This class is part two in a 4-part series taking you to bow pose (dhanurasana). Moving on from what you learned in Bow Pose: Core Strength, Rachel alternates between a brisk hatha flow and a series of deep, long holds, warming the body up so you can release the hip flexors and the front of the pelvis, ultimately making it easier for your pelvis to tilt back and your body to move into a backbend. This class also has a peak pose, dancers (natarajasana) and will prepare you for the next classes in this series: Bow Pose: Open the Shoulders, and Bow Pose: Ready for the Peak!


Thank You!

Like many people with desk jobs who also run/bike, I have tight hips. Frequently, I have lower back tightness because my hip flexors are stressing my lower back. This started years ago during preganancy and continues 20 years later. Today, I had a deep release like nothing I've ever experienced. My back feels amazing!

Great class

I really, really enjoyed this class. Great pacing, juicy holds that perfectly warm you up for Dancer. Not too strenuous, but just enough of a practice that you feel very grounded and warm.

Another wonderful class by Rachel Scott! Clear instructions and great cueing keep me coming back. What a treat to have a nice long shavasana at the end. Now feeling fully refreshed. Love what my body can do with Rachel's guidance - feels like I gain a little bit more flexibility with every class.
