I've been doing your classes for around 1.5 years now as a complete beginner to yoga, and attempted this class before reading the comments and not realizing it was an Intermediate II class. (I was looking to progress a little more and had saved it as a class to attempt!) . Even though I could only do about 1/3 of the positions, I'm glad I gave it a go because I enjoyed the the sequence and just stayed in whatever part of a position I could, noticing where I was limited in my body. It reminded me that I should revist your marichyasana I and II because I think they will probably help. I remember that I tried those classes quite a few times and each time noticed an increase in my flexibility. Thank you for providing these wonderful classes. I really appreciate the care that goes into making them available to beginners such as myself.

This is one of my favorite classes; there is something in it for everybody! I do find some of the binds difficult; I just use a strap. Thank you David for this class!

I agree with the precedent comments saying it should be considered an intermediate II or even intermediate III class. I've been practising yoga for 6 years or so and I usually can integrate binds in my practice but it wasn't really available to me here. I think the pacing was a bit quick to get in and out of poses that can be difficult to achieve. In your other videos you usually offer different options for a pose, offering to use the help of a strap for example, and that would make this class more accessible. I've also had some knee pain in the poses where we put our foot next to the hip for a long time, but that's something I struggle with in other classes as well (and I should look into it because I may not be doing it correctly, since in Hero pose I don't have pain in my knee).

Thanks! I've moved it up to Intermediate II for now. I appreciate the feedback.

In reference to the last comment... I would say it's harder than I expected in the beginner transitioning to intermediate program. Having done about 2 yrs of beginners consistently I have learned a lot of the tricks to working into harder poses... maybe recommend a strap with this one? But some of the binds (I am an extremely inflexible human) I just had to skip for now, didn't see any way to work into them.

Thank you for classes and for curating programs.

Yes exactly what is said here! I wasn't able to articulate it as well.

Ok, thanks. It's great to have your comment here in case others feel they need to choose a different class for that program. I thought it might work considering it was shortly after a challenging class with Fiji.

Hi david, this didn't feel like an intermediate I class. Is there an easier version with the same poses that can be made so that we can eventually get into the advanced level twists here?

I thought it was more difficult than Intermediate I, specially because there weren't variations to simplify it for people who couldn't reach the fullest expressions of the poses (as shown by you!). I really liked the poses themselves but was wondering if there is a way to build upto them.
