In this practice with Rachel, we will set the foundation for developing a safe and effective inversion practice. This class targets key areas of the body for inversions: wrists, shoulders, hips, core, and hamstrings. Note: You will need a wall to do the practice.

This can either be done as a stand-alone class, as Day 1 of Rachel's 7-Day Inversion Challenge or as Day 5 of the Daily Dose 30-Day Intermediate Yoga Challenge.

nice poses and good to have some explanations about alignment, but it was a bit too much talking for me.


My shoulders and lower back were tight from kayaking yesterday and this was a great class to work out the kinks. Also good for counteracting a lot of the desk work I have to do.

I revisited this class and enjoyed it thoroughly. My goal is to strengthen arms and core to get up to crow and stay more than 1 millisecond! Thanks Rachel

Rachel always has great technique teachings all the while giving a stretching workout. Grand reminder that the wall is an oft forgotten prop!
