Gracious! Definitely strength-building. Thank you! And great cueing, as usual, especially in the first plank. I always learn something new about my alignment in Rachel's classes.

The key word in this practice is "power." Poses and positions held a little long, but nothing too difficult to keep up or modify for an intermediate level. I think of this practice as a good way to awaken some muscles I've been neglecting while away from my regular practice.

OK Rachel, with most yoga practices we allow the body to warm up and gather some heat. So why do you begin immediately with an elbow plank and hold it for how long (?) ... one minute? I fortunately went for a 60 minute "warm up" run before the practice ... but my partner had not ... it was brutal!

Yah, oh my gosh, I know, it's a doozy! In this sequence, the forearm plank IS the warm up. It's an accessible pose (meaning you don't have to be flexible to get into it) and (obviously) it builds heat and intensity quickly. In my world, power styles classes cultivate intensity quickly and are an invitation to a bit of a butt kicking. A flow style practice would be more movement and mobility oriented off the top, which would probably categorize more of my teaching on this site. With all these practices, you are absolutely empowered to modify them (put your knees down, take a break) if the scales tip from "challenging" to "brutal" :)
