as with many things in my life right now, I am having a hard time staying with a session each day. But when I get to it, it is encouraging and making more aware of the body. that is one of my goals. I am trying to do 2 seasons on my more focused days to catch up.

You get five stars, I only get 3 1/2 or 4. Creaky knees for this one, but I'm sure good for me.

I'm an advanced student always looking for ways to be kinder to my body - especially my poor joints - and chose this class to warm up and improve alignment. It's a little too beginner-level for new alignment techniques, but is a lovely warm up, and David's energy never fails to soothe the mind.

Thanks....really enjoying the challenge. I do find myself forgetting to breathe and an occasional reminder would be helpful for me as well

I really like the way you explain each posture and where you should feel it in the body.

The cues are good but I could use an occasional reminder to breathe. :-)

I enjoy the subtle awareness of habitually misalignments when we go through slowly and thoughtfully. Thanks for the reset.

I enjoyed the class. I'm really needing help right now with joints and their care and alignment, and this did help. It was a little confusing for me to get set up in my small space and I had to do a warrior's pose again since I hadn't understood it correctly the first time. All in all helpful and worth repeating to get it right. Thank you!

I loved the shoulder stretch with the chair. This is something I could and will do, at work.

I just found you a couple of weeks ago and you are changing my life. I love how precisely you explain form, without complicating it. That really helps me enjoy doing the poses. And so many routines to choose from! Your voice is calm and soothing, and the audio and video quality is perfect. Thank you, David! Happy New Year!

I have bad knees, so getting on the floor is going to be difficult. Have anything that works around that?
