I did a really strong upper body practice yesterday, so this was the perfect way to start today. Like a soothing balm, with some gorgeous deep hip openers. Thank you Rodney. You rock!

What's up? It's been a week. Nothing is working. Can't watch anything. When is it REALLY going to be fixed?

I love RY voice....The only thing I can say is that I wish the sequence was longer..and a little more advanced...I jut stopped the video and did my inversions and some other asanas..Then went on with the rest of the video...Merci!

I've been attempting to play my Rodney Yee videos tonight with no success. Playback option is gone. Please advise.

bcblessing, posted on August 28, 2014

I have the same photo of Yee with a beautiful background instead of the video for all 5 A.M. segments. I don't have this problem with any other videos, including his other ones.

When I try to select this video, the play icon disappears and it's just a photo! Help!

jandc96, posted on March 8, 2014

just did with my 16 yr old son! I can only get him to do yoga if it is with Rodney Yee because he likes to listen to him and the video is not too long. I hope he enjoys these videos and will return to yoga as an adult ! Great way to start a Saturday morning

hannah.boullion, posted on February 22, 2014

loved this episode. my whole body is open and at ease and my back feels amazing.

annefranceskelly, posted on February 18, 2014

I enjoyed this one, not too difficult for my old knees!

tlos53, posted on November 18, 2013

I have watched this video several times, yet today I cannot get it to open, Please fix asap, Rodney Yee is on of my favorite teachers. Thanks.

This is a great sequence but every time I use it, it freezes at least once, usually several times! please fix this video! (it is not my internet connection, it is the video.)

brightman73, posted on September 5, 2013

I used this after my morning walk today. FABULOUS!
I love the cues to use my hands to extend my waist and legs.

brightman73, posted on September 4, 2013

This segment (Hip Openers) was fantastic! I used it after my morning walk. I loved all the internal cues he gave such as using my hand to help my knee in a pose. I loved the pacing.

jazzghatora, posted on August 11, 2013

i loved this video!!! thank you

jrdenny, posted on May 29, 2013

I have significant hip pain but I feel great after taking time to open my hips with Rodney.

jtatum5655, posted on May 23, 2013

If you'd like a quick (20ish minutes) morning yoga routine, then this is great choice. Relaxing and active without being too complicated. :)

nokneed, posted on May 19, 2013

Just FYI: After doing this for 2 weeks, my hips open dramatically. This has VERY positive impacts in the bedroom, if you know what I mean ;-)

B-health, posted on May 14, 2013

I have had this in my collection of DVDs for years. It is a staple for anyone who needs to take their practice with them on the road or motivation to move into the day calmly and whole. I love this set of practices! Great!

carolynjh4, posted on April 6, 2013

Hold so much in my hips and saw this Rodney Yee Hip Opener practice. So wonderful, so respectful of the body. Thank you.

I loved the sequence! Except that I cannot add the videos to my playlist :( it says invalid link.

butterfly50538, posted on March 14, 2013

I did the twists practice this morning and enjoyed it. It's a good way to get in a quick yoga practice before the day begins.

Jenb215, posted on March 10, 2013

Good quick practice that start immediately and maintains a good pace. Perfect for am practice or just before bed to relax.

powren, posted on March 1, 2013

I begin each day with one of Rodney Yee's 5 routines. I love being able to tailor my practice to what my body is telling me. The length is perfect for busy workdays and when I have more time I do two!

nokneed, posted on February 13, 2013

Just what I needed. A great routine to stretch out my bruised pirinformis!! Thanks Rodnee, just what the chiropractor didnt order, but I found anyway, for less money!!

psykosprite, posted on September 20, 2012

This guy is a fabulous instructor. He clearly identifies WHEN your pose needs to change, keeps you on track with breathing, notifies what's coming up next and how to modify or enhance the stretches as needed. I did the hip opener video after a workout the night before when my hammies and legs were KILLING me and wow did this really help. It was definitely a bit of a stretch (no pun intended) to do some of the poses, but it felt amazing to nail every area of my legs.

Irina, posted on September 16, 2012

Great stretching! Great music! Relaxing!

ckasten, posted on June 3, 2012

Love this video. I've always had hip soreness even though I'm young and this video has so many good stretching techniques.

Elizabeth Brennan, posted on May 9, 2012

Could you please send me the email?

SUSANB, posted on April 6, 2012

I love the sound of your voice. It is soothing and strong. You are my favorite. You explain everything so well. suki
