I absolutely love this one. It's truly the best end to the day. When I don't have too much energy for a full on yoga class I love to do this. Still an amazing stretch and gives you time to focus on yourself. Thanks Melissa!

Feeling happy now. Thank you

Cured my sciatica
Caples 1 month ago

My whole life I lifted weights and did cardio work outs and thought that yoga was not hard core. For that, I am very sorry. I hurt my back and suffered terrible sciatica pain for months. I decided to try yoga ( at home because I was ashamed) and did this routine. I am not joking, it cured my pain. Now I do this routine several times a week and have no problems. Now I tell everyone about how awesome yoga is and what a great web site this is. Just created an account to leave this comment.

It sounds like too much, but this routine changed my life. Thank you so much!!

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.

A great practice
