I broke my ankle about 9 months ago, plus I've had hip flexor issues for a few years now. This class really helped loosen up some tight areas. Thanks David.

My right psoas is SUPER tight, and this class really helped to stretch to it. I spent a little bit of extra time in each pose that stretched out the right side. Definitely going to be doing this one regularly! Thanks David!

Great class! I have been doing a lot of the beginner classes, but this was a nice transition to an intermediate class; not too difficult, but definitely more work and took more concentration!

Thank you. I have lordosis and I run steps out a lot. This class was wonderfully paced, gently taught but challenging in all the ways necessary to get my hip flexors stretched out. Thanks for the important reminders about engaging the gluts - boy does that make a difference. Thank you for all you do. I have benefited enormously from the classes on this site and told many people about it!

Thank you David! This class was such a wonderful help for my never ending hip tightness. I felt such relief at the end of a long workday doing this class.

This was a great find! I'm a weighlifter so nothing beats yoga to sort out all of my tight spots! And this area is particularly easy to tighten up and for me is very prone to injury if I don't stay on top of my mobility! Thanks!

I have had a glute injury for nearly 6 months and it hasn't been getting better. Physio, injection and not running hasn't helped. I've been doing this class every morning this week and my glute and hips feel amazing! I'm now excited about getting back to running but also continuing with these yoga classes. Thank-you!

Hi David, I enjoyed both mentally and physically your class. Thank you for the clear guidance and slow pace.
I have a question regarding tight hips. Is it possible to have naturally tight hips and there is no much one can do to open them and become more flexible? I have been trying to open mine for the past 3 years and I feel that they are still very tight.
