I'm unclear on the direction of stretch. Are we pushing the knee TOWARDS the torso, or AWAY from the torso and up into the hand? The 1st way I feel more stretch but David seems to be saying the second way. Thank you

To create the stretch you pull the knee towards you. To initiate PNF, you push the knee away from you before stretching once again. I hope that clarifies things. :-)

Nice stretch but, even with the volume turned up full, I found it very difficult to hear what David was saying.
