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

I typically enjoy more of a flow/vinyasa practice but was looking for a good stretch to help my soar back and body. I’m going through a loss and major life changes and needed a practice where I could care for my aching body and relax. This was it! I feel less tense after this. Thank you, David!

I came back to the 30 day challenge after a 2 week hiatus, filled with hard physical and emotional work and not enough sleep. This was an excellent class to come back to, as now I feel renewed and energized. Namaste.

I am amazed these classes on this challenge are excellent. Struggling with a few things but wonderful to feel the stretching and no doubt in time when I repeat all of these challenges they will become easier and maybe my body will accept them more. Thank you again for such clear instruction!!!

You did it again, David! This class is nurturing and so mindful. I love the combination of lower and upper body release. The standing section was so precise. This class and your words brought me to a higher level of respect and care for my body. Thank you so very much!

Thank you for this class. I am taking the 30 day challenge, cherry picking each class based on what I feel my body needs for that day. This class is perfect for a rainy day on the island;) It's going to end up being a 60 day challenge because I want to do every class listed! Great teachers. Best. Yoga. Site. Ever.

I did this class the morning after a race (cycling), and it took me from stiff and sore to limber and relaxed. Thank you
