Basic Requirements: Wall, Chair, Strap not stated at the start

Namasté. Coming to this video as an outsider, before I registered, there was no information about what was needed. I had to stop and figure out where to do the wall stretches, the nearest wall is beyond the visual line with the screen. Had to stop and figure out what I could use as a strap for the leg and hip work. worked out my arm more than my hip while doing the strap stretches. Otherwise, I liked the video, very clearly articulated, especially about where to keep joints with respect to other joints to avoid injury. I registered on the basis of this video.

Great stretch class, but need more than just a strap

I really enjoyed this easy class, which helped me stretch a lot of the places that I get very tight. The stretches are easy and you can easily change them to fit your ability. My only complaint is that I needed both a chair and access to an open wall, which I did not have ready so I had to pause and switch rooms a few times in order to do the whole video.
List wall and chair under the props section, we'd be golden. :-)

Wall and Chair

Thanks for the letting me know, fine people. I've added 'wall' and 'chair' to the list of equipment needed, so no one will have that issue in the future.
Take care,

I started my new stretching routine today. Your video is perfect. I'll do it for a week and move to the second one for beginners. I did not use a wall.. just put my arm up and stretched it back. Sad how out of shape I am. Starting with your video.. that changes today. Thanks.

I'm just beginning year 12 and know I'm going to be so stressed throughout the year, but knowing I have this now means I can relax with these videos at any time!
Thank you so much!

I like to think I'm in some sort of shape, but I am pretty sure this video just kicked my butt. Loved it - and I'm glad I decided to start at the very beginning!

Thank You!

Thank you for this website, especially the programs for beginners! I really appreciate everything you have done to make yoga accessible for everyone. Thank you!
This class is particular was a great start to my journey to learn more about yoga. I have taken a class here and there over the years, but I want to integrate yoga into my life and I believe the DYWM website and programs will be the key for me.

My first class

My first class with you was more then I could have imagine. Everything was in alignment, your voice, your movements, your music and your space/room. Thank you and please know that I appreciate the labor of love that went into this website. You and your staff are living the true meaning of Yoga.

Namaste !!

First time doing Yoga!

I have been skeptical about yoga for a long time. It didn't seem to be geared towards us manly men. But I can say with confidence that this puts a whole new view on the world of stretching and relaxing. Very easy to follow and very non-threatening. Thanks! P.S. I have a fabric (not leather) belt that I use for a strap and it worked very well.
