Get up and clear out any tension and stress in your body with this quick level one practice.
Thank you for this fantastic practice! It was very gentle, but it still felt like I released some tension and stress. The teacher provided excellent and clear instruction and she did it in a calming and gentle way. Thank you!!
Loved this practice. Perfect pace and poses to have my baby on the mat with me.
great slow practice for anytime of day. Melanie has a calming and grounding presence with good cues for the poses
Great after strenuous dat picking grapes!
Excellent first thing in the morning. Gentle yet effective.
after doing HIIT/tabata, this flow is gentle and calming
This workout is my favorite! It's the perfect way to start the day! Love it!
Quite a few of the longer classes don't provide you with a lot of time to gently open different areas of the body (my hamstrings and hip flexors need a lot of love). This practice is solid on its own, but I really like to use it to it prepare for a longer class.
I've been recovering from an injury and needed something gentle and well-rounded to ease back into my practice. With Melanie leading, this class fit the bill well. Starts out with slow sun salutations then moves into chair, warrior II, extended side angle pose, low lunge, slow core work to get you to the floor, then reclining pigeon. Despite the slower pace, don't be fooled; Melanie packs a lot into 23 minutes! Generated slight amount of heat about 15 minutes in with the warrior sequence.Would have liked more neck/shoulder stretches, but overall I feel good -- especially my spine and hips.
Everything about this class was perfect: the pace, the poses, the flow, the cues...just what I needed.
This was a great pace for someone like me who is returning to yoga practice after a 3-month break (and long weekend out of town). Melanie's voice is very calming and the end of my practice felt like a short meditation. Just what I needed before starting my work week!
I normally do level 2 class, but have a lower back injury. This was perfect for stretching my hips and back moving at a slower pace.
enjoyed this first thing in the morning. just the right amount of movement, stretch and focus. short but worthwhile!
Mia is such a calming presence.... after some grueling circuit training this was a nice and easy flow to clam down to and to get a nice stretch in my hammies
That was great for stretching and relaxing!
I think this is a wonderful class for that time of day around dusk, when you are shifting your rhythm from day to evening.
This was a great start to what I know will be a busy day. The verbal cues were excellent--I was able to practice from my phone without looking. Thank you!
Day 5 of 14: Thank you I'm here!
Melanie is a great instructor. Class stretched out some ares that really needed it.
This is another lovely class by Melanie. Though fairly short, your body is still worked from head to toe. If you don't have a lot of time, this is a great one to try!
A good fairly quick practice, would definitely recommend for beginners, she really walks through the poses. Melanie is a great instructor.
Melanie is one of my favorite instructors. This class is great for releasing tension at the end of a work day, or opening up your joints at the beginning of the day.
Melanie's videos are always my favorites. This had some tough poses and some relaxing ones. I felt it was a good mix in a short time.
