Fantastic instructor. Gentle thorough and continuous yet unobtrusive instructions. Very basic but very nice for an easy, slow practice.

Nice way to spend 30 minutes.

I think what makes this "advanced beginner" is that there's some instruction -- not overly detailed, but enough to get you through the poses. You don't hold them forever nor is this power yoga. Starts with some sun salutations, moves into warrior I & II (I broke a little sweat here), triangle pose modified with a block, then a forward bend with arms stretched behind you. Moves to the floor for happy baby and a couple backbends (but not full wheel). You end with a spinal twist on your back before savasana. Good for stretching out the back and hips. I would have liked more neck/shoulder stretches and a seated spinal twist at the end but it was easy to tack that on my own.

Love Melanie's classes, this was definitely not an advanced beginners though.

Melanie,
Thank you for this video. I've been out of my yoga routine for 2 years, and I was almost afraid to try it again. I haven't been taking care of or being kind to my body, and I now have several injuries as a result. I decided to come back to myyogaworks. I chose this "Advanced Beginners" video looking for a class where I could move slowly and carefully, without tons of explanations of basic poses. This was perfect for what I needed today. I knew how to modify for some of my injuries, and the pacing gave me enough time to do that. Thank you.

Perfect combination of getting your pulse up with stretching the hips, back and shoulders. Great when I don't have the time or motivation to do an hour class. I always feel great and energized after this class
