I’m new to yoga (about a month into it), so I was a bit wary to try this class when Melissa said it was more of an intermediate class, but I’m so glad I tried it. I modified a few moves, but was able to do the class with no problems. It’s challenging for beginners, but it’s also fun and you can really feel the core strength building and getting stronger. Great class!

Just had back surgery, not ready for intermediate yet so when she said it was intermediate I almost didn't do this routine. I read some of the other comments and decided I'd go for it, so glad I did! It's a great beginner workout and really good for balance practice again.

This was a wonderful just right video for a "returning" beginner. I really enjoyed it.
I did hesitate to start it because you have it listed as a beginner class and Melissa introduces it as
an intermediate class. I was very glad I continued with it

This practice provides just enough challenge when the energy is low. Soothing and helps to rejuvenate the body and mind.

This is pretty much a longer version of your Morning Hatha Yoga class, which I enjoy very much. This is great.

This was exactly what I was looking to add to my evening routine! The perfect amount of work and relaxation for a beginner yogi like myself.

It's good to back off a bit. I am usually working at an intermediate level. But have been having continuing lower back issues. This was perfect. I really appreciate the reminders to stop if your "back gets cranky". I will keep much of this class in mind as I do yoga, at whatever level, in the future. Thank you Melissa.

Thank you so much Melissa, your video has helped me so much! I have fractured my back 3 times and need to get my core strong. Each time I do this video my back feels so much better! It's very safe and you explain the poses so well and when to breath!
