This was the class I didn't know I needed! It felt amazing, and reminded me to include more upper body work in my practice.

I liked the use of props. It helped me maintain focus and alignment.

As a yoga teacher, I find Rachel's fundamentals of practice incredibly informative and inspiring. The pace and detailed information she provides for all her classes continues to allow me to make new discoveries in my body that I can then impart to my students. Thank you!

Not sure if my previous comment was posted or not, I don't see it, so here it is (again):
I am not sure if I'm the only one that has a hard time keeping up with Rachel's high speed instructions. Especially when it's so detailed and the moves are so subtle. I sometimes need to stop and rewind to get it all.

I always watch classes before practice. With Rachels Fundamentals I repeat them so often I forgot counting, They are the basis for
everything I am trying on the mat. For me, yoga is a never ending learning process, I am always a BEGINNER!
