I always love David Kim classes...this one is awesome but I feel the end was missing...maybe they can edit it and add a release and final poses to this. Still a nice class. Thanks a lot.

Having done strength training for YEARS, the only yoga that interested me when I started was ashtanga. I bought videos but mostly just used a pose guide. Ashtanga seems to assume the practitioners have advanced past the need for any basic instruction. Now, 10 years into my practice, I discover I've been doing chaturanga wrong. The result is a misaligned collarbone. I wish I had availed myself to some videos with remedial intruction ages ago. I would have a healthier practice today.

I enjoyed practicing this pose. I love David and have taken and take a lot of his classes. I do wish that there was less talking though. I feel, especially in a level 3 class, there is no need to keep going over the basics. Although I am not 'in a rush' or trying to push, I enjoy a good flow and the feeling of release, when there is too much talking I feel 'stuck' in he pose and forced to be a captive audience. Sorry.

Thank you David, your teaching style is calm, compassionate and concise. Really enjoyed the class and found myself able to do things I haven't quite been able to do before.

Great instruction, very informed. I love hip and shoulder openers. A quick counter stretch hip extension after the video was the cherry on top. Thank you!

Thanks for your lovely pointer. I could get my kurmasana with my legs narrower than mat width apart. It was just how to start it that did the trick.
