Stretch and strengthen your hips and glutes with this quick class that will leave you feeling balanced and strong. Recommended props: 1 block, 1 blanket
this is, as David notes upfront, more like physical therapy for hips/glutes
than yoga – good if that's what you're looking for
I liked this class but theres just waaaaay too much talking and not enough doing. It's a bit of a snooze. I want to feel energized not go to bed.
Challenging and innovative. David Kim is a great teacher.
In order to get the most out of this class, you really need to follow the instructions closely, otherwise you will miss the muscle isolation that David so clearly cues.
I love this class. Excellent instructions.
I loved this class! I have had issues with my hips being tight and unstable for years, and am so happy I stumbled upon this course to help improve the strength of my hips. I am hyper-mobile and this class was perfect in its approach.
I liked few asanas very much, like the one standing on the block...it is more of a therapeutic class but interesting to be done in easy days. I liked it. Thanks David.
It's very slow, too slow. He talks through most of it and doesn't get to much yoga. I found that he talked through inhaling and exhaling but not at all in sync with how someone would actually breathe and I couldn't sync the moves to the breathe like he was saying because he was moving too slow.
I really enjoyed this class. I have some lower back pain issues and wanted to work on strengthening my hips and glutes and this class was perfect. It reminded me a bit of Pilates and moves that look deceptively easy, but if you are doing them correctly, definitely work. There are some very challenging postures, like the low yogi squat and twist, and the balancing on one leg for quite a long time. And the abs work. It was pretty much what I was expecting and I enjoyed it and it helped me with my low back pain. I though the explanation was also needed, as without getting the postures correc, because they are small movements, you won’t be doing them correctly.
Very clear but not challenging enough to feel the intention of the practice.
I love to see kundalini here online.
Helped me so much with my muscle pain I was having. Thank you!
He talks too much and not much yoga.
I would say this is good for someone very new to yoga. It was not very difficult and I agree with some of the other reviews that it was very slow.
Too much chatting.
Was a workout passive yoga class ... ideal to mix with some vinyasa practice
Way too slow. Too wordy as well.
This class was perfect. The glutes are needed to support the hip and lumbar joints. Without strong glutes, a practitioner can get injured in a yoga class. Plus, all the receptive forward folding, just ove-rstretches the glutes, and weakens them even more. Well done David for actually teaching, instead of just leading a class filled with poses that have no purpose. David is trying to build strong yogis, not hypermobile bodies that are more prone to destabilization. As a yoga teacher, I support this practise.
Totally agree with laurel. This class is way too slow and he doesn't spend equal amount of time on each side.
I usually love David's classes but this one is too slow. 10 minutes in and I feel like I've done nothing but get frustrated :(
Block is mandatory, not optional to do this class. I'm fifteen minutes through, and blanket seems pretty necessary too.
Sorry David, I couldn't go past the beginning. Too much talking, too slow, not enough movement, sort of boring :(
I have sciatica and my Physical Therapist said I needed to work on my butt muscles, this class helped. I also worked up a sweat.

Work on strengthening the side glutes, also known as the gluteus medius and minimus. Weakness in this area can cause lower back pain and knee instability.
Focus solely on your glutes and abs, which are muscles we need to strengthen to stabilize all of our poses. Did you know we have an entire Yoga Butt Journey Series? Recommended props: 1 block, 1 blanket
Firm and tone those glutes in this fun class that moves. Suggested props: resistance band, 2 small weights
