Dear Ron,

I want to send you tons of gratitude for today's practice!!!

I had rotator cuff surgery (unrelated to yoga) 6 months ago so that I could get back into my yoga practice pain free. After surgery and 5 months of PT (which I enjoyed), I am finally released to come back to my yoga.

Getting back into it feels amazing. My body remembers so much about the internal strength (I need to redevelop), poses and stretching into them slowly. BUT, this practice today, really helped me focus with just my body on the yoga you guided us through. It was one of the most amazing experiences and joyful EVER and I think my favorite yoga class of all time!!!! Blind yoga helps you see more than any other class I have done. Turning on that inner eye is the key and this class helped me really do that!!!

Your directions were wonderful to follow even with my eyes closed because I had to use that inner focus and trust my body, what it remembers and moving slowly to re-build my strength.

I will be repeating this over and over. I strongly recommend it (for all practitioners and especially if you have had a similar surgery and are cleared) and I THANK YOU!!!!!

By the way, your classes always help me focus on keeping my chest open and my shoulder blades closed. I really need that right now and think it will help anyone maintain a strong upper body and posture (hopefully, helping prevent future shoulder issues for myself and all yogis).

Thank you for helping me make my last sixth months worth it!!! You are the best!

Your classes are always fun and playful! I tried keeping my eyes close, but peeked once or twice. I'll try it next time with a blindfold. Thank you! xo

As always, a great practice. This was my first class of 2020 after a two week vacation and I really needed it! I am looking forward to more from Ron. Thank you.

What a fascinating and different practice. I loved trying to do the whole practice with my eyes closed. It was great to go inside! Thanks Ron. You always provide a wonderful practice.

What a nice, relaxing practice to kick off 2020! This was my first time participating in one of Ron's classes. I found his teaching style to be both calming and comforting. Thank you and best wishes in the new year.

This was a fun, challenging concept to do the entire practice blindfolded. It felt like the perfect entrance to the new year. I appreciated experiencing yoga in a different way, challenging my balance without sight and allowing for a deeper mind-body connection. At times I wanted more specific direction, but I also gave into the freedom of moving my body without focusing on creating the perfect pose. Thank you for offering this.

What a great way to start the 2020 New Year! This class was a lesson and reminder to trust my inner vision. Beautifully calming. Even though the class is considered intermediate, it brought a new sort of challenge using the eye mask (in my case, closing my eyes for the entire practice). Thank you Ron, for a wonderful class and wishing you a 2020 filled with love, joy and inner peace!

Dear Ron, that was delightful and unexpected. Perfect way to begin the new year! Thank you. Setting intention this year on breath, so this practice was so spot on. Excited to see what else this Challenge holds!
Cheers DYWM Community!

If you thought you knew yoga, try this class! Ron meticulously prepared and explained "blind flow" makes it a curious and challenging experience. Since English is not my first language, I had to open my eyes from time to time to get visual cues, but on the whole it was a very fulfilling session. I recommend it to anyone who wants to go beyond routine and work body self-awareness.
Thank you very much, Ron, and have a great New Year!

Thanks Ron for a great day one for the new year challenge. Loved doing the blindfold as I set my intention as balance so this was tested straight away. Happy new year
