I started attending a yoga studio near home, but they never explained to me the postures like this. Now I feel empowered. I travel a lot with my job, as I am a flight attendant, and this videos are excellent for my stays at hotel rooms. Thank you for being there!

i was hoping you would discuss what beginners with tight hamstrings should do. What to do if your forward folds with straight back don't reach all the way down.

You can bend your knees to reach your hands to the floor. This will also protect your low back.

You don't really need to do anything different. Go to where you feel the stretch while maintaining a flat back and hold the pose while breathing and allowing the tight muscles to relax.

David, thank you for such a good introduction to yoga. I have a class of senior beginners that will benefit from what I have learned from you.
