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

Awesome. I work with some stiffness in my lower back and hips and this class puts together all the most helpful, deep, thorough, gentle stretches to nourish this part of my body. It's not an exercise practice it's a stretch practice and something I want to add to my routine several times a week. This is a gem. Thank you.

Thank you! I loved the stretches, reminders to balance effort and release & to protect the low back, savasana, and questions. Very considerate. Namaste

Just finished all the sessions of the "Yoga for absolute beginners" series. Going in, I was curious, but rather sceptic, about yoga. I enjoyed almost all of the classes immensely. I'd often feel lazy and really have to pushing myself to do it, but I'd always end up feeling so much better afterwards. This class was particularly wonderful.
It's fascinating how you can change a sensation so fundamentally just by shifting your focus to a particular aspect of it - for me, that was often the case when David reminds us to "lengthen" the whole body instead of stretching just an individual body part.

Needless to say, I just subscribed as a member. This is some wonderful content, available for free, and I am glad to support it.
