Class Description: 

This is the 1st in a series of four classes that lead you to the bow pose (dhanurasana). In this class, Rachel brings you through an invigorating hatha yoga flow that challenges your core strength and teaches you the alignment principles that you will need to understand as you move toward any deep backbend. Her progression through core strength and deeper backbends take you to camel pose (ustrasana), just before you cool down and enter a well-deserved savasana.

Love Rachel & this class but I'm having so many problems with the video cutting out that it wasn't very enjoyable or relaxing, unfortunately :(
I do pay a subscription fee as well so I hope the video quality can be improved!

Challenging class

As a yogina of a certain age, this class pulled me to my edge, but I am hanging in there. Must agree that instructions for camel pose are new to me and helpful. Thanks Rachel and DYWM.

Vigorous class. I had to pause and hold downward dog several times but I will not give up. Love your voice and clear instruction. Thank you.

That was such an active yoga

That was such an active yoga class. Pretty quick pace, but I agree with other people in that, Rachel was very reassuring and checked my alignment with her voice alone. Great stuff. Broke quite a sweat and still yet a great precursor and segway into some meditation.

That was Excellent. I am so grateful for the way you remind us throughout to engage the core and realign. Rachel, you have a beautiful voice which is so reassuring when I'm about to think I can do no more. I can't wait to try the future sessions. This one deserves to be revisited and enjoyed again and again.
Thank you
