Rachel, you are always so intentional and clear with your cueing. Thank you. I was feeling very heavy physically, emotionally- I DO feel lighter now.
Thank you so much!

It's so good when changing our physical state can change all the other stuff (mental heaviness, emotional heaviness), too. AMAZING :)

I know this was beneficial for strengthening my practice, but man, it was tough! I consider myself to be at an intermediate level, but clearly I still have some work to do on mula bandha! I wished there would have been some moments to rest and stretch throughout the practice because I found myself getting pretty tired during some of those tedious, slow movements of the practice. I guess I should probably keep coming back to this one periodically, but I just wish it a was more joyful. I guess I need to bring my own joy next time!

Thank you for the feedback! I know what you mean; the slower practices can be really hard. Thanks for sticking with it :)

This class was very challenging for me as I have rather tight hamstrings. This class stretched them out a bit and showed me where I have more room to open up. I sweat so much throughout the hour because I had to work hard to make it through but I ended the class feeling great!

Ama, thanks so much for trying it out! Yes, you're right, it is definitely tough on the hamstrings :) I'm glad it felt good afterwards.

Thank you Rachel!
I am getting a much better handle on how to activate the Mula Bandha each time I take this class - this has been a hard concept for me to understand, and I think your instruction is just what I've needed. :) This class also does wonders for my back, it has been bothering me a bit as I've been getting back into a regular running schedule. I am definitely going to put this class in my regular rotation, it one of my favorites!

Wonderful, wonderful! Mula bandha is tricky!
I'm so glad that it's helpful - and I'm so glad to hear that your back feels better :)
