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.

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!

I love this creative class. The side stretches and circling movements really helped to release some tension.
Thank you Melissa!

I love Melissa's classes. Her style reminds me of when I lived at Kripalu yoga center.

I found my way to DYWM from stumbling upon one of Melissa's videos on YouTube. She is my yoga-spirit animal. And this is the absolutley perfect way to get my middle-aged morning creaky body going when I only have about 15 minutes. I have my laptop and yoga mat near my bed and literally roll out and wake up my mind, circulation and muscles with this perfect combo of stretches. It's perfect for an exercise warm-up or when you only have that small window in the morn to loosen up before heading out the door. Thank you, Melissa!!!

Thank you DYWM for this great routine that I can do. I'm preparing for knee surgery so this routine is perfect for me as I get ready for my day, it's easy on my knees except the leg swings but I just skip that part. It's energizing and loosens up my body so I can move freely and easily. I'm looking forward to more challenging routines after surgery.
I appreciate Melissa's clear, encouraging direction and the speed she sets as we move through the routine. By the time the session is over I'm ready and eager to go.

I didn't want to get up and exercise this morning. Compromise was to look for something that didn't feel too challenging. I just finished and am now smiling and ready for my day. Especially appreciated the gentle reminder at the end to recall how I wanted to be today. Thank you!!

For true beginner.
Nice and easy to do and very effective in waking up the spine and hips.

Not much for legs, but really really good waking up movement for the spine. Great to do in the mornings.

I woke up really stiff and sore in the neck, after the 5 minutes of this class I could feel everything starting to loosen up. By the time I'd finished the class I was buzzing and not sore at all. I love this class for a quick 'Morning Slow Hatha Yoga Flow' fix!

Somehow I always find myself with slightly less than 30 minutes in the morning for a yoga practice - this class is perfect in duration, calm instruction, speed, stretches and poses... just so lovely. Thank you Melissa

DYWM has many good instructors, but Melissa feels like an extension of myself. Some mornings, I just need about 15 minutes of stretching. This particular clip is awesome for rolling out of bed and warming up before hitting the treadmill or walking the pup. My joints were cracklin' like a bag of pop rocks and it never felt so good. Whoo-hoo! Thank you for this awesome video (with cozy tribal tunes).

This is a lovely way for me to come back to yoga after almost 3 months with virtually no exercise due to a broken leg. The body is "creaky-cracky" (love that term) but it still feels amazingly better after this class. Thankyou again Melissa - always love your classes.

I really like the speed of this one, starts slow and is not overwhelming while I'm still waking up. Also, not doing the cool down after helps me use this as a stretch before jumping on the bike. Then I wrap up with either your Bend and Stretch or Twist and Stretch session. Thanks Melissa, I just love your classes!!

Oh man, this was wonderful for me. I did interval running/walking yesterday for the first time in A REALLY LONG TIME. So this was perfect to energy my semi-sore body. Stretched out a lot of areas that needed to be stretched and definitely energized me! Thank you and Namaste.
