Lovely gentle, clearly cued class after I've spent some unfamiliar time on my bike. Thank you.

I enjoyed all the new moves and shapes I have not done before.

This series could not have come at a better time for me: I am lucky to be recovering from only a very mild case of Covid, but the lingering fatigue is no joke. These classes are just the right mix of challenge and gentleness to guide my body back into action and help me sense what it can and can't do yet.

I haven’t done yoga in over 2 years, this basics challenge is so helpful to allow my body to work back into yoga. Melissa, your voice is so soothing and you are so kind during these videos. Thank you for helping me back into peaceful living and loving my body.

A very gentle well guided class that gives me enough space to really go into the tissue and be very present and aware of where I am activating muscles.
I just had a hip surgery and I’m very grateful to get back control around my hip area.
Thank you so much,

All my heartfelt gratitude to Melissa for getting me back on the mat, following a four-month negation phase of mine, plus a most recent, COVID-triggered (I guess) flare-up of my autoimmune ailment with debilitating pain in my wrists, elbows and ankles. Love her rhythm, her solid yet soothing instructions - above all, her voice. Been through the first three practices, even shed a tear of gratitude and relief upon completing and namasteing the second one, looking forward to the rest. Thank you so very much, for restarting me
