Thanks David. I’ve been just doing restorative yoga for the past couple of months due to an injury and I thought I would come back to Alignment once more. I love how the block between my legs gives me this alignment and strength. Looking forward to completing this 7-day challenge.

I ca n finally sit comfortably in staff pose thanks to the cueing. And, as someone else said in an earlier comment, the camel pose felt good with the cueing whereas before it hurt. Thanks David!

I did this last night and I can feel it in my body this morning - my body is settling in to a good posture much more easily. I will be coming back to this regularly. Thank you David!

Monday. A great kickstart to the week when I was too tired to decide which beginner class to start up again. Saw your email for a 7-day hatha yoga class. Just what I needed. Blood is pumping. Feel invigorated yet calm now. Thank you.

This class and the "Maintain alignment in standing poses" are two excellent go to's when I've not been as consistent with my practice for a few weeks. Coming back to these two fundamental classes always bring my body into alignment and subsequent practices feel much more grounded with intention. Thank you all for this resource, it has truly been instrumental in my yoga journey at home at such great value. Namaste!

Have had hip surgery few years ago for shredding ligaments, torn labrum etc. I need to get stronger, its just not the same. I took this just thinking ‘alignment’ in general for my back, but wanted to tell you this class is amazing for my hips and getting them straight. I get so frustrated cuz i want things like they were and get impatient, but i hung in there and this will really help me. I stayed at my edge without jamming anything, I think the props really helped, Just wanted to let you know.

I did the Senior challenge last month. My first yoga ever. Enjoyed it, but found a lot a little too low key. Decided to try this one . I was away first half of Feb. so just now getting to start. Wow! Big step from Senior Challenge, but if this first class was indicative, it will kick my b*tt, but be very good for me. I will keep revisiting the arthritis exercises in Senior for hands and feet though. Love those and they are great for keeping pain at bay and helping keep me flexible .

So glad I did the one year subscription, even though I am new to yoga. It gave me the incentive to keep it up at the beginning and now I am loving these classes. Love David. : )
