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 Seniors, Yoga for Runners, Yoga for Athletes, Yoga for Back Care

I took this class as a part of the 30 day challenge. This has got to be one of the most amazing stretch sessions that I have done in my beginners practice so far! Thank you for such an amazing class.

Back on the mat

Thank you. After having been a very regular yoga practitioner and teacher, I have fallen "off the mat" for several years. In many ways it is difficult (and quite humbling) to feel like a complete beginner again. This was a wonderfully paced and accessible way to get back into my practice. Much appreciated.


great way to start the week

I did it on a Sunday morning. After a month leave vacation abroad, the stretching really is a big boost to start the week and be back to my regular programming. :)

David, thank you so much for this session. Upon completion, there is a beautiful contradiction in my body of feeling relaxed and loose, yet strong. Bless you for your incredible vision for this site, and for following through with your vision. :)

Amazing class, as always.

Thank you David, Fiji and all the DYWM gang for what you're doing for so many people around the world. It's truly a blessing.


Time to align, stabilise, stretch

one of the things I love about David's classes are the way he guides transition in poses. My often impatient nature would easily mean that I didn't align correctly before entering/exiting a pose increasing the risk of injury. David's pace encourages me to slow down, think about positioning, alignment, space, and it makes for a more beneficial class all round. Great that it's a 60ish minute class too! Thanks.
