Morning Hatha Yoga

Beginner I

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!

Melissa, Thank you for making yoga so enjoyable for me. Your style is extremely comforting and warm while still maintaining clarity and authenticity. Your classes allow me to feel stretch/space in all the places I need it most. Thanks so much!

Thank you Melissa. I didn't realize just how many stretches I already knew and have come across in some or other exercise class in my life. Not as daunting as I expected. Also thanks for reminding me to breathe. Strange how we don't do that properly. Will be doing your class again and again :-)

First yoga session ever and I loved it. The pace was perfect. I'm a non-athlete and really don't enjoy exercise but this was really enjoyable - so much so that when the session ended I was wondering where the time went. I'm looking forward to doing this again. Thank you, Melissa!

Perfect wake up before night shift! I don't need as much coffee at work and I'm all stretched out and ready to go. Thanks!

Thanks for the wonderful class Melissa! I needed a gentle but meaningful "day launcher" - that's exactly what I received...
Peace~

This is a great "I don't want to get out of bed so I'll take it easy" kind of yoga video. It's great for slowly stretching out the body. She takes a nice pace and allows time to personalize the practice. This includes adding more advanced stretches or taking it slow. This was great for me because I recently hurt my leg and needed to take it slow. I will return again and again to improve my strength with this video for a good morning wake up! Namaste!

I tried to do this to wake up in the morning but maybe I should try something more difficult. I found that she didn't allow enough time to hold poses and she talked too much during poses. I need to be able to fully settle into my pose and my breath and it's hard to do when someone keeps repeating things.

Ha, I just rewatched this and I do talk a lot in it! But I don't hold the poses too long on purpose - I'm trying to keep you moving in the morning. But I totally agree there is more talk than needed. If you try out some of my newer videos on the site you may like them better. I'm constantly refining and trying to speak less.

The weather where i live can get very muggy and humid in the summer, making me exhausted the minute i get out of bed. I feel unable to do anything all day usually but after this gentle yoga session i felt very energized and ready to get things done!

I did this after a grueling HIIT workout. It totally relaxed me and stretched all the muscle groups I used. I was hardly sore the next morning after the workout. Thanks!

I used this as a post-run stretching session, and it was perfect.
