I felt so uplifted by this smooth flowing Hatha class. The transitions were perfect for my energy level today..which was very low. I told myself I wasn't going to eat dinner until I did a yoga class. A lot of dense emotions and physical sensations were released. Thank you Melissa for your grace and ease that you convey.

Same here!

This was such a perfect after-work, "do yoga before you make dinner" class!

Success with side plank (well at least one side completely :))

Love this class and all your classes Melissa. The little tweaks you mention make such a difference in creating space. I especially noticed it with supported triangle, engaging my core and pulling in ribs brough my torso up higher and longer, fantastic!

Awesome class, it really

This class was exactly what I needed today - it helped me to be aware of my low back and hips while building core strength...and reminded me to be gentle with myself while working with injury and tightness. I've been having difficulty coming back to my own yoga practice lately and getting on my mat at all.... Melissa's instruction helped me to reconnect with my breath and my body again this afternoon for the first time in a while. Feeling like I'm coming home into my yoga practice again. Thank you thank you thank you!

Melissa is one of my favorite

Melissa is one of my favorite instructors, and this practice was exactly what I have been wanting. I'm working my way through the beginner challenge because, well, because I'm a beginner, and I have to remind myself regularly to be patient with letting my practice build so that I am truly ready for more advanced flows. Today's yoga let me feel a bit of reward for that patience because I was challenged and am walking away feeling fantastic. Thank you!

Great for going deeper

Really enjoyed Melissa's comforting and encouraging style. I was able to go deeper and create some much needed space in a few neglected areas. Will definitely return to this class and more led by Melissa.
