so long! Thank you for the feedback and for your kind words. Stay connected and Namaste to you!
Excellent class as usual by Jackie, always one of my favorites. Great flow, good twists and lots of heart openers.
Thanks for the review, Jo! Namaste to you. Have a wonderful morning.
Gentle wakening, well done!
Thanks jl. Take care and Namaste!
Great wake up!
Thanks Kathy! Namaste :)
As always, wonderful! Thanks to Jackie.
I am happy you enjoyed it Cj. Namaste to you!
Perfect start to the day! Thank you ??
Wonderful, Jenna. Glad you enjoyed. Namaste! Thank YOU!
This was a great flow that built heat and opened me up for the day. I really enjoyed the beginning stretch with the leg stretched long and to the side in tabletop....I felt my whole side body, including my psoas, just sigh in relief! I ll be adding that stretch to my favorites!
Sara, that is my new favorite posture. It does feel so good! I am happy that you enjoyed this class. Namaste :)
Jackie is my go-to instructor and I love this class as much as all the others. It was exactly what I needed this morning!
Wonderful, Nikki :) Stay tuned for more. Namaste :)
Another amazing class from Jackie. Just what I needed this morning!
Glad you enjoyed it, Claire! Namaste :)
I love Jackie s classes but maybe morning yoga is not for me.
Sorry to hear you didn t enjoy this one. You may enjoy a Hatha style instead? Namaste and have a great day :)
Really enjoyed this morning flow. Love your calm voice and of course, loved the treehouse setting. (I m biased given it s my treehouse but a real treat to see you doing yoga there!). The pace of the flow of this class was the perfect way to start a busy day.
Mary! As you can see from reviews, everyone LOVES your beautiful treehouse. Thank you for providing such a gorgeous space, and for your review. Namaste! Hope to see you soon.
lovely morning flow in a beautiful setting, enjoyed hearing the birds sing. The trees are amazing!
Thanks for the review and feedback Lesley. Namaste! I agree that the trees are stunning.
Loved this quick and simple but still challenging morning routine
Thanks for the review, CmH. I am so glad you enjoyed it.
the treehouse and music volume and bird sounds (although birds could have come from my window too) were a perfect morning atmosphere for a smooth no surprises flow to get up for a positive day. thanks!
Wonderful, Kim. Thank you for the feedback. Stay tuned for more. Namaste :)
Thanks, Kathy! Namaste :)
Perfect for a short morning program. I love how balanced Jackie s classes are. Thanks!
Thanks Caro! I am glad you felt balanced. I aim for that. Namaste :)
what a great way tp start the day. Very relaxing and peaceful. thank you
Wonderful, Jeans. I am so glad it helped you relax. We all need that right now. Namaste :)
Wonderful class and Jackie excellent as always. Will do this class again!
Thanks, Griz! Stay tuned for more 30 min morning classes in the series. Namaste ;)
great wake up routine
Glad you enjoyed! Namaste, AFT.
I really enjoyed this practice! Before this practice I couldn t even sit cross-legged properly, but after, I felt so grounded in my sit-bones. Wonderful and positive-energy building practice!
Perfect Morning Flow will definitely do it again , Thank you Jackie
I am so happy you enjoyed class. Thank YOU, Lilou!
This is a great class! Easy to follow, steady pace.
Thanks, Hooey! Namaste to you :)
Wonderful flow as always! I felt great during and definitely after. Beautiful scenery with birds chirping couldn’t be more peaceful 3
Hi Shiny Penny! Glad you enjoyed :) Namaste.
I enjoyed this yoga routine on a picnic blanket at the playground while my kids played. Feeling accomplished!
Sandy, this sounds dreamy! What an accomplishment. I am so happy you were able to do this. Namaste :)
What a wonderful flow. A nice invitation to your outdoor space. This is great in the afternoon, btw! Thanks, Jackie!
Glad you enjoyed this, Lainie! Thank you for the review and feedback. Namaste.
This was amazing! Thank you Jackie. I adored the bird sounds in the background.
Thanks for the review Amy! They were serenading us! Namaste.
Excellent! What a lovely flow and a gorgeous tree house! Thank you Jackie
Hi Karen, I am happy you enjoyed this. The tree house was super fun. Take care. Namaste!
Amazing class and just what I needed on a Monday morning after a busy weekend at work! Thank you so much :)
Sally, Yoga sure does help! I am glad it gave you what you needed. Namaste, and have a wonderful week.
This is another great one from Jackie! I really enjoyed the class. I felt like it was a good, solid morning yoga practice. Also the setting was just gorgeous. Thank you!
Thanks for the review! I am so happy that you enjoyed it. :)
I love your gentle yet powerful class!!! xoxox
Glad you loved it. I aim for that balance. Namaste!
A lovely energising morning (or anytime) flow. Feeling good! Thank you
Glad you are feeling good, Geri! Take care. Namaste.
This was a great way to start the day. The eagle leg twist towards the end was a nice twist.
Thanks for the review and feedback, Joe. Namaste!
This was wonderful. The tree house location is amazing. I wish I was there.... but I did feel it as I centered my thoughts ... your instructions are perfect. Felt so great after this yoga session. Thank you for providing.
Kathy, It really was a serene location. I am so happy that you were able to feel centered. That is what it is all about. Have a great day. Namaste.
I’ve followed this class twice now and I absolutely love it! I love the excellent cues and fantastic pacing. Jackie is always encouraging and I just love her life-affirming messages. I particularly enjoyed the kneeling crescent lunges and kneeling prayer twists. I suffer from hunched shoulders so this really opened them up and I can feel the benefits now! Lovely to see you outdoors too! Thank you so much!
Awesome Jojo! Thank you for your review and feedback. I am so glad you felt the shoulder opening from this sequence. I tend to round a bit myself and yoga does help! Take care!
Wonderful class Jackie. I loved the sun salutations and positive talk about mindset. I especially liked the last part about what we say out loud and what we whisper to ourselves. I really enjoy your classes. Thank you Jackie.
Deirdre, It is such an important message and a great quote. I am happy it resonated with you. Take care. Namaste!

I agree. I will be making a notice for my wall to remind me every day . thank you
Perfect morning flow! I feel energized and ready for the day. Thank you, Jackie!!!
Yay! Have a wonderful day lzm77!
Lovely start to the morning! Jackie starts slow and builds toward a flow that really wakes up the body. The choice of poses seems thoughtful because it opens up different parts of the body that are tight after a night of sleeping. I feel rejuvenated and ready for my day!
Rachel, glad you enjoyed this class. Heart opening is always awesome in the morning to help energize us. Enjoy your day! Namaste.
A feel good practice- thank you Jackie.
Thanks Lavinia! Namaste :)
Your voice is so relaxing to listen to first thing in the morning. Another awesome class Jackie! Can t wait to practice the rest of the series.
Thanks conkman! Namaste :)
Another winner fromJackie! Loved the flow! Ready for my day! Thank you!
I hope it is a great day, Syls Mom! Namaste to you.
Fabulous way to start the day!!! Love the setting, Jackie.
So glad you enjoyed, Janine. Namaste!
My new favorite morning class! I loved the pacing, way the poses flow together, and your beautiful surroundings! I’m curious where you filmed this—I’m in Colorado too:).
I am so happy you enjoyed. Stay tuned for more in the series. We filmed this one at a farm in Boulder that happened to have this incredible treehouse. :) Namaste!
Excellent class, thank you Jackie! Couldn t help using the vase w/the yellow flower in it for my focal point the whole class. Love the outdoor element of this class and super flow, exactly what my body needed.
Thanks for reviewing Tammy, Namaste.
Excellent, as always. Loved that we went through the flow a third time. :) Unhurried and spacious class but challenging in all the right ways.
Thank you for your review and for this feedback. This is all so good to know. Have a wonderful day . Namaste!
Thank YOU Lavinia. Namaste and have a wonderful day.
I haven t practiced for a month and this was just what I needed to feel revived and encouraged to get back to it. Jackie has become my favorite teacher.
Thanks for the review, Felicia. I am glad you are back at it and that you enjoyed this one. Take care. Namaste.
Really lovely session, thank you.
Thanks Clare. Namaste :)
Like Embry2163, I tried Jackie s latest flow later in the day after work. This sweet, short class allowed me to leave the day behind and transition on a peaceful path back to being mom. Waking up can happen anytime. :) Thanks Jackie!
Janelle, YES. Such truth. I love that you could find some peace in that transition. I am a mama too and yoga sure does help. Namaste!
How exciting to have a new class from Jackie! This felt wonderful - gentle, warming, strengthening, stretching...she fit it all in!
Hi Meghan! I have seen you on YDL for years:) Thanks for your reviews and I am happy you enjoyed it. I am so glad this felt balanced for you. Namaste.
Meghanmyersyeah commented on this review
And I especially love all the front-body opening!
Love your work Jackie. Please give us more treehouse morning flows. Appreciate the intimacy of this class. 40 minutes next time!
Lola Down Under
Hi Lola! There will be 4 more classes in this series. Stay tuned. So far they are all 30 min but at some point I will film a 40 min for you. Take care! Namaste.
Excellent morning flow!Thank you!
Hi Jackie, I love all your classes!!
Please do one for shoulders and neck! :)
Hi Aggy. I am so glad you enjoy them. I will consider a shoulder neck class. For now I believe Elise Fabricant has a good one. Namaste Aggy.
great morning flow
Thanks Nick. Take care. Namaste!
What a lovely way to wake up in the morning! The treehouse setting was serene and the practice was wonderful with a nice flow and some floor stretches at the end. I especially loved the final message. Well done!
Thanks for taking the time to review and connect. I am so glad it hit home for you and felt good. Those birdies were really singing to us. Take care. Namaste.
I loved this class and am happy to hear Jackie will do a morning series! If taking requests--could one of the future flows incorporate more hip/hamstring focus? I run in the evenings and find I m super tight by the next morning!I also appreciate the beautiful natural setting and sounds!
Hi Cat! I love requests. The last 2 classes in the series have more of a hip/hamstring focus. Stay tuned. I am so glad you enjoyed this. I agree the nature sounds are incredible. The birds were singing to us. Namaste.
LOVED the class! You always make me feel like I m in the room you.
Thanks Shekinah! I try my best to do just that. Namaste!
WOW Such a beautiful class as always. Thank you.
So happy to see a new class from Jackie. I’ve been sitting all day, so doing this class loosened me up and even though it’s short, it was well rounded. Keep ‘em coming Jackie.
Awesome Karen. It s amazing all we can do in just 30 minutes. Take care. Namaste.
What a lovely setting! Jackie has easily become my favourite YDL teacher. Another good session.
Hi Anita! Thank you for the review. Namaste!
Jackie does it again, the queen of YDL delivers another awesome class, I m sure to do over and over again. Thank you Jackie!
Hi Lucky! So happy you enjoyed this. Namaste!
Great way to get the day started for a beginner like me.
That’s awesome Serena! Keep practicing. I agree that yoga in the morning is fabulous. Namaste.
Thank you for another great morning flow. The different heart openers were so helpful and your affirmations about our thoughts were exactly what I needed. Thank you!
That’s wonderful to hear. So glad it hit home. We all need those affirmations. Take care, Jenny. Namaste.
Loved this class so much. Even though it s a "morning" class I did it when I got home from work. It was so what I needed! Loving the birds chirping and the tree house and all of the green....perfect! Thank you Jackie. :)
Thanks for your review. I am so happy you liked it. It was so fun filming in the tree house. Have a wonderful evening. Stay tuned for more. Namaste.
Great class. I did this at the end of the day and found it really relaxing and a great way to stretch out of the working day. Love your tree house too. By the way I really enjoyed the lack of music on this class.
Thanks Sylvia! I am so happy to hear you enjoyed it. I appreciate the review and feedback. Namaste!
Hooray!! A new Jackie class!!! When this came up on the list my day was made. A solid wake up flow. Thanks as always for a centering, warming class and your loving, lovely spirit.
Hi Jennifer, I am so glad that you enjoyed this class. Thank you for your review and kind words. Namaste to you!
My new fave! Love the cross-body leg/hip stretch from tabletop at the beginning. I LOVE when Jackie is doing her own flow and talking through it. Calming, centering, hits all my sore spots to loosen them, and great timing. Keep em coming!
I love a 30-minute program. It is just the right length to hit all the tight spots and get a positive mental reset to start the day. Just enough time to feel great and fits into my morning schedule!
Hi Brenda! I am glad you enjoyed it. And that is one of my favorite stretches. Thank you for the review and feedback. This is a series of 5 classes so stay tuned for more 30 minute Sunrise Flows. Namaste!
