I'd like to donate but not download! I've downloaded the audio only but I don't really want it and I'd love to just be able to donate. I have no regular income at the moment so can't commit to being a subscriber - yet! Let me know. Namaskar. Lucy

I used this before weight training and it was a really thorough practice that I felt good doing.
It is a nice , challenging practice too.

AMAZING class! If I could give it 10 stars I would. I am recovering from left hip injury and this class is perfect. Hard work but I could feel the strengthening and releasing. Thank you and namaste.

Always enjoy Fiji’s classes, the tempo, tone and challenge is just right for me. I did this for the first time after a run and sprint work and it was wonderful will definitely be coming back to it again and again.

As a 58 year old Peace Corps Volunteer on the Island of Dominica my wife and I are attempting to complete all 14 segments of the Waitikibuli National Trail. It is a lengthy, arduous hiking trail through muddy rain forests and up and down mountains and valleys. This class has helped me and my wife avoid injury, increase stamina and shorten recovery time. We only have 5 segments left!!!! Thank you, Ms. McAlpine and DoYogaWithMe. It's been a lifechanger having this site available.

I am starting a running practice after several years off because of injury and with this class I am very hopeful that I can run injury free. I remember when I started running for the first time back in the 80's I thought yoga would be a perfect complement but could find no instruction, and I didn't have the knowledge to create a practice for myself. This time is different! Thank you, Fiji and David and everyone at DoYogaWithMe.
