This is a great class. As a desk worker and a student I sit far too often and doing this every morning before my day has greatly helped me. Please make another longer version (~45 minutes) of the same style poses.

One bit of advice to make future videos better: Focus on making sure the sides are even. For example there is one section the first side is 4:45-5:50 and the second side is 5:53-6:38 I always notice how the second side feels rushed and doesn't feel balanced. I really like the exercises done here and wish they were longer/same amount of time

Thank you!

I feel great after my first session with beginning Hatha Yoga for a health spine.

I have done yoga all my life but have been so busy these past 5 years with school and work, I had been lax. My back and spine really needed this.

Thank you Melissa. I loved your care and pace with is style.

I am coming back again and again and hopefully will be able to advance after a while.
