Mmmm --- toasty in all the right places. Such a great class, Rachel is a great teacher, gives great cues. I love how the class is oriented towards the peak pose - I like practicing with purpose! She has a bird of paradise one that is just as good if you liked this one! Please do more like this - love it!
