Mat Workout

60 min - Class


Breathe big and shed tension during this full body Mat workout with Rachel Taylor Segel. She continues the theme of using the hands to connect more to your belly so you can understand how it works when you are on the Mat.

Rachel this was a great class. Love the reminders to shed tension and find the connection somewhere else. My goal this past year. I could see the visual connections your we making when your cues changed the bodies. Lots to take away. Thank you for your thoughtful and curiosity for movement.

Another enlightening bunch of information from you. Rachel. Thank you. The "Bucket" is a great image. I use a related image of asking my students to "prime the pump", that is, get the exhale going and then do the gesture.

Loved this Rachel! Thank you.
Enjoyed this class! Thank you!
Super class, great to take time and break down the exercises. Loved in particular the use of abdomen to lengthen and create space in leg stretch and circles.
