FYI for those wanting to do this class -- it's not very glasses-friendly; if you need glasses to see what's going on, you might need to substitute out some of the stretches or you'll find yourself taking them off and putting them back on a lot.

Great shoulder and upper back work. Thanks David. Love how you took us through relaxation in corpse pose.

I found this to be a relaxed class with determined shoulder stretches. There is a nice slow beginning which David manages to maintain all the way through. It's a paradox that there is effort but the class also seems relaxing. The mysteries of yoga! Thank you David

Perfect way to release the neck, shoulders and upper back in preparation for sleep

This class is very helpful to release my shoulders, which eases up on a pinched nerve that causes a lot of neck pain. Wonderful on a rainy Sunday morning with my coffee :)

Felt a very unique sense of challenge in this one. I clearly need to revisit this. Thanks!

I found dolphin post with elbows in tight as much as I can, and following David's guidance, to be the most intense top shoulder/neck stretch that I've ever found! Bunny pose type feeling but easier to go deeper!
