I felt the difference in my body. I was worried about doing it wrong and hurting myself, but David provided very good instructions.

Finally Relief!!!

This was amazing, I was in agony the last 24 hours. It hurts to sit, stand, move, lay down. I was crying this morning while doing chores, being in so much pain and so frustrated. Still in pain but not agonizing pain, what a relief. Thank you David, will be incorporating this into my weekly yoga routine.

I wonder if I could ask a question? My hips (and other joints) seem to be getting more clunky as i am getting a more regular yoga practice. Is this normal? I don't experience any pain .

I suffered from sciatic pain
lindacanyon 1 month ago

I suffered from sciatic pain for over three years, experimenting with multiple stretches, myofascial release and chiropractic treatments...continued to exercise but could no longer run without immediate sciatic pain.
After doing David's sciatic relief program every other day for six months, I no longer have sciatic pain...as long as I continue following this program every other day. I am back to hiking up to 10 miles, walking 6-7 and biking 30 miles with no sciatic pain. Thank you David!

Fantastic

I teach fitness classes and I have teaching my students a few of your stretches at the end of my classes. I tell them about YOU and this site. Thank you David for you kind and caring approach to flexibility training. Namaste!

Great hip opener

I bought a yoga strap this week and I'm so glad I did as it meant i could try out my new strap on this class. Having the legs elevated for long periods with the strap creates different types of openings across the hips and sure helped me with range of motion as I cycled to work post-class yesterday morning. Thank you David for this class and also the 30 day challenge - it's been life affirming this past month.

I am new to Yoga!

My new years resolution..... my mind has quite often wandered into the thought of doing Yoga so now at 56 I am finally listening! I started with the 30 day challenge but seem to drift back to your classes David. I find your teachings and instructions make it so much easier. My energy levels are improving and defiantly feeling more flexible. I find my right hip gets very cranky and the stretches are more difficult that side so adjust accordingly. I have done this class twice now and just love the stretched feeling
Question please: You said you can do it daily or part thereof, if my hip is cranky is it best just to do it every second day or daily. Many many thanks :)

I have been experiencing
debbvoltz 3 months ago

I have been experiencing extreme tightness/stiffness in the muscles & tendons surrounding my hips for month and doing this class really provoked a lot of sensation, it is difficult to know where the line is to stop when even the slightest amount brings on such stretching sensation. This class was so beneficial though even though it was challenging for me, I can feel a new level of openness in my hips right now that I haven't felt in a very long time. Thank you David, for another terrific class! I'll be visiting this one frequently!

I've Taken This Class Many, Many Times ...

It's wonderful! My legs feel so much better after I take this class. I do some of the exercises regularly, even outside this video, but love to do the whole thing sometimes too.

WARNING: You can overstretch doing these exercises. I've been doing them for about 2 months and I ended up with some intense hip pain after I pushed myself too far. The line between stretch and pain can be hard to pinpoint, but err on the side of caution. These stretches work no matter how far you can pull your leg.
