Morning Slow Hatha Yoga Flow

Beginner I
Some people have trouble waking up in the morning, so Melissa designed this class so that you can move slowly at first, to shake the sleep out of your eyes, before moving into poses that you need to wake up for. This is a gentle class that will feel deeply satisfying if you allow yourself to sink into it.

This is my go-to class whenever I manage to do an early morning class... and it is so good I have even done it at other times of the day :-)

This is my favourite morning class! It's gentle enough for my multilevel spondylosis and arthritis. Finishing with - Breath of Joy is fun and energising. Thank you Melissa!

I haven’t done this class in a long time, but was feeling sluggish this morning and rediscovered it. A really awesome, short class that made me feel much more alert and invigorated for the day.

I am so glad that I came back to this class. It feels great , not to hard on my sore left hamstring which I injured about 4 weeks ago.
Thank you Melisssa. You are fantastic!

A totally awesome to start my day. Stretches out the pain from a bad sleep (and old injuries) and clears the cob webs in the mind.

Cheers Melissa for this class.

This is such a lovely little class! It's helping me. It's short enough that I can generally complete it before the tiny one wakes up or pulls focus, yet it covers it a very thorough physical territory. Thank you.

Thanks Melissa. Calypso and I really enjoyed your class this morning. We loved having you in our living room teaching yoga while in self-isolation.

As we find our way through the global pandemic of Covid-19, you’re helping me find a calm center so I can face another day of quarantine and disinfecting doorknobs, lightswitches, faucets, counters, etc. Stay well and thank you! This and Legs Up the Wall are great gifts right now.

Self isolation in the UK because of the Corona 19 virus. This is a lovely routine anytime to stretch your body and calm your mind. Thank you Melissa.

Loved this class! I don't usually comment but I enjoyed this class so much I felt I had to make a comment :) I agree with the post below - what a fun class! I even laughed out loud at one point! By the end of it, I finished with a big smile on my face. What a wonderful way to move forward into the day. Thank you. Many blessings x

Fun isn't usually a word I associate with yoga. It's usually relaxing, tranquil, energizing, challenging... This was pure fun! Straight up enjoyable :) Thank you!

Wonderful morning wake up. Gentle and cleansing. The video kept cutting out. No obvious reason why. Hopefully next time technology will decide to behave for me! Namaste.

I was looking to bring yoga back into my life and thought I would start with 20 minute morning sessions. This class is really wonderful. I didn't truly think it would help me wake up but it did! I also enjoyed how my body felt much looser at the end of the session. Thank you so much!
