Very nice way to start. I loved the hip stretches!

Great start

Yoga always seemed a bridge to far, as I am very limited in my mobility (hence why I started). I feel really good after this session and look forward to my biking now.

I read an earlier comment

I read an earlier comment from someone with fibromyalgia and arthritis. I also have both, and this was a wonderful stretch for my sometimes locked up shoulders and hips. This is my first video with DoYogaWithMe, and I'm already a believer. Thank you!

This was excellent

I have fibromyalgia and arthritis. My shoulders and hips give me a lot of trouble. This was such a good release. I will definitely be doing this again. I feel like I already have released so much tension in my shoulders and have better mobility.

Hip Stretch

Wow those hip stretches were exactly what I needed today. I will be keeping this saved for after I've been walking and I'm getting some hip pain. I feel great!

Great 'Welcome Back' class

I haven't done yoga in far too long and this was a perfect ice-breaker. Love it and will be taking it again.

Great stretch for when I

Great stretch for when I haven't exercised in a while (i.e. months). Not my favourite type of yoga though; I prefer something a bit more dynamic that gets my heart pumping a little.

Excellent class for beginners

Excellent class for beginners, especially beginning (not especially fit) seniors, I can't lay down on the floor, but tried to replicate those stretches as best I could while seated. I've done those same stretches laying on my bed, and may consider that as an option in the future. My only negative comment, and this comment is minor and prolly personal preference, altho the principles of color psychology are generally accepted, I think...the red background doesn't really complement the whole stretching experience, as red is the color associated with energy and aggression. I did enjoy the class and found the instruction excellent, not too fast, not too slow...will likely repeat this class for my back (thoracic) and shoulders. Thank you for this gentle, beginner class!
