Yoga can improve your coordination and flexibility, and help you access a calmer state of mind. If you don't have a block, try a thick book. If you don't have a blanket, use a beach towel.
Even for a not so true beginner, the cues in this class are awesome reminders. I felt like this was a great mental workout as well as an awesome stretch session! Loved it!
If you, like I, have chronic mid-back pain - I recommend this class! Not too much down-dog which can be painful and challenging for me. The way David brings you into down-dog and by the time he gets you there- well, for the first time I didn't experience any pain. Fantastic instruction, perfect pace for perfecting a pose without over taxing the muscular strength of a beginner.
Great class! Good reminders on form!
Just wanted to let you know I truly enjoy the way you slowed down and gave me more explanations as to how the energy flows withing each pose. Sometimes in classes we do not have time to ask questions. Thank you!
Thorough instructions. it starts out slow but builds into a well rounded class. Served well for a class to share with my beginner partner and myself (more experienced).
I really liked the detailed instructions for coming into all the poses. Do you have any suggestions for wrist pain when doing cat-cow pose?
Perfect for beginners with enough movement to break a sweat.
I feel stronger and more relaxed at the same time!
Long but good stretching.
Now, this is a practice that is perfect for a true beginner! It builds slowly, modifications are demonstrated and encouraged. Gentle and Thorough, this is a great foundational practice. Thank you, David!
