After doing this tutorial now twice I see a glimmer of hope! Also it will not be easy to correct poses I have done wrong for so many, many years. A lot of homework to do, thanks.

Very nice. I enjoy these shorter, specifically focused classes as much as the longer ones. Thank you.

I tweaked my rotator cuff at work and it was getting more and more painful to raise my arm overhead. Chaturanga was impossible. After doing this tutorial just once my shoulder feels stronger and both more stabile and more mobile! Feeling grateful and hopeful about my shoulders healing and getting stronger :-)

I never knew I was doing chaturanga wrong until watching this several times. It's much harder the right way! After a shoulder sprain and months of PT without a lot of improvement, I started alternating days with this video and David's Ultimate Shoulder Stretch video, and have seen huge improvements quickly. Thanks!

Nice shoulder work. Since I have been having wrist pain, it's really important to revisit and make sure the problem isn't coming from my shoulders.

Like the shoulder focus. The detailed instructions are a good reminder to stay focused on form. Gave 4 starts because I anticipated a 30-day "intermediate" challenge.

I've been working hard to advance my practice, and coming back to the foundations is always a great reminder that sometimes to move forward, we need to look back at what matters most. Thank you, Fiji!

I like this class. It has really helped me remember how to maintain shoulder strength correctly. It does seem a little weird that this isn’t one of the first classes in the challenge.

I have revisited this class from time to time as I have an old rotator cuff injury - taking it gently its a great practice for reminding your body to engage well in all ranges of motion with your shoulder joints. Yoga has been such a great practice for overcoming injury for me, thanks Fiji for this contribution!

Something I struggle with is shoulders, and this is a great reminder to assure I'm positioning them correctly.

I give this 5+:) Love the breakdown for chatturanga in relation to the clavicle - such a subtle cue but one that will preserve the yogis well bine:) THANKYOU

Very useful to work the shoulders, but doesn't give that much as a standalone class in the yoga challenge.

Efficient and effective. Great lesson on the collar bone and bringing awareness to an overlooked part of the (my) body!
