If you're having issues with the player:

This class is meant to be a part of a series that you can see in our program Establish Your Core Stability and Strength and on our Yoga for Beginners page. This class shows you what a full-length class feels like when you put a lot of emphasis on core stability throughout. As we said in the earlier classes, the intention is to feel light as you do yoga, maintaining a slow, deep breath, while attempting to balance effort and release in everything that you do.

Equipment: Strap, Block
Style: Hatha Yoga, Yoga for Athletes, Yoga for Runners, Yoga for Seniors, Yoga for Back Care

This is one of my all time favorite classes. Everything about it is perfect, other than an editing error at 44:35. I do not know if you can still go back an fix it, but that would be fantastic as the error is rather jarring. Thank you for all you do.

Wow, I'm surprised that was missed after so many years! I'll see what we can do. Thanks for pointing that out.

Beautiful and deeply healing. I am rehabbing a hip injury during the Corona virus. Since I cannot see my PT, this is a great way to keep healing my hip. Thank you David!

Such thanks!
The incredibly clear
And stable guidance
Is so healing;
A deep release
And open space
Connecting with consciousness
In shavasana
The tears stream down to ears
Opening to
Whole being

Wow, I really loved this class! Thank you David! I am doing the "Establish Your Core Stability and Strength" program, and I've really been loving it so far. I was able to get into the present moment in this class, as David gently moved us into the poses slowly, deliberately and precisely. I so appreciate taking the time to experience each nuance of the practice. This is the type of yoga I love most, and I thank DYWM for making these classes available.

This class is so subtlety amazing - really allows for space and time to notice what the body is doing and needing. Many thanks~

A wonderful, calming class that works out the “kinks” after a long work week. David’s voice is also calming and his instructions are thorough.

I agree with so many of the people who left comments. David, you calm me, center me and leave me with a positive, nurturing outlook for the remainder of the day. Thank you.

I had to return to more gentle classes. I was doing the 30 day empower yourself challenge and had to tap out at class 9. I have an old sprained ankle so I wasn't feeling good in the knee, back, and hips area at all for a few days after that. Im not giving up though! Your website gives us hurt folk several options to fit our needs. This is still the greatest discovery, thank you so much for what you do!!!
