I decided I needed a break from my usual high intensity workouts (with just an occasional yoga practice) and flip my formula around....meaning mostly yoga and meditation with an occasional cardio/strength workout. In doing so, I've sought out David's practices as I've found them to be so clear, beautiful, and meditative as well as stretching and strengthening. This one did not disappoint. Thank you for making it feel as though I was in the class itself...I'm so grateful.
Namaste to you and all sentient beings.

You are a gift to everyone who engages with you.
Thankyou :-)

My internet connection was so bad today that the video got stuck several times but luckily the audio went on and that was perfect. The instructions are so clear that the audio is enough to do the all class. thank you again for your wonderful classes.

An awesome practice. I really feel like a million bucks after this. I modified some more advanced weight bearing postures as I have an ankle issue currently.

Sophia! That's awesome. I hope that your ankle is well on the way to recovery.

I really appreciate the meditations that you have in your practices. I find it very challenging to have a significant meditation on my own. With that said, I would love to know if you have any 90 minute classes streaming. My physical body really craves at least an hour of asana practice to really get warm, but I know my mind/heart is in need of attention too.

Thank you,

Hi there!

I'm sorry for my belated reply to your question. I'm really glad that you've been enjoying the videos and appreciate that you took the time to write!

At present, I haven't filmed any full 90 minute classes. The closest is my "Intermediate Practice" video. I think that it comes in at around 75 minutes total.

I was filming artsy at the time and filmed it in black and white, so it should stand out from my other videos when you're looking for it. :-)

Happy practicing!

All round pratice and superb instructions as always with you David.
Again, did not need to look at the video.
Thank you, namasté

Thank you! Great to see you again. :-) Thanks so much for trying out some of these different videos.

what a great class. The best instruction. Did not even need to look at the video. Thanks!!!!!

sabineschulte, posted on July 30, 2014

WOW….what an amazing class!!!! Perfectly set together and guided! Thank you so much, David! After this class I indeed feel like "A million bucks"…..just as you predicted! :-) ;-) OM Shanti! Namaste!

Hope14, posted on July 29, 2014

Amazing, thank you David! For the first time I felt like I was in a real class! and your instruction is fantastic! Just one question, any tips for increasing flexibility in super tight hamstrings? I found the forward bends and any leg straightening difficult to reach where you were suggesting! Thanks again, Namaste!

pranavayu, posted on October 7, 2014

Hi Hope,

I just saw your comment, so my apologies on the slowness of my response!

I would recommend that you use a strap when forward folding. Simply wrap around your feet and walk your hands down the strap itself. If you get to the point where you either have to really bend your legs or round your back to stretch, back off on your grip a bit and find an intensity level that will allow for straight legs and a straight spine. After a while your hammies will loosen up and you'll be able to walk your hands further down the strap.

Hope that helps!

I'm a yoga teacher and absolutely love your practices. I like that you don't rush through the poses. You are super detailed in your instruction and ah...the breath work is super awesome!! Thank you.

Another wonderful class, thank you, David. I love your detailed instructions, unrushed style of teaching, and especially your relaxation techinques. Om shanti.

Hey thanks Alex! It's great that you're going to take on a three week challenge, and I'm glad that I'll be able to play a part in it. Be sure to let me know what you discover along the way!

livingtolearn, posted on July 23, 2012

Loved this practice! I have decided to start a three week challenge, beginning with this one. I am excited to see what changes in flexibility and strength and toning are in store. I just love your practices, thank you David, they are a blessing. Wish me luck!

davidmagone, posted on July 20, 2012

Thanks so much Pierce and Kaneki!

davidmagone, posted on July 20, 2012

Hi Barbinha,

I'm so glad to hear that you'll be doing the 3 week challenge! Repetition is the mother of transformation!

It's really great to hear about your success with the practices.

Have fun!

piercearrow33, posted on July 8, 2012

Another excellent video by David.

Kaneki, posted on July 5, 2012

Thank you for this...exactly what I needed...yes, needed. I love your classes. Namaste.

Barbinha, posted on July 2, 2012

This is the second 3-week-challenge I am taking on, and I just wanted to tell you that I simply love your classes, David! This one is quite a challenging one, with some of the poses I have never done before, but your directions are so clear that it is no problem to follow, it almost feels like being part of the class! Thank you so much for your dedication! The balance in your classes between breathing exercise, poses, and meditation, is the perfect start for a successful day. And I feel my body has already improved so much in flexibility and toning, it is amazing! Namaste!

davidmagone, posted on June 29, 2012

Thank you Kate! I'm sorry to hear that things have been stressful, but I'm glad that the videos are helping you work through it. I'm always so thankful to be able to know how to move and breathe when something stressful pops up. Isn't it amazing to see how quickly you can let go of stress with some yoga?

KateTT, posted on June 29, 2012

Wow David, another amazing practice. I had a hard core workout planned today, but also have not done any Yoga for three days. Yoga won. I feel so good! My job has been stressful lately and this was perfect to de-stress and yet give my body a little toning and motion. I am totally enjoying your practices and thank you!

davidmagone, posted on April 22, 2012

Esther! How ya been? I love the picture of you and your little one! I miss seeing you in class, but I'm glad that you'll be practicing along with these videos.

I'll look forward to the next time we meet!

evmackenzie, posted on April 22, 2012

I am so happy to have found this! I used to be able to go to class multiple times a week but since becoming a working mom, it's become increasingly difficult to find the time. I'll definitely be making room in my daily schedule for these videos! Thanks David!

DreamOcean, posted on February 5, 2012

So very nice... I've enjoyed immensely and done this 2 days in a row (which is saying a lot for me since I tend to prefer switching things up all of the time). David, I'm going to go for your suggested 3 week series of practices starting tomorrow and am looking forward to it! I'll let you know how it goes but already I love how holistic your flows are not just with asanas but the breathing and guided meditation. Salama (peace!)

davidmagone, posted on January 15, 2012

Good to hear! The six ranges of motion that I mentioned are in reference to the spine. They consist of flexion, extension, lateral flexion to the right and to the left as well as rotation to the right and left. All of our accelerated practices begin with stretches to open these ranges.

cmartinez1584, posted on January 15, 2012

Oh Man I feel so good after this! Thanks David! What are the 6 ranges of motion you were speaking of?

All ready for a busy day full of Christmas prep.

I really love the way David teaches. I have enjoyed all of your sessions very much and even experienced poses I've never done before - that's always fun! Keep up the great work and thank you so much for making yourself available on My Yoga Online! Stefanie from Bend, OR

Good Practice, I"ll be trying your other sessions. I really like your explanation of things as I move from pose to pose.

AmyOBarYoga, posted on September 20, 2011

This is a practice for the morning when you are not fully awake yet. David guides you through several poses that develop strength and flexibility, but he manages to do it in a way that is gentle and relaxing. Plus he wishes peace to all sentient beings at the end. *Long corpse pose finishes the practice.

davidmagone, posted on September 16, 2011

Nice work Elba!

elba, posted on September 14, 2011

Hi Jackie and David, I finished the program two days late. I have been traveling in Mexico for work and the internet connection in the hotels were not the best. So I couldn't play the videos. I finished late, but better late than never! It was wonderful to have practiced with you, communicating with you through MYO! But, it will take a very long time before I too can do that side crane pose and a few others, but I'm ok with that. Tonight I'll try the Full Body Strengthing and Toning video. Thank you David!
