This has helped me improve the subtle movements that really make these poses work.

Great class, and one I'll return to, its so easy to do/copy poses without focusing on how the body should be positioned (and how that feels) for maximum benefit

Really helpful in getting the full benefit of each pose - finding a sense of personal balance and stretch as you work through the postures. Thank you David.

Another great class, feeling ready to get on with my day.

Fantastic. I have been doing Yoga for a wee while and it is great to get back to basics and remind me, and my body, the correct way to move into the different shapes.

I've done yesterday and todays yoga practices now and the one for sure positive thing I've noticed, that is mention at the end of this video, is the constant stability. I am a tall man and most things in the world are not catered to my size, but I have already been more aware of that. My body has been letting me know when it is not in a stable position (i.e. standing over the sink) and it has made it much easier to figure out how to stabilize myself because of these last two practices (i.e. tilting the pelvis to make my spine straight). Thanks again, David!
