This was wonderful! I feel awesome! I even had my two sons ages 7 and 8 do it with me and they loved it as well. Thank you so much!

I've been interested in yoga for a while now but only recently decided to try it out. I've been wanting to work on my flexibility but wasn't sure where to start. This video helped me a lot and was very easy to follow! Thanks so much for this!

I read that meditation is key to yoga, do you do this each time before you begin? Or is it a personal preference type of thing?

This is a phenomenal class! I am undergoing cancer treatments and a public gym is not an option for me right now. I am usually in a great deal of muscle pain every day from a combination of being more sedentary than I'm used to from the treatments and the general muscle aches you get from it. Having the class available alone was incredible, but the fact the instructor is so good makes it amazing. He is clear, moves at a perfect pace and structures the class in a way that really balances your body and makes you feel like a new person afterwards. I can't express my appreciation for putting this up and making it available for everyone. I have started with this class and the upper body equivalent yesterday and today was the first day in a few months I have woken up and felt muscle relief. THANK YOU :)

First time taking this class and using this website and it is so wonderful! I cannot begin to tell you what being able to follow along with you means to me! I have never been able to afford yoga classes, and they are very limited where I live. I am very grateful!

I've always had really tight hips. I've never been able to cross my legs comfortably. I believe that if I do this 30 minute vid everyday I will see some improvement. Today was my first time doing yoga. It felt good and the stretches isolated the muscles you said they would.

Yes... it's likely your internet connection that is causing it to stop. Try pressing play, then pause it for a minute or so to allow the video to load a bit longer. Then once you play it, it should go right through until the end.

Neither the audio nor the video will play through, it stops in the middle. DARN! Any tips?
