Very helpful. I am trying these tips and can do a shorter hop. Trying to get my feet up closer to my hands!

I love this tutorial!!! Dog, cat, bird!! I will keep practicing with these tips. It doesn't help I am overweight apple shaped and must always have a knee blanket down but I admired some beatutiful fat pelicans off the Florida gulf coast last week, so have much hope!! Thank you so much.

Thanks, Rachel for your confidence-inspiring cues! I'm glad to have some solid guidance as I work towards floating towards the top of my mat.

This is something I find super difficult, despite having the arm strength and flexibility. The tips and demos should help - thanks Rachel!
