You hopefully have had the chance to practice with Rachel already since the studio has opened, but if not, it's time to get to her class, and fast.

You will find yourself pushing to your physical edge while simultaneously feeling at ease mentally. This balance is hard to come by, but so natural in Rachel's teaching.
