Such a nicely paced class! Josh gives rests at the exact right times. I really like his affirmations and his voice is super soothing.

I agree with all the previous comments. This is a wonderful practice and Josh is a fantastic teacher. Can't wait to do more of his classes.

What a fun well thought out class. I had so much fun trying to do the peak pose at the end and actually managed to do it until I fell on my face...haha! Had me laughing out loud, thank you Josh!

The peak pose was beyond the limits of my tight hips but I enjoyed the deep opening for the hamstrings and the core work leading up to it. Josh's calm and encouraging delivery make the challenging poses feel accessible. Thank you!

I know that yoga is not about the pose,however I was so surprised and happy of being able to go all the way through the eight steps!

Fun class, I like how Josh built the sequences to lead us to the Piece de Resistance.
More from Josh would be great!

Looking forward to trying out other classes with him.

Thanks a lot Josh!

Awesome class, thank you so much Josh! I love the way this is accessible on many levels, and his voice is so calming that he almost gets the tricky poses in by stealth :-) I managed to do the peak pose on both sides for the first time, whoo! (previously been better on my right side than left for some reason...) . Still can't do flying pigeon though so will have to keep coming back to this class to practice it!

Superb class, so creative and beautifully balanced, perfect pace. Bookmarked! My husband (beginner) and I (intermediate) both love Josh's teaching. Great addition to the team.

Dear Josh - when you joined the DYWM team, I didn't think we'd be spending time together because I assumed you'd mostly do hatha yoga - goes to show I shouldn't assume. I'm happy I was wrong, and you're versatile! I so enjoyed this class and your teaching. ^_^ I look forward to being your student. Thank you very much!
