A wonderful class to return to again and again. After the intense stretches of the left leg, it is remarkable how different the legs feel, one like a narrow reed and the right like a bulbous trunk. Then after the right leg stretches, all is well.

Thank you David, I was able to go that little bit deeper in breath, twists and length of holds today. I had a striking white sensation of heat through the final twists along my IT band. I was able to hold in this zone for just a little longer and it was intensely satisfying, deep and penetrating sensation I have backed out of before. Is this the kind of thing that I can expect as I become more adept and rhythmic with my yoga practice? Perhaps, it is. I wonder what toxins will be released today! Thanks again. Peace.

Great exercise for someone who's hips and lower back maintenance practice has slipped into non-existence. I will be doing this practice a few times. Thx David.

I just had to comment cause I did this class twice today! I hurt my lower back yesterday and this class feels so healing to me. Love the shivasana at the end. Brilliant, thank you!

Great practice David. I have done this one before but it's great to see it again in this Beginner-Progressing-to-Inter. Program that I am doing.
