Perfect for beginners. Very clear instruction; it worked well to have a voice-over for the video. Felt great.

Wow, hits all the places that need attention when I roll out of bed! I love the quietness of it and the slow steady rhythm. Very easy to follow your directions. And short enough to that I still have time to do my run. Thanks!

This class has become my go to for a good stretch at the end of the day, when I'm winding down towards sleep. Her voice is melodic and she provides good instructions. My body loves this class!!

wonderful! your guide/voice enables one to stay calm, focused, and open to opening one's body, rather than focusing on what is not possible. wonderful! thank you.

I have been coming back to this class for several years now. It is such a nice sequence and Melissa is an excellent teacher.

The piano is very nice, but I prefer it for the studio classes. I miss the ocean sound that was originally with this class. Just a note!

I just re-joined Do Yoga with Me, and this practice reminded me why! There are so many options out there, but the professionalism of a production like this is rare. I love that the video was shot in such a beautiful location, the lovely music, and Melissa's calm instructions.

This is a beautiful practice...coming back to it after a few years. Melissa's style and voice is so soothing, exactly what I needed today.
