I'm very new to yoga; just started a few weeks ago. And, I've just finished 7 weeks of physical therapy for neck, shoulder, and lower back issues. This class incorporates several of the stretches I need to continue doing. It also goes at a nice pace, so I can keep up with the it. I've tried a few different teachers, and so far Melissa is my favorite. Thanks Melissa and thanks doyogawithme!!

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.
