David tells us everything he knows - too much to take in - just too much...
Slower and not a ton of heat in the yang/vinyasa portion. Felt weighed down by a lot of instruction and talking throughout, especially during yin. Ended feeling relaxed but not at all energized.
Perfect combination of Yang and Yin. I feel very relaxed now.
I know I would have loved this class, but after taking 2 hours to get through 37 minutes of class, I can’t wait any longer. Can you do something about your network problems? I’m SO disappointed!
Hmm I didn't have any issues, I wonder if it was just a temporary website problem or possibly your own network? I hope you have better luck next time!
This was a really fun and diverse class; my first Yang and Ying; I loved the instructions, but agree a little less talking during Yin would have been even better, but totally appreciate David's wisdom and guidance throughout. Will do this again!
I will definitely repeat this session, I need both strengthening and stretching. Thank you David
I keep coming back to this practice since back a few years ago. Amazing balance, sequencing, walk through. Really do look forward to more yin-yang classes from David Kim, please!!!!
This is a great class but I couldn’t make it through. Not because it was too difficult but because the teacher would not stop talking. When holding sleeping pigeon for 3 minutes on each side it would be nice to have silence. I want to be able to relax into the pose but the teacher yammered on and on all 3 minutes on each side talking pretty much about nothing. Just be quiet and allow us to enjoy the silence. I had to stop the class after that.
I think this might be one my favorite classes that I’ve taken so far since I’ve gotten my subscription! Love the yin-inertia comment he made. I am going to use that in yin classes.
perfect combination of yin and yang. thank you
This was a slower practice than most of the vinyasa, cardio style classes. But slower certainly wasn't easier. Slowing it down and holding poses longer was more intense. I wonder if that's why some people thought it was too chatty. I didn't find it to be more talkative than the other classes. Maybe they were hoping David would talk less so they could get out of the pose faster. I'm saving this to my playlist and coming back to it again.
As someone who can't stand too much talking in a class, I actually found his amount of talking to be ok. He didn't interrupt the flow, and his cues were very helpful. This is a great class for transitioning out of injury recovery or whenever chaturanga isn't in the cards...almost ready for vinyasa but not quite yet.
This is a feel-good class. David's talk is informative and insightful, and his voice his soothing and pleasant. Definitely one of my favorites classes here.
Enjoyed the variations in reclining Buddha
Yes, David does talk a lot in this sequence and most of his classes. I find it more helpful than distracting, I don't have to look at the screen to know what's going on and I can focus on his voice which helps me relax and get out of my head. If you're not into that, don't take the class but you're missing out! It didn't feel like a 77 minute class to me - so many good strength poses and delicious yin for the second half. I love that he actually times postures, in a lot of his other yin classes he doesn't do this for both sides. The full 5 minute savasana was amazing and I was able to actually relax into it instead of worrying that the class had ended without a prompt or was about to end too soon. Definitely a new favorite!
I had to bail 12 minutes in.... just couldn't handle the constant babble.
David is wonderful. My partner and I have tried a number of his classes and this one balancing Yin and Yang is exactly what we were looking for. Thank you, David!
I understand people's feelings about David's talking, I do. But for me, I find his talking during yin classes extremely helpful. I suffer from severe anxiety, and if I sit for too long in silence I start to panic. Having something in the background to focus on mentally allows me to completely relax physically.
Nice blend of the yang and the yin...only issue is that he talks a LOT, wish they offered a variation of this practice with less talking as the sequence and the asanas are delightful.
I enjoyed the class. The yang portion was deliberately paced, not too quick so I could fully experience the posture and the yin sequence was very nourishing and one or two of the postures were unique. David is firm and compassionate, cues were clear and precise. Thank you, Bravo. I also saved this one as a favorite.
This was a great class combining strength (yang) and stretching for longer periods (yinertia - coined!). It's rare to find a focus on both, hence the 1:17 minute video. Loved the 5 minute savasana at the end.
He really talks too much. It would be a little more involving if he would give less talking and more direction as in"into navasana".
Nice class but not 17 minutes but rather an hour and 17 minutes. Still quite nice - a good mix. I enjoy David's classes.
i really enjoyed this practice. great way to balance out yang practices. I found that all the poses were really longer holds and it was less of a vinyasa style class.
i really found the constant talking distracting......also didnt find the vinyasa part was that challenging - it was quiet slow.
