I enjoyed this program. I have been having difficulty with Ashtanga series 1 seated poses and have found this incredible helpful
a black or half block ( under hip) might help us in-bendy people with the hurdler stretches. Well well done

This is by far one of the best yoga classes I've ever taken online. Thank you so much for sharing! Namaste.

This was like a secret intermediate practice. It seemed like it would be a beginner class but the stretches were intense and quite satisfying. Perfect warm up and a delicious corpse pose at the end. I especially loved doing some different poses that I don't encounter much. Plough was easier for me than it ever has been. My muscles were so prepared for it.

this was such a lovely practice, filled with gentle stretches that really allowed me to play with my edge. like others, i was surprised at how flexible and how much core strength i had by the end.
David's voice is calming and the instructions are precise; i especially appreciate this when i do a video frequently.
Thank you!

This was my first hatha class. I normally enjoy a vigorous vinyasa flow and being so new to yoga I decided to branch out and give this a try! I found myself in tears after this session, it was a HUGE emotional release for me. Thank you David and DYWM for these great videos!!

A lot of this sequence seemed to require strength and length I just didn't have for some pretty basic stretching. It would have been great to have some modifications for those of us whose arms will never wrap around our backs. I've liked most of the practices here, but this one just isn't for me.

I loved this class! I am a beginner, with very tight runner/cyclist hips, hamstrings, and shoulders. I was able to do this class with modifications. It definitely emphasized where I was tight. During one particular hip lift I wasn't even able to lift my hip off the floor! Had no idea I was so tight. All the postures felt *so good*.

I also especially enjoyed the music. I loved the syncopation at the beginning that encouraged me to get warm, followed by the slower music that allowed me to focus on the poses.

Very much appreciated the wakening tones at the very end; I'd totally fallen asleep. =)

Thank you very much.

Great class! I felt like a pretzel, but was able to complete all the poses. Good transition from beginner to intermediate. Thanks!
