Great short class to get me rejuvenated and ready to start my day. As always, great instructions Melissa. As a beginner, I was pleasantly surprised I could keep up the pace, thanks to great instruction. I especially enjoyed coming up from forward hold with dropping the hips. This took stress off my lower back. I will incorporate this into my practice. Namaste.

This is my 'go to' class when I am short on time but in need of an energising fix to start my day. This covers a wide range of poses in the time, with Melissa's expert guidance helping me through the set of poses to generate heat before the calming shavasana. Thank you.

I was feeling tired and yucky. I did this practice during my lunch hour and even though it is quick, it totally transformed my day for the better. Thank you ! Will be doing this practice whenever I need a quick pick me up!

I have not participated in yoga for quite some time so finding this video and instructor really helped to calm my nerves as well as reintroduce me into a beautiful world.
The voice of the instructor makes a difference when trying to tap into another level of awareness so listening to Melissa was extremely soothing. Also, this entire video was incredibly enjoyable because of the explanation of poses, breathing, and pace needed to complete each step properly. Thank you for this wonderful video!

Thanks Melissa, I love your classes and this is a great one for when time is short. I really appreciate your careful attention to detail, and options, if one can't quite manage the poses. I'm recovering from injury and this is a gentle way to get back into full body movement.

I have a horrible pinched nerve in my L5 and was having trouble walking. After treatments with my Dr he told me it is a must to visit this site and start doing yoga if I wanted to help heal myself. I immediately started. Only being able to do a few mins at a time starting out I am now able to do the full yoga program and walking much easier. Its hard work but the pay off is wonderful. Thank you so much!

I'm a recovering yoga teacher - just getting back into my own practice and finding what it is that made me fall in love with the practice in the first place. I'm picky about my instructors, and Melissa was phenomenal! Looking forward to doing more of her classes.

A few days ago I got back home after a full 24 hours of flights. Needless to say my body has felt cramped up after sitting in an airplane for so long. I just did this first thing in the morning and my body is thanking me. Now I'm ready for a full day of Lunar New Year festivities. Thank you Melissa!

I recently started to do yoga everyday with melissa's sun salutation and it has felt great, passing from doing it without much connection to a more meaningful practice.
