I love the squat stretch and the foot on the top of the other leg stretch. These two positions did more for me than any other, although the whole sequence left me feeling amazing. Very useful and informative class.

This is my go to class whenever I have hip or lower back pain. I feel pain free by the end of class.
Melissa is wonderful! I am so thankful I found your website!
