Thank you so much for taking the time to create this excellent practice. I've been suffering with back, hip, and leg pain for years now. This series offered some relief, and I will repeat it regularly. Your instruction is excellent, and the wandering geese made me smile. Beautiful!

...and it made me want more, more and more. David is truly a great instructor, very easy to follow, and I appreciate the pace.

I'm very stiff, especially in my lower back, hips and hamstrings, so this class will definitely be one of my weekly ones. I loved that the Savasana part was so long, I managed to relax completely and was really in deep a meditative state there for a bit. My gosh, how good it felt!

Afterwards I felt so in peace, yet awake and focused. This site is really all I can ask for. Thank you x1000!

Thank you very much for sharing this class. It makes you feel so limber and relaxed every time. Also I noticed at 41:50 you made a tiny friend in savasana :)

After a weekend of rock climbing I was looking for a deep stretch for my hamstrings and hips and I definitely found it with this video. I will be doing this one again!! Thank you for a wonderful practice.

Training for a race post baby and my hips are killing me. This was a phenomenal find and I plan to do it post run every time because my legs felt like butter afterward. Had to share it with all my teammates. What a find!

I have a sports injury that started in my back, shoulders and moved down into my hips and causes me severe knee pain. My body is taking its' sweet time to recover from the trauma of the impact falling off my bike about 6 weeks ago. I called a friend to ask for advise about IMS and other options. She recommended your site, specifically this video. I did it last night and slept without pain and again this morning. I can't believe the relief I feel already!

I can't wait to try a few other video's now.
