This felt amazing after a weekend of cross country skiing! It was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you!

After years of cycling my left hip and thigh had become soooo tight. I've been doing yoga for about a year and have tried all kinds of stretches with limited improvement. During this class I actually feel my hip releasing. I've repeated it several times and it keeps feeling better and better. Thank you, thank you, thank you.....Namaste

Really great... very calming and relaxing practice but at the same time some very intense stretches, at least if you're as tight in the hips as I am! Thanks :)

Thank you! Another great video - well instructed, calm and thorough. Really helped loosen legs after running, and the relaxation at the end was lovely. Bliss. I'm getting a bit addicted to this website....

This was just what I needed! I took one too many falls off of horse, landed on the right side, and my hips, especially my right, have been tight, which caused me pain in my lower back. This was great to get this feeling a lot better! Thank you :D

Thank you David for this great workout. While stretching was slightly intense, I need to admit, my legs feel amazing!
But more than that I loved the relaxation part. Suddenly I felt that my whole inner body image had changed - during shavasana I saw my rib cage, visualized upper and low spine, muscles... That was a discovery I never made before, so impressed.
