Great teaching Rachel! I'm a super newbie, I've been playing around with Yoga and I'm dedicating 2018 to educating myself. Your class is a great start! Thank you so much for your teaching!

Hello Rachel thank you for this nice class. I want to ask a question. Is it normal to have a little lower back pain after one day from exercise?
Before I had a similar lower back pain after David's another class and it was one day long and gone after one day.

Hi Ahmet, while it is normal to experience sensation after physical activity, it's important to evaluate what kind of pain you are feeling. Muscle soreness is normal (it usually fades in 1-3 days) and may indicate that you are simply exercising muscles in a new way. However, sharp pain may be a sign that something isn't being worked properly. I may also suggest that low back aggravation could suggest a weaker core. You may check out the Core Primer series on DYWM for a couple days and see how you feel :)

Thank you for your quick response Rachel. Pain is gone in 2-3 days after exercise. It was muscle soreness i guess.

This class required great focus and attention. The instructions were exquisite and the results were my ability to tune into poses in a way that gave me more poise and stability. Much gratitude Rachel!

This class echoed and extended many of the things I learned yesterday in the last of a series of amazing beginners classes at a very well-regarded local studio. It was a great 'day after' reminder - and a real workout. This is definitely going into the book-marked list!

Thank you for the lovely class; this was just the thing for bringing focus and intention into my regular sun salutations!

I'm so glad David suggested this class. I may have done it once before when I started with DYWM. Now I'm transitioning to some more challenging classes, and this is a perfect pathway between my beginner and intermediate practice. Flawless instruction with clear descriptions and visual demo's that sustain the flow without chopping it up. What a knowledgeable and gifted teacher Rachel is, thank you. I found ANOTHER favourite doyogawithme class.
