Thank you, David, this is lovely...especially for those of us who are now telecommuting and consequently sitting more than we would like. It's a treat to have an intermediate-level class. Your hip openers are my favorites!

I loved this class. I had never done the one leg bent, one leg forward stretch before. I am new to DYWM and really appreciated seeing the ocean behind and hearing the waves. I also like David's calm voice and how clearly he describes the movements. In this one he instructs "live" as he goes through the poses which I liked.

I do a lot of weight lifting so this is a great practice in between workouts. You will feel a lot of new sensations which is a wonderful surprise from a lot of practices.

This class was perfect - just what I needed for underactive glutes and tight hip flexors. David's attention to detail made all the poses really meaningful and effective. I'd love to see more Intermediate classes from David - he encourages you to stretch your limits while keeping your body safe.

Completely agree! I chose this class because of your comments here. :) My left glute and leg were tingling all day. This gave me the stretch I needed. I, too, would like to see more Intermediate classes from David. I enjoy the intent, meaning and instruction with each stretch.

Wow, this really helped to create space in my hip flexors, one of my favourites for sure. Thankyou David!

This for me is definitely one of your best classes David...so appreciated for a mind/body carrying a history of intense athletic performance and injury. Thanks for all you do :)

This class does wonders for me every time I do it, and I do it pretty often. Most of my workouts consist of running, weight lifting, and free weight exercises, as well as some cycling and hiking here and there. I also walk 2-3 miles a day just going from class to class at my university. This class is PERFECT for loosening me up, even when I don't think I need it. So refreshing, so relaxing, and the feel-good feelings stick with you for hours if not days afterward!
