I have two pinched nerves in my neck. I’ve been doing the Yoga for Upper Back throughout the week for a couple of years. It’s really helped me, and I refer to it as my neck saver. Thank you!

ClassI usually focus on my lower back. I really needed this class so I could be more balanced.

Thank you very much for this great class, David. It is ideal for tight and/or weak shoulders and arms. Recommended for everyone.

David, you are a gem. The difference in how I feel before and after this class is dramatic! It's insane! It finds every little hidden tension and leaves me feeling like a new person. Love the relaxation portions as well - nobody does those better than you!

I also had such pain the last few days between my shoulder blades and it is now released. Will be revisiting this class often as this is an area in my body I struggle with. Thank you David!

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.
