If you're having issues with the player:

This is the forth class in a 4-part series taking you into full bow pose (dhanurasana). It builds on what you learned in Bow Pose: Core Strength, Bow Pose: Hip Flexor Release, and Bow Pose: Open the Shoulders. After learning how to move safely into a deep backbend by strengthening the core and releasing the hip flexors and shoulders in the first three classes, Rachel takes you through a well-paced, full-length hatha yoga class that is thorough, attentive to detail and careful in its progression toward the peak pose. Good luck with bow pose!

Equipment: None
Style: Hatha Yoga

Wow, what a finale to a wonderful series! Even when some poses or movements feel unfamiliar at first - or I lose my balance trying to do "Wild Thing", which would have been a marvelous sight for any observer - Rachel's clear guidance ensures I'll be safe throughout.
I always know that I will feel amazing at the end of the class. I feel taken care of. Thank you, Rachel!

Thank you Rachel for this practice. I am recovering from a burn out and have been teaching vinyasa for a few years and stoppen for different reasons. Now practicing more frequently and feeling the love for yoga and how beneficial in this stage of my life. Thank you!
