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

Thanks Melissa. Yesterday I have my 2nd moderna vaccine so today was a good day for restorative yoga for me. I am planning to attend your In Bloom retreat on Sault Spring this coming November hoping that travel within Canada is more relaxed.

I was feeling fatigued today (I'm fasting), and this practice was perfect. I feel rested, restored, and rejuventated. I did have a bit of an issue at the beginning making sure that it was still playing and nothing happened, but now that I know it starts with a long silence, I will be okay with that.

I love your teaching, Melissa. Makes me feel very safe.. Namaste :)

Thanks Melissa, this was great. I had some tech difficulty for the first 11 minutes of the video - just so you know.

I play a little music on my other device for my restorative practice. It would be great if music was added to the making of restorative videos - especially long practices like this one.

Take care,

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.
