Thanks for this Melissa! I have practised yoga for 25+ years but am recovering from a knee replacement. This is the perfect way to ease myself into my practise.

Thank you very much! I'm going to try the 7 day challenge. I very much like your gentle style and detailed instructions. I've been recently doing your bend and stretch video 5-6 times a week for all of May . I thought I'd try something different for a change. I do have a long standing stiff neck and shoulder (really right side of back coming and going-depending on what I'm doing) and very tight hips. I thought gentle yoga would be the best way to keep moving and hopefully these muscles will release.

I loved the practice but I felt dizzy during the practice and after the practice. Did anyone else feel like that? I mean is it normal?

Yes, sometimes breath work/heavy breathing can get you a little light headed, but that's a good thing, it means you're getting rid of toxins!

Loved this and looking forward to more. This class was just the perfect fit for me. For reference, I’m 55 with fibromyalgia.
