If you are anything like me, you may find yourself doing a lot of online yoga classes and wishing that every once in a while you could do a class without so much instruction. Just be guided through a sequence by the names of the poses, and spend the rest of the time with your own thoughts and breath.

The latest class on my YouTube channel, Minimal Cues Yoga Class for Yoga Teachers, is exactly that.

This is a full body flow, and no props are necessary.

If you want to do the practice without any talking interrupting your thoughts, I've written out the poses (with just a couple words of guidance) for the full 30 minute practice below.
