Sun Salutes with Binding Twists

Intermediate I

I absolutely love this Hatha yoga class! It's challenging, rigorous and a great flow through a series of poses that stretch the entire body, with a focus on deep stretching for the shoulders. There are a lot of arm binds, twists and poses that will make you sweat! Note: you will need a strap or tie for this class.

Binding twists were too much for me but I loved the class and the open, expansive feeling afterwards. Thank you David

I love your hour long classes. Its not only feels great while I'm doing the work, its the meditative relaxation at the end that makes it all worth it. Thank you so much!

Slow, powerful and deep stretching class that allows for the body to relax and release. And what a lovely yoga nidra during shavasana. Thank you for that.

A lovely well paced class. Did wonders for me, especially after all the faster and more energetic classes I have been doing. Thank you, David

I like all of David's classes - always with some kind of binds :-). But this particular class has a profoundness in its rhythms and deepening repetitions of sequences - it's sublime on physical and mental levels. I've returned to it many times. Thank you, David.

What a great class!

This is my second time doing it. I never knew I could fold forward in cow pose--that was a surprise. Of course I can only do it on one side right now, but hope to add the other side in time. Thank you David.

There is a very nice long ending to this one which I found very relaxing after the effort I had expended.

Thank you, David, for this great class. It is a bit challenging, but I ended with the muscles relaxed and toned at the same time (specially those in the upper back and shoulders). The pace is perfect, not extenuating but with an interesting variety of poses. The instrucions clear and precise. Namaste!
The only con: the sinister background music :-

This was a nice class to help me wind down at night and stretch those shoulders

This is one of my go to classes -usually at least once a week. Sometimes my practice is off-grid so I am wondering if it could be available to purchase at least the audio? Thanks.

What a wonderful class for Christmas time - slowwww and stretchy, full of body awareness. Shoulders are very open and happy now. Loved the looong savasana integration.
Thank you so much David, for the clear and calm instructions and modelling!
And gratitude to Craig for the didj and flute sound yoga! What a perfect blend!
Hope you co-create more!

As always, David Proscyshyn is amazing, and this class is exceptional, perfect for a weekend when I have more time. Especially perfect was the savasana, really beautiful imagery for being inside my body and feeling the integration of the movements from class. I have shoulder tightness not only from a desk job but also from repeated injuries (which have healed), but they are very sensitive. The stretches are completely thorough, but gentle enough to modify and "oh my gosh" feels SO good.

I can't express how thankful I am for this class.Slow and challenging it was the perfect way to calm down in an evening practise. My body was totally relaxed during savasana.
Thank you so much David!

This was the most blissful and relaxing yoga class I've taken in a long time. And it really stretched all the places I desperately needed to: mainly shoulders, and some hips and back. By the end, I was feeling so good that I even drifted off a time or two in shavasana, which I've never done before. Perfect on this rainy day. Thank you, David!

I was nervous to try this class because I can't really do binds (I have very short arms) but it was amazing, and there were plenty of alternative ways to do the poses without the binds. It was challenging enough to keep me focused, but at the same time, so incredibly relaxing. I think this one is my new favourite.

Thanks david. Ive been using your site for a while now and havent thanked you yet!
This class was good for me as Im always tempted to do too much and go too fast and you made me slow down and still work very well on the body.

We have done this yoga class by accident, but it turned out to be absolutely perfect for us after an exhausting climbing day. Lots of stretches for the shoulders and the back muscels.

It was nice to have a full hour devoted to my tight shoulders. Liked the pace, but would have also liked some core and more leg work. Thanks so much David.

I need to work on my shoulders (especially the front of the right one) and getting deeper into twists. I feel your videos help a lot with that.
