wow, great practice yet again. Amazing how something as basic as mountain pose and warrior 1 and 2 really tax the body when going so slowly and making sure everything is in proper alignment. I wish I had this class years ago when I first started yoga, I would not have to unlearn all the bad habits now. Thanks so much! Can't wait for the next one!

very detailed and thorough. Was a bit slow for me, with little variation, however it is an excellent introduction for anyone just starting yoga, with all the information you need to get those foundation poses correct.

I appreciate the slow and detailed instructions of this class. Although, I too was left wanting a bit more.

It was good but left me wanting more. Another pose or two to add a bit of fun or energy would have been nice.

Great class David! I'm having a hard time with the subtle movements of lifting the knees and pushing the thighs back or inward...I'm not even sure what you said. :-) Can you pls help? TY
