Fantastic class

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.

Love it!

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 :)

What every athlete or active person needs!

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!

Glute engagement?
Amygatzemeyer 9 months ago

This was an excellent class that really spoke to me- I was able to relax my mind and body and feel great. I was especially drawn to the cue ‘engage your glutes’. It made me realize I don’t typically engage my glutes in lunge. In other sports (running, weight lifting, etc.), I discovered that the emphasis to NOT engage glutes in cobra and septu Banda has made me focus on not engaging glutes and in the long run and lead to some back pain and incorrect form. Do you have a good resource to look through about when to engage glutes in yoga? Thank you!

Heaven indeed!

Niggling tight psoas brought me back to this video and I had forgotten just how wonderful it is! What a lovely relief! Thank you David!

hope the neighbours didn't hear me moaning!

I got a new car that really messed up my hip flexors after driving it for 2 months I felt sooooo tight and tender in psoas even just walking. This hit the area like nothing else....the car is going and this class 2-3 times for a few weeks should have me back on track
