I love this class. Perfect way to build to Bird of Paradise. Also, my hips are thoroughly lubricated after this class!!

Rachel's instructions are clear and concise, I don't even need to look at the screen, allowing me to really focus on refining each pose. The pace is measured, I can really feel my muscles and parts move into place. Love this, thank you.

I love this class. The pace isn't too fast, and its such a fantastic combination of challenge, playfulness and instruction. There aren't enough classes that focus on both standing and arm balances. Rachel is such a great teacher!

I loved the unique building of poses from-the-ground-up!
Rachel's instructions are precise and easy to follow, and I found myself able to get deeper into some of the poses than I would have thought I was able to go. I enjoyed the eep stretches for hips and modifications offered along the way. Thank you!

Thank you Rachel! I have a ganglion in my right wrist that always hurts so much. Sometimes I don't dare to make Yoga and I always avoid the asanas with too much weight on the wrists. I don't really know how, but you explained every single asana so well in this class that I am free of pain at the moment. Thank you so much. I really enjoyed your class!

Thank you Rachel for this amazing class. Each time I go through it I realize somethig new in my body and it helps me just get a little bit closer to the full expression of the poses. I'm not there on all of them, but I know that with time, practice, and your clear instruction it will happen someday. Thank you!

Skillfully taught that has the right mix of warming up and gently guiding to deep hip and side stretches. It's very obvious that she has a lot of passion for yoga and a deep understanding of how to teach.

Thank you Rachel for this favorite class of mine. I've been doing this class a while ago and found it just the right mix of smooth, focused and challenging. I broke my pelvis, ankle and foot due to an accident half a year ago.Now this class is just right to get my flexibility and coordination back and to align my pelvis. Never thought I could do it but it wasn't too bad. Best therapy at home. thanks so much.

Thank you Rachel!
Somehow this time I felt the "click" which allowed me to go into crow pose.
Lovely class!

I like this class very much, and i think if you do all asanas really right and properly it is not so easy but this is the biggest pleasure . Rachel Scott one of my favorite teachers here, and I look forward to get some new long video classes from her. ☺️ Thank you

Hi Rachel,

I thought this class was a perfect intermediate level. I had fun trying some new poses, and entering familiar ones in a different way.

I've been enjoying your classes regularly for 6 months. Thank you so much for your clear, calm instruction and your smile and joyful energy!

This was a fun class and the sequence was a great pace :) I should have known from "power" in the title and the immediate sun salutations that it was going to be a vinyasa flow class, but I kept going because it still seemed like it was going to be fun.

So great thank you! A couple poses were a bit challenging for me but maybe one day! It's been too long since I have practiced but now I plan to get back into it. You are fantastic.

I love this class not only because it challenges me but because each pose is building up to the final peak posture. I am unable to complete the bird of paradise posture however each time I attempt this video I am able to get further into the pose than before! Thank you so much for this flow

I have been practicing yoga for a couple of years but never consistently, and over the summer had to take a long break. Just started again a month ago, very stiff, with a blocked hip and a lot of pain in my lower back (and feeling like 80 years old). I loved Rachel's classes from the very beginning, and have been doing them almost every day. And today I was able to open my hip again without pain!! I still cannot hold all the poses yet but am very confident that I will eventually. Rachel, thank you so much for your awesome classes, your very quiet way of explaining, and for helping me get my energy back! And I would love to have more classes from you online...

I'm relatively new to Yoga, and while I'm not able to do some of these poses fully yet, Rachel gives awesome step-by-step instructions which helps me discover exactly where I'm at. Thanks for this amazing practice, I'll keep coming back to this one for sure!

I loved Rachel's descriptions of the poses. Her specific instruction helped me puzzle through a few poses I've been wanting to attempt, but felt was beyond my current practice. Looking forward to doing this again.
