This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 5 - Twists in Melissa's weeklong series: Basics and Beyond 7-Day Yoga Challenge. This fun beginner class with Melissa is focused on different twisting poses including reclined, on all-fours, standing, lunging and seated. These twists help to release the entire spine while also getting into the hips and shoulders for a full body practice.

I can always count on Melissa to share a thoughtful, well-instructed practice. This was so perfect for a morning when I woke up stiff in my spine. By the end, I felt calm, peaceful and not in pain. Thank you!

This is one of my go-to lunch break sessions. Feels amazing during and after. Thank you Melissa, your classes are wonderful.

I return to this class time and time again when I need a gentle body movement class. The twists are just as gentle as Melissa's tone, and I enjoy the flow of the class! I am always happy to learn from Melissa :)
