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

This yoga session is so great to come back too. It balances and relaxes my muscles as I do Senior Fitness classes to keep my muscles strong. Thank you Melissa

When I was attending University, I really wanted to try yoga for it's exercise, as well as, stress-relieving benefits. I was discouraged after attending a "beginner" yoga class there. The lady teaching the class raised her voice and sounded more like a drill instructor throwing out discouraging statements if a student's form was not correct or if they couldn't hold a pose long enough. Needless to say, it was not an enjoyable experience. I decided to give it a go again at home by myself in a less hostile enviornment. I came across one of your videos and it completely turned things around for me. Not only did I discover a love for yoga, but I was actually good at it as well. Better than I thought I could be. Thanks for your words of encouragement and non-judgmental style. You'll always be my favorite yogi.

Such a great way to wake up! These classes are such a gift during the shelter in place due to COVID - the balance of the mental and physical, strength and relaxation, all feel so important. Thank you!

Thank you for the excellent spoken instructions in this class. I use a small iPad with a speaker and depend on a teacher’s verbal guidance for my practices. Even though I preview a class, I still find the spoken instructions are important.
I appreciate the outdoor beach setting for this class. Because of Covid-19, I wasn’t able to find any outdoor yoga classes in my area this summer. Thank you for taking the time and effort to film outdoors. 1 year ago

Good class but will have to start watching without sound because you sometimes talk too much.

Hi Melissa,

I have been doing some of your classes for a few years now from Dublin, Ireland. Now that my kids are at home, you have become their favourite teacher! 'Choose Melissa Mum, I like her!' is what they sing as I log on to do a class:) Thank you for your classes and I hope that you are keeping well.)
