Improving your Snatch takes a lot of time, stretching, and persistence.  Here is a great blog post with eight snatch drills that can help you.  These drills can be performed any time on your own or before class with either a empty barbell or pvc pipe. Also, there is a great warm-up routine at the bottom of the blog to get your muscles and nervous system warmed up for when you plan on working up to heavier loads (hint hint).
