Yoga for Inner Acceptance

Beginner I

If you sometimes struggle with accepting your inner experience - such as who you are, how you feel, what you think about and what others think of you - then give this class a try. It's designed to gently shift your perspective, encouraging you to feel your body and experience your emotions in a nonjudgemental way and to awaken compassion. If you repeat it regularly, it will help you better understand yourself, and can teach you how to let go of feelings of anxiety, depression and emotional pain.

Gentle, but effective practice. I was feeling a bit anxious earlier today, but feel both physically and emotionally better after having done this practice. Thanks so much.

Did this class when I was on the verge of a rare (for me) panic attack. Feeling much more grounded and don't need to take a xanax. Very grateful David.

This is an amazing class, just what I needed on my journey of self-exploration and destressing. Very reassuring and empowering, yet very deeply relaxing as well. Perfect.

David, thank you for this lovely meditation and yoga session. I suggest that you do not call this a yoga exercise but a yoga and meditation. There is only yoga up to 16 minutes, and the rest is meditation, so that´s 18 minutes straight of meditation. Call it what it is. I especially think it's inappropriate for this reason to put it in the 30-day yoga challenge. It's a yoga challenge, not a meditation challenge. In my opinion, for what it's worth.

I've done this practice a few times, but yesterday was the first time it truly clicked for me. I've been feeling so much stress and self-doubt, and that guided meditation at the end melted it right out of me. So good to be reminded that everything is temporary.

I'm just coming back to yoga after a longgggg hiatus and this title drew me in as I've been dealing with loads of stress and anxiety that I'm having trouble with shaking off. This was exactly what I needed to start managing and releasing this anxiety and getting back into a practice. thank you thank you.

Thanks so much David. I stayed with your voice during shavasana and actually felt tingling, and release, in each body part when mentioned! I will revisit this lesson many, many times.

David, what an incredible class! Thank you. It was so relaxing, a perfect Sunday evening peacefulness. I cannot say how these 30 days have helped ground me and bring me into this new year. I look forward to the last beginner class tomorrow and then moving on to the intermediate 30 days next. I want to keep the momentum going! Namaste.

Oh My David! This was AWESOME! I never lay down at the end of class as I can not get my back to relax! I always do legs up the wall, which in itself is very good. BUT I just melted into the floor! Even my tongue fell off of the roof of my mouth WITHOUT me telling it to. This was fantastic and took me right out of the bad mood I started with.

I have been out of yoga practice for about a month, and out of my other exercise habits (running, weightlifting) for a bit longer. I have been sinking deeper into negativity. Several times I tried to get back. This practice helped me realize that my mistakes don't have to form a pattern and be in effect today. Thank you! Namaste.
