Class Description: 
Note: the music for the class has been changed from a hang and flute track to calming, ambient piano. As she did in her popular Twist and Stretch class, Melissa guides you gently through a series of lovely, effective poses, focusing on bending but covering the entire body in an calm, attentive way. Always aware of alignment, Melissa's classes are absolutely perfect for the beginners, gentle yoga lovers, inflexible athletes and 55+, among others.

I really love these gentle classes. The piano is perfect here. It is really good to join and to calm down. Exercise in between.

I really enjoyed this class,except for the music. I find the piano distracting, jarring and a little too loud.

Yesterday was very strenuous on my body and this morning I was feeling very achy and stiff. This practice was just what I needed to stretch myself out. Wonderful practice; thank you Melissa.
