This is not a beginner class. I consider myself advanced beginner / easy intermediate and i could not finish this class. Maybe a new sub category should be considered. How about advanced beginner or starting intermediate. I wish i could finish this(: Someday.

I must say I totally agree.

I must say I totally agree. This was difficult and I totally couldn’t even begin to do the last arm pose. I struggle to find classes which are not too easy beginner classes and ones which are intermediate which
I can finish. Oh were there a category in between! That said I did learn a lot from what I was able to do.

Wonderful clear instruction

Highly recommend this practice; really makes you work at being mindful about each part of your body as you move through poses. Very helpful and makes me really think about where my feet are in relation to my hips etc.

I reallllly love Rachel’s

I reallllly love Rachel’s classes. This “work in progress class” is excellent in that it gave me confidence to do things I would never have tried and showed me the way to do things gracefully. Many thanks Rachel.
