Tune into your breath and body with part four of Dan's series that focuses on your practice.

Why do people suggest more talking in a
"Less talking" class?

Dan, this class is the best! Deep, opening, strong and meditative. The silence is bliss...

Karen B.

-

I've done these classes so many times. They are wonderful! We can use a few more "less talking" classes, from Dan and from other instructors.

I love these classes. Thoughtful with minimal verbal cues to allow the me to drop in and explore the poses on my own. This is exactly what I've been seeking for in pre-recorded classes. Thanks Dan, I'd love to see more of these!

So many thoughts on this class right now. First, I had no idea my body could do so many of these moves. (Although I am sure I did not do them well). Second, I loved it! I loved the pace. It was peaceful yet challenging. Third, I am not sure how I feel about so little instruction. I realized that I do know more than I would have given myself credit for, but I still doubt myself and would have liked a bit more guidance to make sure I was getting the most out of the poses.
Overall, great class though

Thank you, Dan! More, please! :)

Amanda J.

Great class and sequencing, tho I think I like a little bit more talking :).

Lise S.

-

My favorite myw class so far! So peaceful. The poses I didn't know, I was able to figure out from the models.

Jennifer W.

-

Thanks, Dan, for the gift of gentleness and silence in these Less Talking, More Doing classes. They have become my favorites! I will incorporate a few of your unique asanas into my own teaching. Your sequencing is wonderful!

Anne K.

-

Thank you so much. Very happy that I discovered this Less Talking series. Agree w others’ comments about breath benefits. Thank you!!

Cathleen M.

-

Great class for me

Kate S.

-

I absolutely loved all Less Talking, More Doing series. I was able to really focus on my breath and in developing firmness and stillness. Thank you!!

Maria E.

-

Good class with good poses but I prefer more guidance for positions. I found myself struggling to figure out how to transition into poses or modify them. If you like minimal interruptions, this class is totally silent besides him saying “go to this pose.”

Lee F.

-

Great class to start my day with. Lots of twists and stretches

Stephanie W.

-

Great class for a weekend morning.

Lisa D.

-

I thought I might feel lost without all of the extra cues, but the minimal cues were actually a nice change. I feel refreshed and energized. I want to check out more of Dan's classes.

Malinda L.

-

I loved the quiet instruction of this beautifully sequenced solid-level-2 class. What a stress reliever!

Holly M.

-

The upper back focus of this class is bliss. Thank you Dan for adding years to my life. I also love this series and would like to see a few more longer classes as well. We are thankful for you, Dan. Namaste.

M. W.

-

So grateful for this class. Calm, strong, with minimal talking.. instruction/cueing (ideal for a level 2 practice.) Wish more teachers would follow this true yogic path. I've done this before and would love to have a 60 minute class. Thank you, Dan.

Varsha S.

-

Great class! This is one of the very few ones in which I can hear my own breath while practicing. Please do more of these.

Ariel J.

-

I am joining the consensus. This is yet another awesome l
"less talking..." practice. Glad it's longer than the previous 3 in this series and looking forward to the 60 minute class.. Dan, please?

Patrizia M.

-

I also would love to have more in this series, especially 45 minutes - an hour, and I really appreciate it when the instructor is there through the sabasana, like in this one.

Theresa M.

-

Thank you, Dan, for your calm and encouraging yet minimal instruction. I love this series - it's the perfect mix of well-known poses and some to challenge you. It is a mark of a mature and insightful yoga instructor that you do not have to instruct all the time. Please do some more!

Frances C.

-

It is such a calming yet challenging class. Especially enjoyed the closing which was smooth transition from the deeper challenging poses. Will re do this class in future.

Juhee J.

-

Awesome class. Gets right into the business. Will be doing this one on the regular.

John A.

-

I have been practicing for 34 years and am 72 years old. just when I thought I had lost my binds, Dan found them again! Even found bird--on one side. Thanks

Deborah D.

-

I really appreciate this series. The lack of talking is calming and the poses are challenging but doable. Please do more of this series.

Kayce B.

-

All of Dan's classes are so unique and creative. I am a retired gymnast and love the challenge that always come with his yoga classes. His classes keep you in the moment and help you tune in and check out.

Braden D.

-

I didn’t realize how distracting the talking is on many of the videos until I did this class. It makes it so much easier to focus on the breath and poses to just have the simple cues given. Thank you!

Jolene K.

-

Love this class. Challenging, stretchy and relaxing (his voice is so calming!)

Paige S.

-

I'd only done Dan's meditations but loved this class. Loved all the binds and poses you don't see as often.

Emily H.

-

agreed

Braden D.

-

My second less talking practice with Dan and did not disappoint! It is calm and challenging. I really enjoy and appreciate his level presence and simple guidance. Agree that a teeny bit more instruction for the arm binds would be helpful as I had to pause and rewind in order to watch and try to replicate. Also agree a bit tough on the shoulders (chronic old sports injury) but def worth it and worth repeating.

Yvonne H.

-

Just discovered Dan's classes the other day and am loving them. So minimal. And yet challenging...! Bound half-moon??? LOL. As if. Still, fun to try. Not as bendy as I used to be but who cares. Great classes! More classes, longer classes!! We're all in quarantine so we've all got time...

alia m.

-

Wonderful sequence and the lack of constant correcting cues made me self scan to improve the pose. Genius. Thank you.

Dorit K.

-

I totally agree with this - it gave me a chance to run through my own checklist of corrections. Dan is a genius!

Carrie G.

-

Thank you, Dan. Great class for an experienced practitioner. I found that I had a lot of space to experiment with movement and alignment in a way that felt a lot freer than when a teacher gives a bunch of different options. Love the gradual pace, and my shoulders feel amazing. More "Less talking, more doing" at this length and longer, please!

Sydni A.

-

Glad I found you, Dan! Great sequence. Effortless teaching !

Riza M.

-

This is the best format - quiet, strong and with super graceful examples by the class members!

Jeannette W.

-

really love less talking...it let me focus on my own breath and helped with the phrase that teachers often use, " this is your practice"

Angela B.

-

Not an easy class by any means. Good luck with some of the poses!

Tad K.

-

Very challenging peak poses for me- and was very engaged by uniqueness of the series. Unusual combo of twisting flexibility and strength. Nice quietude in guidance.... and there were a few moments I could have used more words to figure out where what arm goes when : ) lol!

Star U.

-

I truly wish all of the Intermediate classes were quieter, like this one. Strong & challenging, but delightful and minimal instruction. First time I have ever seen or attempted half moon binded. The "good luck" comment made me chuckle! Thank you, Dan, for such a wonderful class!

Amie M.

-

Lovely class! Quiet and introspective but also challenging. Dan is new to me and I'm excited to check out the rest of his series. Just what I needed this morning. Thank you!

Jana B.

-

This was a really calming class. It's not a flow class, however it's really gets into the stretching of hips and shoulders with a lot of binds.

Cheryl R.

-

This was a very interesting class with different types of poses & transitions. There is a lot of binding so if you have shoulder issues like me, just beware.

Kristi C.

-

Shall do this again

Sanju D.

-

I love this series and i enjoyed this sequence. Please keep making more of this series!

Bridget T.

-

I liked very much this class! Thanks

Ana L.

-

Thank you for a great practice! Calm and introspective while challenging the body.
