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

Your website is amazing, I so appreciate the work you all put into it! The beginner classes are so great because the instructors keep reminding you to pay attention to the small things (like chin in, core stable, relaxed shoulders etc ) that make such a difference.

I'm a newbie and love that I don't always have to look at the screen to see what you're doing because you give such good verbal instruction of where my body should be positioned. Thank you!

I really love that David constantly reminds me of the proper posture. It keeps me on track and feeling stronger.

I consider myself advanced beginner - I can do a lot of the intermediate poses but appreciate going back to the basics. I really enjoy your detailed instructions - almost as if you are doing hands-on adjustments.

Thank you for those little instructions (like flexing toes, bringing elbows together, brings thighs together, etc.), which is helping me create openness that I never knew existed (and I have done yoga for some years now).

Holy crow David! I think the last time my body was twisted like that was about 1964 in junior high wrestling. (Just before I got pinned.) Brought back memories...
