Great class if you are looking to do teacher training or become more proficient at yoga.

Hi David,

It has taken me nearly 3 months of daily work to get to the point where I felt strong enough to attempt this class, and it was an amazing experience now that I have done it. I have learned so much from you, ever since I first found that video of yoga for anxiety and depression which you made, and which I have gone through during tough times. Today, I feel a wonderful sense of accomplishment and I just wanted to say... thank you. The relaxation at the end of this class, in particular, was beautiful. You have such a gentle, calming voice. This class is amazing.

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.

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!

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.

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.
