I absolutely agree Angelina! Jesse it is a pleasure practicing your classes. I also have a fitness background and think it is unequivocally important to understand the biomechanics and perform yoga with proper alignment. Not to mention to understand the exercise science and I think that is missed a lot of the time. Truly inspiring to see such a knowledgeable teacher - and you have a knack for explaining it all too!

Jesse I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your classes. You are an excellent teacher. The explanations of body mechanics throughout the class is very helpful especially when doing yoga at home where you don't benefit from the teacher correcting your posture.

Really great for beginners and non-beginners to get back to the basics, great instruction and attitude!

I enjoyed how thorough his instruction was, responsibly deconstructing the sun salutation. Thank you for deepening my yoga experience, at times we have to be patient with its understanding to intensify it during regular practice... Namaste

i have begun a journey with you. I am a stay at home mom and my intention is to take one class every day. Analyze it and learn from it. I am glad to start this journey with you. I know I will come back to this class often to be reminded of where to place my breath during my practice and to enjoy my movement. Thanks, I look forward to learning more from you.

I didn't like this video. A lot of talking, little useful instruction. Why not just do proper sun salutations and explain the alignment in the pose and adaptation for beginners, otherwise don't call your video Sun Salutation, give it another name.

Way too much instruction! We had not even started moving by minute 9, not what I am looking for in such a short sequence. ... This should be more clearly marked for beginners...

wow . . . I, too, remember Jesse at Downward Dog in Toronto (along with Ron, Diane, and Teresa :^) . . . how inspiring to see how he has fully embodied his practice . . . thank you so much for the reminder to practice with compassion toward ourselves and with a softness . . . this is a beautiful and thorough teaching of Surya Namaskar. Thank you for your care, Jesse.

Jesse - you were my first teacher at Downward Dog in Toronto years ago. Great to be able to take a class with you again!

I like his videos. Can I ask for a video addressing twists and how to perform these safely to avoid disk problems or to allow some of us to adapt movements to avoid disk irritation. Thank you.
