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

That was a beautiful and perfect practice! Thank you! I loved how the sea waves were breathing along with the vinyasa breathwork and movement <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.

Such a calming and relaxing class - Melissa thank you. Great way to start the program. Excellent idea to make the music available to those who wish to have music, I choose not to so I appreciate the choice. Looking forward to day 2.

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.

Delightful ! A wonderful start to the new year. This was a perfect follow-up to Basics & Beyond series. I also appreciated seeing the calm sea behind Melissa, very soothing.

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.
