Looking for A Way to Start My Day

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

Mindful relaxation

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.

Relaxed Workout

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.

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.

Core with 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!

I like Melissa's instruction. She provides excellent reminders about abdominals and core work. I think we've all heard at one point not to let our ribs pop, belly pouch out, and stop if the exercise is starting to involve other muscles. I've certainly heard it hundreds of times. When I hear Melissa say "mind the ribs" am I usually popping my ribs...darn straight! ;-)

I'm happy to do this class again and again. Great flow. I always welcome abds-core work and appreciate the "ribs", 'low back" ...reminders.

The class flows well. Thanks Melissa

Feeling relaxed, content, release

Thanks Melissa. Felt restless and angry going into this class. Feel relaxed and at ease coming out of it. Bookmarked this one to come back to!
