Ron, loving your positive energy and good vibes! Great lesson for lengthening the spine and letting go of tension in the hips. Namaste.

Wonderful practice. I really enjoy the analogies, visuals and unique names for everything that Ron offers, like, "rainbow bridge" for the cervical curve and the driftwood being like the "bones of the Earth". I loved working with the hip and hamstring openers from a neutral spine and the lower, bent leg opening opposite as a counter balance to keep everything in the center very stable. Ron, you are amazing! Thank you. Namaste.

Ron seems to be really enjoying himself with this class and that made me enjoy it all the more too. I feel like it did my spine a lot of good to move like this. Thank you!

I have a deep appreciation for this class. When I started doing yoga many moons ago, I used to always try to keep my whole back on the mat. It wasn’t until a yoga teacher corrected me it. It changed my practice and reduced my back pain. Alway great to reconnect with your neutral spine! Thanks Ron!

My body thanks you!! I have a tendency to go go go, and this class made me slow down and truly feel my body! Thanks, Ron, for another wonderful class!!

I usually love Rons classes but a couple of issues here, first of all the sound is too low and then I do not see this as a beginners set since it requires a lot of body awareness. If I did this set as a beginner I might not continue with yoga at all. Also Ron talked too much, especially in the beginning .
