Wonderful Wall Twists

Access this free class

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 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.

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 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

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