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


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!!!

I just love David's calm voice and precise instruction. This class was great. Relaxing and energizing at the same time. My body and mind feel so good!

The feeling I had at the end of this class was so wonderful. A true buzzing feeling throughout my whole body, a calm and quiet mind. Really great attention to the lower body and alignment. Needed this and enjoyed it so much. Thank you.

Such a lovely class. I am trying to get back into my yoga routine and this was a perfect way to re-awaken the body. Thank you David!
