Thank you Melissa. As always, a lovely class. For myself this is a perfectly paced lesson with a great balance between working and relaxing. Definitely bookmarked.

As always, I appreciated Melissa's clear instructions. I also felt so relaxed at the end. However, I think this is more of a beginner class. I could've used more challenge.

I completely agree. Melissa is a wonderful instructor but this is a lovely, gentle beginner class but not a challenge for those looking for one which is what I had expected with the Intermediate I label. The description was fitting. I should have paid more attention to it.

I've been out of practice for a few months. This was a beautiful practice and a very good way to get back in. It's also my first class I've done w/Melissa and enjoyed her pace, tone of voice and clear instruction. Thank you! :)

I really enjoy your classes Melissa thank you. I notice you haven’t done any new ones for a while. Are going to put any more online soon? I do love your quiet presentation with plenty of peaceful space between instructions. Really blissful.

This is a very satisfying class, starting slowly with a good meditation and warmup, and then progressing to a slightly challenging flow. With a wonderful background music and, as always, with Melissa's smile and sweet voice. Thank you very much.

Like magic, I feel more energized yet very relaxed. Melissa's class was the the perfect antidote to a busy work and home life. Do Yoga with Me helps balance, sooth and strengthen my body.

With deepest gratitude,

Thanks for another wonderful class, Melissa! This was my favorite class so far in this challenge. I love how you instruct all of your classes & somehow always know when I need to be reminded to breathe and to relax the muscles where I have all of my tension held. I look forward to completing many many more of your classes!

I never feel more fully accepted than during Melissa's classes. Such a beautiful, calming energy in each one. Thank you Melissa, you have definitely become my favorite teacher on this site, even among so many wonderful instructors!

This was a great class, but I kept stopping the video to see what that high pitched sound was. I guess it is part of the music? I found it quite distracting. Other than that, I think Melissa is becoming my favourite instructor!

It is interesting how music can affect us differently - I LOVED the background "hum" to the music and it caused me to go very deep into a blissful trance-like state during longer held poses and shavasana. I was pleased to see she shared the artist and song name! I want to buy it to loop for sleeping at night! This was just the class I needed today - thank you Melissa!

Fantastic flow for this class. The music was a very interesting choice. I can see why some others commented that it was unpleasant and sounded a little like feedback. I rather liked it, but then I like music with feedback. I felt that it helped me focus, like chanting om... Lovely studio, by the way.

Thanks again, Melissa, for a wonderful class! I can't believe it's the first time I do this flow... I was feeling like going to bed and stay there for the whole day, but I pushed myself into this practice and was the best choice. My favorite yoga teacher by far :)

A great class! It's the perfect pace for me. Challenging but slow. Thank you. I'd like to have a series of these classes. I love the yoga challenges because I don't have to decide which class to do. It's all picked out!

Thank you for a gorgeous wake-me-up class, Melissa. I'm ready for the day now!
(i did notice that background noise, though...just a wee bit).

At the end stage of this while lying down, I felt an energy field or something hovering all around my body, from head to toe, about 6 inches from my body. It was like it was a gentle hum. Absolutely incredible. I've never had that happen. It was beautiful and peaceful. Thank you for your kind instruction. What a gift.

I love this practice—it was just the right intensity for where I am. It stretched me a bit, but helped me relax. Excellent, as always. I have to confess; however, that I nearly turned off the video near the beginning because of that high pitched tone that played in the background for nearly the whole practice. Despite all attempts to ignore it and/or rest into it, I found it intensely irritating and will probably be reluctant to try this video again. The rest of the music was beautiful and when the tone disappeared for a bit toward the middle of the practice —pure bliss. I don't know if it's just my speakers, but it would be so nice if that tone went away ... or just down a half step or two. Thank you for this awesome website and these excellent practices! I'm trying to get back on the wagon with yoga after a long hiatus and these are so helpful and kind.

Me too! I thought I was going crazy. Glad to know I'm not the only one who heard it. A true shame, as I too really enjoyed this class.

Melissa's videos on You Tube are what eventually led me to this site and wanting to support the great work done here. Her aura and instruction style are a natural fit for me, and this is one of my favorite sessions. As a middle-aged gal who has practiced off and on for 20+ years, I appreciate finally being able to tune into more of the breathing and subtle nuances of muscular position. "Your foot should be at 2 o'clock" I love detail like that. Melissa does a great job with instructional tips, while ensuring us it is ok to recognize limits or injuries - or just kick back in child's pose for a bit. I love that it is OK TO NOT BE a limber pretzel balancing on your nose with your feet behind your head. (* but, goals!*)

This is a beautiful, gentle flow for waking up fresh out of bed. My muscles were still stiff from sleep as I watched the sun rise to Melissa's soothing guidance. There is still plenty of opportunity to build some heat in the body in this practice, depending on how deeply you take the poses. I always love Melissa's calm, supportive presence in her classes. Thank you!
