Nice, gentle flow...I wasn't

Nice, gentle flow...I wasn't feeling 100% when I did this video so I found it the perfect amount of movement and slow enough that I didn't fall over from all my sinus issues

Changed to Intermediate

I think you're right, GetFitAnnie. This is closer to an intermediate class. I've changed it now.
Take care,

I used to take Melissa's

I used to take Melissa's classes when I lived in Victoria. Loved this one - I didn't find it too challenging, but it was a nice workout and a great way to relax while traveling for work. Thanks, Melissa!

Melissa's are my favourite alternative to Fiji's
MsLydia 3 years ago

This video is a great alternative to when i don't feel like/have energy/time to do Fiji's classes. A challenging yet gentle video. Did have to stop once (dog), but continued right to the end. Will be going back to this one

Relaxing core workout!
rpicklehirst 3 years ago

How often can you say it was relaxing to workout your core? Thanks Melissa for making that happen. I will keep coming to this video over and over :) You’re voice is so calm and tranquil maybe you just make it soothing to work so hard!!! Thanks again!!

great teaching style

Teaching style was clear enough for a beginner but allowed me to challenge myself, thanks!

Wonderful class!

This class was just challenging enough for me - and I love Melissa's teaching style. The reminders to relax in the jaw and face as well as the shoulders are perfect - it's exactly where I tense up and forget to release! Thank you for this wonderful class.

forgiveness and...humor
galleza 2 years ago

For those days when you don't have it in you to flirt with your limits. Just the right dose to get rid on that lower back pain after a long day standing on your feet at work. I really liked the reminder to "use humor with your balance poses"...Yoga could really use some humour indeed! A bit of self-derision is such a powerful tool to lighten up and an such an easy, direct path to self-forgiveness!

Thank you Melissa! I've done the routine 4 times now and I love the gentle sweet approach by this instructor. It's gentle, but you still get a workout.
