Wonderful cues for pulling in pelvic floor. I am a PT and I treat pelvic floor dysfunction. This was perfect. For myself it is hard to slow down and work on this but much needed

A new favorite for me! This class is quite demanding, but teaches you the very basics that make your practice safer, more joyful. Thank you so much.

I definitely did not feel like doing yoga today, even throughout most of this video. BUT...the mula bandha work was really powerful. I experienced changes in poses that I've been doing for years. Thanks Rachel!

Wonderful class. Rachel is a great teacher who really helps me focus on each specific area of my body in each pose. Thank you!

I appreciated the use of blocks in this practice. I've been doing the intermediate classes consistently and feel like they are perfect for where I am in my practice, but I'm not super flexible, and certain poses that I do on fingertips during other practices (pyramid, etc) felt so much stronger on blocks in this practice. Also, one thing I tend to do (b/c I need to) is use fingertips rather than palms when moving from downward dog into a lunge or downward dog jumping into forward fold. From my fingertips, I can engage core and do both these things. From flat palms, I can't. I rarely hear this as a tip in instruction, and I'm not sure whether this is b/c I just don't hear it or maybe b/c it's not a good practice, but it sure helps me out so I thought I'd mention. Thank you again for the encouragement in using blocks in this practice. It made for some fantastically deep stretches.
