I squeezed a little time in to do these stretches while my kids ate breakfast and found that I was much more calm and relaxed. I am going to make this a part of my daily routine.

I hate stretching after an intense workout and I thought I'd give this video a shot. I'm so glad I did. I feel relaxed and my muscles don't feel as tense as they usually do after a workout. Thanks for this video. I loved it!

Perfect class to recover from a very stressful weekend

I am just getting back into my yoga practice after a few month Hiatus! This course is exactly what I needed and perfect for my current level. Thank you!

Excellent course

Today was my first attempt and loved this class. Years ago I did Yoga when I was young - just now realizing I am 67 years old though active (flight attendant international), I find it important to begin "acceptance" on this next stage in my life. Yoga fits the ticket to begin "again" to focus on the body, honor it, and to keep as fit as possible as I enter this next round. Thank you for you are helping so many and creating joy within!

This was just what I was looking for today as I was sore and tight from massive yard and housework yesterday. Ahhhhh.

This was exactly what I needed after a full week of working out. All of my muscles were tight and sore. Now, I feel open and relaxed. Ready to start the day. A great AM practice.

This practice is by far my favorite and I keep coming back to it when I need to stretch and relax completely. Thank you so much for this!

Up to around three weeks of almost daily "Bend and Stretching" now. For some movements I'm moving beyond struggleville to enjoymentland. Yeah for Melissa and!
