If you're having issues with the player:

Got a hamstring injury? Yoga is known as a flexibility practice, but what happens when you overstretch your hamstrings? Specifically designed for students who are working with a pulled hamstring or hamstring tendinopathy (often called, “yoga butt”), this class with Rachel will functionally strengthen your hamstrings and support your pathway to recovery. It is also an excellent class for students looking to cultivate lower body strength in general.

Equipment: Block, Blankets
Style: Hatha Yoga

Thank you SO MUCH for your deep knowledge & clear instruction, you have been incredibly helpful to my practice <3
If you happen to be considering doing a class on proper alignment for joint health/longevity, it would be absolutely celebrated and appreciated from here :)

I LOVED this class. However a word of warning: I have sciatica, which I normally keep under control in part through yoga, but something in this class caused it to flare up!

Sciatica is such a painful issue, and as you know it can flare up unexpectedly . It is important to note what types of movements bring about a flare up in your body, this of course takes time and reflection to be able to isolate those. Typically when the pelvis is out of alignment sciatica can be an issue, out hamstrings being tight can of course lead to that.

Outstanding. I really felt this and it was fantastic. Rachel is so good at instruction as well.
I did have a question. The block wobbling between the ankles as it is lifted... What causes that?
