I had abdominal surgery two months ago. My surgeon recently cleared me to start practicing yoga again. This was the perfect first class back for me. Thank you!

An OG classic! Have been doing this one for years and it always feels so good to come back after a rusty stretch. My only tiny irk is the original "flute-y, yoga-ish) background music was changed to the piano background music heard here. Thankfully, you can get the original on YouTube. ; ) Love you, Melissa!!
