I am just getting back into yoga and am really happy I discovered this site. This video was really helpful and I enjoyed it. I think it was a good choice to start with.

Loving the side leg and upper arm stretch in the middle. Excellent for bed time prep. Thank you for this wonderful resource.

Relaxing, yet as challenging as I want it to be. Thank you

What a gentle, beautiful practice. It's a good stretch just before bedtime, or even to gently start your morning. I'll be returning to this sequence for sure. Melissa is such a loving guide, even says "please" at one point, makes many graceful suggestions for modifications, and approaches this practice with ease. Love.

This was my first DoYogaWithMe class--my husband and I did it together and we loved it. Easy poses for beginners that still allow more advanced students to go deeper into the stretches. Melissa is great at coaching students through the breathwork and movements. Great class!

This was my first time trying an online yoga class. I'm so glad I chose this video. Melissa's voice is soothing and gentle, and poses were sequenced beautifully. I'll be using this often. Thank you!!

Every aspect of this class is fabulous. Each move seem to follow the last one perfectly. This class is a great way to begin the day, especially since I didn't get too much sleep last night. I feel so light and airy. Thank you.

Great for the mornings =) to gently wake the body up.

Fabulous gentle stretch. If you are looking to stretch your shoulders and neck try a different practice but if you want a generalized stretch with which to start your morning you found it!

Perfect after a week of sitting still at my desk job. Gentle yet effective and extremely relaxing.
