Hi Melissa,

Thanks for a great practice. I did it after a home kettlebell workout.

Coincidentally I'm visiting Victoria over the next few days. If I can get away from the kids, I'll try to come to the studio.

Love this practice! It especially feels great after a session of strength training, a great way to cool down after and stretch everything out.

Thank you Melissa!
My new year's resolution was to start and commit to yoga a day for my mind, body and spirit. Thankfully I found you the first week of the new year:)and have been coming back daily. I particularly love bend and stretch!
When can we expect more??
The 20-30min videos are the best as I can fit them into my morning routine.
Thank you, thank you!

Somehow all of my yoga videos disappeared, and I was really looking for a good yoga stretch. This provided that. I will be back for this and others! Thank you!

Delightful. Perfect video for a day when you don't feel up to a vigorous class but also don't want quite a restorative practice. Right in between the two and just what I needed.
