Class Description: 

This hatha yoga class works with the wall to help you better understand alignment within many well-known yoga poses, such as downward facing dog, revolved half moon and warrior two. Using the wall can be surprisingly transformative, and Rachel has a nice way of helping you experience it in your body as you move through a nicely-paced flow. The class ends with a few restorative poses at the wall and a well-deserved savasana.

I know I just committed and I am no spring chicken but I do yoga pretty much everyday and I would say too maybe this is an intermediate class

Thank you, Rachel! I tried it for my morning practice today and now feel energized and ready to start my day. I do believe that this should be tagged as intermediate due to the physical demand and the basic knowledge of sanskrit/pose names and alignment principles being required to follow the pace. Loved it!

Nice Change!

I really liked this class. It was a nice alternative to the typical yoga classes. I was able to stretch deeper, and I think with better form. As usual, Rachel's cuing is excellent!

Such great feedback from everyone in this thread! The wall is such a great tool to use in practice. I find that the wall classes kick my butt a bit because - as you say - your form is really kept in line. Thanks for trying it out!

I really liked this practice

I really liked this practice and I cues. I think that sometimes it is good not to know the name of the pose because we listen to the cues differently and perhaps are able to find new things and nuances that we may have missed if we come to the pose that we are familiar with.

Was ok

Came into these stretches cold and wished the video was long enough for a better warm up. Would be nice to have a quick view of the pose before you try to put us in it. Also the real name of the poses might be helpful, as step by step instructions leaves us slowly hanging on your words instead of knowing where to go. Wish there was a little more instruction about how to enjoy the wall and use it to better the practice.

I love Rachel's practice

I do love your practice Rachel but if we do not measure the favorites against the not so favorites and with all the videos getting 5 stars it seems a bit unrealistic !. Rachel you are a 5 star instructor, I did not care as much for this video I am sorry ..I think it is so much better to do a wall practice with someone to check your positions because you can think you are in the right position and not be there. Thanks it was not awful just not what I usually like when I use your videos thanks though

Hi Heidela

Absolutely - not all classes can be five stars, nor should they be! Honest feedback is great :) Thanks for trying it out!
