Thanks so much, very high quality class, as always on this site. I loved the lying upper body twists at the end, really opened up shoulders. Thanks you again, look forward to trying more of your classes.

I loved this class, it really helped me get the hang of using my core and breathing without poses that were too difficult. I really liked the variations mentioned also since I am a beginner! Thank you.

Thank you Melissa for your great classes. I have done them a number of times now from the comfort of my own home:)
I find your style very soothing, relaxing and meditative as well as effective and nourishing. Thank you so much for offering these. Some intermediate classes by you would be great!

Melissa, thank you so much for this gentle and supportive class. Your soothing energy flows through your voice; the music is wonderful without being overpowering; and the movements address the tightness in back and hips. My first venture into on-line yoga has been more than I had hoped for.

As an older member returning to Yoga may I say this is a brilliant site and a brilliant session with Melissa. It embodies everything I remember about Yoga and its benefits.
