Thank you - I really enjoyed this lesson. Perfect pace and instructions.

Slower Version

I really benefited from the release and letting go, however I definitely would appreciate a slower version as well. I paused the video several times because I felt like I needed to hold the some of the poses longer. The music didn't bother me. Awesome class!

Wow, I really felt a powerful release with this class. Thank you so much!

The ending Shavasana with the visuals you brought in were spot on amazing and really brought tears of release to my soul (and physically, as well).

It's a deep stretch that mightn't suit complete beginners or those with any mobility issues, which makes it more powerful for me.

On day 74 of 365 yoga sadhana and this was what my body craved!

Namaste from Ireland.

So calming

While I do agree that we should get a heads up on the blankets and pillows needed, I usually keep those things close by, so it wasn’t too big a deal. I feel super relaxed after this class, and I really liked all of the poses with the legs up the wall.

I did not care for this class

I did not care for this class as I felt rushed in the poses. The poses were fine, themselves, but I personally prefer a slower paced restorative class that holds the poses for longer than 1 minute.

Amazing class

Amazing class! It really helps with my back issues and my sore legs. I love how it is easy to follow by the audio prompts and the relaxing music.
Thanks a lot :-)

Fantastic class. After a busy weekend I had very little energy for anything but a restorative class.
This was perfect for me today- right length, right pace. Thank you so much.

Deeply letting go
TaraSnowdrop 1 year ago

Thank you David for another wonderful class. It was really relaxing and I was able to really deeply let go. Very healing. Thank you

On a practical note, it's probably best not to wear a bra for this class, so you can arrange your breasts over the bolster for maximum comfort!
