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

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!

I really enjoyed this series of four. The first one was the hardest for me and then I got into it. The last one felt amazing all through, I don't know if I am actually stronger or if it just was a good day but I managed to do it all with concentration and motivation and I did bow pose in such a great way. Thank you so much.

Just finished the fourth class, Peak Pose. Bow pose is one of my favorites. To receive such exacting details in all the classes leading up to it, and in the end for bow pose itself, was a treat. I was pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of wild thing, another of my favorites. I was in yoga heaven! Still smiling. Consistent with all of Rachel's classes, instructions were clear, detailed, and I learned nuances for many poses that will make my practice better. Thank you, Rachel!

These last four classes were better than I expected. Great first week(and a half!) of this program. Thank you.
