I am really loving your website. I have never done yoga before in my life and was feeling drawn to it but unable to know which way to go to learn. Then I discovered your site. I really am blown away by the quality, variety, and all the content on your great website….all for FREE!! I am exploring the different styles, the teachers, and learning what everything means. Most every day, I pick a session I want to try, or just do a breathing technique or a pose. All in the comfort of my own living room floor!! Maybe someday I will venture out to practice in a group setting, but for now I love exploring the many aspects of yoga thru your website. I have learned so much. Thank you for your generosity, your vision, and all who have helped you set it up!! I appreciate the spirit. As I find what is really going to work for me, I will buy some. I am HAPPY to donate a small amount. I hope many more people are doing the same to keep it available for all. I did purchase the sleep nidra and have been using that many nights and love it!! Works great and my sleeping has improved. I also have begun your 21 days of meditation. I have been telling people about your site and “shared” things on Facebook as well. THANK YOU again!!!!! A grateful learner,
I just finished the beginner progressing to Intermediate program, and was very impressed with how well the program was thought out as well as the quality of the videos. I have come a long way in my practice thanks to the practices linked to in the PDF document. I really liked and benefited from the videos you instructed in yourself, David. Some seemed especially designed to assist a stiff newbie to become more flexible and help with standing poses as well. Hard to find male instructors on the internet that do not have extreme practices. The program also gave me a look at where one can go in a practice. Watching Rachel, Tracy, and Fiji at times made my jaw drop, and you can bend ways that I did not know a person could bend. Also, Melissa’s restorative/beginner yoga practices were great on days were a power flow with Fiji would have been too much. Thank you so much for your website. I have donated, and plan to donate again in the future. Regards,
As an instructor of Yoga I stumbled across this site when looking for new styles to introduce to form new classes. This website has been a blessing. I cannot thank you enough. I love that you can buy videos and make contributions. Thank you so much for all you bring with this website! Namaste,
Dear David. I just did an online donation for your organization. I discovered it nearly a year ago now, when I move back to France from the UK to join my partner in the French Alps. I was unemployed and looking for a job, so I had lots of time for your classes, which kept me well entertained and fit! I have only been able to donate now, after a few months of being back into work. However I continue the classes every week, very often in the mornings before I go to work. The variety is fantastic, so please continue the great work. It is also unique to be able to put out these classes for free for people who can't afford them, so I hope your scheme works and that you do get regular donations to keep this going. Many thanks to you and all the team. Best wishes from the Alps!
Hello, I live in Mexico and found your site about 6 months ago! I would like to congratulate you for such a great job and for the quality of your videos. In particular I am a fan of Fiji and of Tracey´s classes. Recently I went to the beach and I downloaded 2 videos which I practiced next to the ocean. Please continue uploading videos. Recently there are no new Fiji´s videos perhaps she is busy being a mom. Happy new year and my best wishes!
I want to take a moment to thank doyogawithme.com for offering such a wonderful service to everyone. I have been practicing yoga for 4 years now and I began my practice as a way to center myself and relieve stress as I furthered my education. Your service has allowed me to continue my practice as I pursue my master's degree, when financial and time restraints prevent me from joining a yoga studio. Upon my graduation and as I secure a job in my field, I intend to donate to your site and continue to spread the word of how wonderful DYWM.com is! Thank you for all that you do and for all of the wonderful instructors who make my day every day! With a smile,
I've been taking a lot of classes on DYWM for the past two years and it has helped me tremendously, not only on the physical level, as an awesome addition to my taxing training regimen(every time I get lazy with yoga, I seem to get injured as if it's some universal law :) ), but also on the emotional level, helping me get through the rough patches (I remember taking Ron's "Gently into Power" at 4AM one night I couldn't sleep from all the anxiety during my graduation internship, living 5000 miles away from friends and family, doing 65hour work-weeks on top of writing my thesis, and I just felt so, so calm and centered afterwards). As a (formerly) poor college student, all of that wouldn't have been possible without your incredible generosity, so thank you so, so much. I made my first (albeit small) donation this week out of my very first month's salary and I hope I can give more in the future. Do not underestimate the contribution you're making to the community, it's huge. Most heartfelt thanks, Inio PS: I must tell you, you're starting to get quite a fanbase here in Belgium and France
Hello David and everyone at DoYogaWithMe.Com I just wanted to let you know I'm from Buenos Aires, Argentina, and just recently took an interest on Yoga, all online. I'm actually a little shy and haven't been to a class, I'm interested in getting to know as much about Yoga online as I can before I step into a class full of advanced learners. Our economic situation is hard right now, and there's a lot of barriers for us to make any kind of money purchases/transfers/donations outside of our country. I'm looking for a way to make a donation to you in a way that is not too expensive (basically, our government charges as much or even double for foreing purchases as the amount of money involved, and it just doesn't make sense). Truth is, after watching only 2 videos I feel the effect Yoga has in my heart, mind and body, and the way all of you teach, the quality of both your video production and editing and your website are to be credited aswell (I mean, closing my eyes and hearing the teachers voices but also hearing the ocean in the back just lifts it up!). Anyway, just wanted so say Hi and promise I'll find the easiest way to become a monthly Doner in gratitude for... well, just transforming my life for the better. Keep up the good work. I really value it, from the bottom of my heart. God bless,
My coming across this website is a godsend. Love and light to all of you involved in its creation and maintenance. I am a South African yogi - practiced for over 10 years, stopped for just over 4 years. To have accessible hatha classes and meditation - you have no idea :) :) :) Very happy heart. David, for founding this site - thank you does not suffice. Nicky - your "Love yourself" video, and Peter - your "Loving kindness for yourself" were just what my soul needed. Please pass on my thanks to all the other teachers involved in the site – it really is awesome, and you have no idea just how much I needed to find it, a real blessing! Am building up to doing 15min a day, with a weekly class, and will take it from there. Why I ever stopped…. Namaste.
Thank you for this wonderful site. It has changed my life and helped me help others. Living in a northern mountain rural community yoga class is a luxury that most cannot have. While it is beautiful and healthy place to live, we are confined by harsh weather, proximity to activities, daily chores and difficulties that plague rural communities. Access to this free yoga has helped me create peace and breath in daily life. Please continue this free yoga site always. I wanted to write so that you know how much you are helping others. Thank you, thank you. Namaste.
I just wanted to personally thank you for founding the website and making such good quality yoga instruction available in the home. I have struggled with anxiety and OCD and after completing a month of videos on your website I feel like a new person. I’m doing better at work, more in control of my moods, and the meditations help keep me calm and focused. I want to say thank you so, so much for everything you’re doing and let you know that you have changed my life and I’m so grateful! I tell everyone that will listen about your website and how amazing it is. You’re doing a wonderful thing!
Hello, I would be remiss if I began to enjoy this wonderful site and not thank you from the bottom of my heart. My family have had come upon some very difficult times due to illness, death, and other challenges. Aside from the mental strain that it has been, it has also been a financial one. One of the first things I gave up was caring for myself and cutting out my yoga classes. The new year brought with me the determination to get back to caring for me and immersing myself back into my yoga. Shopping for classes was disheartening, even online. The price of classes and the commercial aspect of some yoga services online really turned me off. Then I found your site. It is too good to be true that I thought certainly I must be dreaming - there must be a catch, but there is not. It is wonderful and beautiful, and true. I guarantee you that I will pay what I can each time I benefit from one of your beautiful classes. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Namaste
Dear David, Thank you so much for this site. As a person with limited means that loves and believes in the practice of yoga, Do Yoga With Me allows me to maintain my practice and experience phenomenal teachers that I otherwise would not have access to. Although my donations are nominal and inconsistent it is what I can do to show my gratitude, appreciation and support for this site of such value that you're giving away for free. I am truly grateful! Sincerely,
Dear David, Fiji. Rachel, Tracey and all those who put so much into DYWM: I live in Saldanha, very nearly halfway round the world from Victoria BC, on a very different West Coast to yours. We are 120km north of Cape Town in the Western Cape, South Africa. We don't have a yoga studio in our small town. Although I have been privileged to work with some wonderful teachers in nearby cities, in the 8 years since I moved here to farm oysters with my husband I have wanted to practice at home but have never found the discipline, nor felt competent to do asanas correctly. I discovered your marvelous site 3 months ago, and I can't tell you how much I appreciate being able to tune in to so many very different and wonderful teachers at home. For the first time in my life, I am able to bring my practice home and truly into my life, so that I can feel the connections unique to yoga every day. We live on the shore of Saldanha Bay and I sometimes do your classes looking out at sunrise over the waters of the Atlantic and thinking how this somehow unites me with the settings of many of your beach or garden videos. Ours is a far from perfect world, but it is made much better by the links you are building with your philosophy. If some of us can start our days this way, perhaps we can distribute just a little of your light, calm and generosity through the lives of those we know. Namaste, every day, to each of you. Bless you, bless the spirit of what you do.
Dearest David My husband Carl made a donation to your site a few weeks ago and we received your thank you e-mail. I just wanted to let you know how very much I appreciate your site and the wonderful classes to choose from. I am a yoga teacher myself and my daily practice is a special treat being able to select a class suited to how I'm feeling and what I need each day. Bless you and your team for sharing this and may you all grow from strength to strength knowing how much you're giving to people out there. We live in Cape Town , South Africa and it's quite amazing how the internet has made it possible for you guys to be changing lives across the globe. I'm hoping to soon be a monthly donor . Many blessings for the festive season ahead and all the very best for 2015. Love and light
A friend suggested DoYogaWithMe when I was rehabbing after a knee injury. I got a lot from their Yoga For Athletes section. I've taken classes focusing on increasing the flexibility of the IT band and had great results. I've also done some of their Yoga For Runners classes, and have seen a decrease in soreness and injury frequency as a result. The level of instruction is excellent and comparable with sites that charge to view their videos. Basically, DoYogaWithMe rocks. Thanks, David, Fiji, and the rest of the team.
Like many of the other testimonials, I just wanted to take the time to thank you for this wonderful website. It is a breath of fresh air compared to all of the other monthly subscription sites and the quality of the instruction is outstanding. I usually practice yoga late at night and I already feel transformed by the access to such great videos, which I can watch anytime. I have made a donation to the site (which I NEVER do!) and encourage others to do the same. I have also forwarded the site to all my friends who have already started using it too. Thank you again. It is absolutely brilliant!
Hello David and others! I just have to say that this website has really helped change my life. I have always loved doing yoga, but wanted to start my own practice at home. I have yet to find another website that has such great videos and instruction...AND YOUR VIDEOS ARE FREE. You really are doing a service to SO MANY PEOPLE, I cannot express how grateful I am for your site. I just saw your programs tab as well, and am so excited to start a program! At this moment, as a recent graduate searching for work, I do not have much to give, but I will donate, even a little, because you all deserve it. Such wonderful instruction, and the motive behind your work is really to just spread the love of yoga and the beautiful calm lifestyle that comes with it. Thank you so much, and keep on keepin' on, because you are changing lives.
Hello David. I signed up on your site fairly recently, after a fair length of time on yogoTV and just felt ready for a change. I have really enjoyed the classes I have discovered, but tonight signed up for "Beginner to Intermediate" and just wanted you to know how amazing an experience it has been having just completed the first class. Everything - the setting, the music, the sequences, the voice of instruction - all worked so beautifully together. It was an amazing class. I have attended studios all over the world, retreats, practise regularly at home now... and this was a joy. Looking forward to tomorrow! Sincerely,
I love love love your site and all the teachers that I have practiced with thus far. I have recommended it to all my friends who do yoga (or not) as a really solid place to learn yoga practices at all levels that are comprehensive, safe, and well cued. I am just started my YTT 200 hour training at age 67 to deepen my own practice as I age and to share with others of my age and older, as well as my Let Your Yoga Dance practice. As part of my training for the training, aside from my local yoga teacher, I have been doing yoga with you and some of the other teachers since last Winter. I have learned so many new things, especially about entering the postures, making adjustments based on the verbal cues and breathing. I wish I lived on the West Coast, as I'd be traveling up to BC to take some classes. It is truly a fantastic service to others, and I so appreciate it. I want to support this and I hope others do as well. Kind regards, Namaste,
