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.

Equipment: Block
Style: Hatha Yoga

So brilliant to have such strong alignment for the body! Will there be more of these classes? They are strong and essential and make my body feel fantastic! Namaste from Ireland.

So happy to hear that you like this class and that it makes your body feel good! I also love wall classes - they can be so invigorating. You just can't cheat! They're like "tough love." :) Glad you like it.

This short alignment based class is brilliant, and difficult in many respects. Alignment is something I've noticed that can get lost in the "hurry" of flow classes. I would love love love to see a series of alignment based (with the wall and props) classes. They are absolutely essential for healthy asana work for me. Namaste from Ireland.

I usually do intermediate and advanced, but it is always good to revisit the basics from time to time. This was a very relaxing and soothing practise as well.

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
I know I've landed on a good class when I don't want it to end !!Thanks again Rachel you nailed it!

I love the clear cueing and details I love that I have scholiosis and this made my back feel better
I agree this is not a 5 star it is a 6 star I loved the music . Please do another wall class
Peace

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!

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 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.
