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.



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!

New space in hips, hamstrings, low back and upper back.

I feel a new space in my hips, hamstrings, and low back. And I had a great upper back stretch around the sorest parts of my shoulder blades. Very therapeutic session that felt much shorter than 47 minutes. The narrative was easy to follow without constant watching, and the guide to let the muscle go helped so much to feel the stretch deeper. Thank you!

I pushed too hard yesterday

I pushed too hard yesterday on a run/strength session in the park, and was hobbling about last night and this morning. I feel brand new with this gentle but deep class! I still have a bit of stiffness, but the difference is night and day. This is a go-to for sure!
