So challenging for me, yet I'm relaxed and peaceful after. So good

I don't think I've ever caught myself grinning so many times in a class before. Expertly guided. Gentle and progressive, but powerful and impactful. I really love how Ron seamlessly connects simple and familiar poses from the beginning of the class to more 'demanding' poses near the end. Really helpful prompts that help you get the most out of relatively simple poses. This makes for a very holistic and thorough class. Ron's sweet and compassionate guidance is most welcome. Ron- I love your style and I think we could be buds.

Woke up this morning not sure if I could (or wanted ) to do a yoga session. Thank you Ron for this beautiful practice that allowed me to slowly encourage my body and soul to become active. This was an incredible feeling of pleasure and encouragement. My outlook on the day ahead has changed completely. I will definitely return to this session often.

This class is pure gold. With Ron's classes you always have the feeling that you're getting something that goes way beyond yoga. There is so much beauty and compassion in the way he teaches, that time literally flies and one never fails to feel precious while practising. Thanks for offering classes with such a wise, beautiful human being.

My second time with this class and I loved it. Ron's style is playful and informative and I was surprised to get into a flipped d. dog, not sure what it's name is . . . wild thing? I recommend this class to anyone who would like their mood elevated. Thank you, James

Thanks Ron. This was excellent. I found I really needed to keep my eyes open and on the screen for this practice. I learned new ways to move from pose to pose in this practice. I loved the gentle approach to this practice.

Ohhhhh, the seaguls and the music and the gentle yet confident voice made this practice an unexpected heaven. Ron bring such a gentle way to strength. Thank you for bring us to the mat today and making just the right practice. I feel like this would be a perfect evening practice as well. Namaste.

Such a beautiful, healing, and *strengthening* practice. My soul needed nurturing and my body needed physical activity. This gave me both. I love the seagull cries. Brought a huge grin to my face. Namaste!

Absolutely love this class at the end of a work day sitting at my desk!

I responded to the idea of this class and started off feeling kind of lethargic (a rainy Sunday morning). Ron lets us feel that way and has a very gentle beginning. The class builds but not in a sudden way. By the end I felt that I had more energy, and learned some things I didn't know. Ron explained every step very well with great details and some humour. I really enjoyed this one and am sure I will take it again. Thank you! James

Wonderful class. I love Ron's voice, flow, explanations, everything. Went by really quickly. Gentle yet powerful!

I was feeling ill, sad and unable to function. This class put a smile on my face, eased my joints and let me back in to life. Thank you Ron......

Wonderful wonderful class, Ron!!!! This class allowed me to truly feel my body and soul! I love your words and visualizations! Thank you so much!!

September 10, 2019

This class is just what it says - gentle and powerful. Without really realising it, by the end of the class, you've done some really good stretching. I love the standing to sitting move! The mood of the class is supportive and fun too. Thanks Ron!

Wow -- the visualizations here really guided me to be present in both body and breath like never before for my at home "video
practice. Thanks for the artistry and the knowledge, Ron.

Ron’s imagery never fails to make me smile and lighten up as I practice: what a beautiful gift! The sequencing in this class was unexpected (for me), complete, and fun. Thank you.

This was such a delightful class! Once the video started, I actually remembered doing this class a couple of years ago, and it was just as wonderful this time. I felt kind of tired today, as I have done some intense strength training the past few days. I'm not really sore, but my muscles were feeling fatigued, so I wasn't sure what kind of energy I could bring to yoga today, but I knew I wanted to practice.
This class was just perfect for me today, and I feel refreshed now, with a sense of more energy, and my joints and muscles feel lengthened and more flexible than before.
Thank you!

Amazing class. I was feeling so tired, but now i feel so refreshed and energized.

I came into this feeling like a stone, now I feel like a human being, thank you! Ron's little 'clicks' give me ASMR tingles. 30 days no alcohol, here we go.

Lovely class as a start to the challenge. Couldn't manage it all but i think that's how it should be!

July 10, 2019

A beautiful class. I was feeling lazy, but I'm so glad I jumped in on this one. Ron's voice and direction are soothing and calm. But don't be fooled-there is work and sweat in this class. :) I feel SO much better. Thank you, Ron. :)

I was so sore and tired such a beautiful help thank you so much !!

March 1, 2019

Thanks Ron, After a 2 week bout of vertigo, I needed a practice that was slow and allowed plenty of time for adapting to each position. This was perfect. After 2 weeks of not moving my eyes or head much, really wasn't sure how to get back into yoga. Was so excited to be able to do a cautious warrior 3. Thanks

What a fabulous class. The imagery and instruction was perfect.
Relaxing, challenging and meditative.

Thank you Ron

Thank you, Ron, for a fabulous practice. Just the perfect mix of speed and stillness.

December 27, 2018

Fabulous thank you. A longer savasana, at least 10mins would be great. Otherwise fabulous class.

August 25, 2018

Lovely class. Some surprising and amazing transitions. The gulls were a lovely add. Thank you!

August 9, 2018

I was grouchy and tired, but I knew I would find a class here to help me let it all go and show me how to find my center again, and this class sure did it. Thank you Ron!

June 6, 2018

Beautiful moving meditation! Thank you, Ron.

April 22, 2018

Thank you, true to your promise my lethargy and negativity shifted to one of peace and mindful energy. Awesome class.

March 20, 2018

This sounded like a great mix for a class but I found myself looking at the screen regularly (which I never do) as the instruction is patchy - sometimes for example talking about straightening a leg but missing out that you should also be lifting it.
I picked this class particularly as I wanted something that built up the intensity but ended up switching to a different class as it didn’t feel safe on the neck to have to look over as frequently as I did in this one.

I really like this class and teacher! Thank you :)

This stretch-and-guidance-heavy class is exactly what I need when I have difficulty motivating myself to come to the mat. After doing the class once with my eyes open, I was able to do the entire class the next time with my eyes closed. I found Ron's conversational style a calming substitute for the everyday chatter of my thoughts. It was a transcendent experience.

Wonderful! Just what I needed today - didn't even know I did, just followed the call to 'do a class with Ron'.
My body-mind-spirit just loved the flow and gentleness, the 'unpredictable' yet very aware, intentional, and well-guided dance through the movements. And the Yoga Medicine today, of starting really gently from the ground-UP.
Bookmarked to revisit.
I'd love to see more of Ron's classes here at DYWM, maybe explicitly a Yoga practice with Dance elements!

I thought this sequencing and way of presenting the poses from the mat upwards was really unique and interesting. And a lot of the way Ron brings the student into poses I found really insightful and his directives helped me understand deeper aspects of the pose -- like coming into Warrior 3 through a sense of a standing Cobra -- super cool! Thank you!

Great flow. Feels chatty at times and there is a strange clicking noise Ron makes with his mouth that I find jarring; tthis along with the birds is distracting.

October 30, 2017

There were about 3 vinyasas in this class, so maybe slow flow vinyasa or power yoga would be a better label for this?

Anyway, what a fantastic class. Thanks Ron and video team!
July 23, 2017

That was sincerely the most thorough restful fun yoga practice I've ever had. Thank you ;-)

June 9, 2017

Really - after a stressful work week, to follow this class was, as Ron says, 'delicious'. Thank you.

May 8, 2017

Thank you Ron! I came in to this practice feeling physically weak and exhausted and mentally frazzled. I am leaving it feeling physically strong and mentally clear. Thank you!
