Rachel, Just love these tutorials. You are so articulate and giving and thoughtful in how you are trying to present your ideas which makes for a very positive experience. I love the close up shots so we see exactly what your eyes are seeing, which as a teacher is important. Keep bringing us more of these please. We are so fortunate to have you share. Amy your body changed in a short time.and So great that you got to have such a great experience. I have the exact same issues and it's so wonderful to free of our quads.
Thank you everyone! I'd love to do more tutorials and they've promised to invite me next year again??

Thank you Rachel for your detailed explanations, cueing, up close camera shots, use of various equipment and props. More importantly, thanks for reminding teachers and students that some bodies are imbalanced, but there are ways to work with them.

Such a helpful tutorial. I've been amazed at the effect that padding under the shins and the cue to focus there has had on clients who previously had very poor thoracic extension! And finally quieten down some very tight bottoms! Thank you Rachel
