Great video
JanChris 5 years ago

I have done many yoga DVDs and online videos but I never felt they explained movements properly. This was my first video on this site and it was awesome. Everything was so simple. Yesterday I did a killer leg workout and I woke up this morning pretty sore. The stretches in this video made me feel great in the hamstrings and glutes. Will def be following more videos now that I finally found a good site!

Totally awesome

I have very tight hips, hamstrings and lower back upon starting this routine. Although I still have a long way to go, this routine as helped me tremendously. I do it twice a day. Once when I get up in the morning and once before bed. I am new to yoga, and I absolutely love it! Will def donate soon! Thanks again. Tymikia

I just got back to the gym yesterday after several months, and this is exactly what I needed to relax and stretch my sore body.

Excellent Stretch

I've just been getting back into yoga and this was exactly the type of stretch I needed to help loosen up my hips, which I've had problems with for years. It'll obviously take a while for them to fully loosen, but this video definitely put me on the right track. Thanks, David!

This was a great class. My only complaint is that my knee hurt afterward, but that's the same knee I had surgery on. This was certainly not David's fault though!!

Thanks so much for these, David. As a cyclist I have really tight hips and lower back and find this class perfect for opening them up.
