We have been doing this practice at about once a week in our rotation for several years. We find it to be excellent! Though we have found others we like, none as much as this one. We would like recommendations for others of similar style, length and difficulty.

Hi there.
Thanks for the great feedback! It's difficult to know what you like specifically about this class, but I can recommend that you try Melissa or Sarah's classes. They both have a very similar style to mine, and particularly to this class.

Such a good start

For different reasons I've been away from yoga for a couple of months. This class was perfect as a way back in. Slow pace and David's reassuring voice helped in waking up the body. Thank you!

Gentle but complete class

Thank you, David This is a very well-rounded class, a good workout. I loved specially the insistence on working shoulders and arms without straining them.

I learn or relearn something new every time I come back to this class. This time it was the reminder to keep the arch of the back foot lifted in warrior pose and its variations, and also the way David bends his knees before stepping forward or back with one foot, which gives a little bounce that adds grace to the movement. Thank you.

Left Leg... Right Leg

All the sun salutes start with the left leg. Is that right?

This is one of the first videos we filmed, so may need improvements. I wasn't aware that it repeated with the left leg. Thanks for pointing that out.

Absolutely wonderful practice

Absolutely wonderful practice for a beginner looking to challenge a little further.

I have been doing this

I have been doing this practice once a week for several years. It is my favorite of many yoga videos I use regularly. It is the right, pace the right length and the right advanced beginner difficulty. As I am in my late sixties, I will not be doing the intermediate or more difficult poses. So I appreciate finding the more challenging sequences that stay within my range. Thank you, David!
