Melanie Lora Meltzer
Give yourself the gift of yoga this holiday season so that you can let go of the stress and focus on the beauty of the season.
I will take this class again and again!
This is a good balanced class for level 1 , and builds up some heat in the beginning , but slows down and is soothing and calming in the end.
Melanie is my favorite theacher on Yogaworks!
Thank you , I feel great
Melanie is by far my favorite teacher on Yogaworks. I love her gentle yet strong flow, and the emphasis on alignment is the best! I always learn something from her class; this time it was how to align in Warrior 1 (which always feels like an awkward pose to me).
This was great for getting back into yoga after a break. Thank you, and happy holidays! Namaste~
In the beginning she has a very steady, easy transitioning flow with basic poses, towards the end it's more meditative and restorative. Easy to follow.
That was beautiful
With every video I watch with Melanie as the teacher, I begin to enjoy consistent yoga practice more and more! Great flow and challenge level for someone who has taken a long break from yoga and is just getting back into it. Thank you for reminding me why I do love this practice!
Don't wait until the holidays to take this one! Will definitely come back to this class as the end of the year approaches, but this is a perfect practice for a Sunday evening anytime of the year. I normally go for Level 2 but this is a great class for any level.
Great instruction & flow! :)
Fabulous routine!!! Thank you!
I usually opt for a level 2 or higher because I worry that a level 1 class won't offer enough challenge. However this is a wonderful, dynamic class that is perfect for refocusing on the basics while restoring the body. I found it especially helpful after traveling because that is when one feels the most off-balance amidst the chaos of stop and go. Really enjoyed this class and still worked up enough heat to feel thoroughly challenged.
Such a great practice during this very stressful and cold time.
Loved ending with the inversions.
So rejuvenating and balancing amidst a crazy day. I finished and felt energized and peaceful. Love it!
Despite its being July right now, I found this holiday practice to be very balancing, informative and well-rounded. It was a nice, slow-paced class long with a lovely restorative and meditative finish. Just what I needed today to wind down my week! Melanie, you have such a calm, soothing voice!
Wonderful beginners class - I can see myself coming back to this one over and over. Thanks Melanie, really enjoying your classes.
Melanie stays true to the Vinyasa Flow tradition and breaks it down intelligently so that its manageable by beginners. Tempo is just right, her instructions are well articulated with an appropriate goal/theme to go along with the poses.
