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

Is this Beginner or Intermediate?

Hello-- The video is listed as beginner, but Melissa says it's intermediate when she introduces the practice. I am a beginner myself, so I don't want to overdo it. Is this filed incorrectly as beginner? Thanks!

Yes, I'd say it's solidly

Yes, I'd say it's solidly beginner. I love it. There is one move (going from side plank to quad stretch) that is prolly intermediate; I modify it or skip it. Enjoy

So much to work on in this video

This was my first video, and my first yoga class. Melissa is wonderful and I feel I could keep coming back to this one video, there is so much meat to work on. Fantastic, loved it.
