Another wonderful class, Melissa. Your sequencing, cueing, accessible approach is as enjoyable as it is inspiring.

I am so grateful to Do Yoga w/ Me! It has been a life saver during the last 2-3 years! Were it not for the physical and mental relief that these practices offer, I don't know how I would have coped. Thank you. Deep gratitude!

What an amazing session! I am a beginner in a bigger body and I love these slow flow sessions because they are in a tempo I don't feel left behind in or out of my depth or such. LOVE IT! Felt so good to go through those gentle movements!

SO Good!! After a long day, this class didn't feel like I was on my feet a lot, even though we were standing for a chunk of the class. Classic Melissa with her perfectly timed reminders of the breath and the simple things we forget - to let the judgement go. Still gives you some gentle heat :) while really getting a full body experience. Every part of my body feels more relaxed and stretched out.

Thank you, Melissa! That was just what I needed- the gentle, slow pace and the combo of sitting and standing was perfect for me <3

Enjoyed this class. It’s an excellent way to ease back into your routine after a break. I like it that Melissa talks less. Some talk too much that I feel more tired and overwhelmed just listening to so much instruction. Less is more.

Wonderful slow flow with Melissa’s reliably calming teaching style. The tweeting birds, the waves breaking on the pebbly shore and the Olympics peeking through the clouds in the distance make for a very zen practice.

Love this new short practice. This morning I felt I needed a break from my beginner-to-inter. program and this was perfect. Off to a nice snowshoe this afternoon.

Loved this slow flow class. Love all of Melissa's classes. Her cues for positioning and breathe are so intuitive it is like she knows when I'm tensing a part of my body that needs to be reminded to relax.
