Needed something to relax my hips, and Melanie's class did that and so much more. She has a calming voice and incorporates relaxation into every pose.

the title of this video drew me in. I feel so much better after this class and hopeful! It's time to say hello to the deeper layers of tension in my hip joints. I feel so supported and inspired by Melanie's presence and teaching style. Thank you.

My right hip was extremely tight for a few days. After I did this video, I felt the tension release instantly.

This is one of my favorite classes of Melanie's. As someone with constant hip tightness and lower back pain, this sequence reallllly helps take so much pressure off that area of my body. It builds plenty of heat, too!

I feel so much more open! I looked for a hip opener, partly because I have some hip issues, and also because I felt I just needed an emotional/tension release. This was perfect. I really appreciate the reminders to be compassionate to my body and not to push beyond what my limits are at that moment. Thank you!

Oh my goodness, this video is exactly what I needed today. I feel my mind and body relaxing after an intense day. Even though I had just 20 minutes to devote to practice today, my lower back and hips feel much better!

I really enjoyed this video! I am doing it several times a weeks. The instructions as very clear and the exercises really help to take the stress out of your hips, lower back and the legs. Highly recommended especially after a day sitting at the desk!
