Thank you for the wonderful class, David. I want to download it; is a small computer considered large screen? (Maybe those are two different formats and one doesn't work in both devices)
Thanks in advance for your answer.

Hi Teresa.
Thanks for the kind words. It actually depends... the mobile version will work on a computer screen but it may seem a bit pixelated if the screen is fairly large. The HD is your best bet if you want the video to be sharp.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
Take care,

great class

I love this class and always feel very energized when It's completed. One thing I notice is with my left leg, from a previous hamstring injury, is that I feel tingling on the outer aspect of left leg. Particularily when I bring straight upper leg across lower right leg. I don't over emphasise the stretch but I can feel tingling. Should I avoid it all together?

Thanks for the feedback! No, you don't need to avoid it all together, but you do want to be careful not to hold the stretch for too long or move it deep enough that you feel pinching or burning. Sometimes tingling is a necessary part of releasing really tight muscles.

Thank you for the relief and precise instruction?
If there is ANY burning, I should move out of the stretch? How can I determine what pains are safe and unsafe?

The first time I did this class I had relief only the day after.
After doing this class 4 times now, the sharpness of the pain is gone. Going to stick with this one.
Thank you!

Excellent class--very relaxing!

The instructions were very clear and easy to follow with this class, and the pace was perfect for how I was feeling. I was able to keep my laptop on my desk and replicate the poses and stretches without sitting up to look at the screen even once! I don't have my own strap, so a sturdy scarf worked just fine in a pinch. I saved this video and am hoping that it will help relieve my sciatic pain--and I'm definitely going to look and see if David has other classes on this site!
