tight hamstrings and back!
lsegundo 3 days ago

This class is great and addressed by lower back issues and tight hamstrings. I sit for long periods at work. However, my upper and mid back are extremely tight as well. I almost feel like I would need someone to break it and reset it for me to get into a forward bend. Any recommendations for this?

This class is exactly what I need. My hams are always tight, and I didn't realize how tight my hips were as well. Much appreciated.

Thank you for this class --

Thank you for this class -- it is exactly what I needed. Though I couldn't go as deeply into the poses as I would have liked, this class is something I can work toward going deeper!!

It's been a few months since I've done yoga and this video definitely helped me back as a beginner. I did want to ask what are good stretches for a shoulder? Please advise. Thanks.

I also have ITB issues and tight hips and thought this class was great! I will definitely be doing it on a regular basis. David, you are a great instructor, very calming and you describe each element with clarity to make sure we get it right, thanks! :)

Great for stretching IT Band

I have had troubles with my left IT band - it is very tight all the way from my hip to my knee. I was told to do some hip stretches. This class was perfect for stretching the areas that needed it. I am going to do this one on a regular basis. I love David's clear, concise, and calm instructions in all of his classes. Thank you so much for making this and other classes available!

Favorite class!

I have enjoyed many of these classes but this one is my absolute go-to class for my tight hips and hamstrings. Thank you so much for the relief I feel from the arthritis-like symptoms of the estrogen-blocking drug, Tamoxifen. The side effects are terrible for many of us post-cancer-treatment. Your site has been very helpful to me. Thank you so much.
