I’m coming back into yoga after a challenging 9months of illness, surgery, hip pain, and way too much bed rest. I’m stiff and weakened and feel like I’m a prebeginner! After doing some weeks of just morning stretches, I’m finally able to do this class and wow, are my mind and body grateful. I can feel the cells singing. Thanks so much

I really like this class. I am a definite beginner with limited experience and a recent (1yr) knee injury and this class felt challenging but not overwhelming. A great start for me as I get back to activity after such a long time with limited mobility.

Thank you, Melanie, for a wonderful first class! Excellent, encouraging instruction and just the right amount of everything. I used to think "online is less..." but I was wrong. I'm HOOKED and happy!

I appreciated Melanie's tone, sense of humor and repeated instructions to honor your own body and where you are today. And not only reminding us of that but including ways to actually do it. I'll definitely check out her other videos. She seemed in the moment and connected to what she was asking us (and her students with her) to be doing.
