Thank you; many ‘one breadth’ holds of the postures, but never rushed. This gets the parts that don’t always get reached, especially the hip flexors and adductors for me!

Great after riding bike today. Must do this one again.

I practice a DYWM video just about every morning - and I love them all, don't get me wrong! But, most of them are arm and shoulder heavy. Sometimes, gosh, I'd really like a 20 or 30 minute yoga routine that challenges leg strength - or even just gives some good stretching, like this video. There are a few videos that are great for legs, but they aren't described or tagged that way, so I stumble upon them over time. It would be great to have more dedicated leg routines...just to switch it up from the arm-heavy vinyasas...maybe chair pose vinyasas instead? In any event, this was great - it was a nice break and I feel ready to tackle a bike ride now! Thanks David!

Thanks for the feedback! We do have a lot of videos that focus on the legs, but I think you're right - the titles don't necessarily indicate that. We'll contemplate this... in the meantime, thanks for the feedback. Hope you had a nice bike ride!

My husband Bradley and I do DYWM videos together every morning- I teach ZUMBA and he is a high school TRACK COACH. Well! After doing this practice the first time, he opted to have us do it every day for three in a row and even invited some of his athletes to do it as well. He even bought the video on his own account, which he just opened after doing this ! One great Leg practice for sure! Hits all the main areas and it is really amazing to see improvement in this part of our bodies (we're coming up on 50!) in just one day! Thank you and we are really looking forward to meeting you in person at the Yoga Event in Mexico in February! :)

Sorry to keep commenting on this class! Just wanted to give a heads up that it doesn't come up when you search Yoga for Runners, and it probably ought to as this is a great runners' class :-)

As a runner increasing my mileage, I've been suffering with sore legs, on my long run today my calves were tight and painful. They feel an awful lot better after doing this class, and I'm hoping I'll feel the benefits on my run tomorrow too! Thank you so much for this class

Just as a follow up, ,my legs really did feel a lot better on the next day's run , no tightness in the calves at all :-)

I have a dead balance nerve on my left side. I need to keep three points in the floor at all times or risk injury. What is the best way to do that if I can't put my hands in my knee in this exercise set?
