This was the perfect target area for me today and I was so happy to see it right on the main screen waiting for me. Great instruction and beautiful guided meditation afterwards.

He was very informative, talked through each stretch so I did not need to take my focus off of my stretch to see what he was doing. I have major lower back issues and stretches like this really help me get my day going with little to no pain. I am actually sitting on the floor after class with my back straight and no pain. Thank you.

This workout did feel great after a run! Wonderful way to wind down your tightening leg muscles. Also worked well for someone like me who has limited upper back mobility due to a surgery. This instructor is really easy to follow and encouraging.

Totally hit the spot to increase your flexibility after a run. I have tight low back and mildly tight hips so this was perfect!! Nice cool down after my run

This is the first time I did yoga at this site, and I will be back here and to this practice, my hips and lower back feel great and it was such a nice savasana.

I've been inactive for the better part of a year due to Cancer, and my lower body (especially) is one big, stiff knot. This class is amazing - I end each day with it now, and am already gaining my flexibility back after doing the session daily for a week. Truly amazing!

Thanks David!!!

I've been doing yoga lessons for a while, but I can't get to them every day so I was looking for some online instruction. This lesson was truly outstanding and I'll definately be returning to the site!

This video is what I need to regain some flexibility after straining my lower back about a year and a half ago. Since then I have felt a tightening in areas that were previously quite flexible. My strength training suffered as well, which just exacerbated the tightening.

This might very well be the thing I need to bring it back. I'll be practising this routine a lot in the coming weeks. Thank you!
