Great workout! Challenging

Great workout! Challenging but uncomplicated, so a beginner can participate and grow with these poses.

Good for morning stiffness

I enjoyed doing this early in the morning. It helped with my chronic leg stiffness.

Thanks for this!

I attend regular yoga and pilates classes and thought I was intermediate- I'm wrong! But I am enjoying this class and Melissa's other sequences. A good choice if you are in the beginner to intermediate stage.

More of a Power Yoga
Theandyn 11 months ago

I have been doing yoga for over 2 years now but have been too busy and haven't been able to practice it in a couple of weeks. I decided to try a shorter class to get my body back into it before I move up into a 60+ minute yoga class. I enjoyed the class and do think its for beginners. However, I would put it more into the "power yoga" category. She is constantly breathing and moving in and out of poses. It wasn't as deep of a stretch, being able to breath into and going a little bit deeper every time I inhaled/exhaled, like I would have enjoyed. I would see about switching this into the power yoga category.

I had my hip replaced 2.5 weeks ago and this class is really helping me to get back in my yoga groove. I can't believe how much strength I lost. It's depressing, but this class is really helping me get back on target. I really appreciate it!

Oh my goodness. This one is

Oh my goodness. This one is more difficult than it looks (that's a good thing)! I'll be returning to this one time and again.

I always turn to this video when I need a short but satisfying strength workout. Thanks, Melissa!

Good for when your shoulders aren't up to a full practice!

Well, really, this video is good for any time you need a short practice...but it is one of my mainstays for when I'm struggling with seasonal tendonitis...such a great resource! Melissa is one of my favorite instructors - her videos are just the right amount of relaxation and exercise. Keep 'em coming and Melissa!
