Rachel, Thank you for this great preparation. Which class would you recommend as the next progression from this?

Thank you Teacher, for your kind and detailed instruction. I will do this class and build strength until I feel I have mastered the balance at the end.

Great practice and Rachel is so detailed in explaining what to do and why. A wonderful tutorial type practice.

Thank you, Rachel. You make the more challenging poses seem manageable. Can I hope that you'll follow this up with a full forearm balance class someday?

Rachel, Thanks for another great "preparation for" class! I've been working on forearm balance since the Omega retreat, and I think that the shoulder strength you build in this session will help me progress.
