I'm writing to say thank you David for all the amazing work you do, and also to thank the other teachers who contribute videos to Do Yoga With Me. I've been using it for a number of years (donating when I can) and am really impressed with the commitment to make yoga accessible to everyone regardless of income, and the breadth and depth of the videos on the site. There is something for everyone on Do Yoga With Me! As a Zen practitioner I frequently recommend the site to people who are just starting meditation practice both for help in opening up hips and also grounding in the breath. Fellow members of an international half marathon training group I was part of last year are loving the videos for help with tight hamstrings, back muscles and shoulders. My 73-year-old father, who's completely new to yoga and has a neuromuscular disorder, uses the chair videos and other gentle beginner videos, and I also have friends who are experienced practitioners who love the intermediate and advanced videos. The site has particularly meant a lot to me in the past 18 months as I've been struggling with agoraphobia and a panic disorder that has made it difficult to leave home some days. To still be able to maintain a yoga practice at home has helped me so much. And the addition of classes for anxiety, depression, and stress is a wonderful broadening of the material on the site! It's clear that this site is a labour of love. Thank you for all of your efforts!
I just want to thank you for this site. I have just tried some neck release yoga that has already made my neck feel better. I will donate as soon as I am able too, unfortunately, I have had all my disability benefits taken away but am fighting to get them back. Although I cannot donate money at this point I will pass this site on and do for others what I can. Namaste
I can't express how grateful I am for this website, though I can see a lot of people have certainly already tried. It's an unfortunate reality that when money is the tightest, you're the most stressed, and you can't afford classes is when you need yoga the most. I had been trying to continue my practice at home, but what do I know? I'm definitely not an instructor, and I can only work through those poses and flows that I've experienced before (and there's no guarantee I remember them perfectly, or can always keep my own form in check). DoYogaWithMe has just been a lifesaver. When I first found the site and opened my first video (with the enchanting Ms. Fiji!), I couldn't seem to help choking back a few tears. What a RELIEF! I can't wait to have enough money to contribute to and support this incredible gift and cause. All my friends will know, too! Thank you so much!!
Hi there! I recently discovered this website and I just wanted to say thank you so much for providing such a wonderful service free of charge! I've had really bad back pain for a long time now and I can already feel a difference after having done just a few practices. I really appreciate everything you are providing, and especially the voluntary subscription aspect of it. As a university student with hardly any income and a fair bit of debt I can't afford to take yoga classes anywhere and this has been a really wonderful discovery. I feel terrible for not being able to donate at the moment but as soon as I have a bit of money I will, absolutely. Thank you again, so much!
Thank you for this fantastic website!! I have only been on for about a week and have tried a few of the free beginner classes, but I am already noticing improvement with my hip and lower back issues. What a valuable and wonderful resource to be able to use in the privacy of my own home. David Procyshyn's instruction is clear and easy to follow and seems to be an answer to my prayers. I am SO grateful!!
I have suffered two cerebral strokes in the past ten years due to a medical condition that I have. After the second stroke which has been over two years now I still have problems walking. In addition, I have tightness in the affected area, the right side which has turned my life upside down. But I discovered your website by accident and I practice working on loosening my tight hips, legs, lower back, neck---to be frank, the entire body. Unlike other yoga videos that bombard you with too much bla bla bla, these videos help you get centered and feel your body. I want to thank everyone associated with Doyogawithme for giving of their time to help others. Once again thank you. Namaste.
I have been feeling so guilty for using so many of your precious videos - especially the ones with the lower back pain, deep release for hip, lower back -and few other recent ones that you have added - they have really helped me - and most importantly - I love the peace and serenity (voice plus settings) that goes with each of your videos - really thankful that you let people use your website for free and let us benefit so much !! I am personally very grateful for your generous offerings to the public! Keep up the amazing work that you do !! Much appreciated!
I just wanted to say thank you for putting together this web site and offering these free yoga classes! They got me insterested in yoga and helped me to begin practicing regularly and get in better general health. This is such a great gift you offer, and it makes a big difference. It has benefited me a lot. I did a few classes already and all the teachers are VERY good. Thanks for them too for doing this. I will certainly donate to support your project. Merci!
I want to thank you so much for all that you do. When I read the comments on your web site I am always amazed that you are so important in so many peoples lives that you have never met. I am definitely one of the those people. As I was really starting to feel the early effects of aging I found your website, and after a year of practicing regularly I feel like I have turned the clock back 10 years. Thank you so much. Although I get great benefits from many of your instructors , David and Melissa, you have been so important in my learning how to age in a healthy manner. Again, thank you all for what you do,
I just wanted to say that what you are offering is so amazing. I really appreciate it!! Thank you so much. And thank you for offering it on donation -- it really makes the spirit of this feel so much better to me. I offer workshops here in Montreal in the Work that Reconnects, also in the spirit of dana or donation. It's really valuable, and does so much to build worldwide yoga community. So thank you!!
Ever since I found this site, you became my companion, at home, on trips, anywhere I can get internet connection. I can adjust my practice for the level I desire and the time I have. Your videos are of high quality, and you always add new ones. I've told my friends to try. Thank you for making these yoga practices widely accessible.
All I can say is thank you for this life-saving site. I am so happy a friend told me about it.
Thank you for the great site and all of your work to create this opportunity for expanding my practice! I live half the year in a remote location where I can't stream the site, but I use it a lot when I have better access to the internet. I teach an older population at a community center, so listening and working with you all helps me tremendously. I have purchased some of the audios which I listen to carefully also. Warmly,
I want to say a big thank you for all of your work. I love this site, and really enjoy having some challenging classes to build my home practice. I love that the videos have high production values and there are heaps to choose from--one for every mood. Keep up the excellent work.
I love this site! Melissa is so kind and gentle. Tracy is full of love and her classes are just my style. David, you always make my aches and pains go away. Fiji, I did your class all winter long and memorized it so I could do my own classes in Cuba ( No internet , no worries). I have told so many people about this site. My friends and sisters now text me and tell me what instructor or class they just discovered. Did I mention your classes, David, are fabulous? Sorry I could go on and on and I do. I feel beyond blessed to do yoga with all you amazing people!!! God Bless you all to the moon and back !!!!!!!!
Hello all!!! I am contacting you to know that I just joined the community as a free yoga user and I wanted to tell you. THANK YOU for offering free classes. My husband and I have endured some financial set backs in the last 9 months and I am really struggling with my post-partum body image. I am hoping to take advantage of your free classes until I feel financially confident to donate a monetary fee and/or become the monthly subscriber. $5 a month is not much but I want to be sure that I am able to commit fully. I am so thankful for your services and all of the yogi's talents, support, and encouragement. I think this website is going to be a life-changer for me. You deserve to know that. I assure you that I will be donating to your company and website. Namaste,
I must say I was hesitating a little to take online yoga classes. However, after searching several sites I found this one and got registered. This was my first class online and I can only tell that my expectations were exceeded. The level of knowledge of this instructor made me feel more connected than with traditional yoga in a studio. I've done studio yoga with different instructors for more than 10 years and I felt the same. They are great. All of them. And you have the bonus of choosing the yoga that suits you that day.
I want to thank you and all the other yogi participants in allowing me to do yoga at home. It is the number one site I visit - actually the only site I do yoga with. I know it takes great lengths to make a website successful so again, thank you. Please ask Ron to do more videos! And, I love your stretching videos, David. Amazing. Cheers,
I just wanted to send a quick message to let you all know how much I appreciate the work you are doing with this website. I discovered doyogawithme.com a few weeks ago and have been doing several classes per week with my wife at home. We love the classes, and it is amazing that they are all offered with optional donations only. I am a primary care physician, and I deal with patients with musculoskeletal issues on a daily basis. I routinely prescribe stretching exercises for minor complaints, and I am going to start directing my patients to your website for therapy. I frequently recommend yoga, but most of my patients cannot afford formal classes. I hope that they will appreciate it as much as I do, and I look forward to seeing some positive results in the office. Thanks again!
I have just found this website. I was so depressed before, and could not get out the house, so doing your yoga classes at home is making me feel so much better and alive! I must truly thank you for this free yoga , I intend to donate also, as I am not under pressure to, which make this all the more likeable. The range of classes and instruction is splendid, well tutored and I have never ever done such enjoyable classes like yours. So a Great Big Thank You!
