Class Description: 

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!


so amazing

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.

I did it! :-)

What a great feeling. Meditation and shivashina was really revitalizing.

Difficult, but Awesome!

I did this class 2 days ago and I must say, I am, all over :) But immediately after this class, I felt absolutely amazing! That long relaxation was just wonderful...I felt like a wet noodle :) Also, I can feel a lot more open and flexible already in my hips and shoulders. A note to all beginners, just use a strap for all the binds/twists and having a block nearby for that twisted triangle might not hurt either ;) Thanks David!!

Love all of your classes

Peacock Peeper

I agree with another earlier comment - I liked the introduction of a more intermediate class at this point in the beginner to intermediate transition. I struggled, though, with the lack of instruction about how to best benefit from the more complicated binds if my hands did not yet meet.

Also, This video gets an extra star because how awesome is the peacock in the background?

Strap for Binds
Lagunatick 1 year ago

Peacock - Like you, I've struggled with some of the binds when asked to clasp hands or wrists. Either my arms aren't long enough or my flexibility is not yet there (most likely both). I've been using a short woven belt to help me do these attachments while being able to take advantage of the shoulder stretching that appears to be the goal of the bind.

This continues to be my go-to

This continues to be my go-to yoga class. It still challenges me and I can see improvements over the 12 months I've been practicing with this class. I really like David's instructions.
