Melanie is the best. I love taking this slow and mellow class at the end of my day. Melanie has the loveliest soothing voice and the class is a true stress releaser. Excellent and seasoned teacher.

Susan L.

Nice slow flow for the morning with stretches at the end.

Lisa D.

-

Appreciate the pace and directions; very clear and easy-to-follow directions. Feel great afterwards!

Shaila M.

This is a nice routine if you want to stretch but not sweat or get your heart rate up too much. It is challenging because it is slow, but it doesn't make you pant. I do really like the instructor - both her voice and attitude.

Ereney H.

-

As always, Melanie's class was what I needed during these trying times. Smooth direction, soothing voice.

Kathryn S.

-

Thank you, this was my first yoga class since the covid quarantine and I feel so much better. See you Yogaworks tomorrow.

Laurie S.

I took Melanie's classes 10 years ago, and then, for one reason or another, took a 10 year yoga hiatus. I am thrilled to have found her again in this format. This is a good, all around and easy class to loosen and relax. Melanie's soothing voice is what we all need at this time!

Susan L.

-

This is a an easy workout that anyone can do. I love this practice! It is my go to for yoga.

Steve T.

Melanie has a really comforting voice, I would love to take more classes with her. I did not build up a sweat, but I wasn't expecting to do that with a Level 1 class. Would do this class again!

Amanda O.

-

I did this class two days in a row after a long break from yoga. It was the right balance between challenging and easy to help me feel like I was practicing as opposed to just doing a few stretches

Rehana O.

Great instruction, very helpful suggestions and reminders for body positioning. Good health to all.

Andrea A.

-

The direction is precise. I was able to feel everything she spoke about. I liked the rhythm and length of this class.

Stephanie S.

-

Super clear instruction with great reminders and tips throughout. This is exactly what I've been looking for to start my mornings. Love the slow flow and held poses where it's actually possible to focus on the breath and move with the breath. So many classes move way too fast for me so that my movements are totally out of alignment with my breathing. Thank you! More classes by Melanie Meltzer please!

Kim M.

-

This is a really nice flow that checks all my boxes. I especially like the cues for the belt work at the end - I was able to get a stretch in my outer hip and IT band like never before!

Megan N.

-

Your instruction is very clear and concise. No real need to watch and always challenging your mind to recenter and focus on not allowing the other body parts to slack.

Joany S.

What a treat. This was a perfect way to settle into a space of grateful embodiment following a busy day. As a full time student, sometimes 30 minutes is all I have for a practice. This one has left me feeling joyous, open, and ready to go into my nightly routine. I could also see it being amazing in the morning or mid-day. I will revisit this one often. Thank you ā¤ļø

Laurel S.

-

I do this one regularly! such great cueing that I can do it with audio only in a dark room, lovely, relaxing practice.

Inga T.

-

Love this!

Carolyn B.

Perfect for my mornings. Thank you!

Suni S.

I really loved this class. Will teach it here in the midwest.

Mary-Louise B.

Just right to start my day!

Kim M.

-

One of my favorites for anytime of day. Especially if my body is tight. Thank you Melanie!

Gini T.

-

An excellent, gentle way to lubricate the joints and loosen the spine after traveling or sitting for prolonged periods. I needed this!

Amanda S.

Top lass

Matthias N.

-

A lovely sequence. I loved the strap stretch. I've done this before, but Melanie's cue to push the hip to the opposite heel made an incredible difference. Thank you!

Jill C.

-

I just love everything about it.

Takako J.

-

This was super helpful as a starter. I've done beginner's yoga for a bit and this gave me a much more well-rounded stretch and feeling of calm throughout my body.

Jennifer B.

-

I so appreciate the instruction and guidance through each pose to ensure Iā€™m doing the pose correctly and being mindful, thanks so very much! šŸ™šŸ»

Lori L.

Thank you Melanie! Such an awesome teacher. I haven't practiced regularly for a few years after moving away from the Yoga Works studio in my old town. I missed it a lot and couldn't find a replacement. This online class took my right back to the studio. It's a great beginner class to get me back into regular practice.

Lauren S.

-

Love it ty !

Celeste B.

-

I haven't had a regular yoga practice for at least a 10 years focusing more on building muscle and cycling. This is the perfect class to reintroduce my body to some of the basic asanas. I love that it's only 30 minutes as that fits my lifestyle at the moment. Melanie does a great job explaining the poses and making modifications when needed. Her tone is spot on and just puts me in the right frame of mind. Plus, my hips, calves and IT bands will be thanking her in a few months!

Holly L.

-

I have not done yoga for a couple of years and I wanted to get back into it nice and slow. A perfect, gentle reintroduction. Thank you!

Lori B.

-

Thank you, Melanie, for a very pleasant and relaxing practice.

Gisela M.

-

My yoga practice started in 1972. At one time I was most comfortable in level 3 classes. Now that I'm further down the path of life I find the level 1&2 classes are more appropriate for my body now. It's been a challenge to come to this realization! Thank you Melanie for classes that are right for me now and in the comfort of my home!

kristine b.

-

I love Melanie! I've been practicing yoga for close to 30 years, but her cues and tips had me modifying my postures for the better! This is a fab short class when you just need to squeeze a little stretching into your day. Try her pre-bedtime classes too, they are a wonderful to relax you and get ready for a good night's sleep.

Rashne G.

-

Wonderful! Thank you, Melanie!

Nancy W.

-

Really enjoyed this and loved Melanie's instruction. She gives very clear and well-worded instructions that help you understand how to get the most out of stretches and poses. I learnt a lot from this one class and will be looking for more by Melanie. It was a gorgeous stretch for the end of a long day with a stiff back and shoulders. Thank you!

Amy H.

-

Lovely class with some long holds on standing poses. Very enjoyable!

Elizabeth G.

-

I am just confirming what others have already said here, Melanie's calming voice and clear instructions are very helpful. I will look for a longer class from her. Thank you Melanie!

Ajay S.

-

Great practice! This class is perfect after a week of being unable to practice. I love Melanie's sequences and cues. Her pace is just right, it allows you to really move with your breath.

Cora D.

-

This class is great after a long day at work. I feel so well rested and calm. my day has melted away. thank you Melanie!

Ana A.

-

Great class for coming back into it after 1 yr post baby! Melanie is the right amount of practical and calming, often saying things that you may think about your own limitations and accepting them. Love her affect and calming nature. Also love her moves and way of explaining.

Valerie W.

-

I love the way she conducts the class and is so well spoken.

katharine t.

-

Love your class so much!

Atie J.

-

This class is just what I need on days that I do other, more intense cardio training also. Just feels sooo good!!

Jami W.

-

Easing back into yoga after a long hiatus and this was a gentle but heat-generating way to do it. Melanie is such a pro at cueing and her voice is so soothing. Surprisingly felt worked up enough to feel warm about two-thirds of the way in. Good for stretching out the hamstrings and back.

Julia C.

-

Really great cueing! It was perfect for me to go back to basics and refine a bit. Thank you!

Robyn R.

-

I am in a short boot with a torn plantar plate injury and this practice was perfect.. I was able to modify the planks with knees down. Lori has such a calm, positive way of teaching that is so incredible. My cardio is limited for now but this was so good for me.

Rene R.

Haylie C.

Enjoyed this class immensely!

Susan H.

I found this challenging and had to miss out a few bits when my vertigo kicked in but realising how much I need to get fit. I enjoyed the pace of this class and the very clear instructions.

Shirley Y.

-

I enjoyed this class...the instructor takes you through all the basic poses while giving very useful verbal cues. I especially enjoyed the cross over leg stretch with the strap...it really helped to release my tight IT band.

Mimi E.

Love the prompting and informational instructions. Love to listen and learn from you Melanie!

Lu A.

Thanks again Melanie, you are exceptional!
