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

I was short on time this morning, but also wanted a more intense class. This was perfect. I loved the "shluppie". Thanks for making me smile!

Perfect start for my day. Now my back feels awake and ready for the day.

This brief beginner video is tougher than it looks, so be gentle with yourself! GREAT tips on strengthening core areas that are so important to everyday life as well as yoga. So glad it tried this one out.

Great Class. I am still a beginner. This class definitely let me see I will be one for awhile longer. I worked up a sweat and was a tad challenged to make it through an entire set of leg raises . I was excited to see that my prior classes had improved my balance for this class. I will be book marking this one. Thank you

The Site advertises hundreds of free yoga videos and doesn't have anything except paid ones :O(

The way the videos are set up, it can look as though there is a charge for the video when there really isn't. The blue boxes at the top of the video screen list three different prices if you want to download the video to keep forever on a personal device If you just hit play,, though, you can view/use the video online without downloading and without a fee. The vase majority of videos are indeed available without cost...

There are many videos available for free, some are paid yes, it may be that what you are looking for is only available through the paid experience due to level of training required for the instructor. try browsing around a bit without a set goal in mind and see what you can find.

I think this is very important information to keep yourself protected. Sometimes when doing crunches I overload my back, so thanks for showing me how to prevent this.
During the video I hit my lamp when stretching my leg back which fell over and hit another lamp in my room which fell over and hit my huge glass of water waiting for me for when I finish my practice and it spilled all over my bed. Which made me smile.

I've just started doing the Beginners videos and each one is tough. Thought I would do this short one today for a "rest" and I was limited on time, but it kicked my butt! Obviously I needed it more than I thought! And her style is clear, but encouraging. I'll be doing her videos, including this one, again!
