This class is a quite an experience. It begins with the Ujayi Breath, then flows through a rigorous sun salutation, warming the body and focusing the mind. It then takes you to the floor, where you move through a series of deep stretches. Best of all, it finishes with a 20-minute Total Body Relaxation!

Equipment: None
Style: Hatha Yoga

This complete class is very therapeutic. Just what I needed today. Love the music, Davids calm voice and the meditative quality.

One of my favorites

I love this class so much. Hatha has been the practice I have grown with since I was 15 and this gets all the juicy bits. When I really need to cleanse, get grounded and open my channels this is the one. Thank you so much for keeping this as a staple in the class selection.

A go-to class

I tried this class as part of the Beginner to Intermediate program, and bookmarked it immediately on completing it. This is a nice full body flow that follows my favorite type of progression in in-person classes: warming up with sun salutations that increase in difficulty and incorporate standing poses, then gradually moving down towards the mat.

After a few months of doing yoga 3 times a week at somewhere between the beginner and intermediate levels, I am using the program to get through the holidays when most of my classes don't meet. I was really pleased with the level of this class after taking a several week break where I did very little, and only beginner/gentle, yoga. I made it through the class using a strap whenever my hands couldn't meet (pretty often!) and will go back to it again whenever I need a moderate challenge.

My only comments are that I would have liked more instruction about the purpose of some of the twists: how they should feel, what should be stretched. That would have helped me modify them myself. And although I liked the relaxation at the end, I found it too uncomfortable to lie on the floor for that long, even with a rug underneath my mat. I made it as long as I could-- about 10 minutes-- but will see if I can go longer next time.

I got halfway through this and bailed. I can't get even halfway to any of these twists and there is zero guidance on how to find alternative postures for those of us with barely any flexibility. I expected that there would be given it's programmed in a beginner to intermediate program, particularly given the others are like that; super disappointed. Suggest it isn't pitched at beginners looking to move upwards.

Thanks for the feedback. This is one of our earlier videos and we didn't offer modifications at that time. We'll make note of this.
Take care,

I love this practice. It starts of with movement which warms up the body, then there are these deep intense stretches and slowy the floor comes closer and it ends with a long relaxation. Wonderful!

OMG,, This is so super hard for me.

But I love it. I had a baby five months ago and had gained about 30 pounds. I am so out of shape. I have been doing baby and mom yoga when I don't get a break to do my own yoga. At first, I only made it like 8 minutes into this video. Now I can do 20 minutes. I was breaking a sweat. I love the challenge. I like the focus it has on strengthening my legs. That is where I really need some help. It will be so cool to finally complete this video one day. I'll try again tomorrow. -) I'll be so proud to say I did an intermediate video. Thanks David.
