Class Description: 

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.

New favorite class!

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. :-)
This video was filmed in Uplands Park. Glad to hear that you're benefiting from what we're doing!

Hi David,
ahhh, Uplands - love it too. And much quieter than BHP.
Just did this practice again, and had forgotten that it was my first - again awesome, 'simple', yet so much happening. You are a master in describing and guiding in perfect alignment. Makes me wonder what your Astro chart looks like? :-)
Big gratitude for creating and maintaining this community Yoga service and making it available to everyone everywhere! Just recommended it to a friend from the East Coast.
Namaste!

Truly grateful for such a simple yet effective way to quickly loosen and release hamstrings after a run, hike, bicycle ride, or even just to energize the entire body. Sometimes, our legs need extra special attention, they do so much for us. Nice work David! Sending the DYWM teachers good and healthy Qi! Hugs!

What an Incredible Teacher

This was my first class on DoYogaWithMe, and I immediately donated :)
Such a calming, yet challenging practice! I typically have terribly tight hamstrings and lower back, but I feel that lovely singing feeling in my muscles after this class. It would be wonderful to have a couple of poses added to address tightness in the lower back and ankles to supplement the effect on the hamstrings.
Thank you!

Hi David. THANK YOU! could
