If you're having issues with the player:

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!

Equipment: None
Style: Hatha Yoga

This is such a great full-body class that really leaves me feeling stronger and more centered. It's already a go-to class in my schedule. Thank you, Rachel!

I fully agree. I love this class because of how strong and centered it makes me feel. It's a really smart, thorough, well-taught flow.

This was my second class with Rachel and I have to say, I cannot wait to tackle part 3. Great pace and instructions are clear and concise. Thank you Rachel and DYWM.

Perfect class! I am back to running after a 6 month hiatus and was feeling hip flexor soreness, I am backing off on my mileage and will do more yoga (again). Slacking off on yoga = poor running form. Thank you so much for a really well done class with great instructions on what/where to focus
