Tight hamstrings can cause all kinds of problems, such as lower back pain, neck pain and muscle cramps, as well as limit the range of motion in your hips and knees. Releasing your hamstrings can improve the efficiency of your running or cycling, improve recovery from workouts, increase circulation to your feet and make your legs feel much better. This class is good for all kinds of reasons, for all kinds of people.

Thank you!

I have always had lower back issues. Yoga helps to keep me feeling pretty good but after doing this class for the first time I felt like I was finally addressing the root of the issue. I just did it for the second time and my back already feels so much looser and less compressed than it has in a very long time. I think I need to do this daily for awhile. Thanks so much for a great class!

Whats next?

I loved the way I felt in my legs after this class. I realized I needed a class for my lower back immediately after. Which would be recommended?

Great find

This was tough, because my hamstrings are so tight. But I tried to take it easy. I can see how will become easier, quickly. And that will be clear progress! Great class!

Great class thank you!

With plates and pins in my left ankle, the rest of my leg and hip are chronically tight. I think this focused class will be the next step to really strengthening and lenthening all those tired, deeply tight muscles.
Thank you!

Thank you!

This was my first DoYogaWithMe class...
Thank you, David!
Loved the precision :-) , the calm, clear instruction, just the right challenge, the setting outdoors on a beautiful summery evening (could it be Beacon Hill Park Rocks?), the whole calm, spacious, and stretchy scene. The crows too.
Will do more online classes now, esp. in the rain & storm season!
And when I travel again, the teachers and outdoor settings will remind me of Home sweet Island!
Namaste!

Thanks!

Hi, Melanie. Thanks for the feedback! Such a generous description. :-)
