Class Description: 

This class is slow, gentle and offers a deep opening for the muscles around the hips, lower back and legs. Its pace alone allows you to sink into a beautiful state of calm. Add the beautiful sounds of Craig Paterson, master musician, and you will be lulled into a deep, lovely, relaxed state.

This was a great class to help my aching muscles after several days of getting back into running after a long hiatus. This class targeted all the right muscles and I am feeling so much better having completed the class, ready to get back out on the trails tomorrow.

sacroiliac joint pain?

I hoped this video would help with some pain I've been having in my lower back (sacroiliac joint). This didn't quite do it for me in that area, but my legs and hips felt AMAZING. I will be coming back to this video for sure. If you are having general muscle pain in your lower back I can see this being helpful as well.

Great video!

I was so sore after training hard (running and cycling) all week. I kept trying to stretch out and it wasn't quite doing the job. I found this video and it was the relief I needed! My hips and thighs and lower back all feel much better, and I felt so relaxed and refreshed at the end. Thank you David! It was just what I needed!

The release I feel right now after doing this class is slightly frightening. I. Feel. Sooooo. Good.

I needed this after a long, hot jog on hilly, uneven pavement. I followed it up with some nice forward folds to take advantage of my open/relaxed lower back and hips. Then I gave my feet and calves a nice gentle massage on my mat. :)

perfect, gentle but deep hips and leg session

My hips and legs loved this session. I am on the mend after bad pelvic problems during pregnancy and from carrying my now 9 month old very heavy baby around! I loved how safe and gentle the movements were. Thank you:)

Love, love, love this one.

Love, love, love this one. It reached muscles (laborum) which are not touched in most traditional stretching routines yet are so crucial for my particular body needs. Thank you!

A wonderful class focused on the hamstrings...

Great voice quality and great pace. I do wish there was an acknowledgement (and then time factored in) for those of us who are using a block or cushion for some or many of the seated poses. Nonetheless, an excellent program that I plan on doing again and again! Thanks for offering it!
