I agree with a_muggle about the chair and wall though. I did the chair exercise standing where I could because all I had was an upholstered chair and some I could not do the movements well due to the large back and arms of the chair. But they worked well standing. I also wished it would have listed the wall, because I had to pause to figure it out too.
What I liked was the instructor moved through the paces at a great speed. I felt I got a great feel for yoga and was not bored (I was really afraid it would be too slow, boring).
All in all- wonderful first time. Thank you!!!!

I've been thinking about starting yoga for months now but didn't think I'd be able to due to $$ and I would have to travel out of town for an actual class. This was my first attempt and I've gotta say, I think I may have actually found a type of exercise that I could come to love. This is the first time in three years that I have felt relaxed and my muscles are loose! Believe me, with two kids under 3 years old, I never thought I'd feel anything but tension and stress for years to come. Thanks for offering these great videos and I can't wait to get farther into the beginners program!

Though I've been doing some form of yoga on and off for many years now, had never been to any class.
Enjoyed the simple and basic stretches.
Thank you!!

I'm still tingling from this, my first yoga session in a long time. Listening to and feeling my body during the relaxation at the end made me aware of awakening energy and muscles excited to be in use again.
Thank you for your wonderful website.

Thank you for this website, especially the programs for beginners! I really appreciate everything you have done to make yoga accessible for everyone. Thank you!
This class is particular was a great start to my journey to learn more about yoga. I have taken a class here and there over the years, but I want to integrate yoga into my life and I believe the DYWM website and programs will be the key for me.

I like to think I'm in some sort of shape, but I am pretty sure this video just kicked my butt. Loved it - and I'm glad I decided to start at the very beginning!

I'm just beginning year 12 and know I'm going to be so stressed throughout the year, but knowing I have this now means I can relax with these videos at any time!
Thank you so much!

Such a PERFECT video for me. Thank you David!!!

I started my new stretching routine today. Your video is perfect. I'll do it for a week and move to the second one for beginners. I did not use a wall.. just put my arm up and stretched it back. Sad how out of shape I am. Starting with your video.. that changes today. Thanks.

Thanks for the letting me know, fine people. I've added 'wall' and 'chair' to the list of equipment needed, so no one will have that issue in the future.
Take care,
David
