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.

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.

Great class for waking up the mind, the spirit, and for energizing me as I go out into the world. I'll be doing this one again!

This was such a great way to wake up this morning. I will be putting this in regular rotation. That final breath of joy did it. I am smiling!

I am a beginner yoga student and I loved how this video didn't make me feel like most yoga videos do. I often feel that I need to perfectly achieve a certain stretch or position, but this instructor made it very easy and relaxing. It felt ok to make some mistakes because I wasn't risking my entire exercise. This video made me feel accomplished. I'm excited to practice more!

This is just perfect for a morning session to awaken my body. I feel so much better inside out after this class. It was my first class with Melissa, but she became one of my favorite teacher here, she has a wonderful personality which catches you even through the screen. Thank you!

I think that, after taking this class, I can see that I need to get back into the habit of creating a short morning yoga sequence to get the juices flowing. This class was perfect for this morning when I wanted to roll out my yoga mat and move but did not necessarily need a full hour practice. Thank you!

I am an old Yogi who lost my way and today is the beginning of getting back onto my mat after a long hiatus. This was a lovely and refreshing sequence - and I notice I am smiling as I type this because I am remembering why I love Yoga so much!!! Thank you!

Any time I do this practice I always feel so much better. Both in body and spirit. Always feel better when I'm finished.
Not just for mornings, uplifting any time of the day. Thank you.

I have to drive 5 hours today and I wanted to do some yoga that wouldn't tire me out, but I wanted to move a little. This was wonderful. It was absolutely perfect. Melissa brings a lightness and joy to this particular class. Thank you!

I didn't do this in the morning but during my 2 year old nap time. I was feeling pretty tired before this and am so happy I didn't skip this one even though I did in the afternoon. It really re-awakened my mind and body! Thanks so much!

I do a lot of other classes on this site, ranging from easy to advanced, but I have found that I keep coming back to this one over and over. It is a perfect start to the day when there are only a few minutes to practice, it is a great short class to add on at the end of another longer, stronger class, and it is a perfect middle-of-the-day interlude. I love that there is no shivasana at the end of this one, I love the breath of joy, I love how Melissa flows into releasing any little tight spots. Just a wonderful little practice. Thank you Melissa and DYWM!

I've incorporated pieces of this routine into my everyday wakeup routine that I do without a video. It is fun, energizing and both my body & mind feel great afterwards. Quick, happy way to start the day. Thanks Melissa!

I've been doing yoga every day first thing in the morning and this has become my go-to class for work days when I wake up feeling tight and low-energy and only have time for a quick yoga session. This class is gentle enough to do no matter how I feel and always helps me to loosen up and feel more energized and motivated for the day.

Great jump start to the morning! Love the "get to your day" approach...it will help me not to dilly dally. Also warmed up all the key spots even in a short time which is great for mornings when I only have a little bit of time.

I have so much trouble doing yoga in the morning because my muscles are so stiff. But, if I let yoga be an afternoon activity I often skip it for other priorities. So, I developed my own morning routine to loosen my stiff muscles before following a video. But now I can follow Melissa which makes me so happy! Although, I am happy to report that the doyogawithme.com videos taught me well because my routine and Melissa's are very similar. One day I will do it all on my own, but for now I am happy to have a guide :)

Thank you! I awoke this morning with a sore shoulder/neck from sleeping heavily on one side....
Your hatha flow was a gentle release for the tender spot! and it got the blood pumping. I began the practice with an intention to let go of my stress in the body and was grateful and rejuvenated by the end.
Ready to rock!
Namaste

For me it is very fast . if she can show little slowly it will be good . too many different move and too quick she is switching.

I've often found that I'd like to slow down some videos. YouTube has that option, I wonder if there is a similar option for Vimeo but it hasn't been turned on as an option (playback speed). It would be a great added feature to this site's videos!!

Don't give up Rashmi, keep doing the routine and soon you will be able to anticipate the next move. Eventually you won't need the video at all, you'll know the routine by heart.

Many thanks for this - it was quick and fun. Music was a little out of synch, in odd percussion and tempo. But Melissa is always excellent!
