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!

Love this class because it hits various areas. It is probably one of my favorites. The closing meditation is also great.

I had technical problems with this video too. It stopped right before the 16-min mark and then the next time it froze, the whole browser window froze. (In Chrome). So far, all the other videos have played fine in this browser.

had trouble with audio

I kept trying to watch the video but some milky way commercial kept playing over the audio of the video and it was very stressful. I tried to close all my windows and reopen the video but had the same problem. Same commercial playing over and over as I tried to do the video. So I only made it for 18 minutes when i know I could have done the whole thing.
