Thank you, David, for making this video! I have been blessed with yet another soccer injury so I am unable to practice as I normally would right now. Thank you for taking on the feedback and making a video like this, guaranteed I will be returning to it lots in the next few weeks to assist recovery :)

I've been following, and am now a subscriber, to this website for a while now but never paid attention to the chair yoga sessions. Today is Thursday - broke my leg last Friday - and I've started doing the chair yoga to help my poor "confined to sitting" back. You are filling a very important niche, David - thank you!!

Just had a total hip replacement and this and the class for chair upper body have been a bit of a lifesaver. I'll look at the chair sun salutations tomorrow.

Thank you very much! I am recovering from a surgery on the knee, and this class is very great to soften it to pursue my ergotherapy and physiotherapy exercices during the day. I do it with the chair yoga for the upper body, so I continue to work all my body even with my limitation.

Thank you for this class. I am recovering from a broken leg and this class helps me practice yoga even with my limitations. It's very encouraging to me.
