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.

Thank you David, I love this class and your gentle way of teaching. After an frozen shoulder injury, this is exactly what I needed ❤️

I have been doing this class regularly for more than a year and love the long, extended stretches throughout. So good. Opens up and relaxes so many muscles. It is a great companion to David’s “Yoga for Lower Back Pain II”.

This class is essential for anyone who works with their upper body. I feel more space in my upper back than I've felt in a looooong time.. I am so grateful for this website and all of the amazing teachers on here. Thanks so much, David!

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
