If you're having issues with the player:
Slow down with this gentle, restorative yoga practice that has very few poses, long stretches of silence and perfect guidance from Melissa. You will feel yourself sink into deep relaxation while supporting your body with soft and blankets and a bolster (if you have one), feeling at ease at all times. This class is great for the back in particular, due to the gentle spinal bends and twists. If you don't have a bolster, learn how to make a bolster at home.
Equipment: Block, Bolster, Blankets
Style: Gentle Yoga, Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yoga for Anxiety Stress


I did an 8 klm walk on my trails today and then came home to this lovely restorative practice.
It had all my favourites that I learned in Chacala. Thanks,

I love the space in the restorative. Too often, yoga instructors talk too much during practice. Melissa gives you so much space to rest inside your own body and listen to the rhythm of your own breath and blood.

Brilliant for my aching body after too much gardening or too much sitting around. I return to this practice over and over again and also use it to introduce people to resortative yoga. Absolutely wonderful. Thank you.

A really nice restorative class with gentle guidance to get in and out of the poses. Not YIN. Great if you need a break from the day or need to move from a busy day to evening.

Thanks for this class! I was quite sleepy going into it and thought it being a restorative one it might make me more sleepy. But I actually felt a little refreshed by the time I got off the mat. I like Melissa's gentle and direct instructions.

There is definitely something strange about this clip. I got this message twice Error Code: PLAYER_ERR_TIMEOUT
Session ID: 2018-04-23:f4ecb92825e4b41ed354abc4 Player Element ID:1. Also this was the second time I loaded the class tonight as the first session froze at 13 mins. That being said its a lovely class when it works (despite having to get up to tweak the computer). I wonder whether other people have had problems? It is strange that there are only two comments under this video. I'd love Melissa to rerecord this one; its perfect after a day's hard work in the garden. Cheers.

Hi, Deborah Lilly. Sorry about the video issue you've been experiencing. Can you tell me 1) are you a subscriber? and 2) were you logged into your account when you played the video?

I have done the oceanside practice a lot of times and enjoyed it but this one gives more opportunity for meditation in the long silences. It really helped me to feel rested and get a sense of where I'm at. Lovely class.

Felt like a spa day at home. Perfect for me after a little too late night out. Thank you.
