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!

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!

It was a nice beginner class, with just enough challenge to start strengthening my upper body.

Loved this class!

I'm just getting back into yoga after a 6 month break and really need to build some upper-body strength before attempting higher level asanas. This routine feels perfect, thank you!
