If you're having issues with the player:

This is a fun, challenging and fulfilling class if you like to get into the deeper stretches early on. David takes you through a quick Sun Salutation then moves right into a series of binds and deep stretches for the shoulders, legs and hips. You'll enjoy this one!

Equipment: None
Style: Hatha Yoga

This class was almost entirely inaccesible to me, despite being relatively flexible. Would really appreciate these stretches if modifications were offered with more time in each pose.

Would be more effective if an extra minute would have been spent on each bind description with modifications for the many of us who can't (yet?) approach stretching like that. Either that or call it advanced.

It's always good to get on the mat, but this really was an impossible sequence of stretches for me. Sometimes I feel like I'm a different species from the teacher bending and stretching like this. Maybe my arm/leg proportions are just way different from the teacher's. I'd need to work out some major modifications to make this one effective.

Shoulders and hips get a workout with this practice. Tough however agree with other comments that with modifications this is a wonderful to help tight shoulders and hips.

I really enjoyed this, short and as usual, great instructions and some nice stretches.
I do miss starting off from a centred place though even if for a few seconds. A lot of the videos on the site head straight into the practice.

Wow...short and sweet. Great class for morning before my cardio run/walk. Nice relaxed pace. Thank you.

Great bind variations - also diagnostic: showed me clearly which side is more open, and encouraged me to keep practicing for more balance. Excellent guidance and modelling by David. Once again.
Becoming a fan.
