I've tried several yoga classes over the years and with DFD, I've had instructors come over and move my body into position but never actually TELL ME where things should be. This makes so much sense now and clarifies things. Thank you
Thank you!

After decades of (intermittent) yoga practice, I love learning things from these "beginner" tutorials. Thank you!

I have trouble going into child's pose . My stomach gets in the way. Any suggestions on the best way to modify?
I thought I was strong

This is my first time doing downward dog with good form, and my arms got tired! I'm surprised!
Question About Head Position
M Lewis - -
When in DFD should the head be held up or let go? I think mine is going too much into a bad posture neck (curved inward.) Thanks.
New Tips
M Lewis - -
In the many many yoga classes I've taken I've never heard about rotating the upper outer arms in or pulling the upper thighs tight. Thanks!

This is the imperative video for the foundation! Very informative!

OK, I think I'm getting it now. The very slow, step by step, very descriptive narrative helped out a lot. Once I was in Downward Dog I couldn't watch the screen a lot, but the verbal description helped keep me focused on the changes needed. Well done!
Great tutorials for beginners

I learned from Melanies tutorials, then had a one to one yoga session at home and asked the teacher if I was doing downward dog correctly. She said it was perfect - Melanie has taught me well!
