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!

Great Quick Beginner Video

Great beginner video! Very calming but also great at building strength... for beginners.

Noteworthy for those who may not give themselves enough credit (ahem, me!)... this video will not be very challenging for those with some shoulder strength already. This video is for beginners! (I used these positions when I was aiming to build shoulder strength earlier). Not enough 'reps'. But a quick, short video nonetheless that does absolutely no harm! Enjoyed every moment of it :)

In agreement with another comment on the site, online yoga videos do not do enough justice. Some of the best teachers I have come across!

Great Class

Doing this class as a part of the Absolute Beginners Program and it was great. I love how clear Melissa's instructions are, and how she encourages you to only go at your own pace and ability. Not enough stress on that in online yoga clases, in my opinion, and Melissa nailed it.

I would add to the tag info that you may want a STRAP for this class.

I love your voice, it helps keep me focused without being intrusive. Mildly challenging, which is great for my beginner status. Mild enough to not make me want to give up, challenging enough that my mind doesn't drift. Thanks!

Nice Work!

This workout done in the most advanced way is a lovely workout for the shoulders. Pushups etc. I love 20-30 minute workouts when I'm in a rush. I especially like Melissa's voice and instruction!
