I did this evening class in the morning as part of the beginner-to-inter. program. Always enjoy David's pace. The binds are getting there but it will be a while before I can connect my fingers.

Nice delivery, clear instructions. In my view, not recommended for people with tricky knees. I just couldn't safely do some of the floor work, though I don't have trouble with most other yoga poses.

A very enjoyable class with some great twists and hamstring stretches. David's voice is slow and sure and his cues keep coming without a pause which I liked. It did seem like a good evening class but could be any time.

My one quibble was the music which was loud compared to David's voice and also distracting since it didn't match any of our movements. It would be great if you could have a no music option.

The class though is excellent and I recommend it.

Thank you,

James

I loved the challenge, tempo, organization, flow and music of this class. Thank you.

Hi david
I thought this class was really hard even at an intermediate level. Having easier options to do to work your way towards the more in depth poses, I had to stop and miss them all out and just stretch. I loved the warm up though. Thank you.

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.
