This was my first class at 4 States Yoga and first yoga class in years. I have been a Covid couch-potato for over a year and want to get moving again. Prior to Covid, I was struggling with a knee injury that my physical therapist said was the result of my stiff hip flexors. When I saw the hip flexibility class, I knew it was a place to start.
The instructor (Rachel Fletcher) was kind, warm, and knowledgeable. She made the class feel accessible to all levels. The instructor was great about explaining the pose and giving alternates positions depending on the level of flexibility. When we were done, I felt worn out (in a good way) and by the time I got home, my legs felt like noodles (also in a good way).
The class was 90 minutes. It started and ended on time and Rachel stayed to answer questions. She also provided resources to help us continue at home.
The studio itself was clean and nicely designed. I had no issue finding parking. The mats were spaced safely apart from each other. The owner, Melissa Crowder, was also present and very welcoming. I left feeling better about my body and flexibility journey. I look forward to checking out other classes.
