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

Thank you for such a nice stretching, good poses and a relaxing shavasana class. I have been healing an injured SI joint since Jan of 2013 and little by little getting back into full yoga classes. This was perfect! Thanks for this wonderful website with so many wonderful classes to choose from.

I love the sun salutations in this video. Perfect level for me since I have some yoga skills, but health issues forced me out for a few years. This was a perfect video to get the blood flowing and do some great stretches, too.

thanks David....i love your class!! I am a complete beginner who has been doing yoga at home for 2 - 3 months now, your video pushed me a little, made me proud of where i am, and thankful for this website.

With your help im praying my physical ailments along with the stress of everyday, get less and less. i have massive muscle spasms in my upper shoulders and neck, feels as if my shoulders are always way past my ears and rigid as heck.

A new work in progress....Namaste
