Great Start!

This is a great start back into yoga. I've been away from yoga for a few months as I've gotten into a more active exercise routine for weight loss and muscle building. I found that my feet began to hurt and that my back kinked up and in general I felt tight all over. I'm gaining balance by getting back into yoga to lengthen those muscles again and strengthen my core. This is a great practice for that -- active enough to get the heart beating a bit, but slow enough to be mindful. Thank you. I'll be doing this practice often.

Loved it loved it loved it.

I have been away from practicing yoga for awhile. David's stretching classes have been helping me work out all the kinks from injury and arthritis, so thankful for his classes. This class was my first flow in a long time, and it was perfect: challenging, pace and thoughtful instruction. I loved it, and I love yoga! Thank you :)

This is a very nice and perfeclty made beginner yoga tutorial! I myself usually do intermediate level tutorials, but thought to try this one today. I really see that it is good for beginner level and wished to have done it when I started with Yoga. The teacher is Melissa is very very good! She remains calm all the time, and I love how she puts the pressure of students and makes them feel that they just have to relax in order to be able to do it! Thank you! :)

Happy core, happy back

I love Melissa's classes, so when I woke up unable to move from sciatica/knee pain, I knew where to go. I can walk again, and think I'll do this class at least a few times a week. Thank you!!!!!!

Almost didn't do this class because of the length but I'm glad I did! She's an amazing teacher and I love her style. I'll be doing more of her ones in the future. Loved the care on the lower back.

Good overall class
