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!

I agree with other commenters that the class is wonderful: excellent, clear, detailed instruction -- and I think my symptoms have improved. I've been doing the routine daily for about a week -- the full class in the morning and just the left (painful) side in the afternoon. Wondering if that's too often and, if so whether there are other complementary classes on the site. Thank you, David!

Have been suffering with piriformis pain and have had to abandon my yoga classes. This helps me stay flexible and relieve the pain. Thank you so much for offering some sort of relief!!

I love you David Procynshyn. You are the best yoga stretch instructor! I love your teaching methods, calmness, and thorough explanations. I have chronic neck and back problems and your videos help me feel better after I practice. Thank you for this website and all the classes available.

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

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.
