Ron's imagery, description and unique transitions have helped him garner quite a following on DYWM, and this class is one of his best.

If it’s your first time on this class, keep your eyes peeled, as the direction is hard to follow with just your ears. It’s a lot of lovely and opening standing work, a little bit of heat will develop by the end.

It's been a long while since I did this class and I forgot how energizing it is. Now that I'm a little more stable in the balances it's even more rewarding. Thank you Ron, I will be back here soon.
Namaste

This is a great practice with nice interesting flows. A great way to start the day if you don't have time for a longer practice.

Ron's energy- grounding and creative- just makes me feel so damn good. I always want to hug Ron after class. A really loving, gentle rhythm that's perfect for the mornings.

4/12/21 Very nice - opening, flowing, gentle, and excellent cues/imagery to guide alignment. I've been a member of DYWM for years....how did I miss this class?!? Glad to have found it now, and glad to have an addition to my roster of short morning classes.

Ron your classes are "True" you touch on what so many are not in tune with.Its like trauma sensitive yoga these classes of yours, or even a tad on Feldenkrais! I feel my brain connected to my body after your classes! Thank you & Happy New Year 2021

I am an international teacher working in Santiago, Chile, where we are on full lockdown. No leaving the house without getting online to request government permission. This is week 11 of teaching online, and I have hit the wall. I was drinking too much, eating crap, not exercising, and basically wallowing in self pity UNTIL I discovered this video. I made a commitment to get up a little earlier every day to do this, and it has changed my life. I truly cannot thank you enough! It has brightened my whole approach to my day and lifted my spirits. I've been using this website for along time, and I love many of the teachers. But Ron? I am so so so thrilled to have found you!

I love your story! So honest! It's so important to keep the darkness at bay. We are all feeling this, I believe. I've been to Chile and the culture and people are so relational. This must be very hard. Blessings to you, my friend. May you continue to find peace.
Tenga un buen dia.

It’s billed for morning, but I’ve just done this sweet practice after a long, draining day at work and I feel suffused with breath and SO MUCH BETTER! Simple poses, lots of breath, this is a great pick-me-up. Thank you!

I'm usually partial to female yoga teachers, but I was looking for a shorter morning class, so I gave this a try. It was perfect! Sorry I almost overlooked you, Ron. Now I'm going to search for more classes by this awesome teacher!

Thank you very much for this class. I t has left me invigorated and with a feeling of openness.
The only but is that I would qualify this class more as a "gentle flow" thank hatha ioga. After all, most of it is devoted to movement combined with breath.

I love this class. It' s my go-to when I don't have an hour+ in the mornings. I can always spend about 23 mins. Thanks Ron!

Ron, great class! Short and sweet and clear. I can feel the energy moving wonderfully through my body after this class! I love the balances, the twists, and all of the backward bending to open up. Thank you so much for a great class!

I do non-yoga workouts and it leaves me quite sore the next day. This workout was perfect for that stiffness and also over all calming with the emphasis on the breathing. Thanks!

I only had about 20 mins this morning to "wake up and move" and this class was a perfect fit for my creaky bod. I have been doing yoga off and on for many years and discovered a few great new moves with this class (ex: chair cat/cow). Ron has a good flow. Also, I have NEVER been able to "hop forward", only awkwardly walk, but no one has ever told me to JUMP LIKE A FROG!! Wow! Genius. I was still not able to do it, but now I know how to practice! The 5 bucks monthly fee for this fabulous site is the best deal ever. THANKS DYWM!!
