Loved these stretches. Thanks David. Others commented that they missed something at the end in corpse pose. I didn't even think about that as I know each of the DYWM teachers have different ways for the corpse pose - some are silent, others do a mediation, others ask students to go back to their mantra. All different, all the reasons why I love DYWM.

i liked this short but effective class - an interesting flow of hip stretches. But I felt deserted at the end - it didn't finish properly. You need to end the shivasana, not just leave people with a namaste they can't read on the screen! Otherwise very good, thank you.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you liked it. In reference to the ending, this was one of the first classes we filmed and we didn't have a consistent way of finishing classes. I'm glad you pointed it out so others know what to expect.

My hips are very painful many times a week. Then I do this video. And then my hips feel loose and happy. So grateful to you!!!!

One of the best classes I’ve ever found for stretching and relaxing after a long run. Thank you so much.

A very good sequence, voted 5/5. Also a pleasant surprise there was no vinyasa.
Thank you!

I have come back to this class time and time again. The gentle but thorough stretches hit all the places that often tighten up for me. Stiffness, soreness, tightness all melts away with David's calming guidance.

Needed a shorter effective routine for my hips and this is it. Thank you. I also love that you incorporate music to your classes as I find it calming and focusing.
