It is a great class that I truly enjoy! But is there any way that I can lower the back ground music???

Kelly from DoYogaWithMe here. Unfortunately, no, there is no way to lower the background music. This is part of the reason why most of our newer classes do not have any background music on them; to avoid these sorts of complications. Really sorry about that!

I really enjoy the background music in the classes. It’s relaxing. I hope you guys won’t make all new classes without background music. Thanks! :)

No worries, it still is a very good class! Can you recommend a similar class with less/lower music?

Very gentle stretching practice...nice for winding down before bed. Thanks!

This class was perfect after a workday mostly on my feet. Coming back to yoga after an injury and this practice accommodated limitations but still allowed me to move as fully into a posture as was comfortable. Will definitely revisit this class often.

I just need to say; this video was one of the first classes I tried when I first joined DoYogaWithMe back in 2014. To this day, it is still one my absolute favourite classes to always come back to (Melissa's "Core Strength and Stretch" is another go-to favourite when I'm feeling a bit more of a challenge/strength). This video is the perfect amount of relaxation and stretch, combined with the soft piano music and perfect cues and instruction. Thank you Melissa.

A great class for me to relax from a stressful day at work. It works out the tightness in muscles and is super relaxing! Love the setting and Melissa’s clear instructions.
