A nice slow and gentle class with some good twists. Great surroundings and David's calm voice. Thank you. There is no "namaste" or bell at the end, the music fades away.

I am so happy to have found this class. I am healing from a stress fracture and not supposed to put weight on my foot. This was perfect. I will revisit often, now, as well as look for other sitting classes. Thank you!

I did a class yesterday and this morning woke being very aware of my inner thighs. This was the perfect antidote and now I feel great!

Did this class 12 days after thyroid removal surgery. Had done just a bit of walking during those 12 days. I am so grateful for this class. it is a nice ease back into normal. and after days of not being comfortable this has helped release tension. Namaste

After several rounds of nerve-damaging chemotherapy, I found I had lost a surprising amount of flexibility. This class has helped me slowly regain some of what was lost. The gentle movements are more challenging for me than I originally imagined.

I enjoyed David, His voice is soothing and his directions clear. I had a knee replacement and I am a size 14 an beginner. Some of these poser were wonderful and feel great. some I could not do but modified to the best of what i can do . Which is part of it. learning your limits and allowing your body to do what it can. Some poses I feel are not for beginners or for people who are not flexible. I am hoping with continued use i will gain more mobility. thank you!

There was a lot of time to get into the pose, but once I was there, there was hardly any time to really feel the pose and get deeper into it. Also, as other people said, a couple of poses were really not beginners and no alternatives were given for people with less flexibility.

I have been practicing yoga for 20 years and I am discovering that I love really simple meditative classes. Your emphasis on relaxation is what I really like. Loved this class .. although my favourite one of yours is the 'yoga for inner acceptance' which is amazing. Thank you

The bound poses were impossible for me since I'm still sort of a beginner and I'm plus size lol but hopefully I'll be able to do all of this easily!

Oh: I love this class. Even though I don't think some of the poses can be executed completely by beginners (and I am a true beginner), I could feel my body responding so well to this class, even when I couldn't stretch so much or perform the pose as David. Will definitely do it again!

The beginning is nice, the hip stretches but it becomes an Ashtanga practice after without modification. Marachiasana with binding is by no means a beginners practice.

I really enjoyed this Yoga class and I will do it again, but as it is marked as a beginners class I was surprised there weren't more modifications given. I found a lot of the poses beyond my bodies capability, so I modified myself but more guidance would have helped!

This practice really keeps the body loose and free from pain. Includes some of my favorite poses-cow face pose, cobbler, gentle twisting poses. If I do get a slight injury from following other videos, I do this practice immediately and all is well.
Sometimes I stick exclusively to David's videos. I know that I will not be caught wrong footed because his descriptions are perfectly clear. At first, some of the poses were challenging-inverse plank- but now I do them with little effort. Thank you for these great videos.

Lots of nice, slow, fairly easy poses, with several poses that are beyond beginner level (unless you are freakishly flexible). It's a good idea to warm up a bit before following this lesson, especially right after waking.

I felt totally relaxed especially at the end. The only problem was my sore shoulder which is bothering me for days and felt pain full during the practice. Other than that an excellent class.

I wish and hope you will make this available in video format.

On some holidays our gym cancels classes, but gym remains open.

Us dedicated ~ well, interested yogis meet up anyway and use our studio for a class.

We're not quite ready for the audio only podcast and the wifi filter blocks your website.

Thanks for your classes.

My favorite and most beneficial classes are the ones with the teacher frequently giving verbal "corrections" "reminders" "instruction" about reaching each pose correctly. That also helps me keep my focus and awareness in the present.

Thank you again for this generous, wonderful site.

I'm going to make this a regular practice and use it to get deeper into the forward and sideways stretches.

It took me a while to relax because of the tension on my lower back. I think it was due to the staff pose/Dandasana that we keep for a long time during this practice.

I literally just finished this class about 30 mins ago. I really enjoyed, great way to start the day. I especially liked the reminder to keep peace and awareness of your body throughout the day. Great site, great class, great day!

This exercise is sometimes hard, but its very, very relaxing. The stillness at the end was my favorite part. (shev, 9 years old)
I loved doing this with my daughter - we got a good stretch, and I enjoyed relaxing with my daughter at the end! (rc, mom)

I've done sporadic sessions of yoga and pilates so I'm a little more flexible than the average person. I found this to be very relaxing and still offering a little challenge. I feel stretched out and at peace. Thank you!

I woke up today feeling tight and not very strong. I am an intermediate-advanced yogi, so I wanted something that would challenge me, just not kill me in my not-so-strong state. This video was PERFECT, very well done, nice music, deep stretches many of which I have never done and I loved them all. Thanks so much, David, I needed a video just like this! Can't wait to check out the rest of your stuff.

I enjoyed this very much. My only suggestion is for David to verbally finish out the shavasana. I was laying there waiting to be told to roll on my left side, then sit up, then say Namaste, but that didn't happen. Thanks!

This was a nice session, but a few of the moves seemed more than be beginner. It would be good if David could say when it was ok to stop or an alternative hold for people who aren't flexible yet.

This is the only exercise video of any kind that I've enjoyed and looked forward to everyday! I'm 60 and have some knee issues, so I'm not flexible enough to do some of the poses. And yet...if I stick with it, when it's over, I feel calm and centered and usually also, very sleepy. I've given your URL to everyone I know because I am so grateful. I would like to ask that you offer alternative poses for those of us with joint or weight issues, just so that we're getting as much benefit from flows as we can--if that's possible. If not...I'll just have to keep doing the best I can, and having a giggle when I come to those, "No WAY is that going to happen" poses!

Found myself discouraged by the difficulty of the stretches starting around 20 minutes in, this may be better for people with more than a few sessions under their belt.

This is excellent as a beginner video and even for those who already have some experience, there were a couple poses that my body hadn't done before and I feel they are exactly what I need to push myself further with yoga.
