This beginner hatha yoga class is a nice way to wake up and start your day, if you only have half an hour to spare. Melissa goes at a nice pace, spending enough time in poses to create a good release, and emphasizing alignment and breath. You will love the way you feel after doing this class!

Equipment: None
Style: Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga


One of my all time faves

Great routine when you only have about 35 minutes. Love Melissa's detailed instruction on form while encouraging you to do what feels right for your body. Nice stretching, poses and gentle lunges are just my speed to warm up for the day. I also like the way she encourages us not to go too swayback when doing the hamstring forward bend stretch move.

Great, gentle, relaxed and stretchy yoga for the morning!

Perfect! Just what I neededto get back after taking a dayoff from a tender lower back. I feel so much better and less stiff. Just enough but not too intense. Great directions. Namaste

Fantastic practice!

After not doing any yoga for over a month, this was the best way to go back into it! I love how I don't have to look to see what to do as you explain everything so clearly (and I'm not even a native English speaker). Thank you so much! Namaste.

I really enjoy this class and the sound of the waves helps me with deep breathing. Melissa is a great teacher and helps me get the most out of each pose.

Hi Melissa,
when you finish the practice with 'thank you for joining me', I always have to say, thank you so much for teaching me!
I love this class, especially on days when waking up is not easy

Woke up feeling tight
stephleest 1 year ago

I woke up feeling like a crumpled piece of paper - my shoulders misaligned, my back and hips feeling knotty and tight - and this class made me feel much better. My body had a lot more movement and flexibility halfway through the class. I can feel a big difference between my first and last few breaths. Thank you Melissa!
