I am grateful for this class David. I have done it before due to serious lower back pain and woke up the next day without pain. This is a really therapeutic class. Even though a beginner's class, the backward stretching of the arms was quite challenging for my shoulders, but I am extremely thankful for it. I feel so energized and calm.

Thank you David! This was

Another 5 star goodie!
So happy to having found and subscribed to DoYogaWithMe - just in time for the rain season here on the West Coast! Indoor hOMe Yoga is purrrfect for days like these, esp. when I feel a tickle in my nose... while virtually being in the Yoga forest or Camus field with you.
This one was such an aaawesome release, stretch, lower back & hip awareness and strength builder.
Love the gentle and clear and well paced instructions. Thank you David!

I was really happy to find this video because my back has been twitching and catching for the last few days. Guess I have been overdoing something! This class is excellent and I feel so much better. Definitely going in my bookmarks.

David, you are my guru and hero! Thanks again for your wonderful class. I've been moving road base after torrential rain rutted my driveway here in Oz, and again, I am so glad to have your classes always at my fingertips so I can release tension and prevent spasm, especially in the lower back. The subscription cost is so very reasonable!! I too wasn't sure about the exact position of the flannel, so I put it just above the sacrum across the top of the pelvis. Also I'm enjoying the morning kapalabhati breathing, and at 67 I'm going good!

Such fantastic release for my

Such fantastic release for my lower back pain. As I was watching, I was thinking how much more powerful this was for me than some treatments I have received. Thank you so much, David!!

Really clear instruction if you watch and listen, too. It really helped release a stiff back and hips after a long day of traveling. Thanks for this video!
