This beginners yoga class is great for people who are just starting out with yoga, seniors, or anyone who is looking for a gentle stretch class. It moves through a series of poses that stretch mainly the upper body - the spine, shoulders, neck and back.


Great not only for beginners

I never did this class before, because I didn't consider myself a beginner not knowing how to stretch. I am glad to found that this assumption was incorrect. This class is really great. I especially liked to arm stretches at the wall!
Thank you very much!

Felt so liberating!

When I went to try this a couple years ago I was disheartened because I had a strap but I did not have a regular chair! I finally got a chair and did this for the first time today. I loved it, though I have terrible grip and upper body strength. If I did not have a strap that had the ability to belt I would not have pulled enough to get the stretch I needed. It really shows how everyone is in their own unique place and journey though.

Man, did I need this!

This may be week one, workout one - but I'll definitely be doing this one again. I really needed these gently stretches. It's been a while since I've done any kind of stretching. Thanks!

I've been a beginner at yoga for many years, always coming back to it when life gets rough. This time I hope to establish a regular practice and perhaps progress out of the beginner state. This site seems to be the perfect place to allow me to do that! Thank you David and everyone for this wonderful site. After this month's money crunch, I will become a subscriber.

wonderfully relaxing

This was my first class on he, following the beginner program. It as the perfect start of my Sunday, now on to a nice warm shower and a relaxing day, it really sets you up for a no stress day. Simple, but effective. But most of all clear instructions. You may know some of these stretches from the gym or wherever, but to me they weren't as effective until now, because these clear spoken instructions were better than what I get from my instructors at the gym, and some of them such as the shoulder stretches I finally felt in the right place.

Great video and I will be back for more, and donate too.

One small thing, the video nicely ends with a relaxing almost meditative state lying down.. I just had no clue when the video ended and if there was still gonna be something else. Not that I minded laying on the floor a while longer,but it would be nice to hear a "Now slowly rise and enjoy the sensations as this is the end of this class" or something similar.

Thanks again.

First class I tried on the site...and wonderful

I agree with a_muggle about the chair and wall though. I did the chair exercise standing where I could because all I had was an upholstered chair and some I could not do the movements well due to the large back and arms of the chair. But they worked well standing. I also wished it would have listed the wall, because I had to pause to figure it out too.
What I liked was the instructor moved through the paces at a great speed. I felt I got a great feel for yoga and was not bored (I was really afraid it would be too slow, boring).
All in all- wonderful first time. Thank you!!!!
