It doesn’t matter how many years I’ve been doing yoga for I got so much out of this class. A gentle reminder of how to be aware in practice. Thank you Rachel Scott !!!

Great class for bringing intentionality back to your practice.

Really helpful clues throughout the practice for activating the pelvic floor, which I tend to forget in the middle towards the end of practice.

Thank you so much for this class! The detailed instruction helped me so much. I started doing Rachel’s Well Rounded Challenging Beginner class about a year ago and it really helped me understand the foundations so much better. This class took that to the next level for me. I’m going to try to do it regularly. I think I finally understand how to do the hop now. Maybe someday I’ll get my feet close to my hands. :)

You are so welcome!!! I'm so happy to hear that these classes are helping to support your practice :) The hop is one of those things that takes awhile to get for sure. (Even after all this time, some days I've got it, and then some days I feel as heavy as an elephant LOL). So glad you're here in the community. XO

Loved the intensity of this class, creating much deeper awareness of the pelvic floor throughout the practice. Tough and rewarding! Thank you!

Bettina - so glad that you liked it! For me, once I started to tune into the pelvic floor awareness through the practice, it felt like a whole different ballgame ;)

I needed to try something new today and this was just what I needed. Your cues helped me see how differently I could focus and use my body to move through challenging poses. I modified a lot, but thoroughly enjoyed playing with each movement of class and exploring what worked for me. This was challenging, but uplifting and I look forward to trying it again!
