We really enjoyed this practice and we will do it again. We found the background distracting and we would prefer softer, natural sounds.

I had a great time this morning practicing with this course in the morning. Nice warm-up, right length for every sequence, calm voice and lovely atmosphere in the middle of the park. I'm keen on trying the next class.

I don't feel like I'm doing the cross legged stretch correctly. Can someone step-by-step explain it, along with what I should be doing with my belly button, spine and tailbone? That stretch helps me the most, but I feel like I'm not stretching right.

Really enjoyed this one. Fantastic movements that induced a deep feeling of relaxation. This is for sure one that I will use regularly once I have graduated through beginner into intermediate.
Thank you :)

Thanks David that was awesome. I haven't done yoga in sooooooooooo long, this was a perfect class to start up again. Great voice over and overall pace and progressions. This would be suitable for a beginner or begin-again student. ~ Cadenza (aka candice from koh phangan!)

I loved how easy to follow the voice instructions were! Always knew exactly what I was supposed to be doing without having to bend awkwardly to see the TV! Loved the sequence of poses! Thank you!

David, I LOVE your classes and am quickly working up to Advanced Beginner level. I find that most of the beginner level classes are not challenging enough, but I am not quite at the Intermediate level. It would be great to have more variation on this theme of challenging ourselves as beginners so we can continue our progress up to new levels. Perhaps having multiple levels of Beginner classes (say, 1-3) and multiple levels of Intermediate classes (1-3) could help us judge where we are and which classes to check out to help us take that next step up. Thank you for your site, this is a 1 gem!!!

This was just what I needed today! David's voice is very relaxing & easy to follow. The timing for how long the positions were held were perfect and not too challenging. My body feels wonderful! I will definitely be doing this video again!

This was exactly what I needed. After taking a looong break from yoga, I am still in good shape but lost much of my flexibility. I found the shoulder stretches particularly relieving. I feel like I just got a massage. So glad I found this site
