Core Fusion Flow

Beginner I

This short fusion class with Melissa incorporates pilates style exercises to build strength and increased awareness of your pelvic floor and deep abdominals. While this challenging class is beginner friendly, it is also a good fit for anyone with a stronger practice that wants to build more strength around their pelvis, hips, hamstrings, abdominals and lower back. 

This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 13 of Grounding and Strength 14-Day Beginner Yoga Challenge.

Great class. I appreciate you cueing us now with which leg to use - it makes it so much easier. Thank you.

Did this class as part of the 14 day challenge - Melissa never disappoints - one of my favourite teachers. Lovely gentle core class with a short flow and excellent guidance form Melissa as always.

Woo hoo! This was a nice core workout. I felt this one a bit the next day, which is a good thing.

This is a wonderful getting back into yoga routine for me and my second day back into it! Thank you Melissa!

This is almost perfect as a prenatal core workout. I’m 27 weeks pregnant, and everything was exactly what I needed— except for the poses laying on my belly! I can still lay face down for now, but it’s not the most comfortable thing, so I just did a modified cobra during those parts. I love Melissa’s calm energy, and she’s been one of my favorite DYWM instructors for some years now. Would it be possible to get more of these Pilates-yoga fusion classes?? Especially for us pregnant folks? ;)

Hi! Thanks for your kind words! I forwarded this comment to Julia Crouch - one of our new teachers - who is a mama , yoga teacher and pilates teacher. She has a few few prenatal videos here already. I can cover your pilates fusion needs but I am clueless in the pre/post natal world! Hope that helps :)

Hi @kmakowsky! Melissa let me know about your inquiry. We're certainly working on some Prenatal/Postnatal Fusion classes for the future! I've just filmed several prenatal pilates and yoga classes so you can expect to see them on the website soon! Stay tuned and please reach out with any other questions or comments. We love to hear from you!

Thank you for bringing Pilates movements into this practice. I miss the Barre Pilates classes I regularly attended before Covid-19. I’ve done the DYWM Pilates/Yoga Challenge and hope to do it again this winter.

Great class. Love Melissa's encouraging words, options for different poses, and pacing. And the waves......Can't go anywhere here in locked down Ontario so it is soooo wonderful to see and hear the ocean.

Thank you Melissa! I really enjoyed this class. Nice sequencing, nice pace, nice selection of movements. I feel calm and gently energized, with a smile on my face.
