Melissa's practices are just perfect. Complete body workout with a specific focus, and her cues make it easy for me to adjust the practice to whatever level of challenge suits me today.

It took me 3 tries, but today I finally made it all the way through this video!

I love this side bendy class. It's somehow both gentle and a little challenging. Thanks!

Day 4 yay! Thanks again, it's so great to be doing yoga in the morning each day with this challenge (although I had to miss a day due to going away ), but back in today!

I love this site!!
I really appreciate Melissa’s way of teaching in such a calm, considerate and loving way.
It’s a great series too! Helps you develop your yoga practice in a soft and nice pace, making you feel good about yourself and your body instead of incapable.

Lovely class ! I had "discovered" supported bridge pose with leg extended on my own, before seeing it in any yoga video. It's such a sweet relief for my hip flexor; I do it often. Adding the crescent/banana shape to it was an extra-special treat for both my hip flexor and my IT band.

I am loving this series. I look forward to this every day. I find that doing this in the morning helps me stay in focus better and pace my energy better through the day.
This is exactly what I needed. Thank you Melissa, I really appreciate the respect you show for all of our physical differences. Not limitations. Differences. I love it when you say "See what your body wants to do".
Thank you!!

Wonderful, such a fabulous start to the day. I am also loving this series - particularly grateful to have a structure in these difficult times.

I like this kind of yoga and Melissa as a teacher but I find the banana shape easier without the block.
