If you're having issues with the player:

This is the second in a 2-part series designed to move you into marichyasana I or A. Following on from what you learned in Marichyasana I: Strength and Stretch, this is a thorough, full-length hatha yoga class that will release the key muscle groups that need to be stretched in order to move into this wonderful, seated arm bind. The hamstrings, shoulders, back and hips are major areas of focus, as is a gentle, careful approach.

Equipment: Strap, Block
Style: Hatha Yoga

Hi David,
I have pretty thight shoulders since my chilhood, many decades ago. I am practicing yoga since 16 years, notably to work this issue and I can tell you that when it comes to shoulders, you're my man !
I am so grateful I found you !! Thank you sooooo much. DL

The video keeps stopping. I've had this problem a number of times with different videos. It happens on this site but no problems Netflix etc. Perhaps you need to improve something on your end.

I have never been disappointed with any of the content, I am so gratefull for how David manages to share humanity and eneergy even thru a computer screen, during this difficult time this program is something I look forward to and starts my day reminding me that I am not alone. I look forward to many improvements in my spirit and flexibility with the group of teaches and being consistent.

Just getting back to yoga after several years off due to injuries and surgeries. I’m surprised how flexible I still am, but oh...what a workout!

Awesome guide into the full pose! Can't quite get it without the strap right now but going to add this class to my weekly routine and eventually I'm sure I'll get it!

Wonderful class. Stretching it and twisting is the greatest relief. More slower /long yoga sessions, please. Thank you

David is so great at explanation and giving options as he works through this practice. It is a truly wonderful experience by the time you get to the peak pose. I felt completely relaxed and could definitely feel my spine and shoulders were less tense. This is a great practice for a day you don't want a vigorous practice.

Thank you David. Have been doing this for a while but after this class it’s by far easier to bind. Could you please post a class on marichyasana D. That would be great. Namaste

Thank you very much for this great class, David! I can reach the peak pose, but canˋt keep my back straight in the final pose. Should I keep more attention to the straight back and or is it ok??
Thanks in advance for the advice!
