Ron uses beautiful imagery - and a colorful ball - to guide you through this wonderfully challenging flow that focuses on expansion. His teaching style is like no other, full of fantastic analogies and a flow that often feels more like dance than yoga.

Thank you Ron. Your classes always touches me mentally and spiritually, besides the obvious physical wellbeing, for some reason. Keep doing what you do whatever that is. :-) Namaste!

This was practice was even better the second time in this ongoing inter. program. You may note that at one time the instructor says "move to runners pose" when the instructor actually moves to the standing splits pose.

I'm learning so much in this program.

That was a fun practice. It is great to learn so many different techniques and visuals from all the teachers at DYWM. I feel very empowered from this class. I do need to practice more on balance like most students, but I'm getting there. The visualization of the ball helps with movement and I loved all the arm movements in this class. 73 minutes flew by.

Very nice class! I loved the analogies. The video was a little glitchy in the beginning and in the middle but it resolved quickly. It was a great full body practice!

What a great class, I am so glad I took it. I found it challenging but doable.

I am not sure what you (Ron) mean about the ball rolling up the front of your spine. Are you talking about imagining it inside your body?

I take "real life" classes with a number of talented female instructors, so as a man I appreciated having a male teacher. It is unusual for me and welcome. I will take this one again soon I am sure, really enjoyed the transitions and Ron's sense of humour. Thank you!

Hi JMacDee
I'm glad you liked the class!
Yes, the ball rolling up the spine is imagining (at first) the energy, with the opportunity at some time to be able to actually feel the energy rising.
Once there, see if you can drop the energy back down to the pelvis, via tongue to roof of the mouth, the energy pours down the front.

Thank you Ron,

I have enjoyed all your classes I have tried so far. Last evening was Neutral Spine, Playful Balance which I have taken 2-3 times. I appreciate how you often give us a range to work with. I also like how you laugh at yourself sometimes if you wobble. It shows us it is OK if we do the same. I think I'd find it hard to balance on a mat on sand!

Sorry to be so literal but do you mean we should envision the ball inside our bodies rolling up the front of the spine?

HI James
As you inhale, like a thermometer rising, imagine a ball floating up the spine. I feel it up the front of the spine. Energy flows where we place focus. For me the ball image also reminds me to be tall through the full length of my spine. Hope this helps!
