Great class

I enjoyed the vinyasas and detailed instruction on form for protecting knees and "scrubbing" new things! ; ) I even worked up a bit of a sweat and feel nice and flexible in my hips now. Thanks for such a nice sequence, Rachel.

Thanks for an excellent class.

I have knee issues and am currently working on my strength and flexibility. The explanations of alignment and transitions were really helpful. This class was a challenge for me and the final half moon pose is beyond me at the moment but I will definitely be making it part of my regular routine.

Just the Ticket!

Rachel,

This class was so perfectly explained and your cuing was right on the money. Focusing on all of the positioning of the top and bottom of your leg and knee added a new and deeper dimension to this class and these moves that we all probably do by memory and not with the intended attention.

I feel amazing finishing this class!! It’s just the ticket for what I needed today! Simply PERFECT!!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!!!!!

Happy Half-Moon & Happy Hips

Warm and flexible and peaceful now... thank you Rachel for the clear instructions (learned 'even' as an intermediate how to develop Half Moon incl the ankle bind in a much better way), the perfect build-up and stretch-out, and the gentle savasana guidance.

Perfect complement to my physio!

I've been going to physio for patella femoral pain (basically the result of weak outer hip muscles and strong inner thigh muscles) and my physio plan is all about finding proper hip-knee-ankle alignment, strengthening the glutes, and stretching the legs. This class is exactly what I need! Put a mirror in front of you to help you see your alignment from another angle :) Many thanks, Rachel!!

Great tune-up for

Great tune-up for intermediate students! I felt very stable in the peak pose and my body felt stretched and elongated by the end of the class. Rachel has a knack for offering clear explanations which don't require looking at the screen, and she keeps the mood light even when the poses are intense. Thanks, Rachel!

I struggled to get into and stay into half moon pose. Otherwise this was a great class.

Excellent!

My hips have been tight and I've been trying every hip opener I can find. Not only was this class great fun but my hips feel much better!

Nice antidote for hip issues!
