Such a great class! And such a great teacher! Your meticulous details on how to enter into each pose are phenomenal. You have a great energy and I have enjoyed every class that I have taken with you.

My husband and I are enjoying this practice (have done it independently of this challenge) and are looking forward to the challenge. We both get such joy out of your wording "juicy" "scrub" "scooch" - makes it fun. And your elongating the words showing feeling is great! Thanks and I can't wait to come to one of YOUR yoga retreat/vacations when we can! Cheers from New Hampshire!-Margot and Bradley Keyes

I could not agree with pippalotta more! You have a gift and I am so happy that you are here to share it with us all! Thank you! Oh - and I loved this class. I usually stick to intermediate but have found that your beginner classes work wonderfully for me. :)

A wonderful practice with a lot of help/direction from Rachel. It is a great class for anyone revisiting half moon or wanting to learn to do half moon properly.

Rachel, you are an actual magician! Your ability to breakdown movement in the body and actually describe it to others, is an absolute gift! We are very lucky to have you here. I learn so much from all your classes and even though most are labelled as Beginner they are often as difficult as other advanced ones due to the focus on moving thoughtfully at all times. Thank you!

Man, I love this class. I feel great after it, and learn a lot of tips for remaining aligned, and feeling strong, that I can use in other classes. Thank you!

I have always had the hardest time with half moon pose and maintaining balance/alignment, it has always felt off for me. This time, I feel like I was finally aligned properly and was able to hold the balance for much longer than I have been before! Thank you!

What a super class. The usual incredibly intricate and detailed cueing from Rachel as we worked towards the peak half moon poses. When I practice at home, it's on a carper, so can be wobbly underfoot. The progressions really helped me find stability as I opened up. Heartfelt thanks Rachel for another beauty of a class.

Most yoga classes focus only on the INNER hip. I appreciate the balance in also offering classes that work the OUTER hip. My problem spot! I frequently wake in the middle of the night with outer hip pain. Great sequence that I definitely plan to come back to! Thanks, Rachel, for your helpful instruction to help keep us safe when moving in and out of poses. Many thanks!
