Superb

As someone new to yoga, I was thinking this might be to hard but I wanted to give this style of yoga a try .
I am so glad that I did! I really enjoyed the practise and intend to go further into this style of yoga. I think it would suit me in the end to practise a mix of different styles to get a real balance.

Too Advanced for Beginner

I've been practicing yoga for over three months, six days a week, using David's Restoring Balance & Breathing Through Movement. I thought I was ready for another class but this one was overly ambitious for me.

The first half of the class requires upper body strength that I simply do not have, even following the suggested easier positions. I found the class discouraging.

If you are a true beginner, I suggest you try other classes before attempting this one and expect to do this class for several weeks before you feel like you are starting to get the hang of it.

Great class, beginner? Not for me.

This beginner completed 20 minutes and decided more would likely be too much. I've pushed myself to get back up to where I was a couple/few years ago and injured some muscles. I don't want the injury to go into joints too so I am taking this class with a grain of salt when it states it is beginner. Holding those poses for so long right at the beginning gave me a hasty and deep burn in my arms and wrist pain beyond strengthening level. Its disheartening to see what a beginner class will do with me now-a-days. Not giving up, just listening to my body and not insisting on fitting into a "rating" of beginner. I am at my own level and listening to my body is a great lesson for me these days.

Awesome

I agree with other comments. This video IMO is too challenging for a beginner. The long holds take a lot of leg strength. As usual Fiji is excellent here.

A perfect yoga class-thank

A perfect yoga class-thank you!

Got me over a plateau

I've followed this video so often I felt I needed to comment. This was the video that helped me build the strength and basic foundation I needed to progress from a beginner into trying intermediate classes. Even now that I readily do intermediate videos now, I still come back to this one and find there's so much here to continue to improve. I'm still working up to the arm balance at the end - some day!

Great for Building Strength Gently

I am a teenager with fibromyalgia. It's hard for me to find ways to exercise that don't hurt. This video is a great way to build up strength and flexibility for my whole body. I recommend this practice to anyone wanting a gentle and total body work-out.

Great explanation!

I love how it explains everything and shows transitions! It is a strengthening session and I couldn't make it all the way through, but alas this is only my second session of yoga :) Even if you cant make it through the whole video, watch the whole video it helps a lot! <3
