This quick class we called 'Core Primer' because Rachel helps you establish a connection to your core muscles so you can practice yoga safely. You can insert this before one of your favorite yoga classes, or if you only have 15 minutes, do it on its own. It will challenge you to maintain the alignment and stability that keeps your body strong, flexible and healthy. Note: the strap is optional.

Equipment: Strap
Style: Hatha Yoga

The class is good although I find that this short practice could be more enjoyable if the teacher would limit her comments to the least possible using fewer words only the ones that are relevant to the asana. Also there are disparities in time for each side of the body because she is entertained by her own speech and that’s counterproductive for body balance. I hope yoga teachers realize this and limit their speech while giving instructions yoga is not about talking if the teacher talks too much it gets daunting and confusing.

I just love your wee tips for huge improvements. Not only this class had given me better shoulder stability, it improved my planks, my push ups and (slower but still) my down dogs. And its all in the tiny wee changes that make a big difference. Thank you Rachel

I don't think I have ever felt my core muscles engage as deeply as they did when I did this class. Definitely going to revisit this on a regular basis. You're classes are so challenging and therapeutic, Rachel. Thank you so much!

Wow! Not only was this a great focus on core work, I added way more awareness to shoulder stability. What an education in 15 minutes. Nice work, Rachel.

This class was perfect for a day I didn’t have much time, and wanted something short, but not too easy. After it was over, I did a few moments of relaxation to wind down. I will definitely use this with other classes in the future. Thank you, Rachel.

Great little core quickie to give that area a little extra attention; perfect length and intensity to be able to add it in after doing a longer practice. Thanks!
