For anyone who holds tension in their shoulders. There are some releases that I haven't done before, in addition to puppy pose, dolphin and a few others. My shoulders and back felt great afterwards!

Agreed: wow! I feel great - and humbled by how much stiffness I have in these areas. A great class to return to - so many gems in here. Thank you. Namaste.

Excellent class for the upper back, with chest openers to support releasing the upper back - and amazing pec/front shoulder stretches for me. I had no idea I needed that so much! Thank you. ❤️

Gratitude for this class is what I am feeling. The pace and the excellent verbal instructions made this a perfect class for not only upper back and shoulder release but also for wonderful moments of mental and emotional release. Namaste David and thank you.

David led me to an opening in my back that I may have never felt before! Great release.

So good. I find this really helpful as a prenatal class as I’m experiencing some back pain in the 2nd trimester.
