Wow, what a great class! Very clear thorough instruction and I feel so good after it. I have chronically tight shoulder and neck muscles high did lead to CTS and also Cubital Tunnel Syndrome in both wrists and elbows. Whilst an Osteopath has helped me greatly and relieved both conditions, I need to work on loosening these muscles to prevent both conditions returning, and I feel like I’ve finally found what I need. This whole course seems to be excellent, thank you!

This series has been invaluable to me during this mandatory work at home order. I have shared your site with so many family members and friends and I’m sure many of them will continue their subscription following the 2 month free trial! Thanks for all you do.

How could I be as old as I am, and have worked on headaches and carpal tunnel for as long as I have, and never have seen some of these stretches before?! I really thought I'd seen/done it all, but David, you really get to new angles, especially for the shoulders, and it feels amazing. Thank you!

I was recovering from shoulder bursitis and dealing with nerve pain in my elbow and hand and this class has been an absolute godsend. Can't recommend it enough. Brilliant :-)

I have been working my through all David's neck, shoulder and upper back classes and it has really made a difference, I am feeling much less tight now in that area. I particuarly like this class because it includes the hands and wrists and also some strengthening. All in all a fantastic class!

The neck exercises in the beginning have completely taken away my neck pain upon doing this for 2 weeks! Thank you so much.

I get a lot of pain in my forearms and haven't so far found a class that really concentrates on that. It's the tendon from the fingers to the elbow joint, gets very sore from typing a lot. Is there any class that focusses on that?

This series is amazing! I stumbled across it a while ago when I was having wrist pain and now have it bookmarked. I'm a dental student, so I end up sitting in all kinds of weird positions between practicing and being hunched over studying. This is the only series that I find truly gives me release in my neck and shoulders. Thank you David!!!

I really feel that this class could be re-titled something like " Yoga for office workers" or "Neck and shoulder opening" rather than diagnosis-specific title. So many more people could benefit in addition to those with CTS. People with all sorts of musculoskeletal issues can benefit. Many more people would likely choose to try this class if it were retitled. I know I would.
Great class!

Not just for computer workers! I am a Thai massage therapist and sometimes my hands and arms get sore. I did this after a treatment yesterday and it helped a lot!

It's great to hear the appreciation for this video. It is so good at correcting and healing all of the common issues associated with computer work, or any work that involves using your hands for long periods of time.

Thanks for the great feedback!

Take care,

I have to say how much I love this workout. It has helped me manage pain and stiffness in my neck and back from a pinched nerve and working at a PC all day. The stretches really help you open up the neck and back, and the strengthening helps prevent further tightness and improve posture. It's a favorite routine, thanks David. This one really hits the spot(s).

I work in a very stressful job. I am a Mental Health Counselor in a high security residential facility. The work is physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually draining. Then, since I live in Los Angeles, have an hour and a half commute home.

So, all day long I just kept thinking...as soon as I get home I'm throwing on my exercise clothes and trying a new video. Boy, it felt so good to do "Sun Salutation" and "Downward Facing Dog" among other poses. I try to get my residents to practice Yoga breathing and at least some gentle stretching - but they are so resistant. My hope is that I will move in to another job opportunity where my clients will be willing to try some of the simplest exercises and realize the benefits to their mental health as well as all other components.

So, once again, thank you for this web site. It truly makes my day!

All my best,
Lisa

I am so glad I found this site! I have been diagnosed with the above issues and go for my first cortisone injection next Monday. Needless to say I am not excited. As soon as I got home from work today, I put this video on and immersed myself in the beauty of stretching.
I don't know if my damage is from 40 years of slamming a tennis ball, writing and working on the computer, or carrying most of my tension in my shoulders and neck - but I am in pain 90% of the time.
I don't have time to make it to Yoga classes at the moment. But starting today, I will put on a video and start enjoying the relaxation and workout I get from practicing the art of Yoga.

Namaste,
Lisa
