This class is very relaxing and also helpful for the tightness I have from whiplash. I had an emotionally draining day today, and I feel such a sense of relief after this class. Thank you David.

Really enjoyed this class. I need to strengthen my back and I can't lay down on the floor, so this was perfect for me. Excellent instructions. I will repeat this class on a regular basis.

David, this class was perfect as I am recovering from a fractured and sprained ankle. My upper body feels quite tense as I am on crutches and this class has really helped me to relax and release around my neck, arms and shoulders. I'll be doing it every day for the next few weeks!

These are amazing stretches for the upper body. It is cool to be able to stretch so many little areas of the shoulders, upper back, and neck. This practice covers all of the intricate areas that definitely make a difference in how one feels. So many places where stress can be stored. Great video!! Thank you David

Thank you so much for doing a video for those of us with mobility issues! For the first time, I have hope that I will become flexible again and be able to do more and more as I utilize your instruction.

Wonderful class, thank you David. My first attempt at Yoga post ankle fusion surgery 4 days ago. The stretch and opening was much needed.
