In this class, David shows you how to comfortably sit on the floor in two of yoga's more common seated positions, easy cross-legged (sukhasana) and staff pose (dandasana). He also helps you understand some of the basic yoga principles as you learn how to stretch your body effectively. This class is a part of a 'Yoga for Beginners' series. If you're a beginner who would like to learn more about yoga, check out our Yoga for Beginners page.

I am not a beginner but thank you David for all the depth and detail in this class, to the extent of making me feel as though it was the first time I practiced these poses with all the correct positions and movements!

I've taken yoga classes over the years, but never paused to take true beginner classes. This was lovely; glad to be here.
