My first class back at the mat in a couple months. This was gentle enough while hitting all the right spots and was more challenging than I expected. Thank you for this wonderful, encouraging space.

Seriously such a great class! I have been in a FUNK all day and this was just the thing to pull me out of it and give me a more positive outlook for the rest of my day.

I can't thank you enough for this class. I did something to my right hip a few months ago. Physio, IMS, more physio, slow progress. It's still not right, but infinitely better. But I still hadn't gotten back to doing yoga.
Two friends had recently written telling me they'd been feeling depressed. I had also fallen into a pretty big fog from being in pain and doing so little exercise. I told one of the friends about the things I do to pull myself out, Yoga being one.
Rather bold of me to say that when i hadn't done yoga in months because of the hip, then the lazy.
Yesterday, I followed my own advice and did this class. I did it again today.
You are so right Miss Rachel, it's vital to take time to connect to our breath!
Thank you so much for this class. It's excellent. And thanks for this site. So many wonderful teachers and classes.

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).
