This class was so awesome! I've just finished Rachel's 7 day inversion challenge so my shoulders and arms have worked hard in the last week and this class was just the medicine I needed to really stretch and relax everything out. All of this class is done on the floor, no standing, about half or so is done kneeling, and I sat up on two blocks which helped me to reduce the effort in my bottom half so I could concentrate on my top half. I think you could do it all cross legged if you're not a fan of kneeling, or even on a chair. The savasana at the end was great but be warned, David doesn't bring you out of it so if you're not careful you might be lying there, totally relaxed, all day :-)

Wow, a thorough stretching. I really enjoyed it - very relaxing too. I don't usually enjoy yoga with music but this worked. Looking forward to day 2.

I found this class the best for neck and shoulder relaxation. Just one note, though the background music was excellent, I found it to be too loud, especially the flute portion.

This is a class I will come back to again and again. Did it for the first time this morning, but I think it's a class for the late evening - (will be a good one to do after strict push press and weight lifting !)
Due to an old knee injury (and nearly no more cartilage) I cannot kneel, so had to modify most of the class !

We love this class so much, David. Thanks for creating it. It helps my partner and I to recover movement and relax upper body and our minds. We've talked about how perfect the background music is for getting in the right state of mind. Today for the first time we read the final credits (usually still enjoying shavasana) and we found out you also created the music for this class which makes it even more amazing. Thanks again, Enrique and Silvina from Sydney :)

Focus on shoulders excellent, slow and measured. But sitting backwards on shins for this long took away some of the attention, so I modified.
