This was a new class for me (but older I think). I really enjoyed the pace, some poses were easy and some harder, but Ron lets us decide how far to go. Thanks, I would love to see more classes from this instructor.

Expansive, mindful, gorgeous class. Just what my sore body needed on a day after strength training. Namaste.

Loved working with Ron. His calm manner and creative movements, some clearly arising from his dance background, made for a lovely start to the day. I'll be looking for more of his classes! Thank you, Ron.

I absolutely loved this class from beginning to end. The calming voice of Ron, the music, the smooth flow, the strength felt in the poses and the visualization throughout. I feel like I have spent a day at the spa being pampered. Thank you for the beautiful class which I found thought the Energize Your Body and Mind Program of DYWM.

Beautiful practice. Did I detect some Qui Gong movements? Whether intentional or not, it really added to the calming energy!

Hi sigras, thank you for commenting!
In the course of my career in dance there has been many trainings and practices including Qi Gong .
My hope/ intention is that I am dialing into all that knowledge and bringing it forward to create classes that reach people on many levels. I love that you felt Qi Gong and calming energy!

I did this after a long stressful day of sitting in a car. It was perfect for getting all of that icky tension out. Thank you for such a carefree, non-judgmental class that really help my joints to feel more supple.

Wonderful Yoga Sailing with Ron! Loved the fluidity and imagery! My body-mind-spirit feels light and free, just like a sailboat :-)
Yes, also hoping and voting for more of Ron's classes!

I loved this class, and it helped me work though some dark feelings into a place of greater peace. Ron has a poetic approach to his practice. The descriptions and images that he uses are vivid and centering. I know I will return to this class again.

I loved imagining my spine as a mast and body as a sail! The slow pace and connection of body and breath was perfect for my practice today.

I am so hoping you will give us more of Ron's videos ..I keep checking back and I do love several of your videos you are all wonderful for giving your time and doing this …but for my husband and I together when we have time and want to do a video class? We both always go to Ron ..his classes are such depth and it is like a physical story unraveling! they are good long videos and we both like that as well ..I certainly would purchase a collection of his videos perhaps a package of his offerings? thanks so much again you are all wonderful but we all find our island in the storm and Ron clicked with us on video

Ron, the intention and visualizations in this class are great. I enjoyed movement and buoyancy that I've never experienced before!

But I really got lost a number of times on what was happening (practically speaking). Like, where I was supposed to face on the mat and what your suggested movements were for my arms. I would love it if you could re-record this with more specific instructions for this. It was substantially less easy to follow compared to other DYWM classes, and I think it could be improved a lot with this small change.

Hi, there.

This is David, DoYogaWithMe's founder. I'll respond for Ron, since I filmed this with him.

Ron's style is that he comes from a dancer/performer background. Because of this, he has a spontaneous style that flows in ways that are unique in the yoga world, but can also make it a little more challenging to follow. So, with most of his classes, it's best to do them a few times until you have an intuitive feel for the sequencing. Then the class becomes more of a dance for you, as well.

I hope that helps.

Take care,

David
DoYogaWithMe Founder

I also felt a little bit lost going through this as well. In yoga, we're used to very specific instructions to align our bodies perfectly. Having done one of Ron's other classes here before, I already knew that I was going to need to glance at the screen to see what he was doing several times on my first time through, and that if I got lost it's just fine to do my own thing before coming back. I enjoy the flowing style - it's a change of pace. I do agree that instructions can be unclear in Ron's videos, though, since spatial cues aren't used as often.

Loved this, didn't want it to end...the sail/mast pose after the headstand was incredibly centering and calming, I could actually see the sails on calm waters. Beautiful.
Grazie

I really like the metaphor of the sail working with the breath. This class is very enjoyable, slightly challenging in parts, but mostly relaxing and flowing. Thanks!

I love this class. I don't find it "power yoga" in the usual sense although I felt "powerful". There is plenty of time to breathe and a great sense of playfulness. I particularly like the frequent flowing arm movements (keeps shoulders nice and relaxed, which helps with my neck/shoulder issues). Ron also suggests alternatives and I felt I could really do my own thing and just enjoy myself. Best of all, Ron doesn't rush shivasana.

I have done all of Ron's classes this week and I adore his style. I find that his imagery just frees me up from worrying about balancing. I then find I am balancing so well I could fly!

This is a beautiful class, full of imagery that helped me expand and really connect with my breath. I loved Ron's instructions, felt light and fluid as I moved through the asanas. Almost felt like a dancer - that's a talent I've always wanted to have. Namaste!

This was an amazing practice that made me feel and connect to the winds (breath) of my body in a completely new way. The imagery of a sail was beautiful and very effective in helping me to truly feel the union of my breath and movement. Thank you Ron!
