Perfect practice. I

Perfect practice. I constantly struggle to open my chest and shoulders and neck. I never knew to keep my chin lower than forehead when on my back. I always learn through your classes. Definitely a favorite. Keeping correct posture helps so much with my neck and shoulder pain. Thank you Melissa! Would pilates help with the strength training you mentioned for the upper back?

Thanks Melissa - I am looking into Pilates (maybe with the reformer) to supplement my yoga practice. Yes, I like to go to live studio classes in addition to this site, to get corrections.

Thank you so much! What a wonderful class. My posture felt so much better afterwards and I didn't feel as though I was forcing it. I also loved the long meditation time. Thank you.
