Fun Class. Thank you Rachel, waterfall grabbing opposite elbows, but the reverse way was refreshing. This is great for my wrists.

Definitely not easy even though there is no floor work - way to work the legs!

A while ago I suggested a shoulder-free yoga class in Rachel’s Instagram, so glad to see it materialized!
After a subluxation a couple years ago my shoulders hurt every once in a while and this class definitely delivered a challenge while preserving them from further injury and allowing them to heal. Thank you, Rachel!

Hi, Rachel,

In previewing this workout, it looks great for someone with subluxed shoulders and right wrist and radial hardware. But is it wise to do with (right) Morton's neuroma?

Thank you, and please keep up the good work!

Hi Lisa! I'm not a medical professional, so unfortunately don't have the knowledge to advise on particular conditions. My personal, non-medical perspective is that Morton's neuroma seems to affect the feet, so this class would likely be as challenging as a typical yoga class.

I would consult with your medical provider ~ I'm sorry, I wish I could offer something more substantive!

Wonderful class. I really need to strengthen my legs and back and it's nice to have a vinyasa-free class every now and then.

~Thank you

A fun practice with LOTS of glute and leg poses.
Rachel is such a great teacher/guide for this practice. And, she has a GREAT sense of humor.
Only 30 minutes but you will feel it.

Thanks Rachel. You could tag this a great 'post vaccine' practice for anybody with a sore arm.
