Rachel’s vinyasa classes are rich in yoga philosophy, sweaty with hard work, and down-to-earth in tone. You can expect an Ashtanga-inspired pace, creative sequencing, a musical sensibility, and a vertical split or two along the way.
Let your breath drive your practice, feel free to modify anything that doesn’t feel safe or reasonable (especially if you’re pregnant, recovering from an injury, or new to yoga), skip vinyasas for a more mellow practice, and crank up some of your favorite background tunes.
You can find Rachel’s monthly playlists on Spotify at @rachelmeyeryoga.
Most importantly, remember to be gentle with yourself — and don’t take yourself (or your yoga practice) too seriously. Rachel hopes you’ll laugh as much as you sweat, and walk out feeling a little stronger, a little softer, and a lot more you.
