Thank you! This is my first journey into stretching my body daily and I have fallen in love. As. a skier, mt biker I really feel this gets deep inside where it needs to be, As well, the smooth slow pace is refreshing to my brain!

Thank you David. I have a foot injury that throws my whole left side out of whack after golf. I return to this video over and over to straighten me out! Your class is like taking a Pilates Reformer session. You are a very talented instructor. I am so grateful.

THanks again David. My sciatic nerve was bothering me lately and when it does I return to this practice. However, this is a great practice for a general leg stretch after a workout.

I suffered three weeks with back and hip pain after moving heavy furniture and only on discovering this amazing class did I figure out that my problem was sciatic nerve pain. The first day doing this practice was difficult, but after eight consecutive days, gently increasing my range of motion, I am now pain free! I returned to my regular daily yoga here on Do Yoga With Me, and am slowly regaining strength and flexibility in my lower back, but still PAIN FREE! I am eternally grateful for David's wisdom and and calm reassurance that this practice would help.

Great as usual. My sciatica is so much improved. However, I went to this practice today just for the leg stretch after working on my Bowflex machine.

That movement we do in the seated position is so awesome. I find I do it often after every practice, especially the one were we move our chest down over our thigh. When I come back up I feel fantastic as I can feel a great stretch from my neck right down to my hip - its as if I can feel my sciatic nerve being stretched and healed.

Great class - thank you! A nice variation of my favorite among David's classes : "Deep release for the hips, hamstrings and lower back". These classes make a huge difference for my well-being .

I am beyond grateful to have discovered this class. I am having a bad sciatica flare and none of the usual stretches seem to be helping. I logged on to DYWM for a beloved Melissa Krieger class this morn and decided to search the site for sciatica. This routine came up in the results, and I was intrigued. As soon as I began the stretches, I knew immediately it was what my body needed. I am pleasantly shocked to say the pain I had before doing the class seems to have diminished by at least 75%. Absolutely incredible. I will be doing this class or some form of the stretches daily as needed. THANK YOU, DAVID!

This class is so helpful. I have had all kinds of treatment for sciatica over the last month and they helped temporarily. this helped me right away the day I did it! So I did it again the next day and plan to continue doing it regularly. It is tough and pushes me, but to my benefit. Thank you very much!
