..and a little too short. Solved it by doing first the Beginners Yoga for shoulder strength, then this one. Perfect! Will do again indeed! Great teacher!

I really love this practice ! It's simple and yet very effective.
And this tree pose tells me that my 10+ ballet years didn't go to waste :)

Thank you for the great work, doyogawithme and... More Melissa's please ! :)

Thank you so much for this video. I have only tried a few so far but you are my first to go into favorites. I loved the bridge and the legs especially the transition from left leg to right it flowed so nicely. My daughter did this with me and loved the leg portion to.

I really enjoy this one. I am a newby so it's just right for me.

Thank you Melissa! Your teaching helped me really tune in and achieve a full lower body workout (instead of powering through using only major muscles) and it feels great. I'll be doing this class regularly.

I did this while the chicken was baking. Short and relaxing after my run.

Just want to say that I've been doing Melissa McCleod's classes every morning for a couple of weeks and I'm loving them. Her voice is so clear and authentic and easy-going, her directions are great and I always come out feeling really grounded and uplifted. More classes from Melissa please!
