Thanks so much for this. I almost didn't do any yoga as I didn't have much time. It's easy to get caught up thinking that longer classes are needed for any relief. But not true! I feel so much better-- all while my rice was cooking:)

This really hits all the trouble spots for me, including my quads. I wasn't expecting quad stretches so that was a pleasant surprise. This was just enough effort, stretch and relaxation to make me feel good in body. Thank you!

I simply love this class - all of Rachel's 30 minute classes around this period are just sublime. this is no exception. It's certainly one for a more established beginner practitioner, and definitely one to practice as you make that transition towards the more intermediate classes. Rachel's exquisite cueing, sequencing, modifications and use of props throughout make for a class that I didn't want to end... although I was very grateful for the savasana at the end all the same :) thank you Rachel. Namaste.

...in this 30 min practice!
Perfect stretches and flow for the desk sitter & cyclist in me.
Thank you, Rachel & DYWM for this offering!
One of my favourites!
And I'd also say, rather intermediate than beginners (worked well for me).

thank you. This is first time I have not hated camel pose! Your cues and instruction allowed me to see what I had been doing that was causing my body distress. I can add this pose to my list now without resistance!
