David, thank you. I've been working at home for the past two weeks during lock-down so I haven't had my usual office chair and my back is paying the price. This is just what I needed to loosen up those tight areas and give my back a treat.

I have been experiencing lower back pain as well as a tight hamstring. This class has been so healing for me. I have been coming back to it for over a week now. It is such a gentle cathartic experience. I started off with such intense pain where on a scale of 1 to 10 the pain was 11. Now my pain is down to 3. I love how calm David guides you through the flow and I feel as though I am in class right next to him. I also understand his instruction fully without having to see him. Graciously and sincerely I thank you for providing healing to me!

I have a back injury - this class was amazing to release the backs of my legs that get so stiff.

really enjoyed - thank you. I broke my right foot (lisfranc injury) 18 months ago and the same leg i had ACL surgery in my knee 15 years ago. My right side is often so stiff and i have started getting really aching pains early in the morning and slater my right side from neck to base of lower right back in ibuprofen gel and take ibuprofen. so i think this session really beneficial but i just have to be a bit careful with some of the moves as my right knee cant quite do now. If there are any specific exercises for either injury would be great. I also have achilles tendonitis in both feet/ankles and normally more painful and prounced in the left maybe as compensation for my right side not as good

What a wonderful class to come back to. Deep stretches needed for lower back and hips and this is perfect! In light of recent times, great to be less sedentary yet to slow down. Thank you from the UK!

I decided to come back to this class after many months because I had tightness in my lower back after a fast-paced vinyasa class. Really great way to stretch out the lower body. I feel so much better!
