Perfect gentle stretch

I loved this. For me it is the perfect practice to do after a jog. Melissa Krieger's voice is not only soothing, but kind and encouraging. Thank you for this - my favorite so far.

I love experiencing many of the beginner/intermediate classes through DYWM, but still love coming back to this, the first class I practised with Melissa. Melissa's voiceover is very clear, the music gets me into the right mindset, the pace is just right for a beginner class, with some challenging poses that make you realise at the end of the class it's been very beneficial. Thanks Melissa for this and many other classes.
