Using the block and strap to experience different muscles is so effective - I will be saving and repeating this class to help develop that mental and physical habit. Thank you!

I'm so happy to hear that you found the props helpful. I love using pros; I feel like the help us discover all those small, crazy muscles that get overlooked! :)

Rachel, I loved this class. My "go to" tends to be vinyasa/power. This was incredible to sweat through fewer poses and really feel different parts of the hip, back and abdominal anatomy without feeling like the pace was slow - somehow. I kept thinking of my sister, who has issues with her hips and low back. Wondering whether this approach may help her.
Thank you, Rachel. Your cues are always very helpful/clear. Namaste.

YAY! I'm so happy that you enjoyed the class. I love vinyasa too...but there's something about really slowing down that can be incredibly therapeutic as well as ass-kicking. I'd love to see if this class may help your sister; so often the issues in our back come from tightness/weakness in the hips. The props can sometimes help us find a new "pathway" to strengthen our bodies that we miss when we can just run on autopilot and do our usual thing. xo

Starting Day 1 of Whole Body Challenge and this class was a great reminder of the importance of using the smaller muscle groups. Looking forward to feeling stronger and more balanced at the end of 21 days.

Thought this class was excellent. I put myself as an intermediate and often do vinyasa classes with Fiji. I found this class just what I needed, for good hip support and making sure I engage those smaller muscles. I play tennis and find as Rachel says, it is so easy for the bigger muscles to take over and then they get tight and strained. For me the pacing was perfect, and gave me time to get the right muscles engaged. Looking forward to next class. Thank you Rachel.

I'm so happy to hear that the practice felt good in your body. Yes! We all need those smaller stabilizers to kick in! I'm glad that it supported your practice :)

What a great class starting off strong. I found this challenging but very accessible. I feel phenomenal and look forward to the next 20 straight days of wonderful, healing, strong yoga. ❤️
