Perfect! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed it - and yes...TOTAL shoulder and core workout!

Wow! This is an incredible core and shoulder workout and I felt really prepared to try the inversions! Definitely making progress, little by little with Rachel's instruction and her brilliant way of helping us to understand exactly how to move and where to feel it. Felt really strong today and although I didn't make it all the way up the wall with both legs, as Rachel said it's not about getting straight into that pose, it's about building the blocks to get there slowly but surely, and safely. Excellent class, thanks Rachel x
