The perfect balance of relaxing and challenging, especially for those times when I haven't practiced in a while. My favorite class on this site!

Perfect for stretching the whole body after a workout

This practice was so perfect when I woke up feeling sore and tight from a strenuous day of activity the previous day (yoga/pilates + rock climbing + running). I felt so much better after this gentle practice, and still had the benefits of feeling that I had engaged with my body and had my muscles woken up. Thanks Melissa, you're the best!

I really enjoy this session.

Thank you! I have doing the streches with you for 2 days now and feel great. In the past I have joined numerous classes and have found very few instructors that allow me to focus on my practice. You on the other hand I find you very soothing and encouraging.
