Your videos are each so well thought out and with such precise alignment detail that I feel an ease in each posture. I come back to this practice often, and enjoy the instruction, the sequence and the awesome peace that the meditation brings. Thank you so much! dg

I have practiced for 6 years, and for the first time since I began, have fallen out of practice for the last 6 months. I began again today with you, and it felt wonderful. Thank you!

Welcome back to the mat! After six years, I'll bet you still have some flexibility in the savings account. :-) No doubt you'll be back up to speed in no time.

Thank you for practicing.

Awesome practice. Feeling refreshed and calm. Could not do the standing balancing poses as I have a left ankle issue currently, so I modified that segment of the practice. Otherwise was perfect for me.

This was the video I picked to do in the late afternoon of a Sunday when I still have things to do - to energize, yet calm myself. I was not disappointed. Thank you.

Thanks for doing a practice with a variety of student levels :) It really encouraged me to stay with the poses and reminded me that even small improvements are successes. You're very articulate, I'll definitely be taking more of your classes!

This is perfect for just the right amount of stretch if you can't make it to a practise. Really great Teacher, I found myself correcting my posture as he spoke.. brilliant

sveltshel, posted on January 31, 2014

Great practice, I especially enjoyed the meditation at the end. I really appreciate your clear verbal instructions. You get that we're not in the room with you, and are watching from a computer monitor. It's difficult to be in a pose, always having to crane your neck to see what's happening next. Thank you!

GillMitch2, posted on January 29, 2014

a wonderful workout - a god pace to practice along with. cheers david x

noelmanes, posted on January 24, 2014

Thank you for a wonderful practice, although I could not really hear the audio!

@Hunter3 My pleasure!

Hunter3, posted on December 10, 2013

@pranavayu @pranavayu now I know why all the comments below say how great you are. I will practice with your suggestions and definitely let you know how I make out. Thank you so much!

pranavayu, posted on December 10, 2013

@Hunter3 Hi Letizia!

If the posture hurts your knees, you should definitely avoid it and instead focus on strengthening postures for your quads - thinks like utkatasana or warrior II.

That said, if your knees feel o.k. while practicing, you might consider sitting on a couple of blocks to learn the motion. Doing so will allow you to experience the final position without the threat of falling over. Once you get the feel for it, you can practice pressing down through your standing foot to take just a little weight off the blocks, and once that is stable, you can begin practicing with no extra support at all.

Let me know how it goes!

@catgirl74 @kdonchak @Solara @Vasaart Thanks everyone!

Hunter3, posted on December 9, 2013

Loved this practice. The best part was that your cues were so exact that I never had to look at my ipad for direction. One question .... I want so badly to work my way to doing your "russian skater" pose, how do I build up to that. Finding that my knees are very weak... any suggestions? Thanks again!

Solara, posted on December 2, 2013

What a wonderful class....thankyou so much. Feeling so centered, connected and at peace.

Vasaart, posted on November 27, 2013

Wonderful instruction - so clear I rarely had to look at the video to follow, which meant I could focus more on the postures.

kdonchak, posted on November 21, 2013

Love your classes. Your ability to remind us why we practice is a wonderful way to begin my day.

carolyn.cbutt, posted on November 20, 2013

This is a wonderful practice. This is one of the best experiences I have had with online Yoga videos. I fee so nice right now.

@danibomb Thanks for practicing Dani!

@montlake Hi Montlake! I jokingly refer to that one as the Russian ice-skaters pose. I'm sure that someone has given it a more official sounding sanskrit name, but I rather like that one.

When I practice, I always keep my supporting foot flat on the floor. I'm sure that it's possible to do it on the ball of the foot, but that's a little too adventurous for me. :-)

@darci611 Thank you Darci! I can definitely get you a hardcopy . Send me a message at http://www.pranavayu.com.

@Benisha All right Benisha! I'm so glad that we were able to connect online. It sounds like you're on a beautiful journey, and I'm so glad that yoga has played a part!

Thank you David xoxo

montlake, posted on August 24, 2013

I have a question. There was a pose where you stood on the ball of one foot and had the other leg out straight and then you held on to the foot with both hands and stood up and sat back down. Firstly, when I am trying to stand up should I be on the ball of my foot or on a flat foot? Secondly, does this interesting and challenging pose have a name? Thanks!

darci611, posted on August 23, 2013

Another fabulous session! Your teaching style is extremely encouraging and really diminishes any frustration! It is wonderful how you praise the minimal pose but also suggest pushing to a more challenging pose when the time is right! Your voice/accent has a really calming effect too...I believe you are in the right field! :) I really enjoy My Yoga Online but just in case I am unable to connect, I'd love to have a DVD on hand! Do you have a website with DVD purchasing options?

Benisha, posted on August 21, 2013

Really loved your lesson and practice. I have been trying to create/find the person I want to be,and I really find that this practice was very helpful. Calming,and a good stretch and workout, and lovely meditation. You have a wonderfully calm voice, and living in Japan, hearing another American accent is very comforting. Thank you :D

@MyMichele237Thanks so much Michelle! Be sure to look me up if you're ever back in New England! It would be great to meet in person.
