I live in rural Australia and don't have good access to internet. I buy the classes that I really like so that I can do them anytime. For some reason this video (and a couple of others that I've encountered) don't seem to have an option to purchase and download. Can anybody help??

Unfortunately, not all of the videos on DYWM have a downloadable option. Another video that I really like, Sun Salutes with Binding Twists, is also not available.

After doing this "Level II" class I think I might be closer to an intermediate student that I originally thought. This was a good class, a good total-body practice, with slow flows and uncomplicated moves. But it still shows lunges with one knee firmly planted on the floor (I opted to raise my knee). Eagle pose is probably the most challenging pose in the class. If you are a true beginner, this might be a challenge. If not, it's still a good stretch, a notch past gentle.

I am beginning to practice yoga again after a few months and this was a nice class for me. Thank you, David!

Great simple yet semi-challenging flow, and I love the shoulder work at the end. David guides the best savasanas, he gets me to such a wonderful place of relaxation that I have such a hard time achieving on my own!

I'm getting back to yoga after a break. My body is not a supple as it once was. I'm not a beginner but I sure am rusty. This is a good class to get my muscles moving, my mind clear. Thank you David! I enjoy all your classes and meditations.

Thanks for the class David. This class, while it wasn't the kind of challenging that makes me curse under my breath or make grunting sounds, was warming for my body, which I liked. It felt very safe and the pace included lots of repetition to make sure the body was warmed up. It seemed to pass more quickly than some of the other classes I've tried here.
