I'm having some shoulder and arm issues while on a long motorcycletrio and this practice was great to keep my shoulders moving before getting back on the bike.

super easy, & my shoulders feel so relaxed & great, I cay most of my tension in my shoulders & always need a practice focus on them just to relieve everything. thanks!

I have minimal shoulder strength and appreciate the multiple modifications presented in this flow. I didn't feel like there was anything wrong with me even though I couldn't do a bent knee push-up - you had a modification for that! Thank you so much. Now I can get stronger instead of injuring myself!

Enjoyed this practice, challenging but not too hard for beginners.

I enjoy Melissa's calming voice and her explanation of each pose is perfect for me! I really need to work on my upper body strength, so this video may become routine!

A great class for me. Had a broken wrist a year and half ago and have still problems with it. I think i will work a couple of weeks with this class to get back in form. Thank you.
