It works gently but deeply into the hip joints, extremely needed in my case. The length and pace of the class are perfect. Hope to find such a class for the upper part of the body to release neck and shoulder tension.
Thank you so much,

Thank you for a beautiful class

Hello- I'm new to DYWM, and found you as I'd been searching for high-quality online yoga. The search became more urgent when I started experiencing hip and back pain. This class was perfect and I feel so much better. I happily signed up for an annual subscription. Many thanks for all that you do!

Thank you.

4 years ago I suddenly developed severe piriformis tendinitis. Your class "really" helps with the healing process. Thank you so much

I love this class!

This was the first class I did with DYWM and it's still my favorite go-to class. David's soothing voice makes into almost a moving meditation when you know the stretches from having done them many many times.

Much needed

This is one of my FAVORITE videos! I have an emotional release every time I do this. I hold a lot of tension and emotion in my hips and lower back, and David's soothing voice is perfect to help ease me through it all.
