I have been doing Yoga on again off again for years. I now live somewhere that makes it difficult to get to an in person class. I have never been a fan of video workouts. There is either to much instruction and talking or not enough. However this class was perfect a great way to get back into the yoga zone. Thanks

Feeling stretched and relaxed. Deep breaths. Thank you.

Restorative for sure

Restorative might mean working out the kinks in knees or back or neck (and I needed all that too)but I feel restored in my soul. I've had much sadness and this was soothing, reassuring, and encouraging. I've been examining the root meaning of comfort as to strengthen and or support. This leaves me feeling comforted and ready for a new day.
Thank you, Namaste

I just wanted to point out that Melissa presents this class as an intermediate one but it's listed as one for beginners :)

Thank you Melissa!

Your yoga videos are my favourite companions when doing yoga at home! Your voice is so calming and you explain everything at a pace that is perfect for me. You remind me of a yoga teacher I had in another city who was like a sun (in the best of ways). Thank you!

I really love the routines that use the whole body and not just certain areas, so this was perfect for me! Your voice is very calming and your instruction is easy to follow without looking up. :) Thank you for sharing!

Thank you for a lovely class. I have been getting a little too comfortable with a few classes I do regularly because they are easy for me now. I turned to this one to break out of my comfort zone and it was terrific - challenging while gentle, which is what I need. Thank you!

Awesome instruction!

Wonderful class! I loved the detailed instructions and the range of poses (not just sun salutations-yay!). I have been practicing for 15 years and always had pretty good balance, but this class taught me to use the core for better balance. I can't believe how much having a focus on the core helps for every pose! I liked how at the start of the class she brought attention to any tension and our emotions/mood.

My favorite part of Melissa's instruction is how she always directed one to move out of a pose when one is ready. I never heard that before. It certainly makes a positive difference in the flow and also brings greater awareness to the body.
