Unknotting the upper back

I LOVE David's classes, and this was no exception. The space between my shoulders had been sore and painful all day, and is now loose and relaxed. Will come back to this often.

This class is a new favorite.

Great Shoulder Stretches

This series of stretches perfectly targeted the tension I get from sitting for hours at a computer! I will definitely integrate this video into my weekly rotation.

Great for my posture

I often find myself slouching... this will help build my posture. Such a great opener. Thank you, I found it really challenging.

I too find this class extremely wonderful. It opens and strengthens, challenges me yet is accessible. I'm so grateful for Do Yoga With Me. I tell people about it constantly and am sad for people who don't practice. Do Yoga With Me changed my 30 year practice in so many ways - expanding it into areas that I'd not known about before. I am especially grateful for the introduction to yin yoga. Delicious. I love that it is free to join as this brings yoga to more people. And also allowed the doubting likes of me to try it for a few months before I committed to a monthly financial contribution. Thank you for all of it.

Just what I needed

I found this class this morning and since I want to try rock climbing in the next few weeks, I thought it would be good to preemptively address the tightness in my shoulders. This class is EXACTLY what I needed, and even better than I'd hoped. I will be making this a regular part of my practice. Thank you, David, for making several classes that focus on the shoulders, upper back, and neck. I have chronic tension in those areas, and your classes do more for me to get my body in alignment than any other class or exercise I've found.

Thank you!

Was wondering if this would do what I needed for upper back and shoulders, and I love David's teachings, but your endorsement was all I needed to hear! Thank you for your words.9
