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

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.

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.

Amazing! Did this class this morning, and it was great for my lower back!

Question: how often is this good to do?
