If you're having issues with the player:

This gentle, slow, hatha yoga class guides you into a series of poses that thoroughly stretch the muscles around the shoulders and neck. It moves gradually toward deeper stretches, allowing the body to warm up and prepare for a deeper release of the tighter muscles in your body. Your neck and shoulders will feel wonderful after you're done.

Equipment: Strap
Style: Hatha Yoga

This class was excellent. I was very stiff at the beginning of the class, sometimes I get frustrated with myself if I don't do it "right", but your gentle style is so calming and unhurried that I felt great during the class and even better after! Thank you.

When I did one of your older shoulder lessons, wow what a lesson - it released tightness in my shoulders that I had been working on for a fair while. So I knew that I was in for another treat. As always, your lessons are amazing. Instructions are always spot on and the pace perfect. Thank you.

Love this class. I have repeated it many times and tell all my friends to do this class. I always feel lots of relief through my upper body afterwards. This one and "deep release for the low back, hips and legs" are my two favourite when I am feeling tight and sore from sports and work.

This is exactly what I needed, thank you. I am recovering from a two-day migraine and had a lot of tension in my neck and shoulders. These stretches with your calm and thoughtful guidance made all the difference. Namaste.

Thank you for the class David! Maybe it is because you are male, but sometimes I find that you use the descriptive words in a way that makes me subconciously overdo things. For example when you say push or squeeze extensively I find myself doing it to an extent that I normally wouldn't. I enjoyed this class though, maybe it's just because I am not used to it.

Yeah, I get that. I think about the words I use a lot - a bit obsessively, in fact. I often want to encourage people to put lots of effort into an action, but I do my best to encourage soften withing the action as well. It can be tricky and sometimes I could express it better. Thanks for the feedback.
