Thank you for this class!
I did it yesterday and I really feel my legs today. Can you advice (or create) a class that stretches out the sourness the day after? Thanks in advance!

This is a full strength class, I am going to keep it as a couple-times-per-week. There is a queue forming of those of us waiting for the series coming mid Feb, per the Forum! Melissa you are right, that strength training supports many forms of confidence. Thank you for your work.

This was a great class and nice break from the traditional yoga. Would love to see more adding strength training combined with yoga flows. Thank you Melissa
